No, the Nikon 1 J1 is not a single-lens reflex camera (SLR). Single-Lens reflex cameras use a reflex mirror to reflect light entering the lens upward into the camera viewfinder. At the finder, another set of mirrors, or a prism, redirects the light through another lens group for viewing the image through the viewfinder. When you take a picture with a Digital SLR (DSLR), the mirror is raised to allow the light to reach the sensor. The Nikon 1 series of cameras are Advanced Cameras with Interchangeable Lenses, or mirrorless, cameras, in which the mirrors are removed and light passes directly onto the sensor. Nikon 1 cameras combine the creative freedom of a small, sleek camera and the superior image quality of an interchangeable NIKKOR lens system.
