We bring you an in-depth look at the Nikon 1 J1 in this episode. We chat with Nikon's Steve Heiner about the compact point-and-shoot, which features a new mirrorless, small sensor system that packs in a flash module. The camera can grab 10 megapixel stills, records in full 1080p, and is the fastest autofocusing camera in Nikon's entire line. The Nikon 1 J1 even lets you capture images and 1080p video at the same time. This video was recorded at CES 2012.

Panasonic will be selling the Lumix camera will be sold as two kits. One kit will have the camera with a flat 20mm/f17 lens, and the other with a 14-45mm/f3.5-5.6 zoom. Each of these kits is priced at $900, so that’s kind of a bummer, especially considering that the Olympus E-P1 is $100 less and lists better specs.
