Review: Nikon D500

Nikon D500

The Nikon D500 – Autofocus System

The Nikon D500, a 21MP APS-C DSLR has the potential of shooting at around 10 frames per second and comprises of an autofocus system which comes from the one in the D5. It means that it is precisely the type of high end DX setup body which seems to become wiped out with the D300S.

Since the launch of the D300S of six and a half years, the camera market has progressed considerably though the D500 seems to have reclaimed the position as one of the distinguished APS-C camera in the market.

Much of the enhanced proficiency of the camera focuses around sports and high speed shooting together with substantial renovations to the shooting rate as well as autofocus system. However, there are some main advancement to the viewfinder, video skills and the connectivity choices that seem to extend its utility further than one particular niche. The following are the key features:

  • 20.7 MP APS-C – DX format sensor 
  • 153 point AF module with 99 cross type points 
  • AF point joystick • 180,000 pixel RGB sensor for metering and subject recognition 
  • 10 fps shooting up to 200 shots 
  • 4K (UHD) video from 1.5x crop of sensor • 100% coverage viewfinder with 1.0x magnification 
  • 2.36M-dot tilting touchscreen display 
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity with NFC for setup 
  • Mic and headphone sockets 
  • USB 3.0 connector 
  • For working under artificial lighting, an anti-flicker option

Capability of Focusing & Shooting Quickly

Most of the competency of D500 is built on the capability of focusing and shooting very quickly and its 153 point AF module provides a near full width coverage which is connected to a 180,000 pixel RGB metering sensor to enhance further its AF tracking skills.

The AF system of D500 like the D5 now provides two parameters for fine tuning the autofocus tracking performance, enabling the user to identifythe kind of subject movement as well as the precise response to another object obstructing the targeted subject.

The D500 has a 3.2 inch 2,359,000 dot screen which is touch sensitive. Prevailing Nikon enables you to only specify duration, directing Nikon is attempting to extend the range of shooting condition for which the AF system could be improved.

Existence of SnapBridge Technology

Another feature which differentiates the D500 from the D5 is the existence of the SnapBridge technology of Nikon that enables the camera to always remain connected to a smart device, over a low-power Bluetooth connection or through Wi-Fi.

This could mean that after the main connection has been done, images can be transmitted automatically to the phone whenever it is shot and they can be ready to be shared through the internet when you tend to pick up your phone.

 As suitable as a camera, it is intended for professionals and serious supporters, wherein the D500 tends to have two card slots, one which accepts SD type media and the other is for the faster XQD cards. Though they have been around for a long time, the XQD cards are not conventional yet with most of the cameras only accepting SD-type media but this could be changed.
