Nikon 1 J1 Review

5 March 2012
  • 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.
