Nikon 1 V2 mirrorless camera announced

The Nikon 1 V2 mirrorless camera has been unveiled, complete with a 14.2-megapixel image sensor and an interchangeable lens.

After kicking off its mirrorless range with the Nikon J1 and Nikon V1 last year, the Nikon 1 V2 follows the Nikon J2 as part of the second wave. It faces some impressive rivals such as the highly regarded Sony NEX-7 and the forthcoming Canon EOS M.

The Nikon 1 V2 sports a number of improvements over the Nikon V1, including an improved 14.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with an ISO range of 160-6,400. There’s also an Expeed 3A image processor and an Advance Hybrid autofocus system, which allows you to shoot up to 15 frames-per-second while still tracking fast moving objects.

Perhaps more meaningful for those who have used the Nikon V1 is the Nikon 1 V2’s improved usability. Nikon has added an all-new Command Mode Dial, a built-in flash and a new ergonomic grip.

In addition, the Nikon 1 V2 has a 3-inch LCD display and a 1.4 million dot viewfinder on the back – both of which it shares with the Nikon V1.

The Nikon 1 V2 will go on sale on November 22 at a price of £800, which will include a 10-30mm twin lens pack. You’ll be able to throw in an additional 30-100mm lens for a total price of £970.
