  1. I just picked up the Pixel Vertax Vertical Grip for my D500 last week. A great investment. Instead of paying for a bunch of those ENEL15 batteries, I picked up a set of rechargeable AAs for under $20 and it really adds a lot of life.

    I do a lot of timelapses, so the need for me to be able to keep the camera running without touching it to remove and replace batteries is essential and that battery grip rocks.

  2. Hey Tony, there is a bit of bad editing at the 13 minute mark…when you refer to the f1.8 aperture opening, you showed the smallest aperture opening and when you referred to the higher f stops, (f16 – f22) you showed the widest opening. I know its the editing…still love the overview…Got my D500 on Thursday 18th August, 2016…the tutorial came out in good time…helpful.

  3. My only consideration and "disagreement" with the suggested gear is the ultra wide angle lens choice. I would suggest the 11-20 f2.8 tokina over the 10-24 Nikon. But of course that is open for discussion.

  4. Hi tony, huge fan of yours. Just quick question, should I go for nikon d610 with sigma 70-200mm f2.8 or d7200 with sigma 50-100mm f1.8 Mainly for outdoor portrait photography. I want my photos to be tack sharp. Thank you!

  5. Great Tutorial Tony and tonight I've just purchased a couple of your books. One comment on timelapse, you can set that in the video submenu as well and it gives you all the same settings as single shot however it creates a timelapse video for immediate playback.

  6. This is amazing! Who else puts this kind of work into a FREE tutorial? A timeline of contents?? Thanks for the in depth and very useful tutorial.

  7. Tony your content is very good, when you describe your books, maybe the phrase "cheap" isn't the best, maybe use, great value, inexpensive, reasonable, just a thought that would match the quality of the content you produce, which again is very good

  8. Thnak you For this Tutorial,

    I bough this Camera a month ago, and i'm using it with a Nikkor f3.5-5.6-18 to 200 and is this lens Combination is Ok but no the greatest I think I bougth your Stuning fotography guide and learning a lot from you Thank you. i will watch this tutorial several times until I really learn this camera well.

  9. Hi Tony. I am considering the D500 because it has built-in automatic microfocus adjustment. Have you had a chance to test that feature? Does it work effectively? I have been frustrated with some lenses on my Nikon D750 and especially the D810 requiring adjustment. It's not that much work to do the adjustment once, but, it screws up use of third party lenses because the microfocus database in camera seems to randomly apply changes (e.g. it applies my MFA changes for Nikon 105mm f/2.8 to my Sigma 24-105mm f/4. Argh!)

    Thanks for your great work.

  10. Good informative video, thank you. I use a Nikkor 300mm f4 PF VR + Nikon 1.4 TC 111 with my D500 for wildlife. This combination is incredibly lightweight but provides excellent results. The D500 is brilliant. It is my first Nikon and I am thoroughly impressed (I have owned 7 Canon cameras and 4 Olympus in the past). Just love the 300mm PF VR as well. This combination perfectly compliments my Olympus EM1 system.
