D500 (Body Only)

DX-format DSLR Camera


Please Note: Cashback only applies to brand new products.

The D500 from Nikon is capable DX-fomat DSLR featuring a 20.9MP CMOS sensor and EXPEED 5 image processor, making it well-suited to both still and video shooting. Enjoy a 10 fps continuous shooting rate and 4K UHD video recording abilities, with a native sensitivity range up to ISO 51200, expandable to 1640000, for working in low light conditions.

A Multi-CAM 20K 153-point AF system, which features 99 cross-type points, and a dedicated AF engine provides quick response times to benefit tracking fast and randomly moving subjects, even at the top 10 fps shooting rate. The AF engine also contributes to enhanced focusing sensitivity, with all points capable of focusing -3 EV and the centre point capable of reading at -4 EV for working in very dark, low-contrast situations. Furthering the versatility of the focusing system, seven different AF-area modes can be selected to support varying types of subjects matter.

In addition to the range of AF-area modes, an AF lock-on function can also be used to improve subject tracking performance, and can be adjusted by two parameters; quick or delayed blacked shot AF response and erratic or steady subject movement. By configuring these settings, the AF performance can be optimised to handle a wide variety of subjects.

When shooting video, the D500 supports 4K UHD video recording at 30, 25, and 24 fps frame rates and Full HD/HD recording at up to 60 fps, along with the ability to save movie files to the in-camera memory cards or as an uncompressed file to an optional external recorder via HDMI out. An Electronic Vibration Reduction feature can be used during Full HD and HD recording, to minimise the appearance of camera shake across three axes to control horizontal, vertical, and rotational movements. Additionally, Active D-Lighting can also be employed during Full HD/HD shooting to preserve highlight and shadow detail when working in high-contrast situations.

A dedicated power aperture button (Pv) makes it possible to achieve smooth, continuous exposure transitions when switching from light to dark areas and Auto ISO can also be used to maintain consistent brightness when working in changing light situations. Record audio using the built-in stereo microphone or attach an optional external mic via the 3.5mm stereo jack. Audio levels can be adjusted in 20 increments and live monitoring is possible via the headphone jack, which affords 30 different volume levels for playback.

In addition to movie recording, time-lapse recording for up to 9999 consecutive frames shot over the course of up to one week, is also possible with up to 4K UHD/30p output from the camera.

Compose your images using the bright pentaprism optical viewfinder with 100% frame coverage and a 1.0x magnification, or use the 3.2", 2.36m-dot, tilting LCD touchscreen, ideal for working from high and low angles. The touch screen also provides intuitive menu navigation and settings control, and is usable while shooting, giving you the ability to choose a focus point or an area to set the white balance from.

Crafted with a durable magnesium alloy chassis, the D500 is both dust- and weather-sealed for peace of mind when working in unpredictable conditions. The ergonomic grip and overall form factor are shaped to benefit handling for extended periods of time and are further accentuated by anti-slip, textured controls and easy-to-open card slot covers. Additionally, most of the buttons on the rear of the camera are illuminated for greater visibility when working in dim lighting conditions. Two configurable Fn buttons, one front-facing and the other rear-facing, may be assigned for checking depth of field or other shooting controls.

An updated version of SnapBridge is also featured, which provides Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC, as well as Bluetooth Low Energy technology for linking your mobile device for wireless image sharing. The included EN-EL15 rechargeable lithium-ion battery is CIPA-rated to last for approximately 1240 shots per charge in single-frame release modes. The optional MB-D17 Multi-Power Battery Pack can also be added to further extend shooting times.
