Not bad but the slow motion video is unimpressive

Tony Shulthise, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera to take slow motion videos to analyze equipment. The slow mo video is too low resolution to be useful for seeing any detail. The pictures on auto settings aren't as good as a much less expensive Cannon SX 260. I will probably use this camera for outside slow mo shots of mountain biking. I think it may be okay for something like that on a bright sunny day.

Not for enthusiastic photographers

Orson Rocha, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: Pros: -Very quick focus system. -J1's 1" sensor reflects better pictures than 1/1.7" enthusiastic cameras but less than his peers 4/3's or Aps-c mirrorless cameras, that is, all other in the market except for Pentax Q series. -$320 is a very good price for a mirrorless camera with two lenses, even so it has just a 1" sensor. Cons: -Basic values as ISO and white balance don't have direct buttons. -No quick menu for quick access to camera parameters.

  • Summary: Well... It was a christmas present for my wife. She opened up the box and it turned out that the camera is white instead of red. Both of us were disappointed...

Takes execellent pictures in bright light conditions. But doesn't take good pictures with flash or low light.

GTO1965, Nikon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: Outdoors in bright light, it takes really nice pictures and videos. However, in low light and indoor situations it ISO up way to high even when using the flash. Another problem is that you only have a choice to for auto ISO 400, 800 and 3200. And most of the time it uses the highest ISO way too often, even when you are using a flash. I had shots taken with the flash and it's using ISO 3200 way too often. Even outdoors in the sun with the flash is on, it used ISO 3200.

  • Summary: Overall it's a good camera but pixels could be improved. I bought since its small and I can take it anywhere. It's efficient but it's not a camera for professional use.

It's decent but not worth the money

Nick, Amazon

  • Summary: Video quality is amazing, however photo quality is so-so. Sometimes it will really nail it and get a good picture, but more often than not you get a picture that isn't impressive at all.

camera is great.

  • Summary: the camera is awesome. i upgraded from a point and shoot to this so i could capture my kids pictures more quickly. my only disappointment is that the case shown in the picture is nothing like the case i received. i expected a nikon case and received a vinyl bag and an already opened sd card. love the camera, not so much the case.

Photos great, Video not so great.

Andrian, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: This camera is everything you'd expect from a Nikon. I bought this camera to replace my non-video Nikon DSLR. The picture quality is great but the video not so much. You either have to shoot outside and have the sun shining bright or be recording in a very well lit room if you want to record in the full 1080 on this camera. Any less light and the camera will hardly pick up anything unless you want to reduce quality dramatically.

Great little Nikon

Mary M. Guest, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: But I couldn't get past not having a viewfinder when I was shooting outdoors on a sunny day or shooting sports. Going to get the V2 that has the viewfinder and I think move down to this format entirely from my Nikon DSLRs. I just can't get over the convenience of the smaller size- the shots that the 1 series takes are great and completely comparable to my larger Nikons.
