When I bought the Nikon 1 last January, I was looking for a light weight DSLR style camera for backpacking. I got just that with the Nikon 1 J1. The lightweight camera proved to be a worthy competitor to the bigger bulkier DSLR. It did everything I could ask for in a camera and I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who is looking to thru-hike or long distance trek. It’s especially enticing when you are counting ounces. Overall I took some amazing photos with the J1 and I’m looking forward to what I can capture with my d5100.
After going through my entire photostream I chose a handful of my favorite photos I took with the J1.
