Oh come on. This thing is an expensive dud. No average person is going to buy one of these for $800.00. Most people take pictures with a cell phone now that would be targeted by this. Nikon is in the dark ages with this thing.

Nikon hasn't made a decent P&S type camera since the Coolpic 990. One of the best cameras ever made.

This is the blind spot all the critics on this forum miss. Do any of you go to retail stores? There are displays for the Nikon 1 everywhere that sell electronics. Big displays in Best Buy, Target, etc... Where I see it promoted the least is "traditional" camera stores. If someone doesn't live online I actually have a hard time buying something like a m4/3 camera. I see some nice displays sometimes for the NEX system. But I see a lot of fancy professional looking displays for the Nikon 1. I was amazed by the huge display they had at target.

I'll very interested in Nikon's next quarterly report, but I wouldn't be surprised if they sell a lot of these.
