Nikon S1 Review: Preview - Imaging Resource

Like the J3 alongside which it's being announced, the Nikon S1 also has significant restyling, bringing some feature changes since the J2. The two ports for the stereo microphone have been moved to the top deck, while the receiver for the infrared remote control, the playback zoom rocker, and the display / function buttons on the rear panel have been dropped altogether. The flash popup lever has also been removed, as the flash now has auto popup capability, although you can opt to raise it manually only if you prefer. There's also a new thumb grip, different strap lugs, and a function change for the Up arrow button on the four-way controller in record mode. Previously this was used for AE / AF lock; now it serves to replace the dedicated Function button.

Nikon S1 vs J1 - Our Analysis - Snapsort

On the rear panel of the Nikon S1 is a three-inch LCD panel, which serves as the sole method of framing and reviewing images and movies. (Just as in the the J-series models, this is the most significant differentiator from the flagship V2, which includes a built-in electronic viewfinder.) While the display itself is the same as found in the J3, it now provides a new GUI for mode selection, since there's no mode dial. Example images underlay the on-screen mode dial, providing a visual clue as to the purpose of each exposure mode.
