Product information

Whether you want to record your baby’s first steps or the explosive action of a photo finish, Nikon’s 1 J4 compact system camera, with an 18.4-megapixel CMOS sensor and rapid autofocus system, captures every look, wink, and heartbeat. The super responsive touch screen lets you do everything with a tap or a finger swipe, and built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect, share, and create on the go.

High ISO, powerful sensor
Trust your memories to a camera that delivers. With a large 18.4-MP sensor and ISO 160–12800, you get beautiful photos and movies, even when you shoot in low light.

Advanced autofocus
Over 100 phase detection points lock onto moving subjects with remarkable speed and precision. Capture sharp fast-action photos at up to 20 fps with continuous AF.

Touch screen shooting
Focus and shoot simply by tapping the super responsive touch screen. Tap to select the autofocus area, release the shutter, or access key camera settings.

Connect wirelessly
The Wi-Fi function on your Nikon 1 J4 lets you connect, share, and create with ease. Send high-quality images straight from the camera to your smartphone or tablet for instant sharing , store images on your smart device, or access creative photo apps.

Versatile kit lens
Keep the action in focus with the 1 NIKKOR VR 10–30mm f/3.5–5.6 PD-ZOOM lens. The electric power-drive zoom enables quick, smooth zooming so you can capture everything from distant subjects to tight close-ups with ease. Designed for instant shooting and superior portability, the lens extends the instant you turn the camera on and retracts the moment you turn the camera off.

Creative effects
Use Nikon 1 effects to add a creative twist to shots with a tap, swipe, or button press. Put more detail into high-contrast scenes using High Dynamic Range, or apply artistic filters like Miniature Effect, Toy Camera Effect, and Cross Process to still images before you shoot. Send your favourites directly to a smart device ready for instant sharing.

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.
