Nikon Announced Nikon 1 V2 Interchangeable Lens Camera

NIKON 1 V2

Nikon 1 V2

The Nikon 1 V2 is an upgrade of the older V1 MILC which Nikon launched along with the J1. The new V2 uses a 13.2mm x 8.8mm CMOS sensor that churns out a hefty 14.2 million pixels resolution. It is compatible with the current crop of Nikon 1 mount lenses. The sensor produces large images (in 3:2 aspect ratio) of 4,608 x 3,072 pixels. It also shoots full HD videos in 60i and 30p. It can also shoot videos in 1280 x 720 at 60p. The V2 comes with an EVF 0.47” size with 1440k resolution and 100% frame coverage. Additionally a 3” diagonal monitor of resolution 921,000 dots provides a bright display for composing of the frame if required be and for reviewing the images and videos shot.

The Electronically-controlled vertical-travel focal plane mechanical shutter offers a fast shutter speed of 1/16,000th of a second. At the slow end the shutter speed is only 30 second. The continuous high speed drive offers a maximum burst rate of 5 frames per second. The V2 is powered by an EN-EL21 Lithium-ion Battery which provides 310 shots per charge.

The metering mode offers three options of matrix, spot and center-weighted metering of the frame. There are several exposure modes available for the V2 including scene auto selector, manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, aperture priority auto and programmed auto. The available scene modes include portrait, landscape, night landscape, night portrait, close-up and auto. The overall weight of the camera is 278 grams only. Available at Amazon | Adorama | B&H
