Nikon D5


version franšaise




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.
The Nikon D5 keeps a design similar to the D4, it is not sure that it is the work of Ital Design, like the previous ones. 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.
