The Nikon D5 professional DSLR has been the clear star (in cameras) of this year’s CES 2016 show in Las Vegas.

Ask just about any professional photographer what the top cameras are for capturing sports, photojournalism or wildlife and they’ll likely tell you the Nikon D5, Canon 1D X Mark II or the Sony A9.

Our previous video (see Camera Shutter Sounds Are Not All The Same And This Video Proves It) revealed that every camera make and model is capable of producing its own variety of unique sounds. This knowledge inspired photographer Benjamin Von Wong and Andrew Kesler—along with a few creative assistants—to experiment with and transform 14 Nikon cameras (provided by Nikon Professional Services Canada) into musical instruments and use them to create an amazing symphony of shutter and camera sounds.

We gave Canon’s flagship EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR our very first Shutterbug Top Clicks award for a very good reason. It’s an incredible photographic tool. Photographer David Dupuy decided to put it to the test himself for Shutterbug during a recent assignment in exotic Bali, Indonesia.

No, this is not for photographers who are faint of heart. And yes, you’ll probably have very mixed feelings (to say the least) about what videographer and YouTube personality Casey Neistat decides to do to his malfunctioning Canon DSLR.
