Coming back to the Nikon 1 J4, the camera is backed by a 18.4-megapixel, super high-speed AF CMOS sensor, with no low-pass filter, and the latest Expeed 4A image-processing engine. Nikon claims it has the “world’s fastest, continuous shooting sensor”. Nikon also claims that the camera supports the high-speed shooting with a rate of 20fps in the burst mode and up to 60 fps when the focus is locked. In addition, it has 105 focus points with phase-detection AF and 171 focus points with contrast-detect AF.
Other features of the Nikon 1 J4 include a 3-inch TFT LCD 1037k-dot touchscreen, built-in Wi-Fi, full-HD recording at 1920×1080/60p, and a ISO range of 100-12800. Users can also use the auto image, in-movie capture for capturing still shots in a movie.
Interestingly, the Nikon 1 J4 is slimmer than its predecessor the Nikon 1 J3. Nikon has also chosen to forego the standard SD cards on the Nikon 1 J4, which uses a microSD card slot instead. This might raise eyebrows given that SD cards are a norm nowadays for point and shoot, mirrorless, bridge, and entry-level DSLR cameras.
Nikon has also released the WP-N3 waterproof carry case as a side accessory for the Nikon 1 J4, and the SB-N10 underwater speedlight. The two accessories offer a wide range of features that make it easily compatible with the Nikon 1 J4. Further information regarding the camera can be found on the Nikon site.
