Impress even yourself

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!

Enjoy the view

Framing perfect shots is easier than ever, thanks to Nikon 1 J2's ultra-high-resolution display with anti-glare coating. Whether you're indoors or outdoors, every shot is rendered in an astounding 921K-dots of resolution, giving your photos and HD movies bright, life-like vibrancy. Share your creations and watch as your viewer's eyes widen with amazement.

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.

Master the camera in no time

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

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.
