    Re: What the heck is wrong with the D500 and Nikon?

    Had the same issue. Airplane mode ON.
    VR on the lens to OFF.
    Also give it some charging cycles and youíll see the more times you charge it, the better it will get.

    No with either my d500 or d7200. Both with nikon grips and batteries. sandisk cards in both too.
    I have owned 6 other nikon bodies and all have been great re battery drain.

    Well, D500 uses up a battery faster then the D7200. Owned both. But I bring extra batteries and sometimes use my battery grip. Great cameras.

    Try it with a SD card rather than the XQD card. I think others have this problem with certain XQD cards.
    Also, are you using a 3rd party grip? The d500 is rather quirky re 3rd party accessories.

    @bandit993 sorry to hear about your problems. Just wondering if you have tried either a different battery or a different charger? I read an account from a D500 user who solved his problem just by using a different charger. I'm not sure why it worked, but it seemed to for him.

    I love my D500 and get well over 2000 shots from a charge. I also get great IQ. Maybe you just need to get yours replaced under warranty.

    If I had issues like this I'd be back at the camera shop looking for assistance.
    I have had no issues with my D500 and prefer it to the D7100.
    I did find that it is more fussy about batteries than my other Nikons.

    There are many different Photo related Youtube video-bloggers, some have more to say than others - and some you have to get past their attitude to hear what they offer.

    I have had my D500 for over a year with ZERO problems. On a 1 to 10 scale I would give my D500 a 15. I have been shooting cameras since 1970 and I have never been as impressed with a camera as I am with this one and no I am not just saying it because I own one, this camera is great!!!
    Remember, before you post a picture, "You are known by what you show, not by what you throw".

    I decided many years ago I was going to have either
    a really good day or sometimes slip to just a good day. I refuse to have bad ones!!!

    Well thats rubbish as an A9 with an 85 1.4 is heavier than a D500 with the equivalent lens ... The bodies of Sony may be lighter but the glass is heavier ...

    No issues with my D500, seems you have some issue with youtrs ...

    I would keep the 500 however I am going to be trading it in for the 850 just for more MP, no other reason.
