Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Tested July 2014
For users who place a strong value on using small, light cameras, the V3 should be considered for its continuous AF at high frame rates (20 fps) and DSLR-like handling.
Eugene Lee Eugene Lee
76%

Conclusion

The Nikon 1 V3 is one of the few mirrorless cameras we'd recommend for shooting sports or quickly moving kids. It brings high autofocus performance, interchangeable-lens versatility, and DSLR-like handling in a portable size. However, when factoring in price, there are many other good, less expensive alternatives with better image quality and all-around value.

Reasons to buy

  • Fast and effective continuous AF
  • DSLR-like ergonomics with twin command dials
  • Small size, even with grip and EVF attached
  • Useful tilting, touchscreen LCD
  • Silent shooting mode makes it a discreet camera

Things to consider

  • Visible shadow noise at low ISOs (in Raw and JPEG)
  • Proprietary hot shoe only accepts 1-system accessories
  • LCD is tough to see in bright sunlight and preview images sometimes have greenish/cool tint
  • Non-customizable command dials
  • 1-system has limited lens selection

Suggested for

Fast action such as wildlife and sports. Street photographers will find the the V3's silent mode useful.

Not suggested for

Low-light or landscape photography where absolute image quality or dynamic range is needed.

Speed that changes everything

Game-changing continuous shooting speed

Nikon 1 cameras achieve a level of speed and accuracy that once was unimaginable, and the Nikon 1 V3 takes that performance even further. Capture thrilling views of sports, fast action and spontaneous moments with game-changing continuous shooting speed: 20 fps at full resolution with full autofocus performance. When using fixed focus, increase that burst rate to a mind-boggling 60 fps and capture sights other cameras may miss. The Nikon 1 V3's Hybrid AF System uses 171 AF points for contrast detection and 105 AF points for phase detection to lock onto your subject the moment it enters the frame with virtually zero lag on the camera's LCD display. Few cameras are better suited for fast action photography than the Nikon 1 V3.

Image quality that inspires

Nikon's CX-format CMOS image sensor is one of the most exciting innovations in image sensor design and the secret behind Nikon 1's unrivaled speed, image quality and elegant design. The Nikon 1 V3 pairs an enhanced 18.4-MP CX-format CMOS image sensor with Nikon's new EXPEED 4A image processor for spectacular detail and color rendering, blazing-fast speed and brilliant low-light performance. Shoot sharp, clear, noise-free photos and videos up to ISO 12,800—continue shooting in fading light long after lesser cameras have been put back in their cases. Bring the Nikon 1 V3 everywhere you go, and preserve important moments beautifully.

I really like my V3. I also have a V1 and J3. And a panasonic GF1. I have been using it since May 5th. Recently gave away my Nikon D300 after I concluded that I just did not use this camera anymore. While my heart said "use that D300" my practical hands always reached for the J3 and now the V3 when I left on a trip. My typical configuration is with the 10-100 zoom or the 10 f2.8.

Things I liked:

- The top dial mode dial - nikon added the PSAM options - making it a lot easier to get to these modes that I use. Makes this camera similar to their dslr (I also had a d300 that I gave away). I find myself going to the menu button a lot less now, compared to the J3 and V1.
- Detachable EVF and handgrip. Not everyone likes the removable EVF. My hands are small, so i don't really want the handgrip. I love the detachable EVF, because on trips where space is a premium, I don't pack the EVF, and this V3 is almost as small as my J3.
- 2 dials to adjust aperture and shutter speed: Change Aperture with the small dial on the front of the body, next to the lens. Change Shutter speed with the dial on the top of the body. Makes using Manual mode easier - actually possible - compared to the V1.
- Super fast. This is a very fast camera. fast to turn on, fast to focus, fast to shoot, 10 fps, 20fps, 30 fps, 60 fps - it is very fast!
- Eye sensor off option. If you want to use the EVF exclusively, you can turn off the eye sensor and it stays on the EVF without switching back to the LCD screen.
- Tilting LCD screen - its great. Feels strong and sturdy.
- weight and build feel. This is very subjective. I love the weight and size. I find myself taking this camera almost on all my trips now.

I agree with all the remarks pointing out that would have liked to see many things different in the modular design, having everything built in with the camera, but the results coming out of this camera are excellent, and the user friendliness, including the much easier set up changes makes me forget those things when I use it.
All in all I love the camera, all the lenses are very sharp especially the new 70-300CX lens which gives me unprecedented long distance access for wildlife shooting with razor sharp images even wide open at any zoom settings.

Paired with the new 70-300VR this is a wildlife photographers dream rig. I shoot with a D4 and a lot of big fast glass. The V3 with the 2.7 crop factor makes this lens camera combo an optical wonder at 819mm with a 1" sensor that holds up, especially in good light. I know I am repeating myself, but with the crop factor you have a quality VR lens with 819 optical, not digital reach. I don't know where you get that without a massive tripod, gimbal mount, long expensive glass and a DSLR body. The camera and lens are fairly small and very light, yet the quality is there.

I can't count the times I say to myself " this camera shouldn't be as good as it is." The images shouldn't hold up as well as they do with only a 1" sensor, but they do which is a pleasant surprise. The kit lens is a big improvement over the old model. This camera is super fast. Nice EVF. At 20fps it is a whole different experience from shooting a DSLR at 10fps.

I am not saying this is a FF D4 with a 600mm F4, but considering that you have $2k vis $17K++, it is very very good.
