Full Speed Ahead
The speed you associate with Nikon 1 cameras has been further enhanced with Nikon’s next-generation EXPEED 3A dual image processor. This together with the super-high-speed AF CMOS sensor focuses faster and more accurately than ever before to deliver the performance you need for stunning photos and movies. With 10.1 effective megapixels and an ISO sensitivity from 100 to 6400, the Nikon 1 S1's CX format CMOS image sensor renders amazing high-resolution images—even those shot under very low light. And the newly-added e-VR (electronic Vibration Reduction) feature corrects image blur for even sharper snapshots.
Subjects snap into focus without delay thanks to the advanced hybrid AF system. The super-high-speed autofocus system works by instantly selecting the AF type that best suits the situation. For fast-moving subjects, it will choose the 73-point phase-detection AF. When shooting in low light or focusing accurately near the edge of the frame, it switches to 135-point contrast-detect AF. And when you’re shooting movies, AF tracking can maintain focus as you shoot to make sure you always capture superb high-resolution movies, effortlessly. When it’s this quick and easy to keep your subjects in focus, capturing the action is a real pleasure, whatever the conditions.
Incredible, high-speed continuous shooting with autofocus lets you capture full-resolution images at up to 15 fps.
Break the Speed Limit
Continuous shooting is ideal for capturing those blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments. Thanks to the Nikon 1 S1 you can capture that shot no matter how fast your subject is moving. In Auto Mode the camera can focus incredibly fast, shooting full-resolution images at 15 frames-per-second and without autofocus tracking you can enjoy an even faster 60 fps burst.
When life’s moving too fast, switch to Best Moment Capture and make the most of this camera’s incredible speed. In Slow View you can quickly capture up to 15 full-resolution images which are simultaneously displayed in slow motion on the LCD screen so you can select the exact moment you want to keep. Smart Photo Selector takes up to 15 full-resolution images and then automatically recommends up to five of the best shots. The camera identifies superior photos, based on factors like facial expression, composition and focus. Putting an end to missed opportunities with Best Moment Capture you’re guaranteed to take a great photo, no matter how fast the action.
Creative Mode gives you access to the PSAM shooting modes for total control.
See Things Differently
The Nikon 1 S1 offers a wide range of quick and easy ways to enhance your photos, even before you’ve taken them. Motion Snapshot puts a twist on everyday snapshots by combining a still photo with four seconds of slow-motion movie into a ‘Living Image’. And in Creative Mode you can apply filters and effects to photos before you shoot. Why not enhance the mood with Soft Filter, enjoy a world that’s always perfectly lit with Night Portrait mode, or create artistic monochrome photos with flashes of colour in Selective Colour. And when you want the control to shoot scenes exactly as you please, Creative Mode gives you direct access to PSAM exposure controls. When shooting is finished the supplied Short Movie Creator software lets you add music to your photos and movies in a single MOV file so you can upload them to any platform and have fun sharing stories in a whole new way.
