On the surface, the Nikon 1 J3 is a simple reflection of the art of photography.

Continuous shooting mode delivers high speed and sharp images. When your subject is in motion, continuous shooting mode works with the camera's phase-detection AF system to track movement and keep the subject in focus. The moment you press the shutter-release button, the camera captures razor-sharp images at 15 frames per second (fps). Continuous shooting mode can shoot even faster when your subject is stationary (imagine a golfer's swing). In this case, you can set the camera to shoot at up to 60 fps!
Sized for perfection
The moment you pick up the Nikon 1 J3 you may not believe that you're holding an advanced camera with interchangeable lenses. With the proportion of W101 x H60.5 x D28.8, the small camera body is also extremely light weighing just 244 g (with battery and memory card but without body cap). Such a compact, lightweight design encourages you to carry the Nikon 1 J3 with you anywhere.
Slow view for fast scenes
When faced with a fast-motion scene, it is hard to know exactly when to shoot. Slow view is the solution. When you half-press the shutter-release button, the Nikon 1 J3 shoots continuously, capturing approximately 20 frames in a few seconds. On the LCD monitor you'll see the action occurring in slow motion. Once you see an image you like, just fully depress the shutter-release button—the precise moment is yours!
