Nikon introduced Wednesday its new mid-range DX-format DSLR in the D7500 offering a 20.9-megapixel CMOS image sensor (no optical low-pass filter), 4K Ultra HD video recording, EXPEED 5 image processing and a wide ISO range for good natural low-light shots.
The D7500 will ship this summer at a $1,249.95 suggested retail price for the body only; or in a kit with a AF-S 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens for $1,749.95.
Read more on the Nikon D7500 4K DSLR after the jump:
Set to succeed the popular Nikon D7200 , it is capable of recording up to 4K Ultra HD video at up to 30 fps with a 1.5x crop, like the Nikon D500 flagship APS-C sensor camera, and offers the ability to simultaneously output 4K video over the HDMI port while storing a compressed file to an SD card in the camera’s single SD-card slot.
The D7500 adds a power aperture for smooth and step-less depth-of-field transitions. For sound capture in includes a mic and headphone jack.
For still image shooting the D7500 EXPEED 5 processor is 30 percent faster than that in the D7200 which helps the D7500 achieve a fast burst-shooting speed of 8fps, greater buffer depth, and better video capability.
The camera also offers the D7200’s excellent 51-point AF system with 15 cross-type sensors. It also includes a 3.2-inch 922,000-dot resolution touchscreen LCD.
The camera’s native ISO range spans from 100-51,200. The expanded ISO range goes up to a 1.64 million equivalent.
For improved connectivity, the D7500 throws in Nikon’s Snapbridge, which uses a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) “always on” connection to link with a compatible mobile device for fast file sharing.
