Camera for toddlers, Nikon 1 experience? Care to share your wisdom?


I own an Oly XZ-1, which I very much like, but as there are a number of moments the XZ-1 fails me, I am in the market for another camera.

My main 'subject' is my daughter ~ 18 months old.

Can any J1/V1 owner share its conclusions about it w.r.t. pictures of children?

How does the camera holds inside the house? Is this your primary 'inside the house' camera or do you have a bigger camera for these occasions?

(This may sound silly to some but for me it is not.) Does the Face-Recognition software works well? (I am disappointed with the XZ-1 face-recognition).

If you had to chose a system today, would you still buy Nikon's 1 or m43? (honest question, don't mean to troll anyone).

Any young parent owning both a V1/J1 and an E-M5, which way would you recommend me to go? E-M5 or V1/V2?

(please lets ignore any devaluation arguments, if I wanted to invest money I would be looking at stock options, not cameras).

Thanks in advance for any answers!
