IMAGE QUALITY & PERFORMANCE - NIKON 1 J4
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.
