Summary: I've considered myself an iPhone photography nut for a little over a year now: I'm not just taking snapshots with my iPhone, but really learning about the digital limits of the phone and editing significantly to get great results. I knew I was always going to keep being an iPhotographer, but I wanted to have something in my arsenal for higher quality images as well. I immediately considered DSLRs and purchased a Canon Rebel. I hated it!
Summary: Easy to use, even for a 50 yr old non technology type!! The pictures were quick, no lag time from when you push the button till when the shutter clicks. My only problem was I somehow set it on multiple pictures a couple times and had to delete a bunch of extra pictures. My fault entirely! I think I need to buy the extra lens so I can get better close ups. Something I wouldn't have the option with on my last little travel camera.
Summary: I really like this camera because is the perfect balance between picture quality/features and portability. It is small enough to carry out everywhere and very complete and customizable according to your needs. The build quality is very good, it feels solid and the brushed texture is a nice detail. The flash is built-in but hidden so is just perfect in terms of design.
Summary: Love, love, love this little camera. The picture quality is far superior to the previous point and shoot camera that I had (a Sony Cybershot) The reaction time is really fast, so you can capture those action shots perfectly. Very happy with this purchase.
Summary: I'm sorry for rating so late. About camera: I love my new pink camera! It is exactly the same as I checked in stores. Good condition for both camera and two lenses. I'm not a professional photographer and I only want to make it as a new member of my pink family, while all my friends say the features of this camera are good enough for even entry-level photographer.
Summary: My Background: 20 years plus Nikon lover, from F4, D100, D200, D300, D90,D3S, D3200, D5100, D7000, D7100. Lens F1.4 prime to F2.8 zoom Nikon lens. Why I buy this Nikon 1 J2: I always have the situation that "I wish I bring my Camera with me). So, I really dream of a camera, so small that I can bring with me everyday, much better image quality than my Samsung Galaxy Note II, and smarter than P&S camera. So, when Amazon have this for $249 Deal-of-the-day, I grab the deal.
