The Nikon 1 J3 is a good compact camera Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Lori Grunin, Senior Editor of CNET and I'm here at CES where Nikon announced a few cameras. The first one is the Nikon 1J3 - it's the update to the J series which they had just released or announced to J2 in the fall. So, this sort of came out of the blue. But it is more of an update from the J2. It's got 14 megapixels CX size sensor. This is the new 10-100mm lens. The cut lens will still be the 10-30mm and will run for $600 when it ships in February. Some of the new things in the camera are: it has a pop up flash that you can [unk] which is a really nice feature for getting a nice flash effect without the harshness of the light. It also has a much needed physical mode dial on top which is really nice because a lot of people who buy this camera are enthusiastic. We like our mode dials physical. It's got a very nice well-designed body. It feels comfortable. It feels sturdy. My one big problem with a lot of these cameras is that they don't have grips. So, they get really slippery and I look forward to testing it when it comes out. I'm Lori Grunin and this is the Nikon 1J3.
It shoots good photos, but mediocre performance and a serious design flaw may keep this 8-megapixel camera out of the hands of enthusiasts.
A good, though not outstanding, compact camera, the Nikon Coolpix S600 is hindered by some shortcomings in its performance and operation.
When the 5400 is good, it's very, very good. It's just missing a few features that enthusiasts crave.
The Coolpix P7000 is a fine camera that lots of enthusiasts will appreciate for its smart shooting design, interesting feature set, and worthy photo quality.
A solid enthusiast "compact" that will please a lot of shooters, the Nikon Coolpix P7700 doesn't quite deliver speed or stellar imagery.
An unsurprisingly great camera that's worth every penny of its higher price for its target market of professional nonsports photographers, the Nikon D800 should definitely please those who've been waiting patiently to replace their older Nikon equipment.
Nikon produces another solid point-and-shoot compact megazoom with the Coolpix S9100 by offering fast performance, good photos, and an excellent feature-to-price ratio.
Photo enthusiasts who favor wide-angle photography indoors or out will love the expansive view of this 8-megapixel EVF camera.
A solid if unexceptional entry-level dSLR, the Nikon D3200 should still please most folks looking for an upgrade from their point-and-shoots.
The Nikon Coolpix S6200 is not exceptional in any way, but casual snapshooters in need of a pocket-friendly 10x zoom camera should check it out.
