Nikon D500 Body AF-S DX 16-80 Kit Digital Camera
(as of Oct 02,2021 20:40:07 UTC – Details)
From the manufacturer
As the smaller sibling to the D5, Nikon’s FX-format flagship, the D500 offers phenomenal power and precision. Nikon’s next-generation 153-point AF system provides wide coverage. New image and metering sensors deliver phenomenally accurate subject recognition and detail. You can shoot at up to 10 fps and the high-performance buffer allows up to 200 NEF (RAW) images to be captured during one high-speed burst. Combined, this means you can shoot at maximum image quality for 20 seconds. And for moviemakers who go to extremes, D-Movie enables high-definition 4K/UHD movies of up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds long to be recorded in-camera.

Flagship AF Performance: Extreme Precision
Equipped with the same AF system as the D5, Nikon’s FX-format flagship, the D500 lets you focus with precision, even in near darkness. With 153 focus points and 99 cross-type sensors, this phenomenal AF system offers unprecedented coverage, covering almost the full width of the viewfinder frame. AF sensitivity down to -4 EV at the central point and -3 EV (ISO 100, 20 degree Celsius/68 degree Fahrenheit) for all other points, enables low-light performance. Small subjects moving at high speed can be tracked with a level of precision and subjects at the edge of the frame are easily detected. The system is configurable for 153-point, 72-point and 25-point coverage settings in Continuous AF mode. All 153 focus points are compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses with an open aperture of f/5.6 or faster and 15 central focus points work with an effective aperture of f/8.
Go further: Image-defining speed
The D500’s supercharged performance easily captures decisive moments. You can shoot at up to 10 fps with AE/AF tracking or with mirror up. AF tracking and viewfinder visibility are vastly improved when shooting sports or any scene in which subjects tend to change direction suddenly. Thanks to a AF ASIC unit, maximum computing power is allocated to AF at all times. Faster sequential shutter and mirror mechanisms significantly reduce viewfinder blackout during high-speed bursts. The camera’s high-performance buffer allows up to 200 NEF (RAW) or large JPEG images to be captured during one burst. Two card slots (one for XQD cards and one for SD UHS II cards), easily handle the camera’s shooting speeds and ensure the buffer is instantly cleared for the next burst. The USB 3.0 port enables high-speed transfer of large amounts of data and the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi capability allows for rapid wireless image transfer. For those looking for an even faster transfer solution, the D500 is also compatible with the optional WT-7A, which enables transmission of files to an FTP server or computer at speeds of up to 866.7 Mbps.
Nail the Shot: Powerful metering and image sensors
Whether you’re capturing a cheetah on the run or the pivotal moment in the X Games, the D500 will get you the shot. And not just any shot. The 20.9 MP DX-format CMOS image sensor and 180K-pixel RGB metering sensor deliver phenomenally accurate subject recognition and image detail with rich tonal gradations. The D500 also boasts a highly responsive 8.0 cm (3.2 inch), 2359k-dot tilting LCD touchscreen monitor, which frees you to shoot from high or low angles. You can easily scroll through and select key images and input credit, location, network, IPTC and copyright information on the spot. Shoot in Live View and you can use touch operation to set the focus point, release the shutter and acquire preset Spot White Balance data, based on the selected area within the frame. For even greater control, Picture Control 2.0 makes it easy to define parameters whether you’re shooting stills or video. Ease post-production with the Flat pre-setting for maximum dynamic range; fine-adjust detail with Clarity.
Not afraid of the dark: Get the shots others can’t even see
The D500 isn’t intimidated by difficult light conditions. Thanks to its wide ISO range, this camera opens up a world of shooting opportunities in dark situations and handles highlights incredibly well. Nikon’s Expeed 5 processing engine ensures unprecedentedly high image quality across the standard ISO range of 100 to 51200. Fine noise is dramatically reduced and even cropped images shot at high ISO values retain their quality. You can also extend the ISO range down to the equivalent of ISO 50 at the Lo 1 setting or up to a ISO 1640000 equivalent, at the Hi 5 setting. Combined with the camera’s AF system, which performs in near darkness (-4 EV at the central point), the Hi 5 setting lets you shoot in situations you might not have attempted before. These high ISO counts, which enable colour images to be captured without a flash, are also suitable for use in surveillance and security applications.
Cinematic 4K/UHD Performance
As the first Nikon DX-format DSLR to record high-definition 4K/UHD movies in-camera, the D500 offers a whole new level of moviemaking flexibility. 4K/UHD movies (3840×2160 pixels) up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds long can be recorded at 30p/25p/24p in dot-by-dot native pixel crop, which ensures the highest image quality. Full HD (1080p) video can be recorded at frame rates up to 50p/60p in multiple sensor crop formats, including native Full HD pixel crop. Nikon’s electronic Vibration Reduction dramatically reduces the effects of camera shake when shooting Full HD movies handheld. When filming in M mode, sensitivity for all video resolutions and crop modes can be set from ISO 100 all the way up to Hi 5. Auto ISO allows ISO 200 up to Hi 5 and lets you set the maximum ISO values you want to work with. The camera offers clean HDMI out: even 4K/UHD movies can be recorded to the memory card or output uncompressed to HDMI with 8-bit 4:2:2 YCbCr. HDMI output is available for all movie resolutions during remote shooting. Other features include a built-in interval timer and 4K/UHD quality time-lapse function.
