Summary: This Nikon 1 J3 14.2MP camera with 10-30mm VR 1 NIKKOR Lens (Black), great easy to use compact camera, very happy, still learning how to use all features of this camera. I order an extra battery, but have not used camera enough to drain the battery. I was use to my Lumix camera, so there is a learning curve with this Nikon.
Summary: One of my best memories is that God allowed me to be in a position a few years ago to buy my beautiful daughter over 12,000 dollars worth of Canon equipment (EOS 5D and top notch lenses) which she really likes. She likes this little Nikon just as much but for different reasons. I don't think you can go wrong with the Nikon 1 J3 as an "almost" pro-sumer purchase.
Summary: I love this camera! It does everything that I want and more. Great photos! My only 'complaint' is the lack of wireless transfer but the purchase of an Eye-Fi SD card handled that no problem. I got a great product at a great price and could not be happier with this Nikon.
Summary: Pretty good camera but after I bought it I it saw cheaper than what I paid for.I would recommend it but if you're into photography, there's way better cameras than this for about the same price or maybe a little more, but you still get a good camera.
Summary: My reason for purchasing this camera, was based somewhat on a suggesting of a photograph friend who uses a version of this camera. Its performance by itself is great, and in low light it shines. Plus with an optional Nikon FT1 mount, you can use your standard Nikon AFS lens with it as well, giving you 2.7 times the reach. Really been impressed.
Summary: I bought this camera as a gift for someone very dear to me. Her reaction continues to be overwhelmingly positive. This was the camera that won out over many "brain-picking" sessions that I had with professional photographer friends. Don't wait, BUY ONE!!
