High-resolution Full HD video

Experience the quality of Full HD video (1920 x 1080) recorded by Nikon 1, and you are sure to be impressed by the high-quality images that surpass those of conventional camcoders. You can start recording by simply pressing the movie-record button with a similar feel to that of still-image shooting. Moreover, Nikon 1's high-performance phase-detection AF keeps the moving subject in sharp focus at all times.

Shoot original movies with ease – HD movie mode

You can choose the exposure mode from P, S, A or M for creative control in HD movie mode.
For instance, slow down the shutter speed to portray the smooth surface of a flowing stream of water, or choose the maximum aperture to shoot movies with a shallow depth of field. With the AF tracking moving subjects continuously, you can record a movie creatively in crystal-sharp focus. You can also shoot a still picture with an aspect ratio of 3:2 while recording a movie. After recording, you can edit the clips with Short Movie Creator to make a work of art that is 100% your own.

Create an impressive movie in slow motion

Control the lapse of time and discover subtleties between the moments. With Nikon 1, you can record silent, slow-motion movies at 400/1200 fps and play them back at approx. 13.3 (400 fps) or 40 (1200 fps) times slower.

ME-1 Stereo Microphone for higher quality sound

You can record movies with a higher quality of sound if you attach the optional ME-1 Stereo Microphone to your Nikon 1 V2. It employs a wind screen and low-cut filter to reduce wind interference and other low-frequency noise to render clear, dynamic stereo sound.

Note: AS-N1000 Multi Accessory Port Adapter is required to use this microphone.
