Before I'm gonna overload you with my Barcelona snapshots, outfits and must-go's I would like to share my review about a really cool camera. The Nikon 1 J3! I brought this small camera with me to my trip to Paris back in May. I didn't feel like bringing my DSLR camera with me and couldn't wait to try this one out.
What is it?
The Nikon 1 J3 is a compact camera that weighs only 244 gram (with battery). It's a camera that gives you the feeling of using a DSLR camera but in a compact body. The luxurious aluminum exterior not only looks nice, but feels good and performs even more impressive. The exceptionally fast autofocus system, the built-in auto pop-up flash and direct access to one unique Nikon functions via the mode button will make you pictures and high quality movies effortlessly.

When I had my hands on this camera for the first time it directly felt familiar. The fuctions of the camera were very clear and I could direclty start taking pictures. Because of the lens it feels like I'm using my own camera without the weight - which is a very important for me. Taking this camera with my to Paris was the perfect test to try this camera in full spin. Gosh! I worked perfect. Because of he fast system I could easily take pictures of everything around me - and of course of all the touristic spots. I already have a smaller camera (Canon J11) but I'm actually thinking about to sell that one and get this camerainstead because I works so good. As you can read, I'm very positive about this camera!
