Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon 1 V1 Compact System Camera with 10-30mm Lens Kit - White (10.1MP) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
After hours of debating which camera to buy, I impulse bought a V1 without much consideration, due to the amazingly low price as of April 2013. The camera is great for photography amateurs like me, as it is basically just a top of the range point-and-shoot, meaning you get great quality photos with virtually every shot.
No flash? No problem! But then again I haven't been trying to take pictures at night, so maybe it's just suited to my needs.
The camera also offers the usual detailed photographic controls, which are easily accessible, although take time to actually set, as it all is done via the menu (no buttons for them), and other cool features such as slow motion.
HD video is pleasant, and acceptable for amateur filming, but it's marginally less attractive than the likes of the DSLRs, but at this price, I am not complaining!
Would recommend for anyone looking for portability and ease of shooting.
