Con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing

NPhoto - - Feature -

One of the pur­poses of this com­par­i­son is to show how a DX-for­mat Nikon can give you more for your money than a sim­i­larly-priced FX model, and this is most ap­par­ent for ac­tion pho­tog­ra­phy, where the D500 ex­cels. The smaller mir­ror and shut­ter as­sem­bly al­lows high-speed con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing with­out a mas­sive step up in cost, and the D500 has a pow­er­ful Ex­peed 5 pro­ces­sor and twin cards slots, one of which uses su­per-fast XQD mem­ory cards. It can shoot con­tin­u­ously at 10 frames per sec­ond and cap­ture up to 200 RAW im­ages in a sin­gle burst. The D750 can­not come close to this per­for­mance. con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing: 10fps RAW: 200 shots JPEG: 200 shots buf­fer ca­pac­ity: 200/200 shots

The D500 is an out-and-out sports spe­cial­ist that eas­ily out­per­forms the D750 for ac­tion pho­tog­ra­phy. It might seem ex­pen­sive for a DX model, but you’re get­ting (al­most) the per­for­mance of the Nikon D5. But while it’s per­fect for tele­photo pho­tog­ra­phy, the rel­a­tive lack of pro-spec shorter fo­cal length lenses means the DX for­mat has lim­its for other ar­eas of pho­tog­ra­phy.
