60 fps, the built-in flash will not fire. At 15 fps, the maximum number of
shots that can be taken in a single burst is about 45, while at 30 and
60 fps the maximum is about 40.
While photographs are being recorded to the memory card, the memory card access lamp will light. Depending on shooting conditions and
memory card write speed, recording may take up to about a minute. If
the battery is exhausted before all photographs are recorded, the shutter release will be disabled and the remaining images transferred to the
memory card.
Continuous shooting is not available in best moment capture,
advanced movie, or Motion Snapshot mode, when live image control is
used in auto mode (0 28), or when On is selected for HDR in the shooting menu (0 71).

Remote control mode: From a distance of
5 m (16 ft) or less, aim the ML-L3 at the
infrared receiver on the front of the
camera (0 15) and press the ML-L3
shutter-release button. If 2 s delay is
selected for Remote control in the
setup menu (0 72), the self-timer lamp will light for about
two seconds before the shutter is released. If Quick response
is selected, the self-timer lamp will flash after the shutter has
been released.
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
mode is cancelled automatically if no operations are performed
for about ten minutes after the mode is selected in Step 2.

A Using a Flash
When using the built-in flash, press the N button 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.
t
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 65) is used when Quick response is
selected for Remote control in the setup menu (0 72), the shutter will
be released about 1 second after the red-eye reduction lamp lights. If 2
s delay is selected, there will be about a 2 second delay after the shutter-release button on the remote control is pressed; the red-eye reduction lamp will then light for about 1 second before the shutter is
released.

Fill flash: The flash fires with every shot. Use when the subject is
poorly lit or with back-lit subjects to “fill in” (illuminate) shadows.
Red-eye reduction: The red-eye reduction lamp lights before the
flash fires, reducing “red-eye” caused by light reflecting from
your subject's retinas.
Red-eye reduction + slow sync: Combines red-eye reduction with
slow shutter speeds to capture background details at night or
under low light. Use for portraits taken against a backdrop of
night scenery.
Fill flash + slow sync: Combines fill flash with slow shutter speeds
to capture details of poorly-lit backgrounds.
Rear curtain + slow sync: Combines rear-curtain sync (see below)
with slow shutter speeds to capture poorly-lit background
details.
Rear-curtain sync: While in other modes the flash fires as the shutter opens, in rear-curtain sync the flash fires just before the
shutter closes, creating streams of light that appear to follow
moving light sources.

A Using the Built-in Flash
The built-in flash can be used in auto and t, u, v, and w modes only;
note, however, that the flash can not be used with live image control
(0 28) and will not fire when On is selected for HDR in the shooting
menu (0 71), or in I mode (0 60) when a frame rate of 15, 30, or
60 fps is selected for Continuous in the shooting menu (0 70). 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. The following illustrations show the effect of vignetting caused by
shadows cast by the lens when the built-in flash is used.

A Aperture, Sensitivity, and Flash Range
Flash range varies with sensitivity (ISO equivalency) and aperture. With
the standard zoom lens at maximum aperture and ISO sensitivity set to
ISO 160 to 6400, the range is approximately 0.6 m–7.0 m (2 ft–23 ft)
when the lens is zoomed all the way out, 0.6 m–4.2 m (2 ft–13.8 ft) at
maximum zoom.

Power
• Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL21 (0 20–21): Additional
sources
EN-EL21 batteries are available from local retailers and Nikonauthorized service representatives.
• Battery Charger MH-28 (0 20): Recharge EN-EL21 batteries.
• Power Connector EP-5D, AC Adapter EH-5b: These accessories can be
used to power the camera for extended periods (EH-5a and
EH-5 AC adapters can also be used). An EP-5D power connector
is required to connect the camera to the EH-5b, EH-5a, or EH-5.
Flash
• SB-N5: The SB-N5 has a Guide Number of 8.5/27.9 (m/ft, ISO
units
100, 20 °C/68 °F; Guide Number at ISO 160 is 10.8/35.4). When
mounted on the Nikon 1 V2, it supports i-TTL and manual
flash control.
• SB-N7: The SB-N7 has a Guide Number of 18/59 (m/ft, ISO 100,
20 °C/68 °F; Guide Number at ISO 160 is 22.8/74.8). When mounted
on the Nikon 1 V2, it supports i-TTL and manual flash control.
A Guide Number
To calculate the range of the flash at full power, divide the Guide
Number by the aperture. For example, at ISO 100 the SB-N5 has a
Guide Number of 8.5 m or 27.9 ft (35 mm zoom head position);
its range at an aperture of f/5.6 is 8.5÷5.6 or about 1.5 meters (or
in feet, 27.9÷5.6=approximately 5 ft). For each twofold increase in
ISO sensitivity, multiply the Guide Number by the square root of
two (approximately 1.4).
Remote Wireless Remote Control ML-L3 (0 62): The ML-L3 uses a 3 V CR2025
controls battery.

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
Camera body
distilled water and dry thoroughly. Important: Dust or other
foreign matter inside the camera may cause damage not covered under warranty.
These elements are easily damaged. Remove dust and lint
with a blower. If using an aerosol blower, keep the can verLens,
tical to prevent the discharge of liquid. To remove fingerviewfinder
prints and other stains, apply a small amount of lens cleaner
to a soft cloth and clean with care.
Remove dust and lint with a blower. When removing fingerprints and other stains, wipe the surface lightly with a soft

Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
81
Caring for the Camera and Battery: Cautions
Do not drop: The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shocks or
vibration. Physical shocks may also cause the shutter to malfunction.
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.
Keep the lens mount covered: Be sure to attach the body cap if the camera is
without a lens.
n
Do not touch the image sensor: The image sensor is
easily damaged. Under no circumstances
should you exert pressure on the sensor, poke
it with cleaning tools, or subject it to powerful
air currents from a blower. These actions could
scratch or otherwise damage the sensor.
Image sensor
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.
82
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.
The lens is 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 from the
lens, 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 and viewfinder: These displays 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.
n
Images in the monitor may be difficult to see in a bright light.
Do not apply pressure to the displays, 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 or viewfinder 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.
83
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.
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.
n
84
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 °C to 25 °C (59 °F
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.
• 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-EL21 battery.
• Charge the battery before use. When taking photographs on important occasions, ready a spare EN-EL21 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.
A Image Sensor Cleaning
Each time it is turned on or off, the camera performs image sensor
cleaning to remove dust from the image sensor (note that operating
camera controls before cleaning is complete interrupts this process,
and that image sensor cleaning may be temporarily disabled if the
camera is turned on and off several times in succession). Dust not
removed by this method may appear in images recorded with the camera, in which case you should have the sensor cleaned by Nikon-authorized service personnel.
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.

Battery Life
The number of shots or movie footage that can be recorded 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-EL21 (1485 mAh)
batteries are given below.
• Still images: Approximately 310 shots
• Movies: Approximately 65 minutes of HD footage at 1080/60i
Measured according to CIPA standards at 23 ±3 °C (73.4 ±5.4 °F)
with the camera at default settings, a fully-charged battery, a
1 NIKKOR VR 10–30mm f/3.5–5.6 lens, and a 16 GB Toshiba
SD-E016GUX UHS-I SDHC card. Value for still images obtained
under the following test conditions: photographs taken at
intervals of 30 s with the built-in flash fired with every other
shot and the camera turned off and then on after every ten
shots. Value for movies obtained under the following test conditions: a series of 20 minute movies with a file size of up to
4 GB were recorded; recording was only interrupted when temperature warning was displayed.
The following can reduce battery life:
• Keeping the shutter-release button pressed halfway
• Repeated autofocus operations
• Taking NEF (RAW) photographs
• Slow shutter speeds
• Using a wireless mobile adapter or Eye-Fi cards
• Using vibration reduction mode with VR lenses
• Using zoom with power zoom lenses
n
To ensure that you get the most from rechargeable Nikon
EN-EL21 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.
