Some V1 prototype accessories that never made it to market

It's a shame Nikon did not settle on the V2 design from the beginning, because now we will not be seeing any more accessories for the V1 body, (other than lenses of course). Here are photos of some of those prototype accessories for the V1, that will never be.

I don't know who would want to use their camera to project images on a wall, but this thing could do it.

This video accessory kit includes an articualted LCD that fits in the assessory port.

I think a ring flash would be more desirable for still  macro photography

I don;t know what Nikon was thinking with the design of this video light. It looks cool though!

Another video light and also an interesting microphone design.

This silicone protective case for the J1 seems like a good idea, but Nikon did not think so, evidently.

Some colors did not make the cut. Maybe next year?
