Manufacturer's Description

\.

You no longer need a \"back-up\" shot \\When shooting fast-moving subjects, you may find it difficult to keep them within the frame or you may miss a fantastic photo opportunity due to the subject\'s unpredictable movements. With Nikon\'s Smart Photo Selector, you will never miss those picture perfect moments again.\\All you have to do is push the shutter-release button as you normally would.\.

\\It is that simple. The camera will then automatically take total of 20 shots before and after you press the shutter-release button at a high speed of 30fps.\\What\'s more, it will automatically select the most spectacular shot from the series of shots taken. Whether it is the expression of a loved one as they turn to look over their shoulder or a fun-filled scene at a party, the Nikon 1 will capture it all.

How Big is the Nikon 1 J1?

The Nikon 1 J1 is 106mm wide and 61mm tall. It is 29.8mm deep and weighs 0.234kg.
