Nikon 1 - J2

J2 10 30 SL frt34l.high

The J2 was the first update of Nikon's entry model for the Nikon 1 line. As such, it has limted features and an interface more targeted to a compact user moving up. The J2 has two primary differences over the J1: a higher quality LCD, and the addition of "creative shooting modes," including panorama.
