The Nikon D5, announced in January 2016 replaces the D4s. It has a new 20.8 megapixel full-size Nikon CMOS sensor (5 568 x 3 712 pixels): A Toshiba (Sony) T4K54 CMOS Image Sensor, a 4K (3840 x 2160 px) 30p / 25p / 24p video mode with a maximum of 6 minutes, a new AF Nikon MultiCam 20k module with 153 AF points including 55 cross points and a sensibility until -4 IL, an RGB light sensor of 180,000 pixels. The Nikon D5 provides a sensitivity range from 100 to 102,400 ISO expandable to 3 280 000 ISO (Hi5). It has a built-in Nikon "Snapbridge" software able to share images with smartphones and other devices, and with the cloud.
The version Nikon D5-a has two XQD cards slots able to store 200 RAW images in 14-bit and the second version, Nikon D5-b, replaces XQD cards by two CF cards limited to 82 RAW burst.
Giugiaro’s Italdesign (now owned by German car maker Audi) did not design the D5, but that camera’s design is clearly based on the D4 platform. The Nikon D5 is an exceptional camera, which keeps a construction for the most extreme conditions and which now, by its high sensitivity possibilities, can be used for images impossible before. That will interest polices and armies.
