The Nikon D5 is a tough and versatile DSLR camera targeted at advanced and professional photographers.
Representing the peak of Nikon camera technology, the Nikon D5 has a high-sensitivity 20.8-megapixel FX sensor and super fast 153-point autofocus, the D5 is suitable for a broad range of photographic pursuits. However, it excels particularly in the areas of sports photography, wildlife photography and action. The D5 can be used to produce detailed high-resolution stills even in challenging lighting conditions, thanks to its native ISO sensitivity range of ISO 100-102,400 (expandable to 3,280,000).
The D5 uses an advanced multi-CAM 20K autofocus system with TTL phase detection and 180K RGB Advanced Scene Recognition System to ensure that each frame has optimal exposure. This intelligent AF and metering combination can achieve sharp focus results in conditions as dim as -4EV in the centre, equivalent to moonlight. While its 153-point AF, 99 of which are cross-type, covers a wide-area of the camera’s frame, ideal for tracking subjects moving at speed. Planning to use teleconverters? All 153 AF points are compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses at f/5.6 or faster, while 15 points in the centre work at f/8. Couple that impressive AF capability with the camera’s EXPEED 5 processor, the D5 can buffer full-frame maximum resolution still images at 12fps (14fps with fixed AF) for up to 200 frames when shooting in RAW. The D5 also records media to two modular high speed card slots, which photographers can choose to be compatible with XQD cards or UHS-II SD cards.
The D5’s 3.2-inch 2359k-dot tilting touchscreen LCD offers a crisp display for composing images, with an anti-reflective coating for easier operation under all conditions. Touch functionality makes it easier to scroll through images, highlight favourites and add copyright information, all within the camera. It’s also a camera that photographers can use in a variety of environments and conditions due to the fact that it has a tough magnesium-alloy frame, as well as a fully weather-sealed design.
Photographers looking for top-tier DSLR build, image quality and handling, would do well to consider the robust Nikon D5. This camera offers fast capturing, unrivalled high ISO sensitivity performance, full manual control and superb creative features.
Nikon D5 - Video recording and connectivity
Nikon D5 owners can connect their cameras to Android and Apple iOS smart devices using Wi-Fi and NFC, for seamless photo sharing and wireless camera control. It also uses a fast USB 3.0 port and is compatible with the optional WT-7A wireless dongle for high-speed and FTP data transfer.
Compatible with a vast family of Nikkor lenses, the D5 offers professional standard video capabilities, such as recording UHD 4K video (3840x2160) at 30fps and Full HD video footage at up to 60fps. While users can also use the camera’s interval timer function to produce 4K time-lapse videos, as well as recording uncompressed footage to an external recorder via HDMI cable.
