Getting Started
How to Attach the Camera Strap
Attach the strap to the left and right side of the camera.
How to Attach the Lens Cap and Lens Hood
• When you are not shooting images, attach the lens cap to protect the lens.
• The lens hood cuts out light which adversely affects the image, and it also helps to
protect the camera. Do not use the lens hood when shooting with a flash or when
the AF-assist illuminator is necessary for shooting.
When not using the lens hood
15
Getting Started
How to Attach the Camera Strap
Inserting the Battery and Memory Card
Battery latch
Memory card slot
• With the battery’s positive and negative terminals oriented correctly, move the
orange battery latch (3), and fully insert the battery (4).
• Slide the memory card in until it clicks into place (5).
• Be careful not to insert the battery or memory card upside-down or backward, as
this could cause a malfunction.
• When the write-protect switch on the memory card is in the “lock” position, images
cannot be captured or deleted, and the card cannot be formatted.
B Formatting a Memory Card
The first time you insert a memory card that has been used in another device into this
camera, make sure to format it with this camera.
• Note that formatting a memory card permanently deletes all images and other
data on the memory card. Be sure to make copies of any images you wish to keep
before formatting the memory card.
• Insert the memory card into the camera, press the d button, and select Format card in
the setup menu (A113).
Removing the Battery or Memory Card
Turn the camera off and make sure that the power-on lamp and screen have turned
off, and then open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover.
• Move the battery latch to eject the battery.
• Gently push the memory card into the camera to partially eject the memory card.
• Be careful when handling the camera, battery, and memory card immediately after
using the camera, as they may be hot.

AC Adapter*
Electrical outlet
Power-on lamp
(charge lamp)
USB cable (included)
* A plug adapter is attached depending on the country or region of purchase. The
shape of the plug adapter varies with the country or region of purchase.
• Charging starts when the camera is connected to an electrical outlet while the
battery is inserted, as shown in the illustration. The power-on lamp (charge lamp)
slowly flashes while the battery is charging.
• When charging is complete, the power-on lamp turns off. Unplug the Charging AC
Adapter from the electrical outlet, and disconnect the USB cable.
Charging time is about 3 hours for a fully exhausted battery.
• The battery cannot be charged when the power-on lamp quickly flashes, possibly
due to one of the reasons described below.
- The ambient temperature is not suited to charging.
- The USB cable or Charging AC Adapter is not properly connected.
- The battery is damaged.

Charging the Battery
B
Notes About the USB Cable
• Do not use a USB cable other than the UC-E21. Using a USB cable other than the UC-E21
could result in overheating, fire or electric shock.
• Check the shape and direction of the plugs and do not insert or remove the plugs at an
angle.
B
Notes About Charging the Battery
• The camera can be operated while the battery is charging, but the charging time
increases. The power-on lamp (charge lamp) turns off while the camera is being operated.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other than
the EH-73P/EH-73PCH Charging AC Adapter, and do not use a commercially available
USB-AC adapter or a battery charger for a mobile phone. Failure to observe this precaution
could result in overheating or in damage to the camera.
Opening the Monitor
• You can adjust the direction and angle of the monitor. For normal shooting, fold
the monitor against the back of the camera, facing out (5).
• When you are not using or carrying the camera, fold the monitor against the
camera body with the screen facing in (1).
B
Notes About the Monitor
• The monitor’s adjustable range may be limited when a cable or accessories are attached
to the camera.
• When moving the monitor, do not apply excessive force and move slowly within the
monitor’s adjustable range so that the connection will not be damaged.

Using a Tripod
• We recommend using a tripod to stabilize the camera in the following situations:
- When shooting in dim lighting with the flash mode set to W (off )
- When the zoom is at a telephoto position
• When using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting, set Vibration
reduction to Off in the setup menu (A113) to prevent potential errors caused by
this function.
• After attaching the camera to a tripod, make sure that the camera does not fall over
when zooming the lens in or out. Extend one leg of the tripod toward the subject
and the other two legs toward you at an equal distance.
• The camera may move slightly when operated, even if it is attached to a tripod,
which may interfere with the autofocus. Wait a few seconds after operating the
camera, and then slowly press the shutter-release button.

Shutter Speed and F-number
• The control range of the shutter speed differs depending on the zoom position, f-number,
or ISO sensitivity setting.
• The f-number of this camera also changes depending on the zoom position.
• When zooming is performed after the exposure is set, exposure combinations or the
f-number may be changed.
• Large apertures (expressed by small f-numbers) let more light into the camera, and small
apertures (large f-numbers) let less light. The smallest f-number represents the largest
aperture, and the largest f-number represents the smallest aperture.

Shooting Features
j, k, l, and m Modes (Setting the Exposure for Shooting)
• The closer the lens is to the telephoto zoom position, the smaller the aperture range

The maximum shutter speed when the f-number is set to the largest value (smallest
aperture) at the maximum wide-angle zoom position. The closer the zoom position is to
telephoto, or the smaller the f-number (larger aperture) is, the slower the maximum
shutter speed becomes. For example, the maximum shutter speed is 1/2500 second
when the f-number is set to the largest value (smallest aperture) at the maximum
telephoto zoom position.
The exposure may vary when capturing the same subject multiple times with a shutter

Skin softening can also be applied to saved images in playback mode (A85).
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
The camera may not focus as expected in the following situations. In rare cases, the
subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or the focus indicator
is displayed in green:
• Subject is very dark
• Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the shooting conditions (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

Peaking
• The range of the contrast level considered to be in focus can be changed by adjusting the
peaking level. It is effective to set the level low for high contrast subjects, and high for low
contrast subjects.
• Peaking highlights high contrast areas of the image in white. Under some shooting
conditions, highlighting may not work properly or areas that are not in focus may be
highlighted.
• You can disable the peaking display using Peaking (A120) in the setup menu.

Using the Histogram
A histogram is a graph showing the distribution of tones in the image. Use as a guide when
using exposure compensation and shooting without the flash.
• The horizontal axis corresponds to pixel brightness, with dark tones to the left and bright
tones to the right. The vertical axis shows the number of pixels.
• Increasing exposure compensation value shifts tone distribution to the right, and
decreasing it shifts tone distribution to the left.

Maximum Movie Recording Time
Individual movie files cannot exceed 29 minutes in length, even when there is
sufficient free space on the memory card for longer recording. The maximum file size
for individual movie files is 4 GB. When recording a movie longer than approximately
six minutes at an image size/frame rate of 2160/30p (4K UHD) or longer than
approximately seven minutes at an image size/frame rate of 2160/25p (4K UHD),
multiple files are created when the file size of the recorded movie exceeds 4 GB, and
the files cannot be played back continuously (A150).
• The remaining recording time for a single movie is displayed on the shooting
screen.
• Recording may end before either limit is reached if camera temperature becomes
elevated.
• The actual remaining recording time may vary depending on the movie content,
subject movement, or type of memory card.
91
Movies
Basic Operations of Movie Recording and Movie Playback
• Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended for
recording movies (when recording 4K UHD movies at an image size/frame rate of
2160/30p or 2160/25p, cards rated UHS Speed Class 3 or faster are
recommended). When using a memory card with a lower Speed Class rating,
movie recording may stop unexpectedly.
B
Camera Temperature
• The camera may become hot when recording movies for an extended period of time or
when the camera is used in a hot area.
• If the inside of the camera becomes extremely hot when recording movies, the camera
will automatically stop recording. The amount of time remaining until the camera stops
recording (B10s) is displayed.
After the camera stops recording, it turns itself off.
Leave the camera off until the inside of the camera has cooled.

Notes About Saving Images or Movies
The indicator showing the number of exposures remaining or the indicator showing the
remaining recording time flashes while images or movies are being saved. Do not open
the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the battery 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.
B
Notes About Recorded Movies
• The sounds of control ring operation, zoom control operation, zoom, autofocus lens drive
movement, vibration reduction, and aperture operation when brightness changes may be
recorded.
• The following phenomena may be seen on the screen while recording movies. These
phenomena are saved in the recorded movies.
- Banding may occur in images under fluorescent, mercury-vapor, or sodium-vapor lighting.
- Subjects that move quickly from one side of the frame to the other, such as a moving
train or car, may appear skewed.
- The entire movie image may be skewed when the camera is panned.
- Lighting or other bright areas may leave residual images when the camera is moved.
• Depending on the distance to the subject or the amount of zoom applied, colored stripes
may appear on subjects with repeating patterns (fabrics, lattice windows, etc.) 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.
B
Notes About Autofocus for Movie Recording
Autofocus may not perform as expected (A65). Should this occur, focus using manual
focus (A67) or try the following:
1. Set Autofocus mode in the movie menu to Single AF (default setting) before starting
movie recording.
2. Frame another subject (positioned at the same distance from the camera as the intended
subject) in the center of the frame, press the b (e) button to start recording, and modify
the composition.

Capturing Still Images While Recording Movies
If the shutter-release button is pressed all the way
while recording a movie, one frame is saved as a still
image (JPEG image). Movie recording continues while
the still image is being saved.
• A still image can be captured when Q is displayed
on the screen. When f is displayed, a still image
cannot be captured.
• The size of the captured still image is determined by
the movie image size (A150).

Notes About Capturing Still Images During Movie Recording
• Still images cannot be saved during movie recording in the following situations:
- When movie recording is paused
- When the remaining movie recording time is less than five seconds
- When Movie options (A150) is set to HS movie
• When Image quality (A121) in the shooting menu is set to RAW or RAW + Fine, a still
image is captured as Fine. When Image quality is set to RAW + Normal, it is captured as
Normal.
• Up to 20 still images can be saved while recording a single movie when Movie options is
set to J 2160/30p or K 2160/25p. Still images are captured as Fine.
• It may take some time to save the images after shooting.
• The frames of a movie that were recorded when a still image was being captured may not
play back smoothly.
• The sounds of operating the shutter-release button when saving a still image may be
heard in the recorded movie.
• If the camera moves when the shutter-release button is pressed, the image may be
blurred.

Use this option to set the method of how the camera meters exposure.
Option
Description
Matrix
G
(default setting)
The camera uses a wide area of the screen for metering.
Recommended for typical shooting.
q Center-weighted
The camera meters the entire frame but assigns greatest
weight to the subject in the center of the frame. The classic
metering for portraits; it preserves background details while
letting lighting conditions in the center of the frame
determine exposure.*
r Spot
The camera meters the area shown by the circle in the center
of the frame. This can be used when the subject is much
lighter or darker than the background. Ensure that the subject
is within the area shown by the circle when shooting.*
* To set focus and exposure for off-center subjects, change AF area mode to manual and
set the focus area to the center of the frame, and then use focus lock (A66).

• The frame rate may become slower depending on the image quality, image size, memory
card type or shooting conditions (such as when saving RAW images).
• When using Continuous H: 120 fps or Continuous H: 60 fps, banding or variance in
brightness or hue may occur in images that were captured under lighting that flashes
quickly at high speeds, such as fluorescent, mercury-vapor, or sodium-vapor lighting.

Notes About Interval Timer Shooting
• To prevent the camera from turning off unexpectedly during shooting, use a sufficiently
charged battery.
• If the EH-5b/EH-5c AC Adapter and the EP-5C Power Connector (both available separately)
(A209) are used, this camera can be powered from an electrical outlet. Do not, under
any circumstances, use an AC adapter other than the EH-5b/EH-5c. Failure to observe this
precaution could result in overheating or damage to the camera.
• Do not rotate the mode dial to a different setting while performing interval timer
shooting. Doing so causes the camera to stop shooting.
• If the shutter speed is slow and saving an image takes time compared to the specified
interval, some of the shots during Interval timer shooting may be canceled.

• Normal (framing first) is recommended when you intend to significantly change the
direction of the camera while shooting, such as when panning. The camera automatically
detects the panning direction and only compensates for vibration caused by camera
shake.
• Images on the screen may be displayed blurry immediately after shooting.
• Vibration reduction may be unable to completely eliminate the effects of camera shake in
some situations.

Notice for Customers in the U.S.A. and Canada
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Innovation, Science and
Economic Development Canada (ISED)
Declaration of Conformity
This device complies with part 15 of FCC Rules and Innovation, Science and Economic
Development Canada's licence-exempt RSSs. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
FCC/ISED RF Exposure Statement
This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other
antenna or transmitter.
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that
these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless devices
emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being
used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue),
exposure of low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any
biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might
occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research. This
product has been tested and found to comply with FCC/ISED radiation exposure
limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency
(RF) Exposure Guidelines and RSS-102 of the ISED radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules.
Please refer to the SAR test report that was uploaded to FCC website.

Technical Notes
Notes About Wireless Communication Functions
Caring for the Product
Observe the precautions described below in addition to the warnings in “For Your
Safety” (Avi-ix) when using or storing the device.
The Camera
Do Not Apply Strong Impact to the Camera
The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration. In addition, do not
touch or apply force to the lens.
Keep Dry
The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.
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.
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. Doing so could result in loss of data or camera
malfunction.
Do Not Point the Lens at the Sun
Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other strong light sources when shooting or when leaving
the camera unattended without a lens cap. Strong light sources such as sunlight are
concentrated through the lens, which may cause deformation of the internal parts of the lens or
discoloration or burn-in on the image sensor. The camera may be damaged even when the lens
is pointed toward the sun for a few seconds, particularly when the lens is in a telephoto position.
The camera may not be able to perform exposure control when the internal parts of the lens
are deformed.
Unevenness may appear in images when discoloration or burn-in occurs on the image sensor.
It is recommended that you attach the lens cap when you are not using the camera.

Technical Notes
Caring for the Product
Turn the Product Off Before Removing or Disconnecting the
Power Source or Memory Card
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 the memory card or internal circuitry.
Notes About the Monitor
• Monitors (including 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.
• Do not apply pressure to the monitor, as this could cause damage or malfunction. 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.
The Battery
Precautions for Use
• Note that the battery may become hot after use.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 40°C (104°F) as
this could cause damage or malfunction.
• If you notice any abnormalities such as excessive heat, smoke, or an unusual smell coming
from the battery, immediately discontinue use and consult your retailer or Nikonauthorized service representative.
• After removing the battery from the camera or optional battery charger, put the battery in
a plastic bag, etc. in order to insulate it.
Charging the Battery
Check the battery level before using the camera and replace or charge the battery if
necessary.
• Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F)
before use.
• A high battery temperature may prevent the battery from charging properly or
completely, and may reduce battery performance. Note that the battery may become hot
after use; wait for the battery to cool before charging.
When charging the battery inserted into this camera using the Charging AC Adapter or a
computer, the battery is not charged at battery temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above
50°C (122°F).
• Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in reduced
battery performance.
• The battery temperature may increase during charging. However, this is not a
malfunction.
191
Technical Notes
Caring for the Product
Carrying Spare Batteries
Whenever possible, carry fully charged spare batteries when taking pictures on important
occasions.
Using the Battery When Cold
On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. If an exhausted battery is used at a
low temperature, the camera may not turn on. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and
exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
Battery Terminals
Dirt on the battery terminals may prevent the camera from functioning. Should the battery
terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.
Charging an Exhausted Battery
Turning the camera on or off while an exhausted battery is inserted in the camera may result
in reduced battery life. Charge the exhausted battery before use.
Storing the Battery
• Always remove the battery from the camera or optional battery charger when it is not
being used. Minute amounts of current are drawn from the battery while it is in the
camera, even when not in use. This may result in excessive battery drain and complete
loss of function.
• Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust it before
returning it to storage.
• Put the battery in a plastic bag, etc. in order to insulate it and store it in a cool place. The
battery should be stored in a dry location with an ambient temperature of 15°C to 25°C
(59°F to 77°F). Do not store the battery in hot or extremely cold locations.
Battery Life
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 battery.
Recycling Used Batteries
Recycle rechargeable batteries in accord with local regulations, being sure to first insulate
the terminals with tape.

Notes About the Built-in Flash
The built-in flash of this camera cannot be used when a Speedlight is attached.
Do not raise the built-in flash when a Speedlight is attached. Doing so may cause it to hit the
Speedlight, resulting in product damage.
B
Use Only Nikon Flash Accessories
Use only Nikon Speedlights. Flash units of other manufacturers (with voltages over 250 V
applied to the camera’s X sync contact, or causing short circuit at the accessory shoe
contact) could not only prevent normal operation, but damage the sync circuitry of the
camera or flash.

Notes About i-TTL Flash
• The monitor preflashes are fired to measure the reflecting light from a subject in order to
adjust the flash output of the Speedlight.
- Standard i-TTL flash: The flash output is adjusted to achieve proper exposure according
to the brightness of the main subject without consideration of the background light. This
setting is optimal for taking images with emphasis on the main subjects.
• When shooting using i-TTL flash, set the flash control mode of the Speedlight to i-TTL
before taking pictures.
C
Notes About Speedlights
• This camera does not support flash color information communication, Auto FP HighSpeed Sync, FV lock, AF-assist illumination for multi-point AF, or the wireless lighting
function when using Speedlights.
• When using the power zoom function with the SB-5000 or SB-700, the zoom head
position is automatically set depending on the focal length of the lens.
• When using a Speedlight, the image periphery may appear dark if the zoom is at the wideangle position. In such cases, use the wide panel of the SB-5000 or SB-700.
• When set to STBY (standby), the Speedlight turns on and off at the same time as the
camera. Confirm on the Speedlight that the flash-ready indicators are on.
• Refer to the documentation provided with your Speedlight for more information.

Battery life does not reflect the use of SnapBridge and may vary with the conditions of
use, including temperature, the interval between shots, and the length of time that
menus and images are displayed.
Individual movie files cannot exceed 29 minutes in length, even when there is sufficient
free space on the memory card for longer recording. The maximum file size for individual
movie files is 4 GB. When recording a movie longer than approximately six minutes at an
image size/frame rate of 2160/30p (4K UHD) or longer than approximately seven
minutes at an image size/frame rate of 2160/25p (4K UHD), multiple files are created
when the file size of the recorded movie exceeds 4 GB, and the files cannot be played
back continuously. Recording may end before this limit is reached if camera temperature
becomes elevated.
