STAY ON TOP OF YOUR GAME WITH NEXT-GENERATION 153-POINT AF AND 200 NEF (RAW) IMAGE BUFFER
Own the game with Nikon’s phenomenal new autofocus (AF) system. With an incredible 153 focus points and 99 cross-type sensors, the Nikon D5 XQD offers exceptionally wide coverage. Whether you are shooting the race or the red carpet, almost every situation is covered. Small subjects moving at high speed can be tracked with a new level of precision. Subjects at the edge of the frame are easily detected, and vertical shooting is vastly improved. AF sensitivity down to -4 EV enables superior low-light performance, and all AF modes have been improved. The system is configurable in 153-point, 72-point and 25-point coverage settings in Continuous AF mode. All 153 focus points are compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses with an open aperture of f/5.6 or faster, and 15 central focus points work with an effective aperture of f/8. The camera’s high-performance buffer allows up to 200 NEF (RAW) or large JPEG images to be captured during one high-speed burst: enough to cover an entire 100m sprint final without taking your finger off the shutter release button.
BEAT THE ODDS WITH A WINNING COMBINATION OF POWER AND PRECISION
The phenomenal performance of the Nikon D5 XQD is all you need to capture images that defy the odds. Thanks to a new AF ASIC unit, maximum computing power is allocated to AF at all times. No matter how fast the action is, the camera does not compromise. Shoot at up to 12 frames per second (fps) with AE/AF tracking, or at up to 14 fps with mirror up. AF tracking and viewfinder visibility are vastly improved when shooting sports or any scene in which subjects tend to change direction suddenly. Faster sequential shutter and mirror mechanisms significantly reduce viewfinder blackout during high-speed bursts. For ultimate precision, pair the D5 with a professional NIKKOR lens equipped with SPORT VR mode, such as the AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E or the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E. SPORT VR mode also delivers a stable viewfinder image when tracking high-speed movement. Combine the Nikon D5 XQD with one of these lenses and you will capture fast-moving, unpredictable subjects with unprecedented smoothness.
MOVE AHEAD OF THE PACK WITH NEW METERING AND IMAGE SENSORS
The sheer imaging power of the Nikon D5 XQD is a liberating experience. The all-new 20.8-megapixel FX-format CMOS image sensor and 180K-pixel RGB metering sensor deliver phenomenally accurate subject recognition and image detail. Even if you are shooting fast sports indoors, this camera will get you the shot. And not just any shot: tonal gradations are richer and more accurate. The Nikon “D5 XQD” also boasts a new 3.2 inch, 2360k-dot LCD monitor, which offers touch operation in review mode. With a level of responsiveness comparable to smartphones, this high-resolution screen means you can easily check and select key images on the spot. Shoot in Live View and you can use touch operation to change the focus point, or acquire preset Spot White Balance data, based on the selected area within the frame. For even greater control, Picture Control 2.0 makes it easy to define parameters whether you are shooting stills or video. Ease post-production with the Flat pre-setting for maximum dynamic range and fine-adjust details with the Clarity pre-setting.
FROM BRIGHT SUNLIGHT TO ASTRONOMICAL TWILIGHT: SHOOT BEYOND WHAT THE EYE CAN SEE
The Nikon D5 XQD opens boundless possibilities for low-light shooting. With a standard ISO range of 100 to 102400, and the highest expanded sensitivity in Nikon’s history, the envelope is yours to push. Thanks to the camera’s new EXPEED 5 image processing engine, image quality is unprecedentedly high across the standard ISO range. This exceptionally clean performance is made possible by a signal processing system optimised for the new sensor’s 25% higher pixel count. Fine noise is dramatically reduced and even cropped images shot at high ISOs retain their quality. In an incredible feat of engineering, the ISO range can now be extended to ISO 3280000 equivalent, at the Hi 5 setting. Designed for specialist use, such as surveillance or security applications, these astonishingly high ISO counts enable color images to be captured without a flash in astronomical twilight, which is equivalent to an amazingly low 0.001 lux.
Game-changing low light capabilities
Nikon’s widest native ISO range ever
The low light performance of the Nikon D5 XQD 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.
