Notes About x (Scene Auto Selector) Mode

Depending upon shooting conditions, the camera may not select the desired scene mode. In this

case, select another shooting mode (

A33, 38, 40, 42).

When the digital zoom is in effect, the scene mode changes to d.

C

When Using a Tripod

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

- When shooting in dim lighting

- When shooting with the flash mode (

A46) set to W (off)

- When using the telephoto setting

When using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting, set Photo VR to Off in the setup

menu (

A73) 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 (wideangle).

When you turn the camera on, the zoom moves to the maximum wide-angle position.

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.

Notes About Digital Zoom

The zoom indicator turns blue when the digital zoom is activated, and it turns yellow when the zoom magnification is increased further.

Zoom indicator is blue: Image quality is not noticeably reduced by using the Dynamic Fine Zoom.

Zoom indicator is yellow: Image quality is noticeably reduced.

The indicator remains blue across a wider area when the image size is smaller.

The zoom indicator may not turn blue when using certain continuous shooting settings.

26

Step 4 Focus and Shoot

1

Press the shutter-release button halfway.

When the subject is in focus, the focus area glows green (multiple focus areas can glow green).

When you are using digital zoom, the camera focuses in the center of the frame and the focus area is not displayed. When the camera has focused, the focus indicator (

A7) glows

green.

If the focus area or focus indicator flashes, the camera is unable to focus. Modify the composition and try pressing the shutterrelease button halfway again.

2

Without lifting your finger, press the shutterrelease button the rest of the way down.

The Shutter-release Button

Press halfway

Press all the way

To set focus and exposure (shutter speed and aperture value), press the shutter-release button lightly until you feel a slight resistance. Focus and exposure remain locked while the shutterrelease button is pressed halfway.

Press the shutter-release button all the way to release the shutter and take an image.

Do not use force when pressing the shutter-release button, as this may result in camera shake and blurred images. Press the button gently.

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.

Available Flash Modes

U

Auto

The flash fires when necessary, such as in dim lighting.

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

V

Auto with red-eye reduction

Reduce “red-eye” in portraits caused by the flash.

W

Off

The flash does not fire.

We recommend using a tripod to stabilize the camera when shooting in dark surroundings.

X

Fill flash

The flash fires whenever an image is taken. Use to “fill-in” (illuminate) shadows and backlit subjects.

Y

C

The Flash Mode Setting

The setting may not be available with some shooting modes.

The setting applied in A (auto) mode is saved in the camera’s memory even after the camera is turned off.

C

Red-eye Reduction

If the camera detects red eye while saving an image, the affected area is processed to reduce red-eye before the image is saved.

Note the following when shooting:

More time than usual is required to save images.

Red-eye reduction may not produce the desired results in some situations.

In some rare cases, red-eye reduction may be applied unnecessarily to other areas of the image. In these cases, select another flash mode and take the image again.

Focusing

The focus area varies depending on the shooting mode.

Using Face Detection

When the camera is pointed at a human face in the shooting modes as shown below, the camera automatically detects the face and focuses on it.

e/b Portrait, h/c Night portrait, or d

Backlighting in x (scene auto selector) mode (

A32)

• Portrait or Night portrait in scene mode (A33)

Smart portrait mode (A40)

When AF area mode (A54) is set to Face priority in A

(auto) mode (

A42)

When the camera detects more than one face, the double border (focus area) is displayed around the face that is focused on, and single borders around the others.

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

When x (scene auto selector) mode is selected, the focus area changes depending on the scene.

In Portrait and Night portrait scene modes or in smart portrait mode, the camera focuses 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 (A40)

- The skin softening level can be adjusted.

e Portrait, h Night portrait, or d Backlighting in x (scene auto selector) mode

(

A32)

• Portrait or Night portrait in scene mode (A33)

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

retouch (

A65) 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.

59

60

Using Target Finding AF

When AF area mode (

A54) 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

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

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).

61

62

Focus Lock

Focus lock shooting is recommended when the camera does not activate the focus area that contains the desired subject.

1

Set AF area mode to Center in A (auto) mode (

A54).

2

Position the subject in the center of the frame and press the shutterrelease button halfway.

The camera focuses on the subject and the focus area glows green.

Focus and exposure are locked.

3

Without lifting your finger, recompose the picture.

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

4

Press the shutter-release button the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Individual movie files cannot exceed 2 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 (

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.

B

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.

B

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.

B

Notes About Autofocus for Movie Recording

Autofocus may not perform as expected (

A61). 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 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

Keep Dry

The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.

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

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.

F

2

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

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

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.

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.

F

4

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

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.
