Vari-angle monitor

Vari-angle monitor

Shoot from any angle with the 7.5 cm (3.0-in.) 921k-dot monitor with wide viewing angle and anti-reflective coating. Offers 100% RGB color reproduction and high contrast ratio.

Fast EXPEED C2 image processing system provides enhanced image quality and movie recording, and delivers superb sensitivity performance with reduced noise, even at high ISO.

Full HD (1080p) movie recording with stereo sound: control settings like aperture and ISO in Custom Movie mode. You can use the optical zoom when filming, and the camera has an external microphone input.

Lens-shift VR: Nikon’s advanced vibration reduction system reduces the effect of camera shake in real time and lets you use shutter speeds that are up to four stops slower.

High ISO sensitivity (extendable up to 6400, equivalent): reduces the risk of blurred images caused by fast-moving subjects or low light. ISO can be set manually from 80 to 6400 ISO equivalent using the Hi1 setting.

Quick response for streamlined workflow and stress-free shooting. Switch quickly between functions, and enjoy a near-instant start-up, impressive AF speed and short shutter release time-lag.

Advanced Nikon lens technology ensures outstanding precision, sharp resolution and high contrast. Two ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration, a Neutral Density filter enables greater exposure control and the seven blade rounded iris aperture allows beautifully natural background blur.

Total control: PSAM exposure modes enable greater creative control. Three user modes let you recall your preferred camera settings instantly. Two Customizable function buttons let you bypass the menu and set shortcuts to your favorite camera settings.

Front and rear command dials: offer easy access to key camera settings and smooth manual control.

RAW format shooting: images can be shot and saved in high-quality NRW format, even when using in-camera features such as continuous shooting and Picture Controls.

Flexible high-speed continuous shooting: choose from three different Continuous mode rates of 8 fps (for up to approx. 6 frames), 4 fps (for up to approx. 6 frames) and 1 fps (for up to approx. 30 frames).

Effects and filters: shoot photos and movies with special effects, or apply a filter to photos you’ve taken. Effects include Painting, which makes images look as if they were painted. Filters include Selective Color, which creates monochrome photos with flashes of color applied to the color of your choice.

Wireless transfer: compatible with Eye-Fi X2 (or later) cards for direct transmission to smart phones and SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards.

Compatible accessories: get the most out of your shooting with Nikon accessories including Speedlight flash units, the ML-L3 remote control for remote shutter release, 40.5 mm filters, the MC-DC2 Remote Cord and the GP-1 GPS unit.
