The New Nikon D5 Shooting At 12 FPS Is The Most Satisfying Sound You'll Ever Hear

The New Nikon D5 Shooting at 12 FPS Is the Most Satisfying Sound You'll Ever Hear

Revealed this past week at CES 2016, Nikon's D5 is the company's new flagship DSLR with a 20.3-megapixel full-frame sensor, and a hefty $US6500 ($9253) price tag. But watching this video of the camera's new 12 frames-per-second, 153-point autofocus system in action will still make you lust for one.

The folks at DCFever spent some quality time with the new DSLR while at CES and shot a video, through the D5's viewfinder, of it shooting and instantly autofocusing at a blazing 12 frames-per-second. It only starts to slow down once the new camera's massive buffer reaches its max capacity of 200 14-bit lossless RAW + JPG files.

Few of us will be able to justify the cost of this beast when it arrives in the US in March, but that's not going to stop us from desperately wanting one. Australian pricing and availability is not yet available.

    Canon users have been shooting at 12fps for 3 years, you might want to check out the 1DX. Australian pricing will be a sick joke, at least $8.5-9K

      The Canon 1D X is only rated 12 FPS in manual focus and at 1/1,000 or faster and at maximum aperture and below ISO 25,600. Shoot at any other condition, and it slows.

        Not true. The 1DX can do 12fps with full autofocus.

        It's only on the "super high speed" continuous (14fps) that the shutter is locked up and focusing becomes manual only.

    Thank you for that. I had to go for a cold shower and a liedown after hearing that.
