Nikon 100th Anniversary countdown: “Nikon D500 and Nikon SB-5000 Speedlights with Radio Control” … In January 2016 Nikon released the D500 and the First DX camera capable of shooting 10 FPS. It has the same industry defining AF system as D810, D750, and D5 … and is loaded with 20 MP DX, 4K video, and Touch Screen (love it)… and it accommodates the NEW Nikon SB-5000 Speedlights with Radio Control ( love it-love it !! )
I found that the D500 with cropped sensor is fantastic for SPORTS Action and Wildlife photography. When combining the D500 lightweight body with the NIKKOR 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 or NIKKOR 200-500mm f5.6 it becomes an easily hand held package which makes it easier to “pan” when following birds in flight or fast moving erratic action of any kind.
For this image I manually underexposed the sunset by -1.3 stops and then illuminated the Jet Skier by using 4 Nikon SB-5000 Speedlights located on the dock about 90 feet from the athlete … ISO2500, 1/2500 at f8 with 4 SB-5000 Speedlights each at FULL Power. @nikonusa #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikonhistory #Nikon100 #nikonanniversary #sportsphotography #watersports #jetski #sunset #stormclouds
