7 Reasons For
12% higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon 1 J5 is a 20.8MPMP digital camera. That's 2.4MP higher than the Nikon 1 J4 (20.8MPMP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

48% more total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon 1 J5 is a 23.01MPMP digital camera. That's 11.01MP more than the Nikon 1 J4 (23.01MPMP).
Marginally lighter Edit
The Nikon 1 J5 has a weight of 231gg, whereas the Nikon 1 J4 is a 232gg digital camera (1g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
