TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 18 February 2012
I have now had my J1 kit for about a month and here are my findings:

The camera has a real quality feel to it when you hold it.

The lack of "grippy" panels on the camera and its straight lines however lead me to worry, perhaps needlessly, that it will slip out of my hands.

In comparison to my main digital SLR it turns on in an instant.

The camera produces very high quality and very detailed pictures.

The macro function (I photograph flowers a lot) is incredible

The sensor may only be 10M pixels, and Samsungs alternative to the J1 may have 20M pixels but the lack of noise at lower speeds is very impressive

The flash, which is very easy to turn on and off (unlike some compact cameras!) is good.

There is even a lens hood for sunny weather (obviously this is for overseas use)

All in all an expensive but good value for money camera, I wish it felt more firmly gripped in my hands, I would have expected at this price a high speed memory card to be included. I would have liked a case included as well for the price.

However image quality and usability makes up for this.

I have no hesitation in recommending this camera.

However come on Nikon, with a camera this expensive why have you not included the vital high speed memory card?
