The Nikon D5 is the first Nikon DSLR capable of capturing 4K UHD video (3840×2160 at 30p), letting users create stunning ultra-high definition video with beautiful clarity and color. Multimedia content creators can also use the D5 to create 4K time-lapse videos in-camera using the Time-lapse Movie function, and can create 8-megapixel still images from frame grabs. A great addition to any production environment, the D5 includes all of the most popular pro-level features of the Nikon D5, including Full HD 1080p video at a variety of frame rates, uncompressed HDMI out, simultaneous live view and headphone/microphone connections.

Well, it is good for us to take high quality images and record vivid 4K and Full HD videos. The Nikon D5 cam encodes 4K footage with H.264 codec and save the files in MOV container format. However, I usually saw the camcorder users encounter importing issues when attempting to edit Nikon 4K MOV footage with Avid Media Composer like import it slowly, and couldn’t edit videos smoothly. The H.264 codec is a final delivery codec; it is not one you want to use for editing in Avid.
