The Nikon 1 system has been out a year and I know a lot of you have experimented and used your 1 system for various things. Now that the dust has settled for most of us I thought it would be interesting to see what types of subjects everyone is finding themselves drawn to with the 1.

For myself, I would say landscapes. I'm not big into landscapes but I've enjoyed doing them with my V1. Mostly intimate landscapes instead of the vast vistas. I've done a little with people and I've done some still life, etc. but keep finding myself using my V1 for landscapes and my D800 for everything else.

I voted for other because I use it as a snapshot camera, even though I'm shooting RAW/NEF. It's too convenient not to!

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.

I definitely use it for that, too. And a lot easier on the hard drive than the D800 as a snapshot camera! I got the V1 for travel initially but found that I don't use it for that as much. After I get married next year I'm going to give the V1 to my girlfriend as she develops her interests in photography. She really enjoys using the V1.
