Nikon Celebrates 100 Years of Following the Light

As the flagship model within Nikon's DX-format DSLR line, the D500 is characterised by its robust physical construction, apt imaging capabilities, and of course, a more compact, sleek form factor than its FX brethren. Revolving around a 20.9MP CMOS sensor and EXPEED 5 image processor, this camera appeals to both still and video shooters with its fast 10 fps continuous shooting rate and 4K UHD video recording abilities. The sensor and processor also combine to avail a native sensitivity range up to ISO 51200, which can be further expanded to ISO 1640000 for working in dark and difficult lighting conditions. Benefitting the fast shooting performance, the D500 is also characterised by its expansive Multi-CAM 20K 153-point AF system, which features 99 cross-type points for fast performance and accurate subject tracking capabilities. While sleek in stature, the D500 is by no means slim on functionality and versatility.

Besides the imaging assets, this advanced DSLR also features an impressive handling design that incorporates a 3.2", 2.36m-dot, tilting LCD touchscreen, which affords a comfortable means for working from high and low angles. An updated version of SnapBridge is also featured, which provides Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC, as well as Bluetooth Low Energy technology for linking your mobile device for wireless image sharing. In addition to the convenience features, the D500 is housed within a durable magnesium alloy chassis that is both dust- and weather-sealed for working in inclement conditions and harsh environments.

 

20.9MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor and EXPEED 5 Image Processor

The 20.9MP DX-format CMOS sensor enables recording high-resolution still imagery and 4K UHD or full HD 1080p video with the utmost clarity, low noise, and smooth color gradations. Additionally, the sensor pairs with the advanced EXPEED 5 image processor to provide native sensitivity to ISO 51,200, as well as expanded to 1,640,000 for shooting in even dimmer lighting conditions.

The sensor and processor combination also enables a continuous high shooting rate of 10 fps at full resolution, continuous low of 1- 9 fps, and a quiet-continuous of 3 fps. Enhanced buffer capacity allows you to record up to 200 sequential 14-bit NEF, lossless compressed or 79 14-bit uncompressed files.

 

4K UHD & Full HD 1080p Video Recording

The EXPEED 5 processing power extends beyond still imaging performance to benefit 4K UHD video recording in multiple frame rates of 30/25/24p fps and full HD 1080p of 60/50/30/25/24p fps. During recording, fully manual control over shutter speed and ISO settings is possible along with the ability to utilize Auto ISO adjustment in manual mode with a top sensitivity of ISO 51,200. Zebra stripe highlighting can be applied to aid in controlling overexposure during recording too, along with in-camera Picture Control profiles, custom tone curves, and a flat profile to benefit color-grading applications. Recording to an optional external recorder is possible in order to gain uncompressed, 4:2:2, 8-bit output through the HDMI port, and when recording externally, use of the camera's LCD monitor for simultaneous live view monitoring is possible.

In regard to audio recording, an in-camera stereo microphone can be used, or alternatively, an input is available for utilizing an optional external stereo microphone. Sound levels can be adjusted across many levels prior to and during recording, along with the ability to monitor audio via the headphone output.

 

Advanced Multi-CAM 20K Autofocus System

Supporting the imaging capabilities of the D500 is an autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, fine-tuning, and 153 focus points, including 99 cross-type sensors and 15 sensors that support f/8, of which 55 (35 cross-type) sensors, and 9 f/8 sensors are available for selection. AF modes include Single-Point, Dynamic Area 25, 72, and 153 AF points, Group Area AF, 3D-Tracking, and Auto Area AF.

The f/8 sensors are of great benefit when using telephoto lenses, teleconverters, and filters. 3D Tracking, a part of the intelligent Scene Recognition System, also works to benefit maintained focusing on moving subjects for greater accuracy when shooting at high continuous shooting speeds. Furthermore, Single-point AF, Dynamic-area AF, 3D-tracking, and Auto-area AF modes are also available. And, when working in either horizontal or vertical shooting orientations, you can individually select your focus point and AF area settings to best fit the frame.

 

Scene Recognition System and Exposure Metering

The intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering utilizes a 180k-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors, to quickly determine an accurate exposure and white balance setting to best render the scene at hand. The information gathered is also checked against onboard reference images to ensure consistency from image to image in regard to exposure, white balance, i-TTL flash settings, and subject-tracking AF performance.

 

Camera Design Features

  • A large 3.2", 2,359k-dot, LCD monitor is incorporated into the D500's design and features an RGBW touch screen with tilting for overhead and low angle shots.
  • A bright pentaprism optical viewfinder offers 100% frame coverage and incorporates an organic EL display system to provide shooting information for seamless adjustment over camera settings without removing your eye from the viewfinder. Additionally, the optical glass features enhanced coatings for increased brightness, contrast, and color neutrality for more lifelike viewing.
  • Use the hot shoe and wireless plus synch connector for external flash with Auto, On, Off, Red-Eye, Slow Synch, and Rear Curtain modes. Flash X Synch Speed is 1/250 sec. Dual card slots, one XQD and the other SD are available to extend file saving capabilities by permitting either overflow recording or in-camera file duplicating. Additionally, optional HDMI-connected external recorders are supported for recording uncompressed video and time lapse sequences.
  • Two Fn buttons, one front facing and the other rear facing, may be assigned for checking depth-of-field or used for other shooting controls.
  • The included EN-EL15 rechargeable lithium-ion battery and MH-25A Battery Charger supply the necessary power.

 

SnapBridge Wi-Fi Connectivity

Supporting a wealth of sharing and tagging possibilities, the D500 features built-in SnapBridge Wi-Fi connectivity to enable seamless transfer of imagery as well as remote shooting capabilities. BLE, Bluetooth Low Energy technology, enables communication between the camera and a smart device. Additionally, the mobile device can remotely trigger the shutter and display a live view image from the camera to enable working from a distance. NFC (Near Field Communication) is also supported to provide a quick and simple tap-to-connect method for linking your mobile devices with the camera.

For faster wireless performance, the D500 is also compatible with the optional WT-7A Wireless Transmitter enabling transmission of image files via FTP server or computer at speeds of up to 866.7 Mbps.
