I covered some of the differences between the Z1 and the V in this article.
IMO, most plug-ins will need to be modified to work with the Z1. These are some problems that I’ve seen:
- No Wi-Fi LED on the Z1, which people often use as a status indicator on the V
- Image size is different, which may cause a problem with certain image processing applications
In addition, I’ve seen an error with thread management, possibly related to the larger images. If the original V code handles image processing on the main thread, it may be okay in some circumstances. With the larger size of the Z images, it may fail. I’ve only seen this occur in one plug-in and realistically, the image processing for V images should also be on a separate thread, but I think I’ve ignored that main thread warning in the past on the V and it was okay.
