Nikon D500 review

 

This speedy APS-C classic loves to be where the action is...

Fantastic image quality for a range of subjects ; Loads of manual controls ; Brilliant autofocus system ; Excellent optical viewfinder

Expensive for an APS-C camera

The best APS-C camera you can buy and well worth its slightly painful price tag

Nikon D500 review: The best APS-C DSLR ever made?

 

It's been a long time since Nikon launched the D300, a camera that arrived at roughly the same time as the very first iPhone. Yep, that long ago. That camera's successor, the D300S, hit the market last decade too. But now the long wait for a...

Fully realised autofocus system, fast shooting and huge buffer, great image quality, smaller and more manageable than D5, tilt-angle touchscreen, ups its video capabilities (including 4K)

“Hi” ISO settings aren’t useful - they’re just headline grabbers, screen isn’t fully variable, touchscreen inaccessible for menu controls

The Nikon D500 is a DSLR with little compare. It steps up beyond the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (assuming that isn’t replaced at Photokina 2016), while the range of Nikon DX optics will see it as the more practical solution compared to the Pentax K-1 for...

Nikon D500 review

 

Nikon's baby D5 is perfect for the action photographer

Brilliant AF system ; 10fps shooting for 200 raw files ; Metal, weather-sealed body ; Polished handling ; Excellent image quality

Live View AF can be slow ; Tilting rather than vari-angle screen ; Limited touchscreen control

At last Nikon has a professional-level APS-C-format camera to replace the D300S and compete with Canon's EOS 7D Mk II. It's a fantastic DSLR that's packed with pro-spec features, including an impressive AF system and great low-light credentials that...

Nikon D500 review

 

After 6 years neglecting the power APS-C action photographer, Nikon released the mostly impressive D500 dSLR, the little sister to the pro full-frame D5 . With the same autofocus and metering systems as that model, a high-sensitivity 20.9-megapixel...

The Nikon D500 is fast with excellent continuous-shooting and autofocus performance, its 4K video support is a welcome novelty for its dSLR price class and, of course, there's the great photo quality.

Terrible wireless file-transfer and remote-control app, and its Live View (contrast) autofocus could use a boost.

There's tons to like about the Nikon D500, from its fast shooting and excellent image quality to its broad feature set and streamlined design. But it still falls short with its Live View autofocus and seriously subpar wireless file transfer and...

Nikon D500 review - a joyful experience with rewarding results

 

Outstanding quality across the board, the Nikon D500 is fast, feature-packed and takes beautiful photos.

Nikon appears to be on a mission to pack the best of everything into this camera, and by and large it has succeeded. It looks, feels and behaves like a quality piece of kit, it rarely keeps you waiting and it’s unfazed by tricky shooting conditions....

This Nikon DX format camera features a 20.9MP CMOS sensor teamed with the company’s Expeed 5 processor. ISO range is 100-51,200, expandable to 50-1,640,000. The D500 can deliver up to 10 fps shooting with AF and AE, with an enhanced buffer for up to 79...

Expert review by : Charles Poladian (mashable.com)

Nikon D500 is a sport shooter's dream come true

 

The trusty old reliable DSLR is far from dead.

Great versatility and performance ; Increased ISO sensitivity to capture in low light ; Excellent, durable build quality

SnapBridge is ho-hum ; Limited touchscreen LCD capabilities ; Slow Live View

The Nikon D500 does not disappoint with blinding speed and lots of options.

Read our full review of the new 20 megapixel Nikon D500, with high speed shooting and 4K video recording.

Excellent noise performance - best in class ; Improved white balance performance, and settings ; High resolution tilting touch-screen ; Dual-axis electronic level ; 100%, 1.0x magnification viewfinder ; Quick live view shutter response ; 153 focus...

Photo shooting menu bank / custom settings may not be to everyone's preference ; Remote shooting app could do with some better controls ; Limited touch-screen controls ; Lacks built-in flash ; Price

The Nikon D500 goes head-to-head with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II , and offers 10fps continuous shooting, an updated and rapid focus system with excellent frame coverage, as well as 4K video. The weather-sealed camera body is also set up for outdoor...

Hands on: Nikon D500 April 16th, 2016 | by Wilson Wong Imaging 8

 

At a time when sensors are getting bigger, an SLR camera like the Nikon D500, with a crop sensor, will still win over nature and sports photographers.
