Marvel at the image quality

Beautiful photos and videos in any light

Capture in 20.8-megapixels of dazzling resolution. The Nikon 1 J5's all new back-side illuminated (BSI) CX-format CMOS image sensor gathers more light than a traditional CMOS sensor, enabling faster shutter speeds and enhanced low-light capabilities. Nikon's new EXPEED 5A image processing assures rich colors, smooth tones and razor-sharp details in every photo and Full HD video. And when the light is very low, shoot all the way up to ISO 12,800 with no fear of noise—High ISO Noise Reduction stacks four separate images for clean, sharp low-light results.
