Nikon 1 S2 detailed hands on review

by | Jan 23, 2015 | Blog

Although they’ve been around for a while, I’d not had the opportunity to experience a Nikon 1 series camera.

It’s winter in Toronto, so walking around High Park and Harbourfront seemed like good opportunities to take photos and video. You’ll also see a quick shot from the new Milton Velodrome. Those cute cubs are from World Wildlife.

Price is quoted in Canadian dollars.

My sincere thanks to Tom Hanley for composing the music; to Strategic Ampersand for arranging the loan; to Kona bicycles for the nice swag; and to Calla for the cubs. As always, I’m not a Nikon employee, have not been compensated by them in any way, and they’ve not seen the video before posting.

The photos are mapped to the video resolution (1920×1080) using “Fit” and 95%. All photos (and their EXIF data) can be found at my maartech flickr account. All photos have been processed in Lightroom and most are presented without modification.

My on-camera scenes are shot using a Sony VG20 camera. Beauty and screen shots of the Nikon 1 S2 are taken with a Sony A6000. Edited on a 5K iMac in Final Cut X 10.1.

As always, if there are any details I’ve overlooked, I welcome (and reply to) your comments and questions
