Nikon 1 J1 Review

Nikon arrived a bit later to the Mirrorless party with the Nikon 1 V1 and Nikon 1 J1 compact interchangeable lens cameras. What sets both mirrorless cams apart from the Micro Four Thirds crowd (pioneered by Olympus and Panasonic) is that they both feature a brand new sensor size: the 1-inch CX type sensor. Hence the name Nikon 1. The Nikon 1-inch CX sensor is slightly smaller than the Four Thirds size sensor, yet plenty larger than a 1/1.7-inch advanced point-and-shoot chip. But in the end, the Nikon 1 J1 produced image quality that was on par with the Olympus E-PM1, and in some cases it was even more impressive. The J1’s sleek, minimalist design and sexy color options will appeal to beginners and…girls. Yes, I could not go anywhere with the J1 without being mobbed by girls asking me how I liked the “Ashton Kutcher camera.” In the end, the Nikon 1 J1 proved itself as a solid digital imaging device with a performance any advanced shooter would admire. But is the J1 enough to trump the Olympus E-PM1? Head on over to TechnoBuffalo for the full review here:
