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 amera in not 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.
921K-dot ultra-high-resolution 3.0-inch LCD
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.
