The one thing about your N1?

What one thing...just the one thing, is it that you rate above all others in your Nikon 1?

It's just interesting seeing how others use and appreciate different facets of their camera. Remember: just one.

For me it's the quality for the size.

+1 - Not only fast, but amazingly accurate when shooting objects moving very quickly!

Re: The one thing about your N1?

For me it's the auto exposure in 90% of situations, most of the time the only thing I have to adjust is the EV.

Re: The one thing about your N1?

For me it is the ability to take high quality images completely silently.  Many compact cameras can have the shutter 'sound' turned off, but the results are not of sufficient quality.

Re: The one thing about your N1?

Hmm.   Probably have to say 'crop factor'.    Low weight is handy, but I have smaller point-n-shoots for that.   The FT-1 adapter gives me unique capabilities for shooting wildlife.   Stick a 300F4 on there and I have effective 810F4 that I can easily carry (and pack, and afford).  Stick an 80-400g on there, and I have even more reach, plus VR and zoom.

Re: The one thing about your N1?

I bought my J1 for many reasons. Impossible to pick just one.

1.) For the price, the lenses are of great quality. The 10-30 may be the weakest, but for a kit lens it is better than all the other SLR kit zooms I've had.

2.) Size and weight. My J1, three lenses, two batteries and a couple accessories weight in at ~2.2 pounds including the small bag I carry it all in.

3.) The camera focuses and operates fast.

Here's my little kit on the scale. My first vacation with it (to FLA), was a treat as it didn't weight me down or get in the way much. This isn't much larger than a large P&S carry case.

Build Quality, IQ, the ability to use F lenses with FT-1 that is when it arrives!

Re: I like...

...the BUILD QUALITY, FAST focus, EXCELLENT IQ for such a small, compact camera. I call it my "mini DSLR". Sorry but that's more than one  

BTW...I have the N1 V1.

Re: The one thing about your N1?

Interesting. I see so many people who seem to enjoy the camera primarily for the extreme and accessible telephoto, I juste xpected that to come up more. But I suppose, where all that length going to get you if you can't focus quick.

My Nikon V1 = the fluidity of its use.  Everything goes effortlessly and intuitively.
