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.

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.
