Nikon announces Nikon 1 S2 with world’s fastest high-speed continuous shooting rate with AF tracking
Nikon today announced the latest addition to the S series of Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses- the new Nikon 1 S2. The S2 enables capture of beautiful images, with simple operation and performance with tracking of moving subjects that exceeds that of digital SLR cameras, as well as a variety of functions, all in a compact and lightweight body that offers the superior portability that is a primary feature of Nikon 1 cameras. The Nikon 1 S2 is equipped with 135 densely packed focus points, and also boasts the world’s fastest high-speed continuous shooting rate of approximately 20 fps with AF tracking.
Equipped with an effective pixel count of 14.2-million pixels, a super high-speed AF CMOS sensor with no low-pass filter, the latest EXPEED 4A image-processing engine, and support for a broad range of sensitivities, from ISO 200 to 12800, the S2 is capable of capturing sharp and clear images exhibiting very little noise, even with shooting in dark surroundings
An intuitive and clear GUI has also been adopted to make the camera easier to use. The Nikon 1 S2 is also equipped with a Creative Palette that allows users to freely change imaging effects with simple operation of the rotary multi selector. A variety of movie functions, including support for recording of 1920 x 1080/60p full-HD movies and Auto Image Capture during movie recording, as well as new advanced movie functions such as Fast Motion, Jump Cut, and 4-second Movie stimulate user’s creative intent.
The S2 offers the superior portability that is a primary feature of all Nikon 1 cameras with a more compact body that has been refined for a more elegant design. In addition to white, black, and red, the S2 is also available in a new, attractive yellow. Lenses sold as part of lens kits with camera bodies are the same color as the camera body. This color coordination achieves an integrated look despite the fact that the camera uses interchangeable lenses.
