Revolutionary new Nikon 1 system breaks visual barriers

Innovation in technology and design

Today, all it takes is a single imaging device to capture and share every moment of an incredible and connected life. Nikon brings an evolution in imaging technology, starting with a newly developed Nikon CX-format super high-speed AF CMOS sensor that powers every capture. Ensure image precision through the new, compact interchangeable lens system featuring image stabilization (VR) and superior fast and quiet autofocus motors built on the NIKKOR heritage of optical excellence.

Focus that's as fast as you

Capture all the action

Not a moment is missed with a camera that keeps up with you! Always on the go, you know moments worth sharing can happen all the time. Don't let your creativity be hindered by slow focus speed; Nikon 1 J1 delivers an amazing 10 fps speed in autofocus mode. Grab every turn of the swimmer as he leaps from the high dive and glides into the water below. Even fast moving action like this is rendered with amazing clarity—thanks to an incredible 73 point AF array continuously working to ensure everything is sharp and clear.

For moments that deserve more

Motion Snapshot brings photos to life

Certain snapshots from life evoke emotions that just cannot be retold with merely a photograph. Remember the feelings you had while watching a wave crash to the shore or fireworks exploding overhead? Make those moments come alive in a single click using Motion Snapshot. Reveal the essence that can't be captured in a single photo.

Share a richer experience

Simultaneously capture Full HD (1080p) movies and photos

There will be moments when you're recording a great movie and an opportunity to grab an amazing photo comes along. Capture both at the same time! Start your movie recording with a touch of a button. See that great still? Hit the shutter even during record mode. Autofocus keeps everything sharp, working double duty to simultaneously capture both movies and photos. Infuse even more personality into multimedia creations by adding slow motion. For times when photos alone are not enough, family and friends will appreciate your expressions brought to life.

Get the best of what's seen

Let the camera do the work with Smart Photo Selector

For all the times you wished your camera could capture those great spontaneous moments while they unfolded in front of you, there is Nikon 1. Have too many blurry or poorly lit photos? Or how many photos do you have where someone's eyes were shut? With a single touch using Smart Photo Selector there are no more imperfect photos. Get the best of what you see. Engage in the moment while you let the camera do the work for you.

Creativity expanded with 1 NIKKOR Lenses

Compact, light, high performance optics

Expand creativity and select from a range of lens options, including one designed specifically for movie filming. Engineered for fast and easy swap-out, stay photo-ready all the time. Compactness brings portability, whether using the single focal length 10mm or the 30-110mm telephoto. 1 NIKKOR lenses feature Vibration Reduction (VR) to keep photos sharp, extending a heritage of precision symbolized by durability, superior image quality and optical excellence.
EXPEED 3 processor

EXPEED 3 marks the culmination of years of dedication to advancing digital imaging technologies. At the heart of Nikon 1 is EXPEED 3, with dual image processors, to deliver outstanding system performance, high-speed processing, state-of-the-art phase detection autofocus and the fastest data transfer rates. Witness outstanding image quality, tone reproduction and advanced autofocus at unprecedented speeds.

Low light

An advanced, innovative Nikon super high-speed AF CMOS imaging sensor, wide ISO range and option to select the best lens for the job give you even more control over the light. Produce amazing photos in all those moody environments. Tap only ambient light and open the most artistic doors to photographing on the dance floor, nabbing dramatic sunsets and candlelit moments.

LCD monitor

Check your creativity: frame and share your creations on the large and sharp three-inch LCD color display. An ultra-high resolution screen featuring 460k-dots shows every detail to precision. An anti-glare coating renders easy viewing of photos and HD movies, even outdoors.

Intuitive simplicity

Easy access to advanced features are hallmarks of the Nikon 1 system. From the ultra intuitive command and features buttons, easy-to-understand menu and fast mount lens, you'll be expressing your thoughts and visions as never before. Even advanced features for photos and movies can be created with one-click ease.

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

After each shot is taken in 'photo' mode on the Nikon1J1, the captured image flashes briefly, before returning to a shooting mode. So you briefly go into 'review' mode, and then back into shooting mode. This is annoying and time consuming. Can you disable this function, typically called "image review?"

Answer: 
Nikon 1 J1 does not have auto exposure bracketing. However, you can use the exposure meter in manual mode to take underexposed, properly exposed, and overexposed images but not with one shutter click.

Answer: 
Yes, the Nikon 1 J1 has bulb mode and it can be use with the ML-L3 wireless remote.
See page 61, 106, and 111 - 113 in the NIKON 1 J1 user manual. Pressing the shutter button on the remote once will open the shutter and pressing the button once more will close the shutter.

Nikon doesn't make a 1 Nikkor macro lens so you will need the adapter and a Nikkor lens.

Regardless of auto ISO or manual ISO high or low only photographs able to get are those on low shutter speeds. Set f stop at f/4-5.6-8 all the up with various shutter speeds only can get shots to register at very low shutter speeds. Otherwide black and no picture?
What can I set in menu or simply what steps can I take even on secure tripod to raise shutter speed to capture stop motion on humming bird or any moving object in this setup?
Light levels good morning light but still no action shots? Using this setup for my wifes camera not my pro equipment but would like her to be able to use J1 with FT1 adapter and 300mm lens on reasonable shooting level.
