Never miss a moment

Important moments are made (and missed) in an instant. But imagine being able to slow down action right before your eyes, to instantly capture a series of photos and keep only the best ones, to relive the essence of a moment with a unique blend of stills, video and sound. With Nikon 1 Everyday Cameras, all of this and more is possible. Easily turn every moment that matters into a memory that lasts a lifetime.

Speed, accuracy and innovative features

Nikon 1 Everyday Cameras make it amazingly easy to catch the perfect shot. From blazing fast autofocus and continuous shooting speed to innovative features like Slow View, which slows down live action so you can freeze exactly the right shot (J5, J4, J3, S2, S1), you’ll never miss an important moment.

Instantly share your great photos

Take a great shot, then marvel as it instantly appears on a compatible smartphone or tablet for easy sharing*. Whether you’re using J5 or J4’s built-in Wi-Fi® capability or J3, S2 or S1 with the optional WU-1a or WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter (depending on model), sharing great photos has never been easier. You can even use a smartphone or tablet to fire the camera shutter!

Express your creativity

Add artistic flare to your shots! Easily preview and apply fun effects like Selective Color, Miniaturization, Soft Focus and many more right in the camera. Let your creativity run wild.

Dazzle with every shot

Nikon 1 cameras take simply beautiful photos and videos. Your shots will have rich colors, crisp details and softly blurred backgrounds. Capture your memories in the quality they deserve.

Shoot in any light

Nikon 1 cameras and lenses perform brilliantly in low-light situations. Shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, indoor gatherings—places that usually require extra illumination.

Put your creativity in motion

For moments that go beyond still photos, record dazzling Full HD 1080p video with crystal clear stereo sound. See something that would make a great still image while you’re recording? Press the shutter button and simultaneously capture photos without missing a beat. Then capture the essence of a moment with Nikon 1’s Motion Snapshot, a unique blend of video, photography and sound.
