Excerpt: It’s rare these days that an upgrade to a previous generation of camera looks outwardly any different; but that’s not the case with the newly angular Nikon 1 V2 . Nikon has gone back to the drawing board and fashioned something that, whilst it can still be casually used one-handed, is ready for war. It more defiantly resembles a shrunken DSLR or bridge camera than 2011’s V1 predecessor.
Robust build quality, integral viewfinder and pop-up flash prove useful, Full HD 1920x1080 pixels video with stereo sound, handling should find it an easy fit for both those trading up from a snapshot and down-sizing from a DSLR
To be harsh, trickier lower light or high contrast shooting conditions result in pictures not a great deal better than we’ve previously got from a £200 snapshot
