Nikon D7500 overview

  • 1Description

Designed as a true all-arounder, the Nikon D7500 is a DX-format DSLR offering a versatile feature-set to appeal to photographers and videographers alike. Based on a 20.9MP CMOS sensor and EXPEED 5 image processor, this multimedia maven avails an 8 fps continuous shooting rate for up to 100 consecutive JPEGS, a native sensitivity range to ISO 51,200 that can be expanded up to ISO 1,640,000, and 4K UHD video and time-lapse recording capabilities. Complementing the imaging capabilities is a 51-point Multi-CAM 3500FX II autofocus system, which features 15 cross-type points for fast performance and accurate subject tracking capabilities in a variety of lighting conditions.

Balancing the performance attributes, the D7500 is also characterized by its sleek profile and monocoque construction that is comfortable and easy to handle. This physical design is also fully weather-sealed to permit working in harsh environmental conditions. In addition to the pentaprism optical viewfinder, a rear 3.2" 922k-dot touchscreen is also featured, and has a tilting design to benefit working from high and low shooting angles. Additionally, SnapBridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi permit wireless transferring of photos and movies and remote control over the camera from linked mobile devices.

20.9MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor and EXPEED 5 Image Processor
The DX-format 20.9MP CMOS sensor is paired with the EXPEED 5 image processor to provide an esteemed mixture of high sensitivity, nuanced image quality, and fast overall performance. At native values, a sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200 permits working in a broad array of lighting conditions, and can be further expanded to ISO 50-1640000 (Lo 1 to Hi 5) to handle the most challenging of situations. The mixture of resolution and sensor size also contributes to clean image quality and smooth color transitions with reduced noise throughout the sensitivity range.

In addition to benefitting image quality, the EXPEED 5 processor also affords a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including a top continuous shooting rate of 8 fps with full-time autofocus and exposure metering. Up to 100 JPEGs or 50 14-bit lossless compressed NEF files can be recorded in a single burst.
4K UHD Video Recording
Capable of recording more than just stills, the D7500 supports 4K UHD video recording at 30, 25, and 24 fps frame rates and Full HD/HD recording at up to 60 fps, along with the ability to save movie files to the in-camera memory cards or as an uncompressed file, with 4:2:2 sampling, to an optional external recorder via HDMI out. For maintained quality and versatility in how your movies look, three image area options are available:
  • 4K UHD movie image format is an area that provides a 1.5x increase in the effective focal length of the lens in use and is reserved for 4K 3840 x 2160 recording.
  • 1.3x-based movie image area provides a 1.3x crop of the DX sensor, and is used for recording Full HD and HD video.
  • DX-based movie image format utilizes the full width of the DX-format sensor, and is used to record Full HD 1920 x 1080 and HD 1280 x 720 video. This setting is well-suited for shallow depth of field effects and provides the widest field of view.

As with still shooting, the wide range of sensitivities is available for recording in low- and bright-light conditions, ranging from expanded ISO 100-1640000, and sensitivity values are manually adjustable via the dedicated movie-shooting menu. Also, a video-optimized Flat Picture Control mode can be used during recording to flatten the overall contrast curve for more control during post-production and color grading.

Benefitting handheld shooting, an Electronic Vibration Reduction feature can be used during Full HD and HD recording, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake across three axes to control horizontal, vertical, and rotational movements. Additionally, Active D-Lighting can also be employed during Full HD/HD shooting to preserve highlight and shadow detail when working in high-contrast situations.

In regard to handling, a dedicated power aperture button (Pv) makes it possible to achieve smooth, continuous exposure transitions when switching from light to dark areas and Auto ISO can also be used to maintain consistent brightness when working in changing light situations. Audio recording can be handled using the built-in stereo microphone or an optional external mic can be added via the 3.5mm stereo jack for greater control over quality. Regardless if using the in-camera mic or an external mic, audio levels can be adjusted in 20 increments and live monitoring is possible via the headphone jack.

In addition to straight movie recording, time-lapse recording, for up to 9999 consecutive frames shot over the course of up to one week, is also possible with up to 4K UHD/30p output from the camera.
51-Point Multi-CAM 3500FX II Autofocus System
Supporting the imaging capabilities of the D7500 is an apt autofocus system that employs up to 51 distinct points, with options available to use 9, 21, or all 51 points depending on the situation, with AF detection sensitivity down to -3 EV. 15 cross-type points are also integrated within this array to provide even greater accuracy to centrally-located subjects. Benefitting the use of telephoto lenses and teleconverters, the center-most point is also sensitive down to an aperture value of f/8. 3D Tracking, a part of the intelligent Scene Recognition System, also works to benefit maintained focusing on moving subjects for greater accuracy when shooting at high continuous shooting speeds. Furthermore, Single-point AF, Dynamic-area AF (with 9, 21, or 51 points selectable), 3D-tracking (using all 51 points), and Auto-area AF modes are also available, as well as Group-Area AF that treats smaller groups of AF points as a single point for a wider field of recognition, and is well-suited to tracking faces or other detailed subjects.

When working in live view, for either still or movie shooting, a contrast-based AF system is employed to acquire focus precisely and can function in continuous, full-time servo mode to better-suit working with moving subjects.
Body Design
  • A large 3.2" 922k-dot touchscreen is available for intuitive live view shooting and playback control, and it features a tilting design to benefit working from high and low shooting angles.
  • A bright pentaprism optical viewfinder offers 100% frame coverage and a 0.94x magnification for clear, realistic viewing in any lighting condition.
  • The monocoque-type carbon-fiber construction is lightweight, durable, and incorporates a deep right hand grip for comfortable and stable handling, making it especially suitable for all-day shooting with longer zooms or telephoto lenses.
  • Weather-sealed design benefits working in trying environmental conditions.
  • Shutter unit has been tested for up to 150,000 cycles for long-lasting use and an integrated shutter monitor automatically calculates the duration between front and rear curtain movements with each exposure to automatically correct for any variances.
  • Built-in pop-up flash is available for additional illumination when working in low-light conditions. A hot shoe can also be used in conjunction with an optional external Speedlight, and, if used with the optional WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller, the camera can control up to three groups of SB-5000 Speedlights via radio.
  • The included EN-EL15a rechargeable lithium-ion battery is CIPA-rated to last for approximately 950 shots per charge.
SnapBridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Supporting a wealth of sharing and tagging possibilities, the D7500 features built-in SnapBridge connectivity to enable seamless transfer of imagery as well as remote shooting capabilities. BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and Wi-Fi enables communication between the camera and a smart device. Additionally, the mobile device can remotely trigger the shutter and display a live view image from the camera to enable working from a distance.
Scene Recognition System and Exposure Metering
The intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering III utilizes a 180k-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors, to quickly determine an accurate exposure and white balance setting to best render the scene at hand. The information gathered is also checked against onboard reference images to ensure consistency from image to image in regard to exposure, white balance, i-TTL flash settings, and subject-tracking AF performance.
Other Camera Features
  • RAW (NEF) files can be recorded as lossless compressed or compressed at either 12 or 14-bit depth.
  • Automated exposure bracketing is possible for up to 9 frames with 1/3 or 1/2 EV steps between each frame.
  • Active D-Lighting helps to preserve both highlight and shadow details when working in contrast-rich scenarios, such as backlit lighting. Utilizing the EXPEED 5's processing power, a more controlled image will be produced with brightness values closer to how they are naturally seen.
  • Auto ISO sensitivity control allows you to select a minimum shutter speed at which camera shake can be controlled from and then will automatically set the ISO value in order to best render the scene. A maximum sensitivity level can also be set in order to maintain overall noise levels.
  • Spot White Balance control for live view shooting makes setting the white balance as easy as pointing to the area in the frame that should be white.
  • MC-DC2 port enables the connection of optional accessories, such as remote shutter releases.
  • Multiple Exposure mode lets you combine up to 10 different exposures into a single image, with the ability to save all 10 separate shots or just the composite image.

Nikon D7500 reviews

D7500 DSLR Camera (Body Only) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big upgrade from my D5100 I was trying to choose between this camera and the D500. I am glad I went with the D7500 due to the lower cost and smaller package. I routinely take my camera on hikes and didn't want the extra weight and bulk. The lack of a 2nd memory card slot is not an issue for me as I mainly shoot for a hobby and only do work for customers every now and then. I like the deep grip and feel of this camera in my hand, the build quality feels solid. The auto focus is on point and I get way more keepers that are in focus than with my D5100. Low light is great with this camera and I can gets shots I didn't think would be possible with the amount of available light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super addition to the 7*** series! Disclaimer: I am not a professional, rather, I consider myself a serious amateur. My arsenal consists of a D810, D750 & D500. Since I shoot a lot of birds and wildlife and sometimes need two bodies at once, I wanted a crop sensor body to use as an extra / backup for the D500. This camera far exceeded my expectations and doesn't lose much when compared with the D500. There are a few compromises, but nothing to quibble about - and the photographs are quite impressive! I am delighted with this camera and am becoming comfortable with the trend toward less megapixels and better frame-rate and focus acquisition. Bottom line - I love this camera!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera upgrade from my old D7000 I'm very impressed with the D7500. The images are tack sharp with great resolution and the 4K video is very good, especially when played on a 4K monitor or TV. Its light and for the most part has the same menu settings and arrangement as the older Nikons. My only beef, and hopefully it will be resolved soon, is that the NEF raw files are at this point unreadable in either Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop. They work fine in the free Nikon editing software. The JEPG files still work well in the Adobe softwares, and I'm looking forward to an update from them that will allow NEF raw file access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Better Than Expected It was a big decision to stick with the DX format instead of going full frame. I worried about the loss of quality, but I wasn't ready to replace all my lenses quite yet, so I gambled on the D7500. Oh man, was it ever the right call! I am continuously stunned by the images that come out of the camera! Even simple auto mode test shots blow my former Nikon away! If you are considering the D7500 or any other DX format Nikon, THIS IS THE ONE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Prosumer APS-C Nikon Body Ever The problem with most consumer/prosumer camera bodies is the buyers have to accept compromises in performance when the manufacturers meet price targets. The compromises in this camera, only one SDXC card slot and it will no longer meter AI lenses. For everything else this camera works, and works well. I have had this about 2 weeks and have had a chance to shoot about 1000 frames, including my daughter's pinning ceremony. Since there are no RAW converters yet for the D7500 files I have been working with JPEGs. I shot with ISOs as high as 12800 with usable results. Aside from that, the camera focuses quickly, (I use group auto focus and single point), it can shoot at a legitimate 8 frames a second and has a buffer that will last six seconds shooting RAW. This is a great all around camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and not so good I bought this D7500 to replace my D7100 because I was not very happy with the video capabilities of the 7100. It was either buy a new, dedicated video camera and carry two different cameras or upgrade the DSLR. I am happy with the video quality and processor speed of the 7500 for action photos but I had to give up several things that aren't that important and one that is so critical I'm thinking of returning the camera! The faster processing comes at a cost of battery life but that's OK I always carry extra batteries. There is only one memory card slot instead of two but I don't see that as a big issue, I carry extra cards and it appears this camera is able to connect to your smart device and I assume that means you could use the card in your phone or tablet as extra storage? The one kicker for me is the depth of field preview ability is gone and this is something I use for almost every shot! Every Nikon I have ever owned including the Nikkormatt I bought in 1973 had depth of field preview! How hard is this to leave in and why would it even be dropped from this camera?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! Most reviews thus far seem to focus on comparing spec sheets so I'll try to focus on actually using the camera. I had waited for the D7500 to arrive before upgrading from my venerable D80. I suspect many of my observations are true of other cameras in the D7xxx line but I have no experience with those. My primary driver to upgrade was the extended ISO sensitivity of the newer models. I take a lot of pictures at choral concerts (that my wife directs) which tend to have low light levels and also require some zoom to make the shots interesting. This led to compromise with the D80, attempting to get decent images with a slower shutter while the subjects were moving. There were many could-have-been-great shots that were unusable. I am completely amazed at what the D7500 can do at low light levels. I can go out at late dusk and take pictures that appear as if they were taken at mid-day, and have the shutter at 125-250 with plenty of ISO to spare. The variety of auto focus options offer plenty of flexibility for different shooting scenarios, as well as the light sensitivity area options. The display on the back is crystal clear and unlike the D80, Nikon makes great use of it for displaying and changing the various settings. It's far easier than trying to decipher the small symbols on the top display near the shutter release - which is still there if preferred. Combined with the new 18-140 lens in the kit, the speed of focus makes it easy to zoom and capture great shots quickly in auto mode when required. In fact there are two auto modes - with and without flash - something I wished for on the D80. More importantly the D7500 makes it quite easy to experiment with scenes and customized settings. You can select a preset scene and then modify from there as you like, and easily see what's going on from the back display. With the D80 I had trouble remembering what all the little scene symbols meant, but the D7500 offers a menu to scroll through. RAN OUT OF SPACE - LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really awesome technology I already have a Nikon D7000. This D7500 is light years ahead of the D7000. The ISO goes so high I can now take photos in the dim lit high school stadiums and keep my shutter speeds fast where I want them. The noise is no worse than the high settings for the D7000. I really like the blue tooth connection to my photo which allows me to control the shutter on my camera and see what the photos look like. I can even download either full or reduced size copies of selected photos or all of them. Nikon has simplified the interval timer function so it is easier to use. One thing I was disappointed in was that Photoshop does not have the ability to handle the D7500 RAW file yet. Hopefully they will not take long to update their software. Overall I like the changes Nikon made and would recommend this camera for the serious amateur.
