A lightweight marvel that also delivers unparalleled performance, this compact interchangeable lens camera empowers you to take your flair for photography further.

Blazing ahead of the rest
The V3 will surprise you with its lightning fast performance that can rival even a D-SLR camera, thanks to its super high-speed autofocus (AF) CX-format CMOS sensor. In fact, it possesses the world’s fastest shooting speed of approximately 20 frames per second (fps) when the autofocus is on and up to around 60 fps when the focus is locked. With the world’s fastest shooting time lag, you’ll capture absolutely every moment of the action. The enhanced controls on the V3 ensure each button has one dedicated function for improved usability.
Share moments as they happen
Wi-Fi has been intelligently built into the V3 so that you can send photos and videos to your loved ones’ smartphone or tablet, straight from your camera. Simply use the free Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app (available at the App Store and Google Play) to make transfers in the blink of an eye.
Let your creativity go wild
The V3 is equipped with a number of creative features that do all the work so you can focus on honing your artistic skill. With Creative Palette the intuitive touch screen allows you to change settings such as the colour, brightness and saturation of an image with just a simple trace of the finger in a ring-like movement. Creative Mode lets you create unique, memorable images with simple image editing such as portrait enhancement, fine-tuning ISO sensitivity, cross-processing and a toy camera effect.
Light in weight, heavy on features
Not only does the V3 impress with superior image quality, its compact and lightweight body also makes it the ideal travel companion. Specially created with an ergonomic design, the V3 fits perfectly in your hands. With the V3, you can enjoy the freedom to explore your passion, as you take your photography to the next level.
