The Full-Frame Flagship from Nikon now boasts a 20.8 megapixel sensor, high speed continuous shooting of 12fps with full tracking autofocus (14 frames per second without AF).
It’s 153 point (99 cross-type) AF system probably deserves a whole post of it’s own. Based on the rave reviews of the D750 focus tracking, the D5 promises smooth subject tracking and exceptional fine tuning to match your subject.
When extended to Hi5 the ISO reaches 3,280,000 equivalent well exceeding human vision and bordering on night-vision quality. from Nikon:
“Designed for specialist use, such as surveillance or security applications, these astonishingly high ISO counts enable colour images to be captured without a flash in astronomical twilight, which is equivalent to an amazingly low 0.001 lux.”
The standard ISO range is 100 to 102,400 and, thanks to the new EXPEED 5 processor, offers incredibly clean output across the whole range.
Video users will enjoy 4K recording, flat picture styles seen on the D810, a 256% resolution boost to the rear TFT monitor compared to the D4s and clean HDMI output to external monitors and recorders.
