When Using a Tripod

We recommend using a tripod to stabilize the camera in the following situations.

- When shooting in dim lighting with the flash lowered, or in a shooting mode in which the flash is disabled

- When using the telephoto setting

When using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting, set Vibration

reduction (

A91) to Off in the setup menu to prevent potential errors caused by this function.

Using the Zoom

When you move the zoom control, the zoom lens position changes.

To zoom in closer to the subject: Move toward g (telephoto)

To zoom out and view a larger area: Move toward f (wide-angle)

Rotating the zoom control all the way in either direction adjusts the zoom quickly.

Zoom out Zoom in

A zoom indicator is displayed at the top of the monitor when the zoom control is moved.

Digital zoom, which allows you to further magnify the subject up to approximately 4× the maximum optical zoom ratio, can be activated by moving and holding the zoom control toward g when the camera is zoomed in to the maximum optical zoom position.

Exposure

The procedure for shooting images at the desired brightness (exposure) by adjusting the shutter speed or aperture value is called “determine exposure.”

The sense of dynamism and amount of background defocus in images to be shot vary depending on the combinations of shutter speed and aperture value even if the exposure is the same.

Adjusting the Shutter Speed

In k mode, the range is from a maximum of 1/4000 to 8 seconds.

In m mode, the range is from a maximum of 1/4000 to 15 seconds.

See “The Control Range of the Shutter Speed” (

A52) for more information.

Faster 1/1000 s Slower 1/30 s

Adjusting the Aperture Value

In l and m modes, the range is from f/3 to 8.3 (wide-angle position) and from f/5.9 to 8.3 (telephoto zoom position).

Larger aperture (Small f-number) f/3

Smaller aperture (Large f-number) f/8.3

C

Aperture Value (F-number) and Zoom

Large apertures (expressed by small f­numbers) let more light into the camera, and small apertures (large f-numbers) let less light.

The aperture value of the zoom lens of this camera changes depending on the zoom position. When zooming to the wide-angle position and telephoto zoom position, the aperture values are f/3 and f/5.9, respectively.

49

50

j (Programmed auto)

Use for automatic control of the exposure by the camera.

Different combinations of shutter speed and aperture value can be selected without changing the exposure by rotating the command dial (“flexible program”). While

flexible program is in effect, a flexible program mark (A) is displayed next to the mode indicator ( j) in the upper left of the monitor.

To cancel flexible program, rotate the command dial until the flexible program mark (A) is no longer displayed. Selecting another shooting mode, or turning off the camera, also cancels flexible program.

k (Shutter-priority auto)

Use to shoot fast-moving subjects at a fast shutter speed, or use to emphasize the movements of a moving subject at a slow shutter speed.

The shutter speed can be adjusted by rotating the command dial.

1/250 F5.6

l (Aperture-priority auto)

Use to bring subjects including both the foreground and background into focus or blur the subject’s background intentionally.

Autofocus

The camera automatically adjusts the focus according to the distance to the subject. Use when the distance from the subject to the lens is 50 cm (1 ft 8 in.) or more, or 2.0 m (6 ft 7 in.) or more at the maximum telephoto zoom position.

The focus mode icon on the shooting screen is displayed only immediately after the setting is made.

Macro close-up

Set when taking close-up images.

When the zoom ratio is set to a position where F and the zoom indicator glow green, the camera can focus on subjects as close as approximately 10 cm (4 in.) from the lens. When the zoom is at the position where G is displayed, the camera can focus on subjects as close as approximately 1 cm

(0.4 in.) from the lens.

Infinity

Use when shooting distant scenes through window glass or when shooting landscapes.

The camera automatically adjusts the focus near infinity.

The camera may not be able to focus on nearby objects.

The flash mode is set to W (off).

Manual focus

The focus can be adjusted on any subject at a distance from approximately

1 cm (0.4 in.) to infinity from the lens (

A63). The closest distance at which the camera can focus varies depending on the zoom position.

Notes About Shooting with the Flash

The flash may be unable to light the entire subject at distances of less than 50 cm

(1 ft 8 in.).

C

Focus Mode Setting

The setting may not be available with some shooting modes.

For shooting modes j, k, l and m, the setting is saved in the camera’s memory even after the camera is turned off.

Taking Images with Manual Focus

Available when the shooting mode is j, k, l, m or M, special effects mode, or

Sports or Bird-watching scene mode.

E (Manual Focus)

The digits displayed for the gauge on the right of the monitor in step 2 serve as a guideline for the distance to a subject that is in focus when the gauge is near the center.

The actual range at which the subject can be in focus varies depending on the aperture value and zoom position. To see whether the subject is in focus, check the image after shooting.

C

Notes About 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. Depending on the 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 in the setup menu (

A92).

Adjusting Brightness (Exposure Compensation)

You can adjust overall image brightness.

1

Press the multi selector

K (o).

2

Select a compensation value and press the k button.

To brighten the image, set a positive (+) value.

To darken the image, set a negative (–) value.

The compensation value is applied, even without pressing the k button.

Exposure compensation

Histogram Guide

C

Exposure Compensation Value

The value applied in j, k or l mode is saved in the camera’s memory even after the camera is turned off.

When the shooting mode is Fireworks show scene mode (

A41) or m (manual)

(

A50), exposure compensation cannot be used.

When the exposure compensation is set while using a flash, the compensation is applied to both the background exposure and to the flash output.

C

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.

Focusing

The focus area varies depending on the shooting mode.

Using the Target Finding AF

In A (auto) mode, or when AF area mode (

A69) in j, k, l, m or M mode is set to Target finding AF, the camera focuses in the manner described below when you press the shutter-release button halfway.

The camera detects the main subject and focuses on it. When the subject is in focus, the focus area glows green.

If a human face is detected, the camera automatically sets focus priority on it.

1/250 F5.6

Focus areas

If no main subject is detected, the camera automatically selects one or more of the 9 focus areas containing the subject closest to the camera. When the subject is in focus, the focus areas that are in focus glow green.

1/250 F5.6

Focus areas

B

Notes About Target Finding AF

Depending on shooting conditions, the subject that the camera determines to be the main subject may vary.

The main subject may not be detected when using certain White balance or

Picture Control settings.

The camera may not detect the main subject appropriately in the following situations:

- When the subject is very dark or bright

- When the main subject lacks clearly defined colors

- When the shot is framed so that the main subject is on the edge of the monitor

- When the main subject is composed of a repeating pattern

Using Face Detection

In the following settings, the camera uses face detection to automatically focus on human faces.

When AF area mode (

A69) is set to Face

priority

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 the shutter-release button is pressed halfway when no faces are detected:

When Scene auto selector is selected, the focus area changes depending on the scene.

In s (night portrait) and Portrait, the camera focuses on the area in the center of the frame.

When a (smile timer) is selected, the camera focuses on the subject in the center of the frame.

When AF area mode is set to Face priority, the camera selects the focus area containing the subject closest to the camera.

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

C

Viewing Images Taken Using Face Detection

During playback, the camera automatically rotates images according to the orientation of the faces that were detected at the time of shooting (except for images taken using Continuous (

A69) or Exposure bracketing (A69)).

77

78

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 3 faces).

s (night portrait), Scene auto selector or Portrait scene mode (A36)

Skin softening can also be applied to saved images (

A82).

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 some rare cases, the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or 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

(

A79).

The camera can also focus using manual focus (

A62, 63).

Focus Lock

Use focus lock to capture creative compositions even when the focus area is set to the center of the frame.

1

Position the subject in the center of the frame and press the shutter-release button halfway.

Confirm that the focus area glows green.

Focus and exposure are locked.

2

Without lifting your finger, recompose the picture.

Make sure to maintain the same distance between the camera and the subject.

Individual movie files cannot exceed 4 GB in size or 29 minutes in length, even when there is sufficient free space on the memory card for longer recording.

The maximum movie length 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 movie length may vary depending on the movie content, subject movement, or type of memory card.

B

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 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 Movie Recording

Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended when recording movies (

A21). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when a memory card with a lower Speed Class rating is used.

When using the camera's internal memory, saving movies may take some time.

Depending on the file size of a movie, it may not be possible to save the movie in the internal memory or copy it from a memory card to the internal memory.

The sounds of 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 in the monitor 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, 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.

B

Notes About Using Zoom During Movie Recording

The zoom indicator is not displayed during movie recording.

There may be some degradation in image quality when digital zoom is used. If you zoom in on the subject while recording a movie, the zoom motion temporarily stops at the position where optical zoom is changed to digital zoom.

B

Camera Temperature

The camera may become warm 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.

Focusing and Exposure Locking During Movie Recording

The focus can be adjusted during movie recording in the following manner in accordance with the Autofocus mode (

A89) setting of the movie menu.

- A Single AF (default setting): The focus is locked when movie recording starts. To perform the autofocus function during movie recording, press the multi selector

J.

- B Full-time AF: The focus is adjusted repeatedly even during movie recording.

When the multi selector

K is pressed during movie recording, the exposure is locked. To unlock, press

K again.

When the focus mode (

A61) is E (manual focus), adjust the focus manually. The focus can be adjusted while recording movies by rotating the multi selector counterclockwise to focus on far subjects or clockwise to focus on near subjects.

Autofocus may not perform as expected (

A78). Should this occur, try E

(manual focus) (

A62, 63) or set Autofocus mode in the movie menu to

A Single AF (default setting) and then use focus lock (

A79) to record.

87

Saving 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.

The maximum number of still images that can be saved during a movie recording (10 images) and Q are displayed at the top left of the monitor. When f is displayed, a still image cannot be saved.

The image size of the still images to be saved is set to i (1920 × 1080 pixels).

B

Notes About Saving Still Images During Movie Recording

Still images cannot be saved during movie recording in the following situations.

- When movie recording is paused

- When a movie is recorded to the internal memory

- When the remaining movie length is less than 10 seconds

- When Movie options (

A89) is set to n 1080/60i, q 1080/50i, g

480/30p, s 480/25p or HS movie

Frames of a movie that were recorded when a still image was being taken may not be played back in a seamless manner.

Caring for the Products

The Camera

To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the precautions described below in addition to the warnings in “For Your Safety” (

Avii-ix) 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

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.

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 or the 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 product memory or internal circuitry.

B

Notes About the Monitor

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.

The Battery

Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (

Avii-ix) before use.

Check the battery level before using the camera and replace or charge the battery if necessary. Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in reduced battery performance. Whenever possible, carry a fully charged spare battery when taking images on important occasions.

Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above

40°C (104°F).

Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C

(41°F to 95°F) before use.

When the battery temperature is between 0°C and 10°C (32°F to 50°F) or

45°C to 60°C (113°F to 140°F), the chargeable capacity may decrease.

The battery is not charged at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 60°C (140°F).

Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool before charging. Failure to observe these precautions could damage the battery, impair its performance, or prevent it from charging normally.

On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. If an exhausted battery is used at a low temperature, the camera will not turn on. Be sure that the battery is fully charged before heading outside to take images in cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.

Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning.

Should the battery terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.

F

3

F

4

If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and completely exhaust it before removing it for storage. The battery should be stored in a cool 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.

Always remove the battery from the camera or optional battery charger when it is not being used. When inserted, minute amounts of current are drawn from the battery even when not in use. This may result in excessive draining of the battery and complete loss of function. Turning the camera on or off while the battery is exhausted can result in reduced battery life.

Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust it before returning it to storage.

After removing the battery from the camera or optional battery charger, put the battery in a plastic bag, etc. to insulate it and store it in a cool place.

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 EN-EL5 battery.

Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a valuable resource. Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local regulations.

Charging AC Adapter

Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (

Avii-ix) before use.

The Charging AC Adapter EH-70P/EH-70PCH is for use only with compatible devices. Do not use with another make or model of device.

Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other than Charging AC Adapter EH-70P/EH-70PCH or USB-AC adapter.

Failure to observe this precaution could result in overheating or in damage to the camera.

The EH-70P/EH-70PCH is compatible with AC 100 V-240 V, 50/60 Hz electrical outlets. When using in other countries, use a plug adapter

(available commercially) as necessary. For more information about plug adapters, consult your travel agency.

Memory Cards

Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards”

(

A21) 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 battery.

- Do not turn off the camera.

- Do not disconnect the AC adapter.
