dgc4rter: I can't see, for the life of me, why anyone would want to buy this in favour over a D3100 which is cheaper, accepts any current Nikon lenses and isn't that much larger and heavier. It's also got a 14 MP APS-C sized sensor. It sits better in the hand and has an optical viewfinder as well as a tilt screen.

There's a few technological advances with the AF and video but nothing truly deal breaking. And are "soccer mums" going to be bothered about switching lenses. They may as well get the D3100 so their hubby's collection of Nikon glass will fit on it.

Sorry Nikon. I love their DSLRs, having both the D700 and D7K and I know I'm not the intended market, but this 1 series will not be a market leader by a long chalk. It might find its way into the heart of Nikon die-hards and the "more money than sense and style" Porsche Cayenne owners but unless they could have brought out a Sony NEX-7 beater, they should stick to what they're good at.

How about 1080/60i for slow-motion video? If your a HDSLR shooter, this would make a good b-camera due to the variety of frame rates over the D3100.

Mloscalzo91: I mean, I don’t know how to feel about this. Are the productions and release date of these cameras really such a big deal that we have to lose sleep over it?

I could be completely clueless here and not thinking about this from a smarter point of view and if that is the case, someone please explain why this is a big deal when the flood is clearly going to do more damage than that to the camera industry.

@fad Maybe you shouldn't be on a camera review website then. Why not BBC or Reuters? You're so concerned with the flood victims you decided to stop by DPR?

This is a digital camera website. Nobody is minimizing the impact of the flood on the people of the region, just trying to inform customers.

A Bull: To me the real question is its Dynamic Range figures. 18mp may be a bit low but I used to have the old Canon 2.74mp & myself & all the worlds other pros where doing full double page spreads.

This camera is head & shoulders above any other full frame 35mm sensor in DR & cleanness of the image.

Because canon RAW format is the best this means that you can increase the MP in PS with very low loss in quality. Plus can recover badly exposed images far better.

With is the merge of the 1 range. Canon SLR will soon all be FF 35mm

Canon are planning a whole new product line & mount call the G-mount this will allow for sensors up to sizes a fraction bigger than the Leica S2.

With all new lenses.

This is due to the fact that even the mark 3 lenses can not with a 35mm mount resolve res over approx 44mp.

With a 1.5X mount & bigger glass & sensors canon will be able to push easily up to 80Mp to start.

So this will be the studio - medium format camera.

Dynamic Range & Clean Image? The Nikon D3X is still the king of DR and the D3s of low noise. The will not change any time soon, until perhaps the D4.

How about denial?

Graystar: DPReviews image viewing system is soooooo tedious! Can't you make something that doesn't require so many clicks?

In any case...alright, so the V1 images look like they came from a P&S. No surprise there.

Whenever you have to support older browsers like IE 6, it's hard.

You don't need to buy this lens. This lens with the power zoom is mainly for video. The normal kit zoom is much less $$$, albiet not as good for video. Honestly, many videographers shoot with with primes w/ fast apertures.

Which P&S is that? I'll buy it. And don't say the XZ-1, because it's not the case.

Some of them look really good. The profile image of the girl for example. The homeless guy, the statue of the astronaut. Impressive. Good work. Thanks.

Camp Freddy: Crumby image quality.

"not aimed at enthusiasts" say Nikon

Who pays this kind of money and ISN*T an enthusiast??

No DOF control? I have DOF control with my XZ-1 because it has a fast lens. But turn my XZ-1 up past ISO 400 and the noise is horrible. Try to shoot anything that moves with the XZ-1. If you're lucky 1 out of 10 will be sort of sharp. That's why people will spend $$$ for this camera. And for the cost-conscious, there is the J1.

In reply to:

bryanbrun: If the Nikon V1 had a F2.0 kit lens that allowed for DOF control, then it might have a chance.

The Nikon kit lens is 10-30mm at 3.5 max aperture on a tiny little sensor. This is weak, weak, weak.

Who wants to spend $900 dollars on a camera and end up with a grand total of 20mm field of view control with an aperture of 3.5 which allows for no DOF control?

No one. There is no market for the Nikon V1.

Nikon needs to release a real kit lens, without it the camera can't even compete with XZ-1, LX5, so just forgot about competing with the artistic control that the m4/3 and NEX allow.

It's funny how that "tiny little sensor" is not only competing, but except for the G3, exceeding the performance of your m43 camera.

Reilly Diefenbach: Reilly's ranking at 1600 raw:
Nex
Nikon
G3
Oly trailing badly
Well done, Nikon!

Olympus E-PL3, Panasonic GF3 - lens used Oly 50 3.5 Macro
NEX-C3 - lens used Sony DT 50 1.8
Nikon N1 - lens used Nikon 30-110 3.8-5.6

So you have a macro lens, and a 50, one of Sony's sharpest, against a telephoto zoom! That Nikon did as well as it did speaks volumes about the IQ/resolving power of the V1.

Carol Stee: The Nikon V1 costs $200 to $300 more than the 'peers' it is compared with. With a kit zoom the prices are:
Nikon V1 $899
Panasonic GF3 $599
Sony NEX-C3 $649
Olympus E-PL3 $699
It can't compete with similarly priced cameras:
Olympus E-P3 $899
Panasonic GH2 $999
Nikon D5100 $899
Canon T3i $899
Or even cameras costing $200 less:
Sony NEX-5N $699
Panasonic G3 $699
Which shows that it is ridiculously overpriced.

"struggling against the g12 and XZ1 and "Poor ISO performance"
(I assume you need high ISO performance).

Change NEX-C3 to G12, turn the ISO to 1600, and what do you see?
The G12 isn't even in the running. The V1 is showing less noise, with as much or more detail, without the heavy smoothing that's clearly seen in the E-PL3 and GF3.

Look at the spools of thread in the shadows. Look at the fur. V1 holds the detail while the others use smoothing to makeup for noisy sensors.
I'm starting to believe people see what they want to be, but the crops don't lie. Except for the NEX-C3, the V1 is a clear winner, and that with the E-PL3 and GF3 using /macro lenses/!

And the V1 has a viewfinder which the Pany GF3, NEX-C3, E-PL3, E-P3 do not. A more better price comparison would be for the Nikon 1 J1 for $649, which is in the same ballpark as the above.

Vlad S: What are the yellow stripes across the face of the woman in the bank note? They appear in both JPEG and RAW images.

It's funny how to m43 users the V1 is a "small sensor" toy, yet when the NEX crowd makes the same argument against m43, all of the sudden it "holds it's own", and is "good enough". The V1's sensor is only 6 mm smaller diagonally than m43s, and the m43 is 8 mm smaller than APS-C. Yet the Nikon has a "small sensor"? In many instances like DR and high ISO, the V1 bests the m43 sensors of Oly and Pany. Aren't these examples used by m43 to support their arguments? "My EPL-3 is only 1-stop worse at high ISO than the NEX-5", they assert. "Looks like the smaller m43 sensor is holding it's own. And the lenses are smaller". You can't have it both ways.

NEX-C5N with std lens is in the same price range as J1.

Nikon i smooth, but it looks like there should be some texture to the left of the head. Could it be so that asking for clean high iso images will give you washed out high iso images?

What smearing? At ISO 1600 look at the fur, the feather or the green and purple woven cloth. In fact you'll see that it's the 2 m43 cameras that have smearing and the V1 shows good detail.

If you're gonna slam the V1, at least be sure about what you are seeing.

slncezgsi: I have to admit, the IQ of the V1 is much closer to the E-PL3 than I expected - I actually find them very comparable (though the E-PL3 keeps the edge). My hat if off to Nikon for that.

Still this does not change my opinion on the design of the camera.

Anybody who want s to keep shooting P&S-like, but wants more image quality - this seems to be the camera to get (though only full review can confirm that)

Henry, and the NEX sensor is bigger than m43. And m43 will always be smaller. Fortunately, not everybody buys cameras based solely on sensor size.

I think all the many "Nikon 1 is DOA" comments on release day need to admit that they made certain faulty assumptions based solely on sensor size. Remarkable all-around performance my the V1.

And this is my DPReviews software for this website blows the others away. Being able to do side-by-side comparisons is awesome. Great work again, DPR, thanks.

Vladilena: $200 and I will consider it! :) This looks small and easy to carry around.

$200? Yeah, and I'd consider a Fiat 500 for $3000. Not gonna happen. It's not cheap to produce something this small.

Agree, why 5D Mk II but no D3X? Inquiring minds what to know.
