My Frist Mirrorless Digital Camera

embazle, B&H Photo
1 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I waited for quite some time before purchasing this camera until one day I searched online and was lead to BH's website and found it was on sale for a GREAT PRICE! I was debating at first to get the 10-30mm & 30-100mm kit but after rewiewing other reviews, the 10-100mm pretty much replaced both of these lenses.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

The Mirrorless Camera journey begins

1 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I've had my eyes on this camera for some time but wanted a good price for it. I searched online and to my surprise found it on sale at BHphotovideo.com. I couldn't decide between the 10-30mm & 30mm-110mm kit. Reading other reviews, I trusted their advising that the 10-100mm kit would pretty much replace both 10-30mm & 30mm-110mm lenses. Since I plan on taking landscapes and close-ups, it made more sense getting this kit.

Good Step Up from Point-and-Shoot

rrieger, B&H Photo
19 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I like the small size and excellent RAW files it produces. I also have the V1, and the V2 improves on some of the V1 control issues (e.g. V2 has a PASM dial). Still, my wish would be for controls similar to my D800. I realize the small body size may not allow that entirely. I wish it had a standard hot shoe so I could use my SB800 flashes occasionlly. The 1 series lenses are excellent. Overall, I'm quite pleased.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Nice little Camera

  • 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

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

William, Amazon
13 November 2014
  • 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!

User Review

Sollie3, DP Review
12 August 2014
  • 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.

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
