Nikon 1 V2 mirrorless camera hands-on!

 

If you followed the launch of Nikon\'s J2 interchangeable-lens compact recently, then waking up to today\'s announcement of a higher-specced V2 probably won\'t come as a huge surprise. Nevertheless, whereas the J2 was frustratingly incremental compared...

If you\'ve been put off by the small sensors in Nikon\'s 1 System, then there\'s nothing to change your mind here. We\'re looking at a revamped but still tiny CX sensor, this time with the resolution bumped up to 14 megapixels (instead of 10) -- a move...

Hands-on with Nikon V2

 

We had a chance to get our hands on Nikon's latest 1 Series mirrorless camera - the 1 V2. It gains a 14MP sensor, built-in flash and more conventional control points than its predecessor. Here we give our first impressions of Nikon's smallest 'serious'...

Nikon 1 V2: Extreme makeover

 

While the Nikon 1 J2 has only minor updates from its little brother the J1, the Nikon 1 V2 really is version 2 of this interchangeable-lens camera.

Nikon 1 V2 Review

 

The Nikon 1 V2 is a compact system camera featuring a new 14.2-megapixel “CX” format sensor and the Nikon 1 lens mount. Boasting continuous shooting speeds of 15fps with continuous autofocus and 60fps with fixed-point autofocus, Full 1080p HD video...

Nikon have made some big changes to the original V1 to make this new model more appealing to keen enthusiasts, and in most regards they've succeed in making the new V2 a much more serious proposition. The new handgrip, shooting mode dial and control...

Nikon 1 V2 Preview

 

Departing radically from the Nikon 1 V1\'s original design, the V2 goes all out to leave the rather bland looks of the V1 behind while maintaining the family resemblance, with broad curves and a bulky industrial look. The end result is rather odd at...

Nikon 1 V2: Lab Test Results & Comments

 

Compared to the first generation of Nikon's compact system cameras, the V1, the design of the V2 has changed radically. Instead of a small body with minimized dimensions, it has attained extra girth, although we feel it has also acquired better...

Improved handling over its forerunner ; New sensor with higher resolution ; Electronic viewfinder with high resolution ; Creative filter and photo/movie effects

Missing swivel monitor ; Somewhat bulky design for a CSC camera

Nikon 1 V2

 

While Nikon improved the handling of their latest 1 series camera, image quality is tragically unchanged.

You’ve got to hand it to Nikon. Like several other review outlets, we were critical of the physical design of the J1 and V1 when they debuted. These were slippery, troublesome cameras, and in certain conditions that can really rob the shooting...

Nikon V2 review

 

Nikon V2 review: has enough changed in the V2 to warrant an upgrade over the Nikon 1 V1? Our testing team put Nikon's new CSC to the test.

Nikon 1 V2 - Still Fast, Handles Better

 

Coming one year after the Nikon 1 V1, the V2 is Nikon's answer to all the photographers who griped about the V1's handling. Do the new improvements make the V2 an attractive new camera to get for the holidays? Read on to find out.

Fast, dependable auto-focus ; Quick multiple frame-rates for action ; Improved grip and handling over V1 ; Increased image detail over V1

Image noise seen from low ISO settings ; Auto-focus hesitant in low-light ; Camera blacks out after shooting bursts ; Confusing Function digital menu
