Record Screens & Menus

AUTO mode allows the camera to choose all of the settings, so the only thing you have to do is point and shoot. With this Nikon you have control over the color mode, AF area and Auto Focus while in AUTO. Displayed on the screen are the flash, image stabilization, image size, ISO and number of remaining images.

When you half-press the shutter release the autofocus is locked and the exposure is calculated and set. If autofocus was successful the AF brackets will turn green, if it fails they will be red and blink.

Nikon's scene mode allows you to select from one of 17 Scene modes. The only options that you have control over in this mode is the size of the image that you want to capture.


Smart Portrait mode is an additional portrait shooting mode in addition to the scene mode. This mode activates the new Skin Softening and allows for the Smile timer, Blink proof and Blink warning features to work while you are shooting.This feature informs you if someone blinked at the time of the image capture.


The 4-way controller features shortcuts to common settings while you are shooting. Pressing it "Up" presents the flash options, "Right" Exposure Compensation, "Down" Macro Mode and "Right" is the self timer.
