A number of lenses are available for the Nikon 1 system, such as the 30-110mm lens which can be bought as part of a twin lens kit. This image was shot at 110mm, and shows the Nikon 1 J2's image stabilisation has done a decent job of keeping the image blur free.

Black and white images can be captured when shooting in P/A/S/M modes by changing the Picture Styles in the menu. Here we can also see the Nikon 1 J2 has done well coping with the bright sky behind the statue to provide a good exposure.

Despite the fact the J2 has a small sensor, you can still achieve pleasing shallow depth of field effects. This image was shot at 10mm (27mm equivalent) at f/3.5 using the 10-30mm kit lens.

The Nikon J2 makes a good every day camera, while its small size is likely to appeal to holiday makers.

A good amount of detail is captured by the J2, but if you examine the image at 100% parts of the image can look a little soft.
