Shoot beyond what the eye can see with the D5—power and precision to beat the odds.
Equipped with Nikon’s incredible next-generation 153-point AF system, the D5 keeps you on track whether you’re shooting the race or the red carpet. Coverage is exceptionally wide, and a new buffer allows up to 200 NEF (RAW) images to be captured during one high-speed burst. New image and metering sensors deliver phenomenally accurate subject recognition and image detail. The highest expanded sensitivity in Nikon’s history frees you to shoot from bright sunlight to astronomical twilight. And for moviemakers who go to extremes, D-Movie now enables high-definition 4K/UHD movies to be recorded in-camera.
New metering and image sensors: the all-new 20.8-MP FX-format CMOS image sensor and 180K pixel RGB metering sensor deliver phenomenally accurate subject recognition and image detail. Tonal gradations are richer and more accurate, and the new EXPEED 5 image processing engine ensures image quality is unprecedentedly high across the standard ISO range.
Power and precision: shoot up to 12 fps with AE/AF tracking, or shoot up to 14 fps with mirror up. AF tracking and viewfinder visibility are vastly improved when shooting fast, unpredictable action.
High-performance buffer: capture up to 200 NEF (RAW) or large JPEG images in one high-speed burst - enough to cover an entire 100 m sprint final without taking your finger off the shutter release button.
Phenomenal sensitivity - from bright sunlight to astronomical twilight: push the envelope as far as required with an ISO range of 100 to 102400, extendable to ISO 3280000 equivalent at the Hi 5 setting. Experience exceptionally clean performance across the standard ISO range.
High-definition 4K/UHD movies: shoot 4K movies (3840x2160 pixels) at 30p/25p/24p in dot-by-dot native pixel crop, which ensures the highest image quality. Shoot Full HD (1080p) video at up to 50p/60p in multiple formats.
High-speed image capture and 4x faster data transfer: turbocharge workflow with new Double XQD card slots, a new USB 3.0 port for high-speed transfer of large amounts of data, up to four times faster wireless connection and twice as fast Ethernet connection.
In addition to the D5, Nikon is pleased to introduce the new WT-6 Wireless Transmitter (available separately) for efficient high-speed wireless network communications. When connected to the D5, high-speed transfer of image data to a computer* or an FTP server over a wireless network connection is made possible, with a maximum range of approximately 200m*2, making communication significantly faster with support for the new IEEE 802.11ac (2×2 VHT80) standard. Wireless control over the camera from a computer is also possible using Camera Control Pro 2 (available separately).
*1 The Wireless Transmitter Utility (available for download from Nikon's website) must be installed on the computer
*2 With large antenna at wireless LAN access point. Range varies with signal strength and presence or absence of obstacles
