The pro-quality compact camera you can take everywhere.
The DL18-50 f/1.8-2.8 has one of the most impressive ultra-wide-angle lenses ever created. Shoot at f/1.8 with an 18mm equivalent angle of view, faster than any wide angle NIKKOR lens yet. Add beautiful bokeh to wide-angle compositions, and use faster shutter speeds in low light. A large 1.0-inch type 20.8 MP backside illumination CMOS image sensor is combined with EXPEED 6A image processing and one of the most impressive autofocus systems of any compact fixed lens camera system for up 20 fps continuous shooting with full AF performance, cinematic 4K Ultra HD videos, time-lapse, slow motion and Superlapse movies, noise-free images from ISO 160 to 12,800 and much more.
Fast 18-50mm f/1.8-2.8 NIKKOR lens
Like all DL series cameras, the DL18-50 f/1.8-2.8 is built around an exceptional NIKKOR zoom lens. Its versatile 24-85mm focal length range is ideal for everyday photography, portraits and travel, and its f/1.8 max aperture lets you add beautiful bokeh to your shots and use faster shutter speeds in low light. Aspherical, ED and HRI glass elements—the same technology used in professional DSLR lenses—deliver maximum clarity and minimum distortion, while Nikon's original Fluorine coat repels dust, water, oil and more. Dual Detect Optical VR image stabilization ensures sharp images and steady videos when shooting handheld.
Large 1.0-in type backside illumination 20.8 MP CMOS sensor
At the heart of each DL series camera is a high performance backside illumination CX-format image sensor with an extra wide dynamic range. It's 4x larger than the sensor used in a typical compact camera. Combined with new ultra-fast EXPEED 6A image processing, it captures 20.8 MP images and 4K UHD videos with minimal noise, maximum definition and flawless color reproduction from ISO 160 to 12,800. A built-in ND filter lets you maintain that f/1.8 aperture and slow shutter speeds in bright sunlight. And without an optical low-pass filter, it can take full advantage of the lens' exceptional rendering performance for stunningly detailed images. Never compromise image quality again.
Advanced Hybrid AF for ultra-fast performance
The DL series responds to your creative intentions unlike any compact camera on the market. 171 focus points cover a wide area of the image frame at high density, while the Hybrid AF system instantly identifies subjects and selects the appropriate AF method: either 105-point phase detection AF, which excels at acquiring moving subjects, or 171-point contrast-detect AF, which allows extremely accurate focusing even in dark situations. Outpace the fastest DSLRs continuous shooting speeds up to approximately 20 fps with full AF performance and up to 60 fps with fixed focus. Capture with incredible speed and precision.
4K Ultra HD videos with stereo sound
Create movies that amaze in the high video quality of 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160/30p) that can be output uncompressed via HDMI. Shutter speeds up to 1/(frame rate) second are available, and rolling shutter distortion has been effectively eliminated. Auto ISO adjusts exposure according to the lighting conditions, delivering natural-looking images with rich gradation, even in scenes where lightness varies dramatically. Bend time with Superlapse, which lets you relive an experience at double speed, time-lapse, which condenses dramatic transitions into just 10 seconds, or slow-motion, which reproduces key moments with added impact. Even capture stills while recording.
SnapBridge eliminates the barrier between your camera and a compatible smart device, through a combination of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology and a dedicated app. Plus, support for Wi-Fi® and NFC further expands wireless connectivity.
