DSLR – One of the best all-round workhouses you’ll ever own
- 20.9MP APS-C CMOS sensor
- 4K Video
- Pro features
We had to wait a long time for the D500, but boy was it worth the wait. The D500 took home our camera of the year award in 2016, with its fantastic set of features making it the deserved champion.
The camera sits right at the top of Nikon’s APS-C lineup, but don’t be fooled into thinking that this camera isn’t as good as its full-frame brethren - there are certain perks to using a smaller sensor, especially if you’re a sports or wildlife photographer.
This camera also enjoys many of the top-end benefits of the £5k Nikon D5, including the same processor and focusing system. There’s a super-high ISO value of 1,640,000 on offer, while 4K video recording is also on hand.
A standard 16-80mm lens is an option for this camera, which is a great way to start, but of course it’s also compatible with Nikon’s huge range of F-mount optics. With a wide array of on-hand controls, this is a camera that you can use in numerous scenarios and come away with wonderful photographs.Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £1,489.99 | Amazon.com from $1,996
