Nikon has just launched a new entry to its range of mirrorless cameras, which comes in the form of the 1 J5. Equipped with a 1-inch 20.8MP sensor, this shooter will be made available by the Japanese company later this month with a starting price of $499.95.
Like we said, the Nikon 1 J5 kicks in a 20.8MP 1-inch sensor bearing the CX format and the BSI technology. This setup pairs itself up with the EXPEED 5A image processor to provide the new camera with a whopping 171-point contrast detect AF system and 105 phase detect AF points.
4K video recording is something that today’s shooters are not hesitating to offer, and the 1 J5 too has been equipped with this attribute. However, it can shoot 4K clips only at the 15fps framerate, making the feature useless for serious videographers. On the upside, 1080p full HD videos can stretch up to 60fps, whereas 120fps slow motion clips can be captured at the 720p HD resolution.
Nikon has gifted this snapper a superb 20fps burst speed at full resolution with continuous autofocus. Additionally, photographs can even be clicked at an incredible 60fps with fixed focus as well. Wi-Fi and NFC support are of course present on this camera, apart from a 3-inch 1037k dot touchscreen display which tilts 180 degrees.
The Nikon 1 J5 with a 1 NIKKOR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-Zoom lens will set you back by $499.95, whereas the cost will go up to $749.95 if you decide to go for a kit containing the 1 NIKKOR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-Zoom lens and the 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 lens. A set containing the 1 NIKKOR 10-100mm f/4-5.6 lens will make you poorer by $1049.95.
