I have taken the V1 out in the field earlier and have blogged about the performance and my verdict. These are some images of the camera.
Above : The V1 with the body cap on. The disc in the box and the lenses available with the model. I only had the 10-30mm f3.5-5.6 lens to try out.
Above : Top view of the camera – the video recording mode button is so easy to access – I LOVE that feature. The tiny lens – it was quite an experience to hold such a small lens after the hunk of 70-200mm f2.8 I am usually shooting on these days.
Above : Oh! See? No mirror!

Nikon gave me the V1 to play with for a few days – don’t forget to see the field-test results here in my previous blog post.
The official press release says : “The Nikon 1 V1 is aimed at the user excited about creating amazing images and movies, and has added features including a 1.4 million dot high resolution EVF that automatically activates when the user raises the camera to their eye. In addition to the high-speed electronic shutter, the magnesium alloy body conceals a high performance mechanical shutter that affords tactile feedback and expanded shooting options. The V1 camera also features Nikon’s new Multi-Accessory Port for attaching options such as the new SB-N5 compact speed light, or the GP-N100 GPS module. For those making movies, the V1 has a stereo microphone input for professional quality audio.”
Pricing : Nikon 1 V1 with 10-30mm VR kit will be available at MRP of Rs 43, 950.
