Product details

The Nikon 1 J3 Compact System Camera with 10-30 mm Zoom Lens looks cool in black and provides incredible image processing speeds, easy wireless sharing and, of course, high-quality photos and videos.

Life is yours to capture as it happens

Don't just stand there – take advantage of this interchangeable lens camera's considerable photographic muscle to record one-off moments as they unfold.

An ultra-high speed AF CMOS sensor provides extremely rapid and accurate focusing, its 14.2 megapixel resolution and sensitive 160 to 6400 ISO range facilitating breathtakingly detailed images, even in dim conditions.

Teamed with a lightning-fast, next-generation EXPEED 3A dual image engine, the Nikon 1 J3 processes data at incredible speeds, driving continuous shooting at up to 60 fps, and facilitating one of the world's fastest continuous shooting systems at 15 fps - with autofocus. It's ideal for almost any capture situation.

Super-speed focusing

The sophisticated hybrid autofocus system is equally fast, with an unbelievably short release time lag helping you shoot accurate images every time, even in low light. Depending on your subject matter, the system automatically switches between phase-detection AF and contrast-detect AF.

You'll also feel the benefits of amazingly high-speed continuous shooting with autofocus, capturing high-resolution images at up to 15 frames per second, or lock the focus onto one area and capture full-resolution images at up to 60 frames per second.

Breathe life into every scene

The Nikon 1-J3 Compact System Camera offers a selection of dynamic, intelligent modes and capture functions to enhance your every shot.

With Best Moment Capture, you're sure to always achieve the ideal photograph, while Smart Photo Selector takes up to 20 high-res images and recommends up to five of the best from this sequence. Use Slow View to capture up to 20 continuous shots and display them at the same time in slow motion on the LCD, helping you choose the best frame to retain.

You can bring your still images to life with a single click using Motion Snapshot, whereby the camera creates an easily-shareable “living image” by capturing a single moment as a brief, slow-motion movie that finishes on a freeze-frame. Image blur is dynamically corrected with the newly-added e-VR (electronic Vibration Reduction) feature for enhanced snapshots.

With Creative Mode you can apply filters and effects to your stills even before shooting, accessing PSAM shooting modes to take full control. Soft Filter helps enhance image moods, Easy Panorama is the way to photograph all-encompassing vistas, and Night Portrait mode shows a world with ever-perfect lighting.

Live video capture in a compact camera

Not only can you capture full-resolution photographs, but you can also capture 1920 x 1080p Full HD movies with the Nikon 1-J3 System Camera – or even record both formats at the same time.

Advanced Movie Mode benefits from smooth autofocus transitions and clear, punchy sound – use PSAM controls to determine the best shutter speed and aperture settings, even recording in extreme slow motion.

With Nikon 1 Short Movie Creator, you can automatically make short films from your stills and videos. Totally easy to use and including a range of preset visual styles, this software enables you to rapidly make mini-masterpieces up to 30 minutes long, with titles, credits and background music to complete the effect.

Clear image view and handy on-board flash

With Live Image Control, the Nikon 1 J3 Compact Camera gives you a rapid, simple way to augment your images prior to capture. Adjust settings intuitively to freeze motion, adjust lighting or add background blur, previewing the results in real time on the high-res LCD monitor before pressing the shutter.

This bright 921,000-dot 3” screen offers a broad viewing angle and tough protective glass for easy, confident use – see every detail in your videos and photos, whether indoors or outdoors. It displays simplified menus with enlarged icons to facilitate easy operation, teaming with the easily-reachable mode dial for rapid shooting mode access.

Easily achieve great lighting with the integrated Auto Pop-up flash, a compact unit that quickly springs into action to give you sufficient subject illumination for distances of up to 6 metre from the camera.

Eye-catching camera design

As good-looking as it is good at taking beautiful images, the Nikon 1 J3 Interchangeable Lens Camera has been finely crafted in an even smaller, lighter design that both looks amazing and feels reliable in your hands.

Finished in black, its aluminium exterior provides a luxurious feel and finish that are the perfect complement to its impressive performance capabilitie.

High-grade personal photography just got better with the Nikon 1 J3 Compact System Camera with 10-30 mm Zoom Lens and its wireless sharing facilities.
