Nikon today announced its latest mid-range DSLR, the D7500. The new camera can be considered to be the D500’s “little brother”, as it uses the same core hardware.
The D7500 features a 20.9MP resolution DX format CMOS sensor, the very same sensor that Nikon uses in the D500. As Chipworks revealed in its report last month, the sensor is actually made by Sony. Nikon is also using the same EXPEED 5 image processor on the new model. The new camera is capable of shooting up to 8 frames per second in burst mode and continue capturing photos even after taking 50 RAW shots.
Complementing the impressive shooting speeds is an 180,000-pixel RGB sensor. In addition to great speed, the camera also supports an impressively wide ISO range up to 51,200 with improved noise reduction. One of the main highlights of the Nikon D7500 is support for 4K video capture. It captures Ultra HD videos with a high bit rate of 144 Mbps. When shooting in Full HD resolution, the camera lets you use 3-axis digital image stabilization as well as Active D-Lighting.
On the design front, the D7500 boasts a deep grip with a more durable weather sealed body compared to the D7200. For easy sharing to smart devices, the D7500 comes with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and support for the Nikon SnapBridge application. Battery life, has strangely gone down when compared to its predecessor, the D7200. The D7500 packs the EN-El15a battery, capable of delivering 950 shots when fully charged.
Availability and pricing info for the Singapore market will be revealed at a later date.
