Shot exclusively on the new Nikon D5 in 4K ultra-high definition video. INSPIRED, a film by Nikon Ambassador Corey Rich, explores what drives today’s most diverse and interesting professional photographers and filmmakers, and captures the commitment it takes to tell truly meaningful stories. Cameras like the D5 can change the game because the photographer is one step ahead and their new AF system means it’s very unlikely a shot Will get missed or taken out of focus. This applies across action sports including cycling. The 153 focus points means the camera will track fast erratic movement at 12 frames per second. In other words, expect to see better than ever images from the cobbles and downhill runs. Read more about the D5 in this Digital Photo Pro story I contributed too from the event. Corey was quite moved speaking of the movie and so was the audience.
Besides a new flagship D5, Nikon entering the action market with a 360 camera is the most relevant CES news (so far) for cyclists. I attended the press event, contributed to this DPP review, and will share more after the show. Sony didn’t offer many details, but Corey Rich their Ambasador said, “Because the camera sees in a sphere, the photographer is not behind the lens, but in the sphere with it.
Named Keymission360 for the mission we take in life that require an immersive view

You do something for so long, it becomes less than a novelty and a regular occurrence. Also forget how many other cyclists may not know about it. This happens with roadie traditions, even changing a flat tire, and how to travel with bikes. This short Vine about S and S couplings shows a favorite part of vacation – beginning and end – and my favorite tool. The coupling splits the bike in two halves, so you can pack it in a suitcase.
