Bright NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens (24–120mm)

7.5-cm (3.0-in.) 921k-dot LCD screen

Whether you shoot in bright sunlight or in low light, the large LCD screen with anti-reflective coating offers sharp contrast and clear viewing.

7.5-cm (3.0-in.) 921k-dot LCD screen

Customizable function button (Fn): bypass the menu and set a shortcut to your favorite camera setting.

Back-illuminated 12 MP CMOS sensor (1/1.7-in.): with each pixel receiving more light, this large, highly sensitive image sensor works with the EXPEED C2 processor to deliver clear shots in any light.

Advanced lens-shift Vibration Reduction: Nikon’s second-generation vibration reduction system reduces the effect of camera shake in real time, allowing you to use shutter speeds up to three stops slower. With new Active mode for clear shots even from moving vehicles.

Wi-Fi compatible: use Wi-Fi to transfer your high-quality images and movies to your smart device* via an optional Wi-Fi dongle (WU-1a).

Full HD (1080/60i) movie recording: a dedicated video-record button makes it easy to begin filming in Full HD at 50, 30 or 25 fps, and you can continue to shoot photos while recording.

RAW (NRW) data processing: supports compressed RAW (NRW format) image data, enabling you to process and adjust unadulterated images in-camera.

Built-in Global Positioning System (GPS): record the exact location (latitude and longitude) of images as a ‘geotag’, review point-of-interest (POI) information in playback, or use the GPS to log your route for later reviewing (via computer).

High ISO (100-3200) light sensitivity (manually extendable up to 12800 using the Hi 2 setting): enables faster shutter speeds for finely detailed images with minimal noise when you shoot fast-moving subjects or take pictures in low light.

Advanced movie features, including iFrame format: use the optical zoom with autofocus when recording, and film in slow or fast motion using speeds of up to 120 fps. Connect directly to an HDTV via the built-in HDMI connector.

Macro mode: allows you to focus on subjects really close-up (effectively from just 3 cm distance) to capture the smallest of details.

Auto HDR mode: capture images with impressive tonal detail in any situation when you shoot in HDR mode. The camera combines two shots taken at different exposures during a single shutter release to create an image with wide dynamic range and rich color gradation.

Easy Panorama 360°/180°: pan vertically or horizontally to create dynamic panoramas.

3D shooting mode: create a 3D image of any still subject to be played back on 3D-capable TVs and computers. The camera combines two images taken from different positions; the second shot is taken automatically when the camera detects that you are in the correct position.

Mode dial with manual exposure modes (P/S/A/M) and User mode: to recall your preferred camera settings instantly.

High-speed continuous shooting: shoot up to 10 full-resolution shots at 10 fps, or up to 30 full-resolution shots at 1 fps.

Fast and accurate AF: when you want to capture complex subjects, you can shoot in manual focus with a 99-point autofocus system for extra-sharp results.

Subject Tracking AF: capture sharp shots of subjects that can’t or won’t stay still. Subject Tracking AF keeps the camera focused on the selected subject even if it is moving around.

Retouch menu: enhance your photos on the spot with a wide range of filter effects. Examples include Selective Color, which converts your image to monochrome and then adds a splash of the color of your choice, while Cross Screen adds a starry effect to bright objects.

20 scene modes: automatically optimize the camera settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations. Achieve great shots just by selecting the mode that matches your situation.

EXPEED C2: Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing system provides high-speed operation, enhanced movie recording, high-sensitivity performance and maximum image quality.
