Nikon 1 V3 sensor review: Ahead by design 2019


Nikon 1 V3 sensor review: Ahead by design 2019, Following the initial success of the Nikon 1 V1 and the somewhat unlicensed sequel to the Nikon 1 V2,

 Nikon introduced the most capable and, arguably, the most stylish model to date in the shape of the new Nikon 1 V3.

For enthusiasts looking to change their high-end compacts, the Nikon 1 V3 features a new 18-Mpix CX format (1- with on-chip phase-detection (PD) AF pixels) for better AF operation and faster. Inch type) claims CMOS.

Focusing on more than just adopting the opposite identity. This hybrid AF system boasts a total of 171 AF points, with 105 connected to dedicated PD pixels on the sensor.

A new XPED 4A level processor to handle the surge of data required not only an ISO12,800 maximum sensitivity, but full HD 1080p video recording at 30 / 60fps and continuing shooting at the same rate.

The Nikon 1 V3 can also boast continuous bursts of up to 20 fps with full-time FF. Although the body no longer has a built-in electronic viewfinder,

the V3 has a new 3.0 37 1,037k-dot tilting touchscreen LCD at the rear. However, if you prefer a viewfinder, the firm has announced an optional electronic viewfinder with 2,359k-dots and 100% frame coverage.

For added stability and safety, Nikon has also introduced an optional grip. It boasts angled controls for better handing like the firm's DSLR, and includes a third programmable function button and a sub-command wheel.

In the US, the Nikon 1 V3 is bundled with the Grip, EVF and the new stable 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f3.5-5.6 PD-Zoom Kit lens for around $ 1,200.

Nikon 1 V3 sensor Image Quality Evaluation: Nikon 1 V3

The new sensor in the Nikon 1 V3 performs well to score 52 points with DxOMark, yet it proves that an increase in pixel count does not necessarily degrade performance. In fact as a sampling device, higher pixel counts have benefits. 20.8 bits measured color sensitivity,

 a dynamic range of 10.7 stops and a 384 ISO score all-good for sensors of this size and resolution. Equally, though, the scores are on the low side when compared with the firm's Coolpix P7800 Compact and larger Four Thirds and APS-C sized sensors.

Nikon 1 V3 Versus Nikon 1 V2 vs Nikon 1 V1: Given good performance in pixel count

Compared to the predecessors of this model, the 14-Mpix V2 and 10-Mpix V1, Nikon have managed to maintain the same color depth and dynamic range while preserving the low-light capabilities that they are. In fact, the increase in pixel count and plethora of on-chip PD-AF pixels has had little effect on low light performance.

The Nikon 1 V3 as a flagship model is aimed at enthusiasts to complement other camera formats, perhaps even replacing the high-end compact with only a small lashing in weight and size for the flexibility of interchangeable lenses is.

 This is where the V3 should shine, but at $ 1,200 it seems expensive and the larger sensor may not match the 12-Mpix Nikon Coolpix P7800 sensor for color discrimination or dynamic range.

Like Coolpix, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II adopts a fixed zoom but has the same size sensor as the Nikon 1 V3.

 It also has a 20-Mpix resolution and is censored to the beat with a DxOMark score of 67 points. Unfortunately, the Nikon 1 V3 behind is adopting a different sensor vendor, and with slightly different design objectives - increasingly one of the most attractive features of the AF Nikon 1 system.

Nikon 1 V3 vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 vs Olympus OM-D E-M5: serious challenge?

Pitching against models with larger sensors, in this example Four Thirds, the Nikon 1 V3 sensor actually fails to excite.

The 16-Mpix Panasonic Lumix GM-1 may not quite match the pixel count, but it's actually smaller and lighter and more price sensitive.

The performance of the sensor is very good compared to Nikon. It has better color sensitivity, an extra standstill in the dynamic range and an improvement in low light sensitivity around +0.5. At the $ 999 body, you can opt for the Olympus OM-D E-M5. It is a bit heavier, but has a built-in EVF,

 not to mention very effective in-body 5-axis stabilization and lower-than-Panasonic better performance sensors. It has a more reliably different color, +1.5 stops wide dynamic range in low light sensitivity, and about +1 stop gain.

Nikon 1 V3 sensor The conclusion

While the sharp-styled and contemporary design of the Nikon 1 V3 is distinctive, the Nikon is yet to match Sony's 1 inch sensor in performance.

Nevertheless, Sony has yet to introduce any model featuring that sensor with interchangeable lenses, and the Nikon 1 V3 is attractive from that point of view. Some may argue that Nikon is not cheap.

 This may be aimed at enthusiasts, but the sensor's imaging performance falls short of more accessible price rivals.

While it's not really bad, it's not on the cutting edge of rivals, but then they can't match the Nikon 1 V3's unprecedented burst rates or remarkable AF capabilities.
