COM­PACT PLEA­SURE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

Ul­nike the Nikon 1 V1, the cheaper J1 does not have an elec­tronic view finder and it has a pop-up flash which the el­der brother was miss­ing. But the same dif­fer­en­tia­tors might end up mak­ing this a more pop­u­lar cam­era. For in­stance, you do not need to buy and carry along a speed­light if you own a J1. As with the V1, the Nikkor lenses are what will set the J1 apart from the rest of the mir­ror­less pack. Just try shoot­ing a Full HD video at the 110mm end of the zoom lens and you will re­alise how fast the lens is and how sharp the images are.

Then there is Nikon’s unique mo­tion snap­shot tech­nol­ogy which keeps click­ing mul­ti­ple images as long as you keep the shut­ter pressed and present the same like a time lapse video. How­ever, these func­tions end up be­ing data guz­zlers and it is ad­vised that you use at least an 8GB card with the Nikon 1 se­ries cam­eras.
