Nikon 1 V2 Compact System Camera with 10-30mm & 30-110mm Lenses, HD 1080p, 14.2MP, 3” Screen, Black

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Built to travel, the Nikon 1 V2 is a lightweight fusion of simplicity and power. The advanced CMOS sensor captures exceptionally sharp 14.2 megapixel images in a variety of conditions, while stunning Full HD home videos are just a button-press away. A next generation dual processor even gives you faster response times to capture those once in a lifetime moments. As if that wasn’t enough, the 1 V2 also accepts a range of NIKKOR lenses that’ll take your creativity to another level.

Key benefits:

  • The 14.2 megapixel AF 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.
  • Stay in the shooting sweet spot all the time. Advanced hybrid autofocus combines Phase-Detection for shiny or moving subjects and Contrast Detect for stationary or poorly lit subjects.
  • Always gets the best shot with smart photo selection. It shoots up to 20 high-resolution images before and after you release the shutter, then saves your best five for you to choose from. Images are recommended based on facial expression, composition, and focus.
  • Use creative mode to apply filters and effects to still images before you shoot. Enhance the mood with soft filter and enjoy a world that’s always perfectly lit with night portrait.
  • Capture full-resolution photos while filming, without interrupting recording, and you can film in extreme slow motion for dramatic effect. Movies can be recorded in Full HD and the autofocus system makes it easy to capture great action scenes.
  • Capture photos the way you intend to with Live Image Control. Easily adjust settings and see the results in real time. Whether you want to freeze action or blur backgrounds to make subjects stand out, simply rotate the command dial and adjust the control bars that appear next to your image.
  • The wide viewing angle 3-inch LCD screen lets you see every detail of your snaps and movies. Navigation through saved images, menus and options is also a breeze.
  • 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’s 1-mount 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.
  • Add the separate Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1B and transfer images directly from your camera to any smartphone or tablet. Share moments with ease, view images on a larger screen, or even use the adapter to control the camera remotely via your device.

Includes: nylon neck strap, battery charger, rechargeable battery, Movie Creator software, USB cable, body cap.

Feeling creative?

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.
