On September 21, 2011, Nikon announced the new Nikon 1 system which included the J1 and the V1, compact cameras that added some new technologies including a new hybrid autofocus system, which has proven to be very fast for photographers. It has been praised by top reviewers such as PDN performing as good as any CSC rivals in natural light. Its mirrorless design and sleek, simple, and elegant design have made it a desirable little piece of equipment for a variety of photographers. We asked professional photographer Nick Didlick, a Nikon Legend Behind the Lens, if he might show us some of his images taken from the Nikon 1 system.
