Nikon made its full-frame FX-format Nikon D5 digital SLR official today at CES 2016, having revealed its development back in November. The Tokyo-based camera manufacturer also unveiled the Nikon D500, a new top-of-the-line DX-format D500.
And for a final surprise, it's entering the action-cam market with the KeyMission 360, a 360x360-degree compact rugged video camera.
Nikon says the D5's autofocus system is the most advanced it's ever made, while the image sensor's wide sensitivity range will make it perfect for sports and low-light photography.
Here are the D5's key specs so far:
- 153 autofocus points with 55 selectable, 99-point cross sensor
- 20.8-megapixel FX-format (full frame)
- Expeed 5 image processor from ISO 100 to 102,400
- Sensitivity range extendable to ISO 50 to ISO 3,280,000
- 4K video capture as well as in-camera 4K time-lapse video
The D500 will have the same 153-point autofocus system and Expeed 5 processor as the D5, but with a smaller, DX-format (APS-C) sensor.
The D500 is the first to have Nikon's new version of SnapBridge wireless communication technology. Using Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity, it will allow you to stay connected with your smartphone all the time, so you don't need to constantly reconnect with it to transfer from the camera.
The Nikon KeyMission 360, meanwhile, is a small, cube-shaped 360-degree spherical camera that's shockproof to 2 meters (6.6 feet) and waterproof to 30 meters (100 feet).
