    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # 27534 )


    Focus that's as fast as you

    Capture all the action

    Not a moment is missed with a camera that keeps up with you! Always on the go, you know moments worth sharing can happen all the time. Don't let your creativity be hindered by slow focus speed; Nikon 1 J1 delivers an amazing 10 fps speed in autofocus mode. Grab every turn of the swimmer as he leaps from the high dive and glides into the water below. Even fast moving action like this is rendered with amazing clarity—thanks to an incredible 73 point AF array continuously working to ensure everything is sharp and clear.

    For moments that deserve more

    Motion Snapshot brings photos to life

    Certain snapshots from life evoke emotions that just cannot be retold with merely a photograph. Remember the feelings you had while watching a wave crash to the shore or fireworks exploding overhead? Make those moments come alive in a single click using Motion Snapshot. Reveal the essence that can't be captured in a single photo.

    Share a richer experience

    Simultaneously capture Full HD (1080p) movies and photos

    There will be moments when you're recording a great movie and an opportunity to grab an amazing photo comes along. Capture both at the same time! Start your movie recording with a touch of a button. See that great still? Hit the shutter even during record mode. Autofocus keeps everything sharp, working double duty to simultaneously capture both movies and photos. Infuse even more personality into multimedia creations by adding slow motion. For times when photos alone are not enough, family and friends will appreciate your expressions brought to life.

    Get the best of what's seen

    Let the camera do the work with Smart Photo Selector

    For all the times you wished your camera could capture those great spontaneous moments while they unfolded in front of you, there is Nikon 1. Have too many blurry or poorly lit photos? Or how many photos do you have where someone's eyes were shut? With a single touch using Smart Photo Selector there are no more imperfect photos. Get the best of what you see. Engage in the moment while you let the camera do the work for you.
