This kit includes a light and compact lens that perfectly complements the Nikon 1 V3’s superb image quality. With a power drive zoom, the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM lens covers a versatile range of 27-81mm in 35mm [135] format – perfect for wide angles, portraits and close-ups from as close as 20cm. With its advanced optics, you’ll capture crisp images with beautiful background blur. The cap-less design features an electrically controlled lens cover so you can quickly shoot after powering up

Unleash your creative streak with the V3. With the world’s fastest shooting speeds*1 that surpass even the quickest D-SLR, you’ll never miss out on the moments that matter. A lightweight marvel that also delivers unparalleled performance, this compact interchangeable lens camera empowers you to take your flair for photography further.

Be inspired to let your creativity run free with the power of the V3’s 18.4 megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor. With its new EXPEED 4A image-processing engine and a wide range of ISO sensitivities ranging from 160 to 6400 (expandable to 12,800), day or night, the V3 enables you to craft stunning shots.

The V3 will surprise you with its lightning fast performance that can rival even a D-SLR camera, thanks to its super high-speed autofocus (AF) CX-format CMOS sensor. In fact, it possesses the world’s fastest shooting speed*1 of approximately 20 frames per second (fps) when the autofocus is on and up to around 60 fps when the focus is locked.  With the world’s fastest*2 shooting time lag, you’ll capture absolutely every moment of the action. The enhanced controls on the V3 ensure each button has one dedicated function for improved usability.

Wi-Fi has been intelligently built into the V3 so that you can send photos and videos*3 to your loved ones’ smartphone or tablet, straight from your camera. Simply use the free Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app (available at the App Store and Google Play) to make transfers in the blink of an eye. 

*3 Wireless transfer of videos is available only on Android OS.
