Nikon 1 J5 First Nikon Camera with 4K Video Recording

Nikon Rumors reports on the upcoming Nikon 1 J5 and state that it is rumored to have 4K video capabilities.  No Nikon camera has 4K video to date.  While Nikon has staid true to its photography roots it’s never been clear why they have not attempted to provide high quality video features as they have no video camera market to protect.

The Nikon D7200 is expected to be announced soon as well, however there are no rumours of indications of anything other than 1080p video for this DSLR camera.
