Busy lives filled with exciting social engagements, or precious opportunities to record time spent with loved ones, demand a camera that can keep up. Designed to think fast and act even faster, the intelligent Nikon 1 J1 easily puts you a click ahead of the action so you'll always be able to capture the moments you want.

Quick enough to capture the unexpected, the groundbreaking super high-speed AF system instantly switches between Phase-Detection AF and Contrast Detect AF to deliver razor-sharp results in any situation. Phase-Detection AF, which focuses accurately and quickly on movement, is available during movie recording.

The high-speed image processor enables a quick shot-to-shot turnaround and powers shooting speeds of up to 60 fps.2

Every one of the compact 1 NIKKOR lenses boasts high-quality optics and is optimised for movie recording. When you want to use your favourite NIKKOR D-SLR lens, you can do so via the F-mount adapter (the FT 1) that attaches to the camera's 1-mount, and the camera's multi-accessory port gives you the freedom to expand your system further. Available in many colours, the Nikon 1 J1 may be small but it's a veritable powerhouse of imaging innovation.

 

Simplicity defined

With a Nikon 1 in your hand, capturing great images will become second nature in no time at all. Ergonomically designed for comfortable handling and intuitive operation, these intelligent, fully automatic cameras let you shoot any scene with ease. Their sleek bodies boast minimal buttons, so it's easy to become familiar with which ones to use and when. The clear menus feature large, easy-to-understand icons that make it simple to navigate between different functions. A conveniently placed mode dial on the back of each camera offers instant access to a range of clever automatic shooting modes.

Groundbreaking automatic shooting modes

Nikon 1 shooting modes have been developed to offer results that will amaze you and anyone who sees them. Harnessing the camera's phenomenal processing speed and ability to capture images before, and after, you fully press the shutter button, these innovative shooting modes can catch moments you would not normally be able to catch. Motion Snapshot (MSS) brings a photo to life in just one click and Smart Photo Selector (SPS) captures the perfect moment in any scene. Still image mode will make you a master of movement as you switch to shooting sharp shots of the action at up to 60 frames per second2 . Movie mode opens up a host of advanced movie functions, including the chance to take a high-resolution photo while filming a movie.

Whether you want to shoot fast movement, slow movement or no movement, Nikon's all-new CX-format CMOS image sensor ensures you'll always capture superb high-resolution stills and movies.

All-new image sensor with the fastest autofocus in the world

Whether you want to shoot fast movement, slow movement or no movement, Nikon's all-new CX-format CMOS image sensor ensures you'll always capture superb high-resolution stills and movies. Developed to offer the ideal balance between speed, light sensitivity, resolution and depth-of-field, you can shoot clearer action shots, better images in low light, and easily soften backgrounds to make your subject stand out more. Equipped with a revolutionary super high-speed autofocus (AF) system that boasts the most focus points in the world3, your subject will always be in focus. If you're shooting shiny or moving subjects, the sensor will switch to Phase-Detection AF. If your subject is stationary, or poorly lit, it will opt for Contrast Detect AF. And whichever system it chooses, the quick shot-to-shot turnaround gives you the freedom to shoot moments as they unfold without worrying about a thing.

Motion Snapshot:
Bring your stills to life in a click.

EXPEED 3: Fast just got faster

To be as fast as a Nikon 1 camera is, you need an engine that can handle speed. EXPEED 3 is a super-fast image processor engineered to deliver unparalleled levels of speed and performance in any situation. Equipped with two powerful engines that can process images at an incredible 600 megapixels a second, it enables a host of innovative functions. You can snap a full-resolution photo while recording a movie and shoot full-resolution stills4 at up to 60 frames per second. Fully capable of managing performance without sacrificing quality, it offers superior noise reduction, so you can enjoy clean, finely detailed images. And because it does everything so fast, it supports high-speed SD memory cards that quickly save every fantastic shot you take.

Motion Snapshot: Bring your stills to life in a click

Every photo is unique, but not many come to life right in front of your eyes. A fantastic way to capture a moment in time as never before, Nikon's unique Motion Snapshot (MSS) makes your photos come alive. Easily accessed via the mode dial, it all happens in just one click. Using its ability to capture images before you fully press the shutter button, the camera simultaneously records a one-second slow-motion movie and a still image. As soon as you've taken your shot it instantly combines the two to create a 'living image'. From the way someone might toss their head before they smile, or someone else might leave the frame before you click, fleeting movements and emotions are captured in a snap. A whole new experience, a Motion Snapshot keeps the story of a moment alive in a way that will delight and amaze you every time you look at it.

The camera recommends shots based on factors such as facial expression, composition and focus so you'll never again miss a smiling face, accidentally cut off someone's head or end up with a blurred image.

Smart Photo Selector: One shot — five great images to choose from

The most amazing things can happen at any moment, and thanks to Nikon's groundbreaking Smart Photo Selector (SPS) you'll always capture the moment you want. Harnessing the camera's pre and post capture technology, Smart Photo Selector flies into action as soon as you press the shutter button. It begins to capture images before you even take the shot, and continues after you're done, ultimately shooting up to 20 high-resolution images in quick succession. The best shot is instantly displayed on the monitor, and four more are saved for you to choose from. The camera recommends shots based on factors such as facial expression, composition and focus so you'll never again miss a smiling face, accidentally cut off someone's head or end up with a blurred image.

Continuous shooting: Action at 60 frames per second

When it comes to capturing smooth shots of fast action, you need unparalleled levels of speed and precision. With the world's fastest continuous shot5, Nikon 1 cameras have outdone themselves. Engineered to deliver full-resolution images at up to 60 frames per second6, practically no movement will be too fast to capture. And when you want to focus tightly on one subject, the camera can automatically track the subject you've chosen and still capture full-resolution images at 10 frames per second. Whether you want to capture kids or pets as they dash about having fun, or your friends as they whizz about the city on bikes, a Nikon 1 camera will bring a new dimension of speed to every scene you shoot.

You can take full-resolution photos while filming, without interrupting recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very very good, nearly great 18 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Black (10mm Lens Kit)|Verified Purchase
I'll start by explaining the missing star. In almost every respect this is a five star camera, in my opinion. But the flash will only sync to 1/60th of a second. If that means nothing to you or you never use flash, buy this camera. I'll get back to this one negative at the end.

This is what I like:
1. Small enough (I bought the 10mm 2.8 kit) to fit in my jacket pocket: I wanted a camera to have with me all the time. I've tried micro 4/3 but they always feel like Hobson's choice, all the draw backs of a DSLR, none of the pluses of a compact.
2. Silent. I shoot street all the time. I find in a candid situation my DSLR's mirror clack was a deal breaker.
3. Handles noise sensibly. Up to ISO 400 noise is virtually not an issue. At 800 and 1600 The noise has a pleasant film like character, that favours sharpness over aggressive noise reduction.
4. There's some chance to exploit shallow depth of field. If you exploit your situation, ie your subject is close to, with a background isolated by some distance, the bokeh is quite nice. This is a 1" sensor and just can't do what a DSLR can in this area, but I've been surprised by how well the camera performs in this area, I'd expected performance more in line with a compact.
5. The Speed. Put simply it's blazing. In good light the auto focus locks instantaneously, then the camera will fill the buffer at 60 frames per second. This is changing the nature of my photographs.
6. The lenses. Right now there aren't many, but they're starting by offering the focal lengths you'd want, and they're really sharp. Very sharp indeed. The next lens I buy will be the 18.5mm f1.8, a 50mm equivalent.

5.0 out of 5 stars DSLR buddy 15 Dec 2011
By Mo VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Black (10mm Lens Kit)
I already own Nikon D700 and D3 with pro lens, but I have always wanted the portability and quality which you cannot get always. It's not always convenient to carry big weighty kit at small family functions or a quick snap moment.

When Nikon announced this new 'revolutionary' camera I was waiting in anticipation. The reviews has been mixed and when you go to any store, the sales people are not always up to speed with the camera. The highlight stats which are the obvious ones stand out such as the super fast shutter 60fps and the worlds fastest auto focus.

The most obvious thing you will notice is the lack of buttons like you get with other interchangeable lens cameras and also the weight. The build quality is first class and feels more like a Leica than a 500 camera. It feels more solid and sturdy than most DSLR's at this price bracket. All the buttons have a reassuring feel and quality to it.

After using this camera for a couple of months and using it in situations where I would have pulled the big Nikons, I am delighted with the results. Tricky low light situations are handled brilliantly. Indoor photos are clear, well balanced and if fill-in flash required, the balance of the picture is superb. No over powering flash or darkened backdrop. Night shots are easily handled without tripod. The Auto ISO adjusts the sensitivity with shutter speed, and the continuous shutter and you get a sharp handheld night shot. I used this for the Christmas lights on the streets. Easy Peezy!

The sensor size 10MP is more than you will need. Sensor crop at 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever little thing 5 Feb 2012
Colour Name:Black (10-30mm and 30-110mm Twin Kit)
I have both a Nikon DSLR and a Nikon P7100 and enjoy both and I wondered where a J1 would sit for me in my photography, as the camera seems to cross over both of those camera types. In the end I feel that depending on what sort of things you shoot and how compact you want to go (and financial situation), it could replace none, one or both, it really is a personal thing, as all photography is.

I got the two lens kit. The lenses are very sharp edge to edge and the implementation of vibration reduction is the best that I have seen on any system. There is a lovely depth of colour and vibrance to the shots. JPEG and RAW output seem quite similar in prints, though I prefer RAW and the supplied software will convert it nicely. Auto White Balance is really accurate though typical of all digitals, indoor under artificial light is best taken out of auto white balance.

The software automatically adjusts noise (unlike say Lightroom which the user has control over, though I actually found the results in relation to noise reduction similar in both products) The software can be sluggish when you zoom in to something (I am using a dual core laptop - just pre Core i) to work on but once there for post processing it runs fine.

battery usage seems slightly on the heavy side, I have bought a spare - but then I always do with every camera I buy. It cost 40 which seems cheaper than some other brands for an original. I have the camera set to continuous auto focus (default setting), which is probably why I find the battery usage higher than average.

The camera is famed for its auto focus speed and it is very fast in good light and poor light it seems to around the speed of any other mirrorless that I have used, which is still good.
