Having had SLRs and DSLRs for the last 40 years, (D300 currently) I was looking for something smaller for hiking and informal use. I'd settled on a P7100 as a quality P&S that I could print at least A4 prints from . . . and then the V1 came out! The larger sensor size, similar size and weight pushed me in the V1 direction and the FT1 adapter (to take my other Nikon lenses) convinced me. (I haven't received the FT1 yet but I see it as a much better quality alternative for bird digiscoping). The results so far have been very good; the general speed, autofocus and colour balance is excellent. There is some noise that you'd expect to see from the smaller sensor but it's not 'nasty' noise and the prints I've made are much better than I expected. The menu interface is a bit 'messy' compared with dials but no worse than my old F70 (disliked by all reviewers for that reason at the time but something I quickly got used to). Novices (the apparent target market) may take some getting used to it and 'experts' find the degree of control slightly limiting (I'd have liked auto stepped exposure for HDR photography for instance) but it is a nice package. The 10-30 is good and the 30-110 is even better. The falling price has made it more attractive and with Nikon UK having a cashback offer at the moment. There are cheaper alternatives but this is just what I've been looking for to supplement a DSLR.

I bought this camera as a walk about camera, to use instead of lugging my D700 about. I quickly found I was using far more than the larger camera because of its convenient size and its superb image quality.
When the camera was first released I read some reviews slating its small sensor and quickly dismissed it as a camera for me, however, I saw it in a shop and liked its solid, quality feel. Now I have used it for a while I can say the sensor size doesn't hold it back, the images are superb.
If I shoot in RAW, the camera produces image quality almost as good as my D700 - even up to ISO 3200, the Jpeg's are not quite so good. The camera gives a nice film like quality to its images so I am happy to use it at higher ISO's.
The main advantage the D700 has over the V1 is control over settings and ability to set the camera up exactly the way I like it, as well as responsiveness; the V1 takes a second or 2 between single shots before it allows you to take another shot which can sometimes be a little frustrating.
The lenses are good quality, in hindsight I wouldn't have bothered with the 30-110 because I hardly use it and I could have saved a little money. The 10-30 produces great images that are a little soft in the corners if you look closely. The 30-110 is good for portraits because it blows out the backgrounds. Bokeh on both lenses is pretty good, although, slightly better on the 30-110.
The view finder gives a bright and quite large image, however, I still prefer an optical viewfinder; the main reason being the time it takes to change brightness to match the scene and the quality of the image does not match the screen on the back.

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: 10-30mm Lens
When this camera first came out it was around £1000 with the kit lens a number of reviewers both on photo websites and on here gave it really poor reviews. They highlighted issues with the sensor size, handling and the lenses. I suspect that they were comparing it to high end DSLRs that were about the same price point and on that basis I understand the criticism - this is not a top of the line DSLR.

Fast forward twelve months and the V1 is now selling for £250 with the kit lens, at this price it is the bargain of the year. Firstly the AF system is lightning fast, as good as any DSLR I have used, it rarely hunts and has some really useful features such as the focus tracking which again is as good as any DSLR I have used and keeps any moving subject bang in focus.

Also the image quality is fantastic, yes it only has 10m pixels but as they say it is not about size but what you do with it that counts and my pictures are super sharp. Although you start to see noise creep in above ISO 800 it is well controlled and pictures are still useable right up to ISO 3200 at A4 size. I would also say that any noise that you do get almost has a quality like you used to get with grain on fast films and is actually very pleasing.

Next I will mention the build quality, this has a magnesium shell and chassis, it feels solidly built and all the controls and switches have a quality feel to them, if it was built to be a £1000 camera it shows in this area.

Other things I like are the small size, not just the camera body but also the lenses and low weight - much easier to carry than a full size DSLR and also way the zoom lenses lock and turn the camera off.

My six year old DSLR was due for an update; and so was my camcorder. It was clear the next camera would need to combine high quality stills with digital video. But the big question was whether I should go for a new full sized DSLR, or one of the growing number of high-end compacts. The attraction of the latter was price and portability - and also of having a less attention-seeking camera.

I work in TV, and attended a trade show where I saw the new Nikon J1 and V1. It was love at first sight. I went for the V1 because of its viewfinder, and because the accessories Nikon claimed to have in development seemed more geared to the V1.

Like any new romance, however, there are some things about the relationship that take a bit of getting used to. So here are all the tricky things first:

1. `On' has many meanings. There is an on/off button, there is a shutter release button, there is a video-on button, and the camera is also activated by twisting the lens to shoot mode. But the on/off switch switches off after just 3 minutes; and the permutations of which button trumps which if you just reach for your camera to take a quick shot can drive you mad.

2. It's not a DSLR. This means the viewfinder shows`through the lens' but does not use a mirror to show you exactly what the camera sees. The result is an electronic image of surprisingly poor quality. This is fine for focus but does not represent colour or exposure with any accuracy whatsoever. Happily what you get is always better than what you see.

3. It's really not a DSLR. And this of course means it is very light. Getting a steady holding position for shooting video is challenging.

4. The printed manual is rubbish.
