Pros: Dedicated electronic viewfinder. Hot shoe for flash. Two lenses are included in the box.
Cons: No pop-up flash. Small proprietary CX sensor. Horrid manual focus.
Summary: The Nikon 1 V1 is a compact SLD with a unique 10 megapixels sensor which provides ultra-fast Phase-Detect autofocus, continuous shooting up to 60 FPS and full 1080p HD video. The V1 also squeezes in a large 0.47" EVF with 1.4 megapixels for a clear eye-level view while shooting and filming.

Nikon 1 V1 review: Nikon's interchangeable lens camera can supply great image quality, but it fails in usability and value
Good Gear Guide.au
31 October 2011
Conclusion: The Nikon 1 V1 is an interchangeable lens camera that's capable of supplying great image quality, and it's well built, but it's poor when it comes to usability. Furthermore, its sensor is very small and not up to the standard of competing cameras from Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony.
Pros: Great image quality, Body feels good to hold
Cons: Controls and menu, Small sensor, Unintuitive
Conclusion: Nikony z serii 1 to produkty, które trudno polecać jakiejś określonej grupie użytkowników. Nie są dla zaawansowanych, bo ręczne ustawianie jakichkolwiek parametrów powoduje konieczność zagłębiania się w odmętach menu. Może ich także odstraszać zbyt mała matryca.
Pros: Małe wymiary optyki, solidne wykonanie, czas ekspozycji 1/16000 s
Cons: Spore szumy, małay sensor, słaba dynamika obrazu, za mało pokręteł
