Create at the speed of life

Harness the remarkable speed and precision of Nikon 1

The first thing you'll notice about your Nikon 1 J3 is its extraordinary speed. The LCD display has absolutely no lag. That means you can frame shots faster, pan faster, zoom faster—do everything faster. The Hybrid AF System is the fastest in the world*, so your images will be crystal clear, whether you're shooting a soaring bird or a fidgety child. The shutter fires at a blazing speed—up to 15 shots per second continuously—so you can freeze even the fastest moving subjects.

*Among digital cameras with interchangeable lenses available as of

Conquer fleeting moments

So many ways to catch the moments that matter

The best moments are made (and missed) in an instant. But imagine being able to slow down an important moment—to see live action in slow motion. With the Nikon 1 J3 camera's amazing Slow View mode, that's exactly what happens. Slow down what you're seeing on the LCD, then select the shot you want. Combine that with Smart Photo Selector, which fires 20 shots with a single shutter press and selects the best five for you, and you've got every advantage for catching those once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Go beyond the still photo

Add stunning HD videos to your arsenal of expression

Your creativity isn't limited to still photos with the Nikon 1 J3. A single press of a button and you'll be recording in dazzling Full HD 1080p video with stereo sound. See something that would make a great still image while you're recording? Simultaneously shoot full-resolution photos without missing a beat. Get the best of both worlds.

Share your creations anytime, anywhere

Wireless sharing to your smartphone or tablet

Your friends and family will love seeing your creations, and with the NIkon 1 J3, you'll never have to wait to share them. Add Nikon's WU-1b Wireless Adapter (sold separately), and instantly transfer your photos, videos or Motion Snapshots to your smartphone, tablet, or compatible Wi-Fi® enabled device. Then share them as usual—by email, text message or by uploading them to your favorite photo-sharing website. It couldn't be easier!

Put your creativity on display

Capture the essence of a moment like never before with Motion Snapshot, a unique blend of motion, stills and sound that can be shared as .MOV movie files or arranged into an exciting slideshow. Add artistic flare with the camera's Creative Mode—shoot in black & white, highlight a single colour in an image, create expansive panoramas and more. You can even preview your shots before you take them with the Live Image Controls.

Excel in low light

Like all Nikon cameras, the Nikon 1 J3 performs brilliantly in low light. High ISO sensitivity (up to 6400) lets you shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties—places that usually require extra illumination. Your photos will be true to your memory of the moment; and in extremely dim situations, the pop-up flash automatically lights a great shot.

WI-FI COMPATIBILITY

This camera's Wi-Fi® capability using the WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter can only be used with a compatible iPhone®, iPad®, and/or iPod touch® or smart devices running on the Android™ operating system. The Wireless Mobile Utility application must be installed on the device before it can be used with this camera.
