Nikon 1 - the original Nikon mirrorless. Share your photos!

Nikon's first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera may be discontinued, but the system had a lot going for it - small size, very fast AF and excellent colour, to name a few. It was let down by bad marketing and pricing, and - at least on the Nikon 1 V1 - a UI that put some settings into menus rather than direct controls.

Use this thread to share your pictures taken with Nikon 1 system cameras and lenses. Pictures taken with the 32mm f/1.2 would be welcome.

What I liked about the original Nikon 1 V1 was its film-like rendering in both bw and colour.

I liked the colour out of the V1's 1" sensor and firmware.

Lynn, thanks for starting this thread. I loved a lot of what the Nikon 1 system had to offer. As you've said, the focus speed was superb... and the color produced. And I had a great time using the Nikon adapter that allowed use of F-mount lenses. An AF 50/1.8 mounted on the little V3 was a killer kit for photographing field sports.

I'll post some images here in the next couple of days. :-)

I really should use mine more often... Its been a shelf sitter for a few years, mostly. Come to think of it, I have an airplane trip next weekend and I really need to pack light. The N1 might be ideal.



I think I've shot this car with every camera I own. Here it is with my Nikon 1 J3 and 10-30 kit lens, four or five years ago.

Here's the J3 with a Fotodiox adapter and Nikon S-mount 13.5cm/f3.5 rangefinder lens. Sounds like a neat idea eh? Unfortunately the adapter won't allow focusing to infinity and thus I am stuck having a very narrow range of focus. And razor-thin DOF.

Hey Lynn,

You were asking for some photos with the Nikon 1 32mm f1.2 lens. It's a fantastic lens, when it works. Used the Nikon 1 V2 on assignments for a couple of years(fantastic size and form factor), until one day, in the middle of an event, the 32mm's Aperture Control Unit went belly up, locking up the lens. My 18.5mm did the same thing, so the system got put on the back burner. But when it worked, it made really nice images.

"Outdoor Charity Concert for Chicago Homeless" Nikon 1 V2 w/32mm f1.2 lens


"BLM Arrest" Nikon 1 V2 w/30-110mm lens


And since you always post such beautiful beach pics from down under, I thought I'd share a pic of the type of weather we get so often up here in the frozen north.


"Let It Snow" Nikon 1 V2 w/10mm f2.8 lens

Best,
-Tim
