Many photographers braved the cool October temperatures this morning so they could be among the first in the UK to own a Nikon J1 or V1. Some began queuing at 4am outside the Jessops Store on The Strand, London and the first customer who got their hands on a Nikon 1 V1 was Barry Curry, from Walthamstow, who said: "I’ve bought the camera for my son who’s really into photography. He’s got big ambitions as a photographer, so I wanted to get him the best camera possible to set him on his way."
