When it comes to DSLR videography, eyes are rarely on Nikon cameras as Sony and Canon continues to be actively involved, but it seems that Nikon is finally getting serious about it with the D7500 camera, by using the 20.9-megapixel Nikon DX-format sensor, the camera is able to shoot 4K UHD videos in 30 frames per second for both regular and time-lapse formats. The D7500 is also no slouch when it comes to performance, there’s a 51-point AF system and has the ability to shoot up to 50 shots in 14-bit lossless compresed RAW, the EXPEED 5 image processing engine also ensures that pictures are captured with vibrant true-to-life colours, while ensuring noise levels are low with a native ISO range of up to 51200.
If you think all of this performance translates into a rather hefty camera, the D7500 weighs a mere 720g and comes with a deeper handgrip that makes holding it without a tripod more comfortable. The camera also has a touch display that can be used for creative framing, while allowing photographers to configure the camera’s settings easily. In terms of connectivity, the D7500 supports SnapBridge, which connects to smartphones and tablets using the camera’s WiFi and Bluetooth to perform remote shooting, image transfers, and uploading images to Nikon’s IMAGE SPACE cloud storage.
The Nikon D7500 will be available from June 2017 onwards and it comes with two kit lens options, which customers can choose to go with the AF-S DX NIKKO 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, or the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, or if you prefer, Nikon will also sell it as a body only configuration. No pricing has been mentioned yet from Nikon Malaysia, however we will update this post when we have one.
