The mid-level Nikon 1 J3 is the smallest Nikon mirrorless and packs the same 14 megapixels sensor as the recently reviewed V2 into a very compact camera body. This unique sensor features built-in Phase-Detect autofocus and can shoot continuously at up to 60 FPS at full-resolution. It can also capture 1080p video and achieve a class-leading shutter-speed of 1/16000s.
This review covers the suitability of the J3 considering the entire Nikon 1 system. Included are image samples at all ISO sensitivities, from ISO 160 to 6400 and 100% crops plus a 1080p HD video.
