WischkaemperTheres been a lot of talk about Nikons new 1 Series cameras, and a lot of disappointment overthe CX sensor size, and the perceived lack of quality compared to Sonys larger APS-C NEXcameras. Many enthusiasts have been understandably frustrated by this move, wanting the bestof all worlds - D3 quality in a point and shoot body. The J1 doesnt quite hit that mark, but if youunderstand what youre buying and play to the cameras strengths, its a great piece of gear for thebeginner, enthusiast, and the pro alike.For clarification, I am primarily evaluating the J1 for its use *as a camera* - I wont touch muchon the video or motion snapshot modes.The Good:* As a part-time professional, I bought this camera primarily because of its size, and the ability(hopefully) to use my collection of F-mount lenses in the future. In this respect, the J1 is
fantastic. My first mirrorless purchase was a Sony NEX-3, and I was overall very happy with it,but the size of the lens still made carrying it around a real chore. Unfortunately, this really comesdown to physics - there are physical constraints on how small you can design a lens with a 55mmfocal length (concretely, it cant really be much less than 55mm in length). Fundamentally, this iswhere the CX format helps the J1 significantly. Due to its smaller sensor size, it is possible toconstruct equivalent lenses which are significantly smaller and lighter than for the APS-Cformat. The promise of being able to use standard-range high-quality zoom lenses (think a 17-55f2.8, for instance) as mid-range telephotos is certainly intriguing. There is no such thing as a freelunch, and obviously the wide end and depth of field suffer here, but I am hopeful that Nikon orthird party manufacturers will address that concern as much as they can. At the moment,however, the J1 with its kit lens is a camera that is, while not pants-pocketable, certainly coat-pocketable.* The autofocus system is fantastic, especially in good light. Ive been particularly impressed atthe ability of the J1 to track a subject around the frame. Ive been a big fan of Nikons 3Dtracking AF since I first saw it in action on the D300, but the J1 really takes it to a new level. Thesubject tracking mode is fast and very responsive, and once youve locked it on something, itdoes a very good job of staying with your targeted subject. Nikon claims that the J1 and V1focus faster than the D3, and while I havent used a D3 in a while, the J1 focuses fast enough (ingood light) that I wouldnt doubt the claim.* Image quality is actually quite good. I was fearful of how bad the noise would be on a smallersensor, but Ive been reasonably impressed with the results so far. JPEG results out of the cameraare not stellar at high ISO - theres certainly some aggressive noise reduction going on - so youwill certainly want to switch to RAW for best results. At present, ACR will not open J1 files, butCapture NX2 will. The ACR 6.6 beta results posted on dpreview.com are encouraging, beingclose to on-par with previous generation sensors (D90, D300, etc). Without access to the files inmy normal workflow (Lightroom), its hard for me to make a direct comparison on how muchyou can eek out of a RAW file on the J1 compared to other cameras, but so far Ive been pleased.UPDATE: Lightroom version 3.6 (beta) is out, and Ive had a chance to play around with severalof the images Ive taken over the past few weeks. Again, Ive been reasonably impressed. This isnot a D3. With standard noise reduction in LR, I think the image quality is easily better than myD200 was, which given the size of the sensor is quite impressive. It is certainly better than thehigher end point and shoots Ive owned (Panasonic LX-2, Canon S90 - which to be fair are acouple of years old).Things that could be improved:* The interface. The camera tries to take care of a lot of things for you, and for the most part itdoes an ok job. If youre trying to access things like you would on a DSLR, you may have someproblems. It would be nice to see Nikon update the firmware with the ability to reassign some ofthe buttons to tasks that are more useful in manual mode, but as with any wish-list feature, itsnot something you should plan on happening if youre buying the camera. Overall, the interfaceisnt worse than the NEX-3, so Im not displeased. Id like things to be more accessible, but thecamera is perfectly usable as it is.
* The high-speed electronic shutter setting is very, very restrictive with regard to the settings youcan change. Things you have no control of if you want to use the high-speed capture: Programmode only (no aperture, shutter or manual), ISO (Auto 100-3200 only), metering (matrix only),focus mode (AF-A only), and focus tracking (area mode only). I was rather looking forward tousing the high-speed mode, but frankly these restrictions make it pretty difficult to use with anykind of creative control.* There doesnt seem to be a way to turn off the image preview after you take a picture, which issomewhat problematic if you are trying to capture a string of pictures. You can take a singleshot, or a burst of pictures, but in either case you cant use the camera again until the previewgoes away, which generally takes 2-3 seconds. This wont be a big deal most of the time for mostpeople, but it does make capturing any kind of action problematic. Simply adding an option toturn this off in firmware would go a long way.Things that you might care about, but arent strictly speaking critical to being a camera:* Video seems to require more light than stills - at least if you are using the 720p60 anddefinitely if you are using the high-speed video. High-speed is somewhat gimmicky, perhaps, butdont plan on using it indoors. There simply wont be enough light. The 720p60 video is nice -certainly smother than a lot of SLR and mirrorless video out there, including my experience withthe NEX-3. I dont know that youre going to get broadcast quality, but things have come a longway in just a couple of years.* The smart selector function seems to work fairly well, but since you cant see the images itthrows away, its hard to really know. I havent used this function extensively, but when I have,Ive been happy with the pictures its kept.Should you buy a J1? It depends. If youre intrigued, but not completely sure you need one, Imight wait for the next generation. If you want to be able to carry a small, light camera thatoffers fairly good image quality - especially if you have a set of Nikon lenses - this would be agood choice. If youre a parent who wants to take pictures of your kids at their sports games,when paired with a longer range zoom, the Nikon J1 will get you some great results. If you wanta camera that weighs half a pound, can fit in your pocket, has a 25x f2.8 zoom, and gives younoise-free images at ISO 204,800... youll need to look somewhere else.At the end of the day, the J1 is a compromise, and it doesnt really pretend to be otherwise. Youwont get the low light performance you would in an APS-C camera, but you wont be carryingten pounds of gear with you either. When buying the J1, my personal philosophy was thefollowing: if Im in a situation where my primary concern is image quality, Ill bring my pro gearalong. Otherwise, Ill carry the J1, and thereby have the possibility of capturing scenes, albeit atreduced (though still acceptable) quality, because my camera is with me, instead of sitting athome.198 of 207 people found the following review helpful.Great start
By AlbieI initially preordered the V1, most of the lens, and the flash. I realized I was getting a Nikon 1camera so that I dont have to carry so much camera equipment. I cancelled the V1, and Ipurchased the J1 black instead. I am glad I did.I think for most people the J1 and 10 - 30 mm kit is the best choice. The 10mm pancake lens isnice if you want to do a lot of shooting in low light, but you cant zoom. Most of you are used tozooming, and when you cant get closer with your feet because of some barrier, you wont behappy. Many are posting that the 30 - 100 mm lens is very good too. I would have gotten thatone for my J1, but I have Nikon lens for my Nikon dSLR D5100. I plan on buying the adapter soI can use my current dSLR Nikon lenses on the J1 for fun.The J1 is a great little camera, but you do need to read parts of the manual. If you are someonewho likes to capture the moment, this camera is very good in bright light. The colors (whitebalance) is very good, and in bright light the camera will focus more quickly than most camerasout there. This is great camera for someone (example, my wife) who likes to just shoot and notworry too much about all the photographic technical mumbo jumbo.The Nikon 1 cameras are very good in both pictures and video. I think there is one othermirrorless brand that does video as good as the Nikon 1 cameras. When I use my D5100 NikondSLR for video, I just have to accept the fact that there will be enough moments where theD5100 is trying to find focus, and so the video will have many small instances of a blurrypicture. For most of us, the video of the Nikon 1 J1 will be very good for our family and socialevents. The Nikon 1 J1 has better auto focus video than any dSLRs out there.My previous small camera was the Canon S90. I really liked it. I have compared the J1 to theS90. You have to increase the sharpness in the J1 menu settings to match the sharpness of theS90. The J1 beats the S90 in color accuracy. I love the colors (white balance) from this newcamera. It is as good or slightly better than my Nikon D5100, which is a great dSLR.I am enjoying this new toy. Hanging the camera on my neck or shoulder is much morecomfortable than my DSLR. If you can afford it, I recommend getting the J1 10 - 30 mm kit. Inbright light it is fantastic with great fast focus and great color. You do need to read the manual onthe topics of vibration reduction (VR) and active dynamic lighting. For pictures you will wantthe VR to be on normal most of the time. For video, you probably will need to put VR onactive. This is currently the best camera for both very good pictures AND very good video. As afather, I really regret not taking enough small video clips of my kids, especially of themspeaking. Like any camera, you do need to use good holding technique, read the manual, andlearn to use this new toy if you want to get the most out of it. If you just like to point and shoot,this will do that too.96 of 109 people found the following review helpful.The Underdog CameraBy Sara BretonSo, I feel like this camera isnt getting enough credit. I own a D7000 and quite honestly, thenegative reviews are happening because theyre comparing DSLRs. STOP. You absolutely
cannot compare the Nikon 1 to a DSLR. As far as the facts go, this camera does everythingadvertised. I am completely satisfied with it. When I dont feel like lugging my D7000 around, Igrab this camera. In fact, I cant wait to bring it home with me for Christmas because I can getnearly the same quality as I would a D7000 shot. BUT, you do need to treat it MUCH differentlythan a DSLR so please dont purchase this wonderful camera because you think its going toperform like a DSLR because it has removable lenses... it will not, so spend time with thiscamera and learn its soft spots and what works for you.See all 158 customer reviews...My Associates Store | Shopping Cart Browse by CategoryPatio Furniture SetsCamera & Photo Similar ItemsNikon CB-N2000SB White Leather B...$49.95Nikon CB-N2000SE Red Leather Bod...$39.95Nikon EN-EL20 Rechargeable Li-io...$39.95
