Nikon 1 J1
with Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6, 10mm f/2.8
, and the 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 lens in white
are Nikon 1 series high-speed [1 ] mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras with 60 frames per second (fps) continuous shooting speed, using Nikon 1-mount lenses and announced on 21 September 2011. The series currently includes [2 ] Nikon 1 V1, J1, J2, and [3 ] S1 with a 10-megapixel image sensor, the V2, J3 and AW1 with a 14- megapixel image sensor and further increased autofocus speed to 15 frames per second (fps), and the [4 ] 1 V3, J4 with a new 18-megapixel image sensor, further increased — again world’s fastest — autofocus speed to 20 fps, 120 fps HD slow-motion at 1280 x 720 and 1080/60p. The J5 model added a 20.8MP sensor in 2015 and kept most other technical specifications the same as the J4 model. [5 ]
At the time of announcement,
Nikon claimed that it features the world's fastest autofocus, with 10 fps—even during videos—based on hybrid autofocus (phase detection/contrast-detect AF with AF-assist illuminator), as well as the world's fastest continuous shooting speed (60 fps) among all cameras with interchangeable lenses. [6 ] Slow-motion movies can be captured in up to 1200 fps with reduced resolution. Its inbuilt intervalometer enables time-lapse photography.
CX sensor considerably increases the depth of field by 2.90 stops (2.7 times crop factor) compared to a 35mm FX camera at the same angle of view and f-number.
New technologies [ edit ]
Nikon 1-mount and F-mount adapter FT1 enabling the use of all F-mount lenses especially with integrated autofocus motor. The FT1 adapter mounts and meters with all AI-P, AF, AF-S, D and G lenses and compatibles providing autofocus with all lenses with integrated autofocus motor. It further mounts Pre-AI, AI, AI-S and E lenses without metering as well as lenses which jut out the F-mount (needing mirror lock-up on cameras with mirror). Although not recommended, [14 ] it is used with [15 ] teleconverters for extreme telephotos. [16 ] [17 ] Lenses featuring Rear Focusing (RF) system with reduced
moving masses and world's fastest extremely quiet Voice Coil motors (VCM) or Stepping (STM) motors to speed-up autofocus. 3-Speed silent Power-Drive motor zoom in the Nikkor VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-Zoom optimized for shooting HD movies.
Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-Zoom integrates a high amount of technologies: High number of 21 elements including 1 High Refractive Index (HRI, >2), 3 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and 2 aspherical lenses, Super Integrated Coating (SIC), internal focusing (IF) with world's fastest quiet Voice Coil motor, 3-speed silent PD-Zoom, Vibration Reduction (VR II), retractable lens mechanism and 7 rounded diaphragm blades. [19 ] [20 ] Together with the [21 ] Canon EF 28-300mm lens it is the only current superzoom with 20 elements or more. Fast
electronic shutter (1/16 000) or additional electronically controlled mechanical focal-plane shutter. The V1 incorporates a 'multi accessory port' currently used for dedicated 1 Series flash and
GPS units as well as AS-N1000 cold shoe adapter for mounting the ME-1 stereo microphone. High-speed dual multi-core image-processing pipelines with 600 megapixels per second speed:
Expeed 3. [22 ] Smart Photo Selector Mode enables selection of the best candidates out of a high-speed sequence.
[23 ] Advanced
High-definition video recording allows uninterrupted filming while capturing high-resolution photos. Firmware updates of the Nikon 1 lenses are possible.
Other technologies [ edit ]
Lens system [ edit ]
Nikon developed an entirely new system of lenses and the
Nikon 1-mount lens mount for the Nikon 1 series. These lenses are only compatible with 1-mount cameras. Nikon has not debuted a new lens mount since the F mount that routine users of the Nikon D series are accustomed to. Although the F-mount adapter FT1 enables the use of all F-mount compatible lenses, these lenses are meant to be portable and compact. There are 12 [24 ] Nikkor lenses specifically built to fit the Nikon 1-mount additionally to several manual focus lenses from Samyang.
