Nikon announces the D7500, designed to expand the creative possibilities for photographers as they pursue their passion in photography. Powerful, nimble, and fully connected, the D7500 offers the same image quality as the D500 — Nikon’s flagship DX-format DSLR — and a level of performance that overcomes the most challenging conditions.
Packing powerful image technology in a travel-ready body, the D7500 is ideal for photographers who are always searching for the best possible images. As with the D500, the D7500’s 20.9 MP DX-format CMOS sensor offers an ISO range that extends to an incredible ISO 1,640,000 equivalent. Nikon’s EXPEED 5 processor is on board, offering faster, cleaner image processing. And the greatly increased pixel count of the 180K-pixel RGB sensor enables improved metering accuracy.
Video shooters can record 4K/UHD movies, and Nikon’s in-camera Electronic Vibration Reduction counters the effects of unwanted camera movement. Ergonomic improvements include the new tilting monitor that offers touchscreen operation, and a deep grip for a stable, exceptionally comfortable hold. And this is the first Nikon DSLR to boast a built-in flash that supports radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting.
