Product information

Ultra portable and simple to operate, the Nikon 1 J2 is ready to take with you anywhere. The advanced CMOS sensor captures exceptionally sharp images in a variety of conditions, while stunning Full HD home videos are just a button-press away. As if that wasn’t enough, the 1 J2 also accepts a whole family of NIKKOR lenses for ultimate creativity.

Powerful sensor
The AF CMOS sensor focuses with the speed and accuracy that you might expect from a DSLR. Combined with the powerful EXPEED 3 image processor, you’ll have sharper photographs as well as the ability to capture those candid moments as they happen.

Stay in the shooting sweet spot all the time. Advanced hybrid autofocus combines Phase-Detection for shiny or moving subjects and Contrast Detect for stationary or poorly lit subjects.

Smart shooting
Always gets the best shot with smart photo selection. It shoots up to 20 high-resolution images before and after you release the shutter, then saves your best five for you to choose from. Images are recommended based on facial expression, composition, and focus.

Large screen
The wide viewing angle 3-inch LCD screen lets you see every detail of your snaps and movies. Navigation through saved images, menus and options is also a breeze.

More lenses
Nikon’s separate F-mount adapter attaches to the camera’s 1-mount to let you use a NIKKOR SLR lens. Trying out different lenses is a great way to experiment with how you shoot a scene, and if you use AF-S and AF-I NIKKOR lenses, you can still make full use of the Nikon 1 autofocus system.

Discreet flash
The built-in flash offers extra light when you need it. Designed at the same time as the camera, it enables perfectly exposed images.

Feeling creative?

One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.
