Nikon D500 16-80mm Kit

Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the D500, a DX-format digital SLR camera that packs the incredible performance of the D5, Nikon's flagship FX-format model, into an agile body.

The D500 incorporates the same powerful 153-point AF system as the D5, ensuring precise subject acquisition even during high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 10 fps. It supports 4K UHD movies, meeting the demands of multimedia professionals, while the new EXPEED 5 image-processing engine enables it to deliver high-quality images and movies and realizes a wide sensitivity range from ISO 100 to 51200, expandable to Hi 5 (ISO 1640000 equivalent).

The D500 combines the agility of the DX system with superior usability. It employs a touch-screen, tilting monitor, and features SnapBridge support, which enhances the value of your images via constant wireless connection with a smart device. The camera is compatible with the newly released MB-D17 Multi-Power Battery Pack (optional), which can be used with various types of battery.

Product Features

  • 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.
  • 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 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 of approx. 30.8°.
  • 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. 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.
  • 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, 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 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR Lens

Included with the camera body is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR lens, which provides a 24-120mm equivalent focal length range that covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. A bright f/2.8-4 maximum aperture range benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords greater control over focus placement for selective focus shooting. The optical design of this DX-dedicated zoom incorporates three aspherical elements and four extra-low dispersion elements, which combine to reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range. This lens also incorporates a four stop-effective Vibration Reduction system to minimize the appearance of camera shake, and an electromagnetic aperture mechanism offers greater exposure stability at fast continuous shooting rates. Super Integrated and Nano Crystal Coatings have been applied to individual lens elements to control lens flare and ghosting, and both the front and rear elements also receive a fluorine coating to guard against smudging, moisture, and dust.

Two weeks with the Nikon D500 and I must say it is a stunning camera. Firstly, it just feels right in your hand, super balanced with the 16-80mm lens and when you press the button so quick to capture the moment. I used the camera, just a few days in, to take pictures at a wedding I was doing in Tewkesbury Abbey - I must have been mad. Outside the summer sun was very bright, inside the building pretty dark but it sailed through everything I photographed as the wedding photographer. With higher ISO's no grain capturing the service, so you don't really need to use flash and in the abbey grounds a very balanced exposure for the formal images with great detail in the whites of the dress. You have to work quickly in these occasions and it didn't disappoint - accurate exposure throughout and amazing sharpness - many images look really 3D when shown on a 4K TV. Flip up / down back screen great for a different viewpoint. The touch screen on back was also great to use to check sharpness. Early days lots still to play with a great camera
The toggle focus needs a gentle touch and a little practice. The battery only lasted for 300 images when recording in NEF and JPEG on both cards. Compared to the D7200 which lasted all day you will need some spare batteries.

Had this for a few days, having used a D3s/D4/D4s and D810 the D500 matches the pro features such as buttons where they're needed. 20+mp is great too, not too big like the D810. The screen is superb, not too sure about the hinge, time will tell. The touchscreen facility is ideal for reviewing frames & checking focus. I also particularly like the AF-ON option of selecting auto, handy if you need to change quickly.

If this was full frame like the D700 I'd be very happy as all my lenses are FX. Saying that the16-80 "kit" lens is very good quality especially with VR.

I got this for weddings as the D4s is a killer on the arms after 10hrs and I wasn't convinced about the benefit of a £5k D5 for weddings.
Nikon have skimped on not building a radio trigger into it to go with the SB 5000, you have to spent over £150 for the add-on trigger and the snap bridge isn't available for iPhone until later this year.
