The new entry-level model recovers from the latest Nikon 1 mirrorless Nikon AF hybrid, dual processors, and movie mode. 14 Mpixel CMOS without low-pass filter, new creative filters for photos, gust up to 60 fps, between the features. Nothing flash and external viewfinders, optional wireless.
THREE PILLARS FOR NIKON 1 S2 – The new Nikon 1 S2 mirrorless (successor to the Nikon 1 S1) announced today is characterized by three aspects: ease of use, elegance – which often goes hand in hand with the compactness of size – speed of recovery. The challenge that Nikon will be exhibiting the Nikon 1 S2 is to provide a medium of photography from a competitive side with smartphones, for design and for superior picture quality, the other with different cameras to beat – and beat the second mark yellow and black – on the shutter speed.
THE BEST OF NIKON 1 J4 AND NIKON 1 V3 – Nikon 1 S2 recovers some advanced features of the upper range (Nikon 1 V3 and Nikon 1 J4) as the dual-processor EXPEED 4A, who works at the same time to shoot and image processing; or the new movie mode: Automatic Acquisition picture while shooting video, when conditions are optimal, Jump-Cut, fast moving, Film 4-second movie slowed down, in size 8:3, taken up at a speed of 400 fps and played back at 30 fps; and the old Motion Snapshot, a combination of fixed and moving image (we have described these features about the Nikon 1 J4).
NO LOW PASS FILTER – The CMOS sensor is 1″, with 2.7x crop, as Nikon 1 system, but is devoid of the optical low-pass filter, a solution already proven on the recent SLR and Nikon in the house began in earnest; sensitivity reaches ISO 12800, and can be limited in the values reached in automatic mode; the white balance provides fine adjustment of all the 7 presets available.
A sprinter – We find the Nikon 1 S2 also the hybrid AF system introduced on the Nikon 1 from the beginning, in the most recent version at 135 points, including 73 in phase detection, central, and 62 in contrast detection, peripheral. This allows for exceptional speed focusing, even during the burst, which is declared the highest ever – according to research Nikon – 20 fps, 10 Raw with continuous AF, 60 fps with focus fixed at the first frame.
WHAT HAS AND WHAT HAS NOT – Regarding the shooting, the news are the Creative Palette to add various filter effects to your images; do not miss the HDR, and lacks – talk about an entry-level model – the time lapse, shooting spaced, and the laying prolonged arrives in 2 min. Also missing the external flash and optional external viewfinder, while the optional wireless module to change the pictures and video to smartphones and tablets, even if you do not speak the remote control or from your smartphone or with the remote control. The monitor is not adjustable nor touch, but still 3″ 460,000 pixels.
