    New (to me) D3500 got a workout on Saturday

    In the Spring, the City of Mckinney, TX holds what it calls its "Arts in Bloom" event. It's staged in the historic downtown area where the streets are closed to vehicle traffic for the event. Local and regional artisans and small businesses of every stripe display their wares for viewing and sale. There isn't any cost to visit the event. It's basically a street fair and there's food and drink available. Also, there are activities like face painting and art projects for kids, too.

    The event didn't happen in 2020 for obvious reasons. This year it looked to me like the pent up desire to be out about resulted in a larger number of folks showing up than what I remember from 2019.

    Anyway, I took my recently acquired refurbished D3500 and AF-P DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens and walked around, shooting as I went. Young and old alike were having a good time.

    Bet you had a nice time giving it a workout! So how did the combo work for you? And how does it differ from your D7500?

    What a testimony to my D3500! But I wonder you use AF or MF and set in which mode (P, A, S, or M) to shoot all these photos?

    What a great series of shots, including from a technical standpoint!

    Up until recently I had a D3300 as my sole camera, with that lens in continuous use. I was always impressed by how well it worked. Nikon's entry level bodies may not have all the functions and features of its higher end models, but if you're just a casual shooter or a hobbyist on a budget (me), you certainly can't complain about the quality of the pictures they produce, even with a kit lens.
