Expert Review Summary

DPReview Gold Award
June 2016
The D5 ably carries on the tradition set forth by its predecessors, giving professionals the tools they need to do their jobs effectively, with very little fluff. With the best JPEGs we've seen from any Nikon in its current lineup and the most capable autofocus system that anyone in the DPReview office has ever used, the D5's value proposition for those that truly need it is better than its price and sensor specification might suggest.

Expert Reviews

Carey Rose Carey Rose Camera Expert
With a little bit of work to get it set up the way I like and the development of some muscle memory as to where all the proper buttons are, the D5 has proven to be one of the most reliable, and as such, one of the least stressful cameras I've ever had the pleasure of using.
Barney Britton Barney Britton Camera Expert
The Nikon D5 is a flagship camera and as such it offers an excellent blend of performance and operational finesse, as we'd expect from a product of this type. The D5 isn't for everyone, of course. This is a big, heavy, expensive DSLR designed for working pros that need the best AF, the fastest shooting and the toughest construction.
Rishi Sanyal Rishi Sanyal Camera Expert
No camera I've used can follow a subject around the frame and focus continuously on it, even during bursts, like the D5. This makes it easier to target a bride's eyes and nail the decisive moment, or capture an erratic motorcyclist at the peak of action. One of my favorite features is the extensive button customizability: I can switch AF modes with a simple button press so that if one fails, I can instantly fall back on a different one ? in the middle of the action ? to help save a shot.

Reasons to buy

  • Class-leading performance in challenging light: With a new sensor optimized for high ISO performance and a newly designed autofocus system with 99 cross-type points, the D5 will allow you to shoot with full, reliable autofocus in exceedingly dark or backlit conditions conditions.
  • Built like a tank: The D5's all-metal chassis is fully weather-sealed and built to stand up to wet, freezing, dusty and otherwise unsavory conditions wth ease.
  • Customizability: The D5's large size means lots of buttons, many of which offer more customization than predecessors, allowing you set up the camera exactly how you'd like for your style of shooting.
  • Speed and capability: With the ability to take up to 200 Raw images at 12 fps and a battery rated to a whopping 3780 shots, the D5 is set up to make sure you don't miss a moment.
  • Best-in-class AF subject tracking: The D5's ability to track a subject around the frame, particularly during bursts, is unmatched, thanks to dedicated processing power and a high-res 180k-pixel RGB metering sensor used for subject and face recognition.

Things to consider

  • Size and weight: The size of the D5 means room for a robust shutter and a big battery, but it also means that it might not be the right fit for those that like to travel light.
  • Video mode: Although 4K is a welcome addition to simple 1080p capture, both modes lack detail relative to mirrorless competition. Video support tools are also limited, and rudimentary focusing in live view can cause distracting focus hunting in your clips.
  • Sensor performance: The D5 excels at high ISO shooting for low lighting conditions, but for photographers looking for expansive dynamic range to deal with high contrast scenes, there are better and more affordable options available.

Product description

Style:Body (CF Version)  |  Configuration:Base

Innovation for inspiration. What determines when Nikon releases a full-frame flagship camera? When technological innovation demands it. Introducing the D5, an FX-format DSLR that makes the impossible possible. Huge advancements in sensor design, autofocus, metering and image processing result in thrilling new capabilities-low light shooting all the way to ISO 102,400 (expandable to an unheard of ISO 3,280,000), precise AF detection and tracking across that entire ISO range, regardless of your subject's speed or direction changes, blazing fast 12 fps continuous shooting, 4K UHD video and, of course, image quality that captures the hearts and minds of your viewers. This is not iteration, friends. This is innovation...spectacular innovation. How will it change the way you shoot? New 20.8MP FX-format CMOS image sensor and EXPEED 5 image processing Widest native ISO range ever in a Nikon full-frame DSLR: ISO 100 to 102,400 (expandable to Hi-5, ISO 3,280,000) Redesigned AF system with a 153 focus points, 99 cross-type sensors and a dedicated processor 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) video recording and pro-grade video features 12 fps continuous shooting with full AF and AE performance; up to 200 shots in a single burst Game-changing low light capabilities Nikon's widest native ISO range ever The low light performance of the D5 might make it a legend. With Nikon's widest native ISO range (100 to 102,400) and highest expanded range (up to Hi-5 ISO 3,280,000), advancements in noise reduction and color fidelity and a next-generation AF system that performs in near darkness (EV -4), a world of new shooting opportunities has opened. Capture clear, sharp images you may not have attempted before - at night, in dark reception halls, arenas and more. For surveillance and security applications, this expanded ISO range means getting a shot others can't see without a flash. EXPEED 5, Nikon's most powerful p
