Flicker, banding, or distortion may be visible
in the displays and in the final movie under
fluorescent, mercury vapor, or sodium lamps
or if the camera is panned horizontally or an
object moves at high speed through frame
(flicker and banding can be reduced in HD
movies by choosing a Flicker reduction
option that matches the frequency of the
local AC power supply; 0 153). Bright light
sources may leave after-images when the
camera is panned. Jagged edges, color fringing, moiré, and bright spots may also appear.
When recording movies, avoid pointing the
camera at the sun or other strong light
sources. Failure to observe this precaution
could result in damage to the camera’s internal circuitry.

desired option and press J.
4 Frame the photograph and shoot.
Self-timer mode: Press the shutterrelease button halfway to focus, and
then press the button the rest of the
way down. The self-timer lamp will
start to blink and a beep will begin to
sound. Two seconds before the photo
is taken, the lamp will stop blinking
and the beeping will become more
rapid.
t
Remote control mode: Aim the ML-L3 at
the infrared receiver on the camera
(0 2) and press the ML-L3 shutterrelease button (stand at a distance of
5 m/16 ft or less). In delayed remote
mode, the self-timer lamp will light for
about two seconds before the shutter is released. In quickresponse remote mode, the self-timer lamp will flash after the
shutter has been released.
Downloaded From camera-usermanual.com Nikon Manuals
54
Note that the timer may not start or a photograph may not be
taken if the camera is unable to focus or in other situations in
which the shutter can not be released. Turning the camera off
cancels self-timer and remote control modes. Remote control
modes are cancelled automatically if no operations are performed
for about five minutes after the mode is selected in Step 3.
A Movie Mode
In self-timer mode, start and stop the timer by pressing the movierecord button instead of the shutter-release button. In remote control
mode, the ML-L3 shutter-release button functions as the movie-record
button.
A Using the Built-in Flash
Slide the flash pop-up control to raise the flash before shooting. Shooting will be interrupted if the flash is raised while the self-timer or
delayed-remote timer is counting down.
In remote control mode, the flash starts charging while the camera is
waiting for the signal from the remote. The camera will only respond to
the shutter-release button on the remote control when the flash is
charged. If red-eye reduction (0 58) is used in quick-response remote
mode, the shutter will be released about one second after the red-eye
reduction lamp lights. In delayed remote mode, there will be about a
two second delay after the shutter-release button on the remote control is pressed; the red-eye reduction lamp will then light for about one
second before the shutter is released.

A Tripod Mounting Spacer
Use an optional TA-N100 tripod mounting spacer to prevent larger
lenses coming into contact with the tripod head when the camera is
mounted on a tripod (0 159).

A Lowering the Built-in Flash
To save power when the flash is not in use,
press it gently downward until the latch
clicks into place. Do not use force. Failure to
observe this precaution could result in product malfunction.
A Using the Built-in Flash
The built-in flash can be used in still image mode only. If the flash is
fired multiple times in quick succession, the flash and shutter may be
temporarily disabled to protect the flash. Shooting can be resumed
after a brief pause.
Objects close to the camera may be overexposed in photographs taken
with the flash at high ISO sensitivities.
To avoid vignetting, remove lens hoods and shoot at ranges of at least
0.6 m (2 ft). Some lenses may cause vignetting at greater distances or
obstruct the red-eye reduction lamp, interfering with red-eye reduction; for more information, visit a Nikon website. The following illustrations show the effect of vignetting caused by shadows cast by the lens
when the built-in flash is used.

A Histograms (0 64)
Camera histograms are intended only as a guide and may differ from
those in imaging applications. Sample histograms are shown below:
• If brightness varies evenly across the
image, the distribution of tones
will be relatively even.
• If the image is dark, tone distribution will be shifted to the left.
• If the image is bright, tone distribution will be shifted to the right.
Exposure compensation shifts the distribution of tones to the right
when raised, to the left when lowered. Histograms can give you a
rough idea of overall exposure when bright ambient lighting makes it
difficult to see the display in the monitor.

distance, producing natural results in most situations.
The camera meters the entire frame but assigns the greatest
Center- weight to the center area. This is the classic meter for porM
weighted traits and is recommended if you are using filters with an
exposure factor (filter factor) over 1×.

A Color Temperature
The perceived color of a light source varies with the viewer and other
conditions. Color temperature is an objective measure of the color of a
light source, defined with reference to the temperature to which an
object would have to be heated to radiate light in the same wavelengths. While light sources with a color temperature in the neighborhood of 5,000–5,500 K appear white, light sources with a lower color
temperature, such as incandescent light bulbs, appear slightly yellow
or red. Light sources with a higher color temperature appear tinged
with blue. The camera white balance options are adapted to the following color temperatures:
• Sodium-vapor lamps: 2,700 K
• J (incandescent)/
Warm-white fluorescent: 3,000 K
• White fluorescent: 3,700 K
• I Cool-white fluorescent: 4,200 K

ISO Sensitivity
“ISO sensitivity” is the digital equivalent of film speed. The
higher the sensitivity, the less light needed to make an exposure,
allowing faster shutter speeds or smaller apertures, but the more
likely the image is to be affected by “noise” in the form of randomly-spaced bright pixels, fog, or lines. Noise is particularly
likely at a setting of Hi 1 (equivalent to ISO 6400).

Color Space
The color space determines the gamut of colors available for
color reproduction. Choose sRGB for photos that will be used
“as is,” with no further modification, Adobe RGB for photos that
will be extensively processed or retouched after leaving the
camera. Note that regardless of the option selected, sRGB is
used for movies and Motion Snapshots and for photos recorded
in movie mode.
A Color Space
Color spaces define the correspondence between colors and the
numeric values by which they are represented in a digital image file.
The sRGB color space is widely used, while Adobe RGB is typically used
in publishing and commercial printing. sRGB is recommended when
taking photographs that will be printed without modification or
viewed in applications that do not support color management, or
when taking photographs that will be printed with ExifPrint, the direct
printing option on some household printers, or kiosk printing or other
commercial print services. Adobe RGB photographs can also be
printed using these options, but colors will not be as vivid.
JPEG photographs taken in the Adobe RGB color space are DCF compliant; applications and printers that support DCF will select the correct
color space automatically. If the application or device does not support
DCF, select the appropriate color space manually. For more information, see the documentation provided with the application or device.
A Nikon Software
ViewNX 2 (supplied) and Capture NX 2 (available separately) automatically select the correct color space when opening photographs created
with this camera.

Active D-Lighting
Active D-Lighting preserves details in highlights and shadows
for natural contrast. Use with high contrast scenes such as a
brightly lit outdoor view framed in a door or window or a subjects in the shade on a sunny day. It is most effective when used
with Matrix metering (0 117).
Active D-Lighting: Off

Noise (randomly-spaced bright pixels, fog, or lines) may appear in photographs taken with Active D-Lighting. Uneven shading may be visible
with some subjects.
A “Active D-Lighting” Versus “D-Lighting”

Long Exposure NR
Photographs taken at slow shutter speeds are automatically processed to reduce “noise” (bright spots, randomly-spaced bright
pixels, or fog), slightly increasing recording times. Selecting On
increases the amount of noise reduction performed at shutter
speeds slower than 1 s and increases the time required to record
images by roughly 1.5 to 2 times. During processing, a warning
will be displayed and pictures can not be taken (if the camera is
turned off before processing is complete, the picture will be
saved but noise reduction will not be performed). In continuous
release mode, frame rates will slow and while photographs are
being processed, the capacity of the memory buffer will drop.
High ISO Noise Reduction
Select On to reduce “noise” (randomly-spaced bright pixels,
lines, or fog). If Off is selected, noise reduction will only be performed at high ISO sensitivities; the amount of noise reduction is
less than that performed when On is selected.

Interval Timer Shooting
Take photographs automatically at preset intervals.
D Before Shooting
Before proceeding, check that the clock is set correctly (0 18, 154) and
then take a test shot at current settings and view the results in the monitor.
Use of a tripod is recommended. To ensure that shooting is not interrupted, be sure the battery is fully charged or use an optional EH-5b AC
adapter and EP-5C power connector.
1 Select Interval/Number of shots.
Highlight Interval/Number of shots and press 2 to display
interval timer options.
2 Adjust settings.
Press 4 or 2 to highlight hours, minutes, or seconds and press 1 or 3 to
choose an interval longer than the
slowest anticipated shutter speed,
then highlight the number of intervals
and press 1 or 3 to change. Press J
to return to the interval timer shooting menu when settings
are complete.
3 Start shooting.
Highlight Start and press J. Shooting will start after about 3 s, and continue at the selected interval until all
the shots have been taken (one shot is
taken at each interval). Note that the
pause following the recording of each
shot varies with shutter speed and the time needed to record
the image, with the result that photographs may not be
recorded at the selected interval. Photos may also not be
recorded if the shutter can not be released (for example,
because the camera is unable to focus).

A Interval Timer Photography
A warning will be displayed if the camera is unable to start interval
timer photography at current settings (for example, when “Bulb” is
selected for shutter speed). While interval timer photography is in
progress, settings can not be adjusted and the camera will not turn off
automatically (0 17).
A Interrupting Interval Timer Photography
Interval timer shooting ends and interval timer settings are reset when
the camera is turned off, the battery is exhausted, the memory card is
full, the mode dial is rotated to a new setting, or the G or K button
is pressed.
Vibration Reduction
This option is available with lenses that supports vibration
reduction (VR). The options available vary with the type of lens:
Normal/Active/Off for lenses that support active vibration
reduction and On/Off for other VR lenses. Choose Active, Normal, or On to reduce the effects of vibration; choose Active
when shooting from a moving vehicle or while walking or for
other forms of strong camera shake, Normal for the relatively
mild camera shake that occurs while standing still.
A Vibration Reduction
When the camera is panned, vibration reduction applies only to motion
that is not part of the pan (if the camera is panned horizontally, for
example, vibration reduction will be applied only to vertical shake),
making it much easier to pan the camera smoothly in a wide arc. The
composition may appear to change after the shutter is released, but
this does not indicate a malfunction.

A Getting Good Results with Autofocus
Autofocus does not perform well under the conditions listed below.
The shutter release may be disabled if the camera is unable to focus
under these conditions, or the focus area may be displayed in green
and the camera may sound a beep, allowing the shutter to be released
even when the subject is not in focus. In these cases, focus manually
(0 140) or use focus lock (0 143) to focus on another subject at the
same distance, and then recompose the photograph.
There is little or no contrast between
the subject and the background.
Example: The
subject is the
same color as
the background.
The subject contains objects at different distances from the camera.
Example: The
subject is
inside a cage.
The subject is dominated by regular
geometric patterns.
Example: Blinds
or a row of
windows in a
skyscraper.
The subject contains areas of sharply
contrasting brightness.
Examples: The
subject is half
in the shade; a
night scene
with point illumination.
Background objects appear larger
than the subject.
Example: A
building is in
the frame
behind the
subject.
The subject contains many fine details
or is made up of objects that are small
or lack variation in brightness.
Example: A field
of flowers.

Storage and Cleaning
Storage
If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove
the battery and store it in a cool, dry area with the terminal cover
in place. To prevent mold or mildew, store the camera in a dry,
well-ventilated area. Do not store your camera with naphtha or
camphor moth balls or in locations that:
• are poorly ventilated or subject to humidities of over 60%
• are next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic
fields, such as televisions or radios
• are exposed to temperatures above 50 °C (122 °F) or below –10 °C
(14 °F)
Cleaning
Use a blower to remove dust and lint, then wipe gently with
a soft, dry cloth. After using the camera at the beach or seaside, wipe off sand or salt with a cloth lightly dampened in

Caring for the Camera and Battery: Cautions
Do not drop: The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shocks or
vibration.
Keep dry: This product is not waterproof, and may malfunction if
immersed in water or exposed to high levels of humidity. Rusting of the
internal mechanism can cause irreparable damage.
Avoid sudden changes in temperature: Sudden changes in temperature, such
as those that occur when entering or leaving a heated building on a cold
day, can cause condensation inside the device. To prevent condensation,
place the device in a carrying case or plastic bag before exposing it to
sudden changes in temperature.
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 charges or the magnetic fields produced
by equipment such as radio transmitters could interfere with the displays, damage data stored on the memory card, or affect the product’s
internal circuitry.
Do not leave the lens pointed at the sun: Do not leave the lens pointed at the
sun or other strong light source for an extended period. Intense light
may cause the image sensor to deteriorate or produce a white blur effect
in photographs.
Keep the lens mount covered: Be sure to attach the body cap if the camera is
without a lens.
Do not touch the dust shield: The dust shield covering the image sensor is
easily damaged. Under no circumstances should you exert pressure on
the shield or poke it with cleaning tools. These actions could scratch or
otherwise damage the shield.
n
Turn the product off before removing or disconnecting the power source: Do not
unplug the product or 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. To prevent an accidental interruption of
power, avoid carrying the product from one location to another while
the AC adapter is connected.

Cleaning: When cleaning the camera body, use a blower to gently remove
dust and lint, then wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth. After using the camera at the beach or seaside, wipe off any sand or salt using a cloth lightly
dampened in pure water and then dry the camera thoroughly.
Lenses are easily damaged. Dust and lint should be gently removed with
a blower. When using an aerosol blower, keep the can vertical to prevent
discharge of liquid. To remove fingerprints and other stains, apply a
small amount of lens cleaner to a soft cloth and wipe the lens carefully.
Storage: To prevent mold or mildew, store the camera in a dry, well-ventilated area. If you are using an AC adapter, unplug the adapter to prevent
fire. If the product will not be used for an extended period, remove the
battery to prevent leakage and store the camera in a plastic bag containing a desiccant. Do not, however, store the camera case in a plastic bag,
as this may cause the material to deteriorate. Note that desiccant gradually loses its capacity to absorb moisture and should be replaced at regular intervals.
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 it away.
Store the battery in a cool, dry place. Replace the terminal cover before
putting the battery away.
Notes on the monitor: This display may contain a few pixels that are always
lit or that do not light. This is common to all TFT LCD displays and does
not indicate a malfunction. Images recorded with the product are unaffected.
Images in the monitor may be difficult to see in a bright light.
Do not apply pressure to the display, as this could cause damage or malfunction. Dust or lint on the displays can be removed with a blower.
Stains can be removed by wiping lightly with a soft cloth or chamois
leather. Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury
from broken glass and to prevent liquid crystal from the display touching the skin or entering the eyes and mouth.

Moiré: Moiré is an interference pattern created by the interaction of an
image containing a regular, repeating grid, such as the pattern of weave
in cloth or windows in a building, with the camera image sensor grid. In
some cases, it may appear in the form of lines. If you notice moiré in your
photographs, try changing the distance to the subject, zooming in and
out, or changing the angle between the subject and the camera.
Lines: Noise in the form of lines may in rare cases appear in pictures of
extremely bright or backlit subjects.
Batteries: Batteries may leak or explode if improperly handled. Observe
the following precautions when handling batteries:
• Use only batteries approved for use in this equipment.
• Do not expose the battery to flame or excessive heat.
• Keep the battery terminals clean.
• Turn the product off before replacing the battery.
• Remove the battery from the camera or charger when not in use and
replace the terminal cover. These devices draw minute amounts of
charge even when off and could draw the battery down to the point
that it will no longer function. If the battery will not be used for some
time, insert it in the camera and run it flat before removing it and storing it in a location with an ambient temperature of 15 to 25 °C (59 to
77 °F; avoid hot or extremely cold locations). Repeat this process at
least once every six months.
• Turning the camera on and off repeatedly when the battery is fully discharged will shorten battery life. Batteries that have been fully discharged must be charged before use.
• The internal temperature of the battery may rise while the battery is in
use. Attempting to charge the battery while the internal temperature is
elevated will impair battery performance, and the battery may not
charge or charge only partially. Wait for the battery to cool before
charging.
• Continuing to charge the battery after it is fully charged can impair battery performance.
n
Downloaded From camera-usermanual.com Nikon Manuals

• A marked drop in the time a fully charged battery retains its charge
when used at room temperature indicates that it requires replacement.
Purchase a new EN-EL20 battery.
• Charge the battery before use. When taking photographs on important occasions, ready a spare EN-EL20 battery and keep it fully charged.
Depending on your location, it may be difficult to purchase replacement batteries on short notice. Note that on cold days, the capacity of
batteries tends to decrease. Be sure the battery is fully charged before
taking photographs outside in cold weather. Keep a spare battery in a
warm place and exchange the two as necessary. Once warmed, a cold
battery may recover some of its charge.
• Used batteries are a valuable resource; recycle in accord with local regulations.
D Servicing the Camera and Accessories
The camera is a precision device and requires regular servicing. Nikon
recommends that the camera be inspected by the original retailer or
Nikon-authorized service representative once every one to two years,
and that it be serviced once every three to five years (note that fees
apply to these services). Frequent inspection and servicing are particularly recommended if the camera is used professionally. Any accessories regularly used with the camera, such as lenses or optional flash
units, should be included when the camera is inspected or serviced.

A Lens Care
• When using an optional lens hood, do not pick up or hold the lens or
camera using only the hood.
• Keep the CPU contacts clean.
• Use a blower to remove dust and lint from the lens surfaces. To
remove smudges and fingerprints, apply a small amount of ethanol or
lens cleaner to a soft, clean cotton cloth or lens-cleaning tissue and
clean from the center outwards using a circular motion, taking care
not to leave smears or touch the glass with your fingers.
• Never use organic solvents such as paint thinner or benzene to clean
the lens.
• A lens hood or NC filter can be used to protect the front lens element.
• Attach the front and rear caps when the lens is not in use.
• If the lens will not be used for an extended period, store it in a cool,
dry location to prevent mold and rust. Do not store in direct sunlight
or with naphtha or camphor moth balls.
• Keep the lens dry. Rusting of the internal mechanism can cause irreparable damage.
• Leaving the lens in extremely hot locations could damage or warp
parts made from reinforced plastic.
A Supplied Accessories
• 40.5 mm snap-on Front Lens Cap LC-N40.5
• Rear Lens Cap LF-N1000
A Optional Accessories
• 40.5 mm screw-on filters
• Semi-soft Case CL-N101
• Bayonet Hood HB-N101 (attaches as shown below).

❚❚ Supported Standards
• DCF Version 2.0: The Design Rule for Camera File Systems (DCF) is
a standard widely used in the digital camera industry to ensure
compatibility among different makes of camera.
• DPOF: Digital Print Order Format (DPOF) is an industry-wide
standard that allows pictures to be printed from print orders
stored on the memory card.
• Exif version 2.3: The camera supports Exif (Exchangeable Image
File Format for Digital Still Cameras) version 2.3, a standard in
which information stored with photographs is used for optimal
color reproduction when the images are output on Exif-compliant printers.
• PictBridge: A standard developed through cooperation with the
digital camera and printer industries, allowing photographs to
be output directly to a printer without first transferring them to
a computer.
• HDMI: High-Definition Multimedia Interface is a standard for
multimedia interfaces used in consumer electronics and AV
devices capable of transmitting audiovisual data and control
signals to HDMI-compliant devices via a single cable connection.

Battery Life
The number of shots that can be taken with fully-charged batteries varies with the condition of the battery, temperature, the
interval between shots, and the length of time menus are displayed. Sample figures for EN-EL20 (1020 mAh) batteries are
given below.
• Still images: Approximately 230
• Movies: Approximately 70 minutes of HD footage at 1080/60i
Values for still images measured at 25 °C/77 °F with a fullycharged EN-EL20 battery, a 1 NIKKOR VR 10–30mm f/3.5–5.6
lens, and a 16 GB Toshiba R95 W80MB/s UHS-I SDHC card
according to the CIPA standard under the following test conditions: NORMAL-quality photographs taken at intervals of 30 s
with the flash fired with every other shot and the camera
turned off and then on after every ten shots.
The following can reduce battery life:
• Keeping the shutter-release button pressed halfway
• Repeated autofocus operations
• Taking NEF (RAW) photographs
• Slow shutter speeds
• Using vibration reduction mode with VR lenses
To ensure that you get the most from rechargeable Nikon
EN-EL20 batteries:
• Keep the battery contacts clean. Soiled contacts can reduce
battery performance.
• Use batteries immediately after charging. Batteries will lose
their charge if left unused.
