Camera House : Better Pictures 7
6 Products Hot new gear nIKon 1 j1 Years in the making, this new compact system camera from Nikon boasts all the benefits of a DSLR, inside a compact form factor. Removing the mirror has freed up designers to deliver a sleek slim camera packed with features. Launched with a range of interchangeable lenses alongside its more expensive big brother the V1, the J1 delivers full HD recording, motion snapshot (lets you create a moving image), a new high speed CX format sensor and 10 frames per second continuous shooting (up to 60 fps if you use electronic Hi shutter). Want more? It’s small and light enough to fit into your coat pocket. It features a range of picture controls and shutter modes for the novice to choose from, or experienced shooters can opt for manual options for more creative control. Smart auto features like subject tracking and face tracking also provide easy options for the newbie shooter to take good looking photos straight out of the box. A pop-up flash ensures night portraits will always come up looking sharp. An ideal solution for your family’s happy snapper.

As for the tech specs? Well, they’re none too shabby. The IXUS 230 HS offers 12.1 megapixel resolution, full HD movie recording, an 8x optical zoom, 28 mm wide angle lens (great for group shots and landscapes) and a range of creative filters (fisheye miniature, toy camera and more) for quick in-camera effects.
