Nikon has unveiled the latest edition to its J-series of Nikon 1 Cameras. The new J4 is the follow up on last years popular J3 compact mirrorless camera, and upgrades include a new 18.4-megapixel sensor, and the Expeed 4A image processor. The sensor is also missing its low-pass filter making for exceptionally sharp image quality.

The new Nikon 1 J4 features 105-focus points, and very accurate phase detection autofocus. 171 points are utilized for contrast-detection autofocus as well and the camera is able to handle up to 20-frames per second with the auto-focus set to tracking mode. 60 frames per second is capable when the focus is locked, and the camera actually records 20 frames before and 20 frames after the shutter has been pressed to ensure that the photographer gets the perfect shot. 1080p video at 60 frames per second recording is built-in, and the camera has an ISO range from 100-12,800. Additionally the new J4 ditches the full-size SD card for the more popular microSD format.
