Melville, NY—Nikon is now offering a range of accessories to increase the functionality of its Nikon 1 compact system cameras, including wireless adapters, underwater housings and lenses.
WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter. To increase the connectivity of the Nikon 1 V2, the Nikon 1 J3 and Nikon 1 S1, they were designed to work with Nikon’s optional WU-1b wireless mobile adapter—giving users the ability to easily transfer captured images wirelessly to a smart device. Once transferred, images can be posted to social media networks. Plus, if using the free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility app for Android platform smart devices as well as iPhone and iPad mobile digital devices, J3 and S1 owners have the ability to remotely take photos with the camera from a smartphone or tablet.
1 Nikkor VR 6.7–13mm f/3.5–5.6 and VR 10–100mm f/4–5.6 Lenses. With these two lenses, Nikon 1 shooters have more options when building a camera system that fits their shooting needs and creativity. The compact, ultra-wide-angle 6.7–13mm lens (18–35mm in FX/35mm format) is designed to provide photographers with new avenues to explore their creativity in photos and videos. The lens includes vibration reduction (VR) and has a 100º angle of view, which makes it suitable for capturing photos and HD video of landscapes, cityscapes, interiors and architecture.
For photographers looking for more range with their Nikon 1 cameras, there’s the new 10–100mm telephoto zoom lens (27–270mm in FX/35mm format), which also incorporates VR. The compact, lightweight telephoto lens is portable enough to take everywhere, while providing a long focal range for various types of photography, including group shots and action sports.
The 1 Nikkor VR 6.7–13mm f/3.5–5.6 and 1 Nikkor VR 10–100mm f/4–5.6 have suggested retail prices (SRP) of $499.95 and $549.95, respectively.
WP-N2 Underwater Case. This underwater case is said to be perfectly paired with the new underwater white balance setting found in the Nikon 1 J3 and Nikon 1 S1. The case can house either the J3 or the S1 in addition to the 1 Nikkor 10–30mm lens. It will also allow users to zoom in and out when using that lens.
