Features List

Capture up to 60 frames per second

Capture up to 60 frames per second

The fastest Nikon 1 to date, the Nikon 1 V2 will shoot 15 frames per second with continuous autofocus. Capture 30 or 60 frames per second to ensure you never miss the action.

‘Slow view’ lets you choose the perfect shot

Capturing that one perfect moment can be tough. But not with the V2’s new “slow view” function. Just press the shutter-release button halfway and the V2 rapidly captures a series of 40 frames. While the shutter-release button is half-pressed, the camera shows you each frame in slow motion, so you can choose the best moment to save as a still image. Take the stress out of taking capturing the perfect photo with the Nikon 1 V2.

Capture the best shot without effort

Smart Photo Selector chooses the best photo for you

Smart Photo Selector chooses the best photo for you

The V2’s Smart Photo Selector takes the guess work out of getting the best shot every time. Just press the shutter-release button and the V2 captures a sequence of scenes before and after you press the button. Based on the image composition and motion, it automatically selects the best shot and four reserves so you can choose the best shot to save – great for when you want to ask someone to take a photo of you and your friends.

Shoot full (1080p) HD videos

Shoot full (1080p) HD videos

Combined with superfast autofocusing, the V2 lets you keep even a moving subject in sharp focus. Capture full resolution photos whilst you record Full (1080p) video for complete flexibility or get more creative with slow motion videos at 400 or 1200 fps.
