Nikon D500 DSLR Camera features:
Sensor and image processor features:
20.9 Megapixel DX CMOS Sensor
The Nikon D500 features a newly developed high sensitivity DX crop CMOS sensor featuring a high resolution of 20.9 megapixels.
High light-sensitivity range of ISO 50 – 1,640,000
The D500's sensor features a large native light sensitivity range of ISO 100 - 51,200, and a simply amazing extended ISO range of 50-1,640,00. The high light sensitivity enables the camera to capture imagery in extreme low light conditions, while the low ISO 50 enables shooting at larger apertures or slower shutter speeds without using neutral density filters.
14-bit lossless RAW file recording
By capturing RAW files in 14-bit, users will be able to further push post processing for even more accurate colours, wider dynamic range and improve noise reduction.
EXPEED 5 image-processing engine
Nikon's new EXPEED 5 engine features faster processors, more memory and improved algorithms to produce colour accurate images, reduce image noise, and enables large image buffers of up to 79 RAW files.
Autofocus and camera performance:
153-point AF system with 99 cross sensors
The D500 is fitted with the same AF system as the Nikon D5, the Multi-CAM 20K AF sensor module. The AF system fills the D500's frame from side to side, letting users flawlessly track and lock-onto subjects from the edges of the viewfinder.
Dedicated AF processor
The D500 is equipped with a dedicated AF processing engine, capable of rapid calculations. Between this engine and the sequence control microcomputer, several tasks are processed in parallel, speeding up autofocus calculations and control. The result is superior AF response, which assists photographers in scenes such as tracking. The AF engine also permits a new AF algorithm to be employed, which efficiently coordinates a range of operations, including advanced subject detection and detailed scene analysis. This enables precise AF tracking of moving subjects during approx. 10-fps continuous shooting.
180 000 pixel RGB sensor
The Nikon D500 features a 180 000 pixel RGB sensor which maintains high sensitivity while significantly increasing the pixel count. By having more pixels the camera can now detect and focus/meter on even smaller subjects, and the increased sensitivity enables focusing/metering in dark environments
15 autofocus points for f/8 (teleconverter) setups
Fifteen focus points, including nine selectable points, are available for lens setups slower than f/5.6 and equal to or faster than f/8. This will enable autofocus when using a select lens and teleconverter combinations.
Built-in focus motor
A built in focus motor allows the D500 to focus with AF NIKKOR lenses, including type G, E, and D lenses.
Auto AF fine-tune
Auto AF fine-tune helps you to calibrate your lenses to your camera. The feature works by achieving focus in live view and then letting the camera automatically acquire the AF tuning value.
10-fps continuous shooting with full-time AF/AE up to 79 frames
The camera delivers stable high-speed continuous shooting at a frame rate of approximately 10 frames per second (10 fps) with full-time autofocus and autoexposure at any image quality or sensitivity, including Hi 5 (ISO 1,640,000) and 14-bit RAW, continuously for up to 79 frames.
Single XQD and SD memory card slots
The Nikon D500 features both XQD and SD memory card slots. The XQD slot enables use of one of the fastest portable storage solutions currently available, and the SD slot enables use of the most popular storage solution. By utilising XQD the D500 can read/write at speeds of up to 440MB/s and clear the buffer faster to so you can safely continue shooting.
Internal 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) video recording
The Nikon D500 is future proofed by incorporating Ultra HD 4K video recording*. 4K is the latest standard in video resolution and features 4 times more pixels than Full HD. The camera records 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) 30p/25p/24p videos internally for up to 29 minutes*, saving the data onto in-camera memory cards. ISO range stays unchanged to make ISO 1,640,000 available in 4K recording.
Full HD and HD is also available and can be recorded at up to 60 frames per second**.
* 4K is recorded at an 1.5X crop.
** Full HD and HD can be recorded without any cropping, or at a 1.3X crop.
Uncompressed 4K HDMI output
An uncompressed 4K frame-by-frame live feed can be transferred from the HDMI port to an external display or recorder while recording to internal memory.
3-axis electronic vibration reduction (VR) in Full HD and HD recording
An electronic 3-axis vibration reduction (VR) feature reduces small unwanted camera movements in the horizontal, vertical and rotational directions (centering on the lens) for smooth/fluid and professional video, and can be activated regardless of the lens being used.
The D500 captures Dot-by-dot meaning that information from every pixel on the image sensor is recorded to produce video with less in-camera processing, delivering detail-rich, high-resolution videos.
Flat picture control
Flat picture control records as much image information as possible to enable more control in post-production. With more control you can produce high-resolution videos that faithfully reflect your creative intentions in a relatively simple process.
Movie exposure smoothing
When shooting a scene with drastic exposure changes, the D500 will render everything with gradual transitions via a delicate auto exposure smoothing dedicated to movie recording. Even at high ISO settings, the camera reproduces the changes naturally while maintaining rich tonal gradation and details.
Power aperture control
Power aperture control allows you to continuously change aperture forbrightness and depth of field control during filming.
Record time lapse movies in-camera
Time-lapse movies can be easily made directly from the camera. This feature is compatible with any frame size/frame rate or movie quality, including 4K UHD/30p. What’s more, the exposure smoothing function is also available. This efficiently reduces unwanted flicker effects in a time-lapse movie where the brightness changes widely, such as at dawn or dusk, by automatically reducing the subtle exposure variance of each frame in A and other auto modes. The exposure smoothing function is also available in interval timer photography.
Comprehensive sound control
Internal or external microphone sensitivity levels can be adjusted in 20 increments while recording, and sound can be monitored with external headphones. The frequency response function also enables you to choose from a range of audio recording presets including wide, vocal and wind reduction.
The D500 has a new, dedicated movie-shooting menu. This comes in particularly handy when switching back and forth between still-photo shooting and movie recording, because you can select different settings like white balance and Picture Control in advance and maintain them throughout the shooting.
Body, operation and other features:
Tilting 3.2-inch 2,359k-dot LCD touch screen
The Nikon D500 incorporates a tilting 3.2-inch 2,359k-dot touch screen for greater control. The tilting function will enable shooting from low/high angles, while touch capability will enable quick image confirmation via rapid scrolling through thousands of pictures or getting pin-point accurate focus while zooming in live-view.
Optical viewfinder with 1.0X magnification and 100% coverage
The optical finder boasts the biggest magnification of any aps-c camera
The D500’s buttons illuminates light to enhance button visibility in low light.
Fn1 and Fn2 custom function buttons
The D500 incorporates two custom function buttons. The Fn1 function button is conveniently placed on the front of the body, while the Fn2 button is on the rear of the body. Both may be for assigned for custom functions such as checking depth of field, or changing remote flash options.
Rugged body with anti-dust and weather sealing
The body features a monocoque structure composed of magnesium alloy for the top and rear, while the front is reinforced with lightweight carbon fiber. The camera body is also sealed to ensure high resistance to dust and bad weather, letting you shoot with the utmost confidence, even in inclement conditions.
Long battery life
The D500 utilises Nikon's EN-EL15 rechargeable Li-ion battery, enabling it to shoot up to 1240 pictures per charge in single-frame release mode.
Wifi, Bluetooth, and NFC connectivity with SnapBridge functionality
Connecting devices and sharing your amazing photos are now easier than ever before. The D500’s SnapBridge functionality enables multiple built-in connectivity options so you can transfer your images to a compatible smart device using either Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, Near Field Communication (NFC), or Wi-Fi connectivity. For those looking for an even faster transfer solution, the D500 is also compatible with the optional WT-7A, enabling transmission of files to an FTP server or computer at speeds of up to 866.7 Mbps.
