Two feedback items:

First on the color scheme of the graduates attire, and stereotype they are perpetuating with red for females and blue for males. C'mon, it is 2018!!

Lol. Of course. Society still wants everything in its most typical packaging. Better than blue and pink!

Second is on camera performance, the ISO 6400 seems totally usable!

Most definitely! Even I was surprised by how well it turned out at that ISO. Note that adding sharpness in editing seemed to help.

First editions of N1 with 10MP sensors weren't as good at anything higher than 800.

Even the V1? Seems like every time I see photos on this forum from the V1, I'm always impressed with how clean they look. To your point, maybe that's because its users are smart enough to keep the ISOs low. But I've seen some higher ISO photos from the V1, and the grain seems to have a nice fineness - isn't that its reputation?

For fun, here's a V1 photo shot at 1600 ISO by Craig Litten:

And a V1 photo shot at 3200 ISO by Steve Huff:

I know those are two really good photographers, but perhaps the V1 is capable of more than you realize?

Regardless, yes, the J5's sensor is a nice improvement from earlier N1 models.
