Nikon Announces D5 For INR 435000


Launched globally two days ago, Nikon D5 arrives in India today. The new Nikon camera was officially unveiled at CES on Tuesday. The camera boasts a new 20.82-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. This along with  a 180,000-pixel RGB metering sensor will deliver more accurate tonal gradations and detail, according to Nikon.


Nikon’s newest flagship camera is powered by a new EXPEED 5 image processing engine. Some notable features include 4K/UHD video recording. The Nikon D5 can shoot 4K movies (3840×2160 pixels) at 30p/25p/24p in dot-by-dot native pixel crop, which ensures the highest image quality as well as record Full HD (1080p) videos at frames up to 50p/60p in multiple formats.


Capturing lowlight images will be a cinch as the camera provides a native ISO range from 100 to 102,400, extendable up to a whopping 3,280,000 equivalent at the Hi 5 setting.

The new-fangled D5 outperforms the expectations by delivering a potent fusion of extensive image capturing power alongside a detailed and immediate acquisition performance, regardless of the environment. Nikon D5 is ‘I AM VISION OUTPERFORMED’.” said, Mr. Sajjan Kumar, Vice President – Imaging Division, Nikon India Pvt. Ltd.
