Nikon 1 J5 Announced as Nikon's Newest Mirrorless, Interchangeable Lens Digital Compact Camera -- Available Now for Pre-Order at Adorama

The Impressively Fast, Compact and Lightweight Nikon 1 J5 Sports an Upgraded Image Processor, Built-In Wi-Fi With NFC, and 4K Video Recording at 15fps Among Its Advanced Features

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2015) - Adorama (http://www.adorama.com), one of the world's largest photography, video, imaging and electronics retailers, now has available for pre-order the newly announced Nikon 1 J5 mirrorless digital compact camera. Available in black, silver or white with a choice of lenses, the new Nikon 1 J5 can be preordered on Adorama's website at http://www.adorama.com/results/NewNikon1J5.

The Nikon 1 J5 is a highly compact, interchangeable-lens mirrorless digital camera that's agile and fast, but doesn't compromise image quality. At about 4 inches long and just 2.5 inches high, this little powerhouse is faster than DSLR cameras with a new, advanced EXPEED 5A image processing engine, 20 frames per second continuous shooting capability and 20.3 effective megapixel CMOS sensor. Photographers can be sure they'll never miss a decisive moment when they can bring this camera with them everywhere and rely on 105 phase detection AF points that deliver tack-sharp results no matter how fast the action gets.

Video capabilities for this new model are improved from the Nikon 1 J4. The J5 now offers 4K recording at 15fps. Users will also find an interval timer, Active D-Lighting, and electronic vibration reduction while recording at both 30p and 60p. Creative modes can now be applied during video recording, while the capability to capture up to 20 still images simultaneously with HD video has remained.

Other features in the Nikon 1 J5 compact camera include built-in Wi-Fi with Near Field Communication (NFC) and Snapbridge, which allows connectivity quickly and easily with compatible smartphones for immediate image sharing. In addition to standard Manual, Aperture, Shutter and Program operating modes, a dedicated Sports mode is included in the main dial to be ready on the fly for great action shots. And the tilting monitor covers varying angles up to 180-degrees -- to capture the perfect selfie.

The Nikon 1 J5 is available to pre-order from Adorama with one of three lens configurations:

  • Nikon 1 J5 in white, black or silver with the Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM, retailing for USD 496.95
  • Nikon 1 J5 in silver or white with both the Nikkor 10-30mm lens and the 30-110 zoom lens, retailing for USD 746.95
  • Nikon 1 J5 in white or silver with the Nikkor VP 10-100mm f/4-5.6 lens, retailing for USD 1046.95
