Nikon D500

£121.00 for 3 days

The Nikon D500 could be the most long-awaited camera ever. Rumours of an imminent D300S replacement (assumed to be called the D400 back then) have been circulating since 2011 at least; but here we are in mid 2016 and it's finally here.

And Nikon seem to have confirmed their commitment to DX format cameras for professional users. As you'd expect this is pretty much state of the art in every respect: 153 focus points with the same blazing fast autofocus system as in the D5, 10 frames per second, 4k video, Bluetooth, WiFi, tilting LCD touchscreen monitor, ... plus the rugged build quality you'd expect from a professional DSLR. At the time of writing (mid 2016) It's the best all-round action action camera with a crop sensor, and for sports/wildlife photographers it's a serious alternative to big cameras like the D5.

We can't realistically list all the detailed specifications of the camera here, so if you're interested you'll find them on the Nikon UK website - here.

What's in the box? Quite a lot. Camera. Strap. Two genuine Nikon EN-EL15 batteries. Battery charger with mains lead. 16GB Sandisk Extreme SD card. USB cable. User manuals on CD. Have we forgotten anything? We don't think so!
