Nikon 1 V1 Price in Singapore, Features, and Tech Specs

Nikon 1 V1 Price in Singapore, Features, and Tech Specs: Are you looking for a compact camera that can produce images comparable to DSLRs minus the heavy and bulky disadvantage? Would you like to have your hands on interesting new compact cameras that are very stylish and sleek? Perhaps, checking out the Nikon 1 V1 would be a good idea. Read along and find out why this camera may just be what you need to bring with you as you capture still memories of your daily journey. This camera is surprisingly great for professional and non-professional photographers.

The Nikon 1 was launched as a group of interchangeable lens cameras in the market. These cameras are an excellent substitute to DSLR cameras because they provide better image quality without the complexity and bulk of a DSLR. If you are a non-professional photographer, you would understand the need to have simpler and easy-to-use cameras that can still provide you with great pictures with exceptional quality. Nikon has launched two cameras at the same time: the Nikon 1 J1 and the Nikon 1 V1, which have more or less the same features. One obvious difference is the price as Nikon 1 J1 is cheaper compared to V1.

The Nikon 1 V1 does not have an optical viewfinder and a reflex mirror, which makes it a compact system camera. However, it uses interchangeable lenses. Equipped with smaller sensors, the Nikon 1 V1 produces images with lesser noise. Unfortunately, the Nikon 1 V1 does not have a built-in flash, a feature that is available in Nikon 1 J1. With the former, you will find a multi-accessory port that can accommodate an external flashgun or GPS unit. The Nikon 1 V1 is better at capturing moving objects with a mechanical shutter. This mechanical shutter enables the flash at the speed of /250th of a second.

On the outside, the Nikon 1 V1 lacks the traditional appeal. While other compact cameras have gone for dials, V1 has ditched it and remained modern and simple. Perhaps, the audience that Nikon was aiming for this line was more on the non-professional side since traditional dials may be something they are not used to. However, the Nikon 1 V1 still has not forgotten its professional audience, leaving you with manual settings that you can manipulate to get the outcome that you desire the most for your pictures.


The Nikon 1 V1 has a Smart Photo Selector, which takes twenty images and chooses four or five images that it considers as best. Images which are blurred, hazy or out of frame, the Selector will not choose it. Using this feature will only take you two minutes. It may not be something you would always use, but it becomes handy as it selects good images and saves them in your memory card.

The Nikon 1 V1 has a lot of user-friendly features that you can use. The good thing about compact cameras is that it comes with automatic and manual settings that can be beneficial to beginners and professionals in the field of photography.

The Nikon 1 cameras are available online and in camera stores. A good way to find out which Nikon 1 camera is good for you is to visit Nikon stores and see the J1 and V1 for yourself. Nikon 1 cameras are only slightly bigger than your regular point and shoot cameras that can give you quality images like that of a DSLR at a fairly cheaper price. So, why not go for one of these, especially if you are only a beginner in photography.

The Nikon 1 V1 will let you explore a lot of possibilities without having to pay for an expensive price. Another bonus is that the camera absolutely looks beautiful and do not look ordinary like the usual point and shoot cameras found on the market. I give the Nikon 1 V1 a rating of three and a half stars out of five.
