Product Description

Fashion match - the Nikon 1 S1 is available in five stylish colours.

When the moment strikes, you need a camera that’s ready for anything. Launching the first model in the S-series; the Nikon 1 S1 is designed for speed and simplicity. With its interchangeable lens system, this camera delivers more than point-and-shoot snapshots. Intuitive digital controls and an astonishingly fast autofocus system, combine to create a camera which is as easy to use as a compact camera but is significantly more powerful, with better image quality. And outperforming others in its class with the incredibly short release time lag[1] and exceedingly fast continuous shooting speed[2] means the Nikon 1 S1 is always ready to spring into action providing you with crisp images and high-quality movies.

A Pocketful of Power

This smart, sleek, lightweight camera with built-in automatic pop-up flash is small enough that you won’t ever want, or need to leave it at home. Available in a range of five colours including glossy white and a stunning red version, the ever-expanding Nikon 1 interchangeable lens compact system is the new way to capture the speed of life.

Intuitive Operation

Designed for straightforward shooting the Nikon 1 S1 with Bright 460k-dot, 7.5 cm (3-in) LCD monitor with protective glass allows a wide-viewing angle, perfect for studying every detail in your photos and movies, indoors or out. The easy-to-use Graphical User Interface gives you quick access to shooting modes. The LCD screen displays simplified menus with larger icons for easier operation. And by pressing the F button to enter Live Image Control, you can view in real-time how different special effects will alter the look of your image before you shoot.

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.

Spot-on Shooting

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.

Perfect Timing

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.

Movie Magic

Whether you’re recording a kick-about in the park or a family celebration, the Nikon 1 S1 captures stunningly crisp Full HD footage at 1920x1080/60i. In Advanced Movie Mode, use PSAM controls for full control over shutter speed and aperture, with smooth autofocus transitions and crystal clear sound. You can even take full resolution still images without interrupting recording. And if you film at a smaller frame size you can achieve dramatic effects in extreme slow motion, with recording speeds of up to 1200fps. When you’re done shooting, get creative with Nikon’s Short Movie Creator software and edit the final cut adding a soundtrack and credit sequence to complete your award winning film.

The Nikon 1 S1 offers so many possibilities, why wait to share your amazing footage? With the optional WU-1b wireless mobile adapter it’s quick and easy to transfer high-quality photos straight from the camera to the Internet via your smartphone or tablet. You can even use the adapter to control the camera remotely from your device[3].

You’ll always be ready to shoot high-quality photos and movies with the Nikon 1 S1. Fast, stylish and refreshingly easy to use, the Nikon 1 S1 is simply ready for action.

I'll keep this short and sweet.

I stumbled across this little gem of a camera when in PC World, it was the last one in stock so it was going for a steal. I got the camera and two lenses (11-27.5mm and 30-110mm) for less than £190. Like I said, I should have worn a balaclava...

Having used a DSLR for sometime I was looking for a walk around camera rather than lugging all my heavy gear everywhere. It's not the most advanced camera on the market but it easily out performs any point and shoot or camera phone.

The image quality is great in good light but slightly grainy in poor conditions. The battery seems to last an age even when you are using the screen all the time. Controls take a bit of getting used to if you are used to having everything on hand with a DSLR but once you get the hang of it, it's quite intuitive. The screen is lovely and bright and once you've set it up correctly shows all the information you are ever likely to need.

The lack of Wi-fi and GPS doesn't bother me as they tend to chew up the battery on other models. Besides if you know where you are in the first place it's easy to add in location data through Lightroom/PSE when you upload to your computer.

To sum up: as an enthusiast photographer I find it a great day to day camera that can produce some great photos.

Excellent value for money, clear pictures and easy to use. Only drawback is price of lenses if you want extra accessories.

Bought this for my 18 year old daughter after she had seen a tv advert for it.
She loves all the functions to edit and change the type of photo.
Need to read the instruction book though.
