Mirco Lazzari
The photo of the rider, when he turned the corner and instantly he was right up close
to me, is one of the big steps this camera has taken, because of the way autofocus
helped to track and acquire the image. When you shoot this kind of picture, you have
to shoot 12 photos in one second, and if the viewfinder gives you good visibility inside
the camera, you can do it better — it’s another step forward! The ability to use long
lenses without a monopod is also very important. When the lens is very heavy, you can
miss some photos, but with the new lenses, it’s unbelievable: I was able to shoot all day
yesterday with the 600mm, 400mm, 800mm — all without a monopod.

Some of the moves these athletes do are extremely fast, and I think this is when
the D5 really pushes things to a new level. We have better ISO performance,
which means it gives me the chance to get a faster shutter and that means there
is another chance to freeze any sort of action. We had one backlit situation where
the sun was coming in really low, so we chose one player in a white jersey. We
thought it would be a good chance to see how the D5 performs with these lowcontrast, backlit objects. We got up to 20 or 30 frames in a row and the AF tracking
performance was really impressive.

This is an amazing imaging machine. It has unbelievably accurate autofocus
systems, high ISO beyond anything I could previously have imagined possible,
and unmatched ergonomics. This camera has it all. I’m so excited to have a 4K
file from a Nikon. It allows me to seamlessly use Nikon optics, which are simply
the best lenses ever produced. 4K is critical to me because I want to show every
detail of every single thing I shoot, in a file size that will allow it to remain viable
and contemporary far into the future. Nikon represents strength, style, reliability,
consistency, and family. I’ve dedicated my life to storytelling, to creating images
both moving and still, and I can absolutely depend on Nikon to see me through.
I absolutely loved working with the D5. It has a new touch screen, which I find very
helpful; when I’m on location, I can quickly zoom into an image to check sharpness,
hair/makeup and many other little details. As a fashion and beauty photographer,
capturing those perfect skin tones is extremely important, and I feel like this camera
really excels in that area. It’s very true to the skin tone and captures rich colors really
beautifully. Thanks to its continuous shooting speed and autofocus, you can now
capture what you hadn’t been able to before: those split second moments that happen
in between expressions are usually the best shots.
One great update in the D5 is its better autofocus detection in low light. Now even at
-4 EV it’s possible for the autofocus to detect the subject, which is really helpful early
in the morning, or at night. We had a situation where I actually had finished shooting
for the day but then I saw two grizzly bear sub-adults fighting or playing in the water.
It was very dark and I was actually shooting at ISO 102400, but the image quality was
very impressive. In the Alaska shoot, it was raining almost every day and the camera
was usually wet, but it still worked perfectly. For me as a photographer, that’s extremely
important: it means I have a tool that works in all kinds of conditions.

153-point AF system with 99 cross sensors
offers wider, denser coverage
The D5 features an AF system with 153 densely
packed focus points (55 selectable points)*, that are
compatible with all AF NIKKOR lenses and provide
over 130% coverage compared to the D4S. Ninetynine of them are cross sensors with superior subjectdetection performance, that are distributed efficiently
in central and peripheral areas, delivering more
compositional freedom. The camera demonstrates
higher accuracy in overall subject detection, including
small subjects as well as those with low overall
contrast, and successfully achieves focus.
* Number of focus points that function as cross sensors may vary depending
on lens and maximum aperture.

Heart of the new-generation AF system
The D5’s AF system detects low-contrast subjects.
153 focus points with 99 cross-type sensors × Dedicated AF engine
AF compatible down to -4 EV, for smooth
and reliable focusing in low light
Breathtaking AF performance
even when using a teleconverter
Newly developed to keep noise to an absolute
minimum, the D5’s Multi-CAM 20K autofocus sensor
module achieves focus at -3 EV* with all focus points,
and at -4 EV * with the central point. This makes
autofocus possible even when your subject is in a lowlight or low-contrast situation. By combining superb
image quality, provided up to the highest standard
ISO sensitivity setting of 102400, and metering with
extended low-light performance, the D5 significantly
broadens the scope of your shooting opportunities.
When using a teleconverter, all 153 focus points
are compatible with effective apertures of f/5.6 or
faster*. Even when apertures are slower than f/5.6,
autofocusing is possible in many scenes. Fifteen focus
points, including nine selectable points, are compatible
with an effective aperture of f/8.

The D5 is newly equipped with a dedicated AF engine
chip, capable of rapid calculations. Between this
engine and the sequence control microcomputer,
several tasks are handled in parallel, speeding up
autofocus calculations and control. The result is
superior AF response, which assists photographers
in scenes such as tracking a soccer ball centered by
a player and capturing another player heading it. In
addition, the AF engine permits a new AF algorithm
to be employed, which efficiently coordinates a
range of operations, including advanced subject
detection and detailed scene analysis. This enables
precise AF tracking of moving subjects during
approx. 12-fps continuous shooting. The
superior AF performance during highspeed continuous shooting
is compounded further
when used with the
latest NIKKOR supertelephoto lenses.

Further improvement in seven
AF-area modes
Quick AF-area mode switching allows
temporary use of a different mode
The new AF system enhances all seven AF-area modes.
Taking advantage of the new, smaller focus points,
single-point AF achieves pinpoint focus. In dynamicarea AF (25, 72 and 153 points), group-area AF,
3D-tracking and auto-area AF, the increased number of
focus points densely covers each AF area, enhancing
subject acquisition. Auto-area AF is particularly
effective when shooting subjects that move around
freely, such as figure skaters or ice dancers. As the
camera automatically detects subjects and focuses in
this mode, you can concentrate more on composition
and selecting moments to capture. Even during highspeed shooting, the camera demonstrates accurate
Switching between AF-area modes is faster as you can
assign different modes to custom buttons (Pv, Fn1,
Fn2 or lens focus function and other buttons). When
the button is pressed, the camera switches to the preassigned AF-area mode (not including 3D-tracking).
Release the button and the D5 reverts to the original
AF-area mode. This lets you change AF-area modes
quickly and flexibly according to the subject matter
and purpose.
Increased, closer-knit focus points
enhance all seven AF-area modes
Single-point AF
7 AF-area modes × Quick mode switching function
Dynamic-area AF (25 points)
Single-point AF
The camera achieves focus with a selected point.
Dynamic-area AF (25, 72 and 153 points)
The camera acquires the subject with one selected
primary focus point. If the subject leaves this selected
point during tracking, the camera continues to focus,
based on the information from surrounding points
(areas covered by 25, 72 or 153 points *). This is
effective for erratic movement that is hard to follow
with one focus point.
* In dynamic-area AF with 25 or 72 points, the number of focus points
actually used may be less than 25 or 72, depending on the selected
primary focus point.
The camera uses color information of the subject that
is initially focused by your selected point. It maintains
focusing by automatically changing the focus
point within all 153 points, following the subject’s
movement, as long as the shutter-release button is
pressed halfway. This is an advantage when shooting
moving subjects in a creative composition.
Auto-area AF
The camera identifies the major subject automatically
using all 153 points and achieves focus. When faces
are detected, it prioritizes them as portrait subjects in
any lens servo mode.
Dynamic-area AF (72 points)
Dynamic-area AF (153 points)
Group-area AF
The camera recognizes the subject as an area, using
the selected point and surrounding points as a group.
This is highly effective for erratic movement that is
difficult to capture with one point. If faces are detected
in AF-S lens servo mode, the camera prioritizes them
as portrait subjects.

AF lock-on optimizes tracking performance
according to each shooting situation
The performance of
AF lock-on, or “Focus
t ra c k i n g w i t h l o c k on*,”can be adjusted by
two parameters: “Blocked
shot AF response” and
“Subject motion.” The
former option adjusts AF response when an object
passes between the subject and camera on a scale
from “Quick (quicker response and easier to shift
focus to the intervening object and then return it to
the original subject)” to “Delayed (less likely to lose
focus from the original subject).” The latter option
can be toggled according to the subject’s movement
characteristics towards the camera, from “Erratic
(movement prone to sudden starts and stops)” to
“Steady (movement at a constant speed).”
Subject motion: Erratic
* Available in AF-C lens servo mode.
Subject motion: Steady

Adjustable AF lock-on × Auto setting for AF fine-tune
Achieve focus in live view
Auto AF fine-tune simplifies adjustment for
minor variations between camera and lens
To ensure as accurate focus as possible for each lens
type, AF fine-tune lets you make subtle adjustments
to the focus point. This was once a tedious process
of repeatedly setting the tuning value, shooting
and confirming the results. However, now with the
D5’s auto fine-tuning option*, it’s simply a matter
of achieving focus in live view and then letting the
camera automatically acquire the AF tuning value
with just a few button operations. Adjustments can
be made quickly and easily during a shoot, with the
results automatically registered in a “Saved value” list,
allowing you to focus accurately.
Setting display: Automatic setting of the tuning value
* “AF fine-tune” in the setup menu must be turned on to enable the tuning
values for shooting.
Auto AF fine-tune example
The auto fine-tuning sample operation (shown right) uses
an AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lens, with a 24 cm ×
24 cm/9.4 in. × 9.4 in. Nikon brand-logo wall panel as the
subject. During live view, focus is achieved after creating
sufficient focus distance and confirming that the subject
appears at an appropriate size. The ideal subject is a flat
object with color contrast. One criterion for the focus distance
is whether it frames a bust shot of a portrait subject with the
particular lens in use.

12-fps continuous shooting
with full-time AF/AE up to 200 frames
The D5 provides photographers with the capacity and
power to continue shooting with no loss of speed or
confidence. The cutting-edge sequencer mechanism
minimizes the shutter charge and mirror sequence
time, while the image sensor rapidly reads out data
and the new EXPEED 5 image-processing engine
features extremely fast calculation. What’s more, the
buffer memory has been expanded. The result of such
enhancements is a camera that delivers stable highspeed continuous shooting at a frame rate of approx.
12 fps *1 (with full-time AF and AE) at any image
quality or sensitivity, including Hi 5. It permits you to
shoot continuously up to 200 frames even in 14-bit
lossless compressed RAW*2.

Cutting-edge viewfinder visibility:
Track subjects clearly in continuous shooting
12 fps × Stable viewfinder image × 200-frame continuous
New mirror driving mechanism
providing stable viewfinder images in
continuous shooting
Unprecedented stability in viewfinder images:
Truly confident tracking in continuous shooting
The length of blackout time and image blur in the
viewfinder determine viewfinder visibility and the
photographer’s subject recognition. The D5’s newly
developed mirror driving mechanism has significantly
reduced blackout time, which ensures the continuity of
viewfinder images, while also cutting image blur. These
improvements result in stunning viewfinder visibility
during continuous shooting, realizing truly confident
tracking of erratically moving subjects — previously
difficult to achieve.
Combined with NIKKOR lenses’ VR SPORT
to further enhance viewfinder visibility
The Vibration Reduction (VR) system’s SPORT mode,
incorporated in new super-telephoto lenses and other
models of the NIKKOR series, cuts vibrations effectively
and delivers an incredibly stable viewfinder image.
Together with NIKKOR lenses, the D5 creates a more
complete camera system — one that makes it easier
to frame subjects prone to sudden starts and stops in
high-speed continuous shooting.
Mirror stepping motor’s assistance
The motor accelerates the initial mirror-up and -down
movement, speeding up the whole process. It also
decelerates the mirror-down movement just before it’s
completed, in order to minimize mirror bounce.
14-fps continuous shooting

Standard sensitivity up to ISO 102400 —
the highest in Nikon’s history
Working in synergy, Nikon’s new, in-house developed
FX-format CMOS sensor and the new EXPEED 5
image-processing engine allow the D5 to achieve
standard sensitivity up to ISO 102400 — the highest
in Nikon’s history, providing further enhanced image
quality in the wide sensitivity range that starts from
ISO 100. The sensitivity can also be reduced down
to ISO 50 equivalent (Lo 1) or elevated up to ISO
3280000 equivalent (Hi 5). At Hi 5, you can now take
pictures of extremely dark scenes — scenes that were
previously impossible — and capture them in color.
A whole new level of high-sensitivity
performance: Edge-to-edge sharpness

Up to ISO 102400 × 20.8 megapixels × Wide dynamic range
Newly designed Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor:
An excellent balance of three key elements
ISO 10000
The picture on the left page is cropped out of the JPEG picture
above, and enlarged. JPEG images shot at high sensitivities retain
high quality even after aggressive cropping, ensuring appropriate
quality for media outlets.
The D5 incorporates a highly refined Nikon FX-format
CMOS sensor. High resolution delivered by the 20.8
effective megapixels, rich tonal gradation, and a
refined signal-to-noise ratio, which contributes to
high image quality at high sensitivities — the sensor
acquires image data with an excellent total balance
of these three elements, satisfying a wide spectrum
of photographic purposes. Handling this data, the
EXPEED 5 image-processing engine, which pursues
ultimate detail reproduction, delivers JPEG pictures
of an appropriate standard for media outlets straight
out of the camera, all with image integrity that is
further retained after aggressive cropping. Overall, this
contributes to a more efficient, flexible workflow. The
image sensor also realizes a wide sensitivity range
starting at ISO 100 thanks to its optimized pixel
structure, simultaneously providing significantly
increased sensitivity per unit area, while maintaining
advanced color reproduction capability. Together, these
factors contribute to bolstered image quality in the
high sensitivity range. While rapidly reading out image
data of a wide dynamic range, the sensor markedly
reduces noise generated within, ensuring excellent
noise reduction, throughout the sensitivity range.

New EXPEED 5 image-processing engine
with enhanced calculation capabilities
Three auto modes in white balance
selectable for a range of purposes
Boasting powerful calculation capabilities, the new
EXPEED 5 image-processing engine easily handles
data from the D5’s increased pixel-count image
sensor as well as high-speed continuous shooting. Its
increased data writing speed from the image sensor
enables rapid data processing of approx. 14-fps (mirror
up) ultra-high-speed continuous shooting and 4K UHD
(3840 × 2160)/30p video recording. Taking advantage
of this data handling performance, the new imageprocessing algorithm quickly and comprehensively
processes data that comes with a wide dynamic range,
maintaining the rich information. Bringing the best out
of the image sensor, it creates a richer, more natural
rendering of smooth tonal gradation.
The D5’s white balance features three auto modes to
offer you a range of optional colors. The Auto 0 “Keep
white (reduce warm colors)” option — equivalent
to the D4S’ Auto 1 “Normal” mode — faithfully
renders the whites of team uniforms even under the
complicated lighting sources of outdoor stadiums. It
also brings out the full white of dresses at wedding
banquets. The D5’s Auto 1 “Normal” maintains a
balance between the original subject color and the
ambient lighting. In the Auto 2 “Keep warm lighting
colors” option, you obtain images with a natural sense
of warmth, retaining the color of incandescent or
other lighting.

Wide ISO range × New EXPEED 5 image-processing engine
Picture Control system for
your ideal image creation
Superior image quality ensured
even in high-sensitivity range
Thanks to the new FX-format CMOS sensor and
EXPEED 5 image-processing engine with a further
enhanced, new noise-reduction function, the D5
realizes unprecedented image quality in the highsensitivity range including between ISO 3200 and
12800 — the range favored by sports photographers.
The camera also reproduces delicate details of subjects
in highly saturated colors — which has previously
been difficult — thanks to the rich, natural rendering
of tonal gradation achieved by maximizing data with
a wide dynamic range from the image sensor. The
new image-processing algorithm takes advantage
of EXPEED 5’s advanced performance and brings
improved accuracy to auto white balance.
With seven preset options, let Nikon’s
Picture Control system help you create
the ideal image to fit your creative
intentions or picture usage purposes.
By fine-tuning preset settings such as
sharpening, clarity, contrast and brightness, Picture
Control opens up a wider range of paths towards
your ideal image. The Flat option, with a tone curve
closest to a straight line, allows you to acquire as
much information as possible regarding your subjects’
color, brightness and texture. Flat prevents blown-out
highlights, blocked-up shadows and color saturation
even after adjusting or editing, completing pictures
with rich contrast, colors and tonal gradation. It is
effective for creating video material for color grading
in post-production.
Create ideal images and enhance workflow
efficiency with custom Picture Controls
Creating custom Picture Controls for specific subjects
and scenes delivers more ideal JPEG images — that
won’t require post-production processing — straight
out of the camera, which can speed up your workflow.
This in-camera process is easy, as it lets you create
your own Picture Controls by customizing the settings
of the preset modes. Up to nine custom options can be
saved in the camera. Further customize them in detail
on a computer with Picture Control Utility 2 installed
(available for free download from Nikon websites),
and then transfer your unique custom Picture Controls
via memory cards and register them with your camera.
4K UHD videos ×
D5’s highlight performance
Multi-area D-Movie: offering selectable
image areas (angles of view)
Auto ISO control for recording with a fixed
shutter speed and aperture in M mode
Dedicated features for more efficient
filmmaking workflow
The combination of sharp 4K UHD videos and the
unique, high performance of a Nikon flagship D-SLR
will push the boundaries of creative video, opening up
new shooting opportunities that fully bring out this
camera’s potential.
The D5 offers four image area options — the 4K
UHD movie image area (3840 × 2160) and three
options compatible with Full HD. The FX-based movie
format takes advantage of the large image sensor
and produces video with beautiful bokeh effects.
Compared to the FX-based mode, the DX-based movie
format and 4K UHD movie image area (3840 × 2160)
have an angle of view equivalent to approx. 1.5×
lens focal length, while that of the 1920 × 1080 crop
is equivalent to approx. 3× lens focal length. These
image areas can deliver powerful telephoto effects.
Combined with the diverse NIKKOR lens lineup,
the D5’s four selectable image areas allow you to
try different styles more fluidly, and with a minimal
number of lenses.
When filming a scene in which the brightness
significantly changes within one take, such as following
a subject from a dark corridor into the noonday sun,
you may want to maintain the intended depth of field
and motion-blur effects. In cases like this, fixing the
shutter speed and aperture in exposure mode M while
using auto ISO sensitivity control will help keep the
appropriate exposure. Set a maximum sensitivity limit
between ISO 200 and Hi 5 to avoid running too high.
Movie-shooting menu
The D5 has a new, dedicated movie-shooting menu.
This comes in particularly handy when switching back
and forth between still-photo shooting and movie
recording, because you can select different settings
like white balance and Picture Control in advance and
maintain them throughout the shooting.
■ 4K UHD videos × Dot-by-dot readout ×
Dot-by-dot readout means that information from every
pixel on the image sensor is recorded to produce video
with less in-camera processing, delivering detail-rich,
high-resolution videos. Combining this method and
EXPEED 5’s uniquely advanced video processing, while
taking advantage of the 4K UHD’s high resolution, the
D5 produces stunning quality videos.
■ 4K UHD videos × High ISO performance
Produce more videos under extreme low light. The
D5’s maximum standard sensitivity of ISO 102400,
expandable up to Hi 5 (ISO 3280000), is compatible
with 4K UHD videos. When using the auto ISO control,
the camera automatically adjusts its sensitivity
between ISO 100 and Hi 5. In exposure mode M,
the sensitivity is manually adjustable between ISO
100 and Hi 5 in the movie-shooting menu. As the D5
delivers excellent video image quality even in the high
ISO range, light levels will not hinder 4K UHD video
production with this camera.
Agile production of expressive, high-quality
videos, supported in any scenes
4K UHD video × ISO 102400 × NIKKOR × Rugged body
Equipped with 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) video,
vital to filmmakers
For moviemaking professionals today, 4K videorecording capability is crucial. The D5 comes equipped
with 4K, and features enhanced sharpness of HD and
Full HD videos as well. The camera records 4K UHD
(3840 × 2160) 30p/25p/24p videos, saving the data
onto in-camera memory cards. The HDMI output of
uncompressed data is available at 4K UHD as well
as Full HD, and can be directly transferred to an
external display or recorder simultaneously. Saving a
selected frame option is available with 4K UHD videos,
allowing you to extract approx.
8-megapixel JPEG pictures —
yet another technique for nailing
decisive moments.
■ 4K UHD videos × Wide range of NIKKOR lineup
The NIKKOR lens series has been highly praised for
sharpness and exceptional rendering by countless
professionals including filmmakers. Add in the diversity
of the lens lineup, and the D5 becomes a uniquely
agile cinematic system that gives you the power to
realize a broad range of videos using 4K UHD’s high
resolution. The 4K UHD movie image area (3840 ×
2160) is almost the same as the DX-based movie
■ 4K UHD videos × Flat Picture Control
Of the seven Picture Controls, Flat is the most effective
in producing video material for post-production thanks
to the way it enables recording of as much image
information as possible, including subject colors,
brightness and texture. You can produce high-resolution
videos that faithfully reflect your creative intentions in a
relatively simple process.

Exposure compensation and power aperture
engineered for movie recording
Shooting a scene with drastic exposure changes, such
as when filming the sun at dawn or panning from a
dark area to a brighter area, the D5 renders everything
with gradual transitions via a delicate auto exposure
control dedicated to movie recording. Even at high ISO
settings, the camera reproduces the changes naturally
while maintaining rich tonal gradation and details.
Exposure compensation is now possible*1 using the
Pv button (for + compensation) and Fn1 button (for
- compensation), allowing smooth compensation by
changing the ISO sensitivities. The power aperture
control*1, 2 can be also assigned to the Pv button
(power aperture [open]) and Fn1 button (power
aperture [close]), allowing you to continuously change
brightness and depth of field during filming with
smooth, quiet control of apertures.
*1 Smooth, stepless adjustment is possible via operation of buttons pre-assigned
with functions during movie live view and recording.
*2 Available in A and M exposure modes.
Handy in-camera time-lapse movie feature,
compatible with 4K UHD
Capture the movement of clouds against the
heavens or the stars across the night sky with a timelapse movie, which renders slow, gradual changes
dramatically in a condensed timeframe. The D5 allows
you to produce time-lapse movies easily, and all
inside the camera. This feature is compatible with
any frame size/frame rate or movie quality, including
4K UHD/30p. What’s more, the exposure smoothing
function is also available. This efficiently reduces
unwanted flicker effects in a time-lapse movie where
the brightness changes widely, such as at dawn or
dusk, by automatically reducing the subtle exposure
variance of each frame in A and other auto modes.
The exposure smoothing function is also available in
interval timer photography.
Setting changes via P button
By pressing the P button during movie live view, you
can quickly access and change the following settings:
movie image area, frame size/frame rate, movie
quality, movie-recording target destination, monitor
brightness and headphone volume. Microphone
sensitivity, frequency response, wind noise reduction
and highlight display can be accessed and adjusted
during movie recording.
Comprehensive sound control for
realistic sound recording
While equipped with internal stereo microphones,
capable of realistic audio recording, the D5 is also
compatible with the ME-1 Stereo Microphone and
ME-W1 Wireless Microphone (both optional). During
filming, microphone sensitivity levels can be adjusted
in 20 increments while visibly confirming them with
the audio level indicators. You can monitor the sound
using third-party headphones (the volume can be
adjusted across 30 increments). Choose the most
appropriate frequency response function. Select
“Wide (wide range)” for recording a broad range of
frequencies — from music to the bustling hum of
a city street. Meanwhile, the “Voice (vocal range)”
function is optimized for recording human speech.
Wind noise reduction is also available when using the
built-in microphone.

Touch operation of the monitor
Touch operation during playback
Place a finger on the bottom of the display and a “Frame advance bar” appears,
allowing you to scroll rapidly through playback images. The movement of your
finger determines the number of frames to be scrolled through. Focus-point
confirmation on continuous shots of sports scenes is easier, as you can concentrate
on one spot of a frame while each sharp playback image quickly moves by. Double
tap anywhere on the frame to magnify the spot you are touching. Movie playback,
pause, stop and audio control can be done with the tap of a finger as well.
Attach an optional WT-6/A/B/C Wireless Transmitter to the
D5 to perform high-speed transfer of image data from the
camera to computers*1 and FTP servers via wireless LAN. The
maximum communication distance is approx. 200 m/656.1 ft*2,
and the speed is boosted thanks to compatibility with the new
standard IEEE802.11ac (2×2 VHT80). You can quickly send
pictures taken out in the field to editors’ computers*1, or from
studios to storage/review servers. The WT-6/A/B/C also enables
wireless camera remote control from a computer *1 with

according to your workflow. You can copy stored images from one card to another,
while choosing a card with enough space to work as a movie-recording destination.
* Double memory card slot unit can be exchanged after purchase at Nikon service facilities (a charge applies).
RAW size options, selectable for different purposes
The D5’s RAW files have three size options: RAW size large, medium and small.
When looking for speed in data transfer, select “RAW size medium” or “RAW size
small” (both 12-bit lossless compressed). While being easy to handle, they retain
the very flexible editing unique to RAW data. They are also compatible with incamera “NEF (RAW) processing.”
Quicker, more efficient network connections and settings
Frame advance bar
Touch operation during live view
To move the focus point, simply touch anywhere on the screen. When using “Spot
white balance” mode, the camera acquires the preset manual data of the spot you
touch during live view, allowing for even quicker white balance adjustments.
Establish a network connection faster than ever. The newly incorporated Fn3 button,
under the OK button, has the “Connect to network” command pre-assigned as the
default setting, allowing for quick access to the network menu screen and effortless
connection to the network. This function can also be assigned to Pv, Fn1 and Fn2
buttons. Once established, you can save the network settings on a memory card
and transfer it to another D5. This significantly speeds up the entire connection
process when working with several D5 units.
More convenient, multifunctional HTTP server mode
In addition to conventional methods of remote shooting and viewing pictures
stored on in-camera memory cards, the D5’s HTTP server mode allows continuous
shooting with remote cameras via a computer or smart-device web browser. The
D5 allows you to enter text via web browsers, which means that you can check and
edit in-camera IPTC, comments and copyright information.
Entering text via touch panel
With the touch-operated onscreen keyboard, entering text has become much easier,
helping you quickly register copyright or IPTC information, as well as the names of
files, folder groups and networks. 28
Access point mode for easy connection with wireless LAN
With the optional WT-6/A/B/C Wireless Transmitter (or optional WT-5A/B/C/D)
attached, the D5 can be used as a wireless LAN access point, enabling an effortless

Practical professional operability, further refined for seamless work flow
Refined practicality × Ergonomic design
Greater operability means deeper concentration while shooting
The D5 has achieved a body contour ideal for almost any hand size. The side grip
is long enough to ensure a secure hold for large fingers, while simultaneously
featuring a more rounded form that makes it easier for smaller hands to handle
securely. The bottom grip used in vertical shooting now has a deeper groove and
more space for the middle finger. Both grips fit more comfortably and securely in the
hands, supported by a leather-like surface texture and large rubber thumb patches.
In addition to the exposure compensation button, the ISO button is now located
near the shutter-release button, allowing you to operate exposure-related controls
using your right hand only. The five buttons to the left of the monitor are now larger
in size. In addition, the locations and operational angles of the AF-ON button, subselector, and multi selector for vertical shooting have also been optimized.
Quickly select JPEG image quality and compression options
on one menu screen
The image quality (fine/normal/basic) and the compression option (optimal
quality/size priority) menus are now combined in one menu screen. You can also
select and change these settings by operating the QUAL button and the main

When shooting where light is scarce, the D5’s
button illumination provides enhanced visibility
of the camera controls. The release mode dial
and major button icons on the rear and upperleft sides of the camera can be lit with LED
transparent illumination, as well as the top and
rear control panels. The playback and delete
buttons can now also be illuminated.
■ Silent mode
With the D5, you can record larger images in silent live-view photography than before.
When the FX (36 × 24) 1.0× image area is selected, you get an image size of 2784 ×
1856 pixels (approx. 5 megapixels, with image quality fixed at JPEG fine★*), which is
equivalent to size S images. Continuous shooting is possible for up to 5 s by pressing
the shutter-release button all the way down. Expect approx. 15 fps in the release
mode CL, or approx. 30 fps in CH. In exposure mode M, the shutter speeds can be
set between 1/30 and 1/8000 s, while the ISO 100 to Hi 5 range is available as the
sensitivity range (in other modes, the camera automatically selects the ISO).
* ★ indicates an image quality option with compression optimized to ensure maximum quality.
Quick release-mode selection for instant setting changes
The D5’s release mode dial features a new quick release-mode selection option.
After rotating the dial to this option, operate the release mode button and main
command dial together for smooth release mode change. Also, you can adjust
the continuous shooting speed and self-timer duration, or switch between quiet
shutter release and quiet continuous (approx. 3 fps) modes by operating the
release mode button and sub-command dial simultaneously. When the release
mode dial is set to CL or CH , you can alter the continuous shooting speed by
operating the release mode button and main command dial together. When Q is
selected, this operation changes the release mode to the quiet continuous option.

■ Synchronized release
Expect more flexible control in synchronized shutter release mode, which you can
use by connecting multiple cameras via WT-6/A/B/C Wireless Transmitter, WR-1
or WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller
(all optional). It is possible to enable
or disable the synchronization, as well
as pre-assign interruption functions to
custom buttons like Pv, Fn1 and Fn2.
When synchronization is enabled, you
can interrupt it by pressing a custom
button, allowing you to isolate and
trigger the shutter release of either the

“Rename” option for more convenient image management
When creating new image folders on the D5, you can now use the “Storage folder”
menu of the photo shooting menus to change the last five letters of a folder name
(folder group name)*. Renaming folders using attributes of the pictures stored
inside can help you manage the images more efficiently, such as when sports
photographers create a new folder for each inning of a baseball game.
Newly incorporated Fn2 and Fn3 buttons for increased custom
The D5 incorporates two new custom buttons. The Fn2
button, conveniently placed on the front of the body
for vertical shooting, allows photographers to use three
assigned functions simultaneously in combination with
the Pv and Fn1 buttons also on the front side. With the
Fn3 button on the rear of the body, you can assign the
functions “Connect to network,” “Voice recording” and
“Rating,” as well as “Index marking” and “View photo
shooting info*” when recording movies. The result: a
more streamlined workflow.
* Display still-photo shooting information during movie recording (including
movie live view). This information may differ from movie shooting information.
* Available only with newly created folders.
Lighten overlay and darken overlay: expanding the
possibilities of multiple exposure
Multiple exposure modes combine up to 10 frames to create a single picture.
The previous image overlay modes are now joined by “Lighten” and “Darken.”
With “Lighten” mode, the
camera compares pixels in
each exposure and uses the
brightest. Conversely, the
“Darken” option employs
the darkest.
Lighten mode

■ Split-screen display zoom
When you want to achieve perfect leveling of your subject, such as in architectural
photography, you can employ the D5’s handy split-screen display zoom function.
During live view, two points on the same horizontal line are enlarged on a split
screen (points are indicated by
in the navigation window). The magnification
ratio of the boxes can be adjusted simultaneously, while magnified areas can be
moved horizontally and vertically at the same time. This allows you to fine-tune
the camera angle by confirming the image.
Ultimate reliability: Supporting all your professional needs
Accuracy × Durability
Advanced Scene Recognition System: Further boosted performance
with the new 180K-pixel RGB sensor
The D5’s Advanced Scene Recognition System boasts improved face detection and
low-light metering capability, thanks to its new 180K-pixel RGB sensor (approx.
180,000 pixels), which maintains high sensitivity while significantly increasing
the pixel count. The camera can now detect even smaller faces, boosting AF
performance. Focusing on faces of moving subjects is now easier, thereby aiding
focusing accuracy during approx. 12-fps continuous shooting*1. Metering in
dark environments is now possible down to -3 EV*2, delivering precise metering
even when shooting with a lens combined with a teleconverter at slow effective
apertures in poorly lit indoor sports facilities. Reliability is further fortified across the
board in areas like 3D color matrix metering III, i-TTL balanced fill-flash, highlightweighted metering, and auto white balance.
*1 In auto-area AF as well as when “3D tracking face detection” is selected.
*2 At ISO 100, using 50mm f/1.4 lens, 20°C/68°F. 3D color matrix metering or highlight-weighted metering.
Approx. 100% frame coverage and 0.72× magnification ratio
for thorough confirmation
The D5’s viewfinder with approx.
100% frame coverage achieves a
clear view with high transparency and
neutral color, thanks to a sophisticated
coating applied to various parts of the
main mirror and viewfinder optics. The
magnification ratio of 0.72× makes it
easy to confirm the viewfinder image
as well as all viewfinder information
simultaneously. The camera employs
organic EL display elements in the
viewfinder information display to
ensure easy viewing even under bright
daytime sunlight, as well as rapid response at low temperatures.
Electronic front-curtain shutter minimizes mechanical vibrations
When you want to minimize any vibration caused by the camera mechanism —
for instance, when shooting landscapes with a telephoto lens — switch to the
electronic front-curtain shutter. Selectable in Mup (mirror up) mode*, this makes the
camera’s image sensor act as the front curtain of the focal-plane shutter, eliminating
vibrations caused by mirror bounce and movement of the mechanical front curtain.
You can use a computer to switch to this mode via the optional Camera Control
Pro 2 software.
* The electronic front-curtain shutter cannot be used during continuous shooting at 14 fps with mirror up in CH mode.
Note: When using the electronic front-curtain shutter, the fastest shutter speed available is 1/2000 s, and the highest
sensitivity is ISO 102400.
Durable, high-precision shutter
Tested for 400,000 cycles with the
shutter unit actually loaded into a fully
assembled camera, the D5’s shutter
boasts proven durability, and is ready
to take on the heavy demands of
professionals. It also features a selfdiagnostic shutter monitor, which
automatically detects and minimizes
the difference between the designated
shutter speed and the actual speed,
ensuring maximum precision.
Strong, rugged body with anti-dust and weather sealing
Employing a light and strong magnesium alloy, the D5 possesses an extremely
robust and durable body while maintaining light weight. Effective sealing of joined
sections ensures high resistance to dust and bad weather, letting you shoot with
the utmost confidence, even in inclement conditions.
Detachable eyepiece adapter and eyepiece with fluorine coat
The D5 employs the detachable DK-27
Eyepiece Adapter, which helps quick
attachment of a rain cover. Prepare
another DK-27 and have it attached to
a rain cover in advance. If rain suddenly
starts, you can quickly cover your
camera with it, just like changing the
eyepiece adapter, so you won’t miss
any photogenic moments. What’s more,
Nikon’s unique fluorine coat protects
both sides of the lens incorporated in
the DK-17F Fluorine-Coated Finder
Eyepiece as well as the outer side of the
viewfinder eyepiece lens. It repels dust, water droplets, oil, mud and more — making
it easy to wipe and clean the surface.
Super-extended battery life achieved by the exceptionally
energy-efficient design
The D5 demonstrates exceptional energy efficiency, so you can concentrate on shooting
without having to worry about battery life. The internal power circuit has been optimized
and the camera employs key components that minimize energy consumption, such as
EXPEED 5. The EN-EL18a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery enables shooting up to approx.
3780 shots per charge in single-frame release mode (Based on CIPA Standards), or
approx. 8160 shots in the professional-oriented continuous-release mode (Under test
conditions established by Nikon). It also allows filming for approx. 110 min. (CIPA
Standards). As an alternative to the single EN-EL18a, you can use an optional EH-6b AC
Adapter (with EP-6 Power Connector) as a source.
Note: Battery durability varies depending on operating environment, including battery charge, shooting cycles and
menu settings.

Unified flash control enables Speedlight
operation and setting changes via computer
Fo r t h e f i r s t t i m e i n a N i ko n
Speedlight, the SB-5000 is
compatible with radio-controlled
communication. Since it is less
vulnerable to obstacles than a
conventional optical-controlled
system, and unaffected by the
brightness of the environment,
employing the SB-5000 for your
remote units in wireless multiple-flash photography
gives you greater freedom in your lighting (radiocontrolled Advanced Wireless Lighting*1). What’s more,
the Speedlight now comes equipped with a cooling
system, which prevents overheating of the flash panel
from consecutive firings. As a result, the SB-5000 can
fire consecutively for longer than conventional models,
without flash cool-down time between bursts, all while
featuring a powerful output at the guide number of
34.5 m/113 ft*2.
Benefit from faster, more convenient access to flash
settings from the camera as well as your computer
via unified flash control. Whether a single SB-5000 is
mounted onto your D5, or SB-5000 unit(s) are being
used remotely in radio-controlled Advanced Wireless
Lighting, flash settings can be accessed from the
camera or a computer connected to the camera using
Camera Control Pro 2 software*. Any setting changes
made from either the camera, computer or the SB-5000
itself will be shared among the devices. Also, you can
store flash settings on memory cards using the camera’s
“Save/load settings” menu and share them with
multiple D5 cameras.

Nikon Creative Lighting System
Radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting × Unified flash control
Radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting
for endless flash shooting possibilities
For the left-page photo, half of the lights at the venue were turned
off to dramatically illuminate the subject by Speedlights. Via radio
control, the photographer fired two groups of Speedlights — three
units placed on the left side of the picture and two on the right.
Although the units were approx. 30 m/98 ft away from the camera,
the firings were accurate during continuous shooting and effectively
captured the subject leaping into the air.
A radio-controlled system
enables wireless multiple
flash photography when
conventional optical
control is difficult due to
obstacles, long distances
or bright sunlight. With Newly incorporated “Flash
Info” screen
the optional WR-R10
Wireless Remote Controller*1 attached, the D5 can
handle remote flash units* 2 via radio-controlled
communication (communication distance is up to
approx. 30 m/98 ft*3). Up to 18 remote units*4 can be
managed this way, so you can expect more flexibility
in highly advanced lighting. With the interactive
communication between the camera and flash units,
you can conveniently check each remote unit’s
conditions on the D5 monitor in your hands. It is also
possible to perform Advanced Wireless Lighting using
both radio-controlled and optical-controlled units (up
to three groups) by simply attaching a conventional,
optical-control Nikon Speedlight (as a master or
commander unit)*5 and a WR-R10 (as a commander)
onto your D5.
Auto ISO control options
help attain exposures you need
When using auto ISO control during flash
photography, you can select the target for correct
exposure as “Subject and background” or “Subject
only” in the custom menu. In the former option, the
camera automatically controls the sensitivity to render
both the main subject and background in a more
appropriate exposure. This helps when you want to
render a night landscape brightly as a background.
In the latter option, the camera calculates to obtain
an optimal exposure of the main subject alone by
altering the sensitivity when the flash output is too
high or low. Take advantage of
both options and explore
your creativity in how you
render the background.
You can select a maximum
sensitivity for flash shooting,
independently of the one used for
non-flash shooting (from ISO 200
to Hi 5). The maximum sensitivity
can be set low when using a flash to
add volume of light.

found in sports and wildlife photography. These lenses also feature
superior AF tracking capabilities and stable AE control through their
electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism.
AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR
With a lightweight body thanks to fluorite lens elements and a
powerful VR effect of up to 4.5 stops*1, 2, this lens enables exceptional
super-telephoto shooting. The supplied teleconverter, in a dedicated
design using ED glass elements, extends the focal length to 1000 mm
while maintaining the same high optical performance. Combined with
the D5, this lens and teleconverter allow smooth AF shooting using a
total of 37 focus points, which include 25 cross sensors.
*1 Based on CIPA Standards. The value is achieved when attached to a full-frame
(35mm-format image sensor) D-SLR with zoom set at the maximum telephoto
position in NORMAL VR mode.
*2 The VR effect is up to 4.0 stops when AF-S TELECONVERTER TC800-1.25E ED
is attached.
Camera Control Pro 2
Remote control software
Camera Control Pro 2 allows you to control nearly
all the Nikon D-SLR functions from a computer
connected via USB (wired LAN also available with
the D5). This includes activating AF, changing shutter
speeds and apertures, fine-tuning white balance,
live view shooting, movie recording and more. The
software newly supports Windows 64-bit (native). In
combination with the optional WT-6/A/B/C Wireless
Transmitter, it allows remote shooting and image
transfer to a computer via wireless LAN. Collaborating
with the supplied ViewNX-i software, you can expect
to smoothly transfer, store and view your pictures. The
software greatly helps in remote shooting with the
D5 and SB-5000 Speedlights, whether in the studio
or outdoors, as it is compatible with unified flash
control*, which lets you share flash setting changes
between flash units, camera and computer.
Capture NX-D (free download)
RAW image processing
Try Capture NX-D for the best processing of NEF/
NRW images — Nikon’s RAW format — without
losing any of the extremely rich data. You can
fine-tune images by fully taking advantage of
Picture Controls, as well as adjusting exposure
compensation, white balance and tones. Changes
made to Picture Controls can be saved and applied
to other pictures on Capture NX-D. The software
now incorporates an auto retouch brush that lets
you easily remove dust spots on pictures. Capture
NX-D also offers a wide range of other useful
functions to help you: adjust the overall brightness,
contrast and hue; enable and disable noise
reduction; make camera and lens corrections; utilize
LCH editing, straightening and unsharpen mask;
as well as adjustment levels and tone curves. The
software can also handle JPEG and TIFF files.
* Version update required for Camera Control Pro 2 (Ver. 2.23.0 or later).
