A variety of accessories are available for your Nikon camera.

Power sources
  • EN-EL25a/EN-EL25 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery: Additional EN-EL25a/EN-EL25 batteries are available from local retailers and Nikon service representatives. The number of shots that can be taken (battery life) differs (0 Battery Endurance) because the battery capacity differs when using the EN-EL25a and the EN-EL25.
  • MH-32 Battery Charger: The MH-32 can be used to recharge EN-EL25a/EN-EL25 batteries.
  • EH-73P Charging AC Adapter: The EH-73P can be used to charge EN-EL25a/EN-EL25 batteries inserted in the camera (the battery only charges when the camera is off).
  • Neutral Color (NC) filters can be used to protect the lens.
  • To prevent ghosting, avoid using filters when the subject is framed against a bright light, or when a bright light source is in the frame.
  • Center-weighted metering is recommended if matrix metering fails to produce the desired results for filters with exposure factors (filter factors) over 1× (Y44, Y48, Y52, O56, R60, X0, X1, C-PL, ND2S, ND4, ND4S, ND8, ND8S, ND400, A2, A12, B2, B8, B12). See the filter manual for details.
  • Filters intended for special-effects photography may interfere with autofocus or the in-focus indicator (I).
USB cables UC-E21 USB cable: A USB cable with a Micro-B connector for connection to the camera and a type A connector for connection to the USB device.
Hot shoe adapters AS-15 Sync Terminal Adapter: Mount the AS-15 on the camera hot shoe to connect studio strobe lights or other flash equipment via a sync terminal.
Accessory shoe covers BS-1 Accessory Shoe Cover: A cover protecting the accessory shoe when no flash unit is attached.
Body caps BF-N1 Body Cap: The body cap prevents dust entering the camera when a lens is not in place.
Viewfinder eyepiece accessories

DK-30 Rubber Eyecup: The DK-30 makes the image in the viewfinder easier to see, preventing eye fatigue.



Mount adapters

FTZ Mount Adapter: An adapter that allows NIKKOR F mount lenses to be used with digital cameras that support interchangeable Z mount lenses. The picture angle is equivalent to that of a lens with a 35 mm format-equivalent focal length approximately 1.5 times longer.

  • For information on attaching, removing, maintaining, and using FTZ mount adapters, refer to the mount adapter manual.
  • ME-1 Stereo Microphone: Connect the ME-1 to the camera microphone jack to record stereo sound and reduce the chance of picking up equipment noise (such as the sounds produced by the lens during autofocus).
  • ME-W1 Wireless Microphone: Use this wireless Bluetooth microphone for off-camera recording.
Remote controls

ML-L7 Remote Control: Once paired with the camera, the ML-L7 can be used to take photographs and record movies remotely.

  • Use the Wireless remote (ML-L7) options > Save wireless remote controller option in the camera setup menu to pair the camera with the remote.
  • The camera can be paired with only one remote at a time. If paired successively with more than one remote, the camera will respond only to the remote with which it was last paired.
  • To reactivate the camera after the standby timer has expired and the monitor and viewfinder displays have turned off, turn the remote control on and press and hold the remote-control shutter-release or movie-record button.
  • For more information, see the remote control manual or the section on the setup menu Wireless remote (ML-L7) options item in the “Menu Guide” chapter of the Reference Manual.

Availability may vary with country or region. See our website or brochures for the latest information.

Charging AC Adapters

When inserted in the camera, EN-EL25a/EN-EL25 rechargeable Li-ion batteries will charge while the camera is connected to an optional EH-73P charging AC adapter. Either battery, when exhausted, will fully charge in about 3 hours and 30 minutes. Note that in countries or regions where required, charging AC adapters are supplied with a plug adapter attached; the shape of the plug adapter varies with the country of sale.

  1. Insert the EN-EL25a/EN-EL25 into the camera (0 Insert the Battery and a Memory Card).

  2. After confirming that the camera is off, connect the charging AC adapter using the USB cable supplied with the camera and plug the adapter in. Use only a UC-E21 USB cable and an EH-73P charging adapter; do not use other charging adapters or third-party USB-AC adapters or smartphone chargers. Insert the plug or plug adapter straight into the socket rather than at an angle, and observe the same precaution when unplugging the charging AC adapter.

    Charge lamp

    The camera charge lamp lights amber while charging is in progress and turns off when charging is complete. Note that although the camera can be used while connected, the battery will not charge and the camera will not draw power from the charging AC adapter while the camera is on.

  3. Unplug and disconnect the charging AC adapter when charging is complete.

The Charge Lamp

If the battery cannot be charged using the charging AC adapter, for example because the battery is not compatible or the temperature of the camera is elevated, the charge lamp will flash rapidly for about 30 seconds and then turn off. If the charge lamp is off and you did not observe the battery charging, turn the camera on and check the battery level.
