Excerpt: Let me start off this hands-on review of the Nikon 1 V2 with a reminder that no one camera can do everything that an owner may require. Regardless of the price paid, every piece of equipment comes with compromises. And, so it is with the Nikon 1 V2.
Summary: The white balance system on the Nikon V2 is generally reliable, managing to produce accurate images in a variety of lighting conditions. Colours do appear a touch muted on the default settings, although the ‘Picture Control’ settings are on hand to add a boost to colour if desired.
Pros: A host of impressive features; Introduction of dedicated mode dial; Improve handling and design; Blisteringly fast AF
Cons: Poorly-designed menu system; Image quality issues; High price tag
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.
Pros: Compact body and lens system; Image quality; Colour reproduction; Video performance; High frame rate shooting; More accessible controls.
Cons: Some fall off in focus towards corners; Some bleached highlights; Expensive.
Conclusion: The Nikon 1 V2 is an interesting concept. It attempts to right some of its predecessor's wrongs by adding a more traditional mode dial to the redesign, but the interior menu system still feels alien and can be a faff to navigate. What the camera really gets right is speed.
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
Pros: Small body, Advanced controls, Viewfinder, The new shape of the camera makes it much easier to hold and helps it feel sturdier, especially when shooting one-handed. Something as simple as adding a mode dial to the top of the camera makes it a much nicer experience when you want to quickly change ...
Cons: Small sensor, Average EVF, Fixed LCD, It's a shame that digital filters couldn't have made their way onto the camera for those looking to be a bit more creative, but Picture Styles are a good backup.
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.
Summary: Nikon have made some big changes to the original V1 to make this new model more appealing to keen enthusiasts, and in most regards they've succeed in making the new V2 a much more serious proposition.

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...
Summary: Nikon hat mit der V2 das zweite Modell seiner Nikon-1- Systemkameras am Start, diesmal mit einem eingebauten Sucher und einem Aufklapp-Blitz. Der Test von PC Welt zeigt, ob die Digitalkamera auch noch auf anderen Gebieten punkten konnte.
