3 features that effectively prevent or reduce blur caused by camera shake and subject movement
In addition to the Motion Detection and Nikon’s own BSS (best shot selector) functions, electronic vibration reduction (VR) effectively reduces blur caused by camera shake and subject movement.
The camera detects camera shake and subject movement with shooting, and automatically compensates by increasing shutter speed and ISO sensitivity. Blur is reduced to a level equal to a roughly 2-step increase in shutter speed.
Nikon’s own BSS:
The camera automatically shoots up to ten sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus
Electronic Vibration Reduction (VR):
Digital compensation is applied with image processing to images in which the camera detects blur
Powered by AA-size batteries readily available anywhere
The camera supports alkaline and lithium AA-size batteries that can be purchased anywhere. Batteries that are exhausted while away from home are easily replaced, enabling worry free shooting.
Compact body with an elegant design and improved operation
Designed to be extremely portable, the camera has a smooth and rounded shape with a high-quality look and feel and elegant finishing. A rotating zoom control is positioned on the top of the camera and buttons on the back of the camera are widely spaced for an improved, more steady grip with shooting. What’s more, the shooting mode button and playback button have been positioned on the back of the camera for simple operation.
