The Nikon 1 V2 camera has made its debut, tagging along new ways for photographers to be ‘creative and expressive.’ The snapper packs in fresh features, compared to other members of the 1 series, which are aimed towards delivering an improved shooting experience.
A 14.2MP CX-format CMOS sensor does all the magic here combined with the Hybrid AF system which allows users to snap up stills at 15fps. The Nikon camera can maintain full AF to enable image capture of fast moving objects. Owing to the new Expeed 3A image processing engine, the device should deliver clear and vivid pictures in addition to 1080p full HD videos. Users will be able to click stills and record visuals simultaneously though the Advance Movie Mode. This setting also enables slow-motion capture at up to 400 fps and 1200 fps.
The new attributes included in this snapper comprise of an ergonomic grip for better handling, a built-in flash and a Command Mode Dial for quick access to various features and settings. The device houses a 3-inch LCD display and an electronic viewfinder for visuals. In terms of dimensions, it measures 4.2 x 3.2 x 1.8 inches and weighs not more than 278 grams. Additionally, this camera is said to be compatible with Nikon 1 Nikkor lenses as well as accessories, and F-Mount Nikkor lenses through the FT-1 mount adapter.
The Nikon 1 V2 camera carries a price tag of $899.95 which includes a 10mm to 30mm lens. It will be available late November, while the SB-N7 speedlight release date is pegged for January 2013 at $159.95.
