Nikon j1 review

DEPTH OF FIELD: Although smaller than APS-C sized, the J1's sensor is large enough to allow depth of field to be restricted when shooting at f/2.8.

SHARP: Even in fairly low and very flat light, the J1's AF system usually gets the subject sharp quickly.

NATURAL: Despite the bright sky, using matrix metering has resulted in a natural-looking image with only slight underexposure of the foreground here.

ISO 3200: Using a sensitivity setting of ISO 3200 has made this image a little on the soft side, and although chroma noise is visible, it's not a major problem.

DETAIL: There's plenty of detail in this ISO 400 shot taken with the 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR kit lens mounted, but chromatic aberration is visible along some backlit edges.

NO FLASH: When you don't want to use flash, the maximum aperture of the 10mm f/2.8 lens comes in handy.
