Nikon’s achieved a great spot after adding two new models Compact J4 and S2 into their arsenals of Cameras.
Compact J4 is designed with more flexibility and offers 18.4mp (megapixel) and s2 is powered by 14.2mp. It has a capability to change the lens of the camera that makes it upgradeable from the predecessors including a high light sensitivity range (up to 12,800), this thing will help users to shoot in a place with low light too. Both of them are lightweight and more compact than predecessors.
Available to purchase this month, the Nikon 1 J4 will be sold for $650 with a 3X 10 – 30mm zoom lens kit. Will be available next month, the Nikon 1 S2, packed with a (11 – 27.5mm) lens kit, will be sold for as low as $450. Other varieties of lens are also available to purchase.
Few other things that make these models more effective are rapid shoot and analyzing of multiple photos, like shooting 4 photos at a time and then combine them into a single one to lower the image noise or in other words graininess. There are several of options that are creative for both still and video capture, including Toy Camera, which makes real life scene looks like a toy miniatures. The preview of the creative effects are shown before the picture is snapped.
Another feature that makes it unique and must have is slow-motion and HD video recording, with electronic vibration reduction and ability to snap and capture videos and photos at the same time, these are only the few of the enhanced movie options. Fast Motion, ability to cut and jump and other effects are also added. Both are capable to shoot 1080p Full-HD video at a frame rate of 60 per second. the Compact J4 can also capture 720p HD video at a rate of 120 fps, to playback at slow motion of 2x.
