Nikon 1 Compact System Camera Unveiled

Nikon unveiled a new compact system camera (CSC) tonight called the Nikon 1. The system, which consists of two compact camera bodies — the J1 ($649) and the V1 ($899), which both use new 10-megapixel sensors in a new Nikon-designed CX-format (13.2x 8.8mm) — is aimed at consumers and prosumers and includes four lenses: a 10mm f/2.8, 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6, and 30-110mm f/3.8-f/5., and 10-100mm f/4.5-5.5 “power zoom” lens.

The new Nikon cameras, which were the subject of intense Internet speculation and rumors in the last few months, were unveiled at a highly secretive event in New York City tonight with select members of the press. Journalists, including this reporter, were forced to surrender their laptops prior to the 12:01am unveiling of the Nikon 1 system at the Bath Houses event space in the Chelsea section of Manhattan.

    I had a Olympus PEN for a short time, just as a walk around personal camera, hated it. I now have a D5100 just for an every day walk around camera, light and great images. I put a 35mm lens on which is a 52mm with the crop factor. As it is there are too many of these low end camera that are just ok. They should put some R&D into making better pro gear and faster product releases of pro level gear. Just my 2 cents.
