Best FX camera
Discover the big winners in our annual round-up of the best cameras, lenses and photographic accessories!
The D5 is an imposing hulk of a camera. While its 21.33MP resolution might seem modest, its burst speed of up to 14 frames per second is phenomenal. Moreover, it can keep firing at this rate for up to 200 shots, even in RAW mode.
It’s not just a speed demon, though: the D5 also makes breakthroughs in other areas. Its next-generation AF system boasts an astonishing 153 AF points, no less than 99 of which are cross-type. Plus, major steps forward in sensor design enable superlative picture quality throughout the huge standard sensitivity range of ISO100-102,400, while also enabling ultra-high expanded settings, up to ISO3,280,000.
The D5 doesn’t just produce spectacular stills, either: this is Nikon’s first D-SLR that can capture ultra-high definition 4K movies. For us, it’s simply the best digital SLR of all time. BUY if… Money is no object and you simply want the best camera the world has to offer right now.
