Compare with (slightly) smaller sensor (older generation sensor) from pro-sumer digicam such as G12 or LX5 of course this Nikon 1 system win, slightly. (please comparing the pic. yourself at imaging resource)

Compare to the same price range, the same "lifestyle" target market product, the new released Sony NEX-5N, then there's a lot different, stark different. Well, not surprise at all because what, the sensor on NEX5N is much much bigger than V1/J1.

The only small sensor that made a different in the past was from Fujifilm SuperCCD, and that with limitations, of course. But the newer design, dynamic range was improved and the noise was handle well. The EXR sensor was actually quite good. The not released yet Fujifilm X-10 would has EXR sensor with slightly bigger sensor than the sensor from F-series. (continue)

There was a reason why (in celluloid term) 35mm format succeed and the 110 format and classic APS format dead. And that medium format has only a few users, not to mention the large format. That's because the 35mm format is the best compromise way of handling, quite reasonable size lens system, and acceptable image quality. The important thing to be considered is also the diffraction effect. The 35mm still somewhat somehow still far in that limitation (film and size format)

In digital era, the format has change, in the battle of full frame 35mm, the APS size sensor, and 4/3 size format. The diffraction effect depend on the resolution and the quality of the lens, but the limitations is still there, you just can't denied physic principles.
Notice how 4/3 lens is smaller, but only slightly smaller. And the bright lens and wide lens still big, not tiny.

The EXR sensor with its limitations already has low noise at high iso capability (the F-series), so the X-10 would worth wait, IMO.

What I just can't help to question is, why you have to embrace the smaller sensor (albeit. worse high iso noise vs. the newer APS sensor - not that from D80 or worse, from that old full frame Kodaks-LOL) while you just can't have much smaller lens system. Haven't you saw that 10-100mm (equiv. 28-280mm) lens? With 72mm filter size! How matter small V1/J1 bodies, but with that enormous lens attached, don't you think that ridiculous? Or attached that enormous AFS 300mm f2.8 nikkor on them! mooted the point of being small and "compact".

How about ultrawide lens (zoom or fixed)? Of course you'll need ultrawide and or wide lenses! And to compensated the high noise, you'll want brighter lens, of course max. aperture 2.8 or bigger are more preferable). Guess what, those wide lens gonna be big, so again, being compact and small body would be pointless.

ezradja: Those who claim this J1 / V1 image is good enough to compete with other EVIL should check their eyes or stop drink that kool aid. Tried the imaging resource comparison between J1 and G12 (yes prosumer G12) and its evident that the bigger sensor slightly win and the smaller sensor (G12) lose. Compare the J1 image to the same price range (and size) NEX-5N and oh boy, stark different in image quality, dynamic range, noise etc. This arguably proved that the bigger the sensor, the better the image quality, but why bother with smaller sensor if the body and the lenses are similar in size? The argument that smaller sensor would effected the body and lenses should not be mention because of physics. You just can't make ultrawide lenses small, if you want ultra wide in Nikon 1 system you at least should make 5mm and of course with bright f (1.8-2), guess what, that lens gonna be big, well enormous to be precise.

So my argument is, why you have to have small sensor system if you can't get the body and more importantly, lenses, utterly smaller than the 4/3 or APS size sensors? They probably slightly, very slightly smaller than the bigger sensor but it's really negligible. That 10-100mm f3.5-5.6 lens with 72mm filter size for example, what an enormous lens! And V1 or J1 use that lens would be a joke. Not to mention that AFS 300mm 2.8 attached. Are you havin a laugh?

There's a reason why 50mm lenses is always smaller than the wider lenses with the same max. aperture for the same system. the 24mm lens with f 1.4 always gonna be bigger than 50mm with f 1.4 at the same lens system. For tele it's a slightly different because after 50mm, the more focal range (50 and up) with the same max. aperture get bigger (also the filter size). In medium format (645) the normal lens (80mm) also has the smallest than the wider or the longer (with the same max. aperture). There's some physic principles applied there.

bentheoandrews: Everyone keeps saying "wow, those high ISO photos are excellent for a camera with a small sensor". The thing is, you can get cameras like the Nex 5N with a bigger sensor, that is cheaper and gives much better results at much higher ISO levels.
Also, everyone is talking about ISO and DOF - what about the colour? Am I the only one who thinks the colours, especially the reds (and in particular on the ketchup bottle) look really washed out? And the WB! All the shots look like they were taken through a blue filter!
On its own this might stand up, but next to m4/3 and NEX, this brings too little too late. All the magic tricks it does might be great, but unless the IQ is there it's a bit "fur coat and no knickers".

right, just like this system, once you put zoom lenses (or, as they said they would, put F-mount lenses with adapter) you'll ended up with a big honking package, with tiny sensor and worse ISO 1600 images.

Thomas Hoven: I just upgraded my low-end Nikon SLR system with an Olympus E-PL2 due to the Oly's compact underwater house (I miss my old Nikonos, why did Nikon never release a digital one?). When I found that the Oly took better pictures than the Nikon, I was sold - and bought more Oly lenses. (You may see my simple tests at www.abamas.com/test) It doesn't seem that the Nikon 1 series would have made me act differently today. They seem to be aimed at point-and shooters rather than long-time SLR-folks. I am more curious to see what Nikon will release as a D3 series replacement. Would have been fun though to check how the Nikon 1 would perform in my little test-comparison.

if you read the imaging-resource interviewing Nikon about this system, they actually admitting targeting P&S users not DSLR users. Probably surveyed those "Ginza / Harajuku" style yuppies there.

In reply to:

Tom Cody: It seems to me that DPR is being very biased on the new Nikon 1. If you remember back when the Nex 3/5 first came out, DPR gave them very low scores (65 or 66% I believe), then after a firmware upgrade, the score went up to 70%.

Here are a few quotes from the Nex 3/5 review:

…We weren't impressed with the cameras when we first encountered them but an unexpectedly significant firmware update has dramatically improved the shooting experience for enthusiast users…Where the NEXs really impress is the PASM modes where you can take full advantage of the large, very capable sensor…

Well, the Nikon 1 does not have PASM modes or a large very capable sensor, and no firmware upgrade will ever fix that.

So if DPR uses the same logic and reviews the Nikon V1 from the same perspective as they did the Nex 3/5, then you would logically expect a score <65%.

Don’t count on it, DPR is clearly is biased and I'm betting they will give the Nikon 1 a 70% +

you just don't know how much N pay DP. :) probably very good sums of *censored*

ChrisKramer1: It's worth pointing out that no-one seemed too upset about the Fuji X10 using a 2/3 sensor.

because: 1. Fujifilm has already released the big one, X100
2. The body style and material still desirable
3. EXR sensor has proved to be quite good on smaller sensors (F series, X-10 has twice as big I presume with those F-series?)
4. has manual knob for everything you need. Not deep on the LCD menu.

CIASpook: A lot of you people are a bunch of crabby camera clowns.

If you don't like the camera, don't get it!! No one is trying to ram a small sensor down your throat. These cameras are for a different market. There ARE people that don't care for the typical compact cameras but don't want SLRs. This camera will meet the needs of those photographers.

Get your heads out of your rear ends and grow up!!

The problem is that many of us waiting for Nikon released some decent (big sensor) mirror-less camera, hence those rumors run wild a few months (years!) back. The Nikon stock also has a positive effect because of these rumors just a few days ago.

We imagine that, after Fujifilm X-100, Nikon has something better in its sleeve to compete with the likes (non-interchangeable big sensor digicam and/or another MILC, 4/3 mount or NEX/Samsung). To our surprise, Nikon decided not to granted anyone wishes and came out with a "Pentax Q competitor" instead. BUT, Nikon didn't admitted that this is "toy-ish" system camera just like Pentax, but instead sugar coated with marketing language: for enthusiast, lifestyle bla bla bla. This system probably has some R&D surveyed based on those in Ginza or Harajuku, Japanese spesific yuppies lifestyle, etc. Not for the rest of the world.

kewlguy: Hold on, I could hear the Canon guys LTAO - wait until they see Canon mirrorless using a sensor with 3.0x crop factor!!

RedFox88, stop the bashing people that bashing this system, you embarrassing yourself defending the fail system. I can understand if N fanboys defend good reliable system or N DSLR which I admire myself but this Nikon 1 system is DoA just like Pentax Q. Actually if both priced lower (lower than 500$) probably not a fail but you just can't justified 900$ price-tag for small sensor mirrorless camera body with slow zoom lens. For example: X-10 has similar (arguable) sensor size with non interchangeable (quite bright) zoom lens and EXR sensor that reputably has better dynamic range and low noise on high iso with lower price (at 700$ estimated) with desireably retro look. Nikon goes different route, risky route with this 1 system, probably has niche market on some Ginzas and Harajukus girls and alike but not the world I afraid.

MaikeruN: Cut the interchangeable lenses. Cut the fancy 60fps, the special effects. Cut the world's fastest AF. DON'T EVEN GIVE IT AN APSC. Nikon could have just made a compact with a fixed 50mm eqv 1.8 prime, give it a couple of dials and a decent evf. BOOM! EVERYBODY HAPPY.

SOMEONE SHOULD DO IT.

yup, x-10 is the closest. but thanks to N the X-10 has justified its price. I though x10 would be priced lower at 500$ but because of this stupid J1/V1 that's pricier, x-10 with its 700$ price-tag seem quite a bargain.

Nikon 1 V1 is the world’s smallest and lightest mirrorless camera with an EVF
Nikon 1 has the world’s shortest shooting time lag
Nikon 1 has the World’s fastest continuous shooting at 10 fps

Thats is Nikon.
You want light, go for this, you want good ther is d3s, you want something in the midle, go for d7000, you got it all

In reply to:

mike_2008: The chances of this poor little camera eating away at m43 and nex market share is remote. It offers little advantage over existing cameras, and is an entirely new system, totally incompatible with standard nikon lenses. What's the point? buy a compact you'd be better off.

let's shall wait for "birger adapter" for E-mount (NEX system) would we? probably come out a few months later though. What is this "birger" lens adapter? you can use autofocus and control the aperture electronically. For EOS and F-mount lenses to E-mount and 4/3 bodies.

mogando668: promising system.... now add

1. ultrawide zoom
2. fast wide/normal/tele prime trio (and *small* size - no stinking NEX-sized primes that's even larger than the body)
3. a 3rd high-end camera body with full manual controls to compete against E-P3 and NEX7
4. F-mount adapter that's seamless and full AF

and we have a winner. the moment the F-mount is out you can get a large chunk of the 30% installed base to consider this over larger sensors.

ultrawide? ultrawide zoom. let's see, if you want 16mm equv. you have to make 16/3= 5mm lens. good luck with that. Oh you want that 5mm lens to be small and pocketable? good luck with that too.
