[h=4]2017-04-12[/h][h=2]PERFORMANCE FOR THE PASSIONATE: NIKON D7500 IS READY TO EXCEED EXPECTATIONS FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS GEARED UP TO HONE THEIR CRAFT[/h]New DSLR leverages its award-winning D7000 series pedigree, while introducing advanced imaging technologies in a lighter, compact body to keep up with a photographer’s adventures


SINGAPORE – Designed to fuel the passions of photographers is the new Nikon D7500, announced today by Nikon Singapore Pte Ltd. Nikon’s newest DX-format DSLR combines the performance of class-leading DSLR photography with outstanding agility and operability, creating endless possibilities for core photography enthusiasts and those on a quest to perfect their craft.

“Intended to inspire growing photographers and video enthusiasts, the new D7500 builds on the DNA of the DX-format flagship D500 with the same high-performance EXPEED 5 image-processing engine. This Nikon DSLR, significantly improved from its predecessor, the D7200, has its performance and build focus on helping them chase and capture great photography moments,” said Hiroki Yamaoka, General Manager of International Marketing Division Imaging Group, Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd. “Nikon has combined 4K UHD video recording finesse, and outstanding low-light and subject acquisition capabilities for its still images’ capture, within an improved camera body to provide a refined photography experience.”



The D7500, with vibrant 4K UHD video support to capture cinematic adventures, is equipped with a high-performance EXPEED 5 image-processing engine and an updated Nikon DX-format 20.9-megapixel CMOS sensor, a combination that creates images with superior definition and reduced noise even at higher ISO values. Both are inherited from the Nikon D500, allowing photographers to embrace their full creative potential and freeing them from the constraints of challenging shooting environments. The new Nikon DX-format sensor also has a native ISO range of 100 to 512001 to provide minimal noise in low-light scenarios.

Further supporting the unlimited possibilities for image creation is improved subject acquisition with the highly precise Autofocus (AF), Auto Exposure (AE), and auto white balance performance, delivered by the 180K-pixel RGB sensor and 51-point AF System. The latest DSLR also seizes the picture-perfect moments with a high-speed continuous capture of up to approximately 50 shots2 with each burst of approximately 8 frames-per-second3 (14-bit RAW images with lossless compression applied). All of these features are packed into a re-designed camera body that is lighter and more compact, with a deeper grip to provide secure handling and agility for the freedom of movement.

For superior shots and great adventures to be shared on-the-move, SnapBridge4 and built-in Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® are made available.

Looks like a D500 lite
Technology from the flagship DX camera is trickling down to the D7500

would be really interested to try this camera out, side by side shootout with a D500
lets see what are the key differences in real life shooting situations

Which would you buy if you were looking for a DX Camera?

If it is lighter and cheaper and if features wise not much different from D500, then why not ?

The 4K video can record continuously for how long ?

what is the RRP ?

thanks

Although the new D7500 inherits a lot of features from D500, something is missing.

Some features of D7200 that are missing from the new D7500:
1. Second SD Card slot removed
2. Slightly lower LCD resolution
3. Use new battery with lower battery capacity
4. No possibility to add battery grip, no more contact at the bottom side
5. NFC removed
6. Magnesium Alloy removed from the body

Not sure of the reason why Nikon do this.
Hope that's not a deal breaker :think:

I have spent couple of hours to make comparison today :sweatsm:


Inherited the sensor, image processing engine, and some features from D500, D7500 is worth the upgrade ! :thumbsup:

The biggest difference for me will be the AF-module. The AF coverage on the D500 is huge (not only in the number of points, but how widely spaced it is)



I love the D500 for nature shooting. The d7500 will not come close to the buffer size available. But for general shooting, the D7500 is enough for most.

I will think that Nikon is consolidating their product lines. (I vaguely remembered this was mentioned before). There might not be new product release for d3xxx and d5xxx. D7xxx covers the mid and entry range. Any old D7xxx products will continue to sell at cheap price to cover that.
