The Nikon J1 With 10mm f2.8 pancake
At the recent Nikon J1 & V1 launch held last December at SM North’s Nikon Concept Store, we were able to check out the two new Interchangeable Lens Compact devices from the popular imaging company. The 1-Series cameras are compact, fast cameras with the ability to swap lenses – which allows it to be a much more versatile pocket camera. They’re designed for users who are looking for a portable and stylish shooter, but aren’t enticed the bulk of traditional DSLRs. Compared to the rest of the ILC crowd, Nikon’s offering has a slightly smaller sensor (2.7x crop) – both being an advantage and a disadvantage. The disadvantage being that smaller sensors are less effective in darker conditions, while the advantage is that it allows for Nikon to make the cameras blazingly fast – up to 60FPS burst shooting and even up to 1200FPS slow motion videos. But let’s not delay, check out our preview video below and sample images to get an idea of what we’re talking about!
(Note: This video is in 1080p, and might take a while to load, feel free to use 360p or 480p for faster loading if you don’t mind less quality.)
We’ve embedded the image samples (and video samples) on our video above, but if you need full res images, we got you covered. Check out a few of the images we took below. (EXIF data should be there too if you need it.)
That’s about it! Hope that’s helped you out in deciding if the Nikon 1-series is right for you. Now, wouldn’t it also be nice if we could review one? We can only hope!
Trivia: Our primary workhorse camera is a Nikon D5000.
