This mirrorless compact camera packs excellent image quality, but its user-friendliness isn't great

Very good image quality ; Plenty of dials and buttons

No built-in EVF ; No exposure preview ; Electronic zoom ; Awkward manual focusing

Nikon 1 V3 review

 

A small, sleek and stylish CSC with a tilting touchscreen and Wi-Fi

Touchscreen ; Inbuilt Wi-Fi ; Sleek design

No viewfinder ; Expensive

Great to use and part of an ever expanding system, the Nikon V3 is the company's best CSC yet.
