With the D7500, Nikon has produced a camera that incorporates an exceptional combination of stunning image quality, impressive speed, astounding lowlight ability and 4K UHD video capture. And, perhaps most amazing of all, the D7500 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 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. Needless to say, the D7500 excels whether shooting fast-action sports, stunning low-light landscapes, distant wildlife, glamorous portraits or multimedia content. It also comes with a host of nice-to-have features, including a built-in flash, New Auto Picture Control function that analyzes the picture scene and automatically generates a tone curve within the camera, built-in Bluetooth and WiFi, and the ability to capture 4K UHD (3840 × 2160/30p) as well as awe-inspiring 4K UHD time-lapse movies in-camera.

Bring your vision to life

The D7500 uses the same 20.9 MP DX-format image sensor and EXPEED 5 image processing engine as the D500, taking your photos and videos to the next level. Capture with phenomenal sharpness and tonality, especially in low light situations like concerts, sporting events, parties and events.

Born from a desire for flagship performance and innovation in a more compact and streamlined connected camera, the D7500 delivers the game-changing resolution, ISO range, image processing and energy efficiency of the award-winning D500 in an enthusiast-level DSLR. Simply put, the D7500 is built to outperform any camera in its class with top-tier image quality, blazing speed, flawless autofocus, 4K Ultra HD video and pro-grade creative tools—all in a comfortable, rugged design. This is a camera for the new generation of creators.

Speed & performance

With a wide ISO range up to 51,200, remarkable noise reduction, rapid write speeds and virtually zero lag, the D7500 is ready for your next challenge.

  • 8 fps continuous shooting

    Capture 8 frames per second continuously, up to 100 JPEG Fine frames or up to 50 14-bit lossless compressed RAW frames. With up to 50 RAW shots captured, continue taking photos even while the previous RAW images are being written to the memory card.
  • Powerful focusing system

    Lock on to fast subjects with 51 available focus points, 15 cross-type sensors and group-area AF for sharper, faster detection in low light.
  • Brilliant metering

    The D7500 uses the same 180,000-pixel RGB sensor as the D500 to detect human faces and improve AF performance during high speed shooting.

Follow your inspiration

The D7500 handles like a dream—and it handles the elements too—so you're free to follow your passion, wherever it leads.

  • Tilting 3.2-inch touchscreen

    Tilt the large 3.2-in touchscreen up or down to shoot at high or low angles and simply touch where you want focus when using Live View. Quickly swipe through your shots, pinch to zoom and more.
  • Rugged design

    The D7500 uses a Monocoque design and extensive weather sealing to withstand moisture, dust and some heavy use.
  • Comfortable performance

    Slimmer ergonomics and a deeper grip improve stability for handheld shooting and comfort for all day shooting or using telephoto, tele-zoom or all-in-one NIKKOR lenses.
  • Up to 950 shots* on one battery

    DSLRs excel at energy efficiency, and the D7500 is particularly efficient. Capture approximately 950 shots on a single battery charge.

    * Per CIPA standards, with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi turned off

Master the light

Add balance, depth and drama to your images with the D7500’s built-in flash, which uses detailed, in-camera scene analysis to add just the right amount of light to your subject. Ready to get even more creative with light? The D7500 has wireless commander capability with up to 2 groups (A/B) of line-of-sight Speedlights or 3 groups (C/D/E) of radio-controlled Speedlights*.

* With optional WR-R10 wireless remote controller and SB-5000 Speedlight(s)

4K ultra HD video

If you’ve been itching to enter the world of filmmaking, the D7500 is your gateway DSLR. Record rich and detailed 4K Ultra HD or Full HD videos up to 29 minutes 59 seconds through industry-leading NIKKOR lenses while using pro-level video features like power aperture control to adjust aperture while recording and touch focus control. Create beautiful 4K Ultra HD time-lapse movies. Movies can be recorded in MP4 or the conventional MOV format, allowing easy playback on smart devices. The D7500 adjusts to your creative workflow with the freedom to record to an external device, the camera’s memory card or both simultaneously.

Creativity on demand

Beyond its outstanding image capture, the D7500 includes powerful performance enhancing features. In-camera batch processing improves handling of large numbers of RAW images. Auto AF fine-tune in Live View is also inherited from the D500 to simplify adjustment for minor variations between the camera and lens. Advanced Picture Control tools, including a new Auto option; Auto ISO in Manual Mode and Zebra stripes for detecting overblown highlights help you take full creative control. A new and improved multiple exposure feature gives you the choice of saving each individual frame in addition to the final composited image.

Connected to your world

Share your most impressive shots with the world the minute you take them. Install Nikon's SnapBridge app on a compatible phone or tablet and connect to the D7500 for instant photo sharing, automatic backups and even remote camera triggering—great for wildlife shooting, parties, self portraits and group shots with you in them.

The centerpiece of your Nikon ecosystem

Grow your skills with Nikon's renowned imaging system. From your first cherished NIKKOR lens to the latest in your indispensable collection, NIKKOR optics truly bring out the full potential of the D7500.
