D500 DX D SLR Wins Award For Nikon

Although a Canon or Nikon victory in most camera categories is the norm, Nikon do have a fine flagship DX format D SLR in the D500, so a worthy winner. I think.

Although, while I understand for marketing people and the world they live in, the term ‘prosumer’, I am not quite sure what that is meant to mean in the real world. But I digress.

A few teething troubles with batteries have been reported by some, but in the main, I think it will in the fullness of time, be looked back upon, as one of the best DX format models at its introduction for the professional or serious enthusiast.

Here we go with the details…

EISA comments for Nikon D500 – winner of the European Prosumer DSLR Camera 2016-2017 award

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.

EISA is the unique association of roughly 50 major photo, video, audio, home theatre, and mobile electronics magazines from 20 European countries. Each year, EISA chooses the best products released in Europe over the past year from a number of categories of imaging, audio and mobile devices.
