  • Conclusion: We think the Nikon V1 would grab more attention if Nikon had distinguished its handling a little more from that of the J1. Giving it an articulated touchscreen, an exposure mode dial and a customisable button or two would make it quicker to use and more versatile.

Review: Nikon 1 V1

Wired
29 May 2012
  • Excerpt: With the V1 , Nikon debuts new less-is-more thinking. It’s got fewer external manual controls in favor of more novice-friendly aids like Smart Photo Selector, which rattles off 20 stills in less than a second and picks the best five before letting you choose the keeper. The speedy autofocus can track subjects at 10 fps — if there’s enough light. When there’s not, the 10-megapixel sensor struggles mightily. WIRED Dedicated electronic viewfinder. Hot shoe for flash.

  • Summary: The Nikon 1 V1 with a 10-30mm lens is available in the market at a price of Rs.42,600. This camera was launched last year, across the world and it has only made its way to India, just recently. Many brands are recognizing India as a strong market for the compact system camera segment. With the case of this camera, it is built really well and looks good, too. It has various features that put it in a category by itself.

Nikon 1 V1 Review: Plays Well With Legacy Lenses

Digital Camera Review
28 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The Nikon 1 V1 presents the unique combination of a built-in viewfinder, compatibility with F-mount Nikkor lenses (thanks to an adapter) and a big 2.7x crop factor. We put the V1 to the test, focusing especially on its applications with Nikkor F-mount lenses. Take a look.
  • Pros: Good still image and video quality, Good shutter lag and AF acquisition time, RAW shooting capability, Improved battery capacity over J1, Built-in Viewfinder, FT-1 Adapter for multiple lenses
  • Cons: Cost, Optional grip blocks memory card and battery access, FT-1 Adapter loses continuous AF capability, some shooting modes

Nikon 1 V1 Review

Digitaltrends
27 February 2012
  • Conclusion: We really have difficulty recommending the V1 as tested simply because it’s wildly expensive, and the results don’t measure up to the competition. Think about this for a moment: you can buy a 24-MP Sony NEX-7 for $1,500, with an 18-55mm lens and a flash. Would you rather own that camera with its nearly universal high ratings, APS-C sized sensor and AVCHD video, or the V1? Case closed. Now, what about the V1 with a flash and kit lens for about a grand?
  • Pros: Beautiful LCD screen/EVF, Quality photos/movies with enough light, Fast focusing
  • Cons: Simply too expensive

  • Excerpt: Add one more to the great hall of mirrorless cameras with Nikon’s new Nikon 1 System . Using an all new “CX” 10 megapixel CMOS sensor, the flagship camera, the Nikon V1 ($899) will include a 10-30mm lens (27-81mm equivalent), an electronic viewfinder, 1080i 60 fps and an accessory port for add-ons including a mini-speedlight, GPS unit and microphone. And yes, an adaptor for Nikon F-mount lenses is already on its way.

  • Summary: The J1 will reward point-and-shoot upgraders with a noticeable bump in image quality, but it often fails to deliver acceptable results in lower-light settings when operated in its fully automated mode.
  • Pros: Good image quality (comparable to 12MP Micro Four Thirds sensor output), Very good, print-ready JPEGs - nice color reproduction, and a good balance of NR/detail, Fast and accurate phase-detection tracking AF as part of adaptive 'Hybrid' AF system, Exceptional continuous shooting rates - up to 60 fps, Effective (automatic) in-camera correction of fringing/CA and vignetting in JPEG files, Smart Photo Selector works very well in day-to-day shooting (and is great for grou...
  • Cons: Conservative Auto ISO behavior can result in dangerously slow shutter speeds indoors (especially frustrating for social photography and continuous-advance shots of indoor sports), No 'live' simulation of exposure compensation, nor on-screen histogram, Few direct access buttons and no 'quick menu' - some basic exposure parameters (such as ISO, white balance and exposure mode) can only be accessed via the main menu, Very little customization possible, No control over Hy...

Nikon V1

PC Magazine
16 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Nikon V1 is priced like a high-end mirrorless camera and delivers solid performance, but doesn't offer the level of controls or lens options that demanding photographers require.
  • Pros: Eye-level electronic viewfinder. Fast, accurate autofocus. Silent operation. Expansion port. Excellent high ISO performance.
  • Cons: Expensive. No built-in flash. Very limited lens selection. Few physical controls.
