The D500 is great (disregard nay-sayers)
First of all, I didn't buy this camera on Amazon. I bought it elsewhere because I knew I could get it faster there (proof of purchase in pics). Secondly, all of the negative reviews I read so far should be disregarded, or better yet, deleted. I don't care if it's "just an opinion." If you're misrepr...

Best cameras for sports and action in 2021
The Nikon D500 is essentially a mini D5 with a smaller sensor and no built-in vertical grip.
Instead of a full-frame sensor, the D500 uses a 20.9MP APS-C sensor with excellent JPEG and Raw image quality. The AF system and subject tracking capabilities are ripped right from the D5 and as you might ha...

Nikon D500 Review
ConclusionsIt took Nikon a long time to bring the D500 to market, but it's here, and it's an outstanding performer. Image quality is as good as you'll get from an APS-C camera, the autofocus system is top-notch, 4K video capture is available, and the body is built like a tank.

It is a better D810 for wildlife and sports shooters.
As usual my background so you can calibrate what your read. A long time Nikon user, since 70s, currently using a D810, D600 and D7100 to be replaced by the new D500. I shoot Wildlife both in the wild and in the streets. Now about this Camera. I will divide it to 3 parts. Image quality, Usability and...

Excellent for sports photography
I am a longtime Nikon user but I hesitated a little before buying a D500. Obviously DSLRs are on their way out so I was concerned about investing in an APS-C F mount camera in 2021 when it is likely that we may see little to no future development on F mount bodies or lenses. I decided to make the pu...

You’re Gonna Love It!
I have been shooting on a Nikon D3400 for a little over a year and was ready to upgrade my camera body. The D3400 has been a GREAT camera and I still have it. I spent about 4 months researching a full-frame mirrorless (Nikon Z6 exclusively) and the D500. I went with the D500 because I liked that my ...

All-around great camera and amazing DX camera in low-light situations
The Nikon D500 is an awesome DSLR. Being a DX camera, I was a little concerned about the low-light performance of the sensor -- the 1.5x crop factor has never bothered me. However, the D500 is incredible at outside night and also inside with little lighting. I get usable, high-quality, low-noise ima...

This years best DSLR.
Lets start off this review by taking a look at the build quality of the Nikon D500. The first thing you feel when you pick up the D500 is just how big it is. But to me that’s not a bad thing at all. It feels incredibly solid and moulds to your hand really quite well. It’s not actually as heavy as yo...

Great camera!
I have a D850 and wanted another body for action and wildlife. I researched the matter fairly deeply. I have Nikon lenses and wanted to stick to brand (for all the talk about the differences and abilities of other brands, particularly Sony. I didn't want to find myself in their universes needing the...
