Reviews Word on the street

Nikon 1 V1  vs X-Pro1

It's based on the old '1/focal length' rule of thumb for getting sharp hand-held shots without obvious blur due to camera shake, but this really isn't sufficient with modern high-resolution sensors in the absence of any form of image stabilization.

It's great to see another manufacturer join the compact system camera revolution and bring something truly innovative to the party, so if the Fujifilm X-Pro1 suits your way of shooting and your budget, we have no hesitation at all in highly recommending it.
