2016-06-15A minor update was made to the Nikon D500 Setup Guide Spreadsheet v1.2, a companion to the Nikon D500 Experience e-book guide:

The recommended settings for Custom Setting a1 – AF-C Priority Selection, were updated to the “Release” setting for action situations. This is based on the recommendation of Nikon as well as the experience of sports and wildlife photographers.

2016-07-21 – In Section 1.3 on Memory Cards, I wrote “Users have reported issues with the Lexar 1000x and 2000x cards (which are not found on the Nikon-approved list).” This was in the paragraph on XQD cards, but it is actually referring to 1000x and 2000x Lexar SD cards.

2016-07-22 – Version 1.1A couple minor typos fixed.

2016-08-31 – D500 Firmware Update and SnapBridge for iOS

The SnapBridge app for iOS (iPhone/iPad) is finally available. You can download it here:

Firmware Version 1.10 released, which can be downloaded here, and includes the following camera updates:

Added support for the iOS version of SnapBridge.
Changed some help text.
Fixed the following issues:
– Images would not display correctly if playback zoom was used during image review.
– The focus point display would not light if the shutter-release button was pressed halfway after the standby timer had expired.
– The camera would stop responding if a command dial was used in the Custom Setting Menu > f Controls > f1 Custom control assignment > “Movie record button + Dials” menu.
– If an option other than Off was selected for Active D-Lighting in the Photo Shooting Menu, pictures taken with an optional flash unit in auto aperture (AA), non-TTL auto (A), or distance-priority manual (GN) flash mode would be underexposed.
