Nikon V1 review

 

Nikon's interchangeable lens compact is the world's smallest to include an EVF

Built-in EVF with eye sensor ; Simple menu layout ; High speed shooting

Expensive ; Flash costs extra ; Screams "mug me"

Nikon 1 V1 review

 

When Nikon announced its first compact system cameras , the V1 and J1, the first reaction was "At last!" followed swiftly by "They've done what?!" The controversy was over the sensor size and, in the eyes of the loyal Nikonites, a lack of...

Nikon 1 V1

 

Nikon's new system camera is the company's first for over fifty years, since the introduction of the Nikon F no less, and as such represents a true milestone for Nikon. The fact that the new system uses a 10.1-megapixel CX sensor, a new lens mount and...

Image quality, easy to use, great EVF, AF speed, overall performance speed, JPEG+RAW shooting, great video features

Expensive, design is uninspiring, manual controls are all stuffed in menus

The Nikon 1 V1 is a remarkably adept point and shoot system camera that truly befits Nikon’s stated aim of providing an easy to use, quality compact system camera. It represents a truly bold and brave step by Nikon into the compact, mirrorless system...

Nikon 1 V1 review

 

A CSC like the J1, but with an EVF and higher resolution screen

Generally good build quality ; Easy to use ; Fun Motion Snapshot mode ; 60fps continuous shooting ; Image quality good

Smaller sensor than CSCs ; Exposure changed via menu ; Flimsy multi control dial ; Image quality can't match Micro Four Thirds cameras

Update: now with ISO sensitivity test images.

A classy camera, but those willing to spend this much are likely to be left feeling dissatisfied

Nikon 1 V1 camera review

 

We're going to say this right at the start: the 10.1-megapixel Nikon 1 V1 is capable of producing excellent images through its two standard kit lenses. Colours turn out vibrant, details are crisp and the camera gets the exposure right more often than...

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...

Nikon 1 V1 review

 

It is easy to cite the pixel count of the V1 as a reason not to be impressed, but I have to consider that the 10.1-million population could be the benefit that Nikon claims rather than the disappointment Nikon F users suspect.In the event I've not been...

Nikon 1 V1 Kit

 

Last year I was at the launch of the Nikon 1 camera, and although I asked several times to review it I never got to the top of the list. Now however Nikon have just launched the Nikon 1 v1 which comes with two lenses.

Most ‘kits’ come with something like a 28-55mm lens. With the Nikon 1 V1 kit you get a 10-30mm and a 30-110mm to give a wide range. You could also buy with just 10-30mm lens if you wished. Both are available in black or white. Te Nikon 1 V1 compact...
