The Nikon J1 is an entry-level camera with a lot more sophisticated features than the typical beginner’s camera, including 10 megapixels of resolution, blazing-fast automatic focus, and innovative features like Motion Snapshots, Smart Photo Selector (which shoots 20 pictures in a fraction of a second and chooses the best one for you), slow-motion video at 400 and 1200 frames per second, and full resolution still photographs at up to 60 frames per second. As the owner of a Nikon J1, you demand the ability to take outstanding pictures with your new camera. DAVID BUSCH’S NIKON J1 GUIDE TO DIGITAL MOVIE MAKING AND STILL PHOTOGRAPHY shows you how, when, and why to use all the cool features, controls, and functions of the Nikon J1 to take great photographs and movies. Introductory chapters will help you get comfortable with the basics of your camera before you dive right into exploring creative ways to apply file formats, resolution, and exposure. Beautiful, full-color images illustrate where the essential buttons and dials are, so you’ll quickly learn how to use the Nikon J1, and use it like a pro!
