CNET

  • Summary: A beautifully designed and constructed compact camera with a lens system that brings out the strengths of the compact interchangeable lens form factor. Image quality is good and it's genuinely fun to use. Travellers who want the flexibility of a dSLR without the bulk or weight should look this way.
  • Cons: Some fall off in focus towards corners; Some bleached highlights; Expensive.

  • Summary: Image quality of this mirrorless depends on what it is compared against. Its 2.7X crop-factor sensor puts it well ahead of of most fixed-lens cameras but also behind the majority of mirrorless ones, including its predecessor, the V1 Nikon 1 V1 which uses larger pixels in its 10 megapixels sensor. Still, the V2 produces clean images up to ISO 400 and usable results until ISO 6400 for small prints. Metering, color and white-balance are all quite good.
  • Pros: Ultra-fast autofocus until very low light, Excellent metering, Realistic image colors, Good white-balance, Usable up to ISO 6400 for small prints, Instant shutter-lag, Virtually no blackout, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Quick and responsive, Excellent EVF with Eye-Start sensor, Sharp and crisp LCD with fast refresh rate, Ultra quiet, Very solid build quality
  • Cons: Above average image noise for a mirrorless, General image softness, Limited dynamic range, Limited lens selection, Not, Few direct controls, Short battery-life, Proprietary hot-shoe, 1s video delay, AF and MF sounds get recorded during video, Wrong framing of video in image mode and vice-versa

  • Summary: There's a lot to like about the Nikon V2; a camera which sees a real marked improvement on its predecessor. Although the design might not be to everyone's taste on an aesthetic level, there's no arguing with the fact that the addition of a fully functioning mode dial on the cameras top plate, as well as an ample hand grip, both make the V2 a more enjoyable camera to shoot with.

Nikon 1 V2 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: The Nikon 1 V2 is an impressive little camera, and if you can look beyond the relatively small sensor and resolution there are some superb features. Its AF system is extremely fast in good light, and the EVF, fast shooting rate, and build and handling all add to the camera's appeal. Image quality is also very good, and while it cannot quite match the quality of a camera with a larger sensor, it will be more than enough for enthusiast photographers, particularly if used...

  • Summary: Buy this camera if: - You're looking for a well-built snapshooter's camera with interchangeable lenses and HD video recording. - You want an optical viewfinder. - You have Nikkor lenses that wouldn't be out of balance on the smaller body but could provide benefits through longer effective focal lengths. Don't buy this camera if: - You require a pocketable camera (it's only pocketable without a lens). - You want full manual control over all camera functions.
  • Pros: You're looking for a well-built snapshooter's camera with interchangeable lenses and HD video recording., You want an optical viewfinder., You have Nikkor lenses that wouldn't be out of balance on the smaller body but could provide benefits through longer effective focal lengths.

Nikon 1 V2 review

Pocket Lint
7 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Nikon's been reinventing its 1-series of compact system camera with a whole batch of new releases of late. The Nikon 1 V2 is the top-spec model in the series which incorporates a built-in electronic viewfinder and is, on the face of it, targeted at the more enthusiast snapper. The £749 price tag would certainly suggest so.
  • Pros: Super-fast autofocus system, impressive burst mode, sharp images are good quality, relatively small size, dedicated mode dial, built-in electronic viewfinder
  • Cons: Blocky design, pricey, sensor won't match up to larger equivalents, subtle image noise visible from mid-ISO settings, layout and menus conflict with more traditional systems, EVF could be higher resolution, ghosting lag in viewfinder upon movement, no ISO 100

Обзор Nikon 1 V2. Компактная беззеркалка для любителей путешествий

  • Summary: Проведя с Nikon 1 V2 достаточно времени, я понял, что не знаю, какой сделать вывод. Сказать, что камера плохая, я не могу, что хорошая — тоже. Скорее всего, она нейтральная. Она хорошо снимает фото, но при этом звезд с неба не хватает, она хорошо снимает видео, но фильм или клип снимать ей я не стал бы. Вроде, все круто, а вроде — сыро.
