Nikon 1 J4 Digital Camera Reference Manual

Don’t look away from the action. Fumble-free, touchscreen controls, including touch-to-focus and touch-shutter, let you pay attention to the moment, not your camera. The Nikon 1 J4 touchscreen LCD makes changing settings as simple, intuitive, and easy as a smart phone, while delivering higher quality images. Fine tune the focal point or release the shutter with a touch of your finger.
