Nikon 1 v1 – First Look

The all new Nikon 1 v1

I won’t waffle on.

I took the brand new Nikon 1 V1 system out today on a 4×4 shoot and was blown away.

While the sensor is small, the quality is amazing…. amaaaazing!!!

The 10mm f/2.8 lens is already a favourite…  I might have a new favourite toy.

About inciteimages

A magazine recently profiled my life and pretty much hit the nail on the head: Australian adventure photographer (and occasional journalist) Mark Watson is a liar. He suggests his job is “not so glamorous,” but drop him an email and his ‘out of office auto response’ will inform he’s heli-skiing New Zealand or trekking Patagonia. In downtime he surfs and mountain bikes Sydney’s Northern Beaches or can be spied drinking café latte’s on the beachfront when he should be editing photos. He’s a Nikon Ambassador and Red Bull Australia’s No.1 photographer, and after a few Corona’s, admits, “I photograph cool people, in cool places, doing cool things!” Quickly followed by the disclaimer “It’s not always exciting…” But always said with a mischievous grin.
