The Nikon D500 is the company’s latest DX flagship camera. At first sight, it may appear to be a small and unassuming camera body, yet it conceals a real powerhouse of processing power and technical advancements. The D500 is ready to accompany you wherever your passion takes you, capturing everything with remarkable clarity, speed, and resolution along the way. When it comes to photographing anything from crowded, low-light cityscapes to thrilling wildlife scenes and quick action pictures, the Nikon D500 is the ideal companion for your travels.

Its 4K UHD footage is very clear, and it looks like a movie. Prepare to be astonished by its toughness and adaptability. And, once you’ve shot your stunning images, you can view them on the D500’s high-resolution tilt touchscreen display before sharing them with others via the camera’s built-in SnapBridge (Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth) features. Whatever you choose to photograph, you can be confident that the D500 will perform admirably time and time again.

The D500 is a slim and elegant camera that can be taken anywhere and yet deliver amazing quality and performance. Because of the DX sensor’s ability to pack a lot of power into a tiny camera body, you can take advantage of the smaller and lighter DX lenses available in the NIKKOR line—and while you’re traveling, every ounce of weight saves you money. Most importantly, there is no need to sacrifice image quality in order to achieve portability. With its 20.9 megapixel CMOS sensor, the D500 achieves the ideal balance between resolution and image quality, and it is ready to capture the fine details, colors, and textures that the world has to offer. It will be ready to go, effortless and inconspicuous, whether you’re trekking through the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand or on safari in Africa with the D500 at your side.

NIKKOR lenses

The D500, like every other Nikon DSLR, performs best when used in conjunction with famous NIKKOR lenses, which provide unrivaled clarity and versatility. A reason why more than 95 million NIKKOR lenses have been sold to date is because of the legendary NIKKOR history. Your memories will be captured from a different perspective with each lens you choose. Are you photographing landscapes or portraits? The quick AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR lens from Nikon might become your closest buddy in the field. Alternatively, the lightweight AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II, which is perfect for photographing sports, parades, and distant buildings, can expand your range. Whatever combination you choose, the Nikon D500 and world-class NIKKOR lenses are a surefire formula for photographic success.

Light to Dark

There’s a lot more to see than you think.
Is there not enough light to go around? The D500 makes the most of every ray of sunlight that strikes it, allowing you to capture high-quality photos even in low-light settings. With a native ISO range of 100 – 51,200, which is extendable to Lo 1 and Hi 5 (equivalent to 50 – 1,640,000), the D500 is not frightened by challenging low-light circumstances, even while shooting at a lower shutter speed. Exquisite details emerge from the shadows, resulting in images of unparalleled quality that can only be achieved by using Nikon cameras and lenses.
