Enthusiasts expecting every bell and whistle may want to look elsewhere, but for those who can manage the occasional sacrifice for a camera and lenses that won't weigh you down, the Nikon J1 is worthy of serious consideration.Pros
Very small body, with solid feel; Fast AF; No-nonsense interface. Excellent video capture, Good picture quality.Cons
Body could be smaller for sensor size; High ISO isn't as good as other compact system cameras; Battery life below average; Weak flash; Confusing controls.Price and availability
The Nikon J1 shipped in the US market from October 2011. The J1 is sold in three different kit versions, all of which include a 10-30mm zoom lens. The single-lens kit has suggested retail pricing of around US$650. Two twin-lens kits, which add either a 10mm prime lens or a 30-110mm zoom lens, are each available for about US$900. The Nikon J1 is sold in a variety of body/lens color choices that let the fashion-conscious match their own personal style. Body and zoom lens color choices include black, silver, white, red, and pink, while the prime lens is available in all of these except pink.Imaging Resource rating
