New Nikon camera can record slow motion video
Nikon has unveiled a new 14.2-megapixel digital camera with interchangeable lenses called the Nikon 1 V2. The camera is a follow-up to the original
Nikon 1 V1
digital camera that was introduced in September of 2011. The new version of the camera has an integrated flash and now sports a Command Mode Dial offering easy access to features and controls.
The new imaging sensor and Advanced Hybrid AF system allows the camera to shoot bursts at up to 15 frames per second with full AF tracking for moving subjects.
“The recent additions to the Nikon 1 System, including the new V2, demonstrate Nikon’s dedication to delivering a camera system that meets the needs of creative and expressive consumers looking for an easy-to-use camera that is portable enough to take on any life adventure,” said Bo Kajiwara, Vice President of Marketing, Planning and Customer Experience. “With a grip and control layout that is familiar to photographers, the V2’s incredible speed, versatility, ease of use and portability can be used in various situations to shoot amazing images and sharp HD video.”
The camera has an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 1.4 million dots. It has a number of automatic and manual shooting modes and features a three-inch LCD display on the back with a resolution of 921,000 dots. The camera supports the ISO range of 160-6400, and the advanced autofocusing system has 73 points of focus. The Nikon 1 V2 can shoot 15 frames per second bursts for up to 45 frames and can shoot even faster 60 frames per second bursts for up to 40 frames in a row.
The camera has an interesting Smart Photo Selector that takes up to 20 shots with a single press of the shutter and then selects the five best images to keep. The camera can also record slow-motion movies at 400 frames per second and 1200 frames per second offering manual exposure controls in the Advance Movie Mode.
The Nikon 1 V2 bundled in a kit with a 10-30 mm lens will launch in late November with an MSRP of $899.95.
