The 14.2-megapixel Nikon 1 J3 camera is so easy to use, you'll forget how advanced it truly is.
Ignite your creativity with some of the most stunning images you've ever shot. The 14.2-megapixel Nikon 1 J3 brings your vision to life as exceptional photos, HD videos and Motion Snapshots that will have you capturing more moments than ever. Beautifully designed, remarkably simple and faster than any camera you've ever experienced, the Nikon 1 J3 will become the centerpiece of your creative expression and an endless source of inspiration.
The first thing you'll notice about your Nikon 1 J3 is its extraordinary speed. The LCD display has absolutely no lag. That means you can frame shots faster, pan faster, zoom faster do everything faster. The Hybrid AF System is the fastest in the world, so your images will be crystal clear, whether you're shooting a soaring bird or a fidgety child. The shutter fires at a blazing speed up to 15 shots per second continuously so you can freeze even the fastest moving subjects.
The best moments are made (and missed) in an instant. But imagine being able to slow down an important moment to see live action in slow motion. With the Nikon 1 J3 camera's amazing Slow View mode, that's exactly what happens. Slow down what you're seeing on the LCD, then select the shot you want. Combine that with Smart Photo Selector, which fires 20 shots with a single shutter press and selects the best five for you, and you've got every advantage for catching those once-in-a-lifetime moments.
Your creativity isn't limited to still photos with the Nikon 1 J3. A single press of a button and you'll be recording in dazzling Full HD 1080p video with stereo sound. See something that would make a great still image while you're recording? Simultaneously shoot full-resolution photos without missing a beat. Get the best of both worlds.
Your friends and family will love seeing your creations, and with the NIkon 1 J3, you'll never have to wait to share them. Add Nikon's WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter (sold separately), and instantly transfer your photos, videos or Motion Snapshots to your smartphone, tablet or compatible Wi-Fi(R) enabled device. Then share them as usual by email, text message or by uploading them to your favorite photo-sharing website. It couldn't be easier!
Capture the essence of a moment like never before with Motion Snapshot, a unique blend of motion, stills and sound that can be shared as .MOV movie files or arranged into an exciting slideshow. Add artistic flare with the camera's Creative Mode shoot in black & white, highlight a single color in an image, create expansive panoramas and more. You can even preview your shots before you take them with the Live Image Controls.
Like all Nikon cameras, the Nikon 1 J3 performs brilliantly in low light. High ISO sensitivity (up to 6400) lets you shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties places that usually require extra illumination. Your photos will be true to your memory of the moment; and in extremely dim situations, the pop-up flash automatically lights a great shot.
