Nikon 1 V2

 

With a boost in resolution amongst other things, the V2 is a big improvement over the V1.

Good range of useful shooting features, Addition of dedicated mode dial, Improved handling and design, Blisteringly fast AF performance

Menu system still clunky, Some image quality issues, High price tag

Nikon 1 V2

 

Nikon's been reinventing its 1-series of compact system camera with a whole batch of new releases of late. The Nikon 1 V2 is the top-spec model in the series which incorporates a built-in electronic viewfinder and is, on the face of it, targeted at the...

Super-fast autofocus system, impressive burst mode, sharp images are good quality, relatively small size, dedicated mode dial, built-in electronic viewfinder

Blocky design, pricey, sensor won't match up to larger equivalents, subtle image noise visible from mid-ISO settings, layout and menus conflict with more traditional systems, EVF could be higher resolution, ghosting lag in viewfinder upon movement, no...

The Nikon 1 V2 is an interesting concept. It attempts to right some of its predecessor's wrongs by adding a more traditional mode dial to the redesign, but the interior menu system still feels alien and can be a faff to navigate.

The recent additions to the Nikon 1 System, including the new V2, demonstrate Nikon\'s dedication to delivering a camera system that meets the needs of creative and expressive consumers looking for an easy-to-use camera that is portable enough to take...

Nikon 1 V2 review

 

The Nikon 1 V2 is an impressive little camera, and if you can look beyond the relatively small sensor and resolution there are some superb features. Its AF system is extremely fast in good light, and the EVF, fast shooting rate, and build and handling...

Nikon 1 V2 review

 

Newly angular upgrade to Nikon's flagship V1 interchangeable lens compact shoehorns in flash and EVF

Robust build quality, integral viewfinder and pop-up flash prove useful, Full HD 1920x1080 pixels video with stereo sound, handling should find it an easy fit for both those trading up from a snapshot and down-sizing from a DSLR

To be harsh, trickier lower light or high contrast shooting conditions result in pictures not a great deal better than we’ve previously got from a £200 snapshot

Ultimately though, whilst the V2 is better than the vast majority of snapshot cameras, would you want to pay £800 just to be able to say that? It’s well built and handles like you’d expect a semi pro model to, but at full asking price others outgun it.

Nikon 1 V2 review

 

While it was a long time coming, Nikon's 1 series of compact system cameras has proved incredibly popular since its launch. The V2 is the second generation in the V strand of the 1 series, and...

A host of impressive features; Introduction of dedicated mode dial; Improve handling and design; Blisteringly fast AF

Poorly-designed menu system; Image quality issues; High price tag

Nikon 1 V2 mirrorless camera hands-on!

 

If you followed the launch of Nikon\'s J2 interchangeable-lens compact recently, then waking up to today\'s announcement of a higher-specced V2 probably won\'t come as a huge surprise. Nevertheless, whereas the J2 was frustratingly incremental compared...

If you\'ve been put off by the small sensors in Nikon\'s 1 System, then there\'s nothing to change your mind here. We\'re looking at a revamped but still tiny CX sensor, this time with the resolution bumped up to 14 megapixels (instead of 10) -- a move...
