The stylish, go-anywhere Nikon 1 J4 is ready to capture every moment of your fast-paced life. From baby’s first steps to the explosive action of a photo finish, crystal-clear images are at your fingertips thanks to the 20 fps shooting frame rate with Continuous Autofocus. Nikon’s leading-edge EXPEED 4A processing engine combines with an 18.4 Megapixel CMOS sensor to deliver breathtaking results while a super-responsive touchscreen LCD monitor makes it easy to do everything with a touch or swipe. Stunning Full HD 1080/60p video recording adds to a clever package with built-in Instant Photo Sharing so you can create, connect and share on the go.
Capture life-like detail
The newly developed CX-format CMOS sensor with its 18.4 Megapixels and high-speed readout gives you exceptional clarity at high resolution. Even in dim lighting the sensor shines, giving you a wide range of ISO sensitivities from 160 to 6,400, expandable up to 12,800.
Spectacular performance at speed
A dual-engine EXPEED 4A image processor in the Nikon 1 J4 gives you professional results fast. While one engine provides superior noise reduction and incredibly sharp, richly graded images, the other delivers seamless continuous shooting and dependable performance at an astounding 60 fps.
Freeze the fun
An advanced 171-point Hybrid AF system including 105 phase-detection AF points means you can keep your subjects in sharp focus, no matter how fast they move. Contrast-detect AF means you’ll never miss a moment, even when the light’s poor or the action is at the edge of frame.
Discover hidden expressions in action sequences
Capture full-resolution photos faster than you can see them happen. Just frame your action shot, press the shutter-release button halfway and your Nikon 1 J4 locks focus. Keep pressing and you can fire off twenty images in a rapid burst, delivering continuous shooting at up to 60 fps with focus fixed at the first frame and up to 20 fps with Continuous AF.
Easy touch screen LCD monitor
Shooting is easy thanks to the palm-sized convenience of the 7.5 cm (3.0-inch) 1037k-dot LCD touch screen monitor. Almost anything you can do with buttons or dials can now be performed simply by tapping or sliding your finger. See an image you like? Just tap the screen once to focus and shoot. Tap to quickly access key camera settings as well as filters and effects. Everything’s clear and easy-to-understand, with simple icons to help you choose the mode you want.
Relive memorable moments in brilliant Full HD
Whether it’s short highlights of a casual get-together or a complete video log of your long-awaited trip, record it all in stunning Full HD at 1920 x 1080/60p. Just hit the record button to start filming for up to ten minutes continuously. Go cinematic with a choice of unique creative modes like Advanced movie mode or take high-resolution stills while you film.
Express your artistic side
The Nikon 1 J4 puts intuitive controls at your fingertips for beautiful results. Creative Palette’s filters make it easy to adjust brightness, colour saturation and white balances. Apply them before you shoot, simply by sliding your forefinger around the ring on the touch screen, or rotate the multi-selector and take the shot when you see the look you want. With Active Selection you can take up to 20 high resolution shots in a second and save as many as you like.
Choose the shot that says it all
Slow View on your Nikon 1 J4 makes it easy to choose the best shot in a fast action sequence. Just press the shutter-release button halfway to record up to 20 frames at 30 fps. The LCD monitor plays back the whole sequence in a continuous slow-motion loop. When you see the image you like, just press the button and it’s automatically saved.
