I Really Like This Camera!

This is a great camera! Good quality, takes good pictures and videos in HD! I have always wanted to invest in a DSLR but I am a little overwhelmed by all the features. I think the Nikon 1 V1 is a good mix between a regular point & shoot and a DSLR. This camera comes with a lens that allows me to zoom and I have the option to exchange to different lenses if I wanted to. It’s great that I can even take pictures while I am on video mode. Most of the time, I use the camera on automatic settings. However, I definitely have the option to play around with the manual setting: shutter speed, aperture, & etc. I can also set the camera to take multiple shots at one instance or put it on the Smart Photo Selector mode, so it selects the best picture (note that this setting takes a couple of seconds before you can take the next shot). The reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the price and also the slight delay in some cases. Otherwise, this is a great camera! Pros: - Great photo and video quality (HD) - Option to replace lenses (not included) - Option to zoom - Feels like as DSLR, but more compact - Quick focus Cons: - A bit expensive - Under certain settings: the shutter speed can be a little slow (ex: Smart photo selector. It’s a great feature though!) - Need to purchase a separate SD card

Nikon V1 with 10-100mm lens

Customer review by Skippy719

I think Nikon does have a unique product here. Two of the main goals were to be able to manage shooting stills and video during the same shoot, and making the camera smaller without given up on quality. No question they were successful. You will always be able to find a camera/camcorder that does better this or that, but the design is such it is easier to shoot both mediums during a single shoot. As a pro shooter, this is what I was looking for from this system. My only disappointment is the 10-100mm designed for shooting video. I think the lens has bugs and needs a couple of good firmware updates to fix. I've tried 2 10-100mm lens now and neither one has worked correctly. The lastest is the shakiness bug when using the much advertised VR system. I must turn the VR off to get any sort of useable video. Not good. I'll return the 10-100mm back again and wait for Nikon to work the bugs out, or just go with the 30-100mm.

Great camera with a few glitches

We bought this camera and lenses to use on a three-week safari, and it met or exceeded expectations. First, it is nice to have the digital viewfinder instead of having to rely on a screen on the back. Most important, images using both the 10-30 and the 30-110 lenses were sharp throughout the focal range, and color rendition was excellent. It is also a great camera for walking around cities, especially using the 10-30mm lens. And the menus are pretty much straightforward and easy to use. We do have a few criticisms, some of which have been mentioned before. It is easy to shift the mode dial (a lock would be nice) and to change the shutter speed in shutter priority mode. And we miss the lack of a "highlights" choice in the playback for the instant feedback on exposure. So far, we haven't needed the flash but will be purchasing one. All in all, a great addition to the Nikon line. Just be careful to monitor the settings.

Nice little camera but could use a firmware update

Customer review by Bob

Bought this camera about 6-7 weeks ago and enjoy shooting with it very much. The autofocus and metering is fast and accurate, almost as fast as my D7000. Battery life is very good. I use it mainly for nature photography while hiking so the small, light format (even with both the 10-30 and 30-110 lenses) is great for that. A firmware update would be nice to be able to program the "F" button for ISO, and/or have a quick menu for faster access to some of the commonly used options buried in the menus (ISO, WB, P, A, S, or M mode, etc). It would be nice to be able to adjust the Auto ISO to shutter speed relationship in P, A, and S mode (faster shutter speed with higher ISO instead of always defaulting to the lowest ISO and slow shutter speed) Would also like to see a wide angle zoom for it, maybe 6-10mm. Overall I'm impressed with it - great color, good dynamic range and well controlled noise levels. And it's fast!

Almost Perfect

Customer review by nmw

Nikon got almost everything perfect except two things Manual Focus and the placement of the camera mode dial. I took this VERY SWEET small camera to Africa on safari, while all my friends were still trying to balance their very heavy, large lens cameras I had already taken the shot which means I caught the leopard in the tree using the powerful 30-110mm which apparently is roughly a 60-220mm. However, when it came to the cheetah behind tall grass the auto focus focused on the grass. It took me a week to figure out how to even get to manual focus because the instructions were hard to follow, maybe this is why they only included a CD of the manual and they did not print it. Once I figured out the manual focus it is counterintuitive and takes about a minute to press all the buttons you need to push to even get to the possibility of focusing. The camera mode wheel is on the side instead of the top, unfortunately this means when you put the camera away it can spin so you need up in a different mode than the last mode. They should have incopporated a locking button. Otherwise, I love this camera.
