  • newegg Revolutionary new Nikon 1 system breaks visual barriers Today, all it takes is a single imaging device to capture and share every moment of an incredible and connected life. Nikon brings an evolution in imaging technology, starting with a newly developed Nikon CX-format super high-speed AF CMOS sensor that powers every capture. Ensure image precision through the new, compact interchangeable lens system featuring image stabilization (VR) and superior fast and quiet autofocus motors built on the NIKKOR heritage of optical excellence.
  • newegg Focus that's as fast as you Not a moment is missed with a camera that keeps up with you! Always on the go, you know moments worth sharing can happen all the time.

  • newegg Share a richer experience There will be moments when you're recording a great movie and an opportunity to grab an amazing photo comes along. Capture both at the same time! Start your movie recording with a touch of a button. See that great still? Hit the shutter even during record mode.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall and easy to use.

Pros: Auto focus is fast and very accurate. The lens is nice for general use and some professional use. this camera is better for novice photographers that want professional quality photos.... You can go on youtube to see comparison and tips on how to use this camera.

The photos are sharp and have good colors.. This camera does really well in low light... The best feature I enjoy about this camera is the Video at 1080p and and the auto focus is great! This camera well built and solid.... it has many more features, but go to youtube to check it out.. search for Nikon v1 or j1

Cons: The grip is lacking a bit.. This camera is designed for novice or photographers that like simple controls.. it can do more through the menu interface if you really want to control the aperture, white balance, manual focus.. all through menu.. no through the buttons or dials..

Other Thoughts: I have a Nikon d5100, and I use a high end sony cyber shot, and a t3.. this Nikon v1 is my favorite.. The j1 is the same camera without the view finder...

4 out of 5 eggsgood camera

Pros: Fantastic and clean image quality. Excellent focus.

Cons: price

Other Thoughts: First off Let me say this. I do not own the camera but I did test it out while my co workers were setting up the camera display. This camera takes GREAT photos. The Lenses on these cameras provide more apertures than a regular digital camera. i would recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a small but GREAT camera. I personally, because of the price would actually buy a professional camera. That's because I have been buying digital cameras for the last 11 years and have had so many that I have reached the point to where I know I will never be satisfied until I get a professional camera.
