    Nikon 1 V3

    Holy crackers! Pretty impressive specs. The DPReview should be interesting.

    This is the type of camera that makes you think twice about your next cash dump.

    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.

    It's only a Nikon 1 a good camera but definitely not a holy crap camera. Wait two weeks and when nobody is buying you will get 25% off and by April you will be picking them up in the bargain basement bins,

    looks badass to me.
    if IQ is slightly improved from the v1, (i'm sure it will be), and AF is at least as good, (i'm sure it will be), and the construction of the dials are better, (i'm sure they will be), then i'll be buying one for xmas when the price comes down. its worth $600 body only imo. look like at the moment its going for $800USD body only doing a conversion from japan. thats a tad too much.

    Hence the "holy crackers". Holy Crap is a different category. I like the 20fps, and 1/16000 shutter speed. wondering what the buffer looks like though. 20 fps with a 30 frame buffer... maybe not. The 70-300 (x2.7) might also be fun.

    You are going to pay $1000 for a CX lens with slow aperture that is useless for any other camera?
    Under what circumstances would 1/16000 shutter speed be any use? Shooting straight into the sun? None of the available lenses are fast enough to require that sort of shutter speed so any time it was used you would be underexposing the photo probably quite a bit. That is a marketing claim that has not practical application but will no doubt cause a few suckers to put their cash on the line.

    Or a VERY high ISO. I have actually seen my SS at 1/8000 when I have mistakenly left the ISO at 1600 and tried to shoot in bright sun with aperture set at F5.6.
    Still, seems a bit much. Great as a technology demonstration but not all that practical.

    its as practical as the conditions allow. better to have than not to have.
    remember that 1/16,000 is only 1 stop more than 1/8000. i can certainly see it come in handy on a super bright sunny day where you want to shoot wide open.

    I find myself at 1/8000th pretty often in an Aussie summer but that's because I typically leave my iso at 400 and often shoot F2.8. So it would reduce my errors slightly. However if I remember to crank my iso down to the 100 my newer camera allows then 16,000 would be redundant for me.
