Hey DP Review, are you adding RED in you lists of cameras? Do you plan to start reviewing these cameras? With Canon releasing their camera, and the EOS beig able to do 4k in the future, videography seems to blend more and more with what you are doing.
It's definitely a great format you are using, I'd like to be able to read about these cameras without going somewhere else.
Charly Diaz Azcue: Seems to have a decent output quality but man the design is pretty ugly
Charly, not sure if you noticed, but it's not really ugly, it's more like Fugly...
mike kobal: it looks like a hand held vacuum cleaner :D
True... but seriously - they probably spend millions on research and development and they can't hire a starving industrial design student to do a simple, minimalistic box that one just can't hate?
This is true to to all camera manufacturers. Recent Fuji X are probably the only exception.
Juraj Lacko: I cant help it but I don't like the way this camera looks. Sorry sony, try again.
Manufacturers do all this innovations inside, but exterior design is still the same boring one. And a better plastic/metal shell seems easier to manufacture than a 24mp sensor - 24 that I really could not care less about.
Just do something cool like Fuji X10, charge $100 more if you need to, and I am getting one. Until then, don't even bother releasing new stuff.
Maybe it's just me, no idea...
arhmatic: Why is everyone making Continuous Shooting and AF Tracking a HUGE feature?Trying to cover up all other shortcomings?
I can't ever remember using Continuous Shooting... EVER - and I am a Nikon SLR AND P&S user for just too many years... I'd be VERY curious to see a poll on how many of us are REALLY using that, at least once a month.
I can guess who they were targeting, but demographics are TINY. Besides, this is what SLRs are for. Fail, no matter how you look at it.

Video reviews are great, but nothing to go crazy about. Glad to see you are catching up with other sites. Engadet has been doing more comprehensive reviews for quite long.Sober is good, but too sober harms. And something is really odd with the sound - as I am sure everyone has noticed by now.
AIRSCRIBE: Wow...so many flames by so many people who've never seen one, let alone used one...
For this shooter, the V1 *could* be an exemplary partner to my DSLR and lenses...but in general, despite all the angst and criticism, my bet is that the people for which these bodies will really hold appeal don't come to or read sites like this -- let alone worry about uninformed opinions of people with no experience using the bodies...
Time will tell -- and timing this to give the market something all-new for Christmas/Hanukkah 2011 ain't exactly the act of dumb people...
So...gonna give it some time in the market, get my hands on one to demo and make a decision based on reality...an unusual concept, admittedly, but one that's worked well in the past...
Why so suprised? It's not about what the Nikon 1 is, it's more about what is not. Or about how high the expectations were from Nikon users, most of them SRL owners.
If this came from smaller brands, it would have been forgiven and forgotten.
Bokeh is allright... nothing extraordinary. And yes, I know it's wide angle, where bokeh is not that deep. But it's kind of missing those light circles I enjoy seeing at some other 1.8 lenses. I'd still get it for a bit less.
arhmatic: Don't like, don't buy?
It's not that easy Nikon. People are just ANGRY. We are talking about years of pointless waiting.Many are faithful Nikon fans.
I have a seven year old D70. Really hoping to upgrade this year.You just made my decision easier. NEX 7 will be!
I have not commented on dpreview in years. but this is just too much...
By "upgrage" --- numbers and specs are the last thing I care about...
What about an upgrade in portability (like NEX), style (like x-100) or functionality - with less menus and more external dials. Even the P7100 has more dials than many SLRs.
"Upgrade" to most people means getting the newer camera in the same series, or above. Basically, better numbers. But conceptually, it's not that different.
CameraLabTester: The General Manager of the R&D Department has ONE MONTH to come up with a better design...
Yes, it will be a total recall...
Forget this announcement was ever made.Don't need a month to decide. I think we are all set.
Sure, any newer slr is better. but...
- I do not expect a downgrade in controls. Nikon 1 barely has any externals. Sony NEX 7 proved it's possible.
- good design. look at Fuji or Olympus Pen. I am not getting anything that looks like a clay model mockup.
- 2.7x, 1.5x - don't care. Whatever you use, make sure you take full advantage of it. A 72mm filter, such as the new 10-100, is considered good sized even for FX. And we are talking about 2.7x here. This system is just not as portable as intended.
How come the 10-100mm lens has a 72mm filter?
The 18-200mm DX has the same 72mm.
In theory, the 10-100mm should be close to half the size, given the crop ratio.Another fail of the system?I am not confused anymore, this time I am angry!
Don't like, don't buy?
Hey, do you want to see a photo if a guy who recently lost his job?

Paul Guba: Now that I have hardly examined the 28 random images of a brand new camera I have never actually used or even seen in real life I am now fully capable of making educated decision that I will share with all the world. Further more my total lack of experience in testing cameras and the limited experience I have in using my own qualifies me as fountain of information.
Here is the one iota of information I have been able to extrapolate from the nearly 300 post. No of you know anything. Since you have no practical experience with the camera you are simply guessing. Lie to yourself and the rest of us if you need to but the reality is none of have any experience with this camera.
I assume you have no practical experience with the camera either. So how can you tell we are wrong?
