Love your camera
Smooth, seamless, and brilliantly bold, the Nikon 1 S2 combines exquisite design with easy operation. Choose from four body colours to suit your style.
Split second timing
Pick the moment that matters with Active Selection. A new function in Best Moment Capture mode, Active Selection takes up to ten high-resolution shots in just one second, and you can choose the one to keep.
Point, shoot, and make movie magic. The smart choice for fuss-free filming, the Nikon 1 S2 shoots smooth action footage, and can take full resolution photos while you film. Creative movie modes make it easy to add some cinematic flair to your footage.
Put some genius in your images with Creative Palette. This intuitive feature lets you apply artistic filters to photos before you shoot. Simply rotate the multi selector, and watch the magic happen on the LCD monitor.
Shoot brilliant photos and HD movies at up to ISO 12800 with the large 14.2-megapixel CMOS sensor. With no optical low-pass filter, this fast CX-format sensor makes the most of every megapixel to deliver richly detailed, crystal-clear images even when you shoot in dim light.
EXPEED 4A engine
Nikon’s dual-engine image processor keeps you shooting spectacular images and HD movies at speed. One processing engine enables the camera’s stunning image quality; the other ensures fast, reliable performance and seamless continuous shooting.
1 NIKKOR kit lens
Capture stunning images right out of the box with the 1 NIKKOR 11–27.5mm f/3.5–5.6 zoom. A slim lens that’s big on convenience, this 1 NIKKOR is ideal for everything from casual snapshots to distant action and flattering portraits. Designed for instant shooting and superior portability, just rotate the lens to switch your camera on and retract it to switch the camera off.
Advanced hybrid AF
Lock onto action instantly with an autofocus system that includes 73 phase-detection AF points. Phase-detection AF is used in D-SLRs and keeps pace with your subject no matter how fast it moves. When the light is low or your subject is located at the edge of the frame, this intelligent hybrid system instantly switches to use contrast-detect AF for spot-on results every time.
The Nikon 1 S2 can snap full-resolution photos of the action faster than you can see it unfold. The camera takes ten images in a rapid burst, delivering continuous shooting at up to 60 fps with focus fixed at the first frame, and up to 20 fps with continuous AF.
You're the director
Nikon 1 makes it easy to film exciting Full HD (1080p) video clips. Hit the record button to start filming instantly and enjoy smooth footage of even fast-moving action. Electronic VR (vibration reduction) maintains a stable view even at full zoom.*1
Photos while filming
Why choose between movies and photos when you can capture both at once? With Nikon 1 you can capture high-resolution stills while filming simply by pressing the shutter-release button, or use Auto Image Capture, which analyses every frame and automatically snaps photos when conditions are best.
Creative movie modes
Fast Motion, Jump Cut, and 4-Second Movie features put the cinematographer in you centre stage. Energise your street scenes with Fast Motion, put an animated stop-motion feel on the passage of time with Jump Cut, or get expressive with to-the-point 4-Second Movie clips (you can stitch 8 together).
Truly simple operation ensures you’re always ready to capture the moment. The brilliant 7.5-cm (3.0-in.) 460k-dot LCD monitor makes it easy to compose and view shots, while well-placed buttons and an intuitive menu make it simple to add effects. The convenient F (feature) button offers instant access to the intuitive feature menu, for times when you want to adjust shooting or playback settings without any fuss.
Show more of a moment and create photos that move in just one click. The camera creates an easy-to-share 'living image' by capturing a moment in time as a short slow-motion movie that ends with a high-resolution photo. You can apply atmospheric ambience or background music, and combine up to eight Motion Snapshots into one exciting story in-camera.
Live Image Control
Easily enhance photos before you take them. Simply adjust the control bars that appear next to your image in order to freeze movement, tweak lighting, or blur backgrounds. Watch the changes take effect on the LCD monitor and see exactly what your photos are going to look like before you release the shutter.
Use Nikon 1 effects to add a creative twist to images before you shoot. Turn the ordinary into the extraordinary with filters like Miniature Effect, Toy Camera Effect, and Cross Process. Use Creative Palette to cycle through different effects and watch the on-screen image change: take the shot the moment you see the look you want.
Shine a light on your subjects with the pop-up flash. The compact flash unit automatically pops up in dim environments.
Bold and minimal
Glossy pop colours and irresistible design make the Nikon 1 S2 a joy to own. With its gently curved surfaces and minimalist design, it’s at home anywhere. Pick from four colourful bodies: ice white, matte black, lipstick red, or sunshine yellow. Your included 1 NIKKOR kit lens matches the camera’s body colour perfectly.
