  • Excerpt: Nikon has entered the mirrorless camera market with a strong start by introducing their new Nikon 1 system, which includes the J1 and V1 cameras. They did not, however, take the same route as other manufacturers with a 4/3 system but came up with their own sensor size, which they call CX format...

Nikon 1 J1 Review

Digitaltrends
23 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Although the Nikon 1 J1 has a lot of pluses, we feel the negatives (and the competition) make it difficult to recommend unreservedly. It’s a good, but not great, camera. We’ve used the $449 Olympus Pen Mini E-PM1 and Sony’s latest NEX cameras , such as the NEX-5N.
  • Pros: Nikon’s first mirrorless camera, Quality images in good light, solid videos, Digital noise well under control
  • Cons: Photos not as good as competitors, Limited selection of lenses, Dated menu system

  • Summary: Like the Nikon 1 V1, the 10.1Mp J1 has a CX-format sensor, which at 13.2×8.8mm is smaller than an APS-C-sized sensor and it results in a 2.7x focal length magnification factor. This enables the camera to be made much smaller than an SLR.

  • Excerpt: Small-bodied interchangeable-lens cameras are the future of photography, and everyone knows it. At their best, they bring DSLR-like control and quality to cameras with much smaller bodies.
  • Pros: Good-looking, Very fast focusing and shooting, Multiple available lenses
  • Cons: Sensor is more point-and-shoot than DSLR, Way too expensive, Terrible low-light image quality

19 October 2011
  • Summary: The Nikon 1 J1 comes in a variety of kit options. With the 10-30mm zoom it’s £549 (RRP) and the 10mm pancake it’s £599. For £699 you can get the 10-30mm and 30-110mm twin lens kit. This makes the J1 competitive with rivals especially considering that the street price is likely to be a little lower.
  • Pros: Small size, Build quality, Impressive image quality at most settings
  • Cons: Poor battery life, Manual controls buried, Some missing features
