Small, sleek and fully loaded - Nikon's newest J range camera is a pared-down version of the V3
The Nikon 1 J4 may be a good mirrorless camera, but Nikon really needs to turn up the volume when you consider the strong competition.
Big improvement, still needs work
Unless you can find the Nikon 1 S2 at a ridiculously low price, we suggest you spend a little more money on stronger mirrorless cameras like Sony’s A5000.
Sacrificed at the altar of the J4
Rugged, waterproof and well-equipped, but at a price
Plenty tough, just mind the night time noise
The Nikon Coolpix AW120 isn’t for everyone. It’s for holidaymakers looking for an easy-to-use tough camera that will accompany them into the pool or ocean.
