26x high-power zoom with wide-angle 22.5 mm* coverage in a compact body
Remarkably, this compact body contains a NIKKOR lens with a powerful 26x optical zoom covering from wide-angle 22.5 mm to super-telephoto 585 mm *. Such outstanding range and reach makes it as easy to zoom out to compose a large group or broad horizon as it is to zoom in from a distance.

High-performance lens-shift VR minimizes image blur of your images
When still images or movies are being shot, Nikon's high-performance lens-shift VR (Vibration Reduction) compensates for camera shake to keep results sharp. This is especially advantageous for telephoto shooting, which tends to be more easily and strongly affected by camera shake as images are recorded. So you can expect results using lens-shift VR to be clearer than ever before.
Designed for extra-easy holding and viewing
Take life easy, with the help of a handgrip designed to ensure an extra-firm hold for minimal camera shake. Views during shooting and playback are enhanced by a 7.5 cm/3-in. TFT LCD monitor.
Leave great shooting up to the camera
Easy auto mode lets you simply turn on the camera and start shooting, with automatic selection of the most appropriate choice among Portrait, Night portrait, Night landscape, Landscape, Backlighting and Close-up scene modes, enabling capture of images exactly as you imagine them.
