The Nikon V1 goes on a late evening stroll!

This weekend I realized I haven't shot with my Nikon 1 cameras lately. So I decided to take out the Nikon V1 + 18.5mm 1.8 lens for an evening stroll! Despite owning far more advanced FF DSLR/MILC cameras, there's an immense satisfaction nailing shots with the V1 that I don't get from any other camera! The raws when shot at their sweet spot, just sing to me! The nice thing about the V1, is that it's so light you can just have the camera strap around your neck tourista style!

My dream Nikon 1 body/lenses would be the V1 combined with the J5, equipped with 5-axis IBIS, fast OSPDAF and a 14.5mm 1.8 and a 6.7mm 2.8 prime lens combo! That would be the greatest street setup ever! :D

Anyways, check out some shots taken with the Nikon V1 + 18.5mm 1.8 Lens - Edited using ACR and my custom Nikon CX presets!

I almost got the V2, but went m4/3 instead.
I have a soft spot for the Nikon 1, and may still get a V2, one day.
IMHO, Nikon did a dumb thing when they removed the integrated EVF on the V3, as that make it more like a J series than a V series. The add-on EVF looks like a broken EVF/camera just waiting to happen.

Sometimes Nikon does things that make no sense whatsoever. The J5 was actually quite brilliant, but then they killed the entire system before they made a follow-up to the "committee designed" V3. I like the V1, despite all it's flaws mainly because it uses the same D750/D850/Z6/Z7 battery and regular SD cards.

I still ,like the 1 series. I only have a V1 and J1 but they re very competent little cameras. I kinda wanted the J5 but with no evf, I lost interest.

Canon just did the same thing with the new M6.
No integrated EVF. The EVF is a slide on EVF , just like on the V3.
Clearly it is aimed at the cell phone crowd.
But the other specs could be advanced amateur. sheeesh
