Technology’s advancements in a short period of time has had an amazing impact on the camera industry. Years ago, people were very concerned when selecting cameras, but today, different brands introduce a wide range of cameras series by adding different models in short span of time. Likewise, the Nikon 1 V-series introduced the latest model NIKON1 V2 offering exchangeable lenses. By structure, it has a professional look with broad edges; it can be found in black and colors.

True to the hype, it is very fast and reliable, rendering stunning shots. It has a unique style of taking 20 shots at a time with a single click. It includes different modes to perform different tasks.

  • Slow-Mode:

When in slow-mode, the user presses half way on the shutter button to capture an image; its unique functionality works by slowly capturing the image.

  • Build Up Motion Snapshot Mode:

After taking consumer reviews into account, Nikon enhanced this feature. Before the V2, Nikon 1 shot 60p and at 24 frames/ sec, played it back giving a playback time of 2.5 seconds. In response to requests for improvement, Nikon enhanced it by 1.6 seconds, giving it a playback of 4 seconds at 24fps.

  • HDR Mode:

It also includes HDR mode which aggregates two sequential shots into one huge quality image.

  • Movie Mode:

It has the ability to capture a full image without disturbing the movie. The movie mode has 1080 60i & 1080 30 frames/sec. 20 minutes are restricted for 1080 and 720p can go onwards to 29 minutes.


It’s a handsome camera with eye catching features, coming in both black and white. It has a small body with very stable grip, congenital flash, image sensor of CX-format and many more notable features.

Range of Sensitivity:

For V1, the ISO 100 – ISO 3200 by 6400 and for V2 it is ISO 160 & ISO 6400.

Both the V1 and V2 have the ability of 73 point phase-detection and 135 area-contrast AF.

Both versions have stereo mic inputs. The video capability of V1 is 1080/60i/30 frames/sec., 720/60 frames/sec. H.264 MPEG-4 fast time MOV. and for V2 1080/30p, 720/60p H.264 MPEG-4 fast Time MOV.

There are many more specifications which differentiate V2 from V1 like high speed USB, multi luxury ports, a rechargeable battery of 1 EN-EL21 Li-ion and so on.

Nikon 1 V2 is such a remarkable camera possessing a line-up of enhancements over the previous model in the series.
