The latest in a line of sub-$500 ILC announcements this spring, Nikon's cheapest model certainly doesn't skimp on the performance specs.
The Nikon 1 J1 is a fine camera, but there's nothing here that screams out "buy it" over similar competitors. It's also on the expensive side for a point-and-shoot upgrader, but has drawbacks for the more advanced user.
