Matt Granger is attending CES 2016 (CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Held in Las Vegas every year, it has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for more than 40 years—the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.) and made this presentation video.

The D5 body looks amazing, it is a PRO body, don’t think I will ever own one but I have to appreciate the beauty of the design and its rugged looks. Did I mention I am a Canon shooter?
