Nikon J1 | Compact Size

Source: PC Magazine - November 2011

It’s Compact, But Focuses and Fires Like a D-SLR.

Nikon J1 With Flash ~ PC Supporter Nikon’s J1 marks the company’s entry into the compact interchangeable lens camera market. Nikon’s J1 is not that much larger than a point and shoot, but manages to capture sharp images and focuses and fires faster than many D-SLRs, even though its image sensor and lenses are much smaller.
The J1’s included zoom lens covers a 3x zoom range, matching the field of view of the lens included with our Editor’s Choice Sony Alpha NEX-C3. The NEX-C3’s larger sensor packs more pixels and delivers best in-class low-light performance, but if you are put off by its larger lens, which is closer in size to that bundled with most D-SLRs, the J1 is worth a close look.

The J1 measures 2.4 by 4.2 by 1.2 inches (HWD), and weighs 8.3 ounces without a lens. The included 10-30mm kit lens is collapsible, which helps to conserve some room in your bag. Thanks to the compact optics, J1 is also noticeably smaller than the Sony NEX-C3, which features a kit lens that is the same size as that of a standard D-SLR.
The J1 is a compact speed demon. Although it is hindered by a just-ok 1.8 sec and start up speed, autofocus speed is excellent, the camera is able to lock onto a subject in about three-tenths of a second.

Shutter lag is virtually non-existent; we measured it at 0.04 seconds when the lens was pre-focused.
Nikon’s J1 is a very good choice if you are looking for a compact camera that delivers D-SLR-level performance. It offers a manual shooting mode that will satisfy serious photographers, and its burst-shooting capability and Smart Photo Selector mode make it possible for almost anyone to capture the perfect shot. But some shooters may feel limited by its fixed rear LCD and lack of a hot shoe or accessory port, which makes it impossible to use an EVF or a better flash. The same-priced Sony Alpha NEX-C3 offers a larger image sensor, and accessory port, and a tilting LCD.

How to Install Hp LaserJet 1320 Printer in Windows 7? Is Hp LaserJet 1320 Printer compatible with Windows 7? Yes it is!

Windows 10 Text Looks Blurry and Fuzzy

While I am still searching for this problem, I want to share it here so if someone can support and can give me a detailed answer. First-thing-first, I am on a low-end desktop PC, and I am not sure if the reason behind this problem is my low-end PC or Microsoft Windows 10. Yesterday I switched to Microsoft newly launched Windows 10 on my desktop PC which I am using since last few years regularly only for Office Work, particularly for Microsoft Office documents. I do know that it has only 256MB of graphics memory but I thought to give Windows 10 a chance to operate my PC. The upgrading process from Windows 7 (32bit Home Edition) to Windows 10, was itself so smooth and interesting that I feel its something special from Microsoft this time, and yes it is. Why I am talking only about graphics memory of my PC because Microsoft didn't mention any thing about required graphics card of amount of memory (as far as I read about it), and my RAM and Processor is enough sufficient to operate W…
