It’s been a week now since I received my Nikon 1 J1 camera from Amazon and I think it’s about time to give it an evaluation.
First of all, the Nikon 1 may be an interchangeable lens camera, but it by no means is like a DSLR. While delivering higher quality than most point-and-shoots, the ease of setting control is much lower than with DSLRs.
Now, some of the things I really like about the Nikon 1:
- Ability to change lenses (even though I only have one for now)
- HD video. The quality is very good.
- Quick autofocus
- Compact: I’ve been carrying this camera everywhere with me. So much more convenient to carry around than a DSLR
- Simple physical controls
