Key features

High-power NIKKOR 26x zoom lens (22.5–585mm) with extreme wide-angle to super-telephoto coverage. From sweeping vistas to distant action, enjoy the freedom to capture it all.

Easy operation: enjoy effortless shooting with easy-to-reach control buttons and Easy Auto mode, which optimizes all settings according to the light you are shooting in.

Side zoom lever: use the side zoom lever to maintain a steady grip on the camera when shooting. The less the camera shakes when you hold it, the sharper your images will be.

16 MP: the 16-megapixel CCD image sensor lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, make creative image crops and produce superb poster-size enlargements.

Crisp HD 720p video recording: record life in motion with ease. A dedicated movie-record button makes it easy to begin recording, and you can use the optical zoom with autofocus while filming.

7.5 cm (3.0-in.) 921k-dot LCD screen: whether you shoot in bright sunlight or in low light, the large, high-resolution LCD monitor with wide viewing angle and anti-reflective coating offers clear shooting and playback.

Anti-blur. Lens shift VR (vibration reduction) counters the effects of camera shake. High ISO (up to 1600) light sensitivity for sharper images in low light. Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best shot selector (BSS) selects the sharpest of up to ten sequential shots.

3D shooting mode: create a 3D image that can be played back on 3D-capable TVs and computers.

Smart portrait system: snap perfect portraits every time. Smile timer takes the shot when your subject smiles. Blink proof alerts you when someone’s eyes were closed. Skin softening adjusts uneven skin tones for smoother-looking skin. Red-eye Fix corrects false eye color due to the flash.

Easy sharing: connect directly to an HDTV via the camera’s built-in HDMI connector.

19 scene modes: 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.

AA-size batteries: your camera is powered by four AA-size batteries, which are readily available across the world.

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

Wireless transfer: compatible with Eye-Fi X2 (or later) cards. Transmit your digital photos (in JPEG format) directly to your phone or personal computer, and then connect to the Internet to take advantage of Nikon’s photo sharing service, my Picturetown.
