Key features

Generous 3-inch vari-angle LCD monitor: can be tilted up by as much as 90 degrees, or down by as much as 45 degrees. With anti-reflection coating.

NIKKOR wideangle 24x zoom lens with super-telephoto capability, offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution. (35mm [135] film format equivalent: 26 - 624mm.)

4x anti-blur automatically counters blurred images in four different ways. Sensor-shift VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake. High ISO (up to 6400*) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images with fast-moving subjects or in low-light. Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.

Exposure Modes (P/S/A/M) for greater creative control. Programmed Auto (P), Shutter-priority Auto (S), Aperture-priority Auto (A) and Manual (M).

Smart portrait system: advanced automatic features for perfect portraits. Smile Timer and Blink Warning which alerts you when someone had their eyes closed.

Electronic viewfinder helps you frame images accurately throughout the entire zoom range and enables sharp, steady shooting, even in bright sunlight.

High-speed continuous shooting with pre-shooting cache: shoot up to 45 continuous shots at 15 fps. Gives you the option to press the shutter halfway and record the moments that take place before you press the shutter fully, so that you never have to worry about being a second too late again.

12.1 megapixel resolution lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, crop creatively and produce stunningly sharp poster-size enlargements.

Advanced Face Priority AF with in-camera Red-eye Fix lets you quickly detect and focus accurately on up to 12 faces in the frame, and corrects false eye color due to flash the instant you take the shot.

Quick Retouch lets you enhance images taken under poor conditions so they appear sharp and vibrant. The original image stays intact and the camera quickly creates a duplicate image with the best balance of contrast and saturation.

D-lighting creates pleasing results by correcting strong shadows to rescue underexposed images, or shots taken with excessive backlight.

 

* ISO 6400 is available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.
