The white 1 S1 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 11-27.5mm Lens from Nikon combines a high speed compact mirrorless camera and a wide-angle to short telephoto length zoom lens. The 1 S1 houses a 13.2 x 8.8mm CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 3A Image Processor offering high speed hybrid autofocus and up to 15 frames per second of continuous shooting. The 10.1MP sensor and an ISO range of 100 to 6400 allow for clear, detailed, color-accurate imaging even in low-light conditions. In addition, the 1 S1 features Full HD 1080i video at 60 frames per second. Simultaneous capture allows you to shoot stills while recording video and switch back to video at the touch of a button.

A 3.0" TFT color LCD with 460k-dot resolution provides composition and playback viewing and with Live Image Control you can see the changes you make to settings right on the LCD before you shoot. Best Moment Capture allows you to view live action in Slow View in order to capture the best moment and Motion Snapshot lets you combine a still photo with slow motion video for complete documentation of a moment.

The 1 S1 makes things easy for photographers who are upgrading from point and shoot cameras by offering a simplified user interface, Best Moment Capture and Smart Photo Selector which will automatically select the best image of the 15 frames shot in burst. The 1 S1 also includes a pop-up flash when lighting conditions call for extra lighting.

The 1 S1 is compatible with all 1 NIKKOR lenses and this kit includes the 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 compact zoom lens which is a great lens for day-to-day shooting as it provides a focal length that runs from 30-74mm in the 35mm format. This is a versatile focal range in compact form with a maximum aperture of f/3.5 that allows for low light capture. Its optical design includes aspherical elements and extra-low dispersion glass to reduce aberrations, and its Internal Focusing mechanism means the length of the lens remains the same throughout the focusing range.

The optional WU-1b mobile adapter allows for easy wireless transfer of images from the 1 S1 to your smart phone or tablet and even provides camera remote control from your phone.

Quality
Featuring a 10.1 MP AF CMOS sensor and a wide ISO range from 100 to 6400, the S1 allows you to capture high quality images, even in low light.

3.0" TFT Color LCD
A bright 3.0" TFT Color LCD monitor with 460k-dot resolution and brightness adjustment is available for composition and playback.
Hybrid Auto Focus
Hybrid Auto Focus utilizes both phase detection AF and contrast-detect AF which, when combined, provides very fast and accurate auto focus. 135 focus areas are available of which 73 support phase-detection AF. Subject tracking and face-priority AF are supported by the 1 S1.
RAW and JPEG Capture
Shoot still photos in either 12-bit NEF RAW or three distinct JPEG image qualities
Simultaneous Capture
Start video recording with the touch of a button and if you see something that would make a great image, simply press the shutter to capture a full resolution still image.
Improved Interface
Featuring an improved user interface, the 1 S1 removes the mode dial, making it simple to operate for users upgrading from a point-and-shoot camera.
Live Image Control
Adjust certain settings right before capturing an image to make sure that it is perfect. The changes can be seen right on the LCD, so you will be sure how your image will look before you take it.
Best Moment Capture
View live action in slow motion and replay it as many times as you need to get the best shot with Slow View. If you would rather the camera do the work, use Smart Photo Selector and have the S1 select the best image out of the 15 it will take with one click of the shutter.
Creative Mode
Creative mode allows you to put more artistic style into your images. Get diorama-style images, highlight specific colors and use all of the PSAM functions.

For newbie camera users this camera practically takes pictures itself. It is easy to use in auto mode. I took this on a trip to Europe and unfortunately could not see the screen very well in the sunshine especially with sunglasses. It would be nice if this one had an adjustable screen for viewing and taking pictures of self in various places. Great for scenery though! The pictures a crisp and gorgeous!

          This is my first step up from a Point and Shoot Camera and I am very pleased with the quality of the photos as well and the crispness of the video functions. I am new to this arena but, have already decided to upgrade to a new Primary Lens to enhance the already quality since I take lots of pictures at car shows in low light.

          One of the advantages of using the Nikon S1 is that you can still close to DSLR, but compact and affordable for hobbyists, personal camera and amateur and professional photographers.

            I just love this camera. It is light and small and fits easily in a pocket.

            I haven't had it for very long but so far have no complaints about it at all.

            Love the red colour.

            It appears to be very well made and in the week I have had it I have had it with me all the time.

            I have small hands and this camera is a perfect size for me.

            With no previous experience in photography, the Nikon 1S1 has provided me with excellent quality pictures with an easy-to-use approach. I mainly have been using the camera for portrait pictures of my newborn and I have really enjoyed the quality of the pictures. Great value for the price as well.

              Comments about 1 S1 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 11-27.5mm Lens (Red):

              My world music band, Jutta & the Hi-Dukes (tm), bought this camera to get better videos of our performances and for our other pulicity needs. I had been looking at cameras for a while trying to determine the best blend of capabilities that would fit our rather tight budget. When I saw the Nikon S1 going for an incredible Black Friday price and saw that it had every feature we wanted except one (the ability to connect an external microphone), we decided to try it out especially since I then dug around on various photographer sites that all pretty much painted the same picture about the S1: a great step up from point n shoots.

              So far, we are thrilled with the camera even though we are still figuring out all the extra capabilities this device has beyond those of the point n shoot cameras we have had to settle for up until now.

              I suppose the coooool shiny red color has little to do with the quality of the the device but, heck, its fun.

              So to the tech we can talk about: the rear screen shows very sharp images; the colors appear pretty realistic on that screen (I really hate how most digital cameras give a blue cast to everything despite my trying to adjust settings to deal with lighting-types - I am always needing to photoshop everything to make it look warm) but I have not yet moved images over to the computer for checking on the big screen; the lens seems very precise / accurate and has a very solid feel as I turn the zoom ring, the auto focus seems quick and pretty quiet but I suspect I will hear it in the video mode, and the flash (because it sits a bit up from the body) gives a slightly nicer light than a front-mounted-next-to-the-lens flash typical of a point n shoot. I have not attempted to adjust the flash settings that the Nikon S1 provides but I think it is very cool to have that capability. I have often resorted to putting a white card angled in front of the point n shoot flashes to modify their intensity and give some diffusion to the light and I hope I won't need to do that anymore.

              I really like the fact that the camera will turn on automatically when you twist the zoom lens (You have to push the side-mounted button to unlatch it) and the same for turning it off. One step instead of two.

              The downside of the incredible price we got is that we probably can't replace the camera easily if something goes wrong right after we will have grown dependent on the thing. Such a problem, right?

              I wish the battery latch would automatically lock on closing but I like the slide-open latch: it is easy to use overall.

              The flash itself, when extended for use, seems a bit fragile so I am going to make sure to take care with that.

              Sadly, the first camera was DOA - the lights would go on but no menu appeared. Happily, B&H were super about getting the replacement camera to me. The whole process took less than a week. And even better, the agent actually READ my email and responded intelligently!

                    Its compact, and stylish to hold. The case that it came with is also very small and easy to carry, compared to the case I have for my DSLR canon camera.

                    This is definitely a big bonus.

                      No doubt this was deeply discounted because of the flashy color of the body, over the black body/lens. I wanted a Nikon compact camera that shot in Raw and had at least a decent lens, so when this came along on Black Friday I grabbed it. I have not downloaded anything to process, but looking at the images in the camera I am pleased!

                      This is a small and light weight alternative to SLR. It is conveniet to carry around for travel. I used it on a recent trip to New Orleans (see one photo I took with it). Overall picture quality is good even though I don't have photoes of the same object taken with other camera to compare with.

                      All the controls except shutter release are through menu. So you need some time to get familier with it. The default is auto mode which is automatic everything. If you want to use manual control or shutter-priority, you would change it to creative mode. Default ISO is set to auto3200(100 to 3200) and I changed it to auto800(100 to 800) for fear higher ISO than that might be noiser.

                      I took a 13 minute video and seemed it consumes battery as 1/3 battery is gone after taking video. So battery life may be just so-so.

                      There's some lag after taking one photo before ready for another. I used a class 4 SD card. Next time will try a class 10 to see if speed up this.

                      Overall a good camera for travle with.

                          This is my "everyday carrying around with me" camera. The great thing about this camera is how compact it is & it produces decent photos :DAlso, it is very easy to use in automatic setting. Just to extend the lens and shoot. It produces decent photos. Very easy!BUT this camera is not just that, if you want to change some settings, you can! You have to go down in the menu but you can get the settings you want. Changing the shooting mode, etc. Actually it is pretty versatile.Auto focusing is pretty fast especially in good light. In the dark places... not so great. This 11-27.5mm lens is very sharp, corner to corner, from 11 to 27.5mm. I love this lens.Cons:High ISO... over 800 is noisy. Manual Focus is no good. When focusing manually, it just magnifies unsharp image on the screen. So, it's very hard to set manual focus. No focus peaking either.The price of this camera was just like a COMPACT cameras but photos taken this camera were far better than compact cameras.Yes, I'd recommend this camera strongly IF price was less then $.No, I don't recommend this camera IF price was over $.

                          Why this model?Firstly, I like Nikon. It may be funny, but as to me, Nikon brand is like Stradivari brand for violins. I have several generation Nikon cameras from FE10 to D5300. So, it is a good extension of Nikon cameras row I own of. And this camera was bought as a gift for my wife. Secondly, It looks amazing and is equipped with several surprising features.The first of them is manner to turn on the camera by pushing the knob and simultaneous rotating the lens. A little unusual at first time, this feature allows you to shot immediately in any case. The pictures S1_04, S1_05, S1_06, S1_07 were taken in such manner like candid photos.The shutter release knob is not so convenience as this one at D5300 and other SLRs but works very well. The camera stability is surprising. You can proof this statement by S1_01 photo taken from upper deck of ship moving through rocking sea during windy day.The automatic works well in every lighting: in early morning under thick frog (S1_02), sunny day (S1_03), day without any sign of sun (S1_08, S1_09), in the evening with mixed light (S1_11, S1_12).As disadvantage I can point out that this camera has no convenience grips itself. It needs a special grip handle.Anyway it is pleasant good handy camera.

                            I am not a photographer but I was an art major in college so I am more interested and discriminating than point-and-shoot owners, so I wanted a camera that was easy to use when traveling but could also perform as an honest-to-God real camera when I feel creative. The Nikon 1 S1 with the Nikkor lens fits ALL I wanted from a fine camera that could also be put on full Auto when I didn't want to think too much. The photos are incredibly good. The flash fills-in without looking like a flash was used. The shots are written to the SD card very quickly. The HD movies are beyond belief at this price. The leather case is Nikon quality. The only downside is the size which is small but not pocketable but you're not buying this camera for pocketability. This in-betwee-size makes a nice camera for travel with features common to the hulking size of more expensive cameras. I would recommend this camera to my photographer sister-in-law.
