The Nikon 1 J3 is a slick little camera with plenty of features and a couple of upgrades. It has a 14.1 MP CMOS sensor and hybrid AF.
The J3 improves on its predecessors with greater resolution, 14.2 megapixels vs. 10.1. As with the previous versions, the J3 can shoot in uncompressed (RAW) format as well as JPEGs. The camera has a 13.2mm x 8.8mm CMOS sensor (a 2.7 crop factor), a 921,000 dot, three-inch diagonal LCD monitor and 1080 HD video capability, along with the ability to record slow motion video. The camera uses Nikon's "hybrid" autofocus system, which uses a combination of phase detection and contrast detection to achieve quick and accurate focus under varied conditions. The J3 has several continuous shooting options. It can record up to five frames per second with the flash enabled and either 15, 30 or 60 frames per second for recording without the flash. The camera can be used in manual, shutter priority and aperture priority modes, though functions such as shutter speed and aperture can be set only by delving deep into the camera's menu. In addition to its manual modes the camera has some interesting creative shooting modes. It uses standard SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards.
