The Nikon D500 Camera

The D500 is Nikon’s flagship DX-sensor DSLR and long-overdue update to the D300s. Key features include:

At Last An Update. A lot has changed since the D300s rolled out in 2009. Some of the D500’s notable improvements over its predecessor are a new 20.9MP DX sensor with higher sensitivity, an all-new autofocus system, 10 fps continuous shooting, and 4K video recording.

Flagship-Caliber Image Quality. The all-new 20.9MP DX crop-frame sensor is paired with an EXPEED 5 processor to give you a native ISO range of 100-51,200. For the adventurous, it’s expandable to 50-1,640,000—perfect for night-time backstreet motorcycle races!

High Speed Autofocus/Frame Rate. The advantage to being released alongside the D5 is the shared technology, and the D500 struck gold here. You’re getting the same Multi-CAM 20K AF system that offers 153 phase-detection AF points with 99 cross-type sensors. Where the AF points only cover the central portion of the frame of the D5, the smaller DX sensor in the D500 means nearly edge-to-edge coverage. Nikon’s stellar tracking-focus system promises even better continuous focus performance. Pair that with the 10 fps high-speed continuous frame rate and a 200-frame RAW-buffer limit, and you’d have to work hard to not get your shot.

4K Video. The D500 features in-camera 4K UHD recording at 24/25/30p (DX crop only), Full HD up to 1080/60p, and uncompressed output to an external recorder via HDMI mini input. Stereo audio can be captured in-camera or externally via 1/8" mic input, while a separate 1/8" headphone input and 20-step manual adjustment enable precision audio monitoring. Still no focus peaking or zebra warnings, so we recommend using an external electronic viewfinder/video monitor with those features.

Professional Build. The magnesium-alloy body features elaborate weather-sealing, multiple customizable buttons, bright 1x optical pentaprism with 100% viewfinder coverage, and an EN-EL15 battery life rated at 1240 shots per charge. Notably new to the D500 is a large, tilting, touch-sensitive 3.2" rear LCD with familiar smartphone-like navigation and instant focus-point selection, and SnapBridge wireless connectivity to smart device.

Dual SD/XQD Slots. The D500 offers both SDHC/XC (with UHS-II support) and XQD memory card recording. SD cards are far more common and offer fast read/write times, but the addition of the XQD option allows for far superior speed capability and reliability.

Wireless Slave Flash Capability. The D500 offers support for the Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight wireless control, but it requires the use of the Nikon WR-R10/T10/A10 Wireless Remote Adapter Set. This enables the camera and flash to wirelessly control up to six groups of flashes from up to 98' away, free from line-of-sight restrictions.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
