What if the superior image quality of the D500, Nikon’s DX flagship D-SLR camera, was made even more accessible? The new D7500 employs the same CMOS sensor, EXPEED 5 image-processing engine and 180K-pixel RGB sensor used in the D500, but packs them into a more compact and lightweight body. It gives you total confidence when shooting under harsh lighting conditions or capturing fast and erratically moving subjects. If you have a passion to take your photography to the next level, the D7500 is the perfect partner. Nikon’s powerful EXPEED 5 image-processing engine handles data from the D7500’s image sensor speedily, enabling the camera to achieve continuous shooting speeds of approx. 8 fps and record 4K UHD video at 30p. Noise is dramatically reduced while details are preserved, even at high ISO settings, meaning that subtle tonal gradations can be reproduced more smoothly in your images and movies. The D7500 employs the same CMOS image sensor used in the Nikon DX flagship model D500, offering 20.9 effective megapixels. It strikes an optimal balance between image resolution and low-noise performance, delivering exceptional image quality even at high ISO settings. Designed without a low-pass filter to achieve even higher definition, it unlocks the full potential of your NIKKOR lenses, allowing the D7500 to produce amazingly sharp, crisp images. The D7500 has an extremely wide ISO sensitivity range of 100 to 51200, and even at higher sensitivities it achieves consistently sharper images with lower noise. You can also lower the ISO sensitivity down to Lo 1 (ISO 50 equivalent) or raise it up to Hi 5 (ISO 1640000 equivalent). Aided by the camera’s precise low-light AF performance, it’s now even easier to capture subjects in dark scenes. Nikon’s original Picture Control system offers an easy way to take creative control over your images. You can select one of eight Picture Controls according to your creative intentions — including Auto Picture Control, newly introduced in the D7500. If you want to give your images a more specific look, you can adjust parameters such as sharpness, clarity, contrast and brightness. It’s also possible to register edited profiles as custom Picture Controls, and share the files with friends by sending them via email. The D7500 is newly equipped with Auto Picture Control, enabling it to give your images a more desirable look according to each scene’s characteristics, without the need for retouching. Using subject information precisely detected by the camera’s Advanced Scene Recognition System, Auto Picture Control fine-tunes the tone curve, color, sharpness and clarity of Standard Picture Control. As a result, skin tones are rendered softer for portrait images, while blue skies and verdant greens are rendered more vibrantly for landscape shots. What’s more, Auto maintains a consistent look across multiple images when using continuous shooting, even when there are small variations in brightness or angle between each frame.
