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.
