Nikon 1 J2 Review

 

The Nikon 1 J2 is a stylish compact system camera featuring a 10-megapixel “CX” format sensor and the Nikon 1 lens mount. Boasting continuous shooting speeds of up to 60 frames per second at full resolution, Full HD video capture, an ultra-fast hybrid...

The Nikon 1 J2 has a better screen, some new creative effects, more colours, a textured grip on some models, and a slightly lower price tag, but otherwise it's purely an incremental upgrade of last year's J1 rather than a full-blown replacement. The...

Nikon 1 J2

 

Nikon has announced a modest upgrade to their popular J1 in the J2. Specifications are almost entirely the same, still a 10.1 megapixel sensor, 1080/60p video, and 10fps burst with autofocus, but the screen resolution has jumped to 921,000 dots from...

Nikon 1 J2 review

 

The Nikon 1 J2 is the brand's third compact system camera, and the first for 2012. Building on the Nikon 1 J1, is this update enough?

Cool, compact body, Neat pop-up flash, Approachable menu system

Not much change from J1, Same price as basic DSLR, No built-in image stabiliser

It won't appeal to photographic tinkerers, but the stylish design and dependable image and video quality add up to a good deal

Nikon 1 J2 review

 

There is no electronic viewfinder but the fixed 3-inch screen has had its resolution upped from 460k dots to 921K, not that one can immediately tell. While battery life has stayed the same as the J1 for stills, should you choose the maximum 60fps frame...

This one’s looks outstrip performance, but small size and access to a wide range of lenses via adapter make it a sound option, though going for the older and cheaper J1 might be the sensible idea.

Nikon 1 J2

 

The J2 is a small update to the Nikon 1 series of interchangeable lens cameras, with a higher-resolution screen and new colours among the main changes.

Nikon is set to release the J2 in a number of colours, including white, black, silver and pink. It's not yet known which colour configurations will be made available in Australia, or local pricing.

Nikon 1 J2 review

 

The first generation of cameras will always need some degree of tweaking before they really deliver what the user wants. While the J2 is a nice camera and offers some improvements over the J1, it doesn't feel like it has gone far enough to progress the...
