I saw the new Nikon D500 up close last night and here is my first hands-on look at it. My first impressions is that it is a huge win for Nikon. All the specs look great.
We’ve got some questions about how well the cropped 4K is going to work and the Bluetooth file transfer, but the ergonomics are awesome and it’s actually a very light camera. It’s a big deal for enthusiasts and pros for sure.
Oh, and I found out the real reason behind why Nikon went with the D500 name instead of the D400 name. And, it’s not some superstitious thing either.
Watch the video above and let me know what you think.
As I mention in the video, here’s the link to the Nikon D500 announcement and below are some more hands-on pics of it.
