Cheap alternatives for Nikon D5

Design

1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Nikon D5
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D5
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
3.viewfinder coverage

100%

With 100% coverage, you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage, you may have to crop your photos afterward to get them looking perfect.
4.Has a hot shoe
Nikon D5
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
5.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D5
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Nikon D5
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

Optics

1.focus points

153

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
2.sensor size

35.9 x 23.9mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.has AF tracking
Nikon D5
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
4.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Nikon D5
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
5.maximum light sensitivity

102400 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
6.megapixels (main camera)

20.8MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D5
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Nikon D5
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Nikon D5
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Nikon D5
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Nikon D5
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Nikon D5
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Nikon D5
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

Battery

1.has a removable battery
Nikon D5
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
2.has a rechargeable battery
Nikon D5
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
3.has a battery level indicator
Nikon D5
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.

Features

1.has an external memory slot
Nikon D5
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Nikon D5
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
3.Has a remote control
Nikon D5
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
4.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Nikon D5
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
5.has a HDMI output
Nikon D5
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
6.has an accelerometer
Nikon D5
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.
