Ces 2016 : Nikon Fills In The Blanks On Professional Grade D5 Dslr


CES 2016 : Nikon fills in the blanks on professional grade D5 DSLRNikon has formally announced its D5 professional DSLR, a 20.8MP full frame capable of shooting at up to 12fps with AF and 14fps without. The camera features an all-new autofocus module with 153 points, 99 of which are cross-type, sensitive to both horizontal and vertical detail.
The RGB metering sensor has also been doubled in resolution: up from a 91,000-pixel to a 180,000-pixel sensor. This should ensure more accurate metering and better precision in object tracking with continuous AF. It's also Nikon's first DSLR to be capable of 4K video capture and its first high-end camera to include a touchscreen.

The D5 is based around a new processor, which Nikon is referring to as EXPEED 5. It will offer a conventional ISO range stretching from 100 to 102,400, with low settings down to ISO 50 and extended high ISOs of up to 3,280,000. According to Nikon, the higher ISOs benefit from improved light transmission of the color filter array to get more light to the sensor. A 3.2" 2.36K dot XGA LCD with touchscreen functionality is included. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer direct access to AF point selection with your thumb in OVF shooting like the D500 or D5500.

The upgrade to the AF system is significant: combined with Nikon's industry leading object tracking ('3D tracking'), we'd expect phenomenal ability of this camera to follow your subject and keep it in focus no matter where it moves to within the frame. Whether you're shooting sports, weddings, or candid portraiture, the higher density of points should provide higher precision in tracking your subjects with pinpoint accuracy, an area in which Nikon already leads the industry. More cross-type points means better AF performance in tough lighting situations with challenging subjects, such as in low light or backlit scenarios. Freelance sports photographer Matthias Hangst is already claiming that 'the D5 has the best AF system. Tracking of erratic moves is brilliant.'
