Nikon will announce the 1 J5 mirrorless camera very soon, says a trusted source, while the 1 J4 has just been discontinued by the Japanese manufacturer.
The mirrorless camera industry will be graced by the presence of a new Nikon-branded model soon. In recent times, a reliable source, who has been right in the past, has suggested that the 1 J5 will be introduced on April 2.
A different source, who has provided accurate information on numerous occasions, is reporting that the Japan-based company will reveal the 1 J4 replacement “soon” and that it will release the camera as a body-only version, single-lens kit, double-lens kit, and double zoom lens kit.
More Nikon 1 J5 details leaked ahead of April 2 launch event
The latest Nikon 1 J5 details are not handing out an exact announcement date. However, we know from a distinct source that the device will be officialized within the next 24 hours.
The new information says that Nikon will sell the 1 J5 as a body-only model, but will put three other kit options at photographers’ disposal.
The first is a power zoom lens kit, which will probably include the 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD Zoom lens. Another kit will include two zoom lenses, which consists of the aforementioned model and the 1 Nikkor 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 lens. The contents of the “double lens kit” are unknown.
New accessories for the 1 J5 to be revealed by Nikon
Alongside the 1 J5 camera, Nikon will also introduce the MH-31 battery charger, EP-5F power connector, CB-N2220SA case, and CT-406 trunk case.
The mirrorless camera is rumored to feature a 20.8-megapixel 1 inch-type CMOS sensor with 4K video recording support, WiFi, NFC and a touchscreen.
As stated above, all these products are expected to become official on April 2. However, take all these rumors with a grain of salt.
Nikon 1 J4 price reduced, as the camera was discontinued
Meanwhile, Amazon has just marked all Nikon 1 J4 versions as discontinued. The price of the camera has been decreased, too, these facts being considered major hints that a replacement is imminent.
Please note that this is not an April Fools’ Day joke, so stay tuned to Camyx at least for the next few days!
