  • Summary: The Nikon 1 V3 is one of the few mirrorless cameras we'd recommend for shooting sports or quickly moving kids. It brings high autofocus performance, interchangeable-lens versatility, and DSLR-like handling in a portable size.
  • Pros: Fast and effective continuous AF, DSLR-like ergonomics with twin command dials (more so with grip), Small size, even with grip and EVF attached, EVF makes composing in bright light easy, Two customizable function buttons (third if using grip), Useful tilting, touchscreen LCD, Silent shooting mode...
  • Cons: Visible shadow noise at low ISOs (in Raw and JPEG), Low Raw file processing latitude, Non-customizable command dials (can't set direct exposure compensation control), LCD is tough to see in bright sunlight, Touchscreen can sometimes be unresponsive, LCD preview images sometimes have greenish/cool...

  • Conclusion: Nikon's 1-series camera line has long divided photographers. Some tell us that you love them -- especially those of you in more size-conscious Asian and European markets -- and you gravitate towards the 1-series for these cameras; compact body size and great performance.
  • Pros: Very compact for an enthusiast-friendly interchangeable-lens camera, Still fits in lots of physical controls, Generous kit includes lens, electronic viewfinder and accessory grip, Very high-res viewfinder, Intuitive, touchscreen LCD monitor, Good image quality for a 1"-type sensor (especially if ...
  • Cons: Smaller sensor than most rivals means less potential for high ISO shooting, Program mode emphasizes wide-open aperture over all other variables, Program shift function takes some getting used to, Default processing produces slightly soft in-camera JPEGs, Mediocre dynamic range with noisy shadows,...

  • Summary: Nikon V3 review: this new Nikon 1 camera adds a tiltable touchscreen and a slew of cool, new features. But how good is it, really? Amy Davies puts it to the test. The Nikon V3 is the latest addition to the Nikon 1 mirrorless camera series and introduces a number of new features, such as a 3in,...

This mirrorless compact camera packs excellent image quality, but its user-friendliness isn't great

  • Summary: While the the Nikon 1 V3 with the 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm PD-ZOOM lens gives you control dials for managing the aperture and shutter values, they aren’t enough to make us deviate from the perception that this camera is better suited to compact-style users rather than SLR-style users.
  • Pros: Very good image quality, Plenty of dials and buttons
  • Cons: No built-in EVF, No exposure preview, Electronic zoom, Awkward manual focusing

  • Summary: Nikon's 1 series of mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC) recently gained a new flagship - the Nikon 1 V3. This camera replaces the 1 V2. There are a few changes in the form of an upgraded design and beefed up specs. The Nikon 1 V3 loses the EVF to make the camera more pocketable.

  • Summary: Nikon have made some big changes to their flagship compact system camera, which is now seemingly targeted at more casual consumers, rather than the keen enthusiast that the previous V2 specifically catered for.

Nikon 1 V3 review

  • Summary: A small, sleek and stylish CSC with a tilting touchscreen and Wi-Fi
  • Pros: Touchscreen, Inbuilt Wi-Fi, Sleek design, The tilting touchscreen is a great new addition. It's responsive and easy to use. It's great to be able to quickly set the autofocus point as and when you need to, and it also comes into good use when playing back images – you can swipe and pinch to zoom ...
  • Cons: No viewfinder, Expensive, It's a shame to lose the viewfinder. While it keeps the sleekness of the camera in check to get rid of it, it also means that the V series loses one of its unique features when compared to other cameras in the Nikon 1 range. Enthusiast photographers are likely to miss ha...
