Nikon Officially Announces New Flagship D5 DSLR


Finally, a new flagship shooter from Nikon

It’s been 3 long years since Nikon has announced their previous flagship camera, the D4, and today the camera company has finally announced its successor: the D5. The D5 is aimed at professional photographers who value both speed and accuracy in their shooting, and the D5 delivers the goods in both aspects. The D5 sports 153-point AF system, paired with a full-frame, 20.8-megapixel sensor, 12FPS continuous shooting mode and a new Expeed 5 image processor.

No flagship snapper is complete with the ability to shoot 4K UHD video, and the D5 is no exception. It’s also capable of going as high as 3,280,000 ISO on extended sensitivity, though its native ISO goes only to 102,400. Nikon says that the D5 is the most powerful camera in history, and we believe them – unfortunately you’ll also need to have very deep pockets to afford this – the D5 is expected to retail for $6,500 (Php 304K) for just the body.
