Legendary NIKKOR optics: edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the zoom range

Legendary NIKKOR optics: edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the zoom range

The Nikon DL24-500 is proof that you don’t need to miss the action when you’re on the go. Equipped with a high-performance NIKKOR 24-500mm f/2.8-5.6 lens, this camera delivers perfectly rendered high-resolution images whether you’re shooting wide or closing the distance. The broad focal range of 24-500mm (35mm equivalent) puts diverse perspectives at your disposal, while the bright f/2.8-5.6 aperture enables pleasing bokeh, clear low-light shots and distinctive subject/background separation. With such a broad focal length range, optical design is key and this lens includes an aspherical extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass element as well as aspherical lens elements and ED glass elements. As a result, colour fringing, distortions and chromatic aberrations are minimised throughout the zoom range. In addition, the lens boasts Nikon’s fluorine coating, which actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality. This coating also makes it easier to clean the glass without damaging the surface.

Compact not compromised: serious reach, and the image quality to make it worthwhile

True versatility used to mean a heavy lens, and a heavy camera. Now the Nikon DL24-500 gives you a new option. Whether the shooting opportunity in front of you calls for wide-angle or super-telephoto, you can capture Nikon-quality 20.8 MP stills in JPEG or NEF (RAW) format, and shoot beautifully detailed 4K/UHD movies at 30p/25p. The camera’s 1-inch backside-illuminated CX-format CMOS sensor makes the most of every pixel to sharply capture fine details and render clean, crisp images. Low light situations are handled exceptionally well thanks to a standard ISO range of 160 to 12800. Plus the camera’s built-in ND filter reduces the amount of incoming light to enhance creative possibilities when shooting at slow shutter speeds. Full HD video is fully supported and the camera offers clean HDMI output for footage shot at up to 1920×1080 pixels. You can also capture photos while filming. Whether it’s movies or stills, Nikon’s powerful new EXPEED 6A processing engine keeps you shooting at speed, and improves noise reduction when shooting at high ISOs.

A true Nikon: familiar DSLR-like control

A true Nikon: familiar DSLR-like control

With a control layout designed to be familiar to Nikon DSLR users, the Nikon DL24-500 ensures you can keep your eye on the action. This is a camera that puts everything right where you’re used to finding it. Even the lens is detailed with the signature gold NIKKOR ring. On the top panel of the camera body, the PSAM mode dial is augmented by a dedicated ±5 EV exposure compensation dial. The camera boasts a rotary multi selector (with i-button), and the all-important function (fn) button. Menu design will also be familiar. The built-in high-resolution 2359k-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF) offers clear visibility and high-contrast information display. If you’re used to controlling aspects like focus and aperture from the lens, you’ll appreciate the customisable control ring on the lens barrel. Settings that can be assigned to the control ring include shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance and Picture Controls. You can also use the control ring to select manual-priority AF and focus manually while shooting with AF.

More room for more kit: flashes, microphones, filters and lens hoods

The Nikon DL24-500 is equipped with an ISO 518-compliant accessory shoe, which accepts trusted Nikon DSLR accessories. Various Nikon Speedlights are compatible with the hot shoe, including the portable SB-500. With a dedicated high-intensity LED on board, the SB-500 is the perfect partner for movie shooting. Beyond Speedlights, the camera is compatible with Nikon’s ME-1 stereo microphone, a dedicated lens filter and lens hood. You can also protect the camera’s sturdy good looks with Nikon’s messenger-style compact system bag.

Complete control: in-camera tools

A range of creative and practical features can accommodate both your preferred style of shooting and your creative vision. In Pre-Capture mode, the camera begins shooting when the shutter-release button is half pressed, and continues to shoot after the button has been released. You can opt to save the entire sequence or just select your favourite shots.¹ When it comes to reviewing images, an auto delete function streamlines the workflow process for continuous shooting. Designed to reduce the time it takes to check through sequences of shots taken at high frame rates, this function allows you to mark shots for automatic deletion if images are blurred, faces are hidden or eyes are closed. For greater creative control over your image, Picture Controls, inherited from Nikon DSLRs, let you apply and adjust suites of settings keyed to your shooting intentions. You can take complete control over sharpening, contrast, brightness, hue, and saturation when shooting stills and video.
