Nikon 1 J4 Review : Sensor Performance and Test Results
From DxoMark conclusion:
“We like the contemporary looks, small size, impressive AF and of course the system is maturing. Adopting the same sensor as the Nikon 1 V3 will certainly help the Nikon 1 J4 gain some traction with sales, given the price, but sensor performance isn’t as good as it could be and is really only on a par with some (albeit high-end) compacts.”
The Nikon 1 J4 features the same new 18.4-megapixel CMOS sensor as used in the new Nikon 1 V3, a wide light sensitivity range of ISO 160–12800, and new EXPEED 4A image processor with an improved Hybrid AF system. The AF system now has 171 contrast detect and 105 phase detect points, which allow for nearly 100% coverage across the frame.
