Beautiful photos in challenging light

Backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and wide ISO range

A backside-illuminated image sensor gathers maximum light, so you can take sharper photos in dark situations. That performance is enhanced by a wide ISO range—from ISO 100 to 6400—and its high-performance NIKKOR lens. Capture high-quality images with the optimal balance between high resolution and less noise at high sensitivities, even in dimly lit environments. In addition, the VR (Vibration Reduction) function that provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 3.0 stops faster (based on CIPA Standards) contributes to reproducing sharp, crisp images even without a tripod.

Dazzling videos

4K Ultra HD videos with stereo sound

Record 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) videos with full stereo sound—quality that will amaze your friends and family. You can also shoot Full HD 1080/60p movies for smooth recording. In movie recording, Hybrid VR combines optical and electronic VR to keep your videos sharp and steady, especially during hand-held telephoto shooting. Frames from movies recorded in 4K UHD format can also be saved as still images* to preserve precious moments that cannot be captured with continuous still shooting.

Note: Full HD refers to this camera’s ability to record movies in 1920 x 1080 format.
*Images are saved in "Normal" image quality.

Sharper details in bright light and shadows

Active D-Lighting for movies and stills

Nikon's Active D-Lighting brings out the details in highlights and shadows, which can often be lost. It's particularly effective when shooting heavily backlit subjects or in situations with direct sunlight. Images can be captured just the way you see them, and video footage can be utilized with no further color grading.

Let your creativity shine

Creative Mode and P/S/A/M dial

Select from five preset Creative Modes and check out how they look with four different effects applied. You have a choice of 20 image options in total. A great way to capture dramatic nightscapes is with the Multiple Exposure Lighten function, which compares multiple images taken using interval timer photography then automatically composites the brightest parts to express light paths. The command dial lets you quickly access four exposure modes (P/S/A/M) and other manual settings for personal control that full auto cannot provide.
