i wonder if the existing non-OEM battery grips for the D3100 found on ebay will fit this cam? they seem to use the same battery..

Timbukto: It has wireless flash capability? Something the D5100 doesn't even have??

i thought the built in flash of this d3200 has a master commander mode :-).. if yes that would have been awesome.. and a built in AF screw-- .. I would definitely want this! :-)

if only my Nikon D90-- can do 1080p/30/24fps + 720p/120/60/30/24fps-- it will be a "perfect cam for me :-)

larrytusaz: I would like it if the red-dot movie button could be re-mapped. I don't use movie-mode on SLRs & it would be handy to be able to remap it to ISO or white balance etc, just as you can with the Fn button.

I'm not going on a "SLRs shouldn't have movie modes" rant, it's been almost 4 years & whether I like it or not it's here, and I realize the target market absolutely wants it. Still, the Fn button can be re-mapped, on a model like this that has so few "hot buttons" it would be nice if the red-dot could be as well. (Obviously it would be mapped to movie-mode out-of-box by default.) Other "semi-serious" models like the Olympus E-PL1 I also own allow for this, as do the newer versions of m4/3rds.

And yes--why not Wi-Fi built-in? (One person said "different standards in different countries"--but then how did Samsung figure it out?) Why not have the Wi-Fi unit, or another one like it, that works with not-so-ancient models like the D5100 and D7000 etc?

that red dot movie button-- if a novice by accident-- re mapped it.. then they say their Nikon is broken.. Nikon is trash etc etc...

I must have missed that part about it having wireless capability.. Like nikon CLS system? Please point it to me or to us in the specs or press release... Thanks..

Zvonimir Tosic: Why not GF4? They've had GF3, now GF5. Is the 4 unlucky number?
Panasonic also issued GX1. All basically same, little cameras. Or they are not that same?
What Panasonc actually tries to do with their lineup, if there's such thing at all? Or they've simply decided to stop worrying about actual sense of their offer and plague the market, every month, with anything they can think of.

But nikon is brave :-) they have the nikon D4 :-)

Hugo808: Just had a go on one in a local shop, very nice in all respects except the autofocus is way too slow. Bit silly of Fuji not to have that rather important aspect sorted out as it renders it pointless for what I'd buy it for (weddings) so I'll stick to my SLRs, shame as it's a lovely toy with obviously good IQ.

to gonfig..

nowadays, a decently fast enough AF lock is needed for those candid wedding photos.. unlike back in the manual days of shooting , it was more documenting the wedding day.. everything is mostly posed..

the style of wedding photography nowadays have changed...

The question that comes to mind from an ignorant person about astrophotography.. Can one use this as a regular camera?

Digital Suicide: My next digital will be mirrorless. But not yet. These cameras still needs to be improved technically and in price, so I'm tend to wait a little.

I think the olympus OM-D EM5 is your best bet or a panasonic GH2...

In reply to:

johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: thank goodness for adapters- I will just use my Nikon lenses.. to get the same focal length :-) but then again maybe for $150 or $99-- yeah I will get one :-)

oh yeah I figured that much :-) saving money by not buying this or convenience.. of having a small lens :-)

Aero Windwalker: Where is the vertical grip?

I was trying to imagine holding it vertically, if the bottom of the camera had some sort of protruding small grip....maybe it would enhance the user experience or using the second shutter button?

In reply to:

psn: As long as they don't pull a Sigma SD-1...

Somehow I doubt the camera will look and feel anything like the old OM-4. I'd buy it in a heartbeat if it does, specially with the same OM mount.

i have 1 Nikon FM2n Black body and 1 Nikon FM2n Silver/Chrome body.. I will never sell them, even just for nostalgia's sake..besides they will work even without batteries..

In reply to:

Carol Stee: The Nikon 1 V1 is classified as an Entry Level Interchangeable Lens Camera but it isn't. At $899 with a kit lens it is really a Mid Range Interchangeable Lens Camera/DSLR, like the identically priced Nikon D5100 and the Canon T3i/EOS600, or other CSCs such as the Panasonic GX1 for $100 less, and the Panasonic G3 for $200 less. If it were compared with those cameras it would come up short, inferior in IQ and grossly overpriced.

yes the only criticism I have is the price.. too expensive.. for the V1 that is..

forpetessake: Price is a little high, but no doubt it will soon go down. The sensor a little bit small, a little bit noisy, somewaht lacking in resolution, so it's not a camera for poster prints. If those are not a concern to you, it's one heck of a camera, small and light, compact quality lenses, fast AF, and WOW - 60 fps! You can't find a better all purpose walkaround camera, no P&S can compare with it.
