using commercial deletion software, or format the device and then completely refill it with images
containing no private information (for example, images of empty sky). Be sure to also replace any
images selected for the Select an image option in the Welcome screen setting (A98). Care
should be taken to avoid injury or damage to property when physically destroying data storage
devices.

Notes About Digital Zoom
• Digital zoom cannot be used with some settings and shooting modes (E77).
• When digital zoom is in effect, the camera focuses on the subject at the center of the frame.
Focusing
This camera uses autofocus to focus automatically when shooting. The focus area varies
depending on the shooting mode. Here, we will explain how to use focus areas and focus
lock.
AF Area
When using A (auto) mode, or when using Scene auto selector for the scene mode, the
camera performs the focus operations described below when the shutter-release button is
pressed halfway.
• If a face is detected, it is framed by the double border
indicating the active focus area. When the subject is in
focus, the double border turns green.

• If no faces are detected, the camera automatically selects
one or more of the nine focus areas containing the subject
closest to the camera. When the subject is in focus, the
active focus areas (up to nine) glow green.
67
Face Detection
When the camera is pointed at a human face in the shooting
modes as shown below, the camera automatically detects the
face and focuses on it. When the camera detects more than
one face, the double border (focus area) is displayed around
the face that is focused on, and single borders around the
others.

When taking images of people and pets together, the camera can detect a combined total of up
to 12 human and pet faces.
If the camera detects a human face and a pet face in the same shot, it focuses on the pet’s face.
• When using A (auto) mode, if you press the shutter-release button halfway while no
faces are detected or while framing a shot with no faces in it, the camera selects the focus
area (up to nine areas) containing the subject closest to the camera.
• When Scene auto selector is selected, the focus area changes depending on which
scene the camera selects.
• If no faces are detected when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway in Portrait or
Night portrait scene mode or smart portrait mode, the camera focuses on the subject at
the center of the frame.
• In Pet portrait scene mode, the camera focuses on a pet face if one is detected. If no pet
faces are detected, the camera focuses on the subject at the center of the frame.
Notes About Face Detection Function
• The camera’s ability to detect faces depends on a variety of factors, including the direction in
which the faces are looking. The camera may be unable to 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
• When the frame includes more than one face, the faces detected by the camera and the face on
which the camera focuses depend on a variety of factors, including the direction in which the
faces are looking.
• In some rare cases, the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the double border glows
green (A71). Should this occur, switch to A (auto) mode and set AF area mode to Manual or
Center. Try refocusing on another subject positioned at the same distance from the camera as the
actual portrait subject (A70).

Focus Lock
Use focus lock to focus on off-center subjects when center is selected for AF area mode. To
focus on off-center subjects when Center is selected for AF area mode in the shooting
menu (A63) in A (auto) mode, use focus lock as described below.

• Be sure that the distance between the camera and the
subject does not change.

Press the shutter-release button the rest of
the way down to take the image.
B
Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus
Autofocus may not perform as expected in the following situations. In some rare cases, the subject
may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or the focus indicator glows 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)
• Regular geometric patterns (e.g. window blinds or windows on a skyscraper)
• 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 in auto mode and use focus lock (A70). When using focus lock,
be sure that the distance between the camera and the subject with which focus was locked is the
same as that for the actual subject.

Note About Recording Images and Saving Movies
B
Recording Movies
• Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended when recording
movies (F22). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when memory cards with a lower Speed
Class ratings are used.
• When recording movies with f 720/30p selected for Movie options, the angle of view (the
area captured in the recorded movie) is smaller than when taking still images.
• When Electronic VR (A98) is set to Auto in the setup menu, the angle of view (the area
captured in the recorded movie) is smaller than when taking still images.
• Optical zoom cannot be adjusted once movie recording begins.
• Rotate the zoom control during recording to enable digital zoom. Subjects can be magnified up to
4× the optical zoom ratio applied before movie recording began.
• There is some degradation in image quality when digital zoom is used. When recording ends,
digital zoom turns off.
• In some cases, movie recordings may capture the sounds of the camera, such as the sounds
produced by the zoom control operation, the movement of the lens during autofocus, or the
aperture control when the brightness changes.
• Smear (F3) visible in the monitor with movie recording will be recorded with movies. Avoiding
bright objects such as the sun, reflections of the sun, and electric lights when recording movies is
recommended.
• When recording or playing back movies, colored stripes (interference patterns or moiré) may
appear on subjects that have a regular, repeating grid, such as pattern of weave in clothing or
windows in a building, depending on the shooting distance or zoom ratio. This phenomenon
occurs when the subject’s pattern interferes with the camera sensor grid, and it does not indicate
a malfunction.
Recording and Playing Back Movies
The indicator showing the number of exposures remaining or the indicator showing the maximum
movie length flashes while images are being recorded or while a movie is being saved. Do not open
the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the battery or memory card while an

memory card.

Note About Autofocus for Movie Recording
When shooting a subject that is not suitable for autofocus (A71), the camera may not be able to
focus properly on the subject. Follow the procedure below if you are trying to shoot this type of
subject for movies.
1. Set Autofocus mode in the movie menu to A Single AF (default setting) before starting
movie recording.
2. Frame a different subject (positioned at the same distance from the camera as the intended
subject) at the center of the frame, press the b (e movie-record) button to start recording, and
modify the composition.

Notes About Camera Temperature
• The camera temperature may increase significantly when used for
an extended period of time for movie recording, etc. or when
used in places with high ambient temperature.
• If the camera becomes extremely hot while recording a movie,
the camera automatically terminates recording after ten seconds.
The camera monitor displays the number of seconds (B10s)
remaining until automatic termination is activated.
After the camera stops recording, it turns itself off. Wait until the
internal temperature decreases before using it again.

White Balance (Adjusting Hue)
Select A (auto) mode M d button M White balance M k button
The color of light reflected from an object varies with the color of the light source. The human
brain is able to adapt to changes in the color of the light source, with the result that white
objects appear white whether seen in the shade, direct sunlight, or under incandescent
lighting. Digital cameras can mimic this adjustment by processing images according to the
color of the light source. This is known as “white balance.” For natural colors, choose a white
balance setting that matches the light source before shooting. Although the default setting,
Auto, can be used under most types of lighting, the white balance setting suited to a
particular light source can be specified manually to achieve more accurate results.

Preset Manual
The preset manual option is effective with mixed lighting or to compensate for light sources
with a strong color cast when the desired effect has not been achieved with white balance
settings like Auto and Incandescent (for example, to make images taken under a lamp with
a red shade look as though they had been shot under white light). Follow the procedure
below to measure the white balance value according to the light source when shooting.

Notes About Printing Shooting Date and Photo Information
When the Date and Info options are enabled in the print order option, shooting date and photo
information are printed on images when a DPOF-compatible (F21) printer which supports printing
of shooting date and photo information is used.
• Photo information cannot be printed when the camera is connected directly to a printer, via the
included USB cable, for DPOF printing (E31).
• Note that Date and Info settings are reset when the Print order option is displayed.
• The date printed is that saved when the image was captured.
Changing the camera’s date using the Time zone and date
option in the setup menu after an image has been captured has
no effect on the date printed on the image.

• If a computer enters sleep mode while charging, charging stops and the camera may turn off.
• When disconnecting the camera from a computer, turn the camera off and then disconnect the
USB cable.
• It takes about 3 hours to charge a fully exhausted battery. Charging time increases when images
are transferred while the battery is charging.
• When the camera is connected to a computer, an application installed on the computer, such as
Nikon Transfer 2, may start. If the camera was connected to the computer for the sole purpose of
charging the battery, exit the application.
• The camera turns off automatically if there is no communication with the computer for 30 minutes
after the battery has finished charging.
• Depending on the computer specifications, settings, and status, it may not be possible to charge
the battery in the camera via computer connection.

Maximizing Camera Life and Performance
The Camera
To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the precautions described
below in addition to the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Aviii-x) when using or storing the
device.
B
Keep Dry
The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.
B
Do Not Drop
The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration.
B
Handle the Lens and All Moving Parts with Care
Do not apply force to the lens, lens cover, monitor, memory card slot or battery chamber. These
parts are easily damaged. Applying force to the lens cover could result in camera malfunction or
damage to the lens. 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.
B
Do Not Point the Lens at Strong Light Sources for Extended Periods
Technical Notes and Index
Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other strong light sources for extended periods when using or
storing the camera. Intense light may cause deterioration of the CCD image sensor, producing a
white blur effect in photographs.
B
Keep Away from Strong Magnetic Fields
Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong electromagnetic
radiation or magnetic fields. Strong static charge or the magnetic fields produced by equipment
such as radio transmitters could interfere with the monitor, damage data stored on the memory
card, or affect the product’s internal circuitry.
F2
B
Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature
Sudden changes in temperature, such as when entering or leaving a heated building on a cold day,
can cause condensation to form inside the device. To prevent condensation, place the device in a
carrying case or a plastic bag before exposing it to sudden changes in temperature.
B
Turn the Product Off Before Removing or Disconnecting the Power Source or
Memory Card
Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while images are being recorded or deleted.
Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to product
memory or internal circuitry.
B
Notes About the Monitor
F3
Technical Notes and Index
• 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.
• White or colored streaks may be visible when bright subjects are framed in the monitor. This
phenomenon, known as “smear,” occurs when extremely bright light strikes the image sensor; it is
characteristic of image sensors and does not indicate a malfunction. Smear may also take the form
of partial discoloration in the monitor during shooting. It does not appear in images recorded with
the camera except in the cases of movies and of images recorded with Multi-shot 16 selected for
Continuous. When shooting in these modes, we recommend that you avoid bright subjects such
as the sun, reflected sunlight, and electric lights.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight. Should the monitor begin to dim or flicker, contact your
Nikon-authorized service representative.
The Battery
Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Aviii-x) before use.
Technical Notes and Index
• Check the battery level before using the camera, and replace or charge the battery if necessary. Do
not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in reduced battery
performance. Whenever possible, carry a fully charged spare battery when taking images on
important occasions.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 40°C (104°F).
• Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F) before use.
• When charging the battery inserted into the COOLPIX S3400 using the Charging AC Adapter
EH-70P or a computer, the battery is not charged at battery temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or
above 45°C (113°F).
• Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool before charging.
Failure to observe these precautions could damage the battery, impair its performance, or prevent
it from charging normally.
• On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure that the battery is fully charged
before heading outside to take images in cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and
exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
• Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning. Should the battery
terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.
• If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and completely exhaust it
before removing it for storage. The battery should be stored in a cool 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.
• Always remove the battery from the camera or optional battery charger when it is not being used.
When inserted, minute amounts of current flow even when unused, and the battery may become
excessively drained and no longer function. Turning the camera on or off while the battery is
exhausted can result in reduced battery life.
• Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust it before returning it
to storage.
• After removing the battery from the camera or optional battery charger, put the battery in the
included battery case and store it in a cool place.
• 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 EN-EL19 battery.
F4
• 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.
Charging AC Adapter
Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Aviii-x) before use.
• The Charging AC Adapter EH-70P is for use only with compatible devices. Do not use with another
make or model of device.
• The EH-70P is compatible with AC 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz electrical outlets. When using in other
countries, use a plug adapter (available commercially) as necessary. For more information about
plug adapters, consult your travel agency.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other than Charging
AC Adapter EH-70P or USB-AC adapter. Failure to observe this precaution could result in
overheating or in damage to the camera.
Memory Cards
F5
Technical Notes and Index
• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (F22) for more
information about 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.
• 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 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 date to a computer, etc. If you want to format the 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.
• Do not format the memory card using a computer.
Cleaning and Storage
Cleaning
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Lens
Avoid touching the lens 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 them 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.
