Nikon 1 S2 review

 

Unless you can find the Nikon 1 S2 at a ridiculously low price, we suggest you spend a little more money on stronger mirrorless cameras like Sony's A5000.

At $450, the Nikon 1 S2 seems like a good deal, but look beyond the price and you’ll see it is sacrificing a lot to save very little money. The camera has way too many compromises versus the Nikon J4 (which we weren’t especially thrilled with either)....

2015 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500

 

Interchangeable lens cameras come in all kinds of different shapes, sizes and prices, from the very reasonable to the eye-wateringly expensive. The around or less than $500 category is a place most first-time ILC buyers will likely find themselves. If...

Nikon 1 S2 mirrorless camera hits 20fps for $450

 

The latest in a line of sub-$500 ILC announcements this spring, Nikon's cheapest model certainly doesn't skimp on the performance specs.

Nikon 1 S2

 

The Nikon 1 S2 is a tiny mirrorless interchangeable lens camera that almost looks more like a toy than a serious camera. Unfortunately some of its features are more toy-ish than serious too. The S2's menu structure is such a mess that it makes this...

Very small and lightweight camera body ; Minimal shutter lag and shot-to-shot delay issues ; Continuous shot modes are extremely fast ; Image quality is good ; Can shoot in RAW or JPEG (but not both at the same time) ; Several choices of body colors ;...

Menu structure is confusing and poorly organized ; Smaller image sensor versus DSLRs ; Only can shoot in 3:2 aspect ratio ; No image stabilization option ; Lowest ISO setting available is ISO 200 ; Ergonomics could be better; no raised area to serve as...

Nikon 1 S2 Review

 

The Nikon 1 S2 is a new compact system camera featuring a 14-megapixel “CX” format sensor with no low-pass filter and the Nikon 1 lens mount. Boasting continuous shooting speeds of 20fps with continuous autofocus and 60fps with fixed-point autofocus,...

The Nikon 1 S2 is the new entry-level model in Nikon's compact system camera range, but it's actually a very capable camera that offers most of the same features as the mid-range J4 model at around £100 / $200 cheaper.

Nikon 1 S2 Review

 

Reviewed the compact Nikon 1 S2 - A mirrorless camera that can shoot at up to 60fps at full resolution!

Compact stylish body ; 2 year warranty ; High speed continuous shooting ; 20fps continuous shooting with AF tracking ; High speed video modes (albeit at low resolution) ; Good image quality and colour ; Very fast focus and shutter response ; Silent...

Little grip ; 11-27.5mm lens doesn't feature optical image stabilisation ; Prime lenses needed for best results ; Doesn't let you shoot RAW+JPEG at the same time ; Doesn't feature a panoramic shooting mode ; Difficult to view screen outdoors in sunlight

The Nikon 1 S2 (along with the Nikon 1 V3, and J4) is one of the fastest shooting cameras available currently, if not the fastest, offering 20fps continuous shooting with auto-focus, as well as 60fps continuous shooting with fixed focus. This makes it...
