Nikon J1 V1 price in Malaysia




Update: Nikon J1 and V1 will be released in Malaysia on 19th of October at the Nikon Show in Midvalley


After months and months of reading rumors , Nikon finally announced  J1, V1 the first range of Nikon mirror less camera system. V1 is catered for serious amateur while J1 is targeted for consumer use . I wonder what got the latecomer Nikon into the race of small interchangeable lens camera, but I’m guessing there are plenty of die hard Nikon fans out there who will sell their Nex or Pen for a 1 system.

Nikon J1 and V1 comes with an Expeed3 10.1-megapixel sensor and it’s capable of  doing 1080p Full HD video recording. All of 1 system uses 1 lens mount. The difference between these two camera would be the viewfinder, sizes , weight and added functionality on V1.

1 system is in newly developed CX format. So it’s different than the existing SLRs format. Which you may need to invest on entire new range of lenses if you are planning to go serious on CX. F-mount Adapter may be developed on the road map. But god knows the compatibilities of different format lenses and bodies


The 1 System

Now this may sounds like a plagiarism to 1Malaysia (Datin Ng Yen Yen should have patented it)  but it seems Nikon has decided to name it the 1 system , 1 nikkor lens , Nikon 1 speedlight and many more


The V1

To be honest, the design looks kind of 80s, one of those 80s science fiction movie.  It looks kind of dull I will no doubt get a Fuji X100 for this price. But wait here’s some functionality if V1



The J1

J1 comes with several color option white, pink, red, silver and black to match your designer bag color


Nikon also released a few 1 Nikkor lenses

1 Nikkor Lenses

1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6
1 NIKKOR 10mm f/2.8
1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM


There may be an adapter released for Nikkor F-mount lenses. However there may be vignette due to crop factor


Retail Price :

V1 kit with 10-30mm (27-81mm equiv) will cost  RM 3098

J1 kit with 10-30mm (27-81mm equiv) will cost RM 2298


Of course you can get it much cheaper at market price
