“We had to develop a stable camera, being also able to rise and fall the front at the same time”, ALPA-Co-Owner André Oldani remembers. “All the manipulations, including stitching and shifting, had to be possible without taking the camera off the tripod.”… “It was probably the first camera with this wide but still highly precise range of settings”, Oldani says. “And weight was no real issue back then. But now we have to follow the general trends toward smaller and lighter cameras.”

As most know Nikon recently released the D5, and like most of you I am just as curious to get this body in my hands. If you know anything about my career you may know I started off with the NIKON D2Xs body and not to recently upgraded to the D4… at this time I have no interest in upgrading again but still would love to see what NIKON has up its sleeve when it comes to the D5. here are some videos if your curious like myself.
