Re: The Nikon 1 problems

One year after the beginning of this threat I did order a nikon v1, less than half price  the camera originally  had.

Actually my V1 was cheaper than the canon s110.

The lens had an issue. It got locked in the contracted position.

I just took 2 pictures outdoors and a couple of pictures indoors.

Outdoors: Very good color accuracy.

Indoors .Artificial light. Not good color accuracy. Camera does choose low shutter speed ( 1/10 ). Pictures get blurred.

Viewfinder : Very Good. Awesome. The viewfinder I was used to was an optical viewfinder. Pentamirror.

V1 viewfinder is DELUXE.

Another bad thing : In my small canon sx220hs the LCD the changes in exposure  we do in the camera.

One does decrease exposure: Screen does get darker.

No so in the nikon.

LCD screen never changes at least in default settings.

We increase exposure or decrease.., we set different shutter speed..., camera LCD does remain the same.

After each shot we can see the  picture taken as it was shot ( darker or brighter according to exposure compensation we choose).

Surprising how  lens button that does unlock the zoom did not work well.

After all the camera is a Nikon.

I checked where the cameras was made : Made in China.
