We are everything as Goldilocks,evermore sampling the so-much, so-little, merely-right of things. Inthe camera world, it is simple to imagine that is the dSLR, thedigi-cam, and the Compact System Camera.
When Nikon seated to plan a digitalcamera without mirror on more picture standard as compared to theseries of Coolpix could supply as well less baggage area as comparedto its dSLRs want. We can not confirm either technology is constructinto the Nikon V1's sensor, merely Aptina, whose largest CMOS sensoris 16 megapixels, clearly believes there is more to a sensor ascompared to its footprint.
Although the Nikon V1 is littler andignitor as compared to a dSLR. I did detect it a bit dis-satisfactorythat there is no grip with the Nikon V1. There is a small ridge withthe front that is more a design element as compared to a grip. It isbalanced by a nice thumb pad on the rear . And the camera is thickadequate that you may not require more as compared to that.
Merely my first letdown was confirmedwhen I asked a some innocent bystanders what they thought. Theymissed having a grip, as well.
I applied the Nikon V1 with a carpuswhip. And carried it in a Think Tank Photo Retrospect 5 bag or a Thefront of the camera has the lens mount covered by a body cap with aLens Release button at about three o'clock. There is an Infraredreceiver merely up the ring from that. On either slope of the bumpfor the EVF are two grills for the microphones
On the left slope of the V1 is a coverdefending the External Microphone port, HDMI mini connector, andUSB/AV connector. The right slope of the camera has nothing with itat all. It has a sensor with the left of its window thus it can tellyou have raised the camera to your eye and can turn on the EVF. Thereis no EVF/LCD button accordingly.
