Nikon 1 S1 review - Verdict

 

Nikon 1 S1 front view

The Nikon 1 S1 is a fine CSC, with a long list of admirable features. It may not be the best choice for low-light (with the lack of a proper VR system standing out as a particular disappointment), neither is it the ideal option around which to build a system of lenses and accessories, but if you just want a small, light and capable carry-around camera it's definitely one for the shortlist.

With its speedy AF system, prompt shot-to-shot times and respectable overall image quality the Nikon 1 S1 is a welcome addition to the CSC sector, even if it doesn't really stand out from its J-series siblings for any particular reason. Having only recently been launched it's a little on the pricey side, but its price is slowly dropping - once it falls below the £400 it'll be a steal.
