Key features

Sophisticated, pocket-size camera with distinctive two-tone design.

Large 8.7 cm (3.5-inch) Organic LED (819K-dot) multi-touch screen: this ultra-high resolution screen offers a wide viewing angle, and boasts Nikon’s Clear Color Display technology that reduces power consumption and minimizes reflections, even in bright sunlight. Features a glass cover to protect against scratches and fingerprints.

NIKKOR 5x zoom lens offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution. (35mm film-format equivalent: 35-175mm.)

5x anti-blur automatically counters blurred images in five different ways. Hybrid VR (Lens-shift and Electronic Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake and can be set simultaneously for additional protection. 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.

Crisp HD (720p) movie clips: capture the action at an impressive 30 frames per second and playback your movies on your TV using the camera's HDMi socket.

Intuitive multi-touch control panel: simply touch your subject on the screen to set the focus or take the picture, pinch your fingers in or out to zoom in on a subject, and use two fingers at once to scroll quickly through multiple images and movies. Several handwritten memo and paint functions make it easy to personalize your images.

Built-in filters and editing functions: quickly and easily edit images inside the camera. Offers a range of filter effects including Fisheye, Soft Focus, and a clever Miniature Effect that makes images look as if they are photos of miniature scale models.

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

EXPEED C2 image processing system provides enhanced movie recording, high-sensitivity performance and maximum image quality.

Smart portrait system: advanced automatic features for perfect portraits. Smile Timer takes the shot when your chosen subject smiles. Blink Proof alerts you when someone had their eyes closed. Skin softening adjusts uneven skin tones on people's faces for smoother looking skin. 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.

Easy Auto mode automatically selects the optimum Scene mode for popular photographic situations.

17 scene modes automatically optimize settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations.

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


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