Nikon came with its flagship D5 DSLR with incredibly high image processing power.
At its heart, the D5 DSLR is equipped with a brand new 20.8-megapixel sensor that’s coupled with Nikon’s new Expeed 5 image processor. Together, they’re capable of capturing images up to ISO 3,280,000. Yeah, three million.
It’s capable of 12 frames per second with AF thanks to a revamped autofocus system that has 153 total AF points, 99 of which are cross-type. This is a major talking point for Nikon, especially how it exceeds the capabilities of mirrorless.
The screen on the back of the camera is a 3.2-inch touchscreen with 2.36 million dots of resolution, which should be a decided upgrade, especially when it comes to video capture.
The D5 ably carries on the tradition set forth by its predecessors, giving professionals the tools they need to do their jobs effectively, with very little fluff. With the best JPEGs we’ve seen from any Nikon in its current lineup and the most capable autofocus system that anyone in the DPReview office has ever used, the D5’s value proposition for those that truly need it is better than its price and sensor specification might suggest. – by DPReview
