Storing high-quality images and footages will not be a problem for this DSLR because it has two CF card slots. For expanded functionality, the Nikon D5 works with the SB-5000 Speedlight and WT-6A Wireless Transmitter.

Likewise, its communications system is 1.5 times faster than the D4S. This translates into the transmission of more images in a shorter time.
