Highlights of the Nikon D7500 Media Launch

The launch event for Nikon’s newest DX-format DSLR D7500 was successfully held on 26 May 2017. It attracted numerous media guests who were excited to experience the brand new D7500 and its class-leading performance through demonstrations, trials and a model photo-shooting session.

The D7500 leverages its award-winning D7000 series pedigree, introducing advanced imaging technologies in a lighter, compact body. 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. 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 50 shots2 with each burst of approximately 8 frames-per-second3 (14-bit RAW images with lossless compression applied).
