B&H has the new Nikon D500 in stock and now shipping. For now, only the D500 kit with the 16-80mm lens is listed as in stock (the body-only is still listed as a pre-order). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
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. [Read more…]
Nikon shooters everywhere have been waiting oh so long for a replacement to the D300s. It’s been so long, I suppose Nikon just had to skip the D400 altogether and more straight to the D500.
According to this forums post (you’ll have to look past the pop-up ads), someone nabbed this shot of what appears to be a Nikon D60-sized DSLR with a flip screen LCD. You can even seen the Nikon label upside down on the panel’s LCD.
Something Awful forum member indyjb got the shot and claims that it comes from a commercial shoot “somewhere in Eastern Europe.” indyjb also claims to have plenty more pics of the mystery-DSLR as well. He says:
Correct me if I’m wrong, but as far as I know there is not a Nikon DSLR with a flip screen.
I have more and better pictures if people are interested.
We’re interested. Please, do share.

Tentatively named Nikon D500 this is a 1.5x crop factor, pro/enthusiast spec camera with weather sealing, liveview, built-in flash and video mode.
Additional specs are claimed to include the following:
- 15.1 megapixels
- 24 fps video
- full manual control in video
No source is cited; however, these specs and release date seem viable.
Stay tuned for the latest when we have it.
