Nikon Australia is pleased to announce the launch of the next-generation flagship model set to expand photographic achievements for professional photographers, the Nikon D5. This FX format DSLR camera, Nikon’s most powerful camera to date, is developed with advanced specifications that include significantly improved moving subject acquisition capabilities and compelling image quality at high sensitivities to enable excellent response to a wide variety of scenes and subjects.
With a host of new features developed by Nikon, the D5 has plenty to offer professional photographers needing to keep up with the constant change of pace under a variety of conditions.
The new 153-point autofocus (AF) system and a stable viewfinder image makes tracking moving subjects easy, even with high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 12 fps1. Visual aesthetics are heightened with the collaboration of a new Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor and a new EXPEED 5 image-processing engine, 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.
Workflow is notably amplified in time and function, as more new and improved features and functions are introduced with the 20.8-megapixel D5. The high-resolution touch screen LCD monitor, fast communications with both wired networks via built-in Ethernet connector and wireless networks2, alongside double memory card slots3 make for a highly efficient workflow.
“Remarkable, ground-breaking and once-in-a-lifetime shots can happen in the blink of an eye. Whether you’re shooting in unexpected conditions or with volatile subjects, the Nikon D5’s high sensitivities and subject acquisition capabilities allow photographers to take advantage of unpredictable situations,” said James Murray, Director of Sales & Marketing, Nikon Australia. “No matter what shooting environment photographers are faced with, the D5 is engineered to outperform all expectations with ease of operation, accuracy and exceptional reliability.”
