CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

Jun-deung Temple on Gang-hwa Island on the West coast of So. Korea that was first built in 1382 and rebuilt in 1621 after a fire. It has been largely untouched since then.

Yes, focus point is shown as a green box in the EVF.

i do believe it does,... i've been using mine manually without the autofocus,...

but from what i recall at the shop with the kit lens, and from what i found after a quick google it seems to: http://www.2cameraguys.com/best-mirr...?page=Nikon-V1

scroll a thrid of the way down and you'll see what i think is the autofocus. what you see on the LCD is the same as the evf so it should show up there.

also, with the v1 lenses, it magnifies a certain area so that you can fine tune the focus.

dont take my word for it tho, as i only got the body, so autofocus and the magnifying focus doesnt work for me. manual focus though is a breeze via the lcd or evf.

hopefully someon else will chime in,.. if not head over to dpreview's V1 forum,.... they're alot nicer than the usual dpreview folk :P

these are very interesting to me. i like the b&w a lot. on my monitor it seems the color ones lack a bit of vibrance compared to lets say fuji or olympus. do you guys notice this or is it just my monitor?

also, i'm wondering if anyone is using c mount lenses on these cams and what that experience is like.
thanks
tony

I just got one to play with yesterday (for $299 with the kit lens and an extra ~$100 for the 10mm/2.8!) and i'm liking it so far. Who else is using one?

Walked around with the 10mm today, the OOC JPEGs looks fantastic.

My Nikon V1 just arrived yesterday. It's small enough, has a beautiful viewfinder and is very fast. Some images from my first walk with this wonderful camera and the 10-30mm kit lens.

I've recently bought the Nikon V1 and twin lens kit with some Christmas money which was burning a hole in my pocket. So far I've been very impressed. The system is very lightweight compared to my Olympus four thirds kit and to be honest I don't see a lot of difference in the photos. I've printed up to 18"x12" which is as large as I'm likely need and the results have been very impressive. Here are a few recent pictures fron the Isle of Skye.

Here are another two from my Nikon V1 (also from the Isle of Skye). The more I use this camera the more I like it.

Another couple from the marvelous Nikon V1. The light weight of this camera outfit means that I am actually taking it with me all the time and so am having more photo opportunities as a result.

I have two questions about this little camera. What does the 10-30 kit lens equate to in 35mm? How is the viewfinder?
