    Nikon D7500 Announcement

      News

    Nikon D7500 is a new Nikon reflex camera with the APS-C sensor, which places itself between Nikon D7200 and D500. According to the producer, it is not a direct successor of Nikon D7200, but yet another camera in a new series equipped with the DX sensor.

     

    Nikon D7500 shares many functions with the D500 model. The first one is the CMOS sensor with 20.9 megapixel resolution. In addition, we also get the latest generation Expeed 5 processor and light measurement system based on the RGB sensor with the resolution of 180k points. The camera works within the range of sensitivity of 100-51200, which can be extended to 50-1640000. The photos can be taken with the maximum speed of 8fps.

    D7500 is sealed and, similarly to Nikon D750, possesses a deep grip, thanks to which the camera should lie in a hand despite its compact size. The 3'' touch screen is folded vertically, just like in the case of Nikon D500.

    The new Nikon is also undoubtedly an interesting offer for movie-makers. We will be able to record videos in 4K (3840 x 2160) with the speed of 30, 25 and 24 fps (144 Mbps) in the MPEG-4 (H.264) format. In Full HD, we can also use electronic vibration reduction. Apart from that, we also have a possibility of recording time-lapse movies, as well as flat image profile, zebra patterning and Auto ISO options. There are also microphone and headphone inputs.

    The New Nikon D7500: Superior Performance That Drives The Desire To Create

     

    Exceptional Speed, Precision and Low-Light Ability Has Never Been as Attainable; The New D7500 Uses the Same Powerful Imaging Sensor and Includes Many Features from Nikon’s DX-Format D500 Flagship

     

    MELVILLE, NY – Enthusiasts are a distinct type of photographer, who go to great lengths in the relentless pursuit of the perfect capture. It is for this user that Nikon Inc. announced the D7500 today, an advanced-level DX-format DSLR that provides a robust yet lightweight camera with powerful performance and premium features. Using the same 20.9-megapixel image sensor, processor and wide ISO range as the D500, Nikon’s flagship DX-format DSLR, the D7500 incorporates an exceptional combination of stunning image quality, impressive speed, astounding low-light ability and 4K UHD video capture, yet remains within reach for a diverse array of image makers and creators.“The Nikon D7500 was engineered to be as versatile as the photographer using it, and excels whether shooting fast-action sports, stunning low-light landscapes, distant wildlife, glamorous portraits or multimedia content,” said Kosuke Kawaura, Director of Marketing and Planning, Nikon Inc. “This is a camera for the photographers who are serious about their passion, infatuated with the next frame and above all else, want speed, small size and an excellent value.”

     

     

    Balance Image Quality and Low-Light Performance


    The new D7500 features Nikon’s latest 20.9-megapixel DX-format imaging sensor and EXPEED 5 processing engine, the same high-performance heart of the Nikon D500. Designed to excel in a wide array of shooting conditions, the D7500 eliminates the optical low-pass filter (OLPF) for maximum sharpness and clarity, with the class-leading dynamic range flexibility that is a hallmark of Nikon DSLRs. The compact DX-format form factor also gives photographers extended focal length reach that is an advantage for sports and wildlife photography, especially when coupled with the vast selection of available NIKKOR lenses.

     

    Whether shooting a landscape at dawn or sports under indoor lights, the D7500 affords the latitude of low-light capability to consistently nail the shot, time and time again. Even in the most challenging light, users can capture images with minimal noise, thanks to a native ISO range that spans from 100-51,200, and an expanded ISO range up to an astonishing 1.64 million equivalent. Those same stellar image quality and low noise virtues also apply to those shooting video, whether it’s a 4K UHD production or a mesmerizing astro time-lapse of the night sky.

     

     

    Focus with Precision, Capture with Confidence

     

    The Nikon D7500 DSLR gives photographers many new premium features and advanced Nikon technologies to help create incredible images and video:

    The D7500 is fast enough to keep pace with the quickest athletes or animals; capable of shooting at up to 8 frames-per-second (fps) with full AF/AE, with an expanded buffer of up to 50 RAW/NEF (14-bit lossless compressed) or 100 JPEG images.

    Nikon’s proven 51-point AF system covers a large portion of the frame. A Group-Area AF function has been added, which is a preferred focus mode for those shooting fast action.

    • The slim, tilting 3.2” 922K-dot touchscreen LCD can be used to easily control, compose and play back, even while mounted to a tripod. The menus can also be easily navigated using the touchscreen function.
    • Like the Nikon D5 and D500, the 180K RGB Metering system is used with the Advanced Scene Recognition System to help ensure balanced exposures and fantastic color rendition in nearly any shooting situation.
    • Lightweight DX form factor allows for an agile, comfortable body with deep grip and comprehensive weather sealing. The monocoque body is durable and approximately 5% lighter than the D7200 and 16% lighter than the D500.
    • Shoot all day and well into the night with up to approximately 950 shots per charge (CIPA standard).
    • Like the D500 and D5, the Auto AF Fine Tune feature when in Live View allows users to automatically calibrate autofocus with specific lenses if needed.
    • Through the Retouch menu, users can access an in-camera Batch Process RAW Converter that can handle multiple images to optimize workflow.
    • The camera’s pop-up flash can act as a Commander for remote Speedlights, while the camera is also optimized to function with line-of-sight using SB-500, SB-700 and SB-5000. It can even support the radio frequency control system of the SB-5000 when using the optional WR-R10 accessory.
    • New Auto Picture Control function analyzes the picture scene and automatically generates a tone curve within the camera.
    • Images can automatically be downloaded to a compatible smartphone, and the camera can also be triggered remotely using Built-in Bluetooth1 and Wi-Fi2 

     

     

    Multimedia Capabilities for Creators

     

    The Nikon D7500 adds in a diverse array of advanced features for multimedia content creators, including 4K UHD (3840 × 2160/30p) video capture and the ability to produce awe-inspiring 4K UHD time-lapse movies in-camera. Video files can be stored as either MOV files or as MP4 files, for greater flexibility and easier playback on a wide range of devices. Like the D500, the D7500 offers 3-axis built-in e-VR image stabilization when shooting 1080p Full HD video, and can be easily focused using the rear touchscreen function.

     

    For the advanced videographer, the D7500 offers simultaneous 4K UHD output to card and uncompressed via HDMI, as well as a headphone and microphone jack for pro-level audio recording and monitoring. To allow for smooth exposure adjustments, the camera also supports power aperture for smooth and step-less depth-of-field transitions while users can also keep highlights in-check using visible zebra stripes in live-view mode.

      What Brand of Camera Do You Use?
    • By MICHAEL GABLER
      For the last few weeks, we have been bombarded by the leaks concerning Nikon D850. Today, exactly at midnight EST, Nikon officially showed its newest creation, which proves that reflex cameras can still be innovative. Impressive resolution of 45-megapixel, fast continuous shooting mode, rich movie-making functions – these are the main features of the D850 model presented today.

      In many aspects, the camera presented today does not resemble its predecessor. The camera has undergone improvements practically on every level. As a result, we get a new full-frame BSI CMOS sensor, without a low-pass filter, with impressive resolution of 45.7 million pixels, which is supported by the EXPEED 5 image processor, known from Nikon D5. Thanks to this, we can take photographs within the ISO range of 64–25600 (with a possibility to extend to ISO 32–102400).
       

      1). Nikon D850
       
      Continuous shooting mode also makes a great impression. In D850 we can take photographs with the maximum speed of 7 f/s, with full AF support, and after plugging in MB-D18 battery grip and EN-EL18a/b rechargeable batteries, this speed increases up to 9 f/s. It is worth remembering that the camera has almost 46Mp! What is more, as the producer assures, the camera's buffer will be filled only after taking 51 photographs.

      The camera is also equipped with a totally silent electronic shutter, thanks to which we will be able to take photographs with the speed of 30 f/s. However, in this mode the photographs will be reduced to 8.6-megapixel.
       

      2). Nikon D850
       
      The autofocus is 153-point AF system with the central point's sensitivity up to -4 EV (other sensitive points up to -3 EV). Apart from that, the autofocus is to cover 30% more of the frame than the reporter model D5.

      The camera is also supposed to perfectly fulfil its role during the recording of videos. In D850, we can record movies in 4K (24/25/30p), in full size of the sensor. In addition, we get a range of helpful functions such as zebra patterning or focus peaking. We will also be able to connect headphones and microphone to the D850 model as well as transfer the uncompressed 4K 8-bit 4:2:2 material through HDMI connector. It is also worth adding that we will be able to record time-lapse movies in 4K.
       

      3). Nikon D850
       
      On the back panel, we will find a folding 3.2'' LCD touch screen, with the resolution of 2.36 Mp – known from the D500 model. The camera has two slots for memory cards – one for SD, and the second one for XQD. Of course, we can also find wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) as well as use SnapBridge.

      The body of D850 is, of course, fully sealed. The back and upper walls are made of magnesium alloy whereas the front one is made of material. The camera does not have a built-in flash, which significantly improves its impermeability and durability. The buttons, as in the case of other top bodies, are now illuminated.

      Nikon D850 is to appear on sale in September. Most interestingly, it will cost about $3300.
