Name: Nikon 1 J3, 14.2 Megapixels. HD Digital Camera system.

Are you an amateur photographer trying to determine what camera is best for you, but you search online and discover that all the camera reviews you stumble upon are simply tedious, too professional and overtly complicated? Some talk about words like flare, grad, light bucket (to name a few), while others talk about lighting and fringing. But, all you want is to find a simple review that details if the camera is good or bad, or perhaps worth the money if at all. You may also be looking for a good quality camera that tailor-fits your beginner photography style, and a camera that is simplistic, yet a little bit sophisticated and is capable of producing a great picture quality. This camera should also be a bit affordable, sufficient, require little work, and most off all, noncomplex…well if you checked “yes” to all these requirements, then I think the Nikon 1 J3 is for you. It’s a simple and reliable camera that requires little to no work at all – simply get inspired, press down on your shutter button and voila! you get a picture perfect frame, literally.
