Disposing of Data Storage Devices
Introduction
Please note that deleting images or formatting data storage devices such as memory cards or
built-in camera memory does not completely erase the original image data. Deleted files can
sometimes be recovered from discarded storage devices using commercially available software,
potentially resulting in the malicious use of personal image data. Ensuring the privacy of such data is
the user’s responsibility.
Before discarding a data storage device or transferring ownership to another person, erase all data
using commercial deletion software, or format the device and then completely refill it with images
containing no private information (for example, pictures of empty sky). Be sure to also replace any
pictures selected for the Select an image option in the Welcome screen setting (A 24, E60) in
the setup menu. Care should be taken to avoid injury or damage to property when physically
destroying data storage devices.

Focusing
The focus area varies depending on the shooting mode.
Using Face Detection
In the following shooting modes, the camera uses face
detection to automatically focus on human faces.
• Portrait or Night portrait in G (easy auto) mode (E3)
• Portrait or Night portrait in scene mode (E4)
• Smart portrait mode (E8)
5m 0s
1400
Reference Section
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 no faces are detected when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the camera
focuses 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.
• 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
E20
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 three faces).
• Smart portrait mode (E8)
• Portrait or Night portrait in G (easy auto) mode (E3)
• Portrait or Night portrait in scene mode (E4)
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
E21
Reference Section
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 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 (E22).
Focus Lock
Focus lock shooting is recommended when the camera does not activate the focus area that
contains the desired subject.
1
2
Select A (auto) mode (E10).
Position the subject in the center of
the frame and press the shutterrelease button halfway.

Notes About Saving Images and Recording Movies
The indicator showing the number of exposures remaining or the indicator showing the maximum
movie length flashes while images are being saved or while a movie is being recorded. Do not open
the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the batteries or memory card while
an indicator is flashing. Doing this could result in loss of data, or in damage to the camera or the
memory card.
Notes About Movie Recording
• Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended when recording
movies (F19). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when memory cards with a lower Speed
Class rating are used.
• There may be some degradation in image quality when digital zoom is used.
• The sounds of zoom control operation, zoom, autofocus lens drive movement, and aperture
operation when brightness changes may be recorded.
• Smear (F3) visible in the monitor with movie recording is recorded with movies. Avoiding bright
objects such as the sun, reflections of the sun, and electric lights is recommended.
• Depending on the distance to the subject or the amount of zoom applied, subjects with repeating
patterns (fabrics, lattice windows, etc.) may have colored stripes (interference patterns, moire, etc.)
in them 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.

Caring for the Product
The Camera
To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the precautions described
below in addition to the warnings in “For Your Safety” (A viii - xi) 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
Technical Notes and Index
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.
F2
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 batteries 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.
B
Notes About the Monitor
B
Notes About Smear
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 saved with the
camera except in the cases of movies and of images saved 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.
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.
• 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.
Batteries
Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (A viii-xi) before use.
B
Notes About Using Batteries
• Used batteries may overheat. Handle with caution.
• Do not use batteries beyond their recommended expiration date.
• Do not turn the camera on and off repeatedly if discharged batteries are inserted in the camera.
B
Spare Batteries
We recommend carrying spare batteries depending on where you are shooting. It may be difficult to
purchase batteries in certain areas.
B
Charging Batteries
Technical Notes and Index
If using optional rechargeable batteries, charge the batteries before taking pictures. Batteries are not
charged at the time of purchase.
Be sure to read and follow the warnings noted in the operating instructions included with the
battery charger.
B
Charging Rechargeable Batteries
• Do not mix batteries with different amounts of charge remaining, or batteries of a different make
or model.
• When using EN-MH2 batteries with this camera, charge two batteries at a time using Battery
Charger MH-72. When using Battery Charger MH-73, charge two or four batteries at a time. Use
only Battery Charger MH-72 or MH-73 to charge EN-MH2 batteries.
• When using Battery Charger MH-72 or MH-73, only charge EN-MH2 batteries.

Notes About EN-MH1 Rechargeable Batteries and Battery Charger MH-70/71
You can also use EN-MH1 Ni-MH rechargeable batteries with this camera.
Use only Battery Charger MH-70 or MH-71 to charge EN-MH1 batteries.
When using Battery Charger MH-70 or MH-71, only charge EN-MH1 batteries.
Set the Battery type setting (A 24, E74) in the setup menu to COOLPIX (Ni-MH).
F4
B
Notes About Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries
• If you repeatedly charge rechargeable Ni-MH batteries while they still have some charge
remaining, the message Battery exhausted. may be displayed prematurely when using the
batteries. This is due to the “memory effect,” in which the amount of charge the batteries can hold
decreases temporarily. Use the batteries until there is no charge remaining and they will return to
their normal behavior.
• Rechargeable Ni-MH batteries discharge even when not being used. We recommend charging the
batteries just before using them.
B
Cold Environment Usage
Battery performance decreases in cold environments. When using the camera in cold environments,
try not to let the camera and batteries become too cold. The camera may not function if you use
discharged batteries in cold environments. Keep spare batteries warm and alternate between two
sets of batteries. Batteries that cannot be used because they have become too cold can often be
used again when they have been warmed up.
Battery Terminals
Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning. Remove dirt from the
terminals using a dry cloth.
B
Remaining Battery Charge
If you insert discharged batteries into the camera, the camera may indicate that the batteries have
adequate charge remaining. This is a characteristic of batteries.
B
Recycling
Used batteries are a valuable resource. Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local
regulations. Cover the battery terminals with plastic tape when recycling.

Memory Cards
Technical Notes and Index
• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (F19) for recommended
memory cards.
• Observe the precautions noted in the documentation included with your memory card.
• Do not affix labels or stickers to the memory card.
• 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. If there is data saved on the memory card that you wish to keep, copy that data to
a computer before formatting.
• 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 on the memory card that you do not want to
delete, select No and press the k button. Copy that data to a computer before formatting. To
format the memory card, select Yes.
• Observe the following precautions while formatting the memory card, saving and deleting
images, and copying images to a computer, otherwise data or the memory card itself may be
damaged.
- Do not open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the memory card or
batteries.
- Do not turn off the camera.
- Do not disconnect the AC adapter.
F6
