If only Nikon weren't afraid of shooting itself in the dSLR foot

Disappointing

Paul, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Upgraded to the V2 after realizing there was no pop up flash. V2 is also lighter and easier to shoot with one hand because of the 35mm style grip on the body.

NOT WHAT YOU EXPECT FOM NIKON

Joshua, Amazon
29 July 2012
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. I bought this camera because I wanted my wife to have a small, lightweight point and shoot that would render DSLR images on an automatic setting. I am very surprised at the low quality of this camera, slow operation, horrible flash, incompatible hot shoe (???!!) and bulky lenses.

Spot Focusing is missing

wildlifeshooter, Nikon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: The 1V1 does not have "spot focusing". Without "spot focusing" it is impossible to shoot, for example: A bird in a tree; a background subject with foreground items. The dealer side stepped this issue even after I asked several times about "spot focus". I am EXTREMELY dissapointed and find the camera to be useless. When will Nikon address this and issue firmware to add spot focusing to the 1V1?

So dissapointed

pashee, Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: i just got my v1........ the few pics i've taken are incredibly disappointing. i also can't believe this thing doesn't have a built in flash!! i exchanged the j1 for the v1 because i wanted an external audio port, so i didn't even think to check if the j1 has a flash before i got it. i can't even believe it!! who cares about the dumb view finder?! i want a built in flash!!! i'm returning it. i guess i bought the hype, and now i'm sad.

Nikon V1 - sorry it isn't right

Herbert F. Munsterman, Amazon
19 April 2012
  • Summary: I have owned a V1 for about 3 months. In those three months it has been in my hands about 2 weeks. The rest of the time it has been shipped back to Nikon for warranty work. After a week it would only sporadically boot up. Then it quit entirely. So back to Nikon it went. They did some work...it took a while...and shipped the camera back. I took a few nice photos with it. After a week, the back LCD to viewfinder switching got cranky.

mirrorless? now that "newspeak" for sure!

Just a guy in Oregon, Amazon
4 April 2012
  • Summary: I used Olympus OM series film SLRs for years climbing and backpacking and for general photography. The results were no better or worse than that of friends using the famed Nikons of the time. The difference was WEIGHT and SIZE. My OM cameras were much smaller and lighter. I switched to digital years ago ...way ahead of the curve...with a Sony Mavica that was 640 x 480 max and stored on floppies.

Grey Import!

Mr M E Porter, Amazon
19 June 2013
  • Summary: Went to register for Nikon 2 year warranty and was told no can do as it was sourced from Asia. Very disappointing, glad I didn't buy my D800 from here as well.

Died after a few test shots

tbuyer "tbuyer", Amazon
1 March 2013
  • Summary: . The camera simply died after a few test shots (most inside my house, some on the street). Leaving that aside, it's an ok point-and-shoot. IQ is quite good for a point-and-shoot but it's very complicated compared to a point-and-shoot and quite inferior to other mirrorless systems out there. For the lowest price Nikon sold this camera you would think that it's a good deal -I thought the same thing. I was wrong.
