Nikon D7500 vs D7200 Review

Nikon’s announcement today of their latest mid-range Digital SLR, the Nikon D7500, brings with it some very welcome new features for Nikon shooters who might be looking to upgrade from the Nikon D7200 or even the D7100, or even the D7000.

The D7500 is a DX format crop-sensor enthusiast (mid-range) level DSLR that replaces the D7200, with a feature-set that borrows from its big brother, the D500, making it a very capable and competitive camera.

Image Quality


The Nikon D7500 inherits the 20.9 megapixel DX format CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter from its big brother, the Nikon D500. Although this means a decrease in the pixel count and this might at first glance seem like a downgrade, in reality it means that the D7500 will produce sharper and more detailed images with less noise than the D7200. 

This is because although the sensors are physically the same dimensions, they are populated by fewer pixels which means that each pixel has more room to breathe, and since digital noise is caused by the heat build up between pixels, they will operate more efficiently to deliver clearer images. This will be particularly evident in the higher ISO range.

It looks like The Great Race for Megapixels might be finally over.

Low Light Capability


The Nikon D7500 will feature greatly improved low light capability over its predecessor, the D7200. With a sensor featuring a lower pixel count, the D7500 borrows the same sensor from the much loved Nikon D500, and will benefit from reduced noise from it.

Particularly important for shooting in low light, this new sensor means that the D7500 now has an extendable ISO sensitivity down to ISO 50 and up to an incredible ISO 1,640,000, while its native ISO range has improved over the D7200 and now stands at ISO 100 to 51,200.

Speed


On the speed front the Nikon D7500 beats the D7200 as well as it boasts the EXPEED 5 processor, compared to the EXPEED 4 in the D7200.

This becomes evident in the continuous shooting speeds between the two cameras. Whereas the D7200 was only capable of 6fps in DX mode, the D7500 will happily shoot at approx. 8fps in DX mode - impressive statistics for a mid-level DSLR such as this.


Video Quality


As we've come to expect from the latest cameras being released in 2017, the Nikon D7500 comes with Ultra High Definition 4K video recording capability. 

Whereas the Nikon D7200 was only able to record Full HD 1080p video, the D7500 gives you 4K quality at 3840 x 2160 resolution, 30p (progressive), 25p, & 24p, and will do Full HD 1920 x 1080 at 60p. 

The Nikon D7500 vs D7200 will record 4K video in MOV and MP4 file formats and in H.264 or MPEG-4 compression.

Touchscreen


A brand new, and much welcomed feature on the Nikon D7500 is the introduction of a tiltable touchscreen. While the D7200 only had a fixed viewable, non-touchscreen, the D7500 has a 3.2 inch, tinting LCD touchscreen.

In addition to the new tilting touchscreen, the D7500 also features a 922k-dot LCD eye-sensor controlling viewfinder.
