The Nikon 1 J2 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10-30mm VR Zoom Lens (Silver) takes the amazing J1 camera and adds even more impressive features: an incredibly sharp LCD monitor with twice the resolution, a Creative Mode that puts an arsenal of imaginative photo modes at your command (mind-bending panoramic photos, dramatic Night Portrait and Night Landscape functions, Backlighting, or total control with the PSAM mode), and a control that will highlight a single color of your choice in any photo.

Like the J1, this is a compact, easily portable digital camera. The mirrorless design allows the camera to be extra-small and lightweight, while still retaining all of the best qualities of larger cameras. Featuring a CX-format High-Speed AF CMOS Sensor and an EXPEED 3 dual image processor, this small image-maker always exceeds your expectations. The sensor enables great photos even in low light, while the EXPEED 3 enables superior system performance, high-speed processing, advanced phase detection autofocus and high-speed data transfer rates.

The included 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR Zoom Lens features a 3x zoom range and a silent stepping AF motor (STM) which is ideal for shooting video. It has image stabilization (VR II) to combat the effects of camera shake, and the angle of view ranges from 29.4° to 77°. The lens's minimum focus distance is 7.87", and the filter size is 40.5mm. The 10-30mm is a versatile lens for applications ranging from wide-angle landscapes to tight portrait shots. Three aspherical lens elements ensure high image quality, even at the widest aperture settings. The 10-30mm zoom range enables excellent capture of fine detail at any focal length. Internal Focusing / IF technology enables the compact, lightweight construction, as well as a close focusing distance. A multi-layer lens coating helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level.

The J2 camera has an interchangeable lens system, allowing you to select from 4 optional 1 NIKKOR lenses. There's even a lens designed specifically for movie filming. Swapping lenses is quick and easy, enabling you to stay at-the-ready at all times. Aside from the included 10-30mm lens, you may choose a single focal length 10mm lens, a 30-110mm telephoto, a 10-100mm silent zoom lens specifically designed for shooting video (as well as stills, of course), or an extremely compact 11-27.5mm lens.

Highly responsive autofocus and a fast shooting speed ensure that you never miss an important moment. You get 10 fps continuous shooting speed in autofocus mode, so you'll never lag behind the action. It's even possible to shoot at 60fps with focus fixed at the first frame. An impressive 73-point AF array gives you amazing clarity, even when capturing fast-moving subjects. A large 3.0" LCD color screen features 921K-dot high resolution and an anti-glare coating for easy viewing, even in bright sunlight.

Enjoy one-touch full HD (1080p) movie record mode--and the ability to capture still images while recording! Add a slow-motion effect to make your imaging more dramatic. This feature creates a picture slideshow for you. Thanks to Smart Photo Selector, the J2 chooses the best of the images you've taken, so all you have to focus on is getting the shot you want. Let the camera do the work for you while you do what you love and stay in the moment. Enjoy easy access to advanced features with a menu that is easy to follow, no matter how much photography experience you've had.
