Nikon has unveiled the newest camera in the Nikon 1 line, an ultra-fast mirrorless shooter that brings the company closer to the competition and lends credence to Nikon’s recent promise that it is still committed to the compact system camera (CSC) market.
Many of the official specs for the Nikon 1 V3 had already leaked ahead of tonight’s release. In fact, if you’ve kept your eye on the rumor sites, you’ve even seen pictures. But for those of you who haven’t kept up with the news, here are the official specs:
And here are some images and an intro video to go along with those specs:
As you can see, the camera also boasts a brand new design that makes the shooter look a bit more professional than previous 1 Series models.
Alongside the V3, Nikon has also released two new lenses — the $ 1,000 1 Nikkor VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 and the $ 300 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM — and a slick optional grip (pictured below) that can’t carry any additional power, but does give you extra grip, a front dial, shutter button and additional function button.
The V3, lenses and grip will all arrive in stores next month. The camera kit with 10-30mm lens, EVF and grip will cost you $ 1,200.
