Customer Review

on April 23, 2014
pros:

-The build quality is upper level DSLR like.

-The v3 can use EN-EL20 batteries same as AW1, J1, J2, J3, S1, and coolpix A.

The EN-EL20a has 1110mAh rating vs the EN-EL20's 1020mAh

-The camera feels great with and without the optional grip.

-The grip material is pro DSLR like.

-The side memory card/usb/hdmi door is spring loaded hinged and feels solid.

-All buttons a dials feel solid and well made.

-EVF feels solid on camera and is attached with metal latch hooks on both bottom sides.

-EVF can only be released when both release buttons on bottom sides are pressed.

-V3 with grip and EVF is light but solid feeling.

-AE-L/AF-L button can be programmed to function as AF-ON like pro nikon DSLRs

-EVF looks alot better then V1

-Both EVF and display have a faster refresh rate then V1.

-Noise level improved. you can feel good about using ISO A3200

-On Delay is minimal. (>2sec)

-Greater Detail.

-Buffer Clears relatively fast. (from 40 images raw=18sec raw+fine=40sec)

After 3 sec of filling buffer you can continue to shoot.

Memory Card used Sandisk Extreme Pro 16GB

-The new 10-30 kit lens has a build quality like the 6.7-13 lens.

-Includes a little baggy for the EFV.

-Tilt screen feels solid.

-Touch response for display is quick.

- the eye detect sensor off button works great allowing you to either keep the EVF on only or the Display. (This is helpful when you need the camera ready in an instant and like to use the EVF)

- The built in flash can be held in the up position for bounce flash. Note:this is not hurting anything on the flash.

-the WiFi works great and will transfer both jpeg and nef.(android has an app that can edit raw files but currently the V3 is not supported)

- the gimmick creative modes look and work well.

- the Mic input has 4 sensitivity levels.

cons:

-Micro SD card.

-Optional Grip does not cover the entire bottom of camera.

-External EVF.

-No Flash command function.

-Forced to buy same old nikon 1 focal length kit lens.

-Included is Same horrible neck strap as the V1.
