Leandros S: "One big disappointment is that neither lens has Vibration Reduction (Nikon's term for image stabilization) built-in. While this isn't a huge deal on the fast 10mm prime, I was surprised to see that the 11-27.5mm zoom lacked this important feature."
Hmm... let's think... when surrounded by massive volumes of water, is my camera still shaky? Actually, no. Let's think again... if I had loose VR lens elements in my system, might it lead to shutter shock? Quite possibly yes. So should I be including VR? I'll let you answer that one.
He wants VR on a shock-proof camera. I am interested on how they would be able to engineer that.
JackM: I applaud Nikon for the concept, but the price is too high for me. If the body is going to be simpler (no video, fewer bells, whistles, frills) it should cost less than a D610.
@nnowak Fewer features also mean fewer lines of code in the firmware which means fewer chances of software bugs.
imbimmer: The latest round of 1/1.7" and 2/3" digicams such as the X10, P7700, G15, etc all have way much better IQ than the Nikon 1 series, how does he explain that?
@imbimmer: you forget that the smaller sensors still has to be magnified 4x compared to the 1" sensor when viewing (or printed) at the same size.
rolandct: 2 Problems with using the 8 GB version:1) Slow transfer, however I usually am just transfering select JPGs not every pic so it's usually not a big deal
2) Geo-tagging is almost completely useless since it's based on WiFi. I'm not sure if even one of the thousands I've taken have been tagged right.
If at least 2 is fixed I would consider upgrading, but I doubt it since that would require a GPS receiver.
The 8GB version is only class 6 while this is Class 10 which should be 10MBps minimum (vs the 6MBps on class 6)
vivtorio: Maximum shutter speed 1/4000 sec!?!No, thanks!Better D800 or A99.
obeythebeagle: I am amazed at the quality of the images from my 8 meg droid cam, and it has a tiny sensor. This camera is a revelation, with a relatively large sensor, Zeiss lens and many megapixels. For a cell phone, the posted pictures are fantastic. Who wouldn't want one if you were without a dslr? I will however wait for a droid model.
@vlad: I doubt Apple would make a phone like this. It's too bulky for their taste. :)
