GITEX Shopper: These are Nikon’s top 5 cameras

The fifth day of GITEX Shopper continues with thousands of people flocking to Dubai World Trade Center to catch the best deals at the gigantic event, which is on until September 30.

AMEinfo spoke to Nikon, one of the retailers participating in the huge exhibition, to find out which camera models are selling the best.

 Here are Nikon’s top five cameras with their prices:


Price: AED12,999

The D850 delivers both speed and resolution. It is equipped with a powerful 45.7-megapixel CMOS sensor that guarantees a balance of high-speed and good resolution when combined with up to 9-fps1 continuous shooting mode backed by its EXPEED 5 image-processing engine.

Thanks to a remarkable dynamic range of native ISO 64 to 25600 and an extended low metering limit, auto exposure (AE) shooting is enabled in low-light and a variety of situations. Further complemented by NIKKOR’s extensive selection of high-performance interchangeable lenses, the model has a combination of tools to capture crucial moments.

Flexibility in the selection of RAW size options can also be tailored accordingly to the needs of the user.


Price: D7500 + 18-140 VR: AED 5,999

The D7500, with vibrant 4K UHD video support to capture cinematic adventures, is equipped with a high-performance EXPEED 5 image-processing engine and an updated Nikon DX-format 20.9-megapixel CMOS sensor, a combination that creates images with superior definition and reduced noise even at higher ISO values.

Both are inherited from the Nikon D500, allowing photographers to embrace their full creative potential and freeing them from the constraints of challenging shooting environments. The new Nikon DX-format sensor also has a native ISO range of 100 to 512001 to provide minimal noise in low-light scenarios.

The latest DSLR also seizes the picture-perfect moments with a high-speed continuous capture of up to 50 shots2 with each burst of approximately 8 frames-per-second(14-bit RAW images with lossless compression applied).


Price: AED 7,999 + AED 1000 Cash Back (promotion running till the end of GITEX)

The D500 is the long-awaited new high-end model in Nikon’s line of APS-C format SLR cameras. It offers a goodt balance between performance and price, inheriting basic features such as its AF sensor from the D5, Nikon’s 35mm format “full-size” flagship model, yet available at an affordable price.

The D500 can be considered a camera that makes the APS-C format more appealing with its tough and durable body, high-definition viewfinder, and more than sufficient continuous shooting performance, all worthy of a high-end model. It is equipped with a superior AF system comprised of focus points that cover a broad range of the frame and capable of sharp and clear capture of moving subjects.

In these days, though the development of mirrorless cameras is remarkable the D500 reminds us of the appeal of SLR cameras.


Price: D5600 + 18-55 VR: AED 3,499 + AED 300 Cash Back (promotion running till the end of GITEX)

The D5600 is equipped with a range of features that encourages users to capture and communicate their memories and favourite moments. Featuring a vari-angle LCD monitor that flips out and rotates, greater creative freedom in photography expressions is made possible.

The touch screen operation that is a perennial favourite with the D5000-series has been further enhanced with the addition of a crop function for use during playback zoom, and a frame advance bar that lets users scroll through images in playback mode easily.

Time-lapse movie function from the more advanced Nikon D7200 has also been incorporated into this DSLR, providing users an opportunity to experiment and expand their visual storytelling with stunning time-lapse videos.

In addition, a constant connection between the D5600 and a smart device is possible using the SnapBridge app and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology. Still images captured are automatically transferred to the paired smart device, and users can upload and share high quality images in a seamless, integrated process.


Price: D3400 + 18-55 VR: AED 1,899 + AED 400 Cash Back (promotion running till the end of GITEX)

Designed for aspiring photographers and users accustomed to shooting with their smart devices, the D3400 is the first entry-level DSLR enabled with SnapBridge connectivity via a built-in Bluetooth low energy technology that automatically transfers all photos*1 taken with the camera to a smart device*2 with simple, one-time set-up.

This eliminates the need to manually reconnect the camera to a smart device for each image transfer and connection is maintained even when the camera is turned off. Now sharing of images taken from the DSLR onto social media has never been easier.
