Nikon announces new 1 J serie with the J2 camera and lenses.
Today announced the expansion of the popular Nikon 1 Advanced Camera with Interchangeable Lens System with the addition of the Nikon 1 J2 camera and the 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens to provide users with amazing image quality and stunning 1080p HD video in a portable, powerful package. The Nikon 1 System, including the new Nikon 1 J2 and the 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm lens, is engineered from the ground up to give users the freedom to capture and connect with others to share life experiences.
A new Creative mode has been added to the four original shooting modes available on the mode dial, allowing for easy specification of the desired shooting scenes from a total of eight options, including Night Landscape. What’s more, the J2 can be turned on or off using the retractable lens barrel button on applicable lenses, and monitor visibility has been increased with adoption of a high-resolution, 921k-dot LCD monitor.
Below are the new features:
- 10.1-megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 3 image processing engine
- Supports the optional Mount Adapter FT1, which enables use of F-mount NIKKOR lenses
- Built-in flash that supports i-TTL flash control (raised manually)
- HDMI output for viewing images on high-definition televisions
- Support for Eye-Fi memory cards enables simple wireless transfer of images
- Comes with ViewNX 2, Nikon’s basic image viewing and editing software for both still images and movies, as well as Short Movie Creator for creating your own short movies from still images and movies recorded with the camera. Collaboration with my Picturetown is simple
The J2 is available in six colors, allowing users to choose the color best suited to their individual style or preference. In addition to the five colors available with the J1, the J2 will also be available in a vivid new orange. Depending upon the color selected, the camera back will be either black or dark brown. In addition, the barrels of kit lenses are the same color as the camera bodies for an integrated look not expected of interchangeable-lens cameras.
