The Nikon 1 System is becoming more widespread with the arrival of the Nikon 1 J4. Sharing the same 1″ inch sensor size and a variety of Nikon 1 lens choices for the system. The Smaller 1″ sensor has an advantage over m4/3 and APS C in the faster readout rate with less rolling shutter which translates to faster frame rates possible.
Nikon’s new 1 v3 camera has some pretty impressive specs regarding hi-speed video.

*/ 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.
