  • Summary: Overall, I am impressed by the Nikon 1 V1 – it is a solid, high-quality camera with excellent performance characteristics.

Nikon 1 V1 Review

Digitaltrends

  • 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.

28 March 2012
  • Summary: 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 quality, RAW shooting capability, Built-in viewfinder
  • Cons: Expensive, Optional grip blocks battery, Loss of AF with FT-1 adapter

  • Summary: And yet the Nikon V1 and J1 are also arguably the most misunderstood cameras of recent times, based purely on early comments over their basic specifications. When Nikon finally announced its first mirror-less interchangeable lens camera (ILC), it was almost inevitable many were disappointed when...
  • Pros: Fast AF and confident tracking in good lighting., Fast burst shooting, including 10fps with AF., Able to capture high-res stills while filming HD video., Built-in viewfinder, mic input and accessory port.
  • Cons: Viewfinder slow to activate and no manual override., Switches to slower AF system under dim conditions., No exposure bracketing, live histogram or effects., No built-in flash. Proprietary accessory shoe limits options., Shutter often too slow in Portrait mode to avoid blurring.

8 November 2011
  • Summary: The Nikon 1 V1 is more capable than the J1, but the body lacks its sibling's finesse and we're not sure the extra features justify the higher price. Nonetheless, the V1 produces some of the sharpest, most detailed shots we have seen.
  • Pros: Great level of detail; Compact interchangeable lens system; Good build quality.
  • Cons: Some evidence of colour fringing; Expensive.

  • Excerpt: The Nikon V1 is Nikon's first foray into the growing Compact System Camera market, and is designed to offer D-SLR-style quality and the ability to change lenses in a smaller body. But with many competitors already on their third-generation CSCs will it be able to compete?
