PhotoPlus Expo 2012: Nikon Intros 14.2-megapixel Nikon 1 V2 Flagship Compact System Camera
Nikon has officially taken the wraps off the new 14.2-megapixel Nikon 1 V2, the latest top-of-the-line model in its compact system camera line. The redesigned Nikon V2 looks almost completely different from its predecessor, the V1, resembling a stripped down DSLR except without, of course, the mirror box inside the camera, allowing it to be small and thin.
The V2 also features a bigger grip, a built-in flash, and a new Command Mode Dial.
The V2’s 14.2MP, CX-format (smaller than Micro Four Thirds but bigger than what’s in a point-and-shoot camera) CMOS sensor, is also new and the camera adds a new EXPEED 3A image processor, allowing it to shoot up to 15 frames per second with full autofocus tracking for moving subjects.
Nikon also introduced SB-N7, attachable speed light flash for the Nikon V2 this morning.
The Nikon 1 V2 camera with the 10-30mm kit lens goes on sale in late November 2012 for the $899. It’s available in black or white.
The SB-N7 flash goes on sale in January 2013 for $159.
