A friend has lent me his Nikon V1 camera, with the Nikkor 6.7–13mm lens, a wide angle zoom. (The 35mm equivalent focal length is 18–35mm.) I got the camera yesterday, and the weather was kind, with lovely sunshine and blue skies. So I trotted off along the Itchen Navigation here in southern Hampshire, like a child with a new toy. I didn’t take much more trouble than trying to frame my shots decently, though the one above has been tweaked just a little. I’m not going to try to compete with the serious camera review sites, but I do think the V1 has been reviewed rather ungenerously. In my short acquaintance with it so far, I’ve found it pleasantly simple to use, with a reassuringly solid build quality. In other words, running against the current trend of ever increasing complexity.
