Picture This: Nikon's D500


Nikon, a company reputable for its above-average compact cameras and accessories, has stunned the photography industry again with its latest and greatest. The D500 is exactly what one needs to adhere to their creatively cinematic style, with no beauty compromised.

It adjusts. Sunset on boulevard or bustling rainforest wildlife, the body is captured. It moves as quickly as a photographer’s eye, effortlessly able to snapshot a moment as fast as they come, exactly as they come. Every detail is deftly obtained so that each passing second of the view is seized and safely stored away for further reference. Owners are afforded the luxury of a high-resolution touchscreen display that is completed with a built-in SnapBridge (But what is a Snapbridge?), Bluetooth enabling photo sharing via WiFi connection. Compatibility lies with Android 5.0 and later, as well as IOS 8.4 and later.

It might be small, but the technology is impeccably powerful. Take it anywhere in anything and pack it so it is handy and within reach – a camera like this needs to be close at all times. Thanks to its DX sensor, consumers can take advantage of smaller and lighter lenses that still perform with just as much detail and perfection. And the camera? Equipped with EXPEED 5 Processor, a powerful engine that processes 10 images per second with 99 different cross-points in auto-focus. And its ability to stabilize images under low-quality light, creating high-quality pictures, is absolutely stunning. Careful, this is not the selling point. Seeing, after all, is believing: click to scroll through the sampling selling factors. Better yet, watch the video briefing, restrain the urge to order four immediately (presumably one for each season) and compare megapixels (20.9, to be exact). No other camera is like this, no matter how hard they try.

Exquisite, handy, bold and quick; how much more success is there to be demanded? The body is priced at $1,899.95, $2,499.95 for the complete lens kit; but these numbers are only temporary. Perhaps it is time for the photographer to harness the camera’s capabilities and performance. And since man cannot simply become a small, geometric machine, one will have to purchase one instead.
