Nikon 1 V1 - Nikon they are on to something!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon 1 V1 Compact System Camera with 10-30mm Lens Kit - Black (10.1MP) 3 inch LCD (Camera)
Of all the compact system cameras this Nikon V1 is worth a very serious consideration.
This is an ideal go-to camera when you are going on photo walk about, holiday or off to a function when you dont want a bulky DLSR.
The quality of results from the camera are nothing short of superb. Great detail is produced straight from the camera and what is more produces stunning A3 prints!
To have the ability to make a movie and take images at the same time is unique and a very useful tool to have.
And here is the secret of this camera - By buying the FT-1 adapter it will allow you to use your Nikon lenses (F mount - Dx and Fx) if you have some, with this camera!
Ignore the negative comments of the crop factor sensor being at 2.7 in the Nikon V1 - compared to other compact system cameras such as the Sony Nex series - the sensor gets all the detail you will need, with great natural colours and it has a viewfinder! In my opinion a very important feature overlooked by many compact system manufacturers. When you have a screen only camera you just cant see the image on a bright sunny day! Believe me I've been there...
I have used both (Nex3 and Nikon V1 ) now and would buy the Nikon 1 V1 version every time over the Sony or other compact system cameras.
Build quality, lens quality and the amazing back of additional lenses is nothing short of stunning as you would expect with a quality camera manufacturer...
