Average Camera Review Rating [8 reviews]
Nikon today releases a firmware update to its Nikon 1 cameras, the J1 and v1. The new firmware version is A 1.11/B 1.10 for both models, which provide fixes of the following:
- An issue that sometimes caused images captured using the Speedlight SB-N5 to be over-exposed has been resolved.
- When switching from framing photos in the monitor to using the electronic viewfinder, or vice versa, with focus mode set to MF (manual focus) and the display zoomed in, the camera sometimes did not function properly. This issue has been resolved.
Nikon V1 Mirrorless Camera Reviews Roundup

|LuminousLandscape: "No lab tests, but several hundred frames of real-world shooting tells the tale. In a word, image quality is fine, especially for images that will be used in smaller print sizes and online. But due to the limitations of a 10MP sensor quality larger prints and strong cropping are not as easily achieved. If there weren't competing cameras with great 16MP sensors then the V1 would rank up a notch, but the reality is tha..." - Jun 07 2012 More »||N/A|
|Imaging Resource: "In the decades I've been writing camera reviews, this one has to be the one that has been the most involved. I took over 700 shots with the Nikon V1, roughly 80 with the 10mm prime, 460 with the 10-30mm, and another 160 with the 30-110mm. That entailed 58 focal lengths, 19 apertures, and 31 shutter speeds. ISO varied over the whole range as well, with over 140 at ISO 3,200 or above and over 200 at the base ISO 100...." - Apr 03 2012 More »||N/A|
