From the moment you hold the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 close, you’ll understand the world of possibilities it opens up, with a 24-500mm*1 f/2.8-5.6 ultra-high-power zoom NIKKOR lens, high-speed autofocus (AF), and an impressive ISO range of 160-12800. Go wide and capture the most intricate of cityscapes, or get up close to the players on the pitch, right from the grandstand. Beyond its spectacular image quality, the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 also offers 4K UHD/30p movie capabilities. Take your work to the world instantly with SnapBridge, a constant Bluetooth connection to your smart device that provides automatic transfer of pictures as you shoot. When it comes to everyday photography for professionals, the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 knows one thing: your pursuit for the shot never takes a backseat.



A photographer should never have to choose between spectacular image quality and convenient portability. The DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 is small, but it’s no slouch. It packs a highly sensitive 1 inch-type backside illumination CMOS image sensor with 20.8 effective megapixels and an EXPEED 6A image-processing engine. Communicate your vision across a wider range of situations – its remarkable ISO performance sweeps across a range of 160 to 12800. With the power to go from close to far with the 24-500mm*1 super-telephoto zoom lens, you can capture the winning run in the last inning or the subtle detail of a dress at a dance recital in all its glory. Designed for more than stills, the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 also supports 4K UHD/30p movies, so you can enjoy many of the same benefits that the DL series brings to still photography: superior resolution even for fine details, and superb reproduction of details at high ISO settings.



At the heart of the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 is a NIKKOR lens, an expression of perfection in craftsmanship and optical technology. The 24-500mm*1 f/2.8-5.6 ultra-high-power zoom NIKKOR lens brings distant subjects into clear view, obtaining edge-to-edge sharpness even at the super-telephoto position of 500mm*1. An aspherical Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element effectively compensates for chromatic aberration and distortion, working together with aspherical lens and ED glass elements to obtain beautiful images with minimized color fringing and distortion throughout the entire zoom range. A fluorine coat also provides protection against dust and dirt for easy maintenance, no matter where creative vision leads you.



Nail decisive shots of moving subjects with the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6’s hybrid autofocus (AF) system that instantly identifies subjects and automatically selects the appropriate AF method: either the 105-point phase-detection AF for outstanding acquisition performance when shooting fast-moving subjects, or the 171-point contrast-detect AF, which provides extremely accurate focusing even in dark situations. High speed continuous shooting with AF is assured at approximately 20 frames per second*3, so you can seize that photograph of wildlife bolting across a forest trail or a car chase hurtling through the city. Feel the power of freedom in every shot even when you’re on the move with its Dual Detect Optical VR, making capturing precise details under difficult lighting conditions or in super-telephoto shooting a breeze. For greater control over framing when shooting fast-moving and unpredictable subjects, take advantage of the camera’s SPORT VR mode that delivers a stable viewfinder image.



Share your best shots with SnapBridge, a new feature that automatically downloads your images to your smart device via a constant Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection. BLE maintains constant connection with minimal power, so you can continue shooting and sharing without significantly draining the batteries. SnapBridge also allows your smart device to access the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 when the camera is switched off. It even automatically archives your pictures onto Nikon Image Space*4.



Crafted with DSLR-style controls and menu structure, the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 feels as intuitive to operate as they are to shoot with. An approximately 2359k-dot electronic viewfinder combines crisp definition and high resolution for a clear view of the action, making it ideal for tracking moving subjects during telephoto shooting. Explore new viewpoints and frame images accurately from any angle with the 3-inch vari-angle touch-panel monitor, equipped with an approximately 1037k-dot OLED display for excellent visibility across the entire frame. Designed with an accessory shoe (ISO 518) that is compatible with a selection of accessories, the DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6 is a camera that evolves to meet your changing needs.
