Reasons the D500 was selected as the recipient of the European Prosumer DSLR Camera 2016-2017 award (summary of EISA comments)

Nikon's flagship DX-format digital SLR camera, the D500, which delivers high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 10 fps*, is perfectly suited for action photography. Its powerful 153-point (99 cross sensors) AF system provides precise subject acquisition, particularly with moving subjects. A newly developed DX sensor, with an effective pixel count of 20.9 million pixels, gives superb image quality, and, with a maximum standard sensitivity of ISO 51200, the D500 is especially good for shooting in low light. Build quality and handling are superb with a large, bright viewfinder and tilting rear touchscreen display. The ability to record 4K video and Nikon's new SnapBridge connectivity rounds off a hugely impressive digital SLR.

  • * Approximate frame rates when using continuous-servo AF, a shutter speed of 1/250 s or faster, and with other settings at default values.
