Nikon’s mirrorless F-mount adapter will support AF (plus new video mode specs)

Newer Nikkor lenses will be able to AF on the Nikon V1 and J1 mirrorless cameras with a new F-mount adapter

A quick update on the latest Nikon mirrorless camera specs I posted two days ago:

  • The Nikon-F adaptor for their mirrorless camera will support autofocus with AF-S and AF-I lenses (AF-I is the older integrated autofocus technology before AF-S, read more here).
  • The available mirrorless camera video modes will be: 1928x1080 at 60fps and 30fps plus 1280x760 at 60fps. The continuous shooting rate will be 10fps.

    Do you think this camera could capture video in HDR ?

      I mean, the crop factor is disappointing, lens don’t seem exceptional… there’s got to be something innovative here, we’re talking about Nikon…

        give the Expeed 3 a chance to show its mettle. it will resolve a lot of doubts based on rumored specs. Once it’s out, you have a chance to compare the output quality with Fuji X10, NEX-5N, NEX-7, or any other “compact-sized” travel gear… or walkaround companion…

        • Who cares about Expeed? That crap only matters when shooting JPEG.

    I don’t give a hoot about the mirrorless system. Where hell is the D4, D800 or D400?

      Coming soon … In 2012 and 2013 all your wishes will come true :-).

      the crying by full frame users continues. nikon: these people are hurting, on the inside. their little feelings are being hurt by your failure to do what they want, when they want. please make their dreams come true and their lives worth living again by releasing a d700 successor.

        Such a wonderfully ironic post has made my day. However I have two caveats 😉

        1 Your comment will probably go right over the head of most of those doing the crying.

        2 Those full frame users already using a D3/s/x & D700, i.e 100% of existing Nikon full frame users are not the ones doing the crying.

          Those doing the crying will keep on crying until they get a FF in a DX body with a Coolpix pricetag on it…

            You hit the nail on the head. Do you remember everyone criticizing Nikon when they introduced the D700? How idiotic it was and how stupid business sense it made… Probably the same crowd is crying now begging Nikon to introduce D800 or whatever it will be called. It goes to show you cannot please everyone, and Aesop said it thousands of years ago 🙂

  • I. Don’t. Care.

      Gee. Thanks. For. Sharing.

        your comments make me want to quit the interweb. son i am disappoint.

    10 megapixels is enough for most (non-pro) consumers. I never made a print larger then 20 x 30 cm. 10MP can do that.

    I also believe that the newest technological improvements on this new generation of image sensors will improve the low-light capabilities and the IQ in general.

    We’ll see the same IQ as in the low-level DSLR like the D3100 in the new mirrorless 🙂

    Hi Peter/admin,
    Quick question since all is quiet…
    Earlier Nikon put out that strange statement saying “Nikon understands that some article appeared in the media regarding Nikon’s imaging product. Please note that Nikon has made no announcement in this regards.” ?
    Why do you think Nikon would address what’s basically a rumour with such a statement on their website ?
    There have been plenty of rumours in the past, some right some wrong, but I’ve never known any company go to this length to dismiss it.
    I wonder if this explains why no leaks of any sort have surfaced from Nikon recently…Maybe they’ve just had enough of the various blogs, and now news programmes, reporting leaks and rumours, and have a zero tolerence approach to them ?

    A Sign of the times or today’s reality?

    Perhaps this is one reason why Nikon is targeting other lands with this new camera system.

    • broxibear

      Yeah interesting article,
      “They don’t want to promote luxury because they are worried people who cannot afford it will see the advertisements. But they don’t want to limit luxury products because it’s good for the economy. So they’re facing a dilemma.”
      So basically carry on getting rich on the back of the poor workers, but make sure the poor don’t see you driving around your bright red Porsche ?
      The whole world is facing a dilemma, the market system as is doesn’t work…I don’t know how many collapses it’ll take before they realise.
      Or maybe they do realise but choose not to do anything about it.
      Happy days ?

        Caught between a rock and a hard place it seems.

        Some countries have spent their entire GNP plus their future on wars and are now broke, hence today’s reality.

    Maybe, just maybe, this mount will sport the only format small enough that a 70-200 35mm-efl collapsible powerzoom lens would fit in your pocket (other than the Q).

    The Panasonic 14-42 X collapsible powerzoom lens makes the Micro Four Thirds format seem like a compact format, but I don’t see them announcing a 42-100mm pancake zoom of similar size. Maybe they can’t.

    Right now you see people with DSLR + P7100. In the future maybe you’ll see people carry NX with wide pancakes + CX with telephotos.

    I bet Ricoh would like to get their hands on that 2.7x sensor for GXR.

    I hope they suprise us and it’s actually a dx sensor. Then I’ll buy one. No questions asked.
