In "Urban Movement," Beijing-based photographer/filmmaker Stefen Chow and director Montague Fendt spends a few days documenting the daily workout routines of young men and women living in the Chinese capital. The resulting film is a testament to the capabilities of the Nikon D5, but also to the quietly inspirational lives of its stars: ordinary people who dedicate themselves to sport for their own fulfillment, rather than for competitions, fame or glory.
A dedicated Nikon shooter, Chow worked with a skeleton crew, carrying just the D5 and minimal equipment. Shot purely with available light, "Urban Movement" puts the camera’s performance to the test in a variety of lighting situations. "We ended up with a beautiful little film," says Chow and Fendt. "The Nikon D5 was light, versatile and compact, great for shooting this sort of run-and-gun project."
Sports Photographer Joel Marklund was asked to test the Nikon D5. Hear his thoughts on testing out the camera’s speed, accuracy, and reliability on a race circuit in southern Spain.
With Nikon’s incredible next-generation 153-point AF system and a new buffer which allows up to 200 NEF (RAW) images to be captured during one high-speed burst, the D5 is a great addition to any sports photographer’s kit. New image and metering sensors deliver phenomenally accurate subject recognition and image detail, and the highest expanded sensitivity in Nikon’s history frees you to shoot from bright sunlight to astronomical twilight.
In this video, Nikon Canada’s Mark Cruz provides an overview of Nikon’s newest flagship FX-format camera, the D5, with a focus on the still photography improvements.
The D5 features a newly designed 20.8 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, new 153-point AF system, 4K UHD video capture and EXPEED 5 image processing to give users the best balance of performance, precision and low-light ability.
With an unprecedented native ISO range from 100 to 102,400, the D5’s EXPEED 5 engine dramatically enhances the camera’s performance, delivers low noise, high speed image processing, and offers additional processing power that’s needed for 4K UHD video.
A new 3.2-inch 2359K dot XGA LCD adds touchscreen functionality, so users can easily pinch, zoom, swipe and scrub in playback, and enter text faster than before.
