Movie Feature – captures Full HD video** with audio up to 1920x1080p resolution at 30/25/24 frames per second and 1280x720 at 60/50 fps. In-camera editing and effects available. Continuous autofocus operates during movie recording. 3.5mm external mic input. You can even extract still images from movie footage.
* As this camera does not have a built-in focusing motor it is only AF compatible with AF-S and AF-I Nikkor lenses, which are equipped with an autofocus motor. However it will work with other Nikon lenses but in Manual Focus only. This camera will only autofocus with Sigma lenses that have a designation of HSM (Hypersonic Motor) or that state “built-in motor for Nikon”. This camera will only autofocus with Tamron lenses that state “built-in motor for Nikon” or “USD” designation.
** We recommend using class 4 or higher memory cards for recording high definition video. SDHC Memory Cards and SDXC Memory Cards can be used only in equipment that is compatible with their respective formats.
