"Nikon V1 images"


Bay Area, US
          

Just back from a 2 day trip with my kids to Monterey. Along I took my V1 and 3 lenses (10mm f/2.8, 10-30mm and 30-110mm). Here are a few samples.

Those are very nice images! Are you trying to make me buy one of those cameras? If so, you are on the right track.

Very nice.

Very nice pictures, funny how many folks put the N1 system down before they gave it a chance or even tried it. I am seeing more and more quality shots like yours coming from this little camera. Try these from a guy who knows how to use the camera as you do.These are some of the best I have seen. WC

Thank you all for your kind comments! Indeed this is a great camera. When traveling with my kids, there is little room in my backpack, next to all the spare cloths, water, snacks, jackets etc. The V1 fit in fine. Not only that, I was able to take the extra lenses. I mean, even the longest lens, the 30-110 with which I shot the birds, weighs practically nothing. No human would be able to detect the weight difference of the backpack, with this lens in it or not. Quite a difference from the 70-300 let alone 300/4 lenses. So this Nikon 1 system actually allows to have all the gear with you. And then of course it allows to shoot good images. I'm still learning, though, and missed a few shots because I was fumbling with the controls and menus too much.

Now will this replace my DSLR, of course not. When I head out by myself, I will still take the heavy gear.

Some decades ago, with the "ridiculously" small camera that was the Leica M, most "pros" stuck to their Speedgraphic or Rolleiflex arguing about negative size, lack of bellows, lens quality, etc...
A few others went clicking away all around the world, dancing around their subjects without flash such as Capa or HCB...

I'm wondering when looking at most of the Nikon 1 system pictures if we aren't at the eve of something like that.
Four third systems are looking like scaled down DSLR's, P&S are, well, small but limited, the APS-C variants non DSLR might look like cheaper variants of Leica M series and one's might choose the real McCoy...

Nikon might have conceived a truly new niche with those handy but quick cameras ? In a few years those sensors will improve in IQ and I believe that many will start leaving more often the "big" gear at home or in the studio and use in many professional segments such a system !
And we'll start looking at pictures for the sake of pictures...

I see that you also use a (very forgiving of movement or user error) D700.
Were you able to hand hold the V1 or did you have to use a TriPod?

I have a small, lightweight Carbon Fibre one that I use when hiking with my D5100 at Point Lobos.
