Record life in high-definition motion with ease. A simple touch of the screen in Movie Mode is all it takes to start recording your movie.

Anti-blur: Motion blur reduction reduces the effect of camera shake to compensate for camera and subject movement. High ISO (up to 1600) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images caused by fast-moving subjects or low light.

Easy Auto mode with Auto Scene Auto Selector: the camera automatically chooses the optimum scene mode for the situation you’re shooting in, so you get stunning results every time.

EXPEED C2: Nikon's advanced image processing system optimizes all camera technologies for quick response, superior performance and maximum image quality.

USB and AC charging: the camera can be charged from your computer with the USB cable included or via a regular power outlet.
