Overview
The Nikon D500 is a revolutionary DX-format DSLR camera It is sleek yet powerful in a rugged magnesium alloy body, and packs the technology of the D5 into a smaller and lighter unit. It uses a 20.9 megapixel sensor and as a result is the first Nikon DX-format DSLR camera to feature 4K UHD video, the camera recording at up to 30fps, plus having an interval timer and 4K quality time lapse mode.
The D500 uses Nikon's super-fast EXPEED 5 processor which allows a shooting speed of up to 10fps to be set. The quality of both the sensor and processor shine through with the ability of the camera's ISO sensitivity to be set between ISO 100 - 51,200 - expandable to an incredible ISO 50 - 1,640,000.

About the Nikon D500 Camera (Body Only)

The Nikon D500 is a revolutionary DX-format DSLR camera It is sleek yet powerful in a rugged magnesium alloy body, and packs the technology of the D5 into a smaller and lighter unit. It uses a 20.9 megapixel sensor and as a result is the first Nikon DX-format DSLR camera to feature 4K UHD video, the camera recording at up to 30fps, plus having an interval timer and 4K quality time lapse mode.

The D500 uses Nikon's super-fast EXPEED 5 processor which allows a shooting speed of up to 10fps to be set. The quality of both the sensor and processor shine through with the ability of the camera's ISO sensitivity to be set between ISO 100 - 51,200 - expandable to an incredible ISO 50 - 1,640,000.

The camera features SnapBridge (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatible) for wireless connection to a compatible smart device anywhere in the world using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. Wi-Fi and NFC compatibility also give excellent versatility and speed for download to nearby devices. for the fastest transfer of all, the optional WT-7A wireless transmitter can enable file transmission to an FTP server or computer at speeds of up to 866.7Mbps.

Other important features include a detailed 3.2-inch, 2359k-dot Tilt LCD touchscreen and a new Multi-CAM 20K autofocus system which provides 153 AF points including 99 cross type points. Importantly for pro use, it is the first ever DX-format camera to feature XQD card technology for faster writing and transfer speeds, in addition to having the standard SD card slot.

The camera body is dust and water drop resistant and the D500 is compatible with the Advanced Wireless Lighting System which uses radio technology when used with the WR-A10 and WR-R10 units and linked to the SB-5000 Speedlight, enabling wireless multiple flash triggering, even in another room.

Powerful 153-point AF achieves superior subject acquisition performance across a wide range of situations
The D500's Multi-CAM 20K autofocus sensor module offers a dense configuration of 153 focus points (99 cross sensors) that covers an extremely wide portion of the image area, meaning that even fast-moving subjects can be acquired precisely. AF capability is extended down to -4 EV* with the central point and -3 EV* with all other points, making AF usable even in extremely low light or when shooting low-contrast subjects. A newly employed AF engine and 180K-pixel RGB sensor also contribute to achieving exceptional AF performance in a variety of scenes.

*ISO 100, 20°C/68°F.

High-speed continuous shooting at approx. 10 fps for up to 200 shots (14-bit lossless compressed RAW)
The D500 delivers high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 10 fps*1 for up to 200 shots in JPEG and in 14-bit lossless compressed RAW, without any drop in shooting speed. Even moving subjects can be tracked accurately across a wide field of view at this rapid rate, taking advantage of the camera's stable viewfinder image and a widest-ever diagonal viewing angle*2 of approx. 30.8°.

*1Approximate frame rates for a fully charged EN-EL15 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery, using continuous-servo AF, a shutter speed of 1/250 s or faster, and with other settings at default values.

*2*As of January 6, 2016, among D-SLR cameras using an APS-C size image sensor. Based on Nikon research.

Unique benefits of a compact DX system — added agility in telephoto shooting
Nikon's DX-format D500 provides an angle of view equivalent to that of a lens with an approx. 1.5x longer focal length*1. This permits telephoto shooting using smaller, lighter lenses with a shorter focal length, while taking advantage of performance that rivals the D5 FX-format flagship model. The camera's agility is also enhanced by the kit lens, AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR, the lightweight 5x normal zoom lens, which weighs only approx. 1340 g/2 lb 15.3 oz*2 when attached to the D500.

*135mm-format equivalent.

*2Including battery, XQD memory card and lens.

4K UHD video, suitable for professional productions
The D500 can record 4K UHD (3840 x 2160)/30p/25p/24p as well as 1080/60p video for up to 29 min. 59 s*1, with simultaneous output via HDMI available. It is also possible to generate 4K UHD time-lapse movies within the camera. In Full HD or HD mode, the D500's electronic Vibration Reduction function*2 reduces the effects of camera shake in the horizontal, vertical and rotational directions during hand-held movie recording, while Active D-Lighting preserves details in highlights and shadows to capture footage with natural brightness.

*1Recorded in separate files.

*2Image area will be slightly smaller in DX-based movie format.

New EXPEED 5 image-processing engine achieves sensitivity up to ISO 51200, expandable to Hi 5 (equivalent to ISO 1640000)
The D500's new EXPEED 5 image-processing engine, as used in the D5, delivers standard ISO sensitivity from 100 to 51200, expandable down to Lo 1 (ISO 50 equivalent) and up to Hi 5 (ISO 1640000 equivalent). It can capture exceptionally high-definition images, while effectively reducing noise even at high ISO settings. The new 180K-pixel RGB sensor (approx. 180,000 pixels) further improves the performance of the camera's Advanced Scene Recognition System, and its flicker reduction for still images reduces exposure variations even under flickering light sources.

Touch-screen, tilting 8-cm/3.2-in. high-resolution monitor ensures more comfortable shooting for professionals and advanced amateurs
The D500's touch-panel monitor enables a variety of functions, including instant switching of images using the frame advance bar and text input — shared with the D5 — as well as touch AF and touch shutter (in still shooting). The tilting monitor with 3-axis hinge structure allows you to shoot from more flexible angles for stills and movies. And its large 8-cm/3.2-in. screen with significantly enhanced 2359k-dot resolution lets you confirm focus in amazingly precise detail.

SnapBridge support lets you link with a smart device via Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi®
The D500 can be constantly connected to a smart device* with the SnapBridge application installed (to be available as a free download), via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. This enables a variety of features: you can automatically transfer images taken with the D500 to your smart device, as well as upload them automatically to NIKON IMAGE SPACE. You can also use the smart device to browse images stored in the camera, as well as embed images with its location and date/time information. SnapBridge dramatically enhances the value and convenience of images taken with the D500.

*Smartphones and tablet computers with iOS or Android™.

WT-7/A/B/C Wireless Transmitter (optional) enables high-speed wired/wireless LAN communication
Nikon's WT-7/A/B/C Wireless Transmitter is aimed at professionals who need to transfer images more quickly than they can with built-in wireless LAN. When attached to the D500, it allows images and movie files to be transferred to computers* or FTP server via both wired and wireless LAN. The D500 with WT-7/A/B/C can be used as a wireless LAN access point, permitting easy connections with computers and smart devices.

*Requires Wireless Transmitter Utility (available for download from Nikon website).
