The black Leather Body Case ONLY for the Nikon N 1 V1 Digital Camera is a leather protective body case designed specifically for the Nikon 1 V1 mirrorless digital camera. The V1 is a compact, interchangeable lens camera. It slides into this leather case like a cup sliding into a cup-holder. The case only covers the bottom, sides and part of the front of the camera body. You can use your camera while it is inside the case, as the lens is not covered and the camera controls are still accessible. The case has a 1/4" threaded screw in the bottom, which fits into the camera's 1/4" tripod socket for mounting.
