Earlier this year we shared a rumor that said Nikon’s next flagship DSLR, the D5, will have 173 autofocus points, a 20-megapixel sensor and a maximum ISO of over one million – the first camera to feature a seven-figure maximum ISO.
Today, a few of those rumored specs have been all but confirmed by Nikon Rumors.
According to a new report, the D5 will offer a native high ISO of 102,400, a massive two stop increase over the current D4 and D4s. If true, this would come as a change in pace, considering Nikon’s D4 and D4s only increased their native ISO by one stop.
This particular detail neither confirm nor denies the potential for a one million ISO in expandable modes, but it certainly keeps it within the realm of possibility.
Additionally, Nikon Rumors says it’s ‘confident’ that the D5 will feature a brand new focusing module that offers more coverage and 153 autofocus points – 20 less than originally rumored, but still a massive amount.
Details such as 4K video, a 20-megapixel FX sensor and 15fps shooting are yet to be confirmed, but it seems most of the rumored specs are falling into place.
The D5 is said to be announced in Early 2016, meaning one way or another, we don’t have long until we find out for sure.
