Nikon 1 Series V2 revealed, succeeds V1 mirrorless camera

updated 05:50 am EDT, Wed October 24, 2012

New 1 Nikkor lenses also announced

Nikon has announced the successor to the V1 mirrorless 1 System camera. The V2 uses an upgraded 14.2-megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor with a light sensitivity of between 160 and 640 ISO. An Expeed 3A image processor is aided by the Advance Hybrid Auto Focus system, which can switch between a 73-point phase detection and a 135-point contrast-detect AF system.

Housed in a magnesium body, the camera has a 3-inch LCD display on the rear as well as a 1.4 million dot electronic viewfinder. Capable of a 15-frames per second shooting speed with a continuous autofocus, and up to 60 fps with a fixed-point AF for up to 40 frames, it is also capable of recording full HD movies at 60 and 30fps, and at 60i, 60p, and 30p frame rates. At lower resolutions, the shutter speed ramps up tremendously, hitting 400fps at 640x240 resolution, and 1,200fps at 320x120 for a maximum of five seconds.

The Nikon 1 V2 will cost $900 when packaged with a 10-30mm kit lens when it becomes available in late November.

Nikon also mentioned three new 1 Nikkor interchangeable lenses it is adding to the range. A 32mm medium-telephoto fixed focal length lens with a fast maximum aperture of f/1.2, a 6.7-13mm f3.5-5.6 ultra wide-angle zoom lens with a 100-degree angle of view, and a compact 10-100mm f/4-5/6 lens with 10x zoom will be released in the future, most likely at the start of 2013, though a price has yet to be determined.
