We've just posted our first set of lab test shots from a production-level Nikon J1!
The J1's CX-format image sensor has an effective resolution of 10.1 megapixels, with a diagonal of approximately 15.9mm. That's quite a lot larger than the 7.7mm chip used in Pentax's Q, but significantly smaller than 21.6mm Micro Four Thirds and ~28mm APS-C sensors. Nikon couples its new CX-format imager with a new EXPEED 3 image processing engine featuring dual imaging pipelines. The standard ISO-equivalent sensitivity range for the Nikon J1 is ISO 100 to 3,200, and a Hi-1 position allows this to be extended to a maximum of ISO 6,400.

Stay tuned for more test shots soon!
