About this item

The Nikon F5 SLR Camera is arguably the most advanced SLR Camera available today. A record-setting 8 fps with full autofocus operation on is 60% faster than any other currently available system; dynamic autofocus keeps moving subjects sharp. A five-sensor AF detection system captures off-center subjects, even when the camera is held vertically. The F5's high-level AF performance enhances the quality one can achieve using Nikon's extensive range of high-quality optics.

The light meter (which is the first in-camera meter with RGB color sensitivity) divides the frame into 1005 discrete units, then analyzes the light and color patterns and compares them against thousands of images that have been programmed into the camera's on-board memory. Users can adjust the size of the center-weighted metering area from 8mm to 20mm for more accurate small-area metering; even more custom control is available via software and a connection to a Mac or PC.

Exposure control is controlled further via EV compensation, AF and AE lock controls, four exposure control systems, full manual control and automatic balanced fill flash that can be set in increments. A wide array of backs, viewfinders and other accessories make this the most advanced slr camera in the Nikon Camera system.
