With the Canon 5D MKII all the rage, as well as the fervor mounting over the new RED cameras, it’s almost surprising that the new top of the line Nikon isn’t touting video as a prowess. This camera is no slouch by any means. It sports a full frame sensor and lots of Nikon love. Check out the camera, more images, and the press release on our sister site, ProPhoto Coallition.
