Nikon’s new 1 v3 camera has some pretty impressive specs regarding hi-speed video.
- 120p at 1280*720 HD (Time duration not specified)
- 60p at 1920*1080 Full HD for 10min
- 768 x 288/400 fps (aspect ratio 8:3; plays at 30p/29.97 fps) */
- 416 x 144/1200 fps (aspect ratio 8:3; plays at 30p/29.97 fps) */
- MSRP $1,199 USD
*/ Hi Speed Cams doesn’t consider these resolutions to be usable for professional work. It might be good to have them for scientific purposes but not for video quality that can inter-cut with professionally shot material.
We still have no samples from the 120p mode but it might produce a very clean image since Nikon’s 60p mode is very good in recent cameras.
This camera is important because it is the first time we have access to over 60p in an interchangeable lens camera be it SLR or Mirror-less. The Panasonic GH4 will have 96p at 1080 which in our view is a more important milestone because of resolution. More on that camera over the coming weeks.
It will be interesting to see what the 1 V3 is capable of and if it’s artifacts are well controlled at the 720p mode. We might be a generation away from 240p at 1080 in a consumer priced camera.
