Nikon 1 V3 is a Mirrorless Speed Freak with 20fps Continuous Shooting

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:

  • 18.4-megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor with no low-pass filter
  • Expeed 4a processor
  • 3-inch, 1.037M-dot 180-degree tiltable touchscreen LCD
  • Optional 2.359M-Dot hot shoe EVF
  • 6fps continuous shooting for up to 50 shots with mechanical shutter
  • 20fps continuous shooting with AF tracking — the world’s fastest — for up to 40 shots with electronic shutter
  • 60fps continuous shooting when focus is locked
  • Super-fast AF system with 171 total AF points (105 phase detect and 66 contrast detect)
  • 120fps slow-motion 720p video capability
  • Special eVR electronic stabilization in movie mode
  • Virtual horizon function
  • Built-in WiFi

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.
