2017 MIDRANGE CAMERA OF THE YEAR — DP REVIEW
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.

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.
In-camera Time-lapse Movies
The D7500 lets you generate 4K UHD² or Full HD time-lapse movies, entirely in the camera.
Power Aperture Control
Change the aperture smoothly and quietly during movie recording—especially useful for significant brightness shifts in a single shot.³
Versatile Sound Controls
Microphone sensitivity levels can be adjusted in 20 increments while visually monitoring the sound level indicator during movie recording.
Preserve details in highlights and shadows when shooting high-contrast scenes, giving your footage richer tonal gradation and a more natural brightness.
Capture smooth footage when working without a tripod, or using a single-focal-length (prime) lens without optical VR.
Take creative control over your images
With Nikon’s Picture Control System, you can select one of eight Picture Controls according to your creative intentions including Picture Control Auto to automatically optimise images to each scene.
Designed for Performance
The D7500 was designed to fuel your creativity all day long.
Touch-operation, Tilting 3.2-in. LCD Monitor
The D7500’s tilting LCD monitor lets you shoot from a wider range of angles with ease, as well as focus and release the shutter by touch when using live view. It makes macro shooting from low-angle positions more convenient, enabling you to operate the camera right next to flowers growing close to the ground.
Precision Optical Viewfinder
With Nikon’s precision optical viewfinders, you see what the lens sees—without any delay and in real time. This is ideal for sports, action, low light and general shooting scenarios. Perfected over many decades, the optical viewfinder gives you the purest shooting experience possible, with the clearest, brightest and most seamless rendition of the scene playing out in front of you.
Comfortable Grip Design
D7500 employs a deeper, more ergonomic grip designed to help improve stability, eliminate hand and arm fatigue and ensure comfort for all day, handheld shooting with telephoto, tele-zoom or all-in-one NIKKOR lenses. Whether you are an enthusiast or a professional, the D7500’s ergonomics are uncompromising in comfort and operability, giving you that seamless Nikon shooting experience regardless of what you are shooting.

Built Light, Rugged & Weather Sealed
D7500’s body employs a lightweight monocoque structure made of carbon fibre composite material, offering durability against shocks. Its design incorporates a deeper grip for more secure and comfortable holding—a big advantage during longer shoots. Comprehensive weather sealing is applied to the camera body to prevent dust and water droplets from damaging the electronics, for added peace of mind.
Long battery life lets you shoot uninterrupted
With the D7500’s optimised power management, you can shoot approximately 950 shots⁶ with the included EN-EL15a battery before you have to worry about swapping it. With competing platforms, you’ll find yourself carrying up to 3 batteries to shoot as many frames as the D7500. If performance and reliability matter, then battery life matters. The D7500 can help you get a full day’s worth of shooting down to one battery charge.
Durable shutter unit tested for 150,000 cycles
D7500’s shutter unit has been rigorously tested for 150,000 cycles while actually loaded into the camera. It’s also fitted with a shutter monitor function that calculates the duration between front- and rear-curtain movements every time the shutter is released, and automatically corrects any variance.
¹Approximate frame rates for a fully charged EN-EL15a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery, using continuous-servo AF, a shutter speed of 1/250 s or faster, and with other settings at default values.
