Touch the stars. Roost with eagles. The sky is no longer the limit when you have an extraordinary 125x optical zoom. Capture sharp photos and videos of subjects that were out of reach—until now.
Moonscapes. Wildlife. Distant aircraft. The 125x optical zoom is the world’s biggest. Its focal-length range of 24–3000mm puts amazing within your reach. The 250x Dynamic Fine Zoom digitally extends the upper zoom limit to an incredible 6000 mm.² ³ Take in the whole scene with a wide-angle composition or zoom in on the tiniest details. Even those on the surface of the moon.
Enjoy sharp results even when shooting at ultra-high-telephoto focal lengths. Bright f/2.8-8 NIKKOR lens, 16 MP sensor, and RAW support. The sensitive backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and bright f/2.8-8 NIKKOR lens give you the freedom to shoot in low light. Nikon’s powerful EXPEED image-processing engine and advanced lens technologies minimise distortion even at high zoom. The fast autofocus system lets you shoot action at up to 7 fps. And RAW support lets you save and export uncompressed image files to your processing/editing program of choice.
Compose incredible shots with the camera’s high-resolution electronic viewfinder and large vari-angle monitor. The ultra-high-definition (approx. 2,360k-dot) electronic viewfinder gives a clear, detailed view of your shot even in bright conditions. And the bright 3.2-in 921k-dot LCD monitor can be tilted and twisted in almost any direction. An eye sensor automatically switches from monitor shooting to viewfinder shooting the instant you raise the camera to your face.
Super-telephoto 4K movies - Capture stellar 4K/UHD video footage with stereo sound. Get up close to the rocket launch. Film the eaglet’s first flight from a distant hide. Easily record 4K/UHD 30p footage, or Full HD (1080p) video at frame rates of up to 60p. The camera supports clean HDMI out, so you can output videos to an external monitor during recording. And the camera’s built-in microphone jack allows use of an external microphone for sharper sound. In-camera movie functions include Superlapse, which lets you create a fast-motion sequence of changing landscapes and unique perspectives. And Time-lapse is perfect for recording skyscapes, star trails, and the passage of the moon across the night sky.
Steady Images - Nikon’s Vibration Reduction compensates for camera shake. Get steady photos and video footage, even when shooting handheld at telephoto lengths. Nikon’s Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) system lets you shoot up to five shutter stops slower than would otherwise be possible.⁴ The effects of camera shake are minimised even in low-light situations, and you can capture sharper stills and movies without under-exposing. VR Active mode delivers a more stable viewfinder and monitor image, which is ideal when you’re on the move. Whether it’s a condor spotted from the back of the jeep or a breaching whale seen from the deck of the boat—you’ll compose the perfect shot.

This camera’s generous grip ensures a stable hold and the side zoom control lets you extend the lens with your thumb. A simple press of the snap-back zoom button will retract the lens to a wider angle, making it easy to pick up subjects that have moved out of shot.
