The highly sensitive image sensor works with the EXPEED C2 processor to capture fast, clear images in all light conditions – even low light.
Wide-angle coverage (25-300mm) and macro shooting from approx 2-cm/0.8-in, so you can capture all the action or get up close and personal.
Create the perfect self-portrait pose with a self-timer, while hand movements control the zoom, shutter release and movie recording.
Record your best moments on video at 1080/50i, with optical zoom and stereo sound. Gesture control makes it all the more fun.
Add a special effect like soft portrait or mirror effect straight after shooting, at the touch of a button.
Experiment with up to 30 different effects (including 19 patterns), ranging from toy camera to cross process, selective color, painting and rich color.
Target-finding AF: Enjoy fast and precise autofocus as your camera automatically identifies and focuses on your subject, ensuring you get clear shots even with moving subjects.
18 scene modes: Let the camera do the work for you by automatically optimizing settings in your chosen scene mode or let it run the show with Scene Auto Selector.
Blur reduction: Lens Shift VR (vibration reduction) counters camera shake, while motion detection and consecutive shot combining technology all contribute to sharper images.
Consecutive Shot Combining: In Night Portrait and Night Landscape scene modes, consecutive shots are combined with minimal noise and blur to give you a perfectly exposed image in low light.
High ISO (125-3200) light sensitivity: Guarantees great results and more finely detailed images when you’re shooting fast-moving subjects or taking pictures in low light.
Easy Panorama 360°/180°: Never miss out on an amazing landscape. Tilt vertically or pan horizontally to create inspiring and dynamic panoramas.
High-speed continuous shooting: Capture all the action as it happens, with speedy shooting rates of 10 fps for up to 7 frames, so you always get the perfect shot.
EXPEED C2: High-speed operation is guaranteed with Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing system, with high sensitivity performance and exceptional image quality.
