Features S1 vs J1
6 months ago

I have a Nikon J1 and have seen an S1 for sale. I'm considering it for my wife who basically points and shoots but am trying to find all the differences between it and the J1. I've researched but can't find much, beyond that the S1 omits the mode dial and up-down control and has an unstabilized kit lens.

Questions:

* Without the up down control, how do you change f-stop and shutter speed etc in PSAM modes?

* Do you still have the option to specify an AF point via the OK button and 4-way?

* Can you shoot video clips (720p 60fps) in PSAM modes immediately by using the "red dot" button?

* I assume that the ISO options like A400 etc are the same?

* Does it use the same EN-EL20 battery?

* What does the Fn button do in PSAM shooting mode?

* I assume the image quality is the same?

* It does offer Raw+Jpeg?
