Nikon is rumored to announce the 1-series J5 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera within the next few weeks with a new 1-inch-type 20.8-megapixel image sensor and 4K video recording.
The D7200 DSLR has been revealed by Nikon in recent times, but the 1 J5 mirrorless camera has failed to show up. Both shooters were supposed to be revealed alongside each other and were thought to offer 4K video recording. However, only the D7200 has showed up and it has done so without being able to shoot 4K movies. Still, the Nikon 1 J5 announcement date is approaching, as the rumor mill says that the device will be introduced sometime soon featuring a 20.8-megapixel sensor.
Nikon 1 J5 announcement date will occur within a few weeks
A new mirrorless camera is preparing to enter the fray and it is the long-rumored 1 J5, which will be manufactured by Nikon. The Japan-based company will reveal the new shooter sometime within the next few weeks, a trusted source says.
There is a strong chance that the device will show up by the end of March 2015, but the launch event will most likely take place in early April. Its predecessor, the 1 J4, has been introduced on April 10, 2014 with an 18.4-megapixel sensor and a hybrid autofocus system that consists of 171 AF points.
The Nikon 1 J5 specs list will include a new 20.8-megapixel 1-inch-type image sensor that will be capable of shooting 4K videos. Furthermore, the mirrorless camera will feature built-in NFC. For the time being, it remains to be seen whether the shooter will come with built-in WiFi, too, or not.
These details are expected to become official soon, so no dot jump to conclusions before the Nikon 1 J5 announcement date. In addition, you should take this with a pinch of salt and to stay tuned for more!
About the Nikon 1 J4
The current generation, called Nikon 1 J4, comes with an 18.4-megapixel sensor and a 171-point autofocus system. This mirrorless camera can capture up to 60fps in continuous shooting with single autofocus mode.
It also employs a fast shutter speed of up to 1/16000s as well as a high-speed video mode of up to 120fps. A touchscreen is available on the back and it can be used for framing photos and videos.
This mirrorless camera features built-in WiFi, so there is a strong chance that it will be present in the 1 J5 as well. Until the launch of its replacement, the 1 J4 is available at Amazon for $375 with a 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.
