Nikon has brought the image quality and features of the D500 to a more accessible, yet still very capable body with its release of the D7500 DSLR. This camera uses the same 20.9MP DX-format CMOS sensor, 180,000-pixel RGB metering sensor, and EXPEED 5 processor as its big brother to deliver native sensitivities of up to ISO 51200, continuous shooting at up to 8 fps, and the ability to record 4K UHD video. The camera even gains the latest connectivity options from Nikon, including SnapBridge with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and compatibility with the Nikon Radio Control Advanced Wireless Lighting.
The D7500 sits in a unique place in Nikon’s DSLR lineup, making it a great option as a second body for professional shooters or as a primary camera for advanced users or beginners looking to upgrade or pick up a full-featured body to start. It is ideal for sports and action photography with its speed and buffer, including the ability to capture up to 50 14-bit lossless compressed raw images in a single stream at 8 fps. This works wonderfully with the 51-point AF system with 15 cross-type sensors and group-area AF for fast, accurate focusing.
Handling is great, as is expected from Nikon’s DSLRs. Its Monocoque design with weather sealing can be used in a variety of conditions and it has a deep grip for comfortable handheld shooting, even with large telephoto lenses. The 3.2" 922k-dot tilting touchscreen is handy for reviewing photos and working with live view. For recording images, it is equipped with a single SD card slot.
Last, but certainly not least, is the addition of UHD 4K video recording at up to 30p. This makes it the most affordable 4K-shooting DSLR from Nikon, and will deliver the same image quality as the D500, thanks to the same processing technology. It also offers a ton of professional and creative features to ensure you have the best tools and settings to capture your shot.
