Freeze the perfect instant

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.

Create at the speed of life

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.

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.

Put your creativity in motion

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.

Conveniently share with Wi-Fi connectivity

Connect the optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter to the Nikon 1 V2 and wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi enabled device±. Use your smartphone to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend. Install Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility Android™- or iOS-powered app and remotely control the Nikon 1 V2—see what the camera sees from your smartphone or tablet and fire off shots!

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.

Build your ultimate camera system

Enhance your creativity and capabilities with a growing lineup of superior 1 NIKKOR lenses and Nikon 1 accessories. The Nikon 1 V2 includes an accessory hotshoe port, so you can add a Nikon 1 Speedlight and discover the power of Nikon's creative lighting system, a GPS module for adding location data to photos, an external stereo microphone and more.
