Megapixels:
A megapixel is one million pixels. It is commonly used to describe the resolution of digital cameras. For example, a 7.2 megapixel camera is capable of capturing roughly 7,200,000 pixels. The higher the megapixel number, the more detail the camera can capture. Therefore, the megapixel count is a significant specification to look for when buying a digital camera.

The 153-Point Multi-CAM 20K autofocus system comes in handy for bringing distant objects close to your field of view. The 3D Color Matrix Metering III makes use of an 180k-pixel RGB sensor for evaluating and analyzing all aspects within a scene, such as brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors for instantly determining the best exposure and white balance settings to be used.

Optics and Focus

The Nikon D500 DX-format Digital SLR camera is compatible with lenses that have a Nikon F lens mount and are capable of delivering amazing apertures and focal lengths. The 153-Point Multi-CAM 20K autofocus system comes in handy for bringing distant objects close to your field of view.
