Nikon 1 V3 Mirrorless Camera
Digital Camera Description
The Nikon 1 V3 is a Mirrorless Digital Camera with a 1" sensor and a Nikon 1 lens mount. Its 18 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 160-12800 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 160-12800. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 18 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.
This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/16000 to 30s. Bulb exposures of an unspecified duration are possible with this camera. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/16000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.
The Nikon 1 V3 features a 105-point Phase-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.
Rare triple control-dials are featured on this digital camera, giving the efficient direct control over every exposure-parameter needed by professional photographers. This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. Framing on the Nikon 1 V3 is performed via an Optional EVF. This EVF shows 100% coverage.
