Nikon has rolled out a very cool new camera today called the Nikon 1 V3. The camera looks like a typical point and shoot, but it's not. The Nikon 1 V3 is an interchangeable lens camera that claims some interesting world firsts in its resume.




The camera has a hybrid auto focus system that promises the world's fastest continuous shooting mode good for 20 fps with full autofocus. If you fix the focus, you can get even faster burst shooting at up to 60 fps. The rear LCD is a 3-inch unit that supports touch and variable angles.


The resolution of that LCD is 1.037 million dots and it can be tilted 180-degrees. The camera sensor is an 18.4MP CX-format CMOS sensor that lacks a low-pass filter. Images are processed y the EXPEED 4A image processor and the camera has an ISO range of 160 to 12800.


The hybrid AF system has 171 contrasts detect AD points and 105 phase-detect AF points. An optional electronic viewfinder is available for the camera. Full HD resolution video recording is supported with the VR shake reduction system enabled. Video can be recorded at 120fps in 720p resolution. Wi-Fi is integrated to let images be shared with mobile devices. The camera will sell for $1200 when it ships in April.
