    Witness the revolutionary new Nikon 1 System

    A breakthrough in technology and design

    Capture every moment of an incredible life with an evolution in imaging technology. At the heart of Nikon 1 is EXPEED 3, a culmination of years of dedication to advancing digital imaging technologies. Witness outstanding system performance, high-speed dual image processors, state-of-the-art focal-plane phase detection auto focus and the fastest data transfer rates. Superior image quality, tone reproduction, advanced noise reduction, and an ability to create a whole new type of image are all delivered with the new Nikon 1.

    Focus without hesitation

    Advanced hybrid AF puts the focus in your control

    Your camera goes with you everywhere since moments worth sharing can happen at any instant. Nikon 1 V1 delivers an amazing 10 fps speed in autofocus and 60 fps in manual mode, courtesy of a unique combination of contrast and focal plane phase detect autofocus. Don't let your creativity be hindered by slow focus speed. Even fast moving action is rendered with amazing clarity—thanks to an incredible 73 point AF array continuously working to ensure everything is sharp and clear.

    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 30/60/400/1200 fps. Don't be hindered by working in just one mode—Nikon 1 flexibility gives you more.

    Only the best photo returned

    Let the camera do the work with Smart Photo Selector

    Always producing, always looking to frame a shot to perfection? What if there was a camera that could do the thinking for you—working to return a photo with optimal exposure, subjects in frame, clarity and focus, even eyes open? For times when you prefer to just be in the moment and let the camera do the work, move the dial to Smart Photo Selector. You find the best moment. Nikon 1 V1 will capture it.

    1 NIKKOR Lenses

    Compact, light, high performance optics

    Express quality with the revolutionary new 1 NIKKOR lens system. Don't be limited by a single fixed focal length—select from a growing selection of lenses that incorporate Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR) technology for blur-free images. Aspherical elements keep lenses compact while maintaining high quality. A silent stepping motor (STM) keeps autofocusing quiet—especially during movie recording. Compactness brings portability, whether using the single focal length 10mm or the 30-110mm telephoto. 1 NIKKOR extends a heritage of precision symbolized by durability, superior image quality and optical excellence.

    Low light

    An advanced innovative Nikon super high-speed AF CMOS imaging sensor, wide ISO range and option to select the best lens for the job gives you even more control over the light. Produce amazing photos in all those moody environments. Tap only ambient light and open the most artistic doors to photographing on the dance floor, nabbing dramatic sunsets and candlelit moments. For extended range, attach the 1 Nikon Speedlight for fill flash and more.

    Electronic viewfinder

    Accustomed to framing your images with a viewfinder? The Nikon 1 gives photographers the option to work with flexibility—using either the 1,440,000 -dot (SVGA) electronic viewfinder (EVF) or the large high resolution, 921,000-dot (VGA) LCD panel with 100 percent view. See every one of your creations rendered clearly on the high contrast viewfinder. The camera's eye sensor allows you to toggle between EVF and LCD views by placing your eye to the EVF. A Diopter adjustment is available, as well.

    EXPEED 3 Processor

    EXPEED 3 marks the culmination of years of dedication to advancing digital imaging technologies. At the heart of Nikon 1 is EXPEED 3, with dual image processors, to deliver outstanding system performance, high-speed processing, state-of-the-art phase detection autofocus and the fastest data transfer rates. Witness outstanding image quality, tone reproduction and advanced autofocus at unprecedented speeds.

    Intuitive simplicity

    Easy access to advanced features are hallmarks of the Nikon 1 system. From the ultra intuitive command and features buttons, easy-to-understand menu and fast lens mount, you'll be expressing thoughts and visions as never before. Even advanced features for photos and movies can be created with one-click ease.

    LCD monitor

    Check your creativity: frame and share your creations on the large and sharp 3.0-inch LCD color display. An ultra-high resolution VGA screen featuring 921,000-dots shows every detail to precision. An anti-glare coating renders easy viewing of photos and HD movies, even outdoors.


    For instances where available light is not enough to properly illuminate subjects, or when special lighting effects are desired, use the optional Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speedlight. Plug this compact device into the i-TTL hot shoe. Angle the device up, down, left or right and bounce light to your creative advantage. No batteries are required to power this device.
