Nikon 1 J5 Digital Camera Reference Manual

The Nikon 1 J5 achieves a level of speed and accuracy not even a DSLR can match. Its cutting-edge autofocus system uses 105 phase-detect AF points to instantly identify and focus on your subject. Hold down the shutter button and turn each second of action into 20 tack-sharp, full-resolution photos. Fix your focus, and the Nikon 1 J5 can capture at a mind boggling 60 frames per second continuously. A new Sports Mode optimizes the Nikon 1 J5 for fast-action, so you can switch from shooting pre-game portraits to on-field close-ups without missing a play.
