Nice little Camera

ctrclckws, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: A nice little camera, but not quite a DSLR replacement. I was surprised to find that the interval timer function was not there, and it is available on a J1. This is supposed to be a more advanced model.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Small / Compact

Light Weight - Nice Images - Good for Tr

Traveler, B&H Photo
20 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Bought this because I was tired of lugging a D300S and related lenses on my leisure trips. Achieves the purpose of light weight and nice images. This is not a low light camera so don't expect that kind of performance. However, pushing some interior shots to ISO 3200 on a recent trip showed good results. Impressed with its capability and I like the DSLR-like shape with a built-in viewer. The added GPS unit helps picture location but places a load an batery life.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Light weight, Small / Compact

Good camera with a few not so obvious compromises...

William, Amazon

  • Summary: Silent mode turns off physical shutter (should be a separate mode) Grip is so much nice after switching from the J3 Good camera for those concerned about weight on outdoor trips Too many frilly pointless functions in my opinion. someone putting in this much money for this camera is not looking for creative modes, especially when the potentially most important one (time lapse function) is not present. FAIL!

  • Excerpt: The combination of this fast little devil, the FT1 adapter and the Nikon 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR, set me back around 1500 dollars and I think it's great to get this focal length (810 mm), autofocus, image stabilizer, speed (4.5 5.6), EVF (1440K pixels), weigth (aprox 1200 grams, all included) and these pictures, love it! I had to thank the speed here, landed for 2 second on 15 ft distance.

Upgrade fron V1

dwphoto, B&H Photo
26 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I am a D800 and D300 shooter, but found the V1 to be an interesting and capable camera. This purchase of the V2 was a move to gain better usability in the nikon 1 series. The V2 has proven to be more flexible in varied shooting situations and allows quicker changes to shot parameters and less chance of accidental changes. The camera is an excellent performer and I am happy with the purchase.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Small / Compact

Not Bad For A Second Camera

Bruce K., B&H Photo
28 April 2014
  • Excerpt: This camera is a decent backup or second camera. I don't always want to carry a D800 with the 28-300mm lens. Heavy and bulky. I also have a S6500, but the S6500 can unexpectedly have a shutter delay or slow focus. I looked at the J3 and AW1, but I still prefer a camera with a viewfinder. I waited for the V3 to see what it offered. I was hoping for a tilting screen to be added.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Grainy Viewfinder, No hot shoe, Spring Loaded Onoff

An addictive little camera

HST Southern MD, Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: I have a Nikon D 3 which takes magnificent pictures with the right glass. But It is heavy and bulky and when traveling for pleasure, I tend to leave it behind. I have always been on the lookout for a small pocket camera that takes reasonably good pictures and has a viewfinder. I have tried two different Canon G series cameras which are certainly compact, but I found them to be very annoying to use. The viewfinder is way too small.

A Flawed Little Gem

Roc889, B&H Photo
5 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Handling the Nikon 1 v2 is a vast improvement from the Nikon 1 v1. World's apart for shooting. Having the Mode dial on top of the camera of the Nikon1 v2 is a significant time-saver. Having the F (Function) key under your right thumb gives a wealth of controls for changing aperture, ISO, metering, AF mode, AF-area mode, and Picture rendition all while looking through the viewfinder. Plus: Focus is very fast.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Excellent Evf Viewfinder, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Image Stabilization 2 Sec, Is 2 Sec Delay, No Af Spot In Video, No Control Over Video Af

  • Excerpt: Much smaller than I had expected. Smaller than my V1, takes the same lenses. The control layout is quite different, I am happy that they moved the PASM dial to the top as I used to constantly hit the control when it was on the back of the camera. Also nice that is is a more standard PASM control now. The high speed motor drive settings are not what I was expecting so this is taking some tinkering. Granted I have only owned the camera for a few hours.
