Nikon 1 J2 review

 

The Nikon 1 J2 is the brand's third compact system camera, and the first for 2012. Building on the Nikon 1 J1, is this update enough?

Cool, compact body, Neat pop-up flash, Approachable menu system

Not much change from J1, Same price as basic DSLR, No built-in image stabiliser

It won't appeal to photographic tinkerers, but the stylish design and dependable image and video quality add up to a good deal

Nikon 1 J2 review

 

There is no electronic viewfinder but the fixed 3-inch screen has had its resolution upped from 460k dots to 921K, not that one can immediately tell. While battery life has stayed the same as the J1 for stills, should you choose the maximum 60fps frame...

This one’s looks outstrip performance, but small size and access to a wide range of lenses via adapter make it a sound option, though going for the older and cheaper J1 might be the sensible idea.

The first generation of cameras will always need some degree of tweaking before they really deliver what the user wants. While the J2 is a nice camera and offers some improvements over the J1, it doesn't feel like it has gone far enough to progress the...

Nikon J2 review

 

Second generation Compact System Camera finds it hard to improve on perfection

Cool design, metal build, simple intuitive handling, a twist of the lens powers the camera up or down (if using the kit zoom), creative mode for more experimental users, slight boost in LCD resolution

Though the market has moved on, hardly a jot has changed feature-wise when compared to the year-old J1, picture quality is acceptable but only marginally better than your average snapshot

This one’s looks outstrip performance, but small size and access to a wide range of lenses via adapter make it a sound option, though going for the older and cheaper J1 might be the sensible idea.
