Nikon D500 features and functions


Nikon D500

The Nikon D500 is now available as that somewhat small professional model from the Japanese manufacturer Nikon. The Nikon’s new product incorporates a lot of technology from the Nikon D5, but has a smaller sensor in APS-C format.

A very sensitive part

One of the same technology features is the resolution of the Nikon D500, which is 20 megapixels. Although most cameras with APS-C sensor have a resolution of 24 megapixels, the manufacturer sees this size for the Nikon D500 sufficient.

With the new Nikon D500 they are able to adjust even with the normal settings up to ISO 51,200. Of course, the ISO automatic works around the same values.

Apart from that, even up to ISO 1,640,000 can be set in Hi mode.

A modern touch screen

Here you can expand the improved Nikon D500 screen. Besides, this is not all about improvements, they can also achieve a remarkably higher resolution of up to 1024×768 pixels with the Nikon D500 screen. Which means that a striking sharper presentation of photos and videos is generated.


With a tap, they can realize all their desired movements. With the exception of the flip through menus, which must be done with the camera key.

Small exchange in terms of brightness

As you probably already know there is usually a flash that is built into the cameras, but with the Nikon D500 this flash was not installed. The reason is that with the D500 a viewfinder with enormous size was installed. The viewfinder of the Nikon D500 provides the compensation of the light as well as the previous flash.

An autofocus of the fastest kind

The Nikon D500 has an extremely light-sensitive new autofocus. It focuses quite fast even in very low light, moreover it focusses with more or better light as fast as lightning. Focusing with the Nikon D500 takes only 0.13 seconds.

Exceptional to the Nikon D500 is the speed of the autofocus, which works very accurately and quickly even with long focal lengths. The small sensor used in the Nikon D500 allows you to focus on the camera without much effort. The Nikon D500 autofocus can shoot about 9 frames per second.


The new Nikon D500 camera can be connected to Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth. You can even use a radio adapter set Nikon WR-10 to activate / trigger the D500 on radio command. With this technology, they can effortlessly transfer their photos and recordings to their smartphones or tablets.

4K video recording

With the Nikon D500 you will be able to shoot in 4K and 3840×2160 pixels. In addition, even 30 frames per second are feasible. The D500 measures the quality of their recordings with the number of 1,045 line pairs.
