Nikon announces Nikon 1 Mirrorless Camera

Nikon makes the 1 V1 and J1 mirrorless compact system cameras officially official. Each will sport a CX-format 10.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, a new 1 lens mount and full HD video.
A quick look at some specifications:

  • Still frame burst rate with locked AF: 60 fps!!! No one else comes close at the moment
  •  Both cameras will record full 1080 HD video at 60i. Slow motion movie mode is available at up to 1200 fps.
  •  Hybrid phase and contrast detection auto focus, switching from a 73-point phase-detect mode into contrast detection with AF illuminator in low light conditions. Auto focus is now split second! As a high end DSLR camera user, I am now very envy of this!
  • Native ISO range of 100-3200 with a Hi setting available for a 6400 equivalent.
  • Optional mount adapter allows all F mount NIKKOR lenses to be used!
  • The CX format sensor provides a 2.7x crop factor.
