Nikon is one of the first companies in this product segment to add language support to its cameras. “The Indian language in camera menu is in-line with our mission of promoting photography culture in India and a testament to the conscious effort of refining our capabilities to create new value for the image taking process. With this functionality we are enabling consumers with greater ease of using the camera and utilizing the technical features. We are hopeful that the language support will help consumers become comfortable with their camera and enjoy photography,” Hiroshi Takashina, Managing Director, Nikon India said.

This new feature will be quite useful for many of those who are not comfortable with the English language and will enable them to develop an easier and quicker coordination with Nikon’s cameras.
