Nikon J2 Camera

The Nikon 1, J2 is basically a revision of the J1 camera released around 12 months ago.

It offers speed of operation and simplicity. It has a lightning quick image processor, EXPEED 3 and Smart Photo Selector.

The advanced hybrid auto focus system offers a  “phase-detection AF”, superb for shooting fast action and a “contrast-detect AF” excellent for capturing exceptional details in poorly lit conditions.

A new Creative mode has been added to the four original J1 shooting modes , allowing for easy specification of the desired shooting scenes from a total of eight options, including Night Landscape. Also the monitor visibility has been increased with a high-resolution, 921k-dot LCD monitor.

These Nikon 1 cameras are ideal for a very small travelling companions.

They can also be used with the larger DX and FX camera lenses with this adaptor.

I have seen some very interesting images taken with these Nikon 1 cameras with longer telephoto lenses using the adaptor.

I quite like the range of Nikon 1 cameras but I do prefer the DSLR cameras with a larger sensor.
