No longer must amateur photographers choose between the convenience of a digital camera and the quality of a thirty five millimeter SLR camera. Choose a Nikon D500 and you can have the convenience of both.
For the price, this is a great quality digital camera which offers the best of both worlds. It is capable of taking four frames per second and gives 12. 3 megapixel photographs. In addition, the camera can be used in video mode to record short video clips.
Nikon has built nineteen different auto-exposure modes into this powerful but compact digital camera. This allows you to shoot pictures in all sorts of lighting conditions from full sun to candle light.
The camera also has an optional GPS capability and can label each shot with longitude and latitude. It also can recover the time by satellite so that you record all the information about a photograph when it is taken.
The camera offers editing of the digital shots on the camera screen. If there are shots that cannot be edited, then they can be disposed in order to free up the memory for even more new shots each day.
The rechargeable battery that comes with this camera will allow you to take over five hundred shots without having to recharge. This makes it perfect for family vacations and other special events. You will be able to take all the shots needed for the day so that you are able to dispose of those that are less than perfect.
You photos are stored on either SD or SDHC memory cards. The SDHC cards offer even more memory than the SD cards.
As other 35 mm cameras, this one allows you to interchange the lenses and you will find all three major lens companies make compatible lenses for Nikon DSLR cameras. The built in flash is perfect for all those low light conditions. There are also settings for all light levels in between.
If you want to review your shots, you will be able to do so with either a slide show or using thumbnail views. This gives even easier access to any shot you wish to view. It is a great way to choose which shots you want to print or download.
Perhaps the best news about this digital SLR camera is the price. Nikon offers this camera at about six hundred and fifty dollars. This is only slightly more than you would pay for a higher end entry level SLR in a film camera and not that much more than an entry level digital camera.
