4K video recording
In a first for any Nikon digital camera, the Nikon 1 J5 records video footage in ultra-sharp 4K, plus it captures stunning 20.8 megapixel stills and smooth time-lapse movies as well. Thanks to the camera’s phenomenally quick autofocus system, users have the freedom to shoot with confidence in low light, or easily freeze the action at 20 fps with Continuous AF in the new Sports mode. The tilting touchscreen and manual controls offer every chance to make the most of creative ideas, while 1 Nikkor lenses ensure any kind of scene can be captured in vivid detail. When it comes to sharing, the Wi-Fi- and NFC-enabled Nikon 1 J5 makes it quicker than ever to upload high-quality photos via a smartphone or tablet.
Nikon 1 J5 system camera
With the Nikon 1 J5 camera in your hand, you can leave the limitations of shooting with a smartphone or compact camera far behind. This is the first Nikon 1 system camera to feature a large, back-illuminated CX-format sensor, specifically designed to capture the greatest possible amount of light. Every pixel is perfectly reproduced to deliver 20.8 megapixel images bursting with colour and fine detail. Together with the camera’s wide ISO range of 160-12800 and the advanced noise-reduction capabilities of its next-generation EXPEED 5A image processor, you get crystal-clear images no matter what kind of scene you’re shooting. Nikon’s EXPEED 5A processor is at the heart of the camera’s lightning-fast autofocus, intelligent noise reduction and crystal-clear imaging.
Nikon 1 J5 features
Thanks to blazing continuous shooting speeds and the phenomenal Nikon 1 hybrid autofocus system, nothing moves too quickly for the Nikon 1 J5. This is a system camera that can bring home action shots that even a D-SLR might miss. Shoot at a world-beating 20 fps with Continuous AF or enjoy up to 60 fps with focus fixed at the first frame. For easy access to the camera’s burst modes, simply turn the Mode Dial to Sports. You can select the speed you want to shoot at, and instantly view fast-action sequences as one group of shots. The system uses 171 autofocus points to rapidly lock onto your subject, instantly switching between 105 phase-detection AF points and fast contrast-detect AF. Phase-detection AF spots movement at breakneck speed. Contrast-detect AF extends to the edge of the frame so you can focus sharply on peripheral subjects, even in low light.
Easily accessible manual controls
Coralie Smith, Senior Product Manager, Nikon United Kingdom says: "The Nikon 1 J5 is an exciting new addition to the Nikon 1 range, combining superior ergonomics with a stylish new design. For people that want to explore their creativity and take the next step with their photography, but still keep the portability, exceptional speed and touchscreen function, the Nikon 1 J5 is the ideal choice. The easily accessible manual controls and smart new look of the camera give it a real edge, and the retro look of the body offers a classic photographic feel. Nikon have always been leaders when it comes to speed and functionality, and the Nikon 1 J5 is now the first camera to feature 4K, allowing video shooters to discover even more possibilities when making movies. The Wi-Fi function and NFC technology also make sharing via a smart device easier than ever, for easy connectivity when on the go."
