Waterproof to 30m

You can take your camera to extremes: it’s shockproof to 2m, dustproof and cold resistant to -10°C. It’ll keep you shooting, wherever your adventures may take you.
NFC Support and Wi-Fi Connectivity
When you’re on the go, you can share your images and movies to an NFC-enabled¹ smart device just by tapping your camera or use the Wi-Fi² button for instant sharing.
NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens
The bright wide-angle 24mm f/2.8 lens is ideal for underwater or night landscape shots, while the 5x optical zoom makes close-ups easy and is extendable to 10x Dynamic Fine Zoom³.
Built-in GPS/GLONASS/QZSS support
Your shooting location can be recorded on your photos faster - and with more accurate longitude and latitude data - with GPS/GLONASS/QZSS satellite tracking.
Back-illuminated 16MP CMOS image sensor
You’ll get great performance and clearly detailed images with low noise, thanks to the sensitive 16-megapixel image sensor - even underwater and in low light conditions.
High-performance VR (vibration reduction)
Sharper images are guaranteed with the combination of Lens Shift VR and Electronic VR compensating for camera shake in active scenes or while zooming.
Create an impressive 10-second Time-lapse just by selecting a shooting scene. A time-transition movie will be automatically produced from stills captured with interval timing.
7.5-cm/3.0-in 921k-dot OLED screen
Frame your shots clearly and easily on the large, bright screen that has superior visibility whether you’re shooting in direct sunlight or underwater in low light.
If you want to track your movements right down to fine details, use the Log function to record your route. You can adjust the log interval to suit the level of tracking you want to achieve.
Full HD movies
Enjoy beautifully smooth Full HD movies (1080/60i) with stereo sound and minimal blur. You can start recording at the touch of a button and use the Movie options to delete unwanted footage during playback.
Altimeter and depth gauge
A pressure sensor lets you see your altitude or depth on-screen as you shoot, and those readings can be imprinted onto your images too. A log of altitude or depth can be recorded at regular intervals and made into a graph.
Built-in World Map
Save up to 30 shooting locations and easily access them with a dedicated Map button. Zoom in and out of maps by shaking the camera and scroll through them by tilting the camera.
Points of interest (POI)
Always know what’s nearby when you’re shooting, with POI recording the location of your photos and movies, and matching it to around 1.7 million points of interest.
Target finding AF
Getting clear focus on your subject is simple - even underwater and in low light - with fast and precise AF identifying your main subject for you and achieving focus automatically.
A built-in compass with 16 cardinal points takes the guesswork out of orientation. You can see it as you shoot and also via the map display.
Action control response button
When you’re underwater, in low light, or wearing thick gloves, the Action button makes shooting easy by allowing you operate key settings by shaking your camera up and down or to the front and rear.
Smart portrait mode
Take perfect portraits every time with a range of effects that you can apply during shooting, from Blink proof and Smile timer to Skin softening and Vividness.
Short movie show
Get creative and make your own mini-movies, with Short movie show automatically combining a number of movie files recorded to a fixed length to create a 30-second movie.
Variety of retouch functions
Retouch your photos as you shoot by choosing from 8 Special effects like Vividness for saturated colours, or 8 Quick Effects like Portrait, making your subject stand out in colour against a black and white background.
Let your camera guide you to the best settings by using the Scene mode function. All you need to do is choose the scene that’s closest to your shooting situation and all the settings will be optimised to match your choice.
You’ll always get outstanding image quality with Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing system giving you high-speed operation and high-sensitivity performance.
