Optical Zoom NIKKOR 40X
Capture the action at sporting events, shoot distant themes in stunning detail in urban landscapes, or take an inconceivable picture of the moon and night sky, thanks to the NIKKOR 40x optical zoom lens, expandable to Dynamic Fine Zoom 80x1. Reliable NIKKOR optical elements ensure superior performance, so you can enjoy a powerful lens that covers the entire range from a wide angle of 22.5 mm to super-telephoto viewing angles of 900 mm (the equivalent focal length at 35 mm) in a compact camera.
High Performance Vibration Depreciation (VR)
The stability of the camera is crucial to ensuring clean shots. High-performance VR essentially removes the blur caused by camera shake, even at a full 40x zoom, ensuring crisp shots. The effect of lens-shifted VR mode is equivalent to a 3.0-stop shutter speed increase (based on the CIPA standard at the maximum telephoto position), while the easy grip also makes it easy to keep the camera stable.
The SnapBridge app maintains a solid low-energy connection between your camera and smartphone or tablet, so you can easily control everything about your photos. Now you can sync photos to your smart device while taking photos and in the moment share nikon-quality photos. You can also control basic camera functions from your phone, keep it in sync and up to date, and do much more.
Customize your shooting experience by setting up your favorite features, such as Auto, Scene Mode, or Sports, to the function selector at the top of the camera to ensure easy access. Then the operation is simple and intuitive, making shooting extremely easy.
Extremely Smooth VIDEO FULL HD
Avoid blurry videos forever as you can now shoot Full HD (1080p/60i) video with high-performance hybrid vibration damping (VR) of four-axis, combining vr lens shift and electronic VR to prevent camera shake and effectively reduce blur, even in full 40x optical zoom. Impress your friends with particularly sharp video from family celebrations, concerts, architecture or wildlife, which have been taken in sharp detail regardless of the distance of your subject and save snapshots when recording video.

Take comfortable photos and videos from multiple angles, with flexibility for each type of theme. This high-resolution display consumes a little power, so you have enough battery life to keep shooting when you need it most. Provides crisp color reproduction and excellent visibility even when viewed from a diagonal direction. The reflective coating and acrylic frame to prevent fingerprints ensure that the view is always clean, while the 5-level brightness adjustment function always provides top visibility when displaying in days of bright sunlight.

The "GOAL FINDING AF" function is as effective with themes in the center of the frame as it is with those outside the center and is also effective for photographing small subjects, such as flowers and food.
