Nikon D500 Unveiled
The Nikon D500 is the latest new product to be announced by Nikon at this year’s CES in Las Vegas. Just like with the Nikon D5, this camera ushers in a new era of DX-Format performance for the brand.
Don’t be mislead by the smaller camera body size. There is a whole lot of power packed into the Nikon D500’s portable design. The lighter weight makes every ounce count. Yet, it is rugged and durable and returns amazing image performance.
Technological advances are at the forefront of the new Nikon D500. Nikon’s EXPEED 5 processor allow up to 10 frames per second and the Multi-CAM 20k autofocus system provides 153 AF points including 99 cross type points. It all adds up to you get amazingly quick and sharp images!
With the new Nikon D500, you won’t have to worry much about light either. Low light photography is a breeze with a native ISO range of 100 – 51,200, and expandable to Lo 1 and Hi 5 (50 – 1,640,000 equivalent). You’ll be taking great shots even when there is barely any light to be found.
Not just photos either because the Nikon D500 is the first time you can record in 4K UHD video on a Nikon DX DSLR. Just imagine all the great video and even web clips you can produce with that technology all wrapped up in one small camera.
The Nikon D500 promises to be a great camera for bloggers and video bloggers. All the work that has gone in to making the camera compatible with smartphone technology is impressive. Nikon SnapBridge functionality means you can wirelessly connect the camera to your smartphone or other smart devices. So, if you are out shooting images for your blog or video for your YouTube channel, all you have to do is connect using the built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy technology and your content can go right from your camera to your phone or tablet for posting.
