Nikon’s fleeting DX flagship is a powerful all-rounder with professional capabilities. Its rugged body is filled with a top-spec CMOS sensor, sky-high ISO levels for exceptional low-light shooting and state-of-the-art Smart sharing features. Shoot super-sharp 4K video at lightning speed, get in tight angles with the tilting touch screen and enjoy even sharpness with the 153-point Autofocus. The D500 is an extraordinary bit of kit that will give you free rein to snap anything and everything with magnificent clarity – whether it close-up portraiture, high-octane sports or distant wildlife.
Channel your imagination through the D500’s mighty body. As its large 23.5mm x 15.7mm CMOS sensor captures startling depth and detail, the 20.9MPs will give your photos a pin-sharp finish. Fuelled by the EXPEED 5 image processor, you’ll snap at rapid speeds and get the guile of the moment every time. This is topped off with a zippy 10fps shooting speed and rich 1/8000-30 second shutter speed range, so your creative freedom has no limits.
Nikon’s brand-new Multi-CAM 20K autofocus (AF) system delivers 153 AF points and 99 cross-type points. This means that more areas of the image are honed in on and sharpened, giving all-over clarity perfect for sweeping landscape shots.
The D500 has an incredibly-high 51200 ISO, letting you shoot stunning shots at night or in low-light settings. This can even be expanded to Lo 1 and Hi 5 (50 – 1,640,000 ISO equivalent), giving simply glorious results. This way, your shots won’t be ruined when the sun goes go down, letting you flex your creativity 24 hours a day.
Fabulous 4K Video
This Nikon’s first DSLR to let you shoot films in 4K Ultra HD. This resolution, with four-times the pixels of Full HD, captures moments with insanely crisp and cinematic results. Recording at up to 30fps, motion has the super-smoothness perfect for sports clips. There’s also a built-in interval timer and 4K UHD time-lapse function, letting you craft spectacular sped-up movies.
Smart Feature Suite
Once you’ve snapped a stunning shot, you can share it with your friends in an instant with the built-in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. This SnapBridge functionality lets you hook up your smart device in an instant, speeding up wireless photo transfer. To make it even faster, the D500’s Near Field Communication (NFC) lets you link the camera to your device by simply tapping it.
Tilting 3.2” Touch Screen
If you’re looking to get your angle just right, it can be a strain to stretch and kneel around your subject. Nikon’s 3.2” touch screen monitor tilts so you can snap high and low angles with remarkable ease. Adjust its position to snap close-ups of budding flora, sweeping over-the-top crowd shots or thrilling sports snaps. This way, your creativity won’t be hampered by discomfort.

Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be; the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.
