HD movies with advanced movie mode

Create a truly moving cinematic experience.

Creators of short videos will appreciate the versatility of Nikon 1 AW1. Just enable Advanced movie mode and you'll have access to programmed auto, shutter-priority auto, aperture-priority auto and manual settings, giving you the freedom to add a cinematic feel to special moments. Use a fast shutter speed to freeze the spray of seawater splashing over a boat, or open the aperture wide to add tasteful background blur to a tightly framed close up. When you return home, edit footage using bundled Short Movie Creator or Nikon Movie Editor software to produce entertaining movies complete with soundtracks and other elements.

Taking still images while recording a movie

The best of both worlds: Shoot fantastic photos while recording HD movies without skipping a frame.

Whether it's short footage of a casual get-together or a complete video log of your long-awaited vacation, record it all in stunning Full HD. Just press the movie record button and you're good to go. And if you happen to chance upon a scene that would also make a great photo, press the shutter-release button to capture a high-resolution photo. Movie recording is not affected and continues uninterrupted while the still image is shot and saved. In addition, photos employ the same camera settings in effect for the movie and come out looking just as beautiful.

Slow motion

Reveal the hidden beauty of subjects in motion.

There's nothing quite like the dynamic impact of a sensational slow-motion sequence. With Nikon 1 AW1 you can record up to three seconds of action at either 400 or 1200 fps then play back the footage at 30 fps. Discover beauty you never knew existed with slow motion.
