Nikon 1 j 1 review

Updated on February 18, 2014

David vs Goliath

The Nikon 1j1 allows the amateur photographer to take professional quality photos at a fraction of the cost. With the world's fastest auto focus, the 1J1 saves time usually spent setting up for a shot. There is one simple reason I am reviewing the Nikon 1J1, it takes beautiful pictures. All the photo's featured in this article were taken by my friend Roger Dougherty. Roger takes photo's the way I do, he sees a worthy shot and he points and shoots..

The J1 stacks up nicely to models costing considerably more. While it may not have the connectivity of more expensive cameras, it does connect via USB and HDMI. Some of the features it shares with the Canon EOS 7 D are facial recognition and image stabilization. The J1 has 3 file formats; jpeg, raw, and raw+jpeg. The J1 has face priority and subject tracking autofocus, where the Canon does not. The j1 also has 4 different scene modes, including, landscape, close-up, portrait, and night portrait. One of the drawbacks of the J1 is that it is not waterproof, but as long as you are not shooting in the rain that should not be a problem. The J1 is perfect for someone who has not learned basic terminology such as ISO, noise, and aperture which is the equivalent of f stop.

My fascination with camera's began in the late 1970's when I saw my grandfather photograph birds in flight. I was fascinated by the way he could capture the birds mid-flight. This was the first time I learned about shutter speed and Nikon cameras.

These beautiful Florida sunsets are brilliantly captured by the Nikon 1J1. The J1's autofocus features are what allows for such brilliant clarity. Let the professionals spend hours waiting for the "Perfect" shot, with the compact size of the J1 you are always ready to capture the moment.
