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.

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.

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.
