Are you planning on picking up some of that snazzy new Nikon equipment? I may be a Canon guy, but even I was longingly browsing the Nikon collection today, as Nikon has come out firing on all fronts, giving us some remarkable cameras and accessories. If you're upgrading or purchasing for the first time, here's where to go.
The D5 is a no-compromise camera. With a significantly upgraded AF system, deep buffer, unheard of ISO capabilities, and features any professional would appreciate, this camera is sure not to disappoint. It will come in two variants, one with dual XQD card slots and one with dual CF card slots. Get them here:
The D500 is, in many ways, a miniature D5. The DX format camera features dual XQD and SD card slots, 4K video, the D5's autofocus system, 10 fps shooting with a 79-shot raw buffer, and ISO capabilities that are unprecedented for APS-C format cameras. Get it here:
Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight
Nikon's new flagship speedlight is its first with RF capabilities. Featuring a 98-foot range, a guide number of 113 ft. at ISO 100 and 35mm, and an advanced cooling system to enable longer and more frequent usage, it's sure to be a go-to for many portrait, event, and wedding photographers.
Nikon WT-6 and WT-7 Wireless Transmitters
Featuring file transfer speeds of up to 130 mbps via 802.11ac, a range of approximately 656 ft., and wireless camera controls, the WT-6 and WT-7 transmitters will be highly useful for sports photographers and photojournalists, as well as anyone else who prefers wireless transfers and control.
