Nikon has updated its entry-level compact system camera line with the Nikon 1 J5, a step up from last year's model with the addition of 4K video recording.

The body has also been redesigned a touch, with a 3-inch tiltable touchscreen monitor flipping up for selfie action.

The CMOS sensor has been upgraded too, to 20.8-megapixels, and the camera uses Nikon's latest generation image processor, the EXPEES 5A.

Other specifications include an ISO range of 160 to 12,800, with manual and auto ISO control. And, like the J4, the camera can shoot pictures at 20 frames per second with continuous autofocus, or 60fps fixed.

The advanced hybrid AF offers a 171-point AF system with 105 phase action points able to lock onto action speedily.

It is Wi-Fi and NFC enabled, so can easily share pictures to a smartphone or tablet. And you can see any image effects you wish to use in real-time. This also works for movies.

Video is shot in either 4K at 15fps or 1080p at 60fps. While a HD (1280 x 720) mode can also shoot extreme slow motion at 120fps.
