Capture more perfect moments

Nikon 1 Performance Cameras help you turn fleeting moments into stunning images. With a blazing-fast Advanced Hybrid Autofocus System and the world's fastest continuous shooting frame rate (approx. 20 FPS with AF*), these cameras freeze action in its tracks, while innovative features like Slow View Mode and Smart Photo Selector ensure a great shot never slips by.

Wi-Fi® photo sharing and camera control

Using V3’s built-in Wi-Fi capability, the photos you take can instantly appear on a compatible smartphone or tablet** for easy sharing—by email or text message, posting on your favorite site and more. You can even use a smartphone or tablet to take photos with the camera—perfect for self portraits and group shots that actually include you!

Take control

Adjust important camera settings like ISO and White Balance with minimal button presses. Conveniently access PSAM exposure modes right from the camera’s mode dial.

Expand your capabilities

Add a Nikon 1 Speedlight and take control of the lighting around you, a GPS module for geotagging your shots, even an external stereo microphone for cinematic sound in your videos.

Sacrifice nothing for size

Despite such advanced features and capabilities, Nikon 1 Performance Cameras are among the smallest interchangeable lens cameras available. Take your camera everywhere.

Take your creativity beyond the still photo

Work with both high resolution photos and Full HD 1080p videos to bring even more creative expression to life. Start recording at the touch of a button. See a composition you'd like as a still? Hit the shutter. Autofocus keeps everything in focus, even when working double duty to record movies and stills. Nikon's unique Motion Snapshot captures the essence of a moment with a blend of motion, photography and sound. Create rich cinematic stories that dazzle.
