For a game that is about build­ing and main­tain­ing a closed-off pen­i­ten­tiary, Prison Ar­chi­tect serves up a sur­pris­ingly open sand­box in which to play. Ev­ery facet of the en­clo­sure and its in­mates has to be de­signed and over­seen, and mis­man­age­ment can re­sult in an in­flux of con­tra­band or in the worst case, a riot. Com­plex and com­pelling.

The D5 is built for speed. It can cap­ture 12 pho­tos ev­ery se­cond, and will even record 200 12-bit RAW files con­tin­u­ously. The cam­era uses an Ex­peed 5 im­age pro­ces­sor to achieve this rapid fir­ing dur­ing con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing. The D5 also fea­tures an op­tion for two XQD mem­ory cards, a new for­mat that can record at speeds up to 500 megabits per se­cond and store up to 2 ter­abytes on a card. It’s a big step up from Com­pactFlash.

Weight: The D5 is two hand­fuls. It weighs more than 1.4kg and you’ll need a gen­er­ous back­pack to ac­com­mo­date it. Wire­less trans­fers: The D5’s file sizes are sig­nif­i­cant. Even if you just record com­pressed files like JPGs (and you’ll want to be cap­tur­ing RAW), ex­pect files larger than 10MB. Bring your own flash: This cam­era as­sumes you’ll bring a pro­fes­sional cam­era flash to at­tach to its body. It doesn’t have its own light­ing source. That said, with pow­er­ful low­light per­for­mance, you may rarely need a flash.
