Excerpt: Have been using it for a week with the 10-30mm kit lens and normal jpegs. Photos viewed on their own look very good. WB, focus, image stabilisation and general speed are good enough. Comparing it's results with smaller sensor compacts reveals problems. Outside in good daylight it is not much better and sometimes even slightly worse than my Olympus XZ-2 whose zoom lens has a 2 stop advantage.
Excerpt: This is a pretty fast camera both in still photography and video. Autofocus is fast and accurate. For daylight action this camera is quite acceptable. Features are useful and the usability is acceptable in manual mode, too. Slow motion videos (400 and 1200 fps) have low resolution but some subjects do look impressive when slowed down to these speeds. General build quality is good. There is, however, a problem with the image quality.
Summary: I bought this camera to have something smaller than a DSLR for traveling around Europe. The first thing to know about this camera is even with the 10mm prime lens it is too large to be pocketed in jeans. Also note this is basically a point and shoot that you can change the lens, this is nothing like a DSLR. I have both the 10-30mm and 10mm lenses. Another odd thing is that none of the additional lenses come in orange, only black, white and silver are available. Pros: 1.
Summary: This is a nice camera and it takes a great picture, however, after only using it for one weekend I am a little disappointed in a couple of things. The camera times out very quickly and you have to press a button and turn the lense to get it to turn back on. If you want to zoom, you have to manually turn the lens, I would prefer a button zoom.

Summary: I take quite a few pictures either with my SLR, or my iPhone. I thought the Nikon 1 J2 Compact System Camera with 10-30mm and 30-110mm Double Lens Kit - White (10.1MP) 3 inch LCD might be a nice "in between" camera, a camera I could drop in my purse for those times I'm out and about with friends. Instead, I was left wondering what Nikon were actually aiming for.
Summary: I had fairly limited time with the camera. I didn't spend any longer than it took to deplete the barely charged battery. Why? Because they do not properly support PAL. So no 25/50 fps video recording. It does have a setting for clicker reduction, which locks the longest shutter speed at 1/100th. Which just isn't ideal. For frame rates, you get 30p or 60i. that's it. Up until now, I have taken it for granted that cameras sold in EU will have this...
Summary: Esperava um pouco mais do produto e acho que o kit deveria vir apenas com uma lente 10mm (panqueca) para ficar mais transportável. Na minha opinião, estas câmeras foram concebidas para ter qualidade de imagem próximo as profissionais e uma portabilidade excelente, o que não ocorre nem uma coisa e nem a outra. Um visor óptico, mesmo sem ser através da lente, seria muito útil.
