5.0 out of 5 stars First Impressions: A new take on proven first gen. N1, February 27, 2013
This review is from: Nikon 1 S1 10.1 MP HD Digital Camera with 11-27.5mm VR 1 NIKKOR Lens (Black) (Electronics)
It just been a few days with the Nikon 1 S1. I lost my original first generation N1 V1 camera, so I have few lens with no body. I will be using a neck strap, even tho you could put this camera in a pocket. I like the output from the 10.1 MP Sensor. There is a newer 14 MP sensor, but I don't feel like its completely different level of image improvement for my needs. I plan on having two N1 bodies someday, just going with the smaller sibling first. The N1 S1 has no AA filter, I guess a new trend lately.

Like
No mode dial means it won't get in the way
Another kit lens option
It nails focus fast
Bounce Flash
Slow View
Can add lens for range of f-stops not available on point shoots
Compact and Light
No touchscreen means it won't get in the way
Screen is bright and colors look good for 460k
No compromised short Powerzoom lens, longer PZ in lineup already.

Dislikes
Playback of images on display options (3) (1) no information (2) basic (Jpg#, Date, Size) with no values for shutter, ISO, F range (3) detailed give you all values with histogram with small image. I wish option 2 had different values.
No panorama mode

Could like
Just abit bigger for Hotshoe. OLED display.

Is there a way in the display settings menu to change the default information on the playback screen? Wonder if Nikon disabled this just on the S1.

To clarify, I have not found way to change the default playback information on option 2. On the other hand shooting display information will display changing metering information, such as ISO, Shutter, F range. So at least you know if its in a desirable range. And you could always use option 3 of playback display options. The handheld default shutter speed seems higher at 1/60 sec with new kit lens which doesn't have image stabilization. Kind of makes sense. Have not full tested that tho. You can turn off image review after taking a picture. You can turn off and on auto focus beep and shutter sound independently.
