Nikon D500 4K Body Only

1455.00

Flagship power—DX agility. Go further with the D500.
As the smaller sibling to the D5, Nikon’s FX-format flagship, the D500 offers phenomenal power and precision. Nikon’s next-generation 153-point AF system provides exceptionally wide coverage. New image and metering sensors deliver phenomenally accurate subject recognition and detail. You can shoot at up to 10 fps, and the high-performance buffer allows up to 200 NEF (RAW) images to be captured during one high-speed burst. Combined, this means you can shoot at maximum image quality for an incredible 20 seconds. And for moviemakers who go to extremes, D-Movie enables high-definition 4K/UHD movies of up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds long to be recorded in-camera.
