We’ve all been hearing since the day it was launched that the Nikon D500 is really fast. But how fast it really is? Photographer Tom Miles came up with a video called The Moment of Impact where he put the Nikon D500 against Tom Duquesnoy, former MMA champion with the nickname ‘Fire Kid‘.
The idea was that Duquesnoy would smash things with fast kicks and punches and D500 would try to capture the moments of impacts as accurately as it can. As you can see, the results were simple stunning. The D500 shot 10 frames per seconds. Lighting was controlled through Nikon’s Creative Lighting System. See the video at the bottom of this article to catch the full action and how it was captured.
