A variety of accessories are available for your Nikon camera.

Power sources
  • EN-EL15b Rechargeable Li-ion Battery: Additional EN-EL15b batteries are available from local retailers and Nikon service representatives. EN-EL15a/EN-EL15 batteries can also be used, but note that you may not be able to take as many pictures on a single charge (0 Battery Endurance).
  • MH-25a Battery Charger: The MH-25a can be used to recharge EN-EL15b batteries. MH-25 battery chargers can also be used.
  • MB-N10 Battery Pack: A battery pack for Nikon mirrorless cameras. Attached to the camera, it allows the use of two EN-EL15b rechargeable Li-ion batteries as a power source.
  • EH-7P Charging AC Adapter: The EH-7P can be used to charge EN-EL15b batteries inserted in the camera (the battery only charges when the camera is off). It cannot be used to charge EN-EL15a/EN-EL15 batteries.
  • EP-5B Power Connector, EH-5c and EH-5b AC Adapters: These accessories can be used to power the camera for extended periods. The EP-5B is required to connect the camera to the EH-5c/EH-5b; see “Attaching a Power Connector and AC Adapter” (0 Attaching a Power Connector and AC Adapter) for details.
Filters
  • 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).
Mount adapters FTZ Mount Adapter (0 FTZ Mount Adapter User’s Manual)
Remote cords MC-DC2 Remote Cord (length 1 m/3 ft 4 in.): When connected to the camera accessory terminal, the MC-DC2 can be used to release the shutter remotely.
GPS units GP-1/GP-1A GPS Unit: When connected to the camera accessory terminal, existing GP-1/GP-1A units can be used to record the current latitude, longitude, altitude, and UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) with pictures taken with the camera. Note that production of GP-1/GP-1A units has ended.
USB cables
  • UC-E24 USB cable: A USB cable with a type C connector for connection to the camera and a type A connector for connection to the USB device.
  • UC-E25 USB cable: A USB cable with two type C connectors.
HDMI cables HC-E1 HDMI Cable: An HDMI cable with a type C connector for connection to the camera and a type A connector for connection to HDMI devices.
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.
Wireless transmitters

WT-7 Wireless Transmitter: Use the WT-7 to upload pictures over a wireless network, to control the camera from a computer running Camera Control Pro 2 (available separately), or to take and browse pictures remotely from a computer or smart device.

Note: A wireless network and some basic network knowledge is required when using a wireless transmitter. Be sure to update the wireless transmitter software to the latest version.

Wireless remote controllers
  • WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller/WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controller: When a WR-R10 wireless remote controller is attached to the accessory terminal, the camera can be controlled wirelessly using a WR-T10 wireless remote controller (when connecting the WR-R10, be sure the cover for the accessory terminal and the USB and HDMI connectors is fully open). The WR-R10 can also be used to control radio-controlled flash units. For synchronized release involving more than one camera, ready multiple cameras with paired WR-R10 units attached.
  • WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller: WR-1 units are used with WR-R10 or WR-T10 wireless remote controllers or with other WR-1 remote controllers, with the WR-1 units functioning as either transmitters or receivers. As a transmitter, the WR-1 can be used to control the camera and take pictures via signals transmitted to a receiver (a WR-R10 or a second WR-1) connected to the camera accessory terminal, while as a receiver it receives remote commands from a WR-T10 or a separate WR-1 transmitter.

Note: Be sure the firmware for the WR-R10 and WR-1 has been updated to the latest version (WR-R10 firmware version 3.0 or later and WR-1 firmware version 1.0.1 or later). For information on firmware updates, see the Nikon website for your area. Consult a Nikon-authorized service representative when updating the firmware for the WR-R10 from versions prior to version 2.0 to version 3.0 or later.

Viewfinder eyepiece accessories

DK-29 Rubber Eyecup: The DK-29 makes the image in the viewfinder easier to see, preventing eye fatigue.

Microphones
  • 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.
Software

Camera Control Pro 2: Control the camera remotely from a computer and save photographs directly to the computer hard disk. When Camera Control Pro 2 is used to capture photographs directly to the computer, a PC connection indicator (PC) will appear in the control panel.

Note: Use the latest versions of Nikon software; see the Nikon website for your region for the latest information on supported operating systems. At default settings, Nikon Message Center 2 will periodically check for updates to Nikon software and firmware while you are logged in to an account on the computer and the computer is connected to the Internet. A message is automatically displayed when an update is found.

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