Tested the Nikon D5 shooting event: The Citadel’s Recognition Day for the Class of 2019

Today I was covering The Citadel’s Recognition Day for the class of 2019. I really love the Nikon D5 for covering events.

I was just blown away with the quality of higher ISOs for just simple event photography. The colors look great at ISO 16000 in this photo. And the noise is very acceptable for this type of photography.

I was really enjoying shooting with ISO 32000 for people just sitting around a table.

However the one thing I was really enjoying was shooting at 1/4000 and really nailing the razor sharp photos due to eliminating the camera movement.

I was also enjoying the dynamic range of the files as well.

The files are a big improvement over the Nikon D4. The Nikon D5 a 20 megapixel camera and the Nikon D4 is a 16 megapixel camera.

Hopefully these are just a taste of what the camera does. I hope to continue to understand more of it’s capabilities and how they can help me do things not possible before with the Nikon D4.
