Nikon D7500 APS-C Mid-size SLR cameras became a demanded when they were announced back in 2017-04-12. A marvel of high-quality, it manages surprising image quality, enhanced light gathering efficiency, faster data transfer and amazing colors. The camera is an excellent choice if you want to shoot stunning fashion, portraits, and superb traveling photos. The tech-savvy, creative and innovative camera saw the daylight on 2017-04-12. Since then, it has become a best-selling and contemporary camera among wedding photographers. As you’d expect from a best-selling DSLR such as the Nikon D7500, the model sees a range of external controls dotted around the body of the camera offering direct access to essential shooting functionality. With the Nikon D7500, Nikon has wholly revised the internals, adding the stacked-CMOS 21 megapixels sensor and 3.2″ Tilting. Speaking of low light, the Nikon D7500 features an ISO range of 100-51,200 (or 1640000 in Boosted mode) and continuous shooting at 8.0 fps - both reputable params for a camera in this class. ISO 1640000 files are barely usable, and just like the previous model, higher settings should be avoided.

Nikon have 287 lenses and to make the most of its capabilities, it's essential that you invest in high-quality lenses. Based around the Nikon Nikon F, the Nikon D7500 is compatible with a massive range of lenses dating back to 1975. 100% viewfinder coverage is allowing you to see more of your image in the fantastic Optical (pentaprism) viewfinder. Additionally, the tilting touchscreen LCD screen makes it easy to get the astonishing shot, even from high or low angles. Confirm photos capture and view menu options, histograms, video settings and more using the enhanced, remarkable, simple 3.2″-inch 922k dots LCD screen with 100% coverage. All the information you can see on 3.2″ display with an intuitive user interface. Shoot interesting high-resolution photos with high-speed continuous shooting up to 8.0 fps.

The Nikon D7500 embody a host of enhancements to enhance performance, operation, and speed. While subjective, I think the fashionable camera body design is remarkable, elegant and modern. It feels solid in hand thanks to a generous hand-grip that easily accommodates even larger hands without the little finger hanging off the end. Besides, it's worth noting that it comes with a fresh selection of original accessories, which can expand its capabilities even further. Make a single image discovering a reputable extensive dynamic range, but with smaller noise and beautiful color rendering than ever before. This is a purely subjective statement, but having a fun camera for a beginner is a great thing since you’ll want to pick it up to shoot with more and more.

All Mid-size SLR cameras come with at least one SD memory card slot, although an increasing number of high-end models sport two. The body measures 136 x 104 x 73mm and weighs 640g, and a weather-sealed body is super simple and easy to use. The camera works with EN-EL15a batteries, which has enough for 950 shots. Other vital bits of the camera includes a rich set of connectivity settings and simple controls. First of all, when the camera is connected over HDMI, you can set it to crop images into 16 automatically: 9 ratios, although this will cut the top and bottom off the native 3:2 pictures. The camera can also capture 4K video, as well as super slow-motion clips at eye-popping multiple frames per second. The camera has ultra-fast autofocus, which can lock onto an object in less than one-tenth of a second.

I spent a month shooting with its big brother the Nikon D500 (reviewed here) and was impressed by the beautiful image quality. Nikon camera fans admire the company's technical excellence, and the Nikon D7500 delivers on that. If you already have an investment in another camera system, consider Nikon D7500 as a backup.
