1.0 out of 5 stars Not so good, June 10, 2014
This review is from: Nikon 1 V3 Digital Camera with 1 NIKKOR 10-30mm PD-Zoom Lens (Electronics)
Have to remove the grip to change the battery.

In aperture mode control is on the wheel around menu buttons and can't be changed.

Easy to bump menu buttons.

Grip doesn't feel solid even when properly attached.

Photo quality not worth the money.

I don't think you actually own or have used this camera judging from your comments. The aperture adjustment has it's own wheel up front, both with or without the grip. The grip is definitely solid once attached properly. Not sure how you're bumping the menu button on this any easier than on one of Nikon's DSLR. (And I own and use all of the above.) This review just doesn't seem legit at all.

I concur, James. The review is worthless. I'm liking this Nikon over the Sony A6000.

You're far too casually dismissive of the image quality.
Perhaps you've held the camera at a photo counter, but I have no doubt you neither own one nor have used it to make photographs.

Canon apologist. perhaps? Bell & Howell...? Argus...?

Useless reviews like his should be erased--they're valueless.

Sorry but I had the camera for ten days, bought it through Cameta and was really wanting to like it in place of a D5200 to save weight on long hikes. I returned it and got a GX7 and it's a much better application of the money for something lighter than the D5200 which I love. I really wanted to like this camera so that I could use all of my existing lenses.

And the feedback of people who don't like a product is as valuable as the feedback from the people that do like it. I suppose it's possible I missed where I could change the aperture using a front wheel, but I scoured the menus trying to move it off the wheel around the menu buttons. I'm sure it's set up there so that in M mode the aperture is on that wheel and the shutter speed is on the wheel on the back, but you should be able to move it to any wheel you'd like to.

My review and opinion of the product is very much in line with the one on photographyblog. I'd be willing to bet that as more people get their hands on this camera it settles at around 3 stars. I'm actually allowed to not like the product without being thrown into a bucket because you think anyone that disagrees with you must be from some other subset of the photo enthusiast population. Speak for yourself, and I'll speak for myself.

Thanks.

I think he works for Canon . . . Take his review with a grain of salt. I just ordered my V3. I'm looking forward to upgrading from the V2, which I thought was also a good camera.

I don't know: In May, he reviewed a Tamron lens with a Nikon not a Canon mount. While he seems to use 1* pretty easily, I tend to give him the benefit of the doubt. Let's see what others have to say about this camera.

I just had a 24x36" made from one of the landscape shots with this camera and the printed image quality is excellent. The picture is hanging on my wall.
For a 1* rated camera it is not too shabby!
