Nikon D500 Review

The Nikon D500 is a 21MP APS-C DSLR capable of shooting at up to 10 frames per second and featuring an autofocus system derived from the one in the D5. In other words, it’s exactly the kind of high-end DX format body that appeared to have become extinct with the D300S.

This D500 is Nikon's best DX sports camera because it's the fastest DX camera ever: 10 frames per second, it can shoot through the flicker of typical sports arena, pool and gymnasium lighting, and it shoots at ridiculously high ISOs like 51,200 and still looks great.

It has superb auto white balance, giving great colors in all sorts of crummy artificial lighting like LED, incandescent, fluorescent out in the real world.

The D500 is the first consumer Nikon that's worthwhile considering for serious sports shooting. For sports, it's a complete winner.

It has the same autofocus system as the top of the line D5, which is fast and hot in any light.

As expected, it has more AF points than ever before, but you can't select them all. You have only 55 selectable points, even if there are a claimed 153 AF points hidden somewhere.

The Nikon D500 is quite large for an APS-C DSLR, but it isn't unwieldy. The front grip is fairly narrow and really deep, allowing for me to get a strong and comfortable hold on the camera. As a pro-oriented DSLR, it has a lot of conveniently placed physical controls and a large LCD display on the top deck of the camera. An aspect of the camera's controls that I particularly like is the repositioned ISO button on the top right part of the camera, which puts all exposure-related controls within reach of the right hand.

The D500 also gains an anti-flicker option designed to ensure the camera shoots in-sync with the brightest point in the flickering cycle of artificial lights. It's a feature we first saw on the Canon EOS 7D Mark II and we'd expect it to be particularly valuable for shooting indoor sports such as basketball.

The rear display is large at 3.2 inches (diagonally) and has 2,359,000 dots that offers excellent detail. Not only is it a big, high-resolution display, but it also articulates and offers touchscreen functionality. The display is unfortunately not a tilt-swivel display, but its articulation is good nonetheless. It can be a little stiff to pull out and tilt, but you get used to it quickly. With that said, it is a rugged mechanism that appears to be built to last.

In addition to the touchscreen and the standard navigation button configuration, the D500 also includes a sub-selector joystick like you find on the D5. The joystick is quite small and probably not ideal for precisely navigating through the menu, but it works well overall.

The viewfinder design is similar to that of the D810 and can be opened and closed with a switch to block stray light during long exposures. The cover can be unscrewed for cleaning or swapping out, too. In addition, the mirror mechanism has been designed to reduce viewfinder blackout time which helps when following moving subjects.
