INTRODUCTION

Nikon D500
Nikon D500

Everyone who is eagerly waiting for the follow-up to the very much loved Nikon D300S, your wait is finally over. Nikon has finally launched D500. It sits at top of the APS-C tree for Nikon. Many photographers feel that full frame is the best, but there are many positives to a crop sensor. It helps wildlife and sports photographers to get closer to the subject by using lighter and smaller lenses. This camera has many features of Nikon’s full frame cameras, but comes without their high price tags. It is equipped with the same focusing system and processor as that of Nikon D5. Let’s see what else this camera from Nikon has to offer –

SENSOR RESOLUTION

The D500 is equipped with Nikon’s 16 – 80 mm f/2.8-4 lens, and you can also use DX format lenses from the extensive range of lenses from Nikon. It has an APS-C sensor. This camera has got some pretty awesome ISO of 1, 64,000, which is still much less than that of D5’s ISO of 3 million, but is something which won’t affect ordinary users.

BUILD AND HANDLING

The camera has textured grip, which feels quite nice in the hand, and it is designed in a way that your middle finger can sit comfortably while the forefinger can rest in the shutter release. The screen is touch sensitive, but Nikon has still provided a decent number of buttons and dials all around.

CONTROLS

There is also a dedicated ISO button along with focus type button and exposure compensation button. You will also find a couple of customisable function buttons, which can be used to assign various settings according to the user.

PERFORMANCE

The camera has 153 AF points, out of which, 99 are for great sensitivity. The camera’s 15 points are sensitive at f/8, which is something that is bound to attract wildlife photographers. They can extender or a long lens. All the focus points are sensitive at -3EV, apart from the main sensor which is sensitive at -4EV. This makes it wonderful and perfectly ideal for low light situations. The focusing speed is excellently swift and only takes a while to focus in dark and extremely dark conditions. It is a very useful camera for wildlife and sports photographers as its continuous focus is awesome, and it keeps the subject in focus all the time under the active AF point. The camera’s start-up timing is very swift as well along with a shot to shot timing. You can even take 4K videos with this camera, with some excellent video quality. The quality is so good that this camera can be considered by videographers who like to shoot some movies with a DSLR.

IMAGE QUALITY

A good level vibrance can be seen in JPEGs directly from the camera display. The sensor also reproduces quite well details. You can even use this camera at higher ISO settings and it shall perform well. You can find a little smoothing in images clicked at higher ISO settings of ISO 12,800 to 51,200. Examine them at 100 %.
