The Nikon 1 J5 is the latest mirrorless from Nikon. This small compact digital camera features a 20 megapixels CMOS sensor with high-speed read-out which allows 60 FPS continuous drive at full-resolution and 4K Ultra-HD capture at 15 FPS. It is complemented by an electronic shutter with top-speed of 1/16000s and a built-in hybrid autofocus system wit 105 Phase-Detect points and 171 Contrast-Detect areas.

As the sensor is 1″-type and has a 2.7X crop-factor, relative to full-frame, the Nikon 1 system makes it possible to make smaller cameras and lenses than almost all mirrorless system while also exceeding the image-quality of similarly-sized fixed-lens cameras. Above one can see the 1 J5 with a 6.7-13mm and a 10-100mm lens. This combination is equivalent to an 18-270mm range on a full-frame camera (or 12-180mm on APS-C), yet it is much more compact.

The new J5 is completely revised from previous Nikon 1 cameras. It offers a new sensor and ergonomics with a more traditional interface. Still, among entry-level mirrorless, it is one of the few now to offer dual control-dials and a mode-dial. A detailed review of the Nikon 1 J5 is available at Neocamera. Read on to see how the 1 J5 performs and compares to its predecessors.

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, as the name suggests, is the second-generation of the excellent E-M5 which introduces the Olympus professional mirrorless lineup. It offers a built-in EVF with Eye-Start Sensor in a weather-proof and freeze-proof body with dual control-dials and plenty of controls to match is professional status.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Review

The E-M5 Mark II has been revised externally and internally compared to its predecessor. The most significant changes include a new 16 megapixels CMOS sensor mounted on a 5-Axis image-stabilization system which offers a 40 megapixels Super-Resolution capture mode. This is possible by capturing 8 exposures with the sensor offset to obtain full color information at each pixel and details in between. This is available within the ISO 100 to 1600 range and for shutter-speeds from 1/8000s – 8s.

This new sensor is paired with a faster processor and hybrid shutter which reaches speeds of 10 FPS and 1/16000s, among the fastest available at full-resolution. Mechanical shutter-speed still reaches a respectable 1/8000s. Also added is full 1080p HD video at 60 FPS.

A very similar body hides a number of interface tweaks and a much higher-resolution 0.5″ EVF, this time with 2.4 megapixels. There is also a 1 megapixels 3″ rotating LCD while remaining quite compact.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 takes the premium camera concept to a new level with its 2.2X-crop multi-aspect-ratio sensor and versatile Leica Vario-Summilux 24-75mm F/1.7-2.8 lens. It actually features a full 16 megapixels Four-Thirds CMOS sensor and uses it to capture ultra-wide images at 4:3, 3:2 and 16:9 aspect-ratios at around 12 megapixels. This sensor even outputs full-resolution images at 11 FPS and captures 4K Ultra-HD video at 30 FPS.

The LX100 offers a huge number of external controls, including dedicated dials for aperture, shutter-speed and EC, plus  generic control-ring and control-dials. It puts manual-controls efficiently and intuitively at your finger-tips. This is one of the most feature-ring digital cameras around and it manages to squeeze in a built-in 2.8 megapixels EVF, 3″ LCD, WiFi in a relatively compact body.
