It’s small and light enough to slip in a pocket or bag, so you’re always ready to shoot close-ups of friends and family with the NIKKOR 8x optical zoom, extendable to 16x Dynamic Fine Zoom and keep your camera connected to your smart device with SnapBridge.

Slender styling brings elegance, and with a depth of approximately 20.1 mm and a weight of around 119 g, you’ll enjoy a compact camera body that will slip easily into a pocket or handbag so you can carry it anywhere, any time. Available in a range of bright, stylish colours, this is the camera that looks good, fits your lifestyle perfectly, and takes beautiful high-resolution photos and movies.


SnapBridge maintains a constant, low-power connection between your camera and your smartphone or tablet to give you easy control over your photographic life. Now you can sync shots to your smart device while you shoot, and share Nikon-quality images in an instant. You can also control key camera functions via your phone, keep your camera on time and up-to-date, and more.



A world of possibilities opens up when you have quality NIKKOR optics in an 8x zoom that’s extendable to 16x Dynamic Fine Zoom, offering a wide-angle 25mm to 200mm angle of view (equivalent 35mm format). You can capture fun facial expressions up close, get all your friends into a group shot, record every aspect of family celebrations, or shoot unique details while travelling.


With High-performance VR effectively reducing camera shake for greater stability, sharp shots are guaranteed even at full zoom. When you’re taking stills, Lens-shift VR provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 3.0 stops faster (based on CIPA standards, at the maximum telephoto position).



View your subjects and scenes clearly on the LCD screen, making it simple to frame your shots for both stills and movies. You’ll always have crystal clear visibility even in bright sunlight, thanks to an anti-reflection coating and brightness adjustment that can be modified through 5 levels.


When you’re travelling or out capturing the fun of family celebrations, having a long battery life is vital to ensure you never miss a memorable moment. Keep shooting when it matters most with approximately 240 shots per charge.

Special effects and Quick effects

Special effects and Quick effects

It’s easy to enhance your photos with Special effects as you shoot, like Mirror effect that shows your subject and their mirror image in a single shot, Selective Color adding a pop of vivid colour to a monochrome image, or Nostalgic sepia creating photos with a retro look. Give shots a completely different look instantly in playback with Quick effects like Painting or Fisheye or adjust the tone with Cross screen to add a starbust effect to light sources in your images.
