Nikon V1 rocks for me
Jan 21, 2012

In leiu of DPR's review:
Everything in the "pro"column is what counts for me (IQ, AF, EVF etc)
most things in the "con"I couldn't care less about (no filter effects,
no in - camera RAW conversion, hey thats why I shoot in RAW and use lightroom).
As far as design - I love it compared to the quasi retro feel, and as far as handling - the V1 has enough bulk and heft to feel secure whilst the small size makes it easy to carry one in one hand ( what I couldnt with my d90).
As far as changing shooting modes, ISO,focus mode: although missing a dedicated control its extremely easy and quick to change settings even on "the go"and in the middle of shooting.
Of course I have ideas to make it more user friendly especially if one prefers manual controls.
A perfect camera? ain't no such thing , not in this price range, not even the M9 . Well maybe the D4 but that's a different story altogether.
