The black 1 J3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10-30mm Lens from Nikon combines a high speed compact mirrorless camera and a wide-angle to portrait length zoom lens. The 1 J3 houses a 13.2 x 8.8mm CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 3A Image Processor offering high speed hybrid autofocus and up to 15 frames per second of continuous shooting. The 14.2MP sensor and an ISO range of 160 to 6400 allow for clear, detailed, color-accurate imaging even in low-light conditions. Both JPEG and 12-bit RAW photo capture are available. In addition, the 1 J3 features Full HD 1080i video at 60 frames per second with stereo sound. Simultaneous capture allows you to shoot stills while recording video and switch back to video at the touch of a button.

A 3.0" TFT color LCD with 921k-dot resolution provides composition and playback viewing and with Live Image Control you can see the changes you make to settings right on the LCD before you shoot. Best Moment Capture allows you to view live action in Slow View in order to capture the best moment and Motion Snapshot lets you combine a still photo with slow motion video for complete documentation of a moment.

A stylish, easy to use design and assistive features make the 1 J3 great for any level of photographer. Smart Photo Selector, for example, will shoot 20 frames in a burst and select the best 5 images for display. The 1 J3 also includes a pop-up flash that will automatically add the right amount of light when conditions call for it.

The 1 J3 is compatible with all 1 NIKKOR lenses and this kit includes the 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR zoom lens which is a great first lens as it provides wide-angle to portrait capabilities with focal lengths that run from 27mm to 81mm in the 35mm format. Compact and lightweight with internal focusing construction, the lens is built from 3 aspherical elements to reduce aberration and its elements are coated with Super Integrated Coating to minimize ghosting and flare. It features Nikon's Vibration Reduction stabilization system which compensates for camera shake to provide clearer images in low light and when shooting telephoto.

The optional WU-1b Mobile Adapter allows for easy wireless transfer of images from the 1 J3 to your smart phone or tablet and even provides camera remote control from your phone.

Simultaneous Photo and Video Capture

Improved Interface
Featuring an improved user interface, the 1 J3 allows for simple navigation of all of its shooting modes through the mode dial and function button.
Live Image Control
Adjust certain settings right before capturing an image to make sure that it is perfect. The changes can be seen on the LCD, so you will be sure how your image will look before you take it.
Best Moment Capture
View live action in slow motion and replay it as many times as you need to get the best shot with Slow View. If you would rather the camera do the work, use Smart Photo Selector and have the 1 J3 select the best 5 images out of the 20 it will take with one click of the shutter.

    Comments about 1 J3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10-30mm Lens (White):

    I plan to use it for a variety of picture taking activities from grandchildren, animals, events and to do videos. I auto mode it is easy to use. Still trying to dope out some of the other functions/modes. After i received it i realized that the 10 to 30 m lens would not do for all ocasions, so I ordered 30 to 100 mm as an alternative. I could have gotten an SLR for about the same money but thay are bulky. Very hapy with it so far if I can figure out how to use some of the special modes

    The Nikon 1 J3 is a good camera, if you are looking to learn more about photography. It has nice features and it is easy to use and learn.
    I love the size and the minimalistic design. I think the price is right now ( on sale ). I would not recommend it if you are a pro, there are better Nikon options for people who knows more. I like the picture and the speed when shooting fast.

    Comments about 1 J3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10-30mm Lens (Beige):

    I love this camera! I am a senior in high school and wanted a camera that was portable but also took better pictures than the cameras i've had in the past. Before i bought this camera, i had no idea what i was getting in to, since i don't know much about cameras or how exactly to work the latest models. When i got this in the mail, i was extremely excited! It has many different settings for whatever type of picture you want or for the place you are taking them at. My favorite feature is the panorama. Also, just to prove its' capabilities, i had a friend of mine take my senior pictures with it and they look wonderful. The only thing that i do not like too much about it, is that if it is too dark it will not focus and refuses to take the picture. not sure if its just me not knowing how to use it properly or not. But yes, i would definitely recommend this to a friend or anyone who is looking for a great personal/convenient/borderline professional camera.

    Comments about 1 J3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10-30mm Lens (Black):

    This is a wonderful camera and perfect for those who may not be pro photographers. It has fast and accurate auto-focus, but it sometimes requires taking one picture and then another for it to work fully (the slight pressing of the button does not always work to focus). Otherwise, the standard lens does not offer much zoom capability, so definitely purchase a zoom lens. Overall, none of this detracts from a solid camera that performs particularly well in low light (or dark) situations. Clarity is exceptional.

        Coming from old school as a user of Nikon SLR cameras, I was pleasantly surprised with this camera and lens combo.
        It features the ease of a point and shoot, with settings that can be customized if you are used to having some control over camera settings.
        Can't wait to try this with the lens adapter for my other Nikon lenses.

          Sold my DSLR a few years back and have been wanting to get back into photography but am lacking funds to jump back in full force. This little camera has given me a great opportunity to stretch my artistic wings again. Higher quality than a general point and shoot and the added flexibility of switchable lenses! Love it.

            This is the 1st time I have invested in a digital camera..I like uncommon and unique products like Nikon J3.I was amazed to get so naturally clear night scene without using a tripod! And some of my pictures of Tracy fjords in Alaska had a almost a 3D quality..I still have not figured how to use the manual features.The camera is not heavy..I also took my old print camera which is heavy but of course I control the outcome of the photograph.

            Comments about 1 J3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10-30mm Lens (Black):

            I bought this camera specially for my trip to NY. Ordered the camera from home (the Netherlands) and picked it up at B&H. I wanted this camera to avoid me taken my Nikon D4 plus lenses and drag them around on my city trip. The J3 was exactly what I hoped for. It is a light weight camera with all the options you know from a DSLR. Even more there are easy to use panorama function and a video function that work very well. The picture quality is very good and certainly good enough for a city trip. Video quality is also good. Used it during the NBA match of the Brookly Nets agains the Bulls and also under the low light conditions the results where terrific.Minor issue is the use of the interface, which is needed for small changes like the ISO value or the A-S-P-M settings. A bit of a hassle to dive into the menu each time. Nevertheless I got used to it.All together a fine camera to use for traveling.

              I choose this camera because I love to take pictures at a professional level without spending tons of dollars.. Nikon is the best brand overall and with this one was no mistake. The pictures are amazing and the camera is simple and easy to work.

                I'm a long time DSLR user (Nikon) and this camera takes the best photos I've ever seen, particularly in dark settings. The performance is nothing short of impressive. I really can't say anything negative to say about it. The camera was broken in with a trip to Las Vegas and performed flawlessly in all settings, particularly dim lit environments where it took crystal clear photos without need of a tripod at all.

                I'm a college student, and photography is my hobby. I especially love to photograph musical performances. I was recommended this camera by a friend, and I received it a day before I saw Bon Jovi in concert. This camera took AWESOME pictures! It was pretty dark in the venue (my mom's camera took pitch black photos) but my 1 J3 did wonderfully. For its size and lens capacity, it did just the job that I wanted. The only thing I could complain about was the length of the lens that comes with it. It has limited zoom range, but that's minor. This is an amazing camera, and I wouldn't regret it for a second!
