What is so great about the Nikon 1 V3 from a professional photographer’s point of view?
The guys from GadgetReview call it a “killer action camera”, able to continuously shoot still images at at 20fps with a continuous autofocus and 60fps in single AF, making the camera perfect to capture those exact special moments in sports actions, celebrity reactions, pets erratic behavior or children’s sudden mood changes. The Nikon 1 V3 was further investigated and got its laurel crown for the fastest and best auto – focus speed in its class. And speaking about class, let’s not forget this is a relatively a small, compact camera with a 18-megapixel sensor – which is smaller than its peers, but evidently more powerful. Without forgetting the built-in Wi-Fi with sidecar apps for iOS and Android, nor the spectacular video shooting features.
The Nikon 1 V3 is for the pros
However, just as the recent promotional video released by Nikon clearly show, this is less a camera for the regular Instagram user, but more a pro tool for paparazzi and especially sports and nature journalists. This doesn’t mean amateurs won’t get extended benefits from this impressive camera, but the price, the specs and the marketing seem to point out that there is a new champion in the professional photography league and they will probably be the first ones to get their hands on the product as soon as it shows up on the market.
