Nice and compact!
1

The Nikon 1 S1 is a bit smaller and lighter than the J1 and the 11-27.5mm kit lens is very sharp even to the edges. The camera allows me to take clear photos indoors under available light unlike my compact camera does. I like the extra features for stills and video including adjustable audio recording levels. Autofocus is fast and spot on even with the 18/1.8 lens wide open.

The first thing I would recommend out of the box is to set photo rendering to neutral and fine tune the sharpness, contrast and saturation to your liking. For video, turn wind noise reduction off otherwise the sound will lack bass.

On the negative side, the camera really should have a grip of some sort.
