New Proposal of Movies and Still Images

Advanced hybrid AF system

Nikon 1 is equipped with both a "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 sharp images with high-speed and high-accuracy. Nikon 1 also boasts a wide coverage of 73 focus areas (41 focus areas in auto-area AF), which can track even a fast-moving subject and quickly capture it in focus.

Track the moving subject and capture a stunningly sharp image in an eternity of split second.

High-speed continuous shooting:
  • - approx. 10 fps [continuous AF]
  • - approx. 60 fps [focus and exposure for the first frame fixed]
Quickly follows the moving subject in focus when recording movies.
With this innovative feature, you can seamlessly capture even quite difficult shots - such as energetic children at play, action-packed scenes from a sporting event, and wildlife in motion. With Nikon 1, you may be able to capture expressions and scenes you never knew existed before.
  • *Nikon 1 J1/J2 number of continuous shooting frames: Around 13 frames at shooting speed of 10 fps; around 12 frames if shooting speed is set at 30 fps or 60 fps.
  • *Nikon 1 V1 number of continuous shooting frames: Around 34 frames at shooting speed of 10 fps; around 30 frames if shooting speed is set at 30 fps or 60 fps.

Taking photos during Full HD movie recording.
