Get this over the D7200, you will need the 4K.

Bob Duff says:

i think the function buttons on the left side prevents the screen from being selfie friendly

My friend has a D500 and I have a D7500 and we both shoot wildlife, our pictures are basically the same due to how similar it is.

meghauw says:

Does anyone know how the D5600 compares to it?

Joeteck says:

I am looking to record true 4K, not this fake 4K resolution of 2880×2160 you see so much on Amazon. Not to break the bank, what would you recommended for a YouTuber who want to go from 1080p60 to 4K HD 2160p60? I was looking at the Panasonic HC-VX981K and the Lumix DSLM line G5, G7. Must have a jack for an external microphone. 4K @ 60FPS is not necessary but if the right deal comes around, I would pull the trigger. I am not interested in the still photography aspect of the camera. Just a good quality 4K experience for my viewers. Thanks in advance.

What is the default lens for the Nikon D7500? Is it the 18-140mm VR Lens? I ordered the camera from Amazon but just got it and there's no lens, just the body.

Nev Van Clarke says:

3 months into ownership of this camera and I love it

You won’t miss the second card slot …seriously who takes selfies …and if you do errr no help for you

Battery grip …ptfff no thanks

I have ai-s lens (2) finding light is easy ….take a pic.but after a while you know the right light 💡

4K is great ….this is a really great camera people

MeisterPC says:

It looks like I am keeping my D7100. No I do not take selfies with a DSLR.

joe kelly says:

No grip has put me off , well that and total crap dx lens quality , i spent two years being let down with sigma and nikon 10-24 mm lenses on the d7200 , so they bring another dx camera out but were stuck with same old crap dx lenses , the d810 is £1100 new with tons of quality lenses .DX is a step backwards dont be fooled

Nikon d7500 camera in wedding photography us best for video plz Ripley

Nev Van Clarke says:

Single SD CARD slots is not an issue …seriously a card holds 2000 photos plus …I’ve never filled one in one day or had a card error

This is as good as the d500

I have owned my Nikon D7500 for exactly one day only and I love it. Yeah probably when you break it all down the D500 is a slightly better camera in a few different ways but at the end of the day picture quality cranks for me and I’m getting the same picture quality out of this camera as I would be 500 because the processor is the same and the sensor is the same and I will be using the same lenses. However find this camera I saved $750 over the D 500 and that’s a lot of coin. I have read so many people Winge about the lack of dual card slot. If we go back for five years most cameras only had one slot and no one really ever had a problem. If I’m gonna go out to someone’s wedding or something professional I would probably have a second body with me anyway as opposed to relying on the card failing or not failing. It’s more likely that something is in the camera might fail I supposed to the card and that’s where a second body would be more than useful. 128 gig card is gonna carry a lot of photos and video. Quite simply you can carry a second 128 gig card in your camera bag if you are gonna go through all of that in one shoot. As well as a spare battery if you need.

The money I saved on the D7500 will allow me to buy other bits and pieces camera. And lots of people complain about the SnapBridge app but I found it really simple to connect and pretty straightforward. In fact I had to nick on cameras and to switch between the two using SnapBridge is actually quite simple. I would say one thing though it’s probably a lot easier to use an iPad or a tablet as opposed to a smart phone which will fill up really quickly. The image quality is simply outstanding on this camera and I love you to the cows come home it will do still photography as well as the D500 as it simply is the same sensor and same processor. I’m not going to bad today D500 at all as it is a great camera also but the amount of paper in the stain for the D7500 unwarranted we really analyse the facts. As jarred says the guts of these two cameras is the same.

Okay so the D500 10 frames for second as opposed to 8 but really what sporting events or photography is really tell you lies that two frames for second difference. For the majority of us he’s taking photos that really is not going to make a huge difference and again I think so many people are just looking at the fault of the D7500 instead of embracing what it is which is a really beast of a camera for 1300 bucks or thereabouts.

Remember the D500 is $750-$800 more expensive. To me it is not one third better camera than that is the D500.

And honestly the 24 megapixels down to 21 or 20.9 Is not a factor I have seen the raw images from my Nikon D3 400 which is 24 megapixels compared To this camera and I cannot pick the difference. If you are doing a 30” x 15” canvas sure we might see some pixelation in massive size prints that who does this type of prints.

The video is very similar in both these cameras it’s really good again I point to the fact that this camera is almost $800 cheaper. You cannot buy a product that is $800 cheaper and expect to get the same specs as the D500. And while most people do not see the benefit of a pop-up flash I do and it is useful in certain circumstances. So if you owned a D 500 and you needed to buy a flash that’s another hundred bucks also on top. I understand the love for the D7500 people need to stop criticising the D7500 because they love the D500 that’s simply stupid.

I also see one major benefit to the D7500 that the D500 does not have and that’s the proximity sensor where the monitor turns off when your eye comes up to the viewfinder. That is brilliant and it’s really really good the first time I used it it’s almost like the camera is watching you.

Also the D7500 is lighter. When you’re can you camera around 7-8 hours on a hike somewhere in the middle of nowhere that’s gonna make a hell of a difference and also just holding it remember holding a camera still free hand is a huge difference when the camera is lighter.

Okay I’m not gonna bag the D500 as it is a brilliant camera but the D7 500 for almost 1/3 the cost of the D500 it’s a bloody awesome value camera and I think if the D500 didn’t exist then we would be raving about this D7500 but we’re not because there is a similar camera that has a few more features that were pissed off that this camera doesn’t have when in actual fact they are different cameras and that different markets.

My estimation some prices are Australian dollars. I love the Nikon D750.
