Nikon took official wraps off the new J3 and S1 mirrorless cameras at CES 2013. The J3 follows the limited-availability of the J2 and the S1 rounds out the bottom-end of the Nikon 1 series lineup.
The Nikon 1 J3 features a 14.2MP CX-format sensor and captures HD video. It retains the peppy AF speed that’s become customary to the Nikon 1 line and sports a 15fps burst capability. The Nikon 1 J3 is equipped with a 10-30mm kit lens and should be available in February for $599.95. Check availability here at B&H Photo.
The Nikon 1 S1 sports a 10.1MP CX-format sensor and captures HD video as well. It has a simpler interface for easier navigation, but still features the fast AF and 15fps frame rate found in the J3. The Nikon 1 S1 is kitted with a 11-27.5mm lens and should be available in February 2013 for $499.95. Check availability here at B&H Photo.
