Excerpt: I have a Nikon D7000 for the big days and a Coolpix S4100 for the pocket. This Nikon 1 S1 fills the gap between them nicely. It has a much faster shutter response time so you can actually photograph what you are trying to. The two included lenses cover most shooting needs and the image quality is excellent.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: This is my first Nikon point and shoot after several years of using Canon's Powershot series. At first, I was not too impressed with the color quality when I was shooting via various modes (Auto/Program/Manual), but measuring the white balance helps significantly in getting the right tone in my images through the 'Image Processing' function. Overall - this is a great deal with the 2 lenses. It's compact enough to fit nicely into my purse/backup for my main camera bag.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Small / Compact
Summary: An excellent lightweight, easy to carry model...with Nikon quality producing high quality images...the interchangeable lens capability makes this camera a great value for the shooter who want extra versatility...
Excerpt: Bought this for the compact size for traveling purposes. Haven't gotten a lot of opportunities to take photos at night but daytime is awesome. The picture quality is quite impressive. Menu does take getting used to as I'm so use to my Canon T4i.
Summary: I bought this for my gf who wanted to take better pictures but wasn't quite ready for a dslr. This is a great in between with swappable lenses, compact (compared to DSLR) and takes great pictures. Highly recommended for someone not quite professional but want more than a point and shoot.
