Nikon 1 J2 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: The first generation of cameras will always need some degree of tweaking before they really deliver what the user wants. While the J2 is a nice camera and offers some improvements over the J1, it doesn't feel like it has gone far enough to progress the Nikon 1 series. The J1 is, of course, the entry-level model and aimed more at the general consumer than the creative amateur. Hopefully, when the V1 is replaced, it will offer more.

  • Summary: The Nikon 1 J2 is the brand's third compact system camera, and the first for 2012. Building on the Nikon 1 J1, is this update enough?
  • Pros: Cool, compact body, Neat pop-up flash, Approachable menu system
  • Cons: Not much change from J1, Same price as basic DSLR, No built-in image stabiliser

Nikon 1 J2

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The Nikon 1 J2 is a subtle reworking of the original J1. A year has gone by since the original’s launch, but this latest model isn’t a big enough leap forward to warrant a brand new release. The J2 still has its good points though: there’s the hybrid autofocus system and fast burst mode; but the lack of an intuitive menu system for more demanding users and still no accessory port or hotshoe for flash or a viewfinder will limit the appeal for more demanding users.
  • Pros: Hybrid autofocus system is decent, point-and-shoot simplicity for novice users, fast burst mode, small lens size may be a benefit, improved LCD screen resolution compared to J1
  • Cons: Little new compared to predecessor, small sensor image quality a little behind its competitors, difficult menu system for more advanced users, some auto white balance inconsistencies, electronic-only shutter, no hotshoe, no possibility of viewfinder, slow to control aperture/shutter

Nikon 1 J2

  • Summary: Nikon 1 J2 – младшая модель в линейке компактных системных камер со сменными объективами Nikon 1. Матрица КМОП разрешения 10 Мп формата CX, встроенная вспышка, полный набор экспорежимов PASM, формат RAW. Монитор имеет диагональ 3", высокое разрешение 921000 точек, он неповоротный. Nikon 1 J2 может снимать видео в формате Full HD со стереозвуком, у него есть режимы скоростной видеосъемки 400 и 1200 кадров в секунду (замедление в 13 и 40 раз при воспроизведении).
  • Pros: Сменные объективы, возможность установить наиболее подходящий для конкретной задачи., Высокое разрешение монитора 921000 точек (вдвое больше, чем у Nikon J1)., Наличие лампы подсветки автофокуса., Наличие набора экспорежимов PASM, а также (в отличие от Nikon 1 J1) – нескольких сюжетных программ., Точная подстройка баланса белого (причем индивидуальная для каждого пресета)., Настраиваемые Стили изображения., Поддержка формата RAW., Очень быстрый автофокус., Скоростная ...
  • Cons: Матрица линейки Nikkor 1 – почти что самая небольшая среди всех камер со сменными объективами. Меньше только у линейки Pentax Q., Нет ни встроенного видоискателя, ни возможности установить опциональный внешний., Нет разъема для установки внешней вспышки., Монитор неповоротный – что позволило разработчикам добиться минимальных габаритов камеры, однако снизило гибкость работы при съемке фото и (особенно) видео., Для приведения китового объектива в рабочее состояние треб...

Nikon J2

28 December 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon J2 seems in many respects similar to the Nikon J1. Our Nikon J2 review conclusion thus is very similar to our previous Nikon J1 review conclusion. The cameras of Nikon 1 series are ideal for photographers who want more than a compact camera, but find an SLR too large or too complex. The Nikon 1 series exudes quality and solidity. There is a well thought out system, which offers many possibilities. The color reproduction is very good, as is the resolution.
  • Pros: Fast (hybrid) autofocus, Quiet electronic shutter option, Smart Photo Selector, Fast: 60 frames per second at full resolution (but not in RAW), Good image quality, Video features similar to SLR
  • Cons: No viewfinder  (which probably won't bother you when you're used to a compact camera), Especially at high ISO Settings: a limited dynamic range (but much better than a phone camera or compact camera)

  • Conclusion: Nikon grenzt seine spiegellosen Systemkameras weiterhin konsequent von den DSLRs ab. Der kleine Bildsensor ermöglicht sehr kompakte Gehäuseabmessungen, liefert aber eine schwächere Qualität als die Konkurrenz. Für Aufsteiger von Kompaktkameras mag das in Ordnung gehen, etwa wenn die Mitnahmetauglichkeit und die Komfortfunktionen an erster Stelle stehen.
  • Pros: Geschwindigkeit bei Serienbildern, Einfache Handhabung, Scharfes Display
  • Cons: Schwacher Akku, Bildqualität gerade noch gut, Umständliches Menü
