Impress even yourself

Endless creativity and inspiration

Nikon 1 J2's Creative Mode makes it easy to turn the ordinary into extraordinary. Leave everything black & white except your child's bright red hat. Create mind-boggling panoramic photos simply by panning the camera side-to-side or up and down. Bring a moment to life with a unique Motion Snapshot, or simultaneously shoot Full HD (1080p) videos and still photos. The possibilities are endless!

Catch sights you've never seen

Truly extraordinary speed and precision

When you can freeze action with the speed and precision of the Nikon 1 system, you catch views of the world you've never seen—water droplets defying gravity, the very beginning of a smile, birthday candles resisting the best efforts of a child. The Nikon 1's remarkably advanced autofocus system moves at the speed of life, so you'll catch more fast-moving subjects and spontaneous candid moments with outstanding clarity.

Master the camera in no time

Elegantly simple, remarkably intuitive

The Nikon 1 system was designed to help you spend more time creating and less time fussing with your camera. When the moment strikes, simply turn the lens—the camera automatically powers up, autofocuses in an instant and fires off razor-sharp shot after shot. All of the key controls and dials are at your fingertips, and the settings you like most are available from one-touch shortcuts. In no time at all, you'll be shooting with confidence.

Increase your capabilities

Exceptional interchangeable 1 NIKKOR lenses

One of the secrets to Nikon 1's superior image quality is its superior optics: 1 NIKKOR lenses. Designed from the ground up, the 1 NIKKOR collection brings the optical advancements of Nikon's renowned NIKKOR D-SLR lenses to the technological advancements of the Nikon 1 system. Each lightweight, compact lens offers an exciting new view of your world.

Record your memories in motion

When you can seamlessly go from shooting beautiful stills to videos, you'll find more opportunities to tell stories with movies. Capture in Full HD resolutions—1080/30p or 1080/60i—for stunning playback on your high-definition TV. You can even bend time with ultra-smooth slow motion videos.

Low light, high performance

Like all Nikons, Nikon 1 J2 captures sharp, noise-free images even in low-light situations. With built-in modes for Night Portrait and Night Landscape and an ISO range from 100 (for very bright days) all the way up to 3200 (for the dimmest conditions) your shots will always shine.

Great Camera! I just purchased this camera and have been taking lots of test photos to get the hang of it. Its very light, the lenses are extremely easy to change. I haven't tested out all the features, but I'm sure they will work great! The color is fantastic also. The pictures are very clear and the auto focus is quick also. May 30, 2013
Awesome little camera! I love using this camera. It is small, yet does everything the big guys do without the weight. I enjoyed using it on a biking trip, and look forward to using it next week in NY. It takes some amazing shots, I love the creative setting. Everyone has commented on the photos I've posted using that setting. I don't feel that I'm missing out on anything using this camera. I get to take action shots, and then pick the ones I like or use the one the camera picks. Great buy! October 18, 2012
more features than I know what to do with Perfect entry level camera. Love the simplicity. Love the system. I would certainly recommend this camera and camera system. March 11, 2013

Answer: 
Well, the Nikon 1 cameras I have had make nice high definition videos, but I would suspect if you are making videos to sell professionally then a nice dedicated video camera would be better. If you just show the videos to your family, then this camera should be fine.

Answer: 
Correct. This camera is not about art filters and a ton of scene modes. This is a shooters camera for the person with an artful eye on composition and exposure. You can get into modifying the image in post if that is how you roll. Read up on all the reviews and you will be impressed.
