Nikon Launches the Nikon 1 V2 Camera and Speedlight SB-N7
Nikon released the Nikon 1 V2 today, the latest addition to its popular Nikon 1 V series of advanced camera with interchangeable lens, as well as its Speedlight SB-N7 accessory.
A compact and lightweight camera with a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) and flash, the highly functional Nikon 1 V2 places precise control in the user’s hands, and allows photographers to record unique images that would have been difficult or impossible to capture with other cameras of the same class. Designed for digital-SLR camera consumers who want a compact and reliable machine that is more portable than a D-SLR, the Nikon 1 V2 is also suitable for those advancing from a compact digital camera and consumers used to the automatic shooting mode, but wish to experiment with different shooting settings to capture their distinct brand of creativity.
The Nikon 1 V2 gives users a higher pixel count, faster speeds and greater performance through the combination of the latest EXPEED 3A image-processing engine, a super-high-speed AF CMOS image sensor and an effective pixel count of 14.2-million pixels. Powerful features include an electronic viewfinder (EVF); Live Image Control, which allows users to preview the effects of changing the camera’s settings, on the camera’s monitor prior to shooting; the ability to directly apply settings; and a new Slow View function, where the camera captures a short sequence of still images and plays them back in slow motion, allowing the user can choose the best frame to preserve as an image. Other greatly enhanced functions and features include an advanced hybrid AF system, Motion Snapshot, Smart Photo Selector, and full-HD movie recording.
