Nikon J1

All told, it's not much bigger than Nikon's P7100 advanced compact, but the J1 is their first -- along with its sibling, the V1 -- in a line of interchangeable-lens compacts.The new CX-format sensor has a 2.7x crop factor, placing it between Micro Four Thirds and something you'd expect to find in a compact. The newly-designed AF system uses phase detection pixels mixed right in with the traditional pixels, giving it faster AF, even during video.

It lacks the electronic viewfinder and mechanical shutter offered by its more expensive counterpart, the V1.

Standout Spec: The new CX format sensor has phase-detection AF pixels built right-in, which means faster AF during photo and video capture
