In addition to taking stills, the Wi-Fi enabled J4 will also record video at 1080/60p and shoot continuously at 20 fps with continuous autofocus (and 60 fps without). The 3.0” 1037k-dot LCD is touch sensitive, making accessing key camera settings and composing your shots a simple and painless experience.

Impressive image quality
Enjoy beautifully detailed images at up to ISO 12800 with the large 18.4-megapixel CMOS sensor. With no optical low-pass filter, this fast CX-format sensor makes the most of every megapixel to deliver richly detailed, crystal-clear images even when you shoot in dim light.
Portable 10-30mm kit lens with power-zoom
The Nikon 10-30mm f3.5-5.6 PD-Zoom 1 lens in white is for use with the Nikon1 mirrorless compact system cameras, such as the Nikon 1 V and J series. This extremely portable 3x zoom lens covers everything from close-up, wide-angle and subjects at a distance (35mm equivalent: 27-81mm). Its electric power-zoom enables quick, smooth zooming which is especially handy when photographing action or filming movies. The lens itself is made up of four aspherical lens elements and an ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element for correct unwanted aberrations and distortions, ensuring high-quality resolution and contrast.
EXPEED 4A engine
Nikon's dual-engine image processor keeps you shooting spectacular images and HD movies at speed. One processing engine enables superior noise reduction, extraordinary sharpness, and richly graded images. The other ensures fast, reliable performance and seamless continuous shooting.
Advanced hybrid AF
Lock onto action instantly with an AF system that includes 105 phase-detection AF points. Phase-detection AF is used in D-SLRs and keeps pace with your subject no matter how fast it moves. When the light is low or your subject is located at the edge of the frame, this intelligent hybrid system instantly switches to use contrast-detect AF for spot-on results every time.
Every second counts
The Nikon 1 J4 can snap full-resolution photos of the action faster than you can see it unfold. The camera takes 20 images in a rapid burst, delivering continuous shooting at up to 60 fps with focus fixed at the first frame, and up to 20 fps with continuous AF. Uncover the wonders hidden in a split second.
Nikon 1 makes it easy to film exciting Full HD (1080p) video clips. Hit the record button to start filming instantly: enjoy smooth footage of even fast-moving action or relive every heartbeat in Slow Motion, which plays back a three-second, 120 fps HD movie clip over 12 seconds. Electronic VR (vibration reduction) maintains a stable view even at full zoom.*2
Photos while filming
Why choose between movies and photos when you can capture both at once? With Nikon 1 you can capture high-resolution stills while filming simply by pressing the shutter-release button, or use Auto Image Capture, which analyses every frame and automatically snaps photos when conditions are best.
Creative movie modes
Fast Motion, Jump Cut, and 4-Second Movie features put the cinematographer in you centre stage. Energise your street scenes with Fast Motion, put an animated stop-motion feel on the passage of time with Jump Cut, or get expressive with to-the-point 4-Second Movie clips (you can stitch 8 together).
Responsive touch control
The electrostatic 7.5-cm (3.0-in.) 1037k-dot LCD touchscreen makes the Nikon 1 J4 a pleasure to operate. Use the Touch Shutter function to quickly take photos focused on the point you tap; use Touch Focus to adjust the focus when taking a photo or filming in advanced movie mode; access key camera settings as well as filters and effects with the simple tap of your finger.
The Wi-Fi function on your Nikon 1 J4 lets you connect, share, and create with ease. Send high-quality images straight from the camera to your smartphone or tablet for instant sharing*1 , store images on your smart device, or access creative photo apps.
Connect to a smart device and extend your shooting options. Take great self-portraits, or group shots with yourself in the frame, by using your connected smart device to release the camera shutter from a distance. Achieve the perfect composition by previewing shots on a large tablet screen.
Show more of a moment and create photos that move in just one click. The camera creates an easy-to-share ‘living image’ by capturing a moment in time as a short slow-motion movie that ends with a high-resolution photo.
Live Image Control
Quickly and intuitively enhance photos before you take them. Simply adjust the control bars that appear next to your image in order to freeze movement, tweak lighting, or blur backgrounds. Watch the changes take effect on the LCD monitor and see exactly what your photos are going to look like before you release the shutter.
Use Nikon 1 effects to add a creative twist to shots with a tap, swipe, or button press. Put more detail into high-contrast scenes using High Dynamic Range, or apply artistic filters like Miniature Effect, Toy Camera Effect, and Cross Process to still images before you shoot. Send your favourites directly to a smart device ready for instant sharing.
Apply artistic, studio-quality filters to photos before you shoot. Creative Palette adjusts brightness, saturation, and white balance as it cycles through various effects: all you need to do is slide your finger around the ring on the touchscreen, or rotate the multi selector, and the on-screen image changes. Take the shot the moment you see the look you want.
Shine some extra light on subjects with the pop-up flash. The compact flash unit automatically pops up in dim situations to provide enough light to illuminate subjects up to 6 m away from the camera.
Enjoy palm-sized convenience with easy touch operation, perfectly placed buttons, and simple menu design. The camera can be easily set up for dual control using buttons and touchscreen operation. The superbly bright, approx.1037k-dot resolution monitor frames shots clearly in any light, and displays large icons for easy navigation.
Small, solid, and a pleasure to hold, the eye-catching Nikon 1 J4 is irresistible. Precisely squared, seamless edges enhance the beauty of the aluminium body, which is available in modern white, brushed black, silver and orange.
Change perspectives with Nikon’s range of premium 1 NIKKOR lenses. Pack the 1 NIKKOR VR 30–110mm lens to capture distant subjects. Grab the compact and stylish 1 NIKKOR VR 10–100mm lens for superb versatility, or use the 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm prime lens for portraits with smooth bokeh.

Are you eligible for finance?
Applicants must be:
- Aged 18 years or older from the application date
- In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
- Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
- Not working through disability.
Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
