For the same price: Nikon V1 or Samsung NX1000?


How are you?

I am currently thinking about a new camera.

After selling my gear I am left with only my iPhone 5 to take pictures.

It has served me well, but now I am thinking about buying a camera again.

I currently have my eye on the following two kits:

- Nikon V1 with 10-30 and 30-110

- Samsung NX1000 with 20-50 and 30mm

Both the kits cost the same, at around 400 Euros.

I would like a camera for social occasions, travel, and general walk-about...

Here is what I am thinking:

First thing is the sensor size. Huge difference. One is APS-C with 1.5x crop and the other is CX with 2.7 crop.

The V1 has an EVF which might be good for outdoor use and general shooting experience.

The NX1000 does not have it nor is it an add-on option.

The V1 has Phase-detect AF and Contrast detect.

The NX1000 has only Contrast detect.

Both cameras are part of systems that are in medium stages of development.

If you also count announced lenses like the Nikon 32 1.2 and Samsung 12-24 and 45mm, both systems offer options from wide angle, to tele-photo, to general zooms, to fast primes.

They are not as developed and M43 system, but are nice.

So, based on this, what would be the better choice and why?


Nikon 1 V1 Samsung NX1000
