If you missed our post last night, the new Nikon 1 V3 was announced. Not only is it a speed demon, but it looks like a powerful mirrorless offering from Nikon. Features like 120fps slow motion video, and 20 fps continuous still capture make the Nikon 1 V3 an interesting option for anyone thinking about going mirrorless.

Nikon 1 V3 Specs


  • 18.4MP CX-Format CMOS Sensor
  • EXPEED 4A Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1,037k-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps
  • Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • Hybrid AF System
  • ISO 12800 and Movie e-VR Stabilization
  • 20 fps Shooting with Full-Time AFV3_10_30_PD_LCD_2v3-10-30-pd-dfn1000-grn1010-slup-1-1

One bit we weren’t able to share last night were the pre-order links, which did not become available until this morning. So, if this new $1200 speed demon interests you and you want to be one of the first to own one, you can now pre-order via B&H here. That kit includes the new 10-30mm lens as well as the grip.

At this time there is not an option to purchase the Nikon 1 V3 body only, maybe after it is actually released that will become an option. But for now, it’s buy the kit or not at all.
