  1. Hi Saikrishna,
    I am very much a fan of Nikon as I have both a D90 and D700 DSLRs as well as the Coolpix AW100 underwater camera myself. Although mirrorless seems to be very trendy with some nowadays, I still don’t have a feel for them. If you love to take pro quality pictures without having to bring a bulky DSLR during your travels, get a Fujifilm X100. Yes, it’s a bit more expensive than the Nikon 1 V1, but you will be amazed at how dazzling and brilliant your pictures will be, minus the weight and bulk of a DSLR. In addition, it’s retro SLR-look will make it unattractive to thieves.

    • Haha funny…! your comparison for the for the thieves regarding the attractiveness makes me laugh 😉
      Its really a very good review I got from you Felicia 🙂
      Thanks for your valuable feedback.

  2. Thanks Saikrishna for that review – I’ve been looking at these Nikons for a sketch camera – light, compact yet with half decent imaging and I think your review has swung it for me. I saw a few negatives on Amazon and much prefer finding a tech-savvy reviewer instead.

    I hadn’t even thought about it’s retro looks putting people off stealing them – even better!

  3. Very thorough review. Thanks for the info

  4. one of the world’s best camera is Nikon. nikon camera with features constantly developing new and cutting edge.

  5. Really wanting one of these for my next holiday, it was between this and the sony nex 5n. But I think after this review it will have to be the Nikon 1 V1. Thanks for the review.

  6. Nikon 1 V1’s looks is very clean. White and some black – perfect fit. The 2.7 optical zoom is good enough for me. Since it comes with a good HD resolution, this camera is nice to carry along in my travels.

  7. Which one would you suggest between this and similar ranged cameras by sony? Sony seems to be quite popular in these sort of cameras. what say?
