containing no private information (for example, images of empty sky). Be sure to also replace any
images selected for the Select an image option in the Welcome screen setting (A73). Care
should be taken to avoid injury or damage to property when physically destroying data storage
devices.

- When the shot is framed so that the main subject is at the edge of the monitor
- When the main subject is composed of a repeating pattern
60
Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus
Shooting Features
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 (A62).

movies (F20). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when memory cards with a lower Speed
Class ratings 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, movie vibration
reduction, and aperture operation when brightness changes may be recorded.
• Smear (F3) visible in the monitor with movie recording will be recorded with movies. Avoiding
bright objects such as the sun, reflections of the sun, and electric lights when recording movies 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.

Notes About Vibration Reduction During Movie Recording
• When Movie VR in the movie menu (A70) is set to On (hybrid), the angle of view (i.e., the area
visible in the frame) becomes narrower during movie recording.
• When using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting, set Movie VR to Off to prevent
potential errors caused by this function.
Notes About Camera Temperature
• The camera may become hot when shooting 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.

or mouth.
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 CCD image sensor, producing a
white blur effect in photographs.
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

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
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 product
memory or internal circuitry.
B
Notes About the Monitor
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.
• 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.
• 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” (Aviii-x) before use.
Technical Notes and Index
• 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 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 45°C
(113°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. 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.
• 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 flow even when unused, and the battery may become
excessively drained and no longer 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. in order 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-EL19 battery.
F4
• 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” (Aviii-x) before use.
• The Charging AC Adapter EH-70P is for use only with compatible devices. Do not use with another
make or model of device.
• The EH-70P is compatible with AC 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz electrical outlets. When using in other
countries, use a plug adapter (commercially available) as necessary. For more information about
plug adapters, consult your travel agency.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other than Charging
AC Adapter EH-70P or USB-AC adapter. Failure to observe this precaution could result in
overheating or in damage to the camera.
Memory Cards
F5
Technical Notes and Index
• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (F20) for recommended
memory cards.
• Be sure to follow the precautions described in the documentation included with the memory card.
• Do not put labels or stickers on memory cards.
• 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. Be sure to make copies of any images you wish to keep before formatting the
memory card.
• 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 that you do not want to delete, select No.
Copy the necessary data to a computer, etc. If you want to format the card, select Yes. The
confirmation dialog will be displayed. To start formatting, press the k button.
• Do not perform the following during formatting, while data is being written to or deleted from the
memory card, or during data transfer to a computer. Failure to observe this precaution could result
in the loss of data or in damage to the camera or memory card:
- Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover to remove/insert the battery or memory card.
- Turn off the camera.
- Disconnect the AC adapter.
• Do not format the memory card using a computer.
Cleaning and Storage
Cleaning
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Lens
Avoid touching the lens with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with a blower
(typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one end that is pumped to
produce a stream of air out the other end). To remove fingerprints or other stains
that cannot be removed with a blower, wipe the lens with a soft cloth, using a spiral
motion that starts at the center of them and working toward the edges. If this fails,
clean the lens using a cloth lightly dampened with commercial lens cleaner.
Monitor
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other stains, clean the
monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to apply pressure.
Body

Unexpected results when
flash set to V (auto with
red-eye reduction).
When taking images with V (auto with red-eye
reduction) or fill flash with slow sync and red-eye
reduction in Night portrait scene mode, the InCamera Red Eye Fix processing may be applied to
areas not affected by red-eye in rare cases. Use any
scene mode other than Night portrait, and change
the flash mode to any setting other than V (auto
with red-eye reduction) and try taking an image again.

Problem
Skin tones are not softened.
Saving images takes time.
It may take more time to save images in the
following situations:
• When the noise reduction function is in
operation
• When the flash mode is set to V (auto with
red-eye reduction)
• When the skin softening function is applied
while shooting
Colored circles or light
streaks appear in the monitor
or images.
A
Cause/Solution
• In some shooting conditions, facial skin tones
may not be softened.
• For images containing four or more faces, try
using the Skin softening effect in Glamour
retouch in the playback menu.
When shooting with backlighting or when a very
strong light source (such as sunlight) is in the
frame, colored circles or light streaks (ghosting)
may occur. Change the position of the light source,
or frame the image so that the light source does
not enter the frame, and try again.
