D7500 Midrange DSLR Announced By Nikon
Nikon announced the D7500, a midrange DSLR. The camera design reminds you of the D7100 or D7200 but they tweaked it a bit. The LCD has still the same size, but it’s now a touch screen and a tilting screen. But Nikon sadly removed the second SD card slot that the D7100 and D7200 design had. Several people are calling it already the D500 lite because they added several features of it to the D7500. That would be the tilting screen, the 20.9MP APS-C sensor and Expeed 5 processor, the 180k px RGB metering sensor and the fact that it’s capable of recording 4K videos.
The autofocus system is the same as the D7200 has with 51 points, including 15 cross-type but with the better metering sensor. Burst shooting was improved from the D7100 to the D7200 and with the D7500 it’s improved again. Improved from 6 FPS you can now shoot at 8 FPS. Instead of 18, you can now take up to 50 at 14-bit uncompressed RAW setting. The sensor and image processor increased the ISO range by a full stop (again compared with the D7200), with a native range of 100-51200 that expands to 50-1.64 million. Of course, the camera also comes with the wireless feature called SnapBridge. Learn more about the Nikon D7500 specs at the official Nikon page.
