Not sure which Nikon body will be the one for you? Here’s a rundown of the current range*
Nikon’s DSLR and CSC line-up, plus lenses to screw onto the front of ’em
A CSC that DSLR users will love,
the J5 has the highest resolution of any Nikon 1 camera to date (20.8Mp) and a decent sensitivity range. The top dial also gives access to semi-automatic and manual exposure modes, plus you can shoot in Raw, which is real bonus.
SMALL IN SIZE BUT BIG ON QUALITY,
the svelte Nikon 1 S2 is responsive and speedy. With a 14.2Mp image sensor, and the omission of built-in Wi-Fi or a touchscreen, it’s more basic than the J5, but still a highly capable camera that you can slip into your bag as a lightweight backup.
Very much the ac tion ad venturer,
the Nikon 1 AW1 is shockproof, waterproof to a depth of 15 metres, and even freeze-proof down to -10°C. To keep pace with a truly active lifestyle, it also has a built-in compass, altimeter, depth gauge and GPS.
The fla gship Nikon 1 ca mera
adds a vari-angle touchscreen to the comfortable ergonomics of the preceding V2, along with key upgrades to the image sensor, processor and autofocus system. It also includes built-in Wi-Fi. An electronic viewfinder is optional.
An instant favourite with beginners
when launched back in 2012, the D3200 eases you into creative photography with a built-in Guide mode that serves up interactive tutorials. This is backed up by impressive image quality, thanks to its 24.2Mp image sensor and EXPEED 3 processor.
THE D3300 BO ASTS A Beginner-friendl y Guide Mode
too, but boosts performance with a current-generation EXPEED 4 processor, faster continuous shooting and greater low-light potential than the D3200. There’s also a user-friendly Effects shooting mode and handy ‘easy panorama’ mode.
