Nikon’s dependable Vibration Reduction (VR) system
Even in low light, Nikon’s exclusive VR system helps prevent blur caused by
camera movement. The VR system is built into the lens, not in the camera body,
which means each VR lens can work on its own optimized algorithms, and you get
a steady view while composing. The result: accuracy, efficiency and remarkably
sharp pictures.
• Nikon's exclusive Vibration Reduction technology is available only with Nikkor lenses bearing the VR symbol.
PictBridge lets you print pictures directly from your camera. It’s fun, fast and simple:
just connect to any compatible
printer using the supported
USB.
Nikon’s PictureProject comes with every
