Nikon made waves (and headlines) yesterday as Team Yellow announced a new lineup of cameras and products to make us all drool. Starting the new year off with a bang, Nikon officially announced at CES their previously leaked D5, a new SB-5000 Speedlight, the Keymission 360 – a 4k action cam that can capture 360-degree photos and video – and the completely unexpected Nikon D500. (Canon, by contrast, announced a few new Powershot cameras yesterday…wah, wah, wah…).
Thanks to the rumor mills and leaked images, we all knew the Nikon D5 was on its way. Now that it’s been officially announced, we can see the new flagship DSLR in action in a series of Nikon released videos. In the next few weeks, I’m anticipating a lot more videos coming from lucky photographers who got early access to the new camera and the other newly announced products as well. Below are a few of the videos on the D5 to hopefully whet your appetite until we can get our hands on a copy to do a full review.
In case you were holed up with no access to the outside world for the last few weeks, here are some of the impressive highlights of the D5.
