Nikon 1 cameras: official specs, price confirmed
Jump to our hands-on review of the Nikon 1 Cameras
Nikon has revealed it's first line of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, the Nikon 1 V1 and Nikon 1 J1, which it claims is the world's fastest and smallest of its kind.
The Nikon 1 cameras boast Nikon's Expeed 3 processor, which Nikon claims is faster than most professional cameras. The processor is equipped with two engines that Nikon claims can process images at 600 megapixels per second.
The Nikon 1 V1 and Nikon 1 J1 also feature a 73-point Phase Detection AF system for shiny or moving subjects, and for stationary and poorly lit subjects the Nikon 1 AF opts for a 135-point Contrast Detect AFsystem.
The Nikon 1 cameras feature a new Nikon 1 CX-format CMOS image sensor designed for Nikon 1 cameras and the 1-mount, offering 10-megapixel resolution.
Other key Nikon 1 specs include raw shooting, full HD video recording and an ISO range from 100-6400.
In still image mode the Nikon 1 cameras can shoot full resolution shots at up to 60 frames per second, while Smart Photo Selector shoots 20 full-res images before you've fully depressed the shutter button, Nikon claims. In SPS your best five shots are saved based on composition, focus and expression. Then your 'perfect' shot is presented to you.
In the Nikon 1 Motion Snapshot mode the camera records a slow motion movie and a still image and combines them to create a photo that moves.
The Nikon 1 cameras also Mark the launch of Nikon's Advanced Camera with Interchangeable Lens (A-CIL) range.
According to the Nikon announcement, the Nikon 1 V1 offers a high-resolution electronic viewfinder with a bright 1440k-dot electronic viewfinder that delivers 100% frame coverage. It boasts a magnesium alloy (top and front) panel and a multi-accessory port for use with the Nikon 1 range of system accessories. The Nikon 1 V1 is available in matte black and high-gloss white.
The Nikon 1 J1 comes in a "super-small body" in a range of colours with compact 1 NIKKOR lenses to match, and it boasts a built-in flash that offers extra light when you need it, according to Nikon. The Nikon announcement says: The Nikon 1 J1 is so simple to use, all you need to do is decide what to shoot. The colours are high-gloss white, matte black, high-gloss red, silver and even hot pink."
