Nikon 1 J3 Review

What Digital Camera
16 April 2013
  • Summary: Nikon's 1 series of CSCs and its collection of CX-compatible lenses continues to grow, and is possibly shaping up to be a nice little system, but the J3 shows that it still has a long way to go. Considering its high price point the J3 really doesn't have much to recommend it apart from its elegant good looks.

Nikon 1 J3

  • Conclusion: The Nikon J3 compact interchageable lens camera is a speedy performer, but it isn't the best in low light, and lacks expansion options when compared with the competition.
  • Pros: Compact. 60fps burst shooting. Zero shutter lag. Innovative shooting modes. 921k-dot display. Quiet.
  • Cons: So-so kit lens. Some loss of detail at high ISO settings. No EVF or external flash support. Limited lens selection.

Nikon 1 J3

neocamera.com
16 February 2013
  • Summary: Image quality of this mirrorless depends on what it is compared against. Its 2.7X crop-factor sensor puts it well ahead of of most fixed-lens cameras but also behind the majority of mirrorless ones, including its predecessor, the J2 Nikon 1 J2 which uses larger pixels in its 10 megapixels sensor. Still, the J3 produces clean images up to ISO 400 and usable results until ISO 6400 for small prints. Metering, color and white-balance are all quite good.
  • Pros: Ultra-fast autofocus until very low light, Excellent metering, Realistic image colors, Good white-balance, Usable up to ISO 6400 for small prints, Instant shutter-lag, Virtually no blackout, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Quick and responsive, Sharp and crisp LCD with fast refresh rate, Ultra quiet, Very solid build quality
  • Cons: Above average image noise for a mirrorless, General image softness, Limited dynamic range, Limited lens selection, Not, Very few direct controls, Short battery-life, ¾s video delay, AF and MF sounds get recorded during video, Wrong framing of video in image mode

Review: Nikon J3

Gadget Guy
27 September 2013
  • Excerpt: While smaller than DSLRs, interchangeable cameras are often still quite big, and that’s something Nikon would like to change with the J3, a pint-sized camera offering compatibility with Nikon’s “1″ range of lenses and a body that will fit into a small bag nicely.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Lovely compact size, Comfortable to hold and use
  • Cons: Battery needs work, Creative modes should have more options

Nikon 1 J3 review

Amateur Photographer
15 March 2013
  • Summary: Compared to its Nikon 1 J2 predecessor, the J3 is a much improved camera. In essence, the J3 is the V2 in a compact, viewfinder-less body, geared to the casual user. It can take a while to work your way around the camera, with manual control tucked away and some auto shooting modes that could do with a little more explanation. Where the J3 shines, though, is in its speedy operation, thanks to its powerful Expeed 3A processor.

Test de l'Hybride Nikon 1 J3

19 March 2013
  • Conclusion: 3ème de sa génération, Nikon a parfaitement écouté les utilisateurs des modèles précédents pour effectuer des améliorations sur son J3. Avec son autofocus ultra performant et un mode rafale à 60 images par seconde, on a véritablement l’impression d’être avec la formule 1 des appareils hybrides du marché. Son ergonomie se veut rassurante avec une qualité vraiment très présente. Il est très compact et donc discret.
