Part I: Getting Started with Your Nikon J1

Part I
Getting Started with Your Nikon J1

This first part of the book, consisting of just three short chapters, is designed to familiarize you with the basics of your Nikon J1 as quickly as possible, even though I have no doubt that you’ve already been out shooting a few hundred (or thousand) photographs with your pride and joy.

After all, inserting a memory card, mounting a lens, stuffing a charged battery into the base, and removing the lens cap to fire off a shot or two isn’t rocket science. Even the rawest neophyte can rotate the mode dial (located at middle right of the camera back panel) to the Still Image mode green camera icon. By default, the J1 will use Automatic Scene Selection, and will choose an appropriate exposure mode. Point the J1 at something interesting and press the shutter release. Presto! A pretty good picture will pop up on the color LCD on the back of the camera. It’s easy!
