Product Description

The mid-range Nikon 1 J4 replaces the J3 as the beginner-enthusiast-level compact interchangeable-lens offering from Nikon. The new camera has a new, higher-resolution sensor and faster image processing engine, more AF focusing points for faster focus, a high-resolution touchscreen LCD monitor, and for the first time, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.

There are three slow-motion speeds and resolutions available, including 120fps at 720p resolution. The Nikon 1J4 is the first Nikon MILC to offer touchscreen control: Its 3-inch LCD monitor has 1,037k dot resolution and touch capacitor so you can control focus and click the shutter with the touch of a finger. Touch focus works for both still and video capture. Unlike its predecessors, the Nikon 1 J4 stores images on small microSD memory cards.

Its ISO range is 160-12,800, and it features matrix, center-weighted and spot metering. For video enthusiasts, HD Video capture is available up to 1080/60p.

Style Name: NIKKOR 10-30mm Lens KitColor: White Verified Purchase
Why this: I am a design student getting tired of renting a camera I barely understand from school, and I like to photograph moments, which means I'm not big on camera knowledge but I love to have one on me. I needed something that would take good quality photos, that wasn't difficult to learn, and that was very light and easy to carry around.

Quality: Resolution is amazing. Without changing any settings, I can have a high-quality photo that is a size that works for my projects.

Ease: Click on the screen where to focus and it INSTANTLY snaps the photo. Don't have any interest in that? That's fine, just turn that feature off! The flash seems to work pretty well, and is actually kind of cute in a robotic way. As a non-professional, the aperture is fun to play with, and the 10-30mm lens it comes with does surprising well for macro photos. I was afraid I would need to get more lenses, and I might later, but this one does just fine for now. Putting the lens on, you do place it in reverse to what you might typically think, although that may be for all lenses for all I know. Also, all buttons and the touch screen are very comfortable and easy to use, in my opinion.

Weight: For the quality you are getting with this camera, the weight is unbelievable. This is perfect to throw into a bag without worrying about stressing out your shoulders.

WiFi? I know a lot of people have asked about the wifi, which is apparently not new for Nikon, but I'll go ahead and put what I know about it anyways. The camera acts as a WiFi device, somewhat similar to how bluetooth works.

Style Name: NIKKOR 10-30mm Lens KitColor: White
About me: I'm a novice with a camera who has never had an SLR camera. I've had a few digital cameras over the years as well as my cell phone, but wanted something with more range to capture the sights and scenery on an upcoming trip. My 6 year old point and shoot has been acting aged and unreliable - stuff that doesn't seem to be related to battery. Those were my excuses for making the plunge on the Nikon 1 J4 with 10-30mm lens.

The camera is portable, user-friendly and fun to use, capturing lovely images. I've had at least 5 people walk up to ask me about my tiny camera with interchangeable lenses (yes, I already bought the 30-110mm lens.) They comment on the camera's very portable size and surprise about the interchangeable lenses and seem impressed with the crisp display. I'm impressed that it can make my photos look good.

Out of the box: a manual and DVD of Nikon's NX2 software, the next layer contains the camera body, lens, camera to computer USB cable, battery, charger, and neck strap. I've had the J4 for 3 weeks and taken 350 images, the manual still hasn't been cracked open. I will get into the manual very soon to help discover some manual modes and how to stitch photos on the camera to make a panoramic photo.

The menus are easy to navigate and the display screen is crisp and clear. I am find it very easy and straight-forward to change settings, whether it be for image type(NEF/JPG or combination thereof), or between image capture modes (manual, auto, creative.)

The shutter is very fast and whatever algorithm they have for image stabilization does a LOT to help with camera shake. The images have turned out crisp and colorful. I've been able to do some close-ups of things, blurring the background.

These are initial thoughts after my first week. I will update as I learn more.

The most amazing feature that most people do not know about is the 1200 frame per second high speed video mode. The resolution is limited and you can only shoot 4 seconds, but if you need it, this feature is a deal maker and enough to justify the purchase. For anything from analyzing golf swings, to debugging flickering LEDs (what I use it for), it is an amazing tool.

Must remove the battery to charge- it does not charge though the USB port. This means that you must bring the bulky charger with you rather than the USB cable you probably are bringing anyway. This is silly. It also means that you have to remove your tripod shoe every time you charge your battery and loose any alignment you had. Argh.

Simply superb. Don't worry about DXO or other sites that pan this camera. The output is excellent. I own the Olympus OMD EM10 and Sony 3N, and enjoy using the J4 more - why ? Well the J4 is smaller and lighter, the focus is faster and more accurate, there is no shutter sound which is perfect for candids. The touch screen is the best I have used and I love touch focus ! The body is extremely well made with attractive minamalist appeal throughout. The kit lens is extremely small, has a metal mount and nikon managed to build the 'lens cap' into the lens itself. The wifi implementation is the best I have used, though I do wish Nikon provided more control over camera operation. There is noise even at base ISO, but even so this camera is excellent at retaining color and dynamic range all the way up to ISO 3200, the noise is never a distraction (luminance tight grain) and you don't see it in print. I prefer the output over the Olympus and Sony, even though the sensor is smaller. This camera is a steal for its price point.
