Introduction

The Nikon V1 is the top of Nikon's debut line of "1 system" cameras, small interchangeable lens bodies with a different lens mount than Nikon has used in their DSLRs previously. The V1 joins the Nikon J1 in coupling a 1-inch image sensor with a smaller mount to produce cameras that offer significantly more portable than the company's full-size DSLRs. The V1 differs from the J1 by offering an accessory port for an external flash, built-in electronic viewfinder, a higher-resolution rear screen, and a tackier body coating that enhances grip. The Nikon 1 V1 is available in black or white for $899.95 with the standard 10-30mm kit lens, with multiple lens kits also available.
