V stands for versatility – Nikon 1 – V2 compact interchangeable lens camera

The successor to last year’s Nikon 1 V1 compact interchangeable lens cameras has been announced.

The V2 looks very different from its predecessor and sports a host of new improvements. It has ­magnesium alloy build but is still a light 337g, and a sizable grip makes it easy to handle the camera.

Nikon has also added a pop-up flash, handy for when you have to shoot in conditions where there isn’t enough light.

Targeted at DSLR users who want a portable yet reliable camera, the V2 has a second-generation CX-­format CMOS sensor. The resolution has been bumped up from 10-­megapixel to 14.2-megapixel.

The V2 has a dedicated mode dial that gives users direct access to the camera’s manual and unique shooting modes. It also has a scroll wheel for adjusting the setting and navigating the menu.

The camera has a new processing engine called EXPEED 3A which allows it to shoot at up to 15fps (frames per second) with continuous autofocus.

While a Slow View function captures a series of 40 still images and plays them back in slow motion, allowing the user to choose the best frame. The V2 is expected to be available by early next year but Nikon has yet to reveal the ­pricing.
