Summary: I have wanted this camera since it came out in 2011, but could not stomach the very high price. Now that the 1 J3 version has come out the $$$ tag of the 1 J1 is just low enough for me to splurge. My daughter loves it so much she borrowed mine, and is reluctant to give it back, so I just bought a second one but with both of the lenses. I love that the camera can take photos in quick succession because my hands are a little shaky.
A good buy for the money, and entree photographer.

Summary: Alright so overall this camera is a very nice "point and shoot" hefty upgraded version so to speak. You can adjust some things manually which is one of nice but is not really set up well at all for doing so. Picture quality is pretty decent, it does a good job. I did buy a lens adapter so it will fit standard Nikon lenses and it's definatly nice to have that exspeschally since it triples to lens zoom:) all in all it's a good buy for traveling, and "compact" (unless...

Summary: OMG! I love my camera, it works amazingly, it came to me pretty fast, it didn't have any scratches. Like it works so well my pictures come out so good its unbelievable. Even my photography teacher likes. Its just awesome.
AWESOME camera - great deal - get it while you can

Summary: Yes - do not expect this to be a full frame DSLR - it does not claim to be that. The price is now a great value and most of the early reviews were influenced by the initial high price tag. Yes flash sink rate is fixed at 60 and there is some noise at higher ISO - but if you want to take great shots this will get the job done. Get your pics out of the computer and print large amazingly sharp pictures. This thing takes awesome video and is FAST.
Please, do not buy!!! Brand new camera does not even work out right out of the the box!

Summary: If you are looking for a camera, please look elsewhere. I should have listened to the poor reviews on Amazon but did not. Electronics should be treated as if you are buying a hotel room. A hotel with a handful of reviews stating poor service/bed bugs/unclean should be avoided, even if there are plenty of good reviews for the hotel. The same goes for electronics. I work outside the USA and bought this camera for a trip to Paris at the end of the month.
Summary: Let me start by saying I would never even consider buying this camera at anywhere near it's list price, but at the price I got it for on Amazon (considerably less than what it is here currently)--or even at the current Amazon price, there is nothing than can touch it. It blows away any point and shoot regardless of the price. You're basically talking about comparing a camera that was meant to sell for around $700 with ones meant to sell for $400 or less.
Summary: This camera is so amazing! Its greater than any other camera that I've had since this is my first photography camera. I love all of the features and its so easy to use. I have to learn more about its features but hopefully I'll figure it our sooner or later.
