Article of The Day: Nikon launched their new mirrorless camera, Nikon 1

Assalamualaikum and good evening to all Mirul Photography blog readers today..

I just read an articles that Nikon launched their new mirror-less camera. Could it be better than other mirrorless camera especially Oly Pen EP-3 or Pana Lumix or Sony NEX? Let's take a look at the camera first...

Nikon 1 J1

Nikon 1 V1

So the J1 is the entry level which doesn't have the EVF and the V1 is currently the high-end model of Nikon 1 with flash hotshoe and EVF... V1 does have 10fps continuous shots same as Alpha SLT. So the NEX, Pen and Lumix lost at the continuous shot speed. What about the Manual settings? Does this camera provide it? If yes, could it be better than other brands? I still didn't have an answer for that.. Maybe I can explained it if I have a chance to test both camera... Huhu..

As a conclusion, Nikon offers a good compact mirror-less interchangeable lenses camera with a lots of lens from pancake 10mm 2.8 to 10-100mm 4.5-5.6... That's the pro, the cons is the sensor is too small which is 2.7x crop factor (10mm is equivalent to 27mm) and the 10-100mm looks to bulky for this cute camera.. I still recommend to use either NEX or Lumix as a semi-professional compact camera since you have a lot of choice choosing lenses from Leica, Summilux, Contax, Zeiss, M42 and much more ...!

That's all for today.. Thanks for reading. Enjoy! Stay tuned  for more updates!
