Don't you think the best moments in your life deserve to be captured in a unique and special way?
With Motion Snapshot, you can capture that special moment as a still image and as a 1-second movie vignette when you press down on the shutter-release button.
Then the camera stretches the movie vignette to create a 2.5-second slow motion movie and combines it with the still image and one of the 4 tunes available.
So why not preserve your heartfelt moments as a truly extraordinary short movie.
Taking great photographs has never been easier.
When you start to press down on the shutter-release button, the camera, set to the Smart Photo Selector mode, instantly begins recording 20 images at high speed.
Then it automatically stores 5 great shots and selects the best one out of the 5.
All you have to do is point and shoot.
You will never miss another perfect moment ever again.
Some AFs are better at taking certain shots than others.
That is why Nikon 1 is equipped with both a "focal plane phase-detection AF" superb for shooting fast action and a "contrast-detect AF" excellent for capturing subtle details in poorly lit areas.
Nikon 1’s advanced hybrid AF system intelligently selects the AF that best suits the scene and unfailingly delivers crisp, sharp images.
Nikon 1 also boasts a wide coverage of 73 points(*1) (41 focus areas in auto-area AF), which catches the subject with exceptional accuracy, significantly reducing blurry shots.
Nikon 1 offers continuous shooting at unprecedented speeds.
In AF-S mode optimal for shooting stationary subjects, Nikon 1 realizes a continuous shooting speed of 60fps. And in AF-A mode, Nikon 1’s advanced autofocus technology constantly tracks the subject and captures an impressive series of sharp images at 10 fps. With this innovative feature, you can seamlessly capture special moments of even the most difficult shots – such as energetic children at play, action-packed scenes from a sporting event, and wildlife in motion. You may discover a new artistic point of view that you never knew existed before.
Drawing on years of advancing its proprietary technologies, Nikon has developed a truly innovative, advanced interchangeable-lens digital camera system that strikes a perfect balance between compact size, high speed, and impeccable image quality.
Nikon 1 features a powerful, revolutionary new CX format CMOS sensor, a newly developed Nikon 1 mount, and EXPEED 3, the new high-speed image processing engine specifically designed for the Nikon 1.
Together they bring to life state-of-the-art performance in an amazingly small, lightweight body.
If you could capture minute details of light and shadow in high contrast environment, you would have more opportunities to capture remarkable images without disappointing.
Nikon's Active D-Lighting optimizes the balance of high contrast scenes to restore details often lost under strong lighting, allowing you to capture scenes with optimal results.
Matrix metering settings enable you to adjust the exposure to produce natural results for every situation and every subject. By controlling overexposure and preserving subtle features of underexposed areas, Active D-Lighting will create well-balanced results.
You cannot only capture your special moments, but you can also transform the look and feel of your images, just as you imagine them. Picture Control is Nikon's unique system that enables you to flexibly control and adjust the image settings to suit your preferences. You can choose from among 6 different settings: Vivid, Monochrome, Neutral, Standard, Landscape, and Portrait. With these settings, you can sharpen an image by emphasizing the silhouette, or create a more vivid image by adjusting the saturation.
With ViewNX 2, you can also fine-tune your images even after they have been shot to match exactly what you envision. With simple settings and operation, Nikon's Picture Control will let you transform your images effortlessly and give you greater creative freedom.
