Advanced hybrid AF

When the light is low or your subject is located at the edge of the frame, this intelligent hybrid system instantly switches to use contrast-detect AF for spot-on results every time.
The Nikon 1 S2 can snap full-resolution photos of the action faster than you can see it unfold. The camera takes ten images in a rapid burst, delivering continuous shooting at up to 60 fps with focus fixed at the first frame, and up to 20 fps with continuous AF.
