In this video, Nikon Canada's Mark Cruz provides an overview of the new D500 DX-format HD-SLR camera that's packed with pro-level features and extreme processing power in a body that's compact, durable and lightweight.
My first attempt took roughly 30 mins, I was close on raising a service request for help
1) I couldn't find the AF fine tuning button sequence in the user manual. There is no mentioning on auto AF fine tune in the D5 User Manual.
2) There was info in the internet that the button combination was (AF-mode) and (shutter release) - but that didn't work ...
3) When I figured out that it was covered in the downloaded Menu Guide, the right button combination to press is "AF-mode" and "Video-Rec"
4) Then the error message popped up every single time "Auto AF fine tune is not available at current focus setting" and didn't let me store the adjustment value
5) The culprit was the focus selector in LiveView mode: It has to be *exact" in the center of live view field. Putting it approximate there doesn't do the trick. Pressing the OK button in LiveView to put it perfectly in the center did the trick and brought me over the finish line that I could store the AF compensation value.
6) Now it is really a short and convenient process
TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that its Nikon DX-format digital SLR camera, the Nikon D500, is the recipient of the European Prosumer DSLR Camera 2016-2017 award presented by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA).
This makes the third major award the D500 has received this year, as it was also the recipient of the 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, sponsored by Germany's Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen.
EISA is the unique association of roughly 50 major photo, video, audio, home theater, and mobile electronics magazines from 20 European countries. Each year, EISA chooses the best products released in Europe over the past year from a number of categories of imaging, audio and mobile devices.
Reasons the D500 was selected as the recipient of the European Consumer DSLR Camera 2016-2017 award (summary of EISA comments)
Nikon's flagship DX-format digital SLR camera, the D500, which delivers high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 10 fps*, 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 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.
* Approximate frame rates when using continuous-servo AF, a shutter speed of 1/250 s or faster, and with other settings at default values.
- Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.11 to 1.12
• Fixed an issue that resulted in unreliable connections between the camera and the iOS 10.2 version of the SnapBridge app.
- Changes from Previous Versions
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.10 to 1.11
• Fixed an issue that prevented the touch-shutter option releasing the shutter when autofocus was used during live view with an SB-800 flash unit attached.
• Changed the items checked when image sensor cleaning was performed using the SETUP MENU > Clean image sensor > Clean now option. We recommend that you use this option to perform image sensor cleaning after the update is complete.
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.02 to 1.10
• Added support for the iOS version of SnapBridge.
• Changed some help text.
• Fixed the following issues:
- Images would not display correctly if playback zoom was used during image review.
- The focus point display would not light if the shutter-release button was pressed halfway after the standby timer had expired.
- The camera would stop responding if a command dial was used in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU > f Controls > f1 Custom control assignment > Movie record button + menu.
- If an option other than Off was selected for Active D-Lighting in the PHOTO SHOOTING MENU, pictures taken with an optional flash unit in auto aperture (AA), non-TTL auto (A), or distance-priority manual (GN) flash mode would be underexposed.
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.01 to 1.02
• Addressed an issue that sometimes caused errors with certain UHS-II SD memory cards. As we were able to confirm that these were read errors arising not in the camera but in the cards themselves, we addressed the issue with a work-around that switches temporarily to UHS-I mode when a card-side error occurs in UHS-II mode. The camera switches back to UHS-II mode when turned off and then on again or when the standby timer restarts. Card-side read errors may still occur after the update, albeit very infrequently.
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.00 to 1.01
• Fixed an issue that sometimes resulted in the options for SETUP MENU > Language not displaying correctly.
