The Nikon 1 S1 is the first model in Nikon's S series of CSCs. It arrives firmly at the entry level of the 1 range and inherits a lot of the other '1' range features. Find out how it fares in our full Nikon 1 S1 review
Nikon 1 S1 review – Verdict
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.
