Nikon 1 J4: $600 Point-and-Shoot Pretending to Be a Mirrorless Camera [REVIEW]

 

The Nikon 1 J4 is a small, handsome camera with good image quality, but it's not nearly as versatile as what you can get for an extra $100-200 more.

Good image quality for outdoors ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Minimalist design

Shutter lag ; Only 13 lenses to choose from ; Underwhelming low-light performance

The J4 is Nikon's best mirrorless camera to date with good image quality and incredible speed, but that doesn't cut it anymore when competitors have similarly priced mirrorless cameras with better image quality and larger lens portfolios.

Nikon 1 J4 Review

 

To begin with, the issues with the camera's operation are a pain, while the kit lens is less than impressive and the model really struggles at the higher ISO settings.

The J4 comes body-only for £429 or in a kit with a 10-30mm PD-ZOOM lens for £500. The camera is a decent mid-range CSC with a touchscreen, hybrid focusing, impressive video functionality and a shooting speed far faster than any other CSC in its class,...

Nikon 1 J4 review

 

The Nikon 1 J4 may be a good mirrorless camera, but Nikon really needs to turn up the volume when you consider the strong competition.

Although Nikon 1 cameras are big sellers, we’ve never been their biggest fans, and the J4 has done little to raise our opinion. Nikon DSLRs, on the other hand, are a completely different – and better – story, even though they’re bigger and more...
