Nikon announced its long-awaited flagship DSLR camera, the D5, at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 (CES 2016) along with the D500 and an action camera called KeyMission 360.
Major camera-makers like Canon, Panasonic, Olympus and Sony seemed not too keen to showcase their latest cameras at the CES, but Nikon impressed everyone with its D5, D500 and KeyMission 360.
The D5, successor to the D4, is Nikon's most powerful camera to date with impressive specifications. It is priced at $6,500 (without lens) and is scheduled to hit the stores in March this year.
The new flagship DSLR camera comes packed with a 20.8MP FX-format CMOS image sensor and EXPEED 5 image processing. It has sensitivity ISO 100 to 102,400, expandable up to ISO 3,280,000, AF system with 153 focus points, 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) video recording and pro-grade video features, and 12 fps continuous shooting with full AF and AE performance.
The Nikon D500 is another impressive camera, priced at $2,000, and expected to be available in the market in March. It has a 20.9MP DX format CMOS sensor, EXPEED 5 image processor, Multi-CAM 20K Autofocus sensor with 153/99 AF points, ISO range of 100-51,200 expandable up to 1,640,000 and 4K UHD video.
Besides D5 and D500, Nikon announced an action camera called KeyMission 360 at the CES. The Japanese company promised the camera's ability to shoot 360-degree videos with the help of aspherical lens at 4K Ultra HD resolution. It has dual lenses and image sensors that produce single, immersive ultra-high-definition videos and still images. It is also waterproof (approximately 100ft/30m) and shockproof. However, price and availability of the product is not known yet.
