The Nikon 1 V3

The same day Mr UPS delivered the D810, he delivered the new Nikon 1 V3 (w/10-30 lens) to the office. We had and use a ton the Nikon 1 V2 so wanted to give the V3 a try. Why some have already asked? Well, I love the Coolpix 7800, it does a marvelous job but everyone knows I’m a lens whore and you can’t change lenses on the 7800. I’m looking for that killer “pocket” camera that I can take everywhere from fly fishing to jobs and it does it all. Well, with the D810 primary testing done, time to play with the V3 and I can tell you, I really, really like it! First thing is, it feels great! It’s all metal and heavy. It’s actually physically smaller than the Coolpix 7800 and has a great live finder that works perfectly. I’m loving that. The shots you see here I took at 33k feet going over WA last night. I’ve just started to dig into this thing, but I am impressed so far!
