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

 

When looking at and testing a new camera, reviewers often subconsciously compare the new model to a previous camera from the same manufacturer. When I was holding and testing the Nikon D7500 recently, I kept thinking back to the Nikon D500. And that's...

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,...

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

 

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 Review

 

The D7500 is Nikon's latest enthusiast level DSLR. It features the same 20.9 megapixel APS-C sized sensor as found in the top-of-the-line D500, making it a good alternative for those who are tempted by the more expensive camera but don't quite have the...

For enthusiasts who are excited by the D500 but didn’t want to spend the high asking price it commands, the Nikon D7500 is a great alternative. With it, you almost get a mini D500, especially given that it uses the same sensor and processor combination.

Nikon D7500 Review

 

It's no longer the DX-format flagship, but the Nikon D7500 is nevertheless an extremely capable camera, and comes with a pricetag that's much more affordable than the D500, despite including the same imaging pipeline and many of the same features. Its...

New carbon fiber body is light, compact and very comfortable; Same excellent image quality as the flagship D500; Quick 8.2 frames per second burst shooting with generous buffer; Very fast, accurate autofocus; Tilting touch-screen display; Very good...

White balance tends warm under incandescent lights; Only a single flash card slot; Doesn't support portrait / battery grip accessories; No rear infrared receiver any more; non-CPU AI lenses will be manual only; 4K video comes with a heavy crop; Movie...

When Nikon launched its D7000 DSLR back in late 2011, you could say that it created something of an instant classic. The D7000 perfectly hit the sweet spot for enthusiasts and even as a second or third body for many pros. It was affordable and yet...
