    I have a large Canon DSLR. However, its bulk prevents my using it in many public situations. The Nikon J4 is idea insofar as it produces excellent quality photos while I can hold it unobtrusively at any angle in my lap, at arm's length, whatever...I find myself getting more and better candid shots than I ever could with the large DSLR.

    I previously owned the J2. The only innovation I don't like is the use of micro memory cards instead of the regular sized ones.

    I just returned the J4 thanks to b&h's excellent customer service. I really liked the compact dimensions and light weight. I use the camera outdoors a lot and the lack of an EVF made it unusable. The features are good and the image quality was excellent, but I couldn't use my Nikon remote and the manual controls seemed limited. I didn't give it a full chance because the view screen just didn't work for my purposes.

      J4 & Ultrawide bargain

      By chuck

      from chicago suburbs

      Comments about 1 J4 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10-30mm Lens (Black):

      Ready to buy the V3 package, I found that the J4 is essentially the same camera. So I got the J4 and a 6.7 - 13mm ultrawide for a thousand bucks, still a couple of hundred less than the V3 alone. I now have a suberb dedicated WA camera and cash in my pocket. State of the art, beautiful lens...

        The camera quality is outstanding, fast clear pictures. Really like the touch screen to take photos and review them, interface is very simple to use like an iPhone. Also like the built in wifi, nice not to have a cable to offload pictures.

          I use to always carry a Nikon Coolpix for quick shots when I needed them. Now that I have purchases the Nikon l J4, I'm finding this camera is small enough to have with me all the time. I wash shock of the clarity of the images, and the resolution is outstanding. This has been a great purchase.
          Again, I am glad I have purchased this camera. I have found Nikon's can take a lot of wear, and this is the reason I always buy Nikon. This J4 is fantastic~!!!!

          I recently purchased a Nikon 1 J4 from B & H. The price was spot on and was shipped out quickly.
          Their customer service is terrific and I can't wait to visit the store when I come to New York City!!!

          My daughter nd I both own the Nikon1 J3 for the past year and absolutely love it! The quality of the photos are excellent,it's easy to use and it's a great travel camera. I just bought the ugraded J4 model as a present. It still is a great camera but with added features. I would definately buy it again. B&H had the best pricing and was much cheaper than @! I even got free next day deliver!
