Nikon has slightly modified its 1 System lineup by announcing the Nikon 1 J2 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, and the 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. The 1 J2 is a slightly updated version of the 1 J1 with a higher-resolution rear screen and metallic body. The 11-27.5mm lens is a super-compact zoom lens with 2.5x zoom range.
The 1 J2 ships with Nikon's Creative Mode option, which allows photographers to utilize several automatic shooting modes such as Panorama, Selective Color, Miniature, Soft, Night Landscape, Backlighting and Night Portraits.s Like the 1 J1, the J2 also features Full HD video recording, the ability to capture rapidly moving subjects at 10 frames-per-second and Motion Snapshot Mode.
Adorama is currently accepting pre-orders for the Nikon 1 J2 for $549.95 -- $100 less than the original 1 J1 asking price.
