New Nikon D500 Added to Rentals

Nikon D500 Ready For Rental

I am very pleased to announce that the new Nikon D500 is available for rental. Generally speaking when you start shooting the full frame camera, you don’t want to go back and shoot in APSC size sensor. I had the same idea, but Nikon D500 is a different beast! Its speed, Dynamic Range and Noise management are par with a full frame camera! Here is a little more information from Nikon Canada:

Flagship Power, DX Agility.

Meet the new DX flagship, the Nikon D500. At first glance, it may seem unimposing—but contained within a streamlined camera body is a veritable powerhouse of processing power and technological advances. The D500 is ready to go wherever your passion leads you, capturing everything with stunning clarity, speed and resolution. From busy, low-light cityscapes to thrilling wildlife scenes and fast action shots, the D500 is the ideal companion to your wanderlust. Marvel at the clarity of its cinematic 4K UHD video. Be amazed at its ruggedness and versatility. And, once you’ve captured your gorgeous photos, admire them on the D500’s high resolution tilt touchscreen display and share them via the built-in SnapBridge (Wi-Fi® + Bluetooth) capabilities. No matter what you shoot, you can be sure that the Nikon D500 will be up to the task, time and time again.

Why use an APSC sensor?

The main reason for shooting in APSC size sensor is the Crop Factor. As the Nikon D500 has a slightly smaller sensor, it uses the centre part of the image that lens creates, Which is the sweet spot and the sharpest part. On the other note you get a 1.5X magnification from the lens focal length. In short a 200mm telephoto lens works as a 300mm lens. This is the biggest advantage of APSC size sensor over the full frame sensor.

Many Wildlife and Sport photographers prefer this crop factor and use the feature to capture a closer and sharper image.

The disadvantages of a cropped sensor are, lack of Dynamic Range, slower focusing, and more noise in high ISO shooting. Somehow Nikon addressed these issues completely in the new D500. Here are some samples that I took using D500.
