Nikon 1 J1 4 5 46 46
Very impressed Bought this camera to take on an Alaska cruise. I purchased the two-lens zoom kit. I have only owned point-and-shoot auto-focus cameras before, so I was ready to move up to the next level. After spending some time to learn the features and different modes, I was very excited to use the camera to take landscape and wildlife shots. While our trip was lacking in wildlife, the landscapes were gorgeous and I believe this camera captured the landscapes beautifully. The telephoto lens, in particular, was great and the images I captured are nothing short of amazing. Using the Electronic (Hi) mode to take photos of the glaciers in Glacier Bay calving, I was able to capture ice chunks in mid-air. Using a polarizing filter, water glare from the ship was greatly diminished, and the detail I was able get was stunning (at least in my eyes). As much as I enjoyed using the camera in Alaska, I have really enjoyed using it around my town taking pictures of flowers, landscapes, insects, etc. The size makes it easy to haul around, and with the addition of the 10MM f/2.8 prime lens, it is the complete package for an amateur photographer like myself. I would highly recommend this for the amateur who wants to step up from a point-and-shoot to something more advanced. August 1, 2013
Great Photographs in a small package I own a Nikon D7000, Nikon D90 and Nikon P7100. My Nikon 1 J1 shots are much better then my Nikon P7100 and in low light match my DSLR'S. I own the 10-30mm and 30-110mm lens which produce great photographs. The size of The Nikon 1 J1 is so compact you can use it when you don't want to carry a DSLR. My Nikon P7100 is great for parties but for low light the Nikon 1 J1 beats it hands down. The built in flash is great. I wish it had an optical viewfinder however the LCD is very bright. July 21, 2013
Excellent camera in small package. Do I need still my D50 ? I bought this camera week ago and must say.....great. I did not expect a much but after I take a few pictures and see them on my computer I was in shock. Really there is no differences between pictures taken using Nikon D50 and J1. I'm not professional photographer but this camera is awesome. To take a picture is very easy , and the quality of pictures especially in RAW format is so good. Also close up are amazing .Details are so clear and sharp .. Built in flash is the best I ever seen in compact camera . It was the best choice I ever made buying a camera. After few mistakes with "power shoot's" and other gizmos finally got a super compact DSLR quality camera with changeable lenses. July 6, 2013
Really nifty camera! This camera takes great shots that are almost at a professional level, and you can take it anywhere because of its small size. April 1, 2013
Amazing!!! This camera is a must in families. I don't know what I did without it for so long. Thought the one I had was good, but this is amazing! It's great for action sports. My family rides dirt bikes and now I can get clear action shots of them just about every time. I simply love this camera!!! February 27, 2013

Often the Nikon J1 will tell me that it cannot focus in very low light levels. Even if I put the flash up, it will not take the picture. Is there a mode where it will take the picture regardless of how much light there is?

Answer: 
There is not manual focus with the 1 series. Try enabling the AF assist light or using the center AF point, or auto AF point mode. Also, if selectable, try single servo AF mode (S instead of C).

Answer: 
Without seeing the camera it is difficult to analyze.
Are you in slow motion mode instead of HD? Slow motion will only record for a short time because of the frame rate, 4gb of space will record in less than 1 minute. If it is not that I suggest calling Nikon service and support. In the US it is 1-800-nikonus.

Answer: 
Movie can be upto 4 GB in size and 20 minutes in length. Note that depending on memory card write speed, shooting may end before this length is reached.

Check that the card should be SDHC-compliant. The camera support UHS-1. Nikon Approved memory cards are

SanDisk, Toshiba, Panasonic, Lexar Media, Platinum II, Professional, Full-HD Vedio.

Answer: 
The FT1 Mount Adapter allows you to use certain legacy F Mount NIKKOR lenses (those designed for use with Nikon D-SLR/SLR cameras) on the Nikon 1 V1. The Mount Adapter is attached to the Nikon 1 V1 and the F Mount NIKKOR lens then attached to the adapter. The FT1 will add an angle of view of 2.7 times that of the F Mount NIKKOR lens' focal length.

You always say the FT1 mount will let us use lenses designed for Nikon DSLRs. What about older F-mount lenses? Can I use older AF lenses? What about even older AI lenses? I'm willing to focus and meter manually. I just want to know if I can use my film-era lenses with these new cameras.

No,because a flange to focal plane distance (the distance between mount and image sensor) in Nikon 1 series is much smaller than in regular F-mount Nikon lenses (46.5 mm).
