The Nikon 1 V3 is one of the few mirrorless cameras we'd recommend for shooting sports or quickly moving kids. It brings high autofocus performance, interchangeable-lens versatility, and DSLR-like handling in a portable size.

Nikon's 1-series cameras are popular with some for their compact nature, but its flagship models have had a hard time competing with larger-sensored cameras. The company aims to turn all that around with the Nikon V3, a camera that brings improved image quality, stupendously fast autofocus, and...

Ever since Nikon announced the introduction of the Nikon 1 V3 back in March of 2014 the camera has been met with mixed reactions. Some of the design choices made with this camera left many photographers scratching their heads wondering what the engineers at Nikon were thinking when they put the...

Nikon's flagship mirrorless camera is a speed demon.

17 August 2014

Although its still imaging performance is excellent for its relatively small sensor size, it's difficult to recommend the Nikon 1 V3 enthusiastically when Fujifilm, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung, and even Sony offer CSCs with larger sensors, built-in EVFs and 3x zoom kit lenses, for less than the...

Nikon have made some big changes to their flagship compact system camera, which is now seemingly targeted at more casual consumers, rather than the keen enthusiast that the previous V2 specifically catered for.

Great to use and part of an ever expanding system, the Nikon V3 is the company's best CSC yet.

Nikon’s advanced offering from its system camera range hasn’t really hit the mark. The V1 didn’t offer the level of control expected of an enthusiast camera, and while the V2 addressed some of these issues, it was far from perfect.

9 May 2014

The Nikon 1 V3 is a compact mirrorless camera, with a new compact 10-30mm power zoom lens, making it more easily placed in jacket pockets. The camera, with its unique sensor technology allows extremely fast continuous shooting, at up to 60fps at full resolution!

    Great tilting touch-screen, 2 year warranty, High speed continuous shooting, 20fps continuous shooting with AF tracking, High speed video modes, Good image quality and colour, 10-30mm lens gives excellent macro shots, Fast focus and shutter response, Good handling

I was a Nikon 1 fan within the first hour of using a J1. I operate the camera with my right hand and cradle the lens barrel in my left hand, just as I have always done with SLR cameras. I really like the traditional interchangeable lenses with hoods, filter threads, and mechanical zooming.

I have owned a V2 for some time and have been waiting for the V4 (I don't like to buy _every_ upgrade). Since the V4 is yet to arrive from Nikon and because I dropped my V2 (it now has problems), I decided to buy the V3.

The Nikon 1 V3 is in many ways what the V1 (which I've already used extensively) and V2 should have been from the beginning. These are mainly my thoughts compared to the V1. First, what I don't like: Still no hot shoe for regular Speedlights, and therefore no iTTL/CLS or even decent flash coverage...

18 January 2017

This V3 is in great condition. I am still learning the system. It seems to focus well, but a tad blurry. Not sure if that is because it is used or not. I cannot get the camera to show Wysiwyg. That's the main reason I'm leaning towards mirrorless.

26 September 2016

Firstly the image quality is top class and I'm happy to use it at iso1600. At night I go to iso 6400 but noise is starting to be an issue. Auto focus performance is about the same as my canon 7d mk1. 20 fps burst is great for getting just the right wing angles for birds in flight shots.

19 August 2016

I really wanted to like this camera but it was one of the most horrible cameras I have ever used. Absolutely impossible to figure out how to focus it in auto or manual. It had a mind of it's own no matter which option I picked.

11 August 2016

Light and small the V3's fast focus, rapid imaging bursts and other nice features make this a great camera. Shortcomings: 1. Small sensor which I think is the reason I get a lot of noise in low light. I hope the future V4 has a bigger sensor or something to make the noise go away. 2.

15 July 2016

Just what I was looking for. Easy to use, excellent lenses available.

8 July 2016

Much improved from the V1 which I lost some time ago

19 April 2016

I really wanted to like this camera. I've had the V1 since it came out and love the small format and lenses. Unfortunately this camera shoots so poorly, even at low ISO, that the first thing that I must do in post-processing is scrub it for noise. And it isn't a pleasant noise like the V1.
