There will also be a budget friendly S2 version
Nikon's super-speedy J4 mirrorless camera is finally coming to the US and we are so thankful that we didn’t have to wait for too long. The camera is also bringing along the low cost counterpart which is the S2. The J4 is going to come to the markets at the end of this month and will be priced at $650. It features the standard 10-30mm zoom lens or about $50 more than the outgoing J3.
There will also be a $850 kit available for the camera which will pack inside more flexible 10-100mm lens and in case you want both the 10-30mm glass and a long-range 30-110mm telephoto lens then you will have to shell out a bit more money for the $1,050 bundle. Fortunately, the hardware itself hasn’t shown many changes since the time when it was first announced by Nikon. Thanks to the new 18.4-megapixel sensor and Expeed 4A image processor, you can pump out photos at a steady 20 frames per second with advanced autofocusing. The camera also brings some added luxuries including the touchscreen and WiFi photo sharing.
The S2 on the other hand is the budget friendly version and since the price had to be kept low for this one, some of the features had to be foregone in this case. But there are things which still make it amazing including the J4's all-important 20 fps shooting rate. On the other hand, you will not be able to enjoy the touchscreen and built-in WiFi. The S2 will be available in June at a price of $450 with an 11-27.5mm lens, or $700 in a bundle that adds the 30-110mm telephoto.
