Developed with Nikon 1 engineering, the camera is built on the EXPEED 3 engine that comprises a host of advanced imaging technologies. Responsible for the product's powerful performance, these include dual image processors, focal-plane phase detection auto-focus and ultra-fast data transfer speeds. Shutter speeds in auto-focus and manual modes are 10 and 60 frames-per-second respectively, enabling full clarity amongst fast-paced shots with minimal preparation. Fitted with both an electronic viewfinder and a "Live View" LCD panel, users can access highly-accurate shot previews as they work for constant reference and project consistency. For truly professional applications, the 1 V1 includes accessory ports for attaching Speedlight units, high-quality microphones, and even a GPS transceiver. Rapid-fire image capture is mode possible via Motion Snapshot mode, a function that takes multiple back-to-back photographs when the camera's capture button is pressed and held. The Smart Photo Selector feature allows users to quickly scan through a large amount of still photos, setting parameters that will identify and remove photos based on poor lighting, blinking, lack of focus and more. Paired with the company's NIKKOR lenses, users can access a wide variety of specialized shooting environments ranging from macro to wide-angle applications.
