A couple of weeks ago was the Eddie Adams Workshop where Andy and I volunteer. It was right after Nikon announced their point and shoot sized camera with a large-sensor and interchangeable lenses, the Nikon V1. Of course, it made its debut there and I got my hands on one for a bit.
I definitely want one for kicking around town. It shoots JPEG and RAW files, video and has a high frame rate of 60 frames per second while in electronic shutter mode. It does well with moving objects, which I imagine would make this a great camera to have court-side for sporting events or my crazy dogs. The continuous AF Mode has a 73 point focal plane phase detection AF system with makes tracking those moving objects much easier.
The camera is compact and lightweight. Due to its mirror-less system, its extremely quite which makes taking pictures without drawing attention to yourself a breeze.
