Nikon 1 S1 Review

Digital Camera Review
9 May 2013
  • Summary: Conclusion The Nikon 1 S1 is an attractive camera that I enjoyed using for the most part. It's conveniently small and lightweight. It has very good performance and excellent image quality, even at high ISOs. However its video was disappointing due to a consistent jittering effect. Also, it lacks several features present in the 1 J3, which is not that much more expensive.
  • Pros: Small size, attractive appearance, Quick performance, Excellent autofocus system, Very good image quality, even at high ISOs, Manual controls
  • Cons: No mode dial so all mode changes require accessing the menu, Kit lens lacks optical image stabilization, Videos are jittery, No panorama mode

  • Conclusion: The Nikon 1 S1 is a great pocket-sized compact system camera, with all the automatic and manual controls you'd ever need, and with a few interesting and fun features thrown in to boot. Taking up the entry-level end of the system, it's smaller and lighter than its higher spec siblings, the J3 and V2 models. Despite having very few direct access buttons, the S1 is a pleasure to use, thanks to a clear and intuitive menu system.

Nikon 1 S1 review Review

CNET
2 April 2013
  • Summary: If you can't afford a J3, look this way. It may sport a lower-resolution sensor, coarser LCD and plastic body, but the S1 matches its more expensive siblings in many respects. Think with your head rather than your heart and you'll see it's a good deal with much to offer.
  • Pros: Compact body, Decent image quality, Small lens system, Good price
  • Cons: Wind noise on movies, Not as appealing as J- and V-series cameras

  • Conclusion: Nikon 1 S1 – одна из самых компактных беззеркальных камер. Выглядит весело, особенно в ярких цветах корпуса, имеет очень быстрый автофокус и выдает достаточно качественные снимки. Nikon 1 S1 прекрасно подойдет в качестве апгрейда для переходящих с компактных камер, поскольку ее система управления ориентирована на пользователей, которые хотят получить лучшее качество снимков, чем у их нынешнего компакта, и при этом особенно не заморачиваться с настройками.
  • Pros: Сменные объективы, возможность установить наиболее подходящий для конкретной задачи., Очень быстрый автофокус., Наличие набора экспорежимов PASM., Точная подстройка баланса белого (причем индивидуальная для каждого пресета)., Настраиваемые Стили изображения., Поддержка формата RAW (однако нет опции RAW+JPEG)., Скоростная серийная съемка с электронным затвором – 15, 30 и 60 кадр/сек, в полном разрешении 10 Мп., Необычный режим "Замедленный повтор" (по сути, наглядный в...
  • Cons: Нет ни встроенного видоискателя, ни возможности установить опциональный внешний., Нет разъема для установки внешней вспышки., Монитор неповоротный – что ограничивает возможности фото- и (особенно) видеосъемки., Для приведения китового объектива в рабочее состояние требуется нажатие кнопки., Нет экранного меню, дающего быстрый доступ ко многим параметром во время съемки., Нет ни брекетинга по экспозиции, ни иных видов брекетинга., Нет живой гистограммы., Нет популярной...

Test: Nikon 1 S1 (DSLM bis 1.000 Euro)

  • Excerpt: Fazit: Im Test erweist sich die Nikon 1 S1 als komfortabel zu bedienende DSLM, deren Stärken in den Automatikfunktionen und der Geschwindigkeit liegen. Die Bildqualität der günstigsten Kamera aus dem Nikon-1-System muss sich trotz des nur zehn Megapixel auflösenden Sensors nicht hinter den Familienmitgliedern verstecken, zeigt aber Defizite im Vergleich mit anderen DSLMs.
  • Pros: Autofokus schnell, Rasante Serienbilder, Einfache Automatik-Funktionen
  • Cons: Schwacher Akku, Bildqualität befriedigend, Wenig fortgeschrittene Möglichkeiten
