Nikon’s New ME-W1 Wireless Microphone: High-Fidelity Sound For High-Resolution Videos

ME-W1-Wireless-Microphone

 

Nikon ME-W1 Wireless Microphone: £239.99 inc. VAT

Sales Start Date: TBC

London, UK, 2nd March 2015 Nikon today announces the new ME-W1 Wireless Microphone. Portable and easy to use, this non-directional/monoaural microphone records crisp audio from up to 50m away.

Compatible with any camera equipped with a microphone jack, the ME-W1 Wireless Microphone is an incredibly handy piece of equipment to own. It has been engineered to capture clear, uninterrupted audio direct from the source, delivering the kind of high sound quality that makes an audience sit up and take notice. Comprised of a microphone transmitter and a receiver that communicate via Bluetooth, the system is simple to set up and easy to use. The ME-W1 is ideal for recording presentations, on-the-spot street interviews, and professional-quality video blogs, with up to three hours continuous use on a single battery. And should you want to capture a music performance in stereo, simply plug the Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone into the ME-W1’s external microphone jack.

Edward Allinson, Junior Product Manager, Lenses & Accessories, Nikon UK, says:

“The new ME-W1 Wireless Microphone is the ideal tool for aspiring videographers who use a Nikon D-SLR to capture their video, and seek professional, high-quality results. This superb, easy to use device offers outstanding sound quality with up to three hours uninterrupted use on a single battery, making it an excellent addition to Nikon’s already vast range of accessories.”   

Quality sound from the source

The ME-W1 Wireless Microphone is a superb way to enhance the power of your video footage with clear audio captured direct from the source. When you need to move around, or you’re shooting in noisy environments, a wireless microphone can be an invaluable piece of equipment. With the freedom to position the microphone right by the source, you can easily add another layer of emotion to your movie, capture the full power of a speaker’s voice, or record ambient sound from hard-to-access positions. With the ME-W1, both the microphone transmitter and the receiver capture sound. Audio can be recorded via the microphone alone or via the microphone and the receiver, making it easy to focus on your subject alone or record a two-way conversation. Whether you’re shooting interviews or ‘man-on-the-scene’ style video blogs, the option of one-way or two-way audio recording is an incredibly useful one to have.

Versatile

Compatible with a wide range of cameras, the ME-W1 Wireless Microphone doesn’t just benefit Nikon D-SLR users. Any Nikon 1 or COOLPIX camera equipped with a microphone jack can be used directly, and you can connect various third-party devices to the ME-W1 via optional dedicated cables. The sound input is monoaural, but when you want to record in stereo, simply plug Nikon’s optional ME-1 Stereo Microphone into the ME-W1’s external microphone jack. Whether you’re capturing a music performance or a keynote presentation, you get freedom of movement and video composition without affecting sound quality or directionality.

Portable and durable

Able to deliver up to three hours of uninterrupted recording on a single AAA battery, the ME-W1 is incredibly easy to power. Coupled with its compact dimensions and water resistant, shockproof, and dustproof construction, this microphone is a highly convenient tool. Whether you’re pounding the streets interviewing people for a new video blog, recording a lengthy event, or shooting movie scenes all day, you have portability and durability to keep going.

Nikon D7200: the DX-format D-SLR that’s ready to match your every ambition

Step up to excellence with the new Nikon D7200: the DX-format D-SLR that’s ready to match your every ambition

Nikon-D7200-DSLR

 

Nikon D7200 body only: £939.99 inc. VAT
Nikon D7200 body and 18-105 VR lens: £1,119.99 inc. VAT

Sales Start Date: 19th March 2015

London, UK, 2nd March 2015 Nikon today announces a new D-SLR to lead its range of DX-format cameras. Fast, versatile and fully connected, the sophisticated D7200 delivers sumptuous stills and outstanding video performance.

With a host of features inherited from Nikon’s renowned FX models, the D7200 has plenty to offer passionate photographers. This is a camera that’s ready to match the ambition of every photographer who wants to create exceptional images with a lightweight D-SLR system.

Nikon-D7200-DSLR-frontIn a first for a DX camera, the D7200 enables precise subject acquisition down to -3 EV, thanks to its autofocus system inherited from Nikon’s legendary professional cameras. Combined with the camera’s wide ISO range and fast burst rates, you can shoot sharp in the dark and achieve clear footage of night time video scenes. Functions that enable light trail photography and smooth time-lapse movies extend creative options, as does the extensive range of compatible DX and FX NIKKOR lenses. The D7200 is also the first Nikon D-SLR to support NFC (Near Field Communication). Now users can choose whether to transfer impressive stills to a smart device via NFC or the camera’s Wi-Fi function1. When it comes to movies, versatile video features and the camera’s lightweight DX body combine to make the D7200 a welcome addition to any production environment. A dedicated menu for movie settings, advanced options for audio control, and the latest generation of Picture Control settings allow superb flexibility. And the camera is compatible with Nikon’s new optional ME-W1 Wireless Microphone, which captures clear sound from up to 50m away.

Simon Iddon, Group Product Manager, D-SLR lenses and accessories, Nikon UK, says: “The D7200 is a class breed of camera that inspires excellence and creativity. Its advanced features make it an ideal camera for both experienced photographers and people looking to get started with a top-of-the range camera. Nikon’s superb ergonomics and extensive range of DX- and FX- format lenses offer the freedom to shoot subjects with ease and without limitations. It’s now also simpler than ever to share your images using the sophisticated NFC or Wi-Fi function1. The outstanding ISO performance and excellent AF system make the D7200 a cut above the rest and ensure outstanding image quality in any situation.”

Fulfil your ambitions

The D7200 is the kind of camera that will inspire you to go further with your photography than you ever have before. With its large DX-format image sensor, EXPEED 4 image processor and an ISO range of 100–25600, images boast an extremely wide dynamic range, low noise, and rich colour gradation. You get print-quality 24.2-megapixel photos of any subject, and clear high definition video footage, even when you shoot in dark conditions. The incredible flexibility this camera offers to shoot without being limited by subject or location is further assured by its pro-grade AF system, inherited from Nikon’s FX-format cameras. Sensitive down to -3 EV (ISO 100, 20 °C/68 °F), the Multi-CAM 3500 II 51-point AF system locks onto your target with incredible precision, even in the dark. Fifteen cross-type sensors in the centre deliver superior subject acquisition, and one centre point is f/8 compatible, enabling more lens/teleconverter combinations. You can shoot at up to 6 fps in DX format, and at up to 7 fps in 1.3x crop, with the camera’s large buffer capturing up to 27 12-bit RAW images and up to 100 high-quality JPEGs in one high-speed burst.2 The 1.3x crop mode also gives you the option to extend the telephoto reach of your NIKKOR lens, and have the AF system’s 51 focus points cover the entire frame.

Cinematic video your way

With video features inherited from Nikon’s professional cameras, the D7200 is a highly capable moviemaking tool. The camera records Full HD movies at up to 25p/30p, or you can switch to 1.3x crop mode and record at up to 1080/50p/60p. A dedicated movie menu lets you store all movie settings in one place, and footage can be recorded to the dual SD memory card slots, or simultaneously output to an external recorder or monitor via HDMI. You can shoot with Auto ISO control in M mode in order to transition smoothly between dark and bright areas, use Zebra mode to see exactly where highlights are blown, and apply the Flat Picture Control setting for easier colour grading in post-production. And because sound quality can make or break a movie, the camera boasts advanced audio controls that let you select the sound range (wide/voice), and reduce wind noise when recording with the built-in microphone. When recording with an external microphone, Nikon’s new optional ME-W1 Wireless Microphone is a superb way to enhance the power of your video footage with clear audio recorded directly from the source. Both the microphone transmitter and receiver capture sound, so audio can be recorded via the microphone alone, or via the microphone and the receiver, making it easy to record just your voice, focus on your subject alone, or record a two-way conversation.

Next-level sharing

The D7200 is Nikon’s first D-SLR to include support for NFC (Near Field Communication), in addition to Wi-Fi. To transfer photos to an NFC-compatible smart device, simply touch the D7200 with the device and you can transfer the image that’s showing on the camera’s LCD screen. Alternatively, use the built-in Wi-Fi to upload impressive photos via a compatible smartphone or tablet. Simply download Nikon’s free Wireless Mobile Utility app to your smart device first1. The built-in Wi-Fi function also lets you capture images remotely via your smart device, making it easy to position the camera to shoot from various vantage points. To take further control over wireless shooting, use the WR-R10 Wireless Transceiver and the WR-T10 Wireless Transmitter, or control your camera settings with the WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller. To connect to Ethernet and wireless LAN, use the optional UT-1 Data Transmitter together with the WT-5 Wireless Transmitter.

Explore, create, experiment

A range of features harness the power of the D7200’s core technology, ensuring you’re free to experiment and get as creative as you please. When shooting, the 8.0-cm (3.2-in.), 1229k-dot colour-tune monitor lets you push the colour balance and brightness in any direction to suit your personal preference. The viewfinder boasts an organic EL display element for a bright, high-contrast information display with low power consumption. Whether shooting stills or video, Nikon’s second-generation Picture Control System provides invaluable tools for control over sharpening, contrast, brightness, hue, clarity, and saturation. For ultimate freedom in post-production, the Flat setting will retain all the details and preserve rich tonal information in both highlights and shadows. The Clarity setting lets you precisely adjust contrast to differentiate fine structures. Additional creative features include the option to shoot time-lapse sequences with smooth exposure transitions through simple menu operations. And you can create spectacular light-trail photography by shooting in continuous release mode with a shutter speed of 4 seconds or slower. Simply record as many images as your media cards and battery life will allow.

Extend your creative options: NIKKOR lenses and Nikon Speedlights

Shoot with the D7200 and you have Nikon’s full range of DX-format lenses and a wide range of FX lenses at your disposal. With their exceptionally high resolving power, NIKKOR lenses are renowned amongst professional photographers in every field. The compact size of DX-format lenses is a real advantage when you want to travel light or shoot telephoto. In fact, shoot in 1.3x crop mode and you can extend the telephoto effect of a DX lens by 30 per cent. For creative flash photography, the D7200 is compatible with a range of Speedlights from Nikon’s industry-leading Creative Lighting System. Thanks to the commander function on the camera’s built-in flash, you can wirelessly trigger and control up to two groups of Nikon Speedlights. Attain more balanced images in tricky lighting situations with a compact flash like the SB-700. For movies or close-up still images, try the SB-500 with its on-board high-intensity LED light.
