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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

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

Nikon V1

pcworld.pl
21 December 2011
  • 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

  • Conclusion: Det er spennende å se at en av de store endelig kaster seg inn i det speilløse systemkameramarkedet, men vi sitter igjen med en følelse av at Nikon 1 V1 havner litt mellom to stoler.
  • Pros: Kompakt utforming, god søker/skjerm, rask autofokus/seriefoto
  • Cons: Svak brukervennlighet, få funksjoner, ikke så komfortabelt grep, bildekvalitet ikke helt på høyde med de beste
