One of a kind? Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review
The Nikon 1 V3 takes its place as successor of Nikon's enthusiast-focused mirrorless line.

Since its introduction the 1 system has offered impressive auto focus and burst shooting capabilities so it's no surprise that the V3 excels in these areas - it offers 20 fps burst shooting with continuous AF and a Hybrid AF system using 171 contrast-detect and 105 phase-detect points. It's the most promising mirrorless camera Nikon has offered enthusiasts yet, and our full review is underway. In the meantime, take a look at our first impressions and shooting experience.
