Nikon 1 J1 Digital Camera Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Details

Nikon 1 J1 Digital Camera Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Details: The Nikon 1 J1 is half of the duo comprising the Nikon 1 system. The other one is the Nikon 1 V1. The Nikon 1 is the first line of mirror-less compact system cameras launched by Nikon Corporation, following Panasonic’s example three years prior. The Nikon 1 system introduced the first new Nikon lens mount since 1959 and at the same time, it also introduced a new and smaller sensor size.
Differentiating between the Nikon 1 J1 and V1, the J1 lacks an electronic viewfinder and it has a lower resolution LCD screen. The J1 is also the more entry-level and cheaper among the two.
The Nikon 1 J1 is available in five different colors: grey, black, white, red, and pink. It is compact and lightweight that makes for easy portability be it for a vacation or for everyday use.
The design of the Nikon 1 J1 is very simple and streamline yet fashionable and of high quality. The graphical user interface is also simple and integrated. There are no flashy decorations, just essential brand names and models and the physical buttons. The rear grip is designed for a firm hold. The interchangeable lens also comes with the same colors as that of the camera.

The Nikon 1 J1 features a newly developed, super high-speed AF CMOS sensor with a pixel count of 10.1 MP. It is the world’s first image sensor among cameras with interchangeable lenses that is able to implement phase-detection AF. This means, that the camera will have very fast auto focusing and enhanced image quality for both image capture and for shooting a movie. The phase-detection AF which is embedded in the sensor, can track fast moving objects and capture them vividly by having 73 points that recognizes the moving subject as a plane second in AF-S mode. This enables continuous capture of the image while the AF follows the fast moving object, all the while keeping sharp focus.
The Nikon 1 J1 also features very fast shooting at maximum speed of 10 frames per second in AF-A mode. The camera also has active D-lighting that enables capture of details of light and shadow in high contrast situations and, at the same time, the camera is also able to adjust automatically to the best balance of high contrast scenes to minimize loss of details under strong lighting. The natural exposures can also be adjusted using matrix metering to suit every situation and subject.
The Nikon 1 J1 also has Nikon’s unique system called Picture control wherein the user can customize and adjust the picture settings to suit the subject. There are six different settings: vivid, monochrome, neutral, standard, landscape, and portrait. It also comes with ViewNX 2, which fine-tunes the images after they have been taken.
Another feature of the Nikon 1 J1 is Motion Snapshot. This functionality can be activated by pressing the shutter-release button while at the Motion Snapshot mode. The image is then captured in both still image and as a movie clip with 2.5 x slow motion. In addition to Motion Snapshot, there is also a Smart Photo Selector that enables the camera to take a total of 20 shots before and after the shutter-release is pressed. It will then automatically select the most vivid shots from the photos taken.
The lens mount system of the Nikon 1 J1 mentioned earlier was developed to accompany Nikon’s new imaging format. The mount supports 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mmf/ 3.5-5.6, 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110 mmf/ 3.8-5.6, 1 NIKKOR 10mm f/2.8, and 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mmf/ 4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM interchangeable lenses as well as F-mount NIKKOR lenses. This will enable a wide variety of images and expressions never before experienced in a compact camera.
Overall, the Nikon 1 J1 is indeed a high performance compact digital camera. The market will mostly be for casual users that will benefit much on the speed, compact size and enjoyable features of this camera.
