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,...

Review: Nikon D7500, speed and capability

 

Think of it as a D500-light, which is essentially a miniature D5, Nikon's flagship sports camera. In other words, the D7500 is built for speed. And it delivers.

The D7200 is a beast of a camera even by today's standards. Its successor in particular had a difficult spot to fill: slide in below the new APS-C flagship D500, without being too similar, but improve upon the already excellent blood line that is the...

Nikon D7500 gives a little to get a lot

 

Nikon finally adds a tilting screen to its dSLR for shooting action on a budget but made a couple sacrifices along the way.

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 Review

 

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

 

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...

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 AF is prone to hunting, Extended ISO sensitivities...

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...

Nikon D7500 Review: The Best DSLR Under $1,500

 

The Nikon D7500 is an excellent addition to the company's DX-format camera line. One can almost think of it as the younger sibling to the D500, with the same stellar image quality and incredible speed and AF accuracy. Its video autofocus performance...

Excellent image quality ; Speedy continuous shooting ; Fast autofocus ; Responsive touch screen ; Extensive feature set

No dual card slots ; 4K video cropped ; AF erratic in video capture

The Nikon D7500 is an advanced-enthusiast DX-format camera that impresses with its top-notch image quality and blazingly fast performance.
