Nikon D5 Product and Sample Images:
4k video is an interesting feature, something that Nikon isn’t exactly known for. But it does support 720p and 1080p hd as well as 2160p 4k video in 24, 25 and 30 fps. 60fps is available in 1080p and 720p.
The D5 features a 20.8-megapixel CMOS sensor paired with the new Expeed 5 image processor. It can shoot 12 frames per second (14 frames per second with the mirror locked).
The autofocus system has seen an overhaul here as well. There is a dedicated AF processor – Nikon says its the first of its kind. There are 153 auto focus points covering a large area of the frame. 99 of these AF points are cross-type.
Also new is a built-in 1000 Base-T 400MBps Ethernet connection for faster photo and video transfer.
The Nikon D5 is available in 2 versions at the same price. There si a XQD card slot version as well as a dual CF card slot version depending on your preference for memory cards.
