Nikon D820 Rumored to Feature Same AF System as the D5

By on

More details about the upcoming Nikon D820 DSLR continues to leak on the web. According to recent rumors the D820 will feature the same AF system as the Nikon D5 camera.

As we mentioned earlier the high-megapixel count full-frame DSLR is quickly approaching its product launch event. It is claimed that the announcement should take place in Summer of 2017.

Nikon D5 uses the Multi-CAM 20K AF sensor module which makes it an extraordinary camera. The high-end DSLR autofocus perfectly for fast-moving subjects at 12 FPS burst speed. This AF system provides 153 AF points, but you only can select 55 of them. Now the rumor mill updates the D820 specs and adds the same AF system as the D5 to the features list.

As we are familiar with, the company will upgrade the full-frame sensor of the D820 with 46-megapixel resolution. The camera will come with a new and improved version of SnapBridge. Besides connectivity upgrades, the DSLR is expected to feature a tiltable LCD screen (probably with touchscreen) just like the D750 and D500.
