The Nikon 1 J1 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 10mm WA/10-30mm Zoom Lens (Silver) 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.
