Frame the picture.

Point the camera at the object (subject) you want to take a picture of.

C

When Using a Tripod

We recommend using a tripod to stabilize the camera in the following situations:

- When shooting in dark surroundings with the flash mode (

A 57) set to W (off)

- When zooming in on the subject

Set Vibration reduction to Off in the setup menu (

A 94) when using a tripod to stabilize the

camera during shooting.

Step 3 Frame a Picture

Using the Zoom

Use the zoom control to activate optical zoom.

To zoom in on the subject, rotate the zoom control

to g (telephoto).

To zoom out for a wider shot, rotate the zoom

control to f (wide-angle). When you turn the camera on, the zoom moves to the maximum wide-angle position.

Rotating the zoom control all the way in either

direction will adjust the zoom quickly, while rotating the control partially will adjust the zoom slowly

(except when recording movies).

A zoom indicator is displayed at the top of the

monitor when the zoom control is rotated.

Zoom out Zoom in

Optical zoom

Digital zoom

Digital Zoom

When the camera is zoomed in to the maximum optical zoom position, rotating and holding the zoom control at g triggers digital zoom.

Digital zoom can magnify the subject up to about 2× beyond the maximum magnification of the optical zoom.

Maximum optical zoom Digital zoom enabled

When you are using digital zoom, the camera focuses on the subject in the

center of the frame and the focus area is not displayed.

C

Digital Zoom and Interpolation

Unlike optical zoom, digital zoom uses a digital imaging process known as interpolation to magnify

images, resulting in slight deterioration of picture quality according to the image mode (

A 71) and

digital zoom magnification.

Interpolation is applied at zoom positions beyond V when taking still pictures.

When zoom is increased beyond the V position, interpolation is initiated and the zoom indicator turns yellow to indicate that interpolation is being applied.

The position of V moves to the right as image size decreases, allowing for confirmation of the zoom positions at which shooting without interpolation is possible at the current image mode setting.

Step 4 Focus and Shoot

1

Press the shutter-release button halfway, i.e., press the button slightly until you feel resistance.

When you press the shutter-release button halfway, the camera sets the focus and exposure (shutter speed and aperture value). Focus and exposure remain locked while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.

When the camera detects the main subject, it focuses on that subject. When the subject is in focus, the focus areas (up to 12 areas) glow green.

The camera has nine focus areas, and if it does not detect the main subject, it automatically selects the focus areas containing the subject closest to the camera. When the subject is in focus, the focus areas that are in focus (up to nine areas) glow green.

Shutter speed Aperture value

Shutter speed Aperture value

When you are using digital zoom, the camera focuses on the subject in the center of the frame and the focus area is not displayed. When the camera has focused, the

focus indicator (

A 6) glows green.

While the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the focus area or focus indicator may blink red. This indicates that the camera is unable to focus. Modify the composition and press the shutter-release button halfway again.

If the subject is dimly lit when you press the shutter-release button halfway, the AFassist illuminator (

A 95) may light and the flash (A 2, 58) may pop-up.

2

Press the shutter-release button all the way, i.e., press the button the rest of the way down.

The shutter is released and the image will be saved to the memory card or internal memory.

If you press the shutter-release button with too much force, the camera may shake, causing images to be blurred. Press the button gently.

Step 4 Focus and Shoot

B

Notes About Saving Images

While images are being saved, the number of exposures remaining (

A 20) will blink. Do not

open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover while images are being saved. Removing the battery or memory card in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to the camera or card.

It may take some time for the image to be saved depending on the current settings or the

shooting conditions (

F12).

B

Autofocus

The camera may not focus 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 is 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 (

A 78).

C

When the Subject Is Close to the Camera

If the camera cannot focus, try shooting with macro mode (

A 64) or the Close-up scene mode

(

A 47).

C

Flash

If the subject is dimly lit, the flash will pop up automatically when you press the shutter-release button halfway when the flash mode is set to

U (auto; default setting). The flash will fire when you press the

shutter-release button all the way down. See “Using the Flash (Flash

Mode)” (

A 56) for more information.

To lower the flash, turn the camera off. See “Raising and Lowering the

Flash” (

A 58) for more information.

C

To Make Sure You Do Not Miss a Shot

If you are concerned that you might miss a shot, press the shutter-release button all the way without first pressing it halfway.

Notes About Continuous Shooting Mode

It may take some time to save the images after shooting. The amount of time it takes to finish saving the captured images depends on the number of images, image mode, the write speed of the memory card, etc.

When ISO sensitivity increases, noise may appear in captured images.

The speed of continuous shooting may decrease depending on the image mode, type of memory card used, and shooting conditions.

When continuous is set to Pre-shooting cache, Continuous H: 120 fps, Continuous H: 60 fps, or Multi-shot 16, banding or variance in brightness or hue may occur in images that were captured under lighting that flickers at high speeds, such as fluorescent, mercury-vapor, or sodium-vapor lighting.

Description

While the shutter-release button is held all the way down, up to five pictures are taken at a rate of about 6 frames per second (fps) (when Image mode is set to P

4608×3456).

Pre-shooting cache makes it easy to capture perfect moments, by saving images from before the shutterrelease button was pressed all the way. Pre-shooting cache shooting begins when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, and continues when the shutterrelease button is pressed all the way.

Shooting ends when the shutter-release button is released or when the maximum number of frames has been shot.

Each time the shutter-release button is pressed all the way,

60 frames are captured at a speed of about 1/125 s or faster.

Each time the shutter-release button is pressed all the way,

60 frames are captured at a speed of about 1/60 s or faster.

The “best shot selector” is recommended when shooting with the flash off or the camera zoomed in, or in other situations in which inadvertent motion can result in blurred images. The camera captures a series of up to ten images while the shutter-release button is held all the way down, and the sharpest image in the series is automatically selected and saved.

Each time the shutter-release button is pressed, the camera takes 16 shots at a rate of about

30 fps and arranges them in a single image.

The face closest to the center of the frame

When using Face priority, 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 using scene auto selector, the focus area changes depending on which

scene the camera selects.

If no faces are detected when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway

when using Portrait or Night portrait, the camera will focus on the subject in the center of the frame.

B

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. Additionally, 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 upon a variety of factors, including the direction in which the faces are looking.

In some rare cases, such as those described in “Autofocus” (

A 29), the subject may not be in

focus even though the double border turns green. Should this occur, change AF area mode to

Manual or Center in A (auto) mode, and try focus lock shooting (

A 78) by focusing on another

subject that is the same distance from the camera.

B

Viewing Images That Were Captured Using Face Detection

During playback, the camera automatically rotates images according to the orientation of the faces that were detected at the time of shooting, except when viewing an image captured in a series.

When zooming in on an image displayed full-frame by rotating the zoom control to g (i), the image will be enlarged so that the face that was detected at the time of shooting is displayed in

the center of the monitor (

A 31), except when viewing an image captured in a series.

Using Skin Softening

When the shutter is released when using one of the following shooting modes, the camera detects one or more human faces (up to three), and processes the image to soften facial skin tones before saving the image.

• Scene auto selector (

A 40), Portrait (A 44), or Night portrait (A 45)

scene mode is selected.

Skin softening can also be applied to saved images (

A 80).

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. If the desired results are

Focus Lock

You can use focus lock to focus on off-center subjects when center is selected for

AF area mode.

The following procedure describes how to use focus lock when using A (auto)

mode with AF area mode (

A 37) set to Center.

1

Position the subject in the center of the frame.

2

Press the shutter-release button halfway.

Confirm that the focus area glows green.

Focus and exposure are locked.

3

Continue holding down the shutter-release button halfway and recompose the picture.

Be sure to maintain the same distance between the camera and the subject.

Notes About Easy Panorama Shooting

The range of the image seen in the saved image will be narrower than that seen in the monitor at the time of shooting.

If the camera is moved too quickly, if the camera is shaken too much, or if the subject has little variance in appearance (such as a wall or in darkness), an error will occur.

If shooting is stopped before the camera reaches the half-way point in the panorama range, a panorama image is not saved.

If more than half of the panorama range is captured but shooting ends before reaching the edge of the range, the range not captured is recorded and displayed in gray.

White Balance (Adjusting Hue)

Enter A (auto) mode or continuous shooting mode M d button M A or C tab M

White balance

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, select 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.

Option a Auto

(default setting) b Preset manual c Daylight d Incandescent e Fluorescent f Cloudy g Flash

Description

White balance is automatically adjusted to suit lighting conditions.

Best choice in most situations.

Useful when shooting under unusual lighting. See “Using Preset

Manual” for more information (

E32).

White balance adjusted for direct sunlight.

Use under incandescent lighting.

Use under fluorescent lighting.

Use when taking pictures under overcast skies.

Preset manual is used 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 shot under a lamp with a red shade look as though they had been shot under white light).

Use the procedure below to measure the white balance value under the lighting used during shooting.

1

Place a white or gray reference object under the lighting that will be used during shooting.

Description

Uses a wide area of the screen for metering. This metering mode provides the appropriate exposure for a variety of shooting conditions. Recommended in most situations.

The camera meters the entire frame but assigns greatest weight to the subject in the center of the frame. Classic meter for portraits; preserves background details while letting lighting conditions in the center of the frame determine exposure. Can

be used with focus lock (

pressed all the way (

E36).

Frame rate: up to 15 fps

Number of frames:

Up to 20 frames (including up to 5 frames captured in the pre-shooting cache)

Shooting ends when the shutter-release button is released or when the maximum number of frames has been shot.

Image mode is fixed at M.

n Continuous H: 120 fps j Continuous H: 60 fps j BSS (best shot selector)

Each time the shutter-release button is pressed all the way,

60 frames are captured at a speed of about 1/125 s or faster.

Image mode is fixed at O.

Each time the shutter-release button is pressed all the way,

60 frames are captured at a speed of about 1/60 s or faster.

Image mode is fixed at M (image size: 1280 × 960 pixels).

The “best shot selector” is recommended when shooting with the flash off or the camera zoomed in, or in other situations in which inadvertent motion can result in blurred images. The camera captures a series of up to 10 images while the shutter-release button is held all the way down, and the sharpest image in the series is automatically selected and saved.

Adjust zoom position, flash mode, creative slider, and menu settings prior to registering the subject. If any camera setting is changed after the subject has been registered, subject registration will be canceled.

The camera may not be able to register or track the subject, or a different subject may be tracked, depending on shooting conditions such as if the subject is moving fast, if there is camera shake, and if there are similar looking subjects in the frame. The camera’s ability to accurately track the registered subject is also dependent upon the size and brightness of the subject.

When using autofocus and shooting subjects that are difficult to focus on (

Notes About Connecting the Camera to a Printer

The battery cannot be charged with connection to a printer, even if the printer complies with the

PictBridge standard.

When Auto is selected for Charge by computer, it may be impossible to print images with direct connection of the camera to some printers. If the PictBridge startup screen is not displayed in the monitor after the camera is connected to a printer and turned on, turn the camera off and disconnect the USB cable. Set Charge by computer to Off and reconnect the camera to the printer.

B

Notes About Charging with Connection to a Computer

The battery cannot be charged, nor can data be transferred, when the camera is connected to a

computer before the camera’s display language and date and time have been set (

A 22). If the

camera’s clock battery (

A 23) has been exhausted, the date and time must be reset before the

battery can be charged or images can be transferred with connection to a computer. In this case,

use the Charging AC Adapter EH-69P (

A 16) to charge the battery and then set the camera’s date

and time.

If the camera is turned off, charging will also stop.

If the computer enters sleep mode while charging, charging will stop and the camera may be turned off.

When disconnecting the camera from the computer, turn the camera off and then disconnect the

USB cable.

It may take longer to charge the battery with connection to a computer than with charging using the Charging AC Adapter EH-69P. 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 upon computer specifications, settings, and power supply and allocation, it may be impossible to charge the battery using a computer connection while it is inserted into the camera.

Technical Notes and Index

Caring for the Product

The Camera

To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the following precautions when using or storing the device.

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

Keep Dry

The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.

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

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 saved on the memory card, or affect the product’s internal circuitry.

B

Do Not Point the Lens at Strong Light Sources for Extended Periods

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 image sensor, producing a white blur effect in photographs.

B

Turn the Product off Before Removing or Disconnecting the Power Source

Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while images are being saved or deleted.

Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to product memory or internal circuitry.

Notes About the Monitor

The monitor may contain a few pixels that are always lit or that do not light. This is a characteristic common to all TFT LCD displays, and does not indicate a malfunction. Images saved using the product will not be affected.

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.

Caring for the Product

The Battery

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 pictures 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 camera using the Charging AC adapter EH-69P or a computer, the charge capacity may decrease at ambient temperatures 45 °C to 60 °C (113 °F to 140 °F).

The battery is not charged at ambient temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F) or above 60 °C (140 °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. If an exhausted battery is used at a low temperature, the camera not turn on. Be sure that the battery is fully charged before heading outside to take pictures 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 run it flat before removing it for storage. The battery should be stored in a cool location with an ambient temperature of 15 to

25 °C (59 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 are drawn from the battery even when not in use. This may result in excessive draining of the battery and complete loss of 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, replace the included terminal cover 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-EL12 battery.

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.

Cleaning and Storage

Cleaning

Lens

Monitor

Body

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 them and working toward the edges. If this fails, clean the lens using a cloth lightly dampened with commercial lens cleaner.

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.

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.

Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.

Storage

Turn the camera off when not in use. Be sure that the power-on lamp is off before putting the camera away. Remove the battery if the camera will not be used for an extended period. Do not store the camera with naphtha or camphor moth balls, or in any of the following locations:

Next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic fields, such as

televisions or radios

Exposed to temperatures below –10 °C (14 °F) or above 50 °C (122 °F)

Places that are poorly ventilated or subject to humidity of over 60%

To prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a month.
