Nikon V1 Features


The Nikon V1 is the second of two cameras released under the Nikon 1 label.

Unlike the simpler Nikon J1, the V1 is designed with more advanced photographers in mind. Some of its additional features include a magnesium alloy frame (metal instead of plastic), high-resolution electronic viewfinder and an accessory port for the SB-N5 external flash and the GP-N100 GPS unit.

Both the J1 and V1 have an advanced autofocus system that is able to track moving subjects during video capture. Both cameras are also capable of capturing still images simultaneously with video.
