Product Description

Color: Black | Style: with 10-100mm VR 1 NIKKOR Lens

Meet Nikon's sophisticated, enthusiast-oriented Nikon 1 V2, featuring a new 14MP sensor, a built-in flash, a newly-developed shutter unit, a generous-sized grip and a high-resolution electronic viewfinder. This, combined with the first-generation Nikon 1 V1's lightning-fast autofocus speed, shows that Nikon is bringing its MILC system to a new level. Let's take a closer look at the Nikon 1 V2. Nikon 1 V2 Key features: 14MP Nikon CX-format CMOS sensor ISO range 1600-6400 Built-in flash New Shutter, tested to 100,000 cycles 1,440k-dot electronic viewfinder Direct access to PASM exposure controls Smart Photo Selector Slow View (captures up to 40 full-resolution continuous shots) HD movies at 60 and 30fps at 60i, 60p, 30p frame rates Slow motion recording up to 1200 fps Speed claims The first generation Nikon 1 cameras boasted DSLR-speed autofocus and image lag times, and the Nikon 1 V2, thanks to a next-generation EXPEED 3A dual image processor, is said to be even faster. Nikon claims up to 15fps burst rates with continuous autofocus and up to 60fps with fixed-point autofocus. Hybrid AF combines phase-detection for high-speed movement and contrast-detection AF for low-light photography; the sensor instantly switches between 73 phase detection focus areas an 135 contrast-detect areas. The design of the camera is closer to a DSLR (or at least a traditionally-designed interchangeable-lens EVF) than previou

Customer Reviews

Build & Feel are strong and hefty, but still give the light tuck away concept.
Peter W. Coe
The V2 still has that greenish cast like all the recent N1 and DSLR cameras from Nikon; most people won't notice this.
Albie
It really feels and looks like a mini DLSR where as the J1 feels like an upgraded compact point and shoot.

To start with I do own the V1 and all the Nikon 1 lenses except for the 10-100 PD zoom. I just borrowed my friends V2 for the weekend and did some comparisons between the two to see if it would be worth upgrading to the new V2. These are only my initial impressions and only for still photography. I do not shoot video so I have no opinion on the video capabilities of this camera. I consider myself an advanced amateur when it comes to photography and have sold some of my work at local art shows and craft fairs. I use mainly a D3X and the D800 for my work but have come to enjoy the 1 series (it took awhile) for its light weight, compatibility with F mount lenses, and more than adequate image quality for those times when I do not want to carry a DSLR.

It seems that Nikon has not learned its lesson with the V1 and is still overpricing its top of the line 1 series cameras. Even with the $50 instant rebate the camera is seriously overpriced for what you are actually getting. At today's price of the V1; (Nikon is giving them away) of $299 there is no real reason to buy the V2. That difference in price is not getting you much more for the extra money that has to be spent; in fact you are giving up some features.
So what are you paying a premium price for compared to the V1:
Well you get:

An improved 14.2 MP sensor vs. a 10MP, not a big change in IQ but it is welcome. Base ISO has been increased to 160 vs. 100 from the V1. Just be aware the mechanical shutter has a maximum speed of 1/4000 of a second. If you shoot at large apertures this may present a problem in bright light. You may have to switch to the electronic shutter which has a maximum speed of 1/16,000 of a second.

I have multiple digital cameras, from point and shoots to travel zooms to super zooms to Nikon D7000. I also travel a lot, for business and some for pleasure. I've found I can get by these days with a travel zoom when I'm traveling by myself on business, but on vacations with my wife I want more...but I hate lugging around the D7000 and the big, bulky lenses. I've followed the mirrorless category of cameras for a while, but the micro 4/3rds class just didn't cut it for me because while the camera bodies were smaller than a D7000 or even D3200, the lenses are about the same size due to the sensors being similar in size. Sorry Sony NEX user, but this is the problem with that camera and other 4/3rds in my opinion. That meant going with a smaller sensor to get smaller lenses, but travel zooms are too small and that creates problems - especially with excessive megapixels (the smaller the sensor and the more megapixels, the greater the noise - even at low ISOs). So I was very interested in the Nikon 1 series. The sensor is between Nikon's DX and much smaller travel zoom/point and shoots, so it uses smaller lenses - but I still can switch lens like a DSLR (and number of Nikon 1 lenses is growing). The V2 limits itself to 14 megapixels, so with the larger sensor noise is much better than a travel zoom/point and shoot, though not quite that of DSLR (but I'm ok with trade-off for travel). The V2 is MUCH more user friendly than V1 or J1. I like the various shooting modes, and while it isn't perfect, it is a darn good camera and fun to shoot with. The charger is compact (plugs fold in), and the flash is decent. I like having option of a EVF for certain situations, like sunny days.Read more ›

Style Name: with 10-30mm VR 1 NIKKOR LensColor Name: Black
This camera marks my return to being a somewhat serious amateur shutter bug. I'm 63. Previous serious cameras have included a Nikon Ftn, F2s, Nikonos, and a Nikon FA which I still have. I have lost track of the many utilitarian digital snap shooter cameras that I've had over the past couple decades. Back in the day (mostly the 70's and early 80's) I had a few nice shots that were published or otherwise won awards, and even made a few bucks selling prints. So that should give you a notion of how to rate my comments and objectivity. I was no pro, but a very contented amateur that went to the first and third versions of the Nikon School (if they still have that seminar or something like it, I would recommend it to anyone).

I like the Nikon 1 v2 more than a little. It's convinced me that the investment in the pentaprism and mirror assemblies no longer add anything to the camera, including the weight needed to make it steady in the hands. That of course was the problem with small cameras (apologies to old Leica fans). There was something about the SLR design and weight that just worked well in the hands. Digital cameras until recently seemed to require the same general layout and feel of the old SLR's to work well in the hands. In my opinion, the v2 feels great. Yes it is a little smaller, but the Nikkor 1 lenses (I have 4) somehow compensate by being very nimble and smooth. My fingers do not feel squeezed onto the smaller control surfaces as I feared they might.

Ok, so it feels good in the hands, but can it take a decent pics on demand (within the limits of the user's abilities of course)? First, let's face it, the original Nikon F had some light leakage issues when pushing it in harsh light conditions.
