Advanced hybrid autofocus system with wide coverage of phase-detection AF
The Nikon 1 J3 automatically selects between two types of AF to capture sharp images. For sports and other fast-action scenes, phase-detection AF comes into play. With its wide coverage of 73 autofocus points, the Nikon 1 J3 quickly tracks, brings into focus, and captures fast-moving subjects. When you shoot under low light, contrast-detect AF activates to reveal subtle details in the scene.
Area covered by phase-detection AF + contrast-detect AF (73 AF points)
Area covered by contrast-detect AF (135 AF points)
High-speed continuous shooting at approx. 15 fps with continuous focusing
High speed isn't the only thing that is extraordinary about Nikon 1's continuous shooting.
The autofocus of Nikon 1 V2 tracks the subject and allows you to capture an impressive series of sharp images even when shooting at a high speed of approx. 15 fps, such as a bicycle approaching rapidly. What's more, Nikon 1 V2 can continuously capture the scene at approx. 60 fps with focus position for the first frame fixed, useful when shooting a fast-moving subject in a stationary position such as someone taking a golf swing.
Note: Number of pictures possible with high-speed continuous shooting is approx. 45 frames at 15 fps, and 40 frames at 60 fps.Comparison with competitors' models Simultaneous recording of Full HD videos and stills in sharp focus
Nikon 1 V2 offers Full HD video (1920 x 1080) with extremely high resolving power. Equipped with phase-detection AF, it lets you keep even a moving subject in sharp focus. Nikon 1 V2 also allows you to capture still images with an aspect ratio of 3:2 by pressing the shutter-release button while recording a movie at 16:9, without interrupting movie recording.
Now you no longer have to choose between stills and movies – both can be yours with the small, yet versatile Nikon 1.
Capture the perfect moment in slow motion – Slow view
Critical moments in particular scenes, like a skateboarder taking to the air and performing a dynamic trick, are often very difficult to capture. But with the new "slow view" function, such perfect moments can be yours. When you press down the shutter-release button of Nikon 1 V2 halfway, the camera rapidly captures a series of 40 frames. While the shutter-release button is half-pressed, the camera shows you each frame in slow motion on the electronic viewfinder or the LCD monitor continuously, so you can choose the best moment to extract for a still image. Once you've made your decision, all you have to do is press the shutter-release button all the way and the camera will store the perfect moment of your choice.
Catch the very best moments without effort – Smart Photo Selector
You can time your shot just right, and still miss the perfect moment because of blurring in the image or a subject blinking. Nikon 1's Smart Photo Selector is a function that automatically captures those decisive moments, such as the fleeting expressions of your loved ones or other hard-to-time shots like group photos at a party. All you have to do is press the shutter-release button and the camera will capture a sequence of scenes before and after you press the button. Based on the image composition and motion, it will then automatically select the best shot and four reserves or, with Nikon 1 V2, you can discard the reserves and just save the best shot. This function is also convenient when you want to ask someone to take a photo of you and your friends.Enjoy the option of the mechanical shutter
Nikon 1 V2 comes equipped with a mechanical shutter as well as the electronic shutter. Having been tested through 100,000 cycles of release to ensure high performance, the newly developed mechanical shutter unit is extremely compact, enabling it to be incorporated in the slim body of the camera ready for a variety of shooting occasions.
By setting silent photography, the electronic shutter is automatically selected, and the shutter and control sounds are muted – convenient for situations such as taking a picture of your baby sleeping.
Face priority to detect and capture faces
The camera automatically detects people's faces and tracks them in focus. Nikon 1 detects up to five faces and focuses on the one recognized to be the closest to the camera. This function has been improved for Nikon 1 V2 so that faces are detected even when they are small within the frame, and the exposure and white balance are adjusted to the closest face. This feature comes in very handy when taking group pictures or snapshots at a party.
A compact system camera that turns ordinary scenes into special moments
With a camera so compact, you might think that it could be a challenge to carry large, heavy lenses. However, Nikon 1 employs a new image sensor format "Nikon CX format" and "Nikon 1 mount" which make for an extremely compact and light set of camera body and lens, all the while providing superb performance with high-resolution, quality images and high-speed shooting functions.
- *With 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6, battery and memory card.
Metallic body with a hand grip
Nikon 1 V2 is encased in a sophisticated, compact body which has been designed in pursuit of beautiful simplicity. Complementing its robust features, the camera is designed with a front face crafted from magnesium alloy – material that is lightweight but strong.
With the newly added grip, comfortable holding is ensured.
Mode dial realises smooth and speedy selection
The mode dial offers you a selection of eight special shooting modes (auto/advanced movie mode/Motion Snapshot mode/best moment capture mode/P, S, A, M modes). Simply turn the dial and you can access the mode of your choice directly and easily. The feature button placed next to the mode dial lets you choose the settings within each mode in an easy-to-understand maneuver. Enjoy shooting unique images that express your creativity, right when you want to.

Built-in flash to expand your creative palette
Nikon 1 V2 has a built-in flash to support shooting in dimly lit environments. With a guide number of approx. 6.3/20.7 (m/ft, ISO 160, 20°C/68°F), it can cover the angle of view of a 10 mm lens (equivalent to 27 mm in 35mm format). In addition, support for i-TTL flash control increases exposure accuracy.
High-resolution Full HD video
Experience the quality of Full HD video (1920 x 1080) recorded by Nikon 1, and you are sure to be impressed by the high-quality images that surpass those of conventional camcoders. You can start recording by simply pressing the movie-record button with a similar feel to that of still-image shooting. Moreover, Nikon 1's high-performance phase-detection AF keeps the moving subject in sharp focus at all times.
Shoot original movies with ease – HD movie mode
You can choose the exposure mode from P, S, A or M for creative control in HD movie mode.
For instance, slow down the shutter speed to portray the smooth surface of a flowing stream of water, or choose the maximum aperture to shoot movies with a shallow depth of field. With the AF tracking moving subjects continuously, you can record a movie creatively in crystal-sharp focus. You can also shoot a still picture with an aspect ratio of 3:2 while recording a movie. After recording, you can edit the clips with Short Movie Creator to make a work of art that is 100% your own.
