Nikon D500. Just wanted to get people's opinion on this camera. Assuming it will come out before the Ursa mini 4.6k around March

This is a BMD forum. Discussion of other cameras belongs in the "Off Topic" section.

I don't see the D500 as anywhere near the level of BM cameras. 8-bit color, and it only records video for 30 minutes at a time in segmented files. I'm sure it's great for photos, but I think Canon and Nikon are on the completely wrong path when it comes to multi-purpose DSLRs.

Virtually all buyers of BMD cameras are not getting them for photos. We either have a separate camera for photos or don't both with photography.

But if you want a camera which leans more towards photography than filming, then get the Nikon D500!
(if you want one which leans more in the other way, get a Samsung NX1 or Sony A7r mk2 or Panasonic GH4)

Or if you want a pure photography camera... D500 would be amazing! Or D750 (which I could have both!).
