The Nikon D500 is one of Nikon's first DSLR cameras that can record 4K UHD video (along with the Nikon D5) and Nikon Europe has just released the first 4K sample video from the D500 on YouTube.

The D500 can record 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) video at 24, 25, and 30 frames-per-second for up to 29 minutes 59 seconds. With the built-in HDMI port, you can also simultaneously record video internally to the XQD or SD card and to an external device. Time-lapse fans will also be pleased to know that the D500 can generate 4K UHD time-lapse movies right in the camera.

While 4K UHD video is the focus of this new video, the D500 has neat full HD video features as well, including built-in electronic vibration reduction to reduce the effects of camera shake in horizontal, vertical, and rotational directions when recording hand-held video. 1080p video can be recorded at up to 60 fps for 29 minutes 59 seconds.

Make sure to watch the video below in 4K resolution to see the capabilities of the D500.

When recording 4K video, you can even save frames as 8-megapixel JPEG Fine images. For more information on the Nikon D500, see here


The D500 will begin shipping in March and will cost just under $2,000 USD for the body-only configuration. If you're interested in preordering the Nikon D500, please help support our site and order through one of our affiliates below:
