Product Features in Detail

NIKKOR 38x optical zoom lens
Capture every detail near or far, with the incredible range of the 38x optical zoom – extendable to 76x Dynamic Fine Zoom – giving wide-angle coverage from 22.5-855mm.

High-performance VR (vibration reduction)
You’ll always take beautifully crisp photos and smooth movies with highly effective vibration reduction identifying and compensating for camera shake even at full zoom.

Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC support
Stay social and share fun moments with family and friends instantly, by using the one-touch Wi-Fi button or tapping your NFC-enabled camera to your smart device.

Back-illuminated 16MP CCD image sensor
Exceptional performance is guaranteed, even when you’re shooting in low light conditions. The sensitive image sensor always gives you sharp shots with clear details.

7.5-cm/3.0-in 921k-dot LCD tilt screen
Take a different perspective with the tilt screen by shooting low-angle for a child’s eye-line or high-angle over crowds. Superb visibility makes framing shots simple.

Moon and Bird-watching modes
Easily take amazing moon shots and stunning birdlife images, with Scene auto selector enabling simple focusing and settings for these hard-to-shoot subjects.

Full HD movies
When that magic moment happens, you can switch easily from stills to beautifully smooth Full HD movies (1080/60p) at the touch of a button. Save stills during recording and edit movies in playback to delete unwanted footage.

Snap back zoom button
If you’re at full zoom and your subject moves out of frame, you can easily recapture it by pressing a one-touch button next to the zoom control that instantly takes you back to wide-angle focus.

Smart portrait mode
Enhance your images so everyone always looks great, with alerts and effects during shooting like Blink proof and Skin softening, or retouch options during playback like Glare reduction or Whiten eyes.

Side zoom control
Always get smooth movies and clear images with the side zoom control that lets you operate the zoom with your left hand, preventing camera shake and maintaining stability.

Pre focus
When the action changes, you need fast and precise focus on your subject. Pre focus activates immediately upon detecting your subject’s face, even with zoom shooting or in low light.

Target finding AF
Your camera does the work of automatically identifying and focusing on your subject for you, so you’re free to concentrate on the creative part – composing an impactful shot.

18 Scene modes
Your camera can guide you to the best settings for your shooting situation. Select one of 18 different scenes that describe popular photographic styles and locations and the settings will automatically be optimised for you.

Outstanding image quality is guaranteed with Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing system ensuring high-speed operation and high-sensitivity performance.
