4.1 (effective) megapixels: Nikon original JFET imaging sensor LBCAST for high-resolution images (2,464 X 1,632 pixels) offers 4.1 effective megapixels. New ASIC reduces noise and greatly improves image quality.
Increased buffer capacity: For continuous shooting, the increased buffer capacity allows 40 RAW (NEF) shots and up to 50 JPEG images for demanding action photographers.
Advanced 3D-Color Matrix Metering II: Advanced 3D color offers more refined exposure evaluation algorithms and a larger database for difficult-to-meter scenes.
Improved wireless capabilities: With added support for Nikon WT-2A Wireless Transmitter, you'll get improved transfer speeds up to 54mbs using 802.11g technology and easier connection settings with FTP + PTP/IP for wireless camera control using the latest Nikon Capture 4.2 software.
GPS support: Connect with GPS devices that comply with the NMEA 0183 interface standard to record latitude, longitude, altitude and UTC data.
Multi-CAM 2000 AF sensor module: Equipped with 11 sensors, 9 that are cross-type, effectively covering the majority of the image area and providing razor-sharp focus and limitless possibilities. See the action, keep it all in focus. Refined AF system includes revisions-to-lens drive algorithms for improved focus precision, subject acquisition and subject tracking.
