    Default Please Help. I need some camera recommendations

    My old Kodak M575 wonít do anything right now so I was looking for a new camera that would fit what I wanted. I was looking around and found the 1 I thought, the Nikon 1 J1. It did most of what I wanted except be in my budget (My budget is $400 at max maybe $500 if itís totally worth it) I donít want a DSLR since itís so big I donít want to have to carry around. The things I was looking for is a camera that can take very high quality in a mirrorless or smaller body and have manual controls and good creative features. I would also like it to take very good video in full HD 1080p and do some slow motion. I want to touch base with interchangeable lenses and get into the world of dslr's but not have the big body and price. If you know of a camera that can do these things or maybe not exactly that would help me a lot cause the camera market to me seems really confusing and I need the help. Thanks

    There's a recent thread on the 1J1 that should give you a good idea of its pluses and minuses.
    What to buy? (Nikon 1 J1 + Suggestions?)

    The bottom line is the 1J1 is a very nice, small camera with detachable lenses. When it was first released it drew criticism for being overpriced but at its current market price it's a good deal.
    Here are some sample images:

    TomCat - I would get the $349 Nikon 1 V1 for the viewfinder - and it's $50 less expensive than the J1.

    Good luck with your decision and best of the holidays!
