The Nikon D500 DSLR is Nikon's strongest DX sensored body to date. It features a 20.9 MP DX cropped sensor with a native ISO sensitivity up to 51200, though it's expandable to 1,640,000 for crazy low-light conditions. The sensor is paired with Nikon's newest EXPEED 5 image sensor which helps it achieve a crazy-fast-for-a-$2000-crop-body 10 fps continuous shooting before the buffer fills at 200 full raw images. A gnarly 153 point AF system has 99 cross-type points for super accurate focus and tracking. 7 different AF-area modes support a huge variety of shooting situations; we can definitely see this camera being a fantastic sports and wildlife camera. Built-in Wi-Fi ensures you can instagram your photos all proper like. This camera has 2 memory card slots, 1 XQD and 1 SD. Wireless flashes via radio trigger such as the new SB-5000 are supported directly from the D500.
Video shooters will love the 4K UHD video recording at 30, 25, & 24p and full HD up to 60p. Keep in mind though, that the 4K will crop the already cropped sensor by quite a bit. The 4K will crop by another 1.5x of the sensor that is already cropped by 1.5x. For example, if you have a 100mm lens on the D500, you are already at a 150mm full frame equivalent for the normal DX crop. When shooting 4K, that lens will now look like a 225mm lens, for a full frame equivalent of 2.25x your starting focal length. Confused? Call us and we can explain!
