January 6, 2015

Silent and compact remote camera control with the Nikon 1 V3, which boasts the world’s fastest high-speed continuous shooting and outstanding performance with the tracking of moving subjects

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that it is currently developing new firmware, scheduled for release in May of this year, for the Nikon 1 V3, Advanced Camera with Interchangeable Lenses, that will provide compatibility with Nikon’s remote control software, Camera Control Pro 2. Along with the new firmware, Nikon also plans to offer a remote control software development kit (SDK), similar to that available for Nikon digital SLR cameras, in June of this year.

Development Background

Camera Control Pro 2 is remote control software for Nikon digital SLR cameras*1 that enables remote shooting. It was designed primarily for professional photographers, and is used for remote photography of a variety of subjects, including commercial goods and portraits in a studio setting, nature, and sports.
The new firmware being developed for the Nikon 1 V3 harnesses the characteristics of that camera to achieve silent and compact remote camera control. Camera Control Pro 2 support of the Nikon 1 V3 not only responds to the needs of professional photographers, but enables fields of photography that differ from those with which conventional digital SLR cameras are effective, and greatly expands business applications by taking advantage of a wide variety of camera features, including its compact and lightweight body offering superior agility, the adoption of a high-speed mechanical shutter that is highly durable, the silencing of shutter and operational sounds with Silent Photography, the world’s fastest*2 continuous shooting at approximately 20 fps with AF tracking, exceeding the capabilities of digital SLR cameras, superior moving-subject tracking performance, a function that enables storage of multiple images captured using high-speed continuous shooting immediately before and after the shutter-release button is fully pressed, the ability to capture still images while recording movies, and the ability to record slow-motion movies.

Mississauga, ON –

Mississauga, ON (January 5, 2015) – Today, Nikon Canada announced its latest DX-format HD-SLR, the Nikon D5500, a lightweight yet powerful camera that offers a robust feature set, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and the ability to capture incredible photos and HD video with ease. An ideal entry-level HD-SLR for creative photographers ready to take their storytelling to a new level, the D5500 sports an impressive arsenal of imaging technology, including a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter (OLPF) and a new 3.2-inch Vari-angle touch operation LCD display. All of this and more is packed into a new monocoque design that makes the camera one of Nikon’s lightest and most convenient-to-carry HD-SLRs. Nikon has also expanded its already impressive line of NIKKOR lenses with two new additions, the versatile AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR II ZOOM lens for DX-format shooters and the FX-format AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR Telephoto lens, a lens with advanced Phase Fresnel optics for lightweight super-telephoto performance.

The Nikon D5500 makes no sacrifices when it comes to image quality, featuring a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, capable of rendering amazingly sharp and tonally rich images and HD video. The removal of the sensor’s OLPF allows for an impressive level of detail and sharpness from an affordable HD-SLR, while the addition of the EXPEED 4 image processing engine works to improve overall speed and performance in a variety of shooting situations. When shooting in low-light, D5500 users can also take advantage of an expanded wide-ranging ISO spanning 100-25,600, making it easy to capture great images even when light is scarce. Alongside Nikon’s impressive arsenal of NIKKOR lenses, the D5500 is a powerful imaging tool capable of incredible image quality, whether shooting flattering portraits or stunning HD video.

Compact, Portable and Ready to Share

To capture the perfect moment, it’s essential to have a camera that’s ready to go anywhere.

Tue December 2, 2014 | by Itai Danan

Nikon D750 Review

The D750 is the latest full-frame DSLR from Nikon. It is uniquely optimized to deliver a high-end video performance, capturing full 1080p HD video at 60 FPS and offering a 3.2″ LCD which tilts to frame video from above or below.

Nikon’s Total Production of NIKKOR Lenses for Interchangeable Lens Cameras Reaches 90 Million at the End of October 2014

Tue November 4, 2014


This video presents NIKKOR Lens Technology.

Take a look into the innovative technology that goes into NIKKOR lenses and see why professionals around the world settle for nothing less than NIKKOR lenses.

Total Production of NIKKOR Lenses for Interchangeable Lens Cameras Reaches 90 Million

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that the total production of NIKKOR lenses(1) for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras reached the ninety million milestone at the end of October 2014. Additionally, production of NIKKOR lenses equipped with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM), the autofocus motor developed exclusively by Nikon, recently reached fifty million.

In 1959, Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K) released the Nikon F as well as its first NIKKOR lenses for Nikon SLR cameras, including the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2. Since then, the NIKKOR tradition has continued. Nikon continues to actively release new NIKKOR lenses utilizing advanced technologies cultivated over its long history, while further expanding its lineup of lenses for the Nikon 1 compact interchangeable lens camera system. Since reaching the eighty-five million lens milestone in January 2014, production of NIKKOR lenses continues at a steady rate.

In addition, total production of NIKKOR lenses equipped with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) has reached fifty million. Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics, which achieves extremely quiet autofocus photography. In just eighteen years since the 1996 release of the Ai AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/2.8D IF-ED, which was one of the first lenses to employ SWM technology, a total of 72(2) lenses equipped with a SWM and covering a broad range of focal lengths have been released for both FX and DX-format DSLR cameras.

In September 2014, Nikon responded to a variety of user needs by adding the new ultra wide-angle AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED to its already robust lineup of fast f/1.8 fixed focal length lenses for FX-format cameras. The new 20mm f/1.8 lens utilizes the latest optical design technologies to achieve superior resolution, while the adoption of Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat controls ghost and flare. Lightweight and extremely portable, Nikon’s newest ultra-wide angle lens is ideal for fulfilling one’s photographic vision.
