    There’s been a lot of talk about Nikon’s new 1 Series cameras, and a lot of disappointment over the CX sensor size, and the perceived lack of quality compared to Sony’s larger APS-C NEX cameras. Many enthusiasts have been understandably frustrated by this move, wanting the best of all worlds – D3 quality in a point and shoot body. The J1 doesn’t quite hit that mark, but if you understand what you’re buying and play to the camera’s strengths, it’s a great piece of gear for the beginner, enthusiast, and the pro alike.

    For clarification, I am primarily evaluating the J1 for its use *as a camera* – I won’t touch much on the video or motion snapshot modes.

    The Good:

    * As a part-time professional, I bought this camera primarily because of its size, and the ability (hopefully) to use my collection of F-mount lenses in the future. In this respect, the J1 is fantastic. My first mirrorless purchase was a Sony NEX-3, and I was overall very happy with it, but the size of the lens still made carrying it around a real chore. Unfortunately, this really comes down to physics – there are physical constraints on how small you can design a lens with a 55mm focal length (concretely, it can’t really be much less than 55mm in length). Fundamentally, this is where the CX format helps the J1 significantly. Due to its smaller sensor size, it is possible to construct equivalent lenses which are significantly smaller and lighter than for the APS-C format. The promise of being able to use standard-range high-quality zoom lenses (think a 17-55 f2.8, for instance) as mid-range telephotos is certainly intriguing. There is no such thing as a free lunch, and obviously the wide end and depth of field suffer here, but I am hopeful that Nikon or third party manufacturers will address that concern as much as they can. At the moment, however, the J1 with its kit lens is a camera that is, while not pants-pocketable, certainly coat-pocketable.

    * The autofocus system is fantastic, especially in good light. I’ve been particularly impressed at the ability of the J1 to track a subject around the frame. I’ve been a big fan of Nikon’s 3D tracking AF since I first saw it in action on the D300, but the J1 really takes it to a new level. The subject tracking mode is fast and very responsive, and once you’ve locked it on something, it does a very good job of staying with your targeted subject. Nikon claims that the J1 and V1 focus faster than the D3, and while I haven’t used a D3 in a while, the J1 focuses fast enough (in good light) that I wouldn’t doubt the claim.

    * Image quality is actually quite good. I was fearful of how bad the noise would be on a smaller sensor, but I’ve been reasonably impressed with the results so far. JPEG results out of the camera are not stellar at high ISO – there’s certainly some aggressive noise reduction going on – so you will certainly want to switch to RAW for best results. At present, ACR will not open J1 files, but Capture NX2 will. The ACR 6.6 beta results posted on dpreview.com are encouraging, being close to on-par with previous generation sensors (D90, D300, etc). Without access to the files in my normal workflow (Lightroom), it’s hard for me to make a direct comparison on how much you can eek out of a RAW file on the J1 compared to other cameras, but so far I’ve been pleased.

    UPDATE: Lightroom version 3.6 (beta) is out, and I’ve had a chance to play around with several of the images I’ve taken over the past few weeks. Again, I’ve been reasonably impressed. This is not a D3. With standard noise reduction in LR, I think the image quality is easily better than my D200 was, which given the size of the sensor is quite impressive. It is certainly better than the higher end point and shoots I’ve owned (Panasonic LX-2, Canon S90 – which to be fair are a couple of years old).

    Things that could be improved:

    * The interface. The camera tries to take care of a lot of things for you, and for the most part it does an ok job. If you’re trying to access things like you would on a DSLR, you may have some problems. It would be nice to see Nikon update the firmware with the ability to reassign some of the buttons to tasks that are more useful in manual mode, but as with any wish-list feature, it’s not something you should plan on happening if you’re buying the camera. Overall, the interface isn’t worse than the NEX-3, so I’m not displeased. I’d like things to be more accessible, but the camera is perfectly usable as it is.

    * The high-speed electronic shutter setting is very, very restrictive with regard to the settings you can change. Things you have no control of if you want to use the high-speed capture: Program mode only (no aperture, shutter or manual), ISO (Auto 100-3200 only), metering (matrix only), focus mode (AF-A only), and focus tracking (area mode only). I was rather looking forward to using the high-speed mode, but frankly…

    I initially preordered the V1, most of the lens, and the flash. I realized I was getting a Nikon 1 camera so that I don’t have to carry so much camera equipment. I cancelled the V1, and I purchased the J1 black instead. I am glad I did.

    I think for most people the J1 and 10 – 30 mm kit is the best choice. The 10mm pancake lens is nice if you want to do a lot of shooting in low light, but you can’t zoom. Most of you are used to zooming, and when you can’t get closer with your feet because of some barrier, you won’t be happy. Many are posting that the 30 – 100 mm lens is very good too. I would have gotten that one for my J1, but I have Nikon lens for my Nikon dSLR D5100. I plan on buying the adapter so I can use my current dSLR Nikon lenses on the J1 for fun.

    The J1 is a great little camera, but you do need to read parts of the manual. If you are someone who likes to capture the moment, this camera is very good in bright light. The colors (white balance) is very good, and in bright light the camera will focus more quickly than most cameras out there. This is great camera for someone (example, my wife) who likes to just shoot and not worry too much about all the photographic technical mumbo jumbo.

    The Nikon 1 cameras are very good in both pictures and video. I think there is one other mirrorless brand that does video as good as the Nikon 1 cameras. When I use my D5100 Nikon dSLR for video, I just have to accept the fact that there will be enough moments where the D5100 is trying to find focus, and so the video will have many small instances of a blurry picture. For most of us, the video of the Nikon 1 J1 will be very good for our family and social events. The Nikon 1 J1 has better auto focus video than any dSLRs out there.

    My previous ”small’ camera was the Canon S90. I really liked it. I have compared the J1 to the S90. You have to increase the sharpness in the J1 menu settings to match the sharpness of the S90. The J1 beats the S90 in color accuracy. I love the colors (white balance) from this new camera. It is as good or slightly better than my Nikon D5100, which is a great dSLR.

    I am enjoying this new toy. Hanging the camera on my neck or shoulder is much more comfortable than my DSLR. If you can afford it, I recommend getting the J1 10 – 30 mm kit. In bright light it is fantastic with great fast focus and great color. You do need to read the manual on the topics of vibration reduction (VR) and active dynamic lighting. For pictures you will want the VR to be on ‘normal’ most of the time. For video, you probably will need to put VR on ‘active.’ This is currently the best camera for both very good pictures AND very good video. As a father, I really regret not taking enough small video clips of my kids, especially of them speaking. Like any camera, you do need to use good holding technique, read the manual, and learn to use this new toy if you want to get the most out of it. If you just like to point and shoot, this will do that too.
