Nikon 1 J4 Mirrorless Camera

Nikon 1 J4


Nikon 1 J4

The new Niklon 1 J4 is a new iteration of the Nikon mirrorless cameras. It may be the ideal camera for photographers who require a smaller but high performing camera. This camera has an extremely high shooting speed of 20 frames per second with autofocus that is faster than even a D-SLR camera.

It will give very high quality shots with the J4’s newly developed 18.4 megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4A image-processing engine. It has a capability of clearer photos at night with a wide range of ISO sensitivities ranging from ISO 160 to 6400 in Auto mode. The J4 has also been designed without an Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF) sensor to improve the detail and precision of the images you capture.

The J4 is one of the smallest and lightest cameras in its class, weighing only 232g (including battery and microSD memory card) and measuring 99.5mm (width) x 60mm (height) x 28.5mm (depth).

Capture the action and drama of life with the J4’s superior continuous AF performance and ability to shoot Full HD movies at 1080/60p.

Use the SB-N10 Underwater Speedlight with 4 flash modes to ensure you are never in the dark when it comes to superb pictures of the deep blue sea.
