This is a great camera! Good quality, takes good pictures and videos in HD!
I have always wanted to invest in a DSLR but I am a little overwhelmed by all the features. I think the Nikon 1 V1 is a good mix between a regular point & shoot and a DSLR. This camera comes with a lens that allows me to zoom and I have the option to exchange to different lenses if I wanted to. It’s great that I can even take pictures while I am on video mode. Most of the time, I use the camera on automatic settings. However, I definitely have the option to play around with the manual setting: shutter speed, aperture, & etc. I can also set the camera to take multiple shots at one instance or put it on the Smart Photo Selector mode, so it selects the best picture (note that this setting takes a couple of seconds before you can take the next shot). The reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the price and also the slight delay in some cases. Otherwise, this is a great camera!
Pros:
- Great photo and video quality (HD)
- Option to replace lenses (not included)
- Option to zoom
- Feels like as DSLR, but more compact
- Quick focus
Cons:
- A bit expensive
- Under certain settings: the shutter speed can be a little slow (ex: Smart photo selector. It’s a great feature though!)
- Need to purchase a separate SD card

Took this to a recent Monster Truck event and was impressed. I was in the far back of the bottom row and this camera picked up all the action. I changed it to Shutter Priority and it was still fast enough to pick up all the action. Continuous mode allowed me to get the shots I needed as these mammoth trucks flew through the air. The only downside was that once you let go of the shutter, there is a delay before the next shot. Which at a Monster Jam, you're left waiting and hoping they don't pull off some amazing stunt in the meantime. Other from that, I enjoyed using this camera and the picture quality is great!

I've had two SLRs and one digital SLR (all Pentax), but never anything that cost more than $400. I didn't think there could really be so much of a difference that it would be worth it. But the first time I looked at the display on this camera I was amazed; It was like looking through a super fancy Hollywood movie camera.
After carrying around a big DSLR for a few years it was a real treat to have this smaller, more compact camera. Weight-wise I can't say it's much lighter, so it might not be much better for carrying around on long trips, but it does fit much more easily in my hands (I'm a 5'2" woman with fairly small hands - not great for using large SLRs with big lenses.)
The photo quality is fantastic, and best of all I was able to take the camera out of the box and start shooting right away because it's a very simple camera to use. I recommend reading the book to learn about all the extra features, but if you've used any kind of SLR before then this will be very easy for you to get started.
The only drawback for me is that there's no flash on the camera. I know that a real pro (or anyone who's willing to pay this much for a camera) would say that built-in flashes aren't worth having, but if you don't want to have to purchase and carry a flash around, then it's nice to have that option, just for emergencies.
Overall, this is a great, fun, compact camera.
