According to the new report coming from Nikon Rumors, the next version of Nikon’s 1 J mirrorless line, the J5, will be capable of recording 4K video. If this is true, it would make the often overlooked mirrorless camera Nikon’s first body capable of recording 4K video. The rumors are also claiming that the Nikon 1 J5 camera will feature NFC connectivity which presumably will allow it to pair with smartphones, tablets, or other devices to send and share photos/videos wirelessly.
