The well-received DSLR since its launch earlier this year is once again a proud recipient for one of the highest European technology and photography honours
Johannesburg – South Africa, 17 August 2016 – The Nikon D500, the flagship DX-format DSLR, is an honoured recipient of the European Prosumer DSLR Camera 2016-2017 award presented by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), as announced by Nikon Middle East FZE today.
This accolade makes it the third major award the D500 has received this year, the initial two being TIPA Awards 2016 Best APS-C DSLR Expert award presented by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), and the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016 that was sponsored by Germany’s Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen.
- Summary of EISA comments on the Nikon D500 as the recipient 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*1, 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-format 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.
