Nikon 1 V1 10.1 MP HD Digital Camera System with 10-30mm VR 1 NIKKOR Lens (Black)

  • I got the Nikon 1 V1 kit with the 10-30mm and the 30-110mm. I planned to use the camera as a back-up of sort to my larger Nikon DSLR\'s. I wanted something that i could stick in a small camera bag and use when i need to travel light. What interested me most about the Nikon 1 system was the size of the camera/lens combo, the autofocus system, the EVF, and the FT1 adapter which would allow me to use my Nikon F mount glass.I also tried the Sony Nex-5n (  Sony NEX-5N 16.1 MP Compact Interchangeable Lens Touchscreen Camera With 18-55mm Lens (Silver) ). I was interested in the Nex mostly due to the larger sensor and the tilt screen. To make a long story short i ended up keeping the Sony Nex-5n.I would have to say that the Sony won for me because of the following reasons;1. The image quality. While the V1 is no slouch, i found the extra couple of stops of low light performance i saw in the Nex to be an advantage to me. While the autofocus in the Nikon may have outweighed the low light advantage of the Sony, i felt that if i need something that can track a bird in flight i am going to grab my DSLR anyways. For someone that doesn\'t own a DSLR the autofocus system of the Nikon would probably be more advantageous than the lowlight ability of the Nex.2. The tilt screen. While i was looking forward to the EVF in the Nikon i found that i got more functionality from the tilt screen of the Nex. I was nice to be able to explore angles that i normally don\'t consider while looking through the viewfinder of a DSLR. Also, the EVF just didn\'t appeal to my eyes that much. After looking through the OVF of a D700 the little EVF isn\'t that pretty! Also, i can add an EVF to the Sony but i can\'t add a tilt screen to the Nikon.3. The little scene mode features that i thought i would never use. One in particular, the \"Hand-Held Twilight\", was handy. While on a flight i tried taking a few shots of the city lights below with both cameras. It is not an easy shot to take even with VR. Due to the slow shutter speed needed with the slow glass of both kits i couldn\'t get a good sharp shot with either...until i tried the Hand-Held Twilight mode on the Sony. I wouldn\'t say that my shots were perfect but man they were great! The sweeping panorama mode is pretty neat too, especially for someone that doesn\'t feel like spending the time in post processing to stitch multiple photos together.So in summary:I can recommend the Nikon 1 V1. I am giving the Nikon V1 4 stars because i felt that it was a great kit. For some reason i just seemed to prefer the sony. I found myself grabbing for it more than i did the Nikon while i was walking around with both cameras with me. The only reason i didn\'t give the Nikon 5 stars was the controls. I think that the they should have offered more customizable controls and more external controls on the V1. I think the setup works for the J1 which may appeal more to someone looking to step up from a point and shoot but the V1 should have been treated a bit differently.
  • First of all, Amazon - please limit reviews to those that actually own what they are \"reviewing\". I consider Amazon reviews a good resource but do not like having to wade thru the worthless gripes of non-owners that better belong on camera forums.I am a certified professional photographer and use Nikon and Leica \"full frame\" equipment for my commercial and portraiture work. However, for my daily walks I often want to use a good compact camera which was a Lumix LX5. I have used a few images from this camera for a gallery I sell in but find that in the large print sizes (20\" or so) the small sensor just does not quite get it. So I have been looking for a better compact camera and was pleased to see the Nikon 1 system with a somewhat larger sensor. After reading some reviews I decided the weight, size, and lack of control did not make sense for me. But after reading an open minded and knowledgeable review by Rob Galbraith I changed my mind. As to the size compared to larger sensor cameras he actually compares them with lenses\' on the body, unlike other reviews, and it shows that it is indeed very compact in comparison. He also compares the simplicity to Apple design, which being an Apple computer convert, caught my attention. Some reviewers confuse the simplicity of the control layout with lack of control and that is a false assumption. The black body is also a very nice, simple, elegant, designI bought the 2 zoom lens kit from Amazon, and liked it so much I bought the 10mm lens a few days later. I was even lucky enough to find a flash.Some initial thoughts:- Yes it much bigger than my LX5 but not too big as a larger sensor system would be for my use.- Focus is at least as fast as my Nikon D3 and fast glass, and exposure is almost always right on.- I use the camera in aperture mode, and it is very fast and easy to change aperture, and you can do it while looking thru the viewfinder. I prefer it to a dial.- The menu is very well done and I like that it stays where you last used it. For instance, if you just changed the ISO, if you want to change again, just hit the menu button and you are at the ISO line, no searching thru the whole menu again.- Preliminary thoughts on lense\'s - the 10-30 is soft in the corners wide open, but have not tried it since the recent firmware upgrade. The 10mm is great! The 30-110 is fun - such a long range in such a small lens. It seems quite sharp but not much testing yet.- Just got the flash today. More good thinking by Nikon - has bounce and rotates and is light as it requires no batteries. Exposures made inside, bounce and direct, look nice and even. It of course will take down the charge on the camera battery but one of the good things about the \"chunky\" body is it has room for a large battery- Having the flexibility to change lens on a compact camera is super. Today I had a lens on the camera and a lens each in of the pockets of the light jacket I was wearing for my walk and the lens in the pockets were so light they were barely noticeable.- Looking forward to the adapter for my Nikkor 50 1.4 and 85 1.4- Great camera for fast, from the hip, shooting. The LCD can easily be turned off, the viewfinder is off until you bring it to your eye, so you can leave the camera power on for a fast grab shot without draining the battery- Lenses do not go on with the quality feel I get from the D3, the 10mm even feels a little rough- Glad that Nikon had the courage to start an all new sensor size - it may not be for everyone but is exactly what I was looking forThat is all for now, will update this review as I learn more about the camera system.
