NIKKOR 60X OPTICAL ZOOM CONSTRUCTED WITH SUPER ED GLASS ELEMENT
Capture wildlife from a safe distance, shoot stars in the night sky, or take impressive shots at sporting events with the outstandingly long-range 60x NIKKOR zoom lens, extendable to 120x Dynamic Fine Zoom¹. The zoom range covers from 24 mm wide angle to super-telephoto 1440 mm angles of view (equivalent in 35 mm format) and supports powerful macro photography for subjects as close as approximately 1 cm to the lens. Superior performance is guaranteed with trusted NIKKOR optics, featuring Super ED glass. A Super ED lens has advanced capabilities, including an extremely high ability to remove secondary spectra, offering superior chromatic aberration correction characteristics.
20.3 EFFECTIVE MEGAPIXELS CMOS SENSOR AND HIGH PERFORMANCE AUTOFOCUS (AF) SYSTEM
The high megapixel count of the camera’s CMOS image sensor allows in more light for finer detail capture in your images, while the ultra-responsive high-speed AF locks onto your subject rapidly, so you’ll never miss a decisive moment. Target finding AF allows for more flexible composition, as the optimal focus area size and position are chosen according to the subject. When you aim your camera at your subject, it instantly predicts the area where focus should be acquired. The active focus area is automatically set in relation to the size of the subject, ensuring all images will be in clear focus. Target finding AF is as effective with subjects in the centre of frame as those that are off-centre, and works as well for smaller subjects like flowers and food as it does for human subjects.
4K UHD/30P MOVIES WITH STEREO SOUND
Shoot impressively smooth movies in 4K Ultra High Definition (3840x2160/30p) – ensuring that your recordings are state-of-the-art and future-proof as 4K UHD becomes standard – with great sound quality from the zoom microphone, which adjusts directivity along with zoom operation. Start filming instantly with a dedicated movie-record button. HDMI support means you can connect your camera to a TV or other external monitor with an optional HDMI cable.
BUILT-IN ELECTRONIC VIEWFINDER (EVF)
The high-definition 921k-dot, 0.2-in LCD (with diopter adjustment) electronic viewfinder gives 100% of frame coverage, so you’ll always know exactly what you’re shooting. Switch shooting styles seamlessly from screen to viewfinder, as the eye sensor automatically switches from monitor shooting when your eye gets close to the sensor. Viewfinder shooting is useful for cramped conditions and also ensures stable posture, minimising camera shake.
921K-DOT, 7.5-CM/3.0-IN VARI-ANGLE LCD MONITOR
The large vari-angle screen gives huge flexibility for creating different viewpoints – shoot high over crowds at concerts, take a low angle for wildlife and nature images, or shoot at a completely unique angle for architectural or travel shots. Self-shooting is simple with the vari-angle monitor, making it easy to add your personal commentary to the movies you’re shooting or snap a quick selfie when you’re in an unusual location. RGBW alignment provides superior visibility even in direct sunlight and offers low power consumption.
5-STOP DUAL DETECT OPTICAL VR (VIBRATION REDUCTION)
Vibration reduction reduces camera shake so you’ll always get sharp images with optimal exposure, regardless of your shooting conditions. The 5-stop Dual Detect Optical VR² gives a compensation effect equivalent to a shutter speed 5 stops faster. This can eliminate the need for faster shutter speeds, preventing issues like improper exposure or over-increased sensitivity. By utilising the camera shake information detected by the angular velocity sensor together with the data on direction and amount of camera shake (motion vector information), the newly-developed VR algorithm enables a more accurate calculation of the amount of image blur to achieve a greatly enhanced vibration reduction performance.
SnapBridge maintains a constant, low-power connection between your camera and your smartphone or tablet to give you easy control over your photographic life. Now you can sync shots to your smart device while you shoot, and share Nikon-quality images in an instant. You can also control key camera functions via your phone, keep your camera on time and up-to-date, and more.
FAST START-UP TIME, HIGH-SPEED AF AND SHORT SHOOTING TIME LAG
When there are no second chances for a shot, you can rely on the super-responsive operation of the B700. With a fast start-up time of approximately 1.3 seconds, High-speed AF giving you crystal clear focus in around 0.9 seconds, and short shooting time lag, you’ll be capturing the action the second that it starts. You’ll never miss a crucial moment again.
SHOOT RAW (NRW) IMAGES
Back to top
Shooting RAW in Nikon’s NRW format means you never have to worry about any degradation in image quality. When images are written to the memory card in NRW format, the exposure compensation, white balance, hue, tone and sharpening information are saved as instruction sets within the file. You can change the instruction set on your images as many times as you like without ever disturbing the original RAW data.
