Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Canon EOS 1100D has a megapixel of 12.2MP, but the Nikon 1 V1 is only a 10.1MP digital camera (2.1MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

0.6MP more total megapixels Edit
The Canon EOS 1100D has a total megapixels of 12.6MP, however the Nikon 1 V1 is only a 12MP digital camera (0.6MP less).
32.4 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
Canon EOS 1100D is 38 maximum aperture, but the Nikon 1 V1 is only a 5.6 maximum aperture digital camera (32.4 bigger).
8% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon EOS 1100D has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 88mm. That's 7mm longer than the Nikon 1 V1 (81mm).
Three hundred more battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Canon EOS 1100D takes 700.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, however the Nikon 1 V1 only takes 400.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

AC adapter included Edit
The Canon EOS 1100D has an AC adapter included, whereas the Nikon 1 V1 does not have an AC adapter included.
12 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 has an image stabilizer, whereas the Canon EOS 1100D does not have an image stabilizer. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

Significantly smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 is a 2.8 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 19.2 smaller than the Canon EOS 1100D (2.8).
Moderately shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 is a 27mm minimum focal length digital camera, whereas the Canon EOS 1100D is a 29mm minimum focal length digital camera (2mm longer).
Seven number of diaphragm bladess Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 has seven number of diaphragm bladess, however the Canon EOS 1100D only has six number of diaphragm bladess.
0.05m smaller closest focusing distance Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 is a 0.2m closest focusing distance digital camera. That's 0.05m smaller than the Canon EOS 1100D (0.2m).
One hundred and twenty-six more auto Focus (AF) pointss Edit
The number of auto Focus (AF) pointss on the Nikon 1 V1 is 135.00, but the Canon EOS 1100D only has nine auto Focus (AF) pointss.
Full HD video Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 supports Full HD video, however the Canon EOS 1100D does not. Read more

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Built-in microphone Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 has a built-in microphone, but the Canon EOS 1100D does not have a built-in microphone.
0.3" larger display diagonal Edit
Nikon 1 V1 is 3" screen, but the Canon EOS 1100D is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (0.3" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Vastly higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 has a display resolution (numeric) of 921,000 pixels, however the Canon EOS 1100D is only a 230,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels lower).
1.9x higher magnification Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 is a 2.7x lens magnification ratio digital camera, whereas the Canon EOS 1100D is only a 0.8x lens magnification ratio digital camera (1.9x lower). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

Lighter Edit
The Nikon 1 V1 is a 294g digital camera. That's 201g lighter than the Canon EOS 1100D (294g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
