Nikon’s mirrorless cameras particularly those belonging to the 1 series will have a new member called V3. It is the successor of V2 with a compact interchangeable-lens design and remarkable features such as 1080p/60p video capability and an 18.4 megapixel CX format (1-inch) sensor. The CX format is smaller than those provided by rival competitors like Panasonic and Olympus.
In addition to the latest imaging chip and built-in WiFi, it also integrates V1’s features such as a maximum of 20fps coupled with autofocus and video recording in slow motion at 720p and to a maximum of 120fps. The focus points that this camera can provide can reach 171. The rest of its features and accessories include a 3-inch LCD with touch panel tilting. Just like its predecessors, the V3 is also a point-and-shoot camera provided as options via its electronic viewfinder.
It is also fitted with the Expeed 4A that allows the camera to do what big cameras are capable of like video recording and shooting at 20 fps. This new badboy comes with a 10-30mm lens and is pricier than its Olympus, Sony and Panasonic counterparts at $1,200. Despite the steep price, one needs to try the camera to experience the latest functionalities and determine for himself if the price is worth it.
