The Nikon 1 V3 has just been announced, where this is the most recent addition to the V series of Nikon 1 advanced cameras that boast of interchangeable lenses, allowing avid shutterbugs to be able to work on new forms of imaging expression. It is a sequel to the Nikon 1 V2 that was released in October 2012. Not only that, Nikon has also rolled out the brand new 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM, which is a normal zoom lens that is compatible with the CX format, where it will cover the 10-30mm range of focal lengths. The 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM also holds the current record of being the world’s lightest interchangeable lens that is equipped with a power-drive zoom function, apart from being the world’s first interchangeable lens that is equipped with power-drive zoom to make use of an electrically controlled lens cover.


You will find the Nikon 1 V3 to be compact and lightweight in nature, where it delivers performance that can track a moving subject which exceeds that of digital SLR cameras. Apart from that, you ought to be able to shoot picture perfect images that have superior sharpness and definition, all the while enjoying an operational feel that is similar to that of a digital SLR camera.

I suppose the innards are what would attract many people. For instance, it packs an 18.4MP sensor, built-in WiFi connectivity, 1080/60p video recording capability, a new image processing chip, being able to shoot stills continuously at up to 20fps with autofocus, perform 720p slow motion video recording at up to 120fps, and boasts of a touch-panel tilting 3-inch LCD display to boot. Those who are interested in a full kit with camera, 10-30mm lens, viewfinder and grip will be able to pick it up next month for $1,200 a pop. [Press Release]
