Here are some of the images we've shot with the new Nikon J1 during our testing.
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.
FLASH: The bright sky is nicely balanced by the flash output for this low angle shot.
ISO 800: There's little noise visible in this ISO 800 image.
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.
FAST: The Nikon J1's AF system can latch onto and track fast moving subjects.
NO FLASH: When you don't want to use flash, the maximum aperture of the 10mm f/2.8 lens comes in handy.
