Nikon India has announced the launch of Nikon D-SLR D5 Camera, the next-generation flagship model that expands photographic possibilities for professional photographers. This latest Nikon FX-format (full-frame) D-SLR D5 camera is developed with advanced specifications that include significantly improved moving subject acquisition capabilities, and compelling image quality at high sensitivities to enable excellent response to a wide variety of scenes and subjects, as stated by Nikon India in its press statement.
The D5 comes with new 153-point autofocus (AF) system and a stable viewfinder image that makes tracking moving subjects easy, even with high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 12 fps. Visual aesthetics are heightened with the collaboration of a new Nikon FX-format (full-frame) CMOS sensor and a new EXPEED 5 image-processing engine, both developed by Nikon, producing the highest standard ISO sensitivity in Nikon history with up to an ISO of 102400. This helps to expand photographic possibilities by liberating photographers from lighting restrictions, not only with the capture of still photos, but also with recordings of 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) movies, the latter being a new feature introduced with the D5, adds the statement.
In the latest flagship reiteration, more improved features and functions are introduced with the 20.8-megapixel D5. A high-resolution touch screen LCD monitor, fast communications with both wired networks via built-in Ethernet connector and wireless networks, alongside double memory card slots make for a highly efficient workflow.
Contributing to greater autofocus (AF), auto exposure (AE) and auto white balance (AWB), is the incorporation of a new 180K-pixel RGB sensor for the Advanced Scene Recognition System. The winning combination of these features and functions comes fitted with a design that consumes less power and adoption of a highly precise and durable shutter, while increasing camera reliability in terms of control precision, strength and durability. The D5 also supports the new Nikon Creative Lighting System functions, Radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting (AWL) and Unified Flash Control.
“Nikon D5 is a professional’s formidable photography partner, sporting a phenomenal new autofocus system, highest standards of expanded ISO sensitivity, turbocharged workflow, and exceptional durability, for superlative flexibility to shoot both stills and 4K movies. The new-fangled D5 outperforms the expectations by delivering a potent fusion of extensive image capturing power alongside a detailed and immediate acquisition performance, regardless of the environment. Nikon D5 is ‘I AM VISION OUTPERFORMED’.” said, Mr. Sajjan Kumar, Vice President – Imaging Division, Nikon India Pvt. Ltd.
