Dpreview just posted it’s final review of the Nikon 1 V3 and it liked it a lot for its overwhelming set of features, it tallied a respectable 76% in their scale. The image quality is not as good as larger sensor cameras to be expected but it has its charm and versatility in a very small form factor. → Continue Reading Full Post ←
