Nikon D5 DSLR Camera (Body Only, Dual XQD Version)

The D5 is an FX-format DSLR camera that is capable of making images with astounding clarity. This camera features a redesigned sensor design, autofocus, metering and image processing that, when combined, result in a low light shooting capacity all the way to ISO 102,400 (expandable to an unheard of ISO 3,280,000). It also has precise AF detection and tracking across that entire ISO range, no matter the speed or direction changes of the subject. It also has fast 12 fps continuous shooting, 4K UHD video and, of course, unbelievable image quality. This version of the system uses the Dual XQD version of the camera. This camera will revolutionize the way you take pictures.

Widest Native ISO Range Ever

This camera has the widest possible base ISO range (100 to 102,400) and highest expanded range (up to Hi-5 ISO 3,280,000). It has advancements in noise reduction and color fidelity and a next-generation AF system that performs in near darkness (EV -4). Capture clear, sharp images you may not have attempted before - at night, in dark reception halls, arenas and more. This expanded ISO range means getting a without a flash. This is one of the few cameras that can take a handheld shot, at night, without blurring or streaking.

Masterful Image Quality

With the Nikon developed 20.8MP FX-format CMOS sensor, the D5 is the highest resolution Nikon DSLR. The superior image processor has been updated to EXPEED 5 to harness the power of this remarkable new sensor, and a second processor has been added just for autofocus. All of the exquisite detail and textures, vibrant colors and rich tonality delivered by NIKKOR lenses is captured in flawless precision, even in extreme low light. The level of clarity and detail this camera can produce is simply unparalleled.

Easily Capture Fast Motion

The D5 can shoot 12 fps with fulltime AF and AE, 14 fps with fixed focus and AE with mirror up. It has an entire second processor dedicated only to autofocus operation and computing. A new shutter and mirror sequencing mechanism nearly eliminates blackout time and mirror slap. EXPEED 5 and a high performance buffer handle up 200 NEF (RAW) and/or Large JPEG images during one high-speed burst, which can cover an entire 100m sprint without taking your finger off the shutter release button. The new 180K RGB Advanced Scene Recognition System pulls it all together and ensures every shot has optimal exposure. This feature is great for sports photography or any application that needs an extremely fast, rapid photographs.

Fast Accurate AF System Yet

The D5 uses a Multi-CAM 20K AF sensor module. It uses 153 focus points with 99cross-type sensors and a fully dedicated AF processor, and it works in near darkness (EV -4). Small subjects moving at high speed, even in low light, can be tracked with remarkable precision. The system is configurable in 153-, 72- and 25-point coverage when used with Continuous AF. All 153 points are compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses f/5.6 or faster, and 15 central points work with an effective aperture of f/8. Whether you're shooting a high-speed race or A-listers on the red carpet, the D5 can do it. It can focus on a bird in flight without blur.

4K UHD Video Even in Low Light

The D5 can record 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) video with dot-by-dot readout for maximum image quality. It can capture 3840 x 2160 at 30/25/24p with an angle of view approx. 1.5x lens focal length, or record Full HD 1080 video at 60/30/24p. Shoot stunning 4K UHD Time-lapse, right in camera.
