Description

Flagship Image Quality

The D7500 uses the same 20.9 MP DX-format image sensor and Expeed 5 image processing engine as the D500, taking your photos and videos to the next level.

20.9 Megapixel CMOS Sensor

The D7500 employs the same CMOS image sensor used in the Nikon DX flagship model D500, offering 20.9 megapixels. Designed without a low-pass filter, it strikes an optimal balance between image resolution and low-noise performance. Paired with NIKKOR lenses, the D7500 produces amazingly sharp, crisp images.

Expeed 5 Image Processing

Nikon’s powerful Expeed 5 image-processing engine handles fast continuous shooting and 4K UHD video recording at 30p with ease.

ISO Range up to 51,200

With a wide standard ISO range from 100 to 51,200 (expandable to ISO 1,640,000), you can achieve sharper low-light images with minimal noise.

AF and Capturing Ability

Superb shooting performance for moving subjects.

8 fps Continuous Shooting with Extended Buffer Capacity

Capture elusive subjects at their peak with up to 8 fps continuous shooting1 for approximately 50 RAW images (14-bit lossless compressed).

51 Point AF System

Quickly focus on erratically moving and low-contrast subjects with a versatile 51-point AF system and the same group-area AF mode found in Nikon’s flagship D5 and D500.

180k-pixel RGB Sensor

Just like the D500, the D7500 employs a 180K-pixel RGB sensor for more powerful face detection to improve the accuracy of capture-enhancing features like matrix metering, i-TTL, 3D-tracking, AWB and more.

Cinematic Versatility

Get your creative world in motion with stunning 4K UHD video and advanced filmmaking features.

4K UHD Video Recording

The D7500 lets you record up to 29:59 in 4K UHD/30p as well as Full HD. Record uncompressed, 8 bit 4:2:2 4K UHD files to an external recorder via HDMI, while simultaneously recording to your in-camera SD memory card. You also have the option of recording in MP4 format for smooth playback on smart devices. Combined with the excellent optical performance of NIKKOR lenses, the D7500 depicts scenes in breathtaking detail.
