IM­AGE QUAL­ITY & PER­FOR­MANCE - NIKON 1 J4

HWM (Singapore) - - Test -

With 105 phase de­tects and 171 con­trast de­tect points, it’s easy to see why the J4 was the speed­i­est of the bunch. Aut­o­fo­cus was quick and ac­cu­rate, and the cam­era does up to 60fps con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing with fixed fo­cus. We found that im­ages from the J4 had a slight cyan cast, and the me­ter­ing sys­tem con­sis­tently un­der­ex­posed im­ages slightly. It also seems the pref­er­ence is to move to a higher ISO set­ting rather than a slower shut­ter, which makes for added noise in the im­ages. Com­pared to the oth­ers, the J4 ap­plies noise re­duc­tion the most ag­gres­sively, which leads to im­ages with a lot of smudg­ing. Thus, we’d rec­om­mend stay­ing be­low ISO 1600 for this one.

Im­ages from the Nikon J4 have a slight cyan cast.

At lower ISOs, you get a good amount of de­tail.

At ISO 3200, de­tails are no­tice­ably blurred.
