This camera is wonderful. The range of settings and availabilities on the Nikon 1J1 are endless. It captures so much light, I took a picture of a dark corner in my basement, and without any flash or anything, the picture looked like I had taken it in one of the fully lit places. Truly wonderful action camera too, not much blur or anything. I made a video with my friends the other day and it honestly looks like a professional film, and that is just with the lens that it comes with and no other attachments. I can't wait to see how far I can go with the other attachments at my aid!

Great quality and very compact!
Great camera for all purposes. You will love it! Nikon J1 will deliver the quality your expecting in every shot. I'm new to photography but this camera has made it a delight. I would highly recommend it. I would love for Nikon to produce a back pack for this camera and it's accessories. Every bag I review is to big.
Bought this camera to take on an Alaska cruise. I purchased the two-lens zoom kit. I have only owned point-and-shoot auto-focus cameras before, so I was ready to move up to the next level. After spending some time to learn the features and different modes, I was very excited to use the camera to take landscape and wildlife shots. While our trip was lacking in wildlife, the landscapes were gorgeous and I believe this camera captured the landscapes beautifully. The telephoto lens, in particular, was great and the images I captured are nothing short of amazing. Using the Electronic (Hi) mode to take photos of the glaciers in Glacier Bay calving, I was able to capture ice chunks in mid-air. Using a polarizing filter, water glare from the ship was greatly diminished, and the detail I was able get was stunning (at least in my eyes). As much as I enjoyed using the camera in Alaska, I have really enjoyed using it around my town taking pictures of flowers, landscapes, insects, etc. The size makes it easy to haul around, and with the addition of the 10MM f/2.8 prime lens, it is the complete package for an amateur photographer like myself. I would highly recommend this for the amateur who wants to step up from a point-and-shoot to something more advanced.
Great Photographs in a small package
I own a Nikon D7000, Nikon D90 and Nikon P7100. My Nikon 1 J1 shots are much better then my Nikon P7100 and in low light match my DSLR'S. I own the 10-30mm and 30-110mm lens which produce great photographs. The size of The Nikon 1 J1 is so compact you can use it when you don't want to carry a DSLR. My Nikon P7100 is great for parties but for low light the Nikon 1 J1 beats it hands down. The built in flash is great. I wish it had an optical viewfinder however the LCD is very bright.
Excellent camera in a small package.
Crystal clear viewfinder and playback is the same.No guess work in choosing a scene mode as the camera does it automatically.Impressed with the night shots.Video capture is also excellent with the 1080HD.Great camera with the versatillity to change lenses and not break your neck packing it around all day.
I just returned from 3 weeks in S America, cycling in Argentina and hiking in Chile/Patagonia. My V1 was the perfect camera, far superior to any point and shoot and much more compact than any DSLR, the photos are remarkable, used the 10-30 lens mostly but was very happy to zoom in on wildlife with the 30-110, the AF is super fast, even got great shots without flash of a Tango performance using the smart photo mode. All in all I couldn't be happier with this camera
I was originally looking into getting a bigger Nikon DSLR, but couldnt see myself toting it around everywhere. This camera is a great compromise between a standard point and shoot and a DSLR. The camera without the lense is the same size as a normal point and shoot camera, and the lenses are high quality and being able to change them in and out is a great plus. The picture quality is amazing and this camera is very easy to use.
Great family camera
This camera is easy to assemble, easy to read and takes great pictures even in low light with no flash! There also isn't a long pause between when you push the button and the picture takes, unlike other digital cameras and phones, so you don't miss action shots. The only down is the dial for the modes of the camera is easy to move and I would often find when I went to take a picture, I was in video mode and it wouldn't take the picture. Overall, this was a good camera and I like that I will be able to add to the lenses and change them as I become more adventurous with this camera.
Exceptional but has it's limitations
I purchased this camera (before J2 and J3 were on the market) as I have always been interested in photography but no experience. I was inept when it came to the working knowledge of cameras. I chose the J1 due to its price compared to mainstream DSLRs but with many of the same features. This camera takes great pictures indoors and outdoors. It shoots very fast in continuous mode. I was able to shoot up to 14 shots in max resolution before the buffer got full with a transcend class 10 32gb card. Colors are vibrant, whites are white, blacks are blacks with very little grain. I prefer to shoot low light like sunrises and sunsets. This produces a lot of unwanted grain in the gray's, light blues, etc. But this is common with smaller sensor cameras and not inherent with the Nikon brand or this model. My only complaint is that this model is only 10 megapixels. The J2 and J3 are now 14. Most other cameras in this class are around 16mp. Even most point and shoot cameras average around the 16mp range. I would like to see this class in the 18-24 mp range.
Great for travel!
I picked this camera out for Christmas last year, and so far I am very happy with it. I wish that Nikon had a Nikkor Macro lens for it, because I like to take macro shots of flowers, etc. I love how you can control it like a bigger DSLR (D3200) My overall opinion is, if you travel a lot and need something compact, sleek and stylish... Then go for it. Otherwise I would stick with a larger camera that is a little more "meatier". Before I forget I LOVE how nice and VIVID the pictures are!
