Nikon D500 Specs and Top Accessories You Should Have

 Meet the new DX flagship, the Nikon D500. At first glance, it may seem unimposing—but contained within a streamlined camera body is a veritable powerhouse of processing power and technological advances. Nikon D500 is one of  the best choose for photographer in the world and it's the best competitor of the Fujifilm X-T2 and Canon EOS 5D.

 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.

The six-and-a-half years that have passed since the D300S’ launch have seen the camera market move on considerably but the D500 does much to reclaim the position as one of the preeminent APS-C camera on the market.

As you might expect, much of the improved capability of the camera centers around sports and high-speed shooting, with significant upgrades to the shooting rate and autofocus system, but there are also major upgrades to the viewfinder, video capabilities and connectivity options which expand its utility beyond one particular niche.

Nikon D500 Specs:

  • 20.7MP APS-C (DX-format) sensor
  • 153 point AF module with 99 cross-type points
  • 180,000 pixel RGB sensor for metering and subject recognition
  • AF point joystick
  • 10 fps shooting for up to 200 shots (lossless compressed 14-bit Raw to XQD card)
  • 4K (UHD) video from 1.5x crop of sensor
  • 100% coverage viewfinder with 1.0x magnification
  • 2.36M-dot tilting touchscreen display
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity with NFC for setup
  • Mic and headphone sockets
  • Anti-flicker option for working under artificial lighting

Lens Accessories For Nikon D500

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED [Nikon D500 Accessories]
[Nikon D500 Accessories]

This isn't the cheapest or most popular prime—that award goes to the evergreen nifty fifty Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G—but in the long run it will give you the most value for your money as it can be used as a wide-angle if you eventually decide to upgrade to full frame.

 While it's true that the two Nikon 50mm lenses also work in full frame, they end up being a bit long in DX with an effective focal length of 75mm. The 24mm f/1.8 will let you work at a constant fast aperture at an effective focal length of 36mm, which is a great all-purpose length.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR [Nikon D500 Accessories]
[Nikon D500 Accessories]
 Telephotos have always been quite expensive, but this 70-300mm sits in between the entry-level Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II at $139 and the professional-level Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200MM F/2.8G ED VR II at $1,859.

 To put it simply, if you are a professional sports or action photographer you probably won't be reading this (or you'll already own the 70-200mm and more), but if you are an enthusiast this 70-300mm will be just perfect. It's sharp, relatively fast for autofocus, and has VR.

 Unlike the cheaper 55-200mm, it will work on FX as well as DX, and even has an extra 100mm reach compared to Nikon's professional telephoto standard. The D500 is a lightning fast beast of a camera, and should be a top choice for anyone looking to do sports, wildlife, or action photography. 

 After all, it's got the same autofocus mechanism as the new D5, and can shoot 10fps using 153-AF points. In low light, this 70-300mm isn't the fastest at 300mm, but with the high ISO capability of the D500 who even cares?

Lexar Professional 2933 Micro SD [Nikon D500 Accessories]

Lexar XQD 2933x Card (440MB/s) – The Nikon D500 has 2 memory card slots, 1 for SD and 1 for XQD. The XQD is by far more useful if you want the best buffer performance and more than enough 4K video speed. Nothing beats the Lexar 2933x card and it’s actually slightly cheaper than the fastest SD card (but still slower than this XQD).

  • Read up to 440MB/s + Write up to 400MB/s
  • You can easily take 200 JPEG or RAW shots before the buffer fills, then continue almost instantly
  • 4K Video is a piece of cake for this card
  • You can store over 7,000 shots on 64GB (assuming you shoot at 20MP, JPEG)
Tripod for Nikon D500 [Nikon D500 Accessories]

Tripod for Nikon D500

Dolica AX620 62″ Tripod and Ball Head – Hands down the best tripod for any DSLR under $100 (this one costs $50). You shouldn’t get the cheapest tripod because they’re usually aimed at lighter cameras like a point and shoot.

  • Weighs 2.5 lbs and is 22.5 inches tall (when fully collapsed)

  • Ball head plate and a bubble level
Price : 49.00$

                                        Disc Light Reflectors
Neewer 5-in-1 (43″) Collapsible Light Reflector – Light is the most important factor for any photograph, and the more you can control/affect it, the more chances you have of truly getting professional shots. Sometimes that’s by using an external flash, and sometimes that’s by simply reflecting the available light (or with a flash) to specific areas of your subject.
  • 5 light reflectors in 1 (43 inches diameter when opened)
  • Gold, black, silver, white and translucent, 5 most popular colors
  • Perfect for both studio and outdoor photography, easy to carry
