Nikon 1 J4 review

 

The Nikon 1 J4 may be a good mirrorless camera, but Nikon really needs to turn up the volume when you consider the strong competition.

Although Nikon 1 cameras are big sellers, we’ve never been their biggest fans, and the J4 has done little to raise our opinion. Nikon DSLRs, on the other hand, are a completely different – and better – story, even though they’re bigger and more...

Nikon says May ship, $650 USD for Nikon 1 J4

 

Over a month ago, Nikon announced its Nikon 1 J4 everywhere but the US. Now it gets a little publicity boost by making it official here.

Nikon 1 J4 Review

 

The Nikon 1 J4 is a new compact system camera featuring an 18-megapixel “CX” format sensor with no low-pass filter and the Nikon 1 lens mount. Boasting continuous shooting speeds of 20fps with continuous autofocus and 60fps with fixed-point autofocus,...

The new Nikon 1 J4 offers a lot of the features from the flagship V3 model at a much more enticing price-point, making it a better-balanced camera that's our pick of the current Nikon 1 line-up.

Nikon 1 J4 Review: Super Small and Super Fast

 

Physics is still a hard thing to beat. We still haven't found a camera with a 1-inch sensor that matches the performance of mainstream DSLRs and mirrorless cameras with sensors three times as large. Nor have we found a single best 1-inch sensor camera....

Small, light and attractive design ; Near-instantaneous autofocus, even in low light ; Touch-screen controls make good use of limited space ; Crazy continuous shooting up to 60 fps

Notable loss of detail above ISO 800 ; Tiny, slick body hard to hold comfortably ; Limited dynamic range in high-contrast settings

Nikon's 1 J4 is superportable and insanely fast to focus and shoot, but it doesn't shine in low light.

Nikon 1 J4 Mirrorless Camera - Small and Speedy

 

The Nikon 1 system is fairly mature by now, and the Nikon 1 J4 is the latest addition to Nikon's mirrorless line-up. Does an improved AF system, touchscreen and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity make the J4 a worthy upgrade? We cover what else is new with...

Fast autofocus and continuous shooting rate ; Touchscreen makes navigating menus simple ; Easy for beginners to pick up ; Built-in Wi-Fi support

Poor high ISO performance ; Images have a slight cyan cast

Overall, the Nikon 1 J4 is a capable performer that offers you quality images (at ISO settings below 3200) in a compact package. It handles well, and the inclusion of a touchscreen has made it a lot easier to get through the menus so experienced users...

The Nikon 1 J4 is a compact SLD with a unique 18 megapixels sensor which provides ultra-fast Phase-Detect autofocus, continuous shooting up to 60 FPS and full 1080p HD video. The J4 packs this into an very compact and sturdy body which features a...

Ultra-fast autofocus until very low light, Usable up to ISO 3200, Excellent metering, Virtually no blackout without Instant Review, Superb shot-to-shot speed without Instant Review, Quick and responsive, Good LCD sharpness, Extremely quiet, Solid build...

Above average image noise, Severe image softness, Narrow dynamic range, Instant Review impacts performance, Incorrect exposure and white-balance preview, Very few direct controls, Short battery-life

The Nikon 1 J4 is one of the rare cameras to perform at both extremes of the spectrum. Under the right conditions, it is impressively fast and ultra-quiet. The hybrid 171-area and 105-point autofocus system is something to behold. Although it slows...
