Nikon's newly-announced J2 camera, which comes less than a year after the firm introduced the Nikon 1 compact interchangeable lens camera system with the V1 and J1 models, offers a new crystal-bright LCD screen with a 921,000-dot resolution. It improves on J1's 460,000-dot screen.
The J2 also has a new Creative Mode, which is a dedicated function button that gives easy access "to a range of photography modes, filters and shooting settings that can be applied directly to your preview," says Nikon, which has added one new colour - orange - to the range of available models.
Apart from these two new features, the J2's 10.1-megapixel sensor, Expeed 3 image processor and advanced hybrid autofocus system are identical to those available on the J1.
The J2 will be available from 06 September retailing from £500 with a 10-30mm kit lens.
Nikon has also introduced the 1 Nikkor 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, which will have a retail price of £180.
