Notice for Customers in the U.S.A. and Canada

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry of Canada (IC)

Declaration of Conformity

This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules and Industry Canada licence-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of this device.

FCC/IC 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.

Notes About Digital Zoom

Depending on the shooting mode or the current settings, digital zoom may not be available

(

E79).

When digital zoom is in effect, the camera focuses in the center of the frame.

Focusing

The focus area varies depending on the shooting mode.

Using Target Finding AF

When AF area mode (

A58) in A (auto) 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.

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

Focus areas

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 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 at the edge of the monitor

- When the main subject is composed of a repeating pattern

Using Face Detection

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

x (scene auto selector) mode (A32)

• Portrait or Night portrait scene mode (A34)

Smart portrait mode (A42)

When AF area mode (A58) in A (auto) mode (A44) 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 button is pressed halfway when no faces are detected:

In x (scene auto selector) mode, the focus area changes depending on the scene.

In Portrait and Night portrait scene modes or in smart portrait mode, the camera focuses on the area in the center of the frame.

In A (auto) mode, 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

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 three faces).

Smart portrait mode (A42)

- The skin softening level can be adjusted.

x (scene auto selector) mode (A32)

• Portrait or Night portrait scene mode (A34)

Editing functions such as Skin softening can be applied to saved images by using Glamour

retouch (

A70) even after shooting.

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.

65

66

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 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

72

3

Press the b (e movie-record) button again to end recording.

B

Maximum Movie Length

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 (

F22). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when memory cards with a lower Speed

Class rating 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, 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.

73

74

B

Camera Temperature

The camera may become warm 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.

B

Notes About Autofocus

Autofocus may not perform as expected (

A66). Should this occur, 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 movie-record) button to start recording, and then modify the composition.

Caring for the Product

The Camera

To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the precautions described

below in addition to the warnings in “For Your Safety” (

Aviii-x) 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.

F

2

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

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” (

Aviii-x) 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 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).

F

3

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.

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 the included battery case 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.

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.

F

4

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

Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (F22) 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.

Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.

Lens

Monitor

Body

Avoid touching glass parts 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.

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.

Use a blower to remove dust, dirt, or sand, then wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth.

After using the camera at the beach or other sandy or dusty environment, wipe off any sand, dust, or salt with a dry cloth lightly dampened with fresh water and dry thoroughly. Note that foreign matter inside the camera could cause damage not

covered by the warranty.

Storage

Turn the camera off when not in use. Be sure that the power-on lamp is off before putting the camera away. Remove the battery if the camera will not be used for an extended period. Do not store the camera with naphtha or camphor moth balls, or in any of the following locations:

Next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic fields, such as televisions or radios

Exposed to temperatures below –10°C (14°F) or above 50°C (122°F)

Places that are poorly ventilated or subject to humidity of over 60%

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 the camera away again.

For storing the battery, follow the precautions in “The Battery” (

F3) in “Caring for the
