The Nikon F5 is a pro-level film SLR that was released in 1996. It features a rain and dust resistant metal body that is perfect for photojournalism, sports, and action photography. The 8 fps burst rate make is a big asset when shooting action shots. The autofocus is quick and accurate, making it easy to shoot with this camera quickly.
The novel 1005 segment color sensitive matrix meter is the most advanced and intelligent film camera light meter ever produced (along with the Nikon F6 which shares the same meter technology).
The F5 also features an integral vertical grip with a second shutter button for easy portrait shooting in the studio or out in the field.
Three built-in exposure meters: 3D Color Matrix Metering, Center-Weighted metering and Spot metering. Autofocus modes: Single-Servo AF with Focus-Priority at motor speeds up to 8 frames per second. Dimensions: 6.2 x 5.9 x 3.1 in.
