The Nikkon D5 has become self Qualified as the Nikon DSLR flagship model in their lineup, the D5 is positioned as a truly quick, highly precise device for professional photographers. Centered around a full-frame,
CMOS image sensor and EXPEED 5 processor, this go-getter touts an extraordinary 12 fps continuous shooting rate with full-time autofocus and AE, an
expandable sensitivity range that goes as high as ISO 3280000, and capturing
4K UHD video at 30 fps. Matching the imaging adaptability, the Nikon D5 is also characterized by its improved Multi-CAM 20K 153-point AF system, which integrated 99 cross-type sensors for cultivated precision when tracking moving subjects or shooting in difficult lighting conditions. This model contains a pair of CF memory card slots, to provide versatility in handling files during photographing, and an array of
selectable raw file sizes can also be employed depending on output needs. Engineered to keep up with the fastest subjects and deal with the most difficult working environments, the Nikon D5 is a state-of-the-art DSLR well-suited to the most acute multimedia workflows.
Echoing the robust set of photography capabilities, the D5 is of course correspondingly refined in its handling and physical architecture attributes. A rear mounted 3.2" 2.36m-dot
LCD touchscreen monitor provides clean, clear playback and shooting in live view, along with an intuitive way of navigating the system menus. The camera chassis is fashioned from magnesium alloy and is sealed for both dust- and weather to empower working in the harshest of environments. In addition, lending an air of familiarity to the layout, a slew of
customizable Function buttons are applied across the body, and an built-in vertical grip handles working in both horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.
The FX-format 20.8MP CMOS sensor is pared with the EXPEED 5 image processor to deliver an esteemed blend of high sensitivity, nuanced image quality, and quick overall execution. At native values, a sensitivity range from ISO 100 thru 102400 allows shooting in a broad range of lighting environments, which may be additionally expanded to ISO 50
thru 3280000 (Lo 1 to Hi 5) to take care of the most challenging of situations. The blend of resolution and sensor size also adds to the clean image quality and smooth color transitions with diminished noise throughout the sensitivity range.
