p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nikon V1 is not easy to dismiss


Nikon V1 with 10mm f2.8.

Nikon V1 could become my landscape camera because of its small sensor (great dof) and a very pleasing slide-film look (very fine grain-like noise at even ISO 100) -- thanks to Aptina sensor.

very nice! The V1 does produce some nice results. Some folks discount it way too easily.

It is an all rounder, I like the images it produces. For street photography its only shortcoming is the forced image review after each shot.

Great exposures, did you let it do its thing or take some control over the exposures?

The first shot I used spot metering with manual exposure, the second one I used center-weighted with -1 ev but still there are some clipped highlights on the shop clothing display.

The Matrix metering in V1 like all Nikons is very good, but the problem is that it takes a few seconds to adjust to the light, so I use center-weighted instead with exposure compensation.

very nice, I am thinking about picking up a used V1, mostly for family photos and times I don't want to lug a DSLR around.

This is what I did. Good little camera, that everyone can use. My daughter (11years old) likes it. Impressive image quality and the meter is excellent.


I just wish it had better manual controls and the auto iso used higher shutter speeds (or would let you choose).

The auto review doesn't bother me. You can turn off the display by hitting the button, and the evf still turns on when going to your eye. After you take the photo, the back lcd won't come on. Combine that with the silent shutter, lots of depth of field, and makes a great spy camera!

Correct. Great place to test a new camera.

I learned the EVF trick and in fact I also learned to put a piece of tape on EVF sensor and leave the LCD off. I never use the LCD.

If you want high shutter speed use shutter priority.

If you don't mind the J1 (slightly less features than the V1) you can pickup a refurb with 10-30 lens from Cameta for $260 right now.

I think I might prefer the viewfinder of the V1 for outside shooting.
could anyone that has used either of these cameras speak about this?

At ISO 3200.

High ISO NR is disabled but still the noise looks processed, or its just that the sensor in this camera has a very fine noise, which looks like film grain.







At 100% compared to ISO 100 (on the left).

I'm interested in 18.5mm but 11-27mm is one of the smallest zoom lens ever made and I think it can be useful especially when there is nothing to protect the sensor from dust during lens changing.

V1 noise structure makes for grainy looking B&W.

I just bought one of these with the 10-30 and the 10 prime. $299 for the kit is really hard to pass up!

Loving it so far. Fantastic build, great EVF and very pleasing images!
