Nikon V1

The top dog in Nikon's new 1 series offers a few upgrades over its little sibling, the J1. The built-in EVF is snappy and high in resolution. It loses the pop-up flash, but gains an accessory port for adding peripherals and it gets a mechanical shutter to bring the flash sync speed up to 1/250 sec. But, it still keeps the advantages of the electronic shutter, including super-slow-motion video and the ability to grab 60 FPS at full resolution if you don't need AF.

It uses the same CX sensor as the J1, so you can expect a 2.7x crop factor and the same 10.1-megapixel resolution.

Standout Spec: The integrated electronic viewfinder has a resolution of 1,440,000 dots and lets you do real, eye-level composition
