A mirrorless Nikon with Nikkor zoom for $299? Yes indeed. B&H Photo is offering the Nikon 1 V1 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10-30mm Lens for $299 with free shipping. And for a very limited time, free overnight shipping.
The V1 features a 3.0" LCD display and a 100 percent view electronic viewfinder (with diopter adjustments). Other specs include:
- 10.1Mp 13.2 x 8.8mm CMOS CX Image Sensor
- EXPEED 3 Image Processor
- SD/SDHC/SDXC Card Slot
- Advanced Hybrid AF
- 100-3200 and 6400 ISO
- i-TTL Hot Shoe for Optional Speedlight
- 1920 x 1080/60i Movie Capture
This is the kit that recently sold for $800 before the V2 was released by Nikon. (According to DxOMark, the V1 actually has better image quality than the newer, more expensive V2.) Many photographers have purchased the V1 because of its advanced Hybrid AF, which has earned very good marks, super slo-mo video capture, mechanical and electronic shutter, and because it uses the same battery as the D7000.
Definitely the camera deal of the day.
