The flagship DSLR is selected as the majority’s favourite to be a recipient of Japan’s Camera Grand Prix 2016

SINGAPORE – Nikon’s FX-format flagship DSLR, the D5 is the proud recipient of the Camera GP (Grand Prix) 2016 Readers Award as announced today by Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd.

Honoured by recognition from the esteemed Camera Journal Press Club, Japan, the D5 is selected as a winner through a voting process by camera users. Out of the nine times the Readers Award has been presented, Nikon DSLR cameras have been the recipients of the award a total of seven times, proving that Nikon cameras are extremely popular with, and appreciated by, a great number of camera users.

Earlier this year, the D5 was also the recipient of the TIPA Awards 2016 Best DSLR Professional/Action awards, sponsored by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).

A selection of comments from the users for the selection of the Nikon D5:

• The D5 exhibits the absolute performance and presence of a flagship model. I am especially impressed with its unparalleled performance at high sensitivities, which greatly expands the possibilities for imaging expression
• I really like the fact that it is a still camera that offers a level of advancement never before seen with all major functions, including AF, AE, and high-sensitivity characteristics, and that it clearly expresses the direction cameras and technology will take in the future
• With features such as support for standard sensitivities as high as ISO 102400, advanced AF, and a touch screen monitor, this model seems indicative of what we can expect of flagship models in the future. In addition, the availability of two versions of the camera, one supporting XQD cards and one CompactFlash cards clearly shows that Nikon took both existing users and new users into consideration with development
• The excellence of this camera is something of which Japan can be extremely proud of
