It is a nice picture made with the wrong camera.
From the hands up to the room door, reflected by the mirror everything is sharp.It is possible to check the room door safety, but the eyes are blured by the glasses lenses reflections.
Small sensors are not suitable for this kind of picture, even using higher focal length, then the aperture is not enough to make DOF shallow.
This is about the same focal length as the 18.5mm f1.8. which could have been under ISO 200 in this light. I think any Nikon 1 owners would want that lens for indoor shots like this.
Looks good for ISO 800 on a 1" sensor. Honestly, an older DSLR wouldn't look any better, so we've come along way in sensor tech.
coming from this sensor - this is not bad at all - it actually look decent and I'm surprised @ ISO 800 - the noise level is very acceptable.
Well my S100 has less noise than this at the same ISO and not much more smearing. Oh and the sensor is quite a bit smaller.
Hi, photofan1986 can you show me a picture?
Here are two examples in my gallery: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/9269313465/photos/2185912/img_3922http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/9269313465/photos/2377793/img_1912
@photofan:S100 and other compacts with a small sensor (1/7", 1/63" or smaller) cannot generate the same amount of details as Nikon 1 -- no way. They may do great noise reduction but the same time the details are wiped away. See here DPReview's ISO 800 and ISO 1600 test results of Nikon J1 vs. S100, G15 and E-PL3:
Nikon V2 should have even greater image quality. It seems to be able to handle noise better at ISO3200 than famous Sony RX100.
I'm not arguing: of course, the bigger sensor can do a better job balancing noise and detail, but I'm just saying I would be expecting somewhat more from a sensor that is quite a bit bigger and a much bigger camera.
