Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
Ignite your creativity with some of the most stunning images you've ever shot. The 14.2-megapixel Nikon 1 J3 brings your vision to life as exceptional photos, HD videos and Motion Snapshots that will have you capturing more moments than ever. Beautifully designed, remarkably simple and faster than any camera you've ever experienced, the Nikon 1 J3 will become the centerpiece of your creative expression and an endless source of inspiration.
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.
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.
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.
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 Mobile Adapter (sold separately), and instantly transfer your photos, videos or Motion Snapshots to your smartphone, tablet or compatible Wi-Fi(R) 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 color 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.
