Notice for Customers in the U.S.A. and Canada
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry of Canada
(IC)
Declaration of Conformity
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules and Industry Canada licenceexempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of this
device.
FCC/IC RF Exposure Statement
This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however,
that these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless
devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range
while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by
heating tissue), exposure of low-level RF that does not produce heating effects
causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF
exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested
that some biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been
confirmed by additional research.

Formatting a Memory Card
The first time you insert a memory card that has been used in another device into
this camera, make sure to format it with this camera. Insert the memory card into the
camera, press the d button, and select Format card in the setup menu (A76).
Preparing for Shooting
• With the battery’s positive and negative terminals oriented correctly, move
the orange battery latch (3), and fully insert the battery (4).
• Slide the memory card in until it clicks into place (5).
• Be careful not to insert the battery or memory card upside-down or
backward, as this could cause a malfunction.

Turn the camera off and make sure that the power-on lamp and monitor have
turned off, and then open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover.
• Move the battery latch to eject the battery.
• Gently push the memory card into the camera to partially eject the memory
card.
• Be careful when handling the camera, battery, and memory card
immediately after using the camera, as they may become hot .
Memory Cards and Internal Memory

Charging AC Adapter
Electrical outlet
Preparing for Shooting
USB cable (included)
Charge lamp
If a plug adapter* is included with your camera, securely connect it to the
Charging AC Adapter. Once the two are connected, attempting to forcibly
remove the plug adapter could damage the product.
* The shape of the plug adapter varies according to the country or region in
which the camera was purchased. This step can be omitted if the plug
adapter comes permanently bonded to the Charging AC Adapter.
• The charge lamp slowly flashes green to indicate that the battery is charging.
• When charging is complete, the charge lamp turns off. It takes about 1 hour
and 50 minutes to charge a fully exhausted battery.
• The battery cannot be charged when the charge lamp quickly flashes green,
possibly due to one of the reasons described below.
- The ambient temperature is not suited to charging.
- The USB cable or Charging AC Adapter is not properly connected.
- The battery is damaged.

UC-E21 could result in overheating, fire or electric shock.
• Make sure that the plugs are properly oriented. Do not insert or remove the plugs
at an angle when connecting or disconnecting them.
B
Notes About Charging the Battery
• The camera can be operated while the battery is charging, but the charging time
increases.
• If the battery level is extremely low, you may not be able to operate the camera
while the battery is charging.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other
than Charging AC Adapter EH-71P, and do not use a commercially available USBAC adapter or a battery charger for a mobile phone. Failure to observe this
precaution could result in overheating or in damage to the camera.
Charging Using a Computer or Battery Charger

Notes About Target Finding AF
• Depending on shooting conditions, the subject that the camera determines to be
the main subject may vary.
• The main subject may not be detected when using certain White balance
settings.
• The camera may not detect the main subject appropriately in the following
situations:
- When the subject is very dark or bright
- When the main subject lacks clearly defined colors
- When the shot is framed so that the main subject is at the edge of the monitor
- When the main subject is composed of a repeating pattern

Using Face Detection
In the following shooting modes, the camera
uses face detection to automatically focus on
human faces.
• x (scene auto selector) mode (A23)
• Portrait or Night portrait scene mode
(A22)
25m 0s
• Smart portrait mode (A35)
880
• When AF area mode (A85) in A (auto)
mode (A21) is set to Face priority
If the camera detects more than one face, a double border is displayed around
the face that the camera focuses on, and single borders are displayed around
the other faces.
If the shutter button is pressed halfway when no faces are detected:
• In x (scene auto selector) mode, the focus area changes depending on the
scene.
• In Portrait and Night portrait scene modes or in smart portrait mode, the
camera focuses in the center of the frame.
• In A (auto) mode, the camera selects the focus area containing the subject
closest to the camera.
Notes About Face Detection
• The camera’s ability to detect faces depends on a variety of factors, including the
direction in which the faces are looking.
• The camera cannot detect faces in the following situations:
- When faces are partially hidden by sunglasses or otherwise obstructed
- When faces take up too much or too little of the frame
Shooting Features

53
Using Skin Softening
When the shutter is released while using one of the shooting modes listed
below, the camera detects human faces and processes the image to soften
facial skin tones (up to 3 faces).
• Smart portrait mode (A35)
- The skin softening level can be adjusted by the glamour retouch function.
• x (scene auto selector) mode (A23)
• Portrait or Night portrait scene mode (A22)
Editing functions such as Skin softening can be applied to saved images by
using Glamour retouch (A66) even after shooting.
B
Notes About Skin Softening
• It may take more time than usual to save images after shooting.
• Under some shooting conditions, the desired skin softening results may not be
achieved, and skin softening may be applied to areas of the image where there are
no faces.
Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus
Shooting Features
54
The camera may not focus as expected in the following situations. In rare cases,
the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or the focus
indicator is displayed in green:
• Subject is very dark
• Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g. the sun
behind the subject makes that subject appear very dark)
• No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g. a portrait subject
wearing a white shirt is standing in front of a white wall)
• Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g. the subject is
inside a cage)
• Subjects with repeating patterns (window blinds, buildings with multiple
rows of similarly shaped windows, etc.)
• Subject is moving rapidly
In the situations noted above, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway
to refocus several times, or focus on another subject positioned at the same
distance from the camera as the actual desired subject, and use focus lock
(A55).
Focus Lock
Focus lock shooting is recommended when the camera does not activate the
focus area that contains the desired subject.

Notes About Recorded Movies
B
Recording and Playing Back Movies
• There may be some degradation in image quality when digital zoom is used.
• The sounds of zoom control operation, zoom, autofocus lens drive movement,
movie vibration reduction, and aperture operation when brightness changes may
be recorded.
• The following phenomena may be seen in the monitor while recording movies.
These phenomena are saved in the recorded movies.
- Banding may occur in images under fluorescent, mercury-vapor, or sodiumvapor lighting.
- Subjects that move quickly from one side of the frame to the other, such as a
moving train or car, may appear skewed.
- The entire movie image may be skewed when the camera is panned.
- Lighting or other bright areas may leave residual images when the camera is
moved.
• Depending on the distance to the subject or the amount of zoom applied, colored
stripes may appear on subjects with repeating patterns (fabrics, lattice windows,
etc.) during movie recording and playback. This occurs when the pattern in the
subject and the layout of the image sensor interfere with each other; it is not a
malfunction.
Notes About Vibration Reduction During Movie Recording
• When Movie VR (A102) in the movie menu is set to On (hybrid), the angle of
view (i.e., the area visible in the frame) becomes narrower during movie recording.
• When using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting, set Movie VR to Off
to prevent potential errors caused by this function.
B
Notes About Autofocus for Movie Recording
Autofocus may not perform as expected (A54). Should this occur, try the following:
1. Set Autofocus mode in the movie menu to Single AF (default setting) before
starting movie recording.
2. Frame another subject (positioned at the same distance from the camera as the
intended subject) in the center of the frame, press the b (e) button to start
recording, and modify the composition.

Notes About the Monitor
• Monitors and electronic viewfinders are constructed with extremely high precision;
at least 99.99% of pixels are effective, with no more than 0.01% being missing or
defective. Hence while these displays may contain pixels that are always lit (white,
red, blue, or green) or always off (black), this is not a malfunction and has no effect
on images recorded with the device.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• Do not apply pressure to the monitor, as this could cause damage or malfunction.
Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury caused by broken
glass and to prevent the liquid crystal from the display touching the skin or
entering the eyes or mouth.
The Battery
Precautions for Use
• Note that the battery may become hot after use.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 40°C
(104°F) as this could cause damage or malfunction.
• If you notice any abnormalities such as excessive heat, smoke, or an unusual smell
coming from the battery, immediately discontinue use and consult your retailer or
Nikon-authorized service representative.
• After removing the battery from the camera or optional battery charger, put the
battery in a plastic bag, etc. in order to insulate it.
Charging the Battery
Technical Notes
Check the battery level before using the camera and replace or charge the battery if
necessary.
• Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to
95°F) before use.
• A high battery temperature may prevent the battery from charging properly or
completely, and may reduce battery performance. Note that the battery may
become hot after use; wait for the battery to cool before charging.
When charging the battery inserted into this camera using the Charging AC
Adapter or a computer, the battery is not charged at battery temperatures below
0°C (32°F) or above 50°C (122°F).
• Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in
reduced battery performance.
• The battery temperature may increase during charging. However, this is not a
malfunction.
Carrying Spare Batteries
Whenever possible, carry fully charged spare batteries when taking pictures on
important occasions.
132
Using the Battery When Cold
On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. If an exhausted battery is
used at a low temperature, the camera may not turn on. Keep spare batteries in a
warm place and exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover
some of its charge.
Battery Terminals
Dirt on the battery terminals may prevent the camera from functioning. Should the
battery terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.
Charging an Exhausted Battery
Turning the camera on or off while an exhausted battery is inserted in the camera
may result in reduced battery life. Charge the exhausted battery before use.
Storing the Battery
• Always remove the battery from the camera or optional battery charger when it is
not being used. Minute amounts of current are drawn from the battery while it is in
the camera, even when not in use. This may result in excessive battery drain and
complete loss of function.
• Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust it
before returning it to storage.
• Put the battery in a plastic bag, etc. in order to insulate it and store it in a cool place.
The battery should be stored in a dry location with an ambient temperature of 15°C
to 25°C (59°F to 77°F). Do not store the battery in hot or extremely cold locations.
Battery Life
A marked drop in the time a fully charged battery retains its charge, when used at
room temperature, indicates that the battery needs to be replaced. Purchase a new
battery.
Recycling Used Batteries
Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a valuable
resource. Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local regulations.
The Charging AC Adapter
Technical Notes
• The Charging AC Adapter EH-71P is for use only with compatible devices. Do not
use with another make or model of device.
• Do not use any USB cable other than the UC-E21. Using a USB cable other than the
UC-E21 could result in overheating, fire or electric shock.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other
than Charging AC Adapter EH-71P, and do not use a commercially available USBAC adapter or a battery charger for a mobile phone. Failure to observe this
precaution could result in overheating or in damage to the camera.
• The EH-71P is compatible with AC 100–240 V, 50/60 Hz electrical outlets. When
using in other countries, use a plug adapter (commercially available) as necessary.
For more information about plug adapters, consult your travel agency.
133
Memory Cards
Precautions for Use
• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (A153) for
recommended memory cards.
• Be sure to follow the precautions described in the documentation included with
the memory card.
• Do not put labels or stickers on memory cards.
Formatting
• Do not format the memory card using a computer.
• The first time you insert a memory card that has been used in another device into
this camera, be sure to format it with this camera. We recommend formatting new
memory cards with this camera before using them with this camera.
• Note that formatting a memory card permanently deletes all images and
other data on the memory card. Be sure to make copies of any images you wish
to keep before formatting the memory card.
• If the message Card is not formatted. Format card? is displayed when the
camera is turned on, the memory card must be formatted. If there is data that you
do not want to delete, select No. Copy the necessary data to a computer, etc. If you
want to format the memory card, select Yes. The confirmation dialog will be
displayed. To start formatting, press the k button.
• Do not perform the following during formatting, while data is being written to or
deleted from the memory card, or during data transfer to a computer. Failure to
observe this precaution could result in the loss of data or in damage to the camera
or memory card:
- Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover to remove/insert the battery
or memory card.
- Turn off the camera.
- Disconnect the AC adapter.

Cleaning and Storage
Cleaning
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Lens
Avoid touching glass parts with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with
a blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one
end that is pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To
remove fingerprints or other stains that cannot be removed with a
blower, wipe the lens with a soft cloth, using a spiral motion that
starts at the center of the lens and working toward the edges. If this
fails, clean the lens using a cloth lightly dampened with commercial
lens cleaner.
Monitor
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other
stains, clean the monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to
apply pressure.
Body
• Use a blower to remove dust, dirt, or sand, then wipe gently with a
soft, dry cloth.
• After using the camera at the beach or other sandy or dusty
environment, wipe off any sand, dust, or salt with a dry cloth lightly
dampened with fresh water and dry thoroughly.
Note that foreign matter inside the camera could cause
damage not covered by the warranty.
Storage
Technical Notes
Remove the battery if the camera will not be used for an extended period. To
prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a month.
Turn the camera on and release the shutter a few times before putting the
camera away again. Do not store the camera in any of the following locations:
• Places that are poorly ventilated or subject to humidity of over 60%
• Exposed to temperatures above 50°C (122°F) or below –10°C (14°F)
