The Nikon D7500 is a midrange APS-C DSLR that both sits below and borrows a lot from Nikon’s APS-C flagship D500 including its 20.9MP sensor, high-res metering sensor (used for subject recognition), and very probably its image processor. This is because the D7500 sits below the D500 and because it borrows a lot from the D500. It’s a lot like a smaller version of the D500, which is, in and of itself, a smaller version of the D5. Every one of them is optimized for speed.

The D7500 is an improvement of 2 frames per second over its predecessor and is capable of shooting at 8 frames per second while capturing an amazing 100 or more JPEGs (3x the buffer of the D7200). Although this is not quite as rapid as the D500’s burst rate of 10 frames per second, it is still a substantial amount of firepower for both amateur and professional photographers. It utilizes the same tried-and-true 51-point module as the D7200 and D7100 in its autofocus mechanism. However, the new metering sensor ought to result in improved three-dimensional tracking. In case you hadn’t figured it out by now, this is an excellent camera for capturing fast-moving action.
When compared to its predecessor, the D7500’s design does not differ drastically in terms of its outside appearance. The D7500 continues Nikon’s tradition of producing DSLRs that are both small and powerful, with a focus on appealing to enthusiasts. There is now support for 4K video, however just like the majority of Nikon’s most recent cameras, it comes with constraints, including a crop factor of 1.5x. However, the inclusion of a touchscreen that can be tilted, a deeper grip, and strengthened sealing are all upgrades that are very much appreciated.

The Nikon D7500 is an exceptional stills camera that also serves as an improvement upon an already remarkable DSLR. In addition, it improves topic detection and delivers additional performance and buffer depth to the enthusiast level. The camera’s great ergonomics are further enhanced by the inclusion of a touchscreen that can be tilted, which makes it a more pleasant device to handle than its predecessor. And although 4K video is a good selling feature, the 1.5x crop and terrible video AF dull the attraction of the technology for movie creators. However, the D7500 is a beast of a camera for those who want to take stills.
