“We understand the importance of a millisecond when it comes to capturing a remarkable competitive sporting moment or the intensity of a ground-breaking news piece. The camera companion has to outperform the expectations by delivering a potent fusion of extensive image capturing power alongside a detailed and immediate acquisition performance, regardless of the environment,” said Hiroaki Ono, General Manager, International Marketing Division Imaging Group, Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd. “Following this train of thought, Nikon presents the new FX-format flagship DSLR, the Nikon D5. Engineered with all of the mentioned, and housed in a camera body of exceptional reliability and operability, the D5 is a professional’s formidable photography partner. Nikon D5, I am vision outperformed.”
Photographers on the beat, needing to keep up with the constant change of pace of a subject under a variety of conditions, will enjoy the new 153-point autofocus (AF) system and a stable viewfinder image that makes tracking moving subjects easy, even with high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 12 fps*1. Visual aesthetics are heightened with the collaboration of a new Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor and a new EXPEED 5 image-processing engine, both developed by Nikon, producing the highest standard ISO sensitivity in Nikon history with up to an ISO of 102400. This helps to expand photographic possibilities by liberating photographers from lighting restrictions, not only with the capture of still photos, but also with recordings of 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) movies, the latter being a new feature introduced with the D5.
Workflow is notably amplified in time and function, as more new, improved features and functions are introduced with the 20.8-megapixel D5. A high-resolution touch screen LCD monitor, fast communications with both wired networks via built-in Ethernet connector and wireless networks*2, alongside double memory card slots*3 make for a highly efficient workflow.
Contributing to greater autofocus (AF), auto exposure (AE) and auto white balance (AWB), is the incorporation of a new 180K-pixel RGB sensor for the Advanced Scene Recognition System. The winning combination of these features and functions comes fitted with a design that consumes less power and adoption of a highly precise and durable shutter, while increasing camera reliability in terms of control precision, strength and durability. The D5 also supports the new Nikon Creative Lighting System functions, Radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting (AWL) and Unified Flash Control.*4
