Nikon D7500

 

Nikon's DX-format DSLR for enthusiasts fits the best bits of the D500 into a smaller, more affordable body. . Nikon D7500.

Excellent control layout and handling ; Great image quality up to very high ISO settings ; Excellent autofocus using the viewfinder ; Tilting screen a big improvement on previous D7000-series models

Slow Live View autofocus ; SnapBridge connectivity lacking in features ; Only a single SD card slot, where previous D7000-series models had two

In general use, the D7500 is an impressively accomplished performer, more than capable of handling almost any photographic situation you might present it with. Having shot well over a thousand images with the camera across a wide variety of situations,...

Nikon D7500 review: Better than the Canon 80D?

 

The Nikon D7500 is a cracking camera. It's up there with the most usable Nikon DSLR ever, thanks to it's fast processor, solid build, bright

Features inherited from the class-leading Nikon D500 ; Large and vibrant tilt LCD touchscreen ; Excellent build quality and handling ; Pin-sharp images ; Overall low-light performance

Single UHS I SD memory card slot ; 4K video crop mode not ideal for wide-angle recording ; AF in live view not up to scratch ; No Ai indexing tab limits compatibility with Nikon's manual focus lenses ; Additional vertical grip not possible

The Nikon D7500 is a cracking camera. It's up there with the most usable Nikon DSLR ever, thanks to it's fast processor, solid build, bright viewfinder and responsive tilt-angle touchscreen.

Nikon D7500 review

 

Nikon's mid-range DSLR is anything but middling...

Superb image quality ; Speedy autofocus ; Handy tilting touchscreen ; Fast burst mode (at this price)

Only one SD card slot ; Wireless sharing a bit patchy

If you don't mind its DSLR bulk, this is one of the best all-rounders you can buy at this price

Nikon D7500 review

 

Nikon's enthusiast DSLR gets a major upgrade

Brilliant sensor ; Excellent high-ISO performance ; Advanced AF system ; 8fps burst shooting ; Tilt-angle screen

Low rear screen resolution ; Only one SD card slot ; Live View focusing still slow

This latest addition to Nikon’s DSLR line-up represents the biggest revamp we’ve seen in the D7xxx series since the D7000 replaced the D90. The combination of Nikon's 20.9MP sensor and EXPEED 5 image processing engine from the D500 in an even more...

Nikon D7500

 

The D7500 is an advanced DSLR camera that packs much of the innovation of the acclaimed D500 into a lightweight, robust and more affordable body. Using the same 20.

  (Rating Hidden)

Hoping to attract a range of new photographers or videographers, the Nikon D7500 includes some new features as seen in the top-of-the-line D500. This means it may be a good camera for those who like the more expensive model, but don't have the budget...

Hands on: Nikon D7500 June 28th, 2017 | by Wilson Wong Imaging 0

 

The D7500 has inherited the very capable 20.1-megapixel DX CMOS sensor from the D500 that comes with the Expeed 5 image processor.

Nikon D7500 Full Review

 

We've put the Nikon D7500 Digital SLR, with the 20mp sensor from the D500 but with a lower price, through its paces. Read on to find out how it scores.

With the Nikon D7500 featuring the same image sensor as the Nikon D500, you are getting the same D500 image quality, at a lower price point, and in a more compact camera body. This means you can benefit from the best-in-class noise performance, giving...

Nikon D7500 review

 

Nikon's new D7500 isn't as beastly as the D500, but it still packs a serious bite.

8 fps continuous shooting ; 3D AF tracking works very well ; Image buffer holds 50 uncompressed RAWs ; Dust- and splash-proof ; 4K video

Lacks some high-end features of D7200 ; 4K video is severely cropped

Nikon D7500

 

The Nikon D7500 SLR inherits many of the features of the flagship D500 and is available for a lot less money, but omits some features found in previous D7000 models.

20.9MP APS-C image sensor. 8.1fps continuous shooting. 50-shot Raw, 100-shot JPG buffer. 51-point autofocus system. Tilting touch LCD. Weather-sealed body. 4K video capture. SnapBridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

4K video is cropped. Autofocus system not as robust as D500. Only one memory card slot. Omits Depth of Field Preview function. No battery grip option.

The Nikon D7500 takes two steps forward from the D7200, and then turns around to take a step back. It offers some serious improvements—a faster capture rate with a large shooting buffer, a more robust implementation of a trusted autofocus system,...
