Nikon presents the new version of their mirrorless camera, the white Nikon 1 V2 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 and 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Lens Kit. Just like the previous V1, it offers versatility without the bulk and weight of a DSLR--a lightweight, interchangeable-lens digital camera.

The V2 has a new, higher-resolution 14.2MP 13.2 x 8.8mm CMOS sensor. The Advanced Hybrid Autofocus System provides both phase (73-point) and contrast-detection (135-point) autofocus for much faster focusing and shooting at up to 60 frames per second (with AF locked). Without AF locked, maximum continuous shooting speed is 15fps.

The V2 captures stills in JPEG and RAW and video in the MOV format, with H.264/MPEG-4 compression. Integrated tools include a 3.0" LCD display and a 100% view electronic viewfinder with diopter adjustments. Command and feature buttons make the V2 very easy to use. 

Motion Snapshot mode captures a succession of images with just one click. The V2 has impressive low light capabilities with a wide ISO range of 160-6400. Smart Photo Selector captures 20 shots with one press of the shutter button, and then selects the five best for you.

With the optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter, you can wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or other compatible Wi-Fi enabled device. Use your smartphone to instantly upload images to the Internet or email them to friends, family and coworkers. Install Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility Android- or iOS-powered app to gain the ability to remotely control the Nikon 1 V2--see what your camera sees and fire off shots right from your smart device.

The bundled 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm (35mm equivalent: 27-81mm) f/3.5-5.6 lens is a CX-format standard 3x zoom lens. Compact (2.3 x 1.7" / 5.8 x 4.3 cm) and lightweight (4.1 oz / 116 g), the lens has Vibration Reduction (VR) to combat the effects of camera shake. Its silent stepping AF motor (STM) is ideal for shooting video. The lens' angle of view ranges from 29.4° to 77°, and its minimum focus distance is 7.87" (20 cm). It has a 40.5mm filter diameter. The 10-30mm is a versatile lens for applications ranging from wide-angle landscapes to tight portrait shots. Three aspherical lens elements ensure high image quality, even at the widest aperture settings. The 10-30mm zoom range enables excellent capture of fine detail at any focal length. Internal Focusing / IF technology enables the compact, lightweight construction, as well as a close focusing distance. A multi-layer lens coating helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level.

Also included is the 3.6x zoom 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm (35mm equivalent: 81-297mm) f/3.8-5.6 lens. This lens is ideal for isolating subjects from the background with clarity, and also has Internal Focusing (IF) to maintain a compact size--even when using the zoom. It also has Vibration Reduction (VR) to combat the effects of camera shake. Its telephoto coverage makes it great for a wide array of scene types, from sports to portraits. Enjoy superior sharpness and color correction--even at the widest aperture. Nikon's Super Integrated Coating helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level, and also assists in the creation of superior color balance and reproduction. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass reduces chromatic aberration to provide improved sharpness and color correction. The angle of view ranges from 8.2° to 29.4°, the minimum focusing distance is 3.3' (1.0m), and the filter size is 40.5mm.

PSAM Modes Right On The Mode Dial
Take control of your exposure mode right from the Command Dial--you won't even have to take your eye off the viewfinder. Complete creative control is yours with PSAM modes accessible right from the Mode Dial, a built-in pop-up flash with flash-ready indicator, full size i-TTL hot shoe, and comfortable camera grip.
Enhanced Motion Snapshot
Blend motion, stills and sound to capture the essence of a moment. With a single press of the shutter, the V2 captures a short slow-motion movie sequence plus a single defining still image, then merges those elements into a unique 10-second expression that you can easily share in .mov or .nms file formats. Even add background music to set the mood.
Best Moment Capture Mode - Slow View
See the world in slow motion through the viewfinder, then grab exactly the shot you want with the new Slow View. Just press the shutter button halfway, and watch live action in slow motion (up to 40 frames slowed down from 1.33 to 6.67 seconds).
Best Moment Capture Mode - Smart Photo Selector
Captures 20 shots with a single press of the shutter button, then selects the five best for you.
Live Image Control
See how an end-result photo will look before you shoot it with Live Image Control. This feature gives you a real-time preview of your image based on the current camera settings. Play with different effects, filters, exposure and depth-of-field, and see a preview of how the changes will affect your image. When you're ready, just press the shutter button and you've got precisely the shot you want.
Extend Your Creativity: Simultaneously Capture Full HD (1080p) Movies and Photos
Work with both high resolution photos and Full HD (1080p) movies to bring even more creative expression to life. Start recording at the touch of a button. See a moment you'd like as a still? Hit the shutter. Autofocus keeps everything in focus, even when working double duty to record movies and photograph stills. Elevate production with the addition of varied frame rates in 30/60/400/1200fps. Don't be hindered by working in just one mode - Nikon 1 flexibility gives you more. The Advanced Movie Mode lets you maintain PSAM exposure control while recording those 1080 HD videos. Track your subjects with ease, even as lighting changes. Capture stereo sound to accompany your video via the built-in stereo microphone with adjustable sensitivity. You can also add the optional external ME-1 stereo microphone with the AS-N1000 Multi Accessory Port Adapter (not included).

With the electronic shutter, you can capture up to a fast 60fps at full-resolution. Other available speeds include 5, 15, or 30fps. Using single AF or manual focus, S Shutter-priority auto or M Manual exposure mode, a shutter speed of 1/250 sec or faster, and other settings at default values, you can shoot at up to 5fps.
Electronic Viewfinder

      Comments about 1 V2 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 and 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Lens Kit (Black):

      I got this non-SLR because I do theatre photography and must avoid the annoyance of shutter and mirror noise lest the audience rise up in anger and eject me from the house. The camera is deadly silent and certainly fits the bill for my purposes. That said, it also provides a very light yet ergonomic package for anyone who wishes to have the features of an SLR with half the size and weight. The smaller sensor is not on a par with my D-800, but the electronics seem to compensate, and the results are quite good. One probably would not want to enlarge beyond 11x14, and the handling of the camera might pose a problem for very large hands. But, all in all, the best small camera I have ever used.

      Great lightweight camera

      By Mel

      from Texas

      Comments about 1 V2 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 and 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Lens Kit (Black):

      I needed a lighter set up after my D700 and lenses started adding to my back problems. I enjoy hiking, and my current equipment is just too heavy now. This little camera and the 2 lenses are perfect.
      I'm happy with the image quality, I only wish it came with a circular polorizer and extra battery. That will be my next purchase.
      It's easy to figure out where menu items are, use was easy for me.

        Just the right size for vacation and local adventures. The 10-30mm and 30-110mm lenses offer the options we need for family, nature and creative shots. Great help from B&H. We could have purchased a full DSLR but opted for a smaller camera. Added the flash and other items to round out the complete package.

          Comments about 1 V2 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 and 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Lens Kit (White):

          I bought this camera in substitution of a Nikon 1 J3, to be used in travel situations due to its reduced weight/size and the overall quality of the pictures and build of these cameras. The grip of the 1 J3 wasn't good at all and it lacked an electronic viewfinder, which were corrected in the 1 V2, and both these additions are excellent. Although I don't have a final opinion on the matter, apparently the battery life also was improved. On the other hand, the Easy Panorama function of the 1 J3, which I liked very much, was removed from the 1 V2. Recently I acquired a FT1 adapter to be used with other F Nikkor lenses I have, and it works perfectly. The manual focus could be better, though.

            This is the best digital camera I have owned. I had a Sony mirrorless and it was poorly made, the metering was meh and the touch screen hard to see into. This camera is the opposite. Solid, the best metering on auto, great live motion capture. Unbelievable video and audio.

            I use the camera for both business and pleasure and love it. The battery lasts, the resolution is amazing and the resulting color is beyond description!

            I love this camera!

                Comments about 1 V2 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 and 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Lens Kit (White):

                I am an amateur photographer that has learned a great deal by trial and error. I wanted a light camera with speed capable of capturing photos of our local raptors on the wing and the lightning fast moves of my niece. While many hardcore Nikon users were unimpressed by a mirrorless camera, let alone something as small as this one, a few more open minded bloggers raved about the fps speed and the film-like quality of the images. After a week or so of reading and price shopping, I decided that the price point for the fps speed was favorable (comparable fps on an SLR came at thousands of dollars more in price). I am extremely happy with my purchase. The quality of my images, ease of use, size, and NO LAG are wonderful. Great buy.

                    Comments about 1 V2 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 and 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Lens Kit (White):

                    It was a hard decision V1 or V2. Based on looks and so many improvements, despite the higher price, I went with the V2 and am elated with the camera. The camera feels VERY solid and stable. Every time I pick it up, there is something new to be found. 14MP pictures are awesome. The viewfinder (which only comes on when your eye is looking through it) comes in very handy especially in bright light. The oversize battery does not seem to run out of energy. There are so many creative touches to the camera, that the book does not do it justice. I shot professionally with 35mm and an RB67, and the V2 does in inexperienced hands what I could have done professionally. Sometimes the shot is a fraction too early or late. The V2 compensates and records multiple shots - play back the series and save the best one. It makes timing look awesome. The 2 lenses cover all needs from 27mm to 300mm, and the package together is lighter than a D5200 with the standard lens. Another nice feature, the filter size is 40.5mm - the same for both lens, so you can save on special effects. Storage is immense. With a 16MB card, I can get 3,200 4MP pictures.The ONLY drawback is in the documentation. I'm a visual person and reading the 236 page manual is as painful as it gets (I got to page 40 before falling asleep the first time). I wish NIKON would have made and included an instructional video explaining the functions of the camera in lieu of the book. I wrote to them, and none is planned. That is a shame because the camera can do so many things. This looks like a long term commitment - and I'm happy!

                    Nikon's new v2 improves on the V1 in several respects, including improved controls, faster frame rate, a built-in flash and a useful grip.
