Key features

NIKKOR 7x zoom lens offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution. (35mm [135] film-format equivalent: 37 – 260mm.)

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.

Scene Auto Selector selects the optimum Scene mode for popular photographic situations.

Smart portrait system: advanced automatic features for perfect portraits. Smile Mode takes the shot when your chosen subject smiles. Blink Warning alerts you when someone had their eyes closed. Blink Proof takes two pictures and saves the one where your subject’s eyes are open.

Large 2.7-inch LCD monitor with wide viewing angle and anti-reflection coating to enhance visibility in bright sunlight.

Quick Retouch lets you enhance images taken under difficult 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.

12.0 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.

15 scene modes offer optimized settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations.

Sport continuous shooting mode: shoot up to 30* continuous shots at 13 fps (H), 6 fps (M), or 4 fps (L).

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

Movie recording with sound.


* ISO 3200 and 6400 are available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.
