BH #NID500 • MFR #1559
Nikon D500 DSLR Camera (Body Only)
Key Features
  • 20.9MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor
  • EXPEED 5 Image Processor
  • 3.2" 2539k-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • 4K UHD Video Recording at 30 fps
As the flagship model within Nikon's DX-format DSLR line, the D500 is characterized 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 characterized 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.

Atmos Nina blade
Asked by: Michael R.
Hi Michael, I think you mean Atmos Ninja Blade , right? You might want to read the B & H reviews on the 5 model.<a href= target= _blank ></a>Should be no problem on a D500, but I rarely like to use anything other than my dedicated video cams to do video. I won't be using my D500 for video, at least for now. Too many accessories needed to make it comfortable to work with in the field, especially compared to even a good prosumer 4K dedicated unit. Your mileage may vary, of course and you will need to weigh what you have, what you need (narrow DOF, lots of lens choices, etc.?) and the cost/benefit for you and your expected visual outcomes. Good Luck.

Does the lack of image stabilization make a difference with wildlife/action photos?
Asked by: chauna
VR is in the lens, not the camera. This is among the best cameras you can buy for wildlife.
