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.

Included with the camera body is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR lens, which provides a 24-120mm equivalent focal length range. In addition to the bright maximum aperture range of f/2.8-4, which avails greater control over selective focus and enhanced low-light shooting capabilities, this DX-dedicated zoom also features 4-stop-effective VR with Sports Mode and a Silent Wave Motor for quick AF speeds. The optical design contains three aspherical elements and four extra-low dispersion glass elements for reduced chromatic and spherical aberrations and controlled distortion throughout the zoom range, as well as both Super Integrated and Nano Crystal Coatings to minimize flare and ghosting. Additionally, this zoom also sports fluorine-coated front and rear elements to guard against smudging, moisture, and dirt.

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 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.
AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR Lens
Included with the camera body is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR lens, which provides a 24-120mm equivalent focal length range that covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. A bright f/2.8-4 maximum aperture range benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords greater control over focus placement for selective focus shooting. The optical design of this DX-dedicated zoom incorporates three aspherical elements and four extra-low dispersion elements, which combine to reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range. This lens also incorporates a four stop-effective Vibration Reduction system to minimize the appearance of camera shake, and an electromagnetic aperture mechanism offers greater exposure stability at fast continuous shooting rates. Super Integrated and Nano Crystal Coatings have been applied to individual lens elements to control lens flare and ghosting, and both the front and rear elements also receive a fluorine coating to guard against smudging, moisture, and dust.
Other Camera Features

Nikon D7500 reviews

D7500 DSLR Camera with 16-80mm Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight enthusiast camera I enjoy landscape photography, taking photos of street scenes and Art Deco buildings. My favorite though, is to take photos of my grand kids.I bought the D7500 with the 16-80 lens to replace my D7000 with Nikkor18-200 lens. The battery life is great- I have taken about 800 shots without recharging. I do not miss a second SD slot- I have never had a card fail. I have shot with: aperture priority, auto, and various scene modes- all with excellent results. The camera focuses fast and accurately in various lighting conditions including on a early foggy morning and at twilight and in burst mode.The lens is very sharp and I love the VR combined with the ability to use a High ISO for low light hand held shots. By far the best part of the camera-lens combination is the light weight. I can carry the camera all day without feeling fatigue or pain from the strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best option for bundle As a non-professional photographer who previously owned a Nikon D60 I was looking to upgrade to a newer model w/more features. I couldn't be more impressed with the image quality that this camera offers and the 16-80mm lens is really first rate. For most of us who don't making a living doing portraits or selling images this camera is more than capable for capturing high quality images. I would highly recommend of any of the bundle options to go with the 16-80mm lens; a sizable price reduction on a lens if purchased separately costs over $1000.00 which allows you to capture spectacular images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, Fine Performance I opted for the D7500 over the D7200 because it is slightly smaller and lighter, slightly faster, and slightly better high ISO performance. �I don't need (and have never used) a grip nor a second slot. �What you get is a very solid, well mannered, and responsive camera. �I'm not sure what it is about the sensor (which I was familiar with from the D500), but it just seems to produce smooth, well graded shades and there is great detail retention when lifting shadows in post. I previously had the 16-85 and in truth I was never that happy with it. As I live in the mid-range zoom FL's I decided to give the 16-80 a try. �I haven't traveled with it (the ultimate test) but it seems to have very good contrast and sharpness - and the VR works very well. �It is a surprisingly big lens - not 24-120 f4 big, but kind of beefy for a DX lens but then you get f2.8 at the wide end . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent If you want an in-depth review, go read what Thom Hogan has to say.� My 2 cents: This is an excellent all-around camera and lens kit. I'm not going to comment on image quality and stuff, as there is a ton of information available already. I have no complaints whatsoever. My main reason for buying this camera, and switching back to DSLR from mirrorless, was handling. I was dearly missing the joy of shooting with a well designed camera. That's where Nikon's decades of designing SLRs are evident. The ergonomics are nearly perfect. This camera is a joy to use and the results are evident.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Like it A Lot! Stepped up from D300. Camera is almost intuitive based upon my history. Lens matches well. Did test on lens sharpness (tripod, wireless release) at ISO200: 16 mm; best at f8-f11; 24mm best at f5.6-11; 40mm best at f5.6-8; 80mmbest at f5.6-11. I am really enjoying the camera-lens combination for landscapes.
Date published: 2017-09-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Leap Foward. As the owner of a D-7100 I can say. The price is great for the addition of the tilt monitor, which I would really like. The addition of 4K at this price is also GREAT The 16-80 is a very good lens and can be used at 16-80 if/when you go to a FF Nikon. Also, a D-750 FF is available for less and has larger pixels, but a Expeed 4 sensor. Not a big problem... Test them both and see. I would go with the D-750.
Date published: 2017-07-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens is sharp/ best crop sensor out there- Amazing Have shot several hundred shots and light roomed them all. The image detail and dynamic range of this sensor is amazing. Great camera. The newer 16-80 lens is incredibly sharp with clarity. Great setup. Don't forget the Nikon 10-20mm lens for under $300. Amazing lens for the price.
