Nikon J1 Overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon 1 J1 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10mm WA/10-30mm Zoom Lens (White) is a compact and easily portable digital camera with both a 10mm f/2.8 Wide Angle and a 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR Zoom Lens included. The mirrorless design allows the camera to be extra-small and lightweight, while still retaining all of the best qualities of a mirrored model. Featuring a CX-Format High-Speed AF CMOS Sensor and an EXPEED 3 dual image processor, this small device packs some punch. 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 10mm f/2.8 CX-format single focal length wide angle lens (27mm 35mm equivalent) is the most compact of the 1 NIKKOR lens system. Great for producing shallow depth of field looks with dreamy backgrounds, it's also ideal for capturing those low light shots with great clarity and detail. The lens applies 2 aspherical lens elements to ensure high image quality--even at the widest aperture settings. Aspherical elements eliminate the problem of coma and other kinds of lens aberration, are useful in correcting the distortion in wide-angle lenses, and also contribute to a lighter, more compact lens design. The 10mm wide angle gives you a natural perspective for shooting beautiful landscapes at any time of the day or night. Nikon's Rear Focusing (RF) system divides the lens elements into specific groups, with only the rear group moving or focusing. This makes for smoother, faster autofocusing. The multilayer Super Integrated Coating helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level, and also assists in the creation of superior color balance and reproduction. This lens features a maximum angle of view of 77°, a minimum focus distance of 0.66' (0.2 m), and a filter size of 40.5mm.

The included 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR zoom lens features up to 3x magnification and a silent stepping AF motor (STM). It has image stabilization (VR II) to combat the effects of camera shake. The angle of view ranges from 29° 40" to 77°. The lens's minimum focus distance is 0.66' (0.2 m), and the filter size is 40.5mm. The 10-30mm is a versatile lens for applications ranging from wide-angle to tight portrait shots, and applies 3 aspherical lens elements to ensure high image quality, even at the widest aperture settings. The 10-30mm zoom range enables excellent capture of fine detail, even in far-away shots. Internal Focusing / IF technology enables more compact, lightweight construction, as well as a closer focusing distance. A multi-layer lens coating helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level.

The J1 camera has an interchangeable lens system, allowing you to select from 3 optional 1 NIKKOR lenses in addition to the included one. 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 10mm and 10-30mm focal lengths of the included lenses, you may choose a length of 30-110mm telephoto.

A highly responsive autofocus and a fast shooting speed ensure that you never miss a moment. You get 10 fps continuous shooting speed in autofocus mode, so your camera won't lag behind the action. An impressive 73 point AF array gives you amazing clarity, even when capturing fast-moving subjects. A large 3.0" LCD color screen features a 460k-dot 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. Experience the Motion Snapshot One-Touch Photo Animation Experience to bring your photos to life. This feature essentially creates a picture slideshow where there would otherwise be merely a single image. Thanks to Smart Photo Selector, the J1 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.

    Nikon J1 Reviews

    1 J1 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10mm WA/10-30mm Zoom Lens (White) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 216.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovin' it so far... After having gotten into DSLR's and learning a lot about manual shooting and lenses and lighting and... all that stuff, I found that although I enjoyed it, I never found the time to pull the camera out with my new daughter and my wife ready to deliver our second child. I sold my Nikon D5000 and purchased this knowing that it would be a slight sensor downgrade but a HUGE usability upgrade. I love that the camera feels kind of DSLR-ish and offers many similar featuers yet it's as easy to use and nearly as compact as a point and shoot. I'd recommend this to any Nikon DSLR users that are finding they don't have or can't take the time to play with their nice cameras.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for the great price I love Nikon J1 with additional 30-100mm lens, and it comes for the great price at B&H. I used it for night shooting, occasionally from tripod, interior shooting and just as point and shoot camera. Quality of lens (30-110mm in particular) just great, tele-photo and video are crisp, just a bit noisy in low light. Keep in mind both lens are f/3.5(8) - 5.6, which is rather slow. Made same photos with Canon 6D and L-lens, Nikon J1 keeps up pretty well. Just don't expect to have wall poster photo from it. Overall it's a great camera, recommend it so you don't need to carry bulk full-frame body and lens to make good photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my high expectations I bought the camera to shoot short (5-15 minute) videos and occasional stills. I ended up buying the 30-110 lens too, and suddenly I enjoy taking pictures again. The video quality is incredible. I caught my son's band performing 3 songs and put them on youtube. I had recorded the set with my Tascom, but didn't even use that for the video because the Nikon's mics were good enough. Definitely get a fast SD card, you'll get a stutter with a class 4. Other than that, open the box, charge the battery, and enjoy it. Small enough to take anywhere, big enough to have a solid feel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design, great features I use my camera for mostly, street and landscape photography as well as video recording both hd and in slowmotion modes. I like that the J1 has a wide variety of features, and pretty much all the features of a entry level dslr are available in the J1. One thing I don't like about the Nikon J1, is the manual focus. You don't change focus on the actual lens as on DSLRs, but you do this with the scroll wheel. The actual focusing works fine, but it is not easy switching from autofocus to manual focus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nikon J1 10-30 white I use it for all of my indoor (w/flash) and all outdoors (w?fill-flash). The flash and used as fill flash is quite useful filling the shawdows bright sun produces! Handy zoom lens. Just right on both ends. The entire unit is lught enough and small enough for your pocket just like a Point and Shoot, but far above those cameras. The shutter goes off fast, does slow motion and full HD video! Sensational abilities!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for the buck out there At $$for the entire two lens kit, this is most likely the best value in mirrorless cameras out there. I originally picked it up for backpacking trips, as a full DSLR was just too heavy and the point & shoots simply didn't have the image quality. The autofocus is wicked fast, it is small, easy to use and a great little camera. Unless you are regularly printing larger than 12x18, the 10mpix sensor should not be a limiting factor. There may be a few handling nitpicks, but they are all subjective. The only bad thing I can think of is the color. Most of the other lenses are not available in red, so if you pickup any other lenses the kit will be a bit mismatched. But overall a minor nit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, compact, 2nd camera I purchased this camera for times I didn't want to haul my heavy camera bag with DSLR and lenses around. It is very small, but has a large LCD on the back and detachable lenses (mine came with the standard 10-30mm). Lots of features not seen in point and shoots - including a 60fps Electronic Hi Mode, and 400fps/1200fps slow-motion video (at different resolutions), manual mode, ability to adjust ISO, exposure compensation. The control dial for navigating images is pretty small, so people with large fingers may have trouble. Image quality and sharpness is very good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More convient than my DSLR I bought this camera for my daughter because she told me that her DSLR was too cumbersome to carry all of the time. The J1 has filled a void for her. She is a very good photographer and the J1 allows her more control and creativity, something she did not have with any of the point & shoot cameras available. Since she is still new to the camera she has not yet pushed it to its limits but she tells me that, so far, it has met or exceeded her expectations.
