After having announced its flagship Nikon V3 from the 1 series, Nikon continued in the same direction and introduced a new model, Nikon J4, albeit to some extent weaker than the aforementioned Nikon V3.
The J4 compact is encased in an aluminium housing and features a 3" touchscreen LCD which consists of as many as 1.04 millions dots. The J4 demonstrates an ability to record video at 1080/60p, as well as 720/120p, which provides higher speed action. As it is the case with the majority of cameras nowadays, the J4 sports built-in Wi-Fi. In order for this camera's dimensions to be reduced to a minimum, Nikon adopted a new tactic and started using microSD cards instead of the traditional SD cards, which were typical of previous models.
The Nikon 1 J4 has an 18MP CX-format sensor which supports an improved Hybrid AF system. In comparison to previous models, the AF system is now characterized by 171 contrast detect and 105 phase detect points, which contributes to the coverage being almost 100%. This item, in combination with an Expeed 4 processor, results in the fact that the burst shooting is 20 fps with continuous autofocus, whereas that number totals 60 fps when there is no continuous autofocus. As far as the ISO range is concerned, it amounts to 160 - 12800. Above all, the J4 uses multi-shot noise reduction at the top two sensitivities.
The Nikon 1 J4 will be in stock outside the borders of the US. As for the price and kits, they are yet to be determined. The camera will be available in white, black and metallic orange.
