About the Nikon D5
Updated in 2016, Nikon’s Flagship full-frame DSLR offers huge improvements in performance when compared to previous models – giving water sports and action photographers the ultimate tool for capturing peak moments on land or in the water.
The Nikon D5 is built upon a 20.8 MP FX-Format sensor and powered by an EXPEED 5 processor – offering high speed and low light performance previously unavailable in the Nikon range of SLRs. With a maximum ISO of 102,400, the Nikon D5 is capable of shooting in near total darkness – pushing the limits of what was previously considered possible with a DSLR.
Action sports and surf photographers can achieve up to 12 frames per second (fps) when shooting in continuous mode – for up to 200 RAW files. Additionally, the EXPEED 5 is paired with a second processor dedicated only to the autofocus – increasing the speed and accuracy of tracking fast-moving subjects both in the water and on land. The Nikon D5 boasts 153 focus points with 99 cross-type sensors – able to track even small subjects moving at high speed. As a tool for videographers, the Nikon D5 can shoot Ultra High Definition (UHD) video in cinematic 4K at 3,840 x 2,160 at up to 30 frames per second (fps). Full HD 1080p video is possible at up to 60 fps – additional video capabilities include in-camera time lapse and a built-in stereo microphone.
