Mooney Nikon 1

I've been using a Nikon 1 V1 for over a year and am pretty
happy with it as a main camera. (EVF is the main feature for me.)

But it's still quite big and the lack of built-in flash means
lugging around it's dedicated flash which although not huge
isn't always practical. So I pulled a fast one:

Sold the 11-27.5mm compact lens I bought for it for
100 Euros and picked up a smaller S1 (with the same lens)
for 220 Euro.

So now I have a more compact body, with built in flash
as a second camera using the same lenses for 120 Euros.

(Buying a Nikon 1 when they've just brought out a successor model
in the line-up is proving to be quite a money saver. )

Amongst many other cameras I have a J1. Superb cameras and although cheaper than your V1 it does have a built in flash. Though no hot shoe which IIRC the V1 does.
