    Versatile kit lens

    Your 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.

    NIKKOR produce a variety of lenses (sold separately) with the Nikon 1 mount that are compatible with your J5 so you can build a comprehensive collection of optics to stay prepared for any situation.

    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.

    Time to get creative

    Creative Palette lets you switch between different effects, viewing changes onscreen so that you can get the image you want and add more creative flair to your images.

    Magic movie mode

    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).

    So easy to operate

    With a bright high-resolution 76.2 mm (3”) LCD monitor you'll be able to compose shots clearly and easily, viewing your creations instantly without a hitch.

    Buttons are well-arranged for easy access, while the intuitive menu allows for straightforward adjustments and use of effects. Use the handy feature button to instantly access the feature menu and change settings with the minimum of hassle.

    Because the screen tilts it couldn't be easier to get the shots you want, even when your J5 is at arms length. Simply tilt the screen to whatever angle you need and shoot from up high or down low to give your images a new perspective.

    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.

    What's more, we range a variety of camera cases that will protect and help keep your gear organised on photography journeys.

    Highly portable and in a stylish black frame, you'll be proud to show off the new Nikon 1 J5 Compact System Camera with NIKKOR 10-30 mm f/3.5-5.6 VR Zoom Lens.
