  • • The frame size is 1024 x 768 pixels (XGA). Some web conferencing apps may use different aspect ratios.
  • • Once a connection has been established between the camera and computer, be careful not to remove the memory card while the memory card access lamp is lit.
  • • Live view may not end automatically when the live view auto off timer expires.
  • • Live view may not end when the camera is turned off and then on again, in which case it can be ended by turning the camera on and off a second time.
  • • The camera may not exit [PC mode] when the web conferencing app closes. [PC mode] can be ended by disconnecting the USB cable.
  • • Extend retractable lenses before use.

  • • Live view may take more time to start if the memory card contains a large number of pictures.
  • • If the Nikon Webcam Utility is chosen as the video input source while NX Tether, Camera Control Pro 2, or Nikon Transfer 2 is running, a connection to the camera will not be established and the view through the camera lens will not be displayed.
  • • When Webcam Utility is accessed from multiple web conferencing apps simultaneously, live view will be available to only one app.
