Nikon 1 V3 images and video specs leaked!

Several hours ago Peter from Nikon Rumors has posted that Nikon is going to announce the V3 around midnight EST/early morning GMT. Now Andrew Reid from has posted a short article with images and video specs of the V3 ahead of the supposed announcement. It reads as follows:

The Nikon V3 will be the first mirrorless camera to feature 120fps HD slow-mo at 1280 x 720 resolution. Also available are 400fps and 1200fps at lower resolutions. Nikon have added an electronic stabilisation mode (called EVR) and 1080/60p to round out the spec.

This is what the Nikon 1 V3 looks like. nikon-v3-frontnikon-v3-backGoing by the images of the V3, Nikon seems to have upped its game. The body looks like a good mix of the V1 and V2, which is sadly lacking an EVF. In the below picture from the top you can see that the optional add-on EVF DF-N1000 is large as was to be expected and situated where the standard hot shoe might be. On the left is the pop-up flash and on the right the optional grip GR-N1010. So, even if there is in fact a standard flash hot shoe, users who prefer having a viewfinder will not be able to use it, which is very unfortunate. I hope that the pop-up flash can act as a wireless commander. nikon-v3-topHere are the latest specs from Nikon Rumors:

  • No optical viewfinder
  • Optional, external 2.4MP electronic viewfinder (EVF) that will attach to the hot shoe
  • Built-in flash
  • Standard hot shoe – you will be able to use regular Nikon Speedlights and the built-in flash could act as a wireless commander
  • Several new interesting video features
  • New external grip will not take any batteries, but it will have a shutter button and front dial
  • Expeed 4a imaging processor
  • Completely new camera design similar to the drawings of this recently filed patent and it will be all black (not sure if they will offer different colors)
  • Very fast everything
  • 18MP sensor
  • Eye sensor and a button to switch between LCD and EVF
  • 180° swivel LCD screen

And here is a video of the V3 shooting a 20fps burst.
