Nikon 1 S2: 42 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. weight

6. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

7. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

8. video recording

9. has a stereo microphone

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

11. width

12. higher resolution (screen)

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

15. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

16. has AF tracking

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

22. Newer EXPEED version

Newer image processors are better at processing multiple tasks simultaneously, and can produce higher quality images with better low-light performance and faster AF.

23. shoots raw

A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.
