Summary: Wide angle 10-30 lens comes without a hood. Hood of 30-110 lens is not compatible with the wide angle Some filters are not compatible with the hood of the telephoto lens. You cannot use the filter and hood at the same time. The extra battery provided is low quality. Endures a day maximum whereas the original endures a week.
Camera gets hot and shuts down after just 30 minutes of video.

Summary: Yes, very strange, but during our family summer vacation 2013 using this brand new Nikon 1 J3, while taking video, the bottom part of the camera got extremely HOT until the point where it shut down, and had to wait (10-15 mins) until it came back up. The quality of the photos, usability, weight, battery time, etc. are very very good (coming from a Canon guy). That's why 3 stars only.
Summary: I took this on a trip out west and brought back over 500 high quality photos from our vacation. The camera is extremely easy to use and the interchangeable lenses provides options usually only achieved with the larger SLR. Great camera.
Summary: This is one of the best cameras on the market that has all the right stuff- except for a viewfinder which makes it VERY difficult to see the image your taking a photo of especially if its sunny outside.Otherwise you will love the video and photo quality.
