Nikon V1 Digital Camera Review$899.95
The Nikon V1 and J1 are nearly identical in terms of how they control. They both feature the same confusing, barren mode dial, but both are designed around helping beginners adapt to life with an interchangeable lens camera. The menu system is closer in design to Nikon's point-and-shoots which is less intimidating, but difficult to get around for advanced shooters. We feel novices are going to be more than capable of learning the ins and outs of the camera's operation in time, but the lack of in-camera help makes the learning curve worse than it needed to be.
