Nikon 1 series hands on
Of course, neither the GF1 or P7000 come in a rainbow of colours (see above), or have some of the Nikon 1 series’ interesting shooting modes. Rather than offer shortcuts to well-trodden effects like ‘background defocus’ or ‘tilt shift’, Nikon has created a new one called ‘motion snapshot’.
Seemingly a way to show off the series’ new Exspeed 3 sensor, this simultaneously records a short, slo-mo .MOV movie file and takes a still JPEG to create a ‘living picture’. No, we’re still not entirely sure what that means either, but Nikon is apparently working on easy ways of exporting these to social networks.
