I have an oldddd Canon G9. An now a Nikon D5000 dslr.

I read about the Nikon 1 V1 and went for it. Nikon 1 Compact Mirrorless Camera System | Camera News & Reviews

Super fast, low light, HD video, remote mic, take photos while shooting movies, small.

Opinions. I ordered it sight unseen and it will be here Oct. 24.

I like this technology, I'm interested in where it's going to go in the next few years. Mirrorless makes for some really really interesting tricks with strobes and lighting.
1/5000 shutter with a flash? no problem.

Neat kind of idea I guess for those who want something in between a proper DSLR and a P&S, but what I don't get is why make a camera that has the burst capability these do and then have a piss ant battery only capable of doing 250/350 shots :eek:ut:

Let us know how you like the V1.

I have a couple of Nikon dSLR's (waiting for D800) and a Lumix GF1 system. The Nikon Ones look promising. Does it shoot in RAW? How hard / easy is it to auto bracket exposures for HDR photography? How does it work in low light? Are you happy with the function of the small sensor size?

I have been looking forward to Nikon catching up with P&S cameras. I have owned a few of their DSLR's and loved them, but their P&S stuff has sucked so far.
Nikon has had a few P&S gems, I have personally used the Coolpix 950, 995, now an S10, all of which delivered superb images and were quite rugged. The S10 with VR takes images that are easily as good (in terms of large print quality) as my D5000, given the difference in lens capability. A lot of the finish is worn off but it still works well. In the meantime my wife has gone through a Pentax and two Panasonic ZS1s. As a back country all conditions anywhere camera user, I've always considered the good P&S Nikons to be more durable than most others, even the P&S Leicas, based on my experience and observation. You start using them in rugged dusty conditions and all those fancy point and shoots start to malfunction real quick, especially the those with an external zoom lens and an automatic lens cover/shutter.

I agree tho, a serious Nikon P&S with lenses could be cool. :thumbsup:
