Nikon Announces New Cameras and Accessories
Nikon has rolled out four new products worldwide - the Nikon 1 J2, a 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, a waterproof case WP-N1, and the COOLPIX L610.
Nikon 1 J2
The latest addition to the Nikon 1 J series comes with Nikon's exclusive compact and lightweight Nikon 1 lens mount. With Advanced hybrid AF system, the camera allows high-speed continuous shooting and enables new imaging experiences with features such as Motion Snapshot and Smart Photo Selector. Also, a new Creative mode has been added to the four original shooting modes.
Equipped with the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine, the Nikon 1 J2 is ideal for compact digital camera users accustomed to portability and want to upgrade to an advanced camera with an interchangeable lens system.
