Nikon 1 J1 Review @ sansMirror

Wed December 14, 2011

Nikon 1 J1

Nikon 1 J1

It’s like putting a V12 in a minivan: this camera appeals to Joe/Jill Consumer, but it has a racing engine underneath. Focus speed, frame rate, video excel.

Editor’s note: I suspect that Nikon is probably very happy with Thom Hogan’s review in spite of the rants therein of the “complete novice design philosophy” of the Nikon 1 J1 and of bypassing the DSLR users who want to downgrade. Nikon does NOT want their DSLR users to downgrade to the compact mirrorless, period. Every design aspect of the 1 System seems to have been taken to steer the traditional DSLR users away from the 1 System. So, if Thom Hogan’s review firmly convinces DSLR users to stay with Nikon’s traditional mirrored DSLR, the Nikon 1 designers are probably receiving a hefty bonus this holiday season. Ho, ho, ho.

PRESS RELEASE

Built From the Ground Up: The Nikon 1 System Balances Speed, Style and Simplicity to Creatively Capture All of Life’s Spontaneous Moments

Nikon introduces the new J1 and V1 cameras along with four new ultra-portable lenses geared to enhance expressive digital lifestyles

Mississauga, ON, September 21, 2011 – Today, Nikon Canada announced a revolutionary digital imaging system built from the ground up to empower users with new ways to tell stories through photography. Driven by imaginative next-generation technology, the iconic new Nikon 1 system is designed to become one with users and their lifestyles, providing a unique form of expression with amazing image quality, speed and portability.

The Nikon 1 is an advanced camera system with interchangeable lenses that opens the door to a fresh way of capturing pictures and Full High Definition (HD) movies. Pioneering a new category of digital cameras that challenges conventional thinking, Nikon is empowering users with a pocketable form factor with unbelievable speed and the high image quality that Nikon is known for. Built on a new set of innovative technologies, the Nikon 1 is a simple-to-use conduit for creativity that virtually anticipates a user’s needs. Moments are instantly captured using remarkably fast new hybrid Autofocus (AF). Users can shoot with confidence knowing the Smart Photo Selector will automatically capture the best possible image without a second thought. Furthermore, just a touch of the shutter button instantly captures a high-quality image while simultaneously recording Full HD (1080p) movies. The exciting new Motion Snapshot mode captures fleeting moments like never before with a combination of moving and still imagery that brings memories to life. To accompany this exciting new form factor, Nikon created the entirely new advanced 1 NIKKOR lens system that seamlessly integrates powerful precision optics into the Nikon 1 camera platform to capture more of the world around the user.

“The needs of the consumer are changing and the world is becoming one of visual conversation, paving the way for the next chapter in image capture devices. The new Nikon 1 system is the culmination of more than 75 years of optical excellence and the relentless pursuit of the next standard of technological advancements in digital camera technology,” said Gregory Flasch, National Advertising and Communications Manager at Nikon Canada. “The speed, versatility, ease of use and portability of Nikon’s 1 instills a higher level of confidence in users seeking new modes of creative expression.”

Point-and-shoot with flexibility. The Nikon 1 J1 is basically a simpler point-and-shoot version of the Nikon 1 V1. It features the same CX format using a 1.0-in. CMOS image sensor and a new Nikon 1 lens mount with smaller and lighter lenses for its Nikon 1 System. The Nikon 1 System is targeted to the point-and-shoot crowd who wants a better camera with interchangeable lenses.

The Nikon 1 J1 (or simply Nikon J1) features 10.1MP (on a 1.0-in. 13.2 x 8.8mm CMOS sensor). This image sensor is bigger than the 1/1.7-in. sensor used in most top of the line point-and-shoot cameras but smaller than the Four Thirds sensor and APS-C sensor found in other compact mirrorless cameras. The Nikon 1 System targets mostly those coming from the point-and-shoot world wanting a better camera with more flexibility.

The Nikon 1 J1 also features a new and revolutionary hybrid AF system with both Phase-detection and Contrast-detect AF sensors embedded right in the image sensor itself. Being embedded right in the sensor allows the Nikon 1 J1 to have lightning fast phase detection AF without needing a mirror to reflect light to its phase detection sensor(s). The 73 point AF array allows Continuous Shooting of 5fps in autofocus or up to 60fps using electronic shutter.

The LCD is 3.0-in. with a 420k-dot resolution. No optical or electronic viewfinder is available. If you must have a viewfinder, see the Nikon 1 V1 instead which sports an optional EVF attachment.

The Nikon 1 J1 accepts interchangeable lenses on its new Nikon 1 lens mount. Currently, there are 4 lenses: 1 NIKKOR VR 10-33mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens, 1 NIKKOR 10mm f/2.8 Pancake lens, 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Zoom lens and 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 10x power zoom lens. An optional FT1 F-mount adaptor allows the use of legacy 35mm NIKKOR lenses.

Movie is recorded in Full HD (1080p) and you can take a still photo at any time during movie recording. Movie frame rates are 30/60/400/1200fps. Motion Snapshot is a novel feature and captures a still image together with an accompanying 2 sec. video. Smart Photo Selector takes a number of shots in quick succession and selects the one with optimal exposure, subjects in frame, clarity and focus, even eyes open.

The Nikon 1 J1 has a built-in pop-up flash but no accessory shoe.

Want something better than point-and-shoot with interchangeable lenses but don’t want the size, weight and complexity of a DSLR? Try the Nikon 1 J1 which is available in different colors: black. red, pink, silver, white.
