Good package for the price

  • Excerpt: When the Nikon Series 1 system first came out I wasn't sure I would spend that kind of money for a very small sized sensor mirror less camera. I shoot Canon for my pro work and I always tried to stick to the Canon system, but after a major disappointment with the EOS M (mainly because of a goofy UI not for lack of image quality) I thought I was done with this category of cameras.
  • Pros: Decent battery life, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Very Good 1080p Video
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO

Most Interesting Camera!

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera out of curiosity! I own a Sony RX100 which also has the 1" sensor. I wanted to see what Nikon did. The fast action is truly amazing. It's also very different in approach. Not your usual PASM on the dial. What I wasn't counting on is the excellent photos it can take. Really good. I don't like not having a flash built in, as I like to use flash when taking pictures of folks in the "wrong" direction (into light).
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Love The Evf, Quiet
  • Cons: Hard To Not Use Auto, No built in flash, Noisy At High ISO, Point Focus Hard To Set

Great camera - what can you say, it's a Nikon!

  • Summary: This is one amazing little camera! I have a Nikon D200 and an assortment of lenses which I love, but this V1 will be my travel camera for going overseas. The size and compactness of the camera and several lenses is ideal. One does have to get used to handling a smaller seemingly delicate instrument after using the larger DSLR. This is a great system, especially with the 6.7 to 13mm wide angle zoom and the adapter to use the larger DLSR lenses.

High Performance Camera In A Small Package

  • Summary: Got a V1 with a 10-100mm zoom several weeks ago and have been using it constantly. I have a D7000, but I was really looking for something smaller and less obtrusive to take with me everywhere I go, since I live in NYC. The V1 has all the features of a dSLR without all the dials and buttons to distract you. Images with the V1 in RAW are sharp and after some post editing, are very colorful with a "film-like" quality that I love.

Full featured, compact

  • Summary: A great camera, now discontinued. The 400fps video is fantastic. With the FT-1 lens adapter the AFS VR 70-300mm becomes 200-800mm equivalent. At 400fps, hand held, jitter becomes slow pan. Also has interval shutter (time-lapse). Some may not like 10 megapixels, only 5 times the size of a 1080p monitor. 10mp is plenty of crop space!

Great Camera

  • Summary: Great little camera. I have used this camera since it first came out and it is much better than a point and shoot and so much smaller and lighter than a DSLR. I have the flash and the FT 1 adapter so it will do anything that I need for it to do. Battery life is great and no batteries needed with the flash. Runs using the camera battery. I also have a adapter so that I can use Leica lens on the Nikon 1 body.

  • Excerpt: There's really nothing bad about the functionality of the Nikon V1. Its weakest point is low-light performance (which seems on par with my first DSLR — the Nikon D50). It works great with Nikon AF-S lenses using the FT-1 adapter, and the 1 system zooms are tiny and quite competent. All the Nikon 1's problems come from its bizarrely awful user interface. Why they didn't just put a PASM dial and a command dial on the sucker I don't know.

  • Excerpt: SHORT VERSION The Nikon V1 is a small, light, well-built camera that takes very good photos and video clips, and is a lot of fun to use. It has a few operational and handling quirks that can sometimes be quite annoying, but overall it is easy to use. It is a very good camera for 95% of my needs, and I highly recommend it.

Great Autofocus but poor image quality

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera looking for a small lightweight travel camera. First impressions, the handling was o.k., the nikkor lense is very nice, the autofocus in single shot is as fast as any pro level DSLR, but the focus tracking missed about 50% of the time. The burst rate is increadable at 10/30/60 frames/sec.
  • Pros: Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Poor Image Quality, Poor in Low Light
