Nikon 1 S1 Compact System Camera with 11-27.5mm Lens, HD 1080p, 10.1MP, 3” LCD Screen, Black
Ultra portable and simple to operate, the Nikon 1 S1 is ready to take with you anywhere. The advanced CMOS sensor captures exceptionally sharp images in a variety of conditions, while stunning Full HD home videos are just a button-press away. As if that wasn’t enough, the 1 S1 also accepts a whole family of NIKKOR lenses for ultimate creativity.
The included 11-27.5mm lens even gives you the versatility to shoot anything from wide-angle landscapes to detailed portraits straight out of the box.
- The 10.1-megapixel CX CMOS sensor focuses with the speed and accuracy that you might expect from a DSLR. Combined with the powerful EXPEED 3A image processor, you’ll have sharper photographs as well as the ability to capture those candid moments as they happen.
- The Nikon 1 S1 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 S1 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.
- Get 15 sharp autofocused images from 1 second of action. When your subject is in motion, continuous shooting mode works with the camera's phase-detection AF to track movement and keep the subject in focus. The moment you press the shutter-release button, the camera captures razor-sharp images at 15 frames per second (fps). The Nikon 1 S1's continuous shooting mode can shoot even faster when the subject is stationary.
- The Nikon 1 S1 will start shooting as soon as you half-press the shutter-release button and it will continue shooting for a few moments after you release the button. In this mode, the camera records up to 15 frames and then automatically selects either your five best shots or first best shot.
- You can make a one-of-a-kind movie by combining Motion Snapshots, still images, and movies together. Simply select the files of your choice and play them one after another without any complex editing.
- Operate easily and intuitively using the simple GUI (Graphic User Interface). It boasts a rotating multi selector on the screen that lets you choose the shooting mode of your choice and further options of the feature menu.
- Shoot Full HD movies easily. While shooting a movie, you can also capture a beautiful still image any time by simply pressing the shutter-release button - your movie will continue to record seamlessly. In advanced movie mode, you can shoot Full HD movies in any exposure mode: programmed auto, shutter-priority auto, aperture-priority auto, or manual.
- Face-priority technology allows you to take photos at special events without fuss.The camera automatically recognises and focuses on the subject's face, following them wherever they move. Able to detect a maximum of five faces at a time, it's an extremely convenient function when taking photos at memorable events and parties.
- A built-in flash offers extra light when you need it. Handy for indoor shots or to soften images when the sun is behind your subject. Designed at the same time as the camera, it enables perfectly exposed images.
- Nikon’s separate FT1 mount adapter attaches to the camera to let you use a NIKKOR SLR lens. Trying out different lenses is a great way to experiment with how you shoot a scene, and if you use AF-S and AF-I NIKKOR lenses, you can still make full use of the Nikon 1 autofocus system.
- Includes body cap, battery, charger, strap, USB cable and Movie Creator Software.
Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
