Nikon has today announced the launch of its new Nikon 1 V3 compact camera which will be available to purchase next month for $1,200 providing users with a camera equipped with a 18.4-million pixel super high-speed AF CMOS Sensor and support for 1080/60p video thanks to the new EXPEED 4A image-processing engine.
The new Nikon 1 V3 is equipped with interchangeable lenses and the fastest burst autofocus at full resolution in its class, together with built-in wireless connectivity. Offering users 105 focus points when phase-detection AF is used and 171 focus points when contrast-detect AF is used.
On the rear of the new Nikon 1 V3 compact camera Nikon has fitted a Tilting touch panel display which is 3 inches in size with easy access to the camera’s menu and options. Two new lenses have also been unveiled by Nikon this week in the form of the new 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-Zoom and 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 which are available to purchase for $300 and $1,000, respectively.
“The slim LCD monitor, with a depth of approximately 4 mm, is equipped with a tilting mechanism that allows it to be tilted down to approximately 87° for high-angle shooting, and up to approximately 170° for low-angle shooting, allowing users to adjust their angle according to the subject or scene to be captured.”
“The compact and lightweight body of the Nikon 1 V3 enables superior mobility, yet offers performance with tracking of moving subject that exceeds that of digital SLR cameras. It is a model that offers excellent image quality with superior sharpness and definition, and an operational feel similar to that of a digital SLR camera.”
