Technical editor Matt Higgs says: Offering many of the professional features found in Nikon’s flagship D5, but in a more compact Dx-format body, the D500 blends blistering performance speeds with an affordable price tag. Capable of incredible-quality 20.9MP stills and 10fps-burst shooting, it also touts internal 4K UHD video recording and a highly accurate 153-point AF System. Throw in Snapbridge support for wireless image transfer, a tilting touchscreen display and an XQD memory card slot, and its all-encompassing feature set knocked us for six when we reviewed it last August. For wildlife shooters and those uninterested in full-frame sensors, it’s virtually the perfect tool.
The D500 sits at the top of Nikon’s APS-C line-up with a host of advanced features.
