Spectacular shooting

The CMOS sensor in the J5 can generate stunning 20.8 megapixel images when combined with the extensive range of NIKKOR lenses to let you achieve a wide range of artistic compositions.

Nikon's updated dual-engine EXPEED 5A processor also allows the camera to respond quickly for effortless images and seamless continuous shooting at an incredible 60 frames per second at full resolution when shooting with fixed focus.

Get connected

Tap into a new world of photographic possibility with the J5 that features WiFi connectivity that lets you shoot and share like never before. Pair the J5 with your smart devices and share your shoot instantly with friends on the other side of the world when you upload images directly to social media.

You can also pair the J5 with your tablet or computer to check shots on a big screen seconds after the shutter closes for a more responsive and reactive way to shoot.

Versatile kit lens

The Nikon 1 J5 comes with a NIKKOR 10-30 mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens that lets you capture awesome photos out of the box, from distant moving objects and sweeping landscapes to flattering portraits and casual snaps.

It remains compact and convenient despite its impressive speed and versatility – simply rotate the lens to turn the camera on, or retract it to switch off.

Dynamic autofocus

You'll be able to hone in on subjects with outstanding speed and accuracy with the Nikon J5. Continuous AF allows for superior fast action shots, while the advanced hybrid AF system includes 171 AF points to keep in step with rapidly-moving subjects.

In low light or with edge-positioned subjects, this smart focusing system instantly adjusts to use contrast-detecting AF for greater accuracy and more memorable shots. There's also Active Selection, a new feature of Best Moment Capture mode that takes up to 10 hi-res images in a second so that you can pick your favourite.

Magic movie modes

There's also the option to capture Full HD videos, recording events in their entirety. Simply press the shutter release button during filming to grab still frames, or use Auto Image Capture to take photos automatically whenever conditions are ideal.

Movie mode includes creative effects like Fast Motion, Jump Cut, and 4-Second Movie to make your videos more exciting. Fast Motion adds energy, Jump Cut creates an animated stop-motion feel, and 4-Second Movie clips expands your expression in to-the-point fashion (stitch up to eight clips together).

Remember those memory cards

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.
