Nikon today officially announced the new D5 flagship DSLR. It features a new autofocus system, 4K video recording, and an extended ISO range of up to 3,280,000. That’s right… you can shoot at ISO 3.28 million.
Camera is a full-frame 20.8-megapixel CMOS sensor that can shoot stills at 12 frames per second (14fps with the mirror locked) and video at 4K resolution and 30fps. Backing the sensor is a new Expeed 5 image processor.
There’s a revamped autofocusing system that uses 153 autofocus points that cover a large portion of the frame. Nikon says this is its first DSLR with a dedicated AF processor. Of those 153 points, 99 are cross-type.On the back of the camera is a 3.2-inch, 2.36-million-dot LCD touchscreen as well as a 100%-coverage viewfinder with 0.72x magnification. The camera’s body also packs a built-in 1000 Base-T 400MBps Ethernet connection for transferring your photos 1.5x faster than with the D4S.
There will actually be 2 different versions of the D5 for the same price: a dual XQD card slot version and a dual CF card slot one — take your pick depending on which memory card format you’d like to use. The Nikon D5 will be available in March 2016 for $6,500 for the body only.
