Nikon 1 J3: 41 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. weight

6. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

7. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

8. video recording

9. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

10. width

11. higher resolution (screen)

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

14. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

15. Can create panoramas in-camera

It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

24. has a CMOS sensor

CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

25. shoots raw

A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.
