More beautiful images faster with Nikon's latest image processing engine
The latest evolution of Nikon's EXPEED C2 image processing engine features enhanced performance that yields a yet higher level of image quality. A dramatic increase in the speed of noise reduction processing enables greater resolving capability. In addition, the engine's ability to predetermine the presence of noise specific to any given sensitivity level accelerates the speed with which processing can be performed. This enables precise noise reduction for edges and throughout the image that produces clear, sharp results for maximum image quality.
Maximized performance and streamlined workflow
Instant start-up and improved AF speed combine with a shorter shutter release time lag to optimize all system operations so they keep you ahead of the action. In addition, the increased speed of switching between functions and support for SDXC memory cards improve the response in operating workflow for more liberating, stress-free camera operation.
Outstanding flexibility and control
Further enhancing usability is a 7.5 cm (3-in.) vari-angle 921k-dot high-resolution Clear color display that can be tilted to enable more flexible shooting in a wide range of applications. Front and rear command dials offer control over settings without removing your hands from the grip.
Special effects enable greater artistic expression
Enhance your images with a variety of Special effects that are easy to set while shooting. Choose from the 'Zoom exposure' and 'Defocus during exposure' mechanical processes, or Special effects modes that include Soft, Nostalgic sepia, High-contrast monochrome, High key, Low key, Selective color, Creative monochrome, and Painting. In-camera Filter effects also available let you apply similar Soft, Selective color, Cross screen, Fisheye, Miniature effect, and Painting to shots already taken.
Eye-Fi support - Transfer photos and movies wirelessly
Support for optional Eye-Fi SD cards lets you transfer photos and movies from the camera to a PC via wireless LAN. This eliminates the need for removing the memory card or USB connections to transfer data. Note: See the manual provided with the Eye-Fi card, and direct any inquiries to the manufacturer. The camera can be used to turn Eye-Fi cards on and off, but may not support other Eye-Fi functions. As of August 2011, the following cards can be used: 4 GB SDHC Eye-Fi cards in the Connect X2 product categories, and 8 GB SDHC cards in the Mobile X2 and Pro X2 product categories. Eye-Fi cards are for use only in the country of purchase. Be sure the Eye-Fi card firmware has been updated to the latest version.
