There’s a brand-new 20.82 MP full-frame sensor that operates across a wide native range of ISO 100 to 102400, which can be ramped up to an outstanding 3.280.000-equivalent, making image capture even in the poorest lighting conditions a possibility. The newly designed sensor improves autofocus, metering and image processing, which ensures that this camera is capable of producing outstanding imagery.

The innovative D5 houses the EXPEED 5, which is Nikon’s most powerful processor ever. The new processor is able to harness the vast power of the new FX-format CMOS sensor, exceeding the D4S’s 16MP. A second processor has even been included just for autofocus. The new Multi-CAM 20K AF system boasts a huge 153 points, which is a massive three times more than its D4S predecessor. When all of this power is teamed with one of the brilliant NIKKOR lenses the image quality is incredible.

The extremely powerful D5 is a must-have for professionals. It ‘s a solid camera that will withstand years of use from even the most demanding shooter. The D5 has a touchscreen, which lets you swipe through images, zoom into details and much more. The cleverly designed DSLR also has a viewfinder blind, which photographers shooting long-exposures will find to be a valuable addition.
