Freeze the perfect instant

Slow down the action and get the best of what's seen

The best moments are made (and missed) in an instant. But imagine being able to slow down a moment while it's happening—to see live action in slow motion. With Nikon 1 V2's amazing new Slow View mode, that's exactly what happens. See the world in slow motion through the viewfinder, then easily grab the shot you want. Combine that with Smart Photo Selector, which fires 20 shots with a single shutter press and selects the best five for you, and you've got every advantage for catching life's best moments.

Put your creativity in motion

Tell richer stories with Motion Snapshot and Advanced Movie Mode

Nikon 1's popular Motion Snapshot blends motion, stills and sound to capture the essence of a moment like never before. With a single press of the shutter button, Nikon 1 V2 captures a short slow-motion movie sequence plus a single defining still image. Those elements are merged into a unique 10-second expression that can easily be shared in .mov or .nms formats. Even add background music to set the mood of that special moment. For video enthusiasts, Nikon 1 V2 features a new Advanced Movie Mode. Maintain PSAM exposure control while recording 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound. Smoothly track your subjects like a pro, even as the lighting changes.

Create at the speed of life

Capture your world with unrivaled speed, precision and clarity

At the center of Nikon 1's success is its remarkable Advanced Hybrid Autofocus System offering both phase (73-point) and contrast-detection (135-point) autofocus. It zeroes in on subjects with such speed and precision, you'll never miss a shot. With Nikon 1 V2, you can harness that precision at a blazing fast 15 frames per second continuous shooting! When you divide one second of motion into 15 individual photos, you'll catch amazing views you've never seen. And every one of those photos will be exceptional, thanks to Nikon 1 V2's 14.2 megapixel CMOS sensor.

Use your smartphone to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend.

Take control of your shooting

When you want more control of Nikon 1 V2, everything you need is at your fingertips. Adjust key settings like ISO and White Balance with minimal button presses. Conveniently access PSAM modes right from the camera's mode dial. When you're in a PSAM mode, the new Command dial lets you quickly toggle between key settings for that specific mode—without taking your eye from the viewfinder.

See how your shots will look

Now when you're framing a shot, you can see exactly how your end-result photo will look. Live Image Control gives you a real-time preview of your image based on the current camera settings. Using the Command dial, you can adjust the contrast or brightness, blur the background, even show movement—all during preview. Once you've got the shot you want, simply press the shutter button and save it forever.

Sacrifice nothing for size

Among the smallest interchangeable lens cameras available, the Nikon 1 V2 gives up nothing for size. Its body grip, built-in flash and electronic viewfinder are familiar comforts to traditional shooters, while its exceptional speed, sleek, minimal design and ultra-high-resolution LCD display push the limits of small camera performance.

Nikon 1 V2 4.2 5 10 10
Overall a very competent camera I purchsed this camera with the specific goals that (1) it would take acceptable image quality , (2) the video would be very good, (3) it would take my existing Nikon lenses and (4) it would fit in a coat pocket. All the goals seem to have been met. I was pleasantly surprised at how tough the camera feels. It seems very robust and able to withstand the challenges of going into nature. The video controls have been greatly enhanced with the HD Video setting on the mode dial. I can move into video very easily with one click and my settings, manual aperture and shutter speed, are remembered. The video screen includes an exposure meter, which is very helpful. Not as good as a live view histogram but close enough. Image quality is very good though the files require some sharpening in post. (I have the sharpening turned way todwn in the camera and I shoot only in raw.) Of course, it isn't a D800, but that's not the point. Overall, I'm quite pleased. October 27, 2013
FT-1 V2 Powerhouse My back and neck hurts from years of lugging around heavy SLR/DSLR gear. The V2 looked ideal. And it was. I took it on a transatlantic cruise with multiple stops. Results were outstanding. However when I returned, my large inventory of AI/AIS lenses beckoned to me. I bought an FT-1 adapter. I used these lenses in aperture priority mode, fixed ISO. The V2 will meter and adjust shutter speed. This effectively simulates a Nikon F3. I shot some hummingbirds with the 180/2.8 ED AIS. Results were stunning. Next I tackled my 500/8 Mirror. Although not listed as compatible, the reason is the tripod mount on the 500/8 interferes with the FT-1 tripod mount. Simple matter to remove the lens tripod mount by removing two screws from the 500/8. Then you have a lightweight 1350mm f/8 lens that you can hand hold! Or use a tripod on the FT-1. At ISO 1600 results were excellent. A great nature rig that's got a V2 as a rear lens cap!! Another great use is with the 60/2.8 Micro-nikkor AIS. Macro shots demand manual focus anyway so this pair wins again. October 4, 2013
Looks small but acts big! Bought this camera because I didn't want to lug a large camera on a trip to Dublin, Ireland bought 1 V2 with 4 lens and flash and extra battery. Have a small backpack to store everything. I love the quality of the photos, they look as good as my D80 and its a lot less to lug around. I have carried it in my pocket on several trips. Just makes life much easier when traveling. I use the 1 V2 all the time. June 6, 2013
Loving it!!! I'm a fulltime pro and shoot the D3s and D3... I've been waiting for a camera like this to take out when I just want something more than a point and shoot but way less than a DSLR. This is a very light and discreet and CAPABLE camera if you use it right. I'm having no issue with the files at iso 1600 and even 3200. The focus is great and I love that you can adjust the power of the flash very easily as well. The quality of the viewfinder and screen is superb. You have to manage your expectations... This is not a D3 or a D4 or a D300... BUT given the size and the ease of use, I'd say it's a pretty cool camera!!! December 22, 2012
Amazing!!! I love, love, love this camera!! I am a mother of 2 small children and this camera is perfect! I've only had it for two days and already know how to use all of it great features. It is so easy to use! One of my favorite features is the ability to take video and pictures at the same time. This has always been the delima in the past. Do I want to video this moment or take pictures? Now I don't have to choose. My kids met Santa yesterday and I was able to catch the whole event on video and take great pictures too! I did also purchase the 18.5 mm f/1.8 lens which gives you great pictures in low light with soft buttery backgrounds. If you have fast moving kids and want to capture the best moments, this camera is for you!! It is totally worth the investment. December 16, 2012

Answer: 
I also asked the Pocketwizard people and they said:
"While the mirrorless cameras are definitely gaining in popularity, at this point we do not plan to make our radios compatible in TTL mode. We are keeping an eye on customer demand and if it is high enough, we may consider it. If it had a standard hot shoe, you could use it in Basic Trigger mode, but it appears to use the same specialized shoe the V1 uses."

Answer: 
There aren't any lenses in the current 1Nikkor line that have a minimum aperture smaller than f/16. In order to have any of the Nikon1 cameras go past f/16 you would need to use the FT-1 Mount adapter and an F-mount lens that has a wider aperture range. For a list of F-mount lenses compatible with the FT-1 mount for Nikon1 cameras go to http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans...

New 1Nikkor lenses are expected to be released in 2013 but final specifications of those lenses have yet to be released.

Answer: 
The lens minimum aperature varies depending on the type of lens that is attached. The lens that you have attached cannot close any further than F16 which is why the aperature on the J1 is not going beyond F16.

Answer: 
When using the FT1 adapter on the V2 the camera must be set to AF-S (the camera will not focus in other autofocus modes) and autofocus is only available with AF-S lenses. The only AF area mode available is Single-point and the camera focuses on the subject in the center focus area only. Face priority is not supported.

Answer: 
The operating environment for the Nikon1 V2 is 00 °C–40 °C (+32 °F–104 °F) with humidity at 85% or less (no condensation).

The Nikon1 V2 is not waterproof and may malfunction if exposed to high levels of humidity so it should be protected from snow. Extreme temperature change can cause condensation inside the camera body. When taking the camera to a very cold place, or from hot to cold, place it inside an airtight container such as a plastic bag and leave it inside the bag for awhile to expose the camera gradually to the temperature change.
