Get Your First Look at the New Nikon D5 and D500 with Industry Expert Mason Resnick
Adorama Learning Center's digital imaging expert, Mason Resnick, is one of the first to review the new Nikon D5, D500 and accessories announced at CES 2016. An excerpt from the article detailing Mason's 'first look' at the new Nikon DSLRs reads, "We'll say it again: The new FX CMOS sensor, combined with the new EXPEED 5 image processing engine, will deliver the highest non-boosted top ISO in Nikon history. Until now, you could only reach ISO 102,400 if you boosted the sensitivity, but in this case, it's native. Nikon says the broad dynamic range is greater than ever and if you do want to go beyond human vision, you can boost to H5 for the aforementioned, mind-boggling, astrophotography-friendly ISO 3,280,000."
