    Worthy upgrade in the D7xxx line

    I picked up the D7500 over the weekend. I haven't put it through all of its paces yet. I may come back to update this later. But I figured I'd put some quick thoughts together for anyone on the fence. I've been using a D7100 for a few years and so far the D7500 is definitely worth the upgrade. I have already noticed a big difference in image quality and speed, things that are very important to me. I have not tested it with all my lenses and flash. The autofocus has been very good although it's not the same as with the D500. I have yet to test out running children/dogs in AF-C to see how the focus does. I also haven't done extensive low light testing but the few that I took around 800-1600 ISO looked really good. Some things you should be aware of...these are not necessarily "cons" to me but they may be for you: 1. Adobe and Apple have not released updates for this camera yet. Therefore, Photoshop and Lightroom will not import or process the files yet (JPG or RAW). Video files were recognized by my computer and LR5 though. There are workarounds via free software but it's more time consuming. These may be a disruption to your normal work flow as it has been to mine. Hopefully these updates will be out soon as they normally do. 2. The top window is noticeably smaller than the D7xxx series. However, the shutter speed and aperture # are prominent and fairly big. The other info is squeezed closer together and a few things are missing (i.e. file type). But it's all there on the bigger info screen on the rear. 3. You cannot put a battery grip on it. 4. There is only one SD card slot. 5. Battery life is supposed to be a little shorter than the D7100/7200. But again there are some good pros: 1. Best crop frame sensor available now by Nikon 2. Noticeably lighter than the D7100/7200 3. Better in low light than D7100/7200 4. Touch screen functions 5. Can send pics via wi-fi to your phone. I've read a lot about the D500, which the D7500 is sort of the baby brother of. That thing is a beast that can compete with some of Nikon's full frame cameras. However, it's not for me and I suspect many other people: it is big, fairly heavy, and approaching the cost of a full frame camera. It also only has one SD slot (I don't use the other type it has) and doesn't have a built in flash. Yes, built in flash isn't always the best but I'd rather have it than not. For those of us not wanting or needing the D500 or an entry level FF, the D7500 is a no brainer. An alternative is to wait and see what Nikon does with the updates for the D750, D610, and D810, which may be coming soon. It's possible the cost of FF bodies will come down. However, I for one, am not ready for that leap yet and think the D7500 will serve me well for years to come. Hopefully, I don't eat these words once I put it through more testing as my workflow is restored.

    I bought this a week or two after it was released as an upgrade to my D7100. While the D7100 has been great, the D7500 is a very worthy upgrade. I considered the D500, the D750, and waiting for Nikon's new full frame releases but ultimately decided crop frame is still right for me at this point. The D7500 is basically the little brother of the D500, which (from what I've read) is incredible and bumped the D7200 as Nikon's new top crop frame camera. However for me, the D500 was too big, lacked a pop up flash, and was almost the same cost as some of their FF cameras. Pros: 1. New sensor (same as the D500). The colors and sharpness are excellent...noticeably better than my D7100. The noise and autofocus are considerably better too. There's also a new group focus point option and auto fine tune that I'm still experimenting with. 2. Lighter and slightly smaller than the D7100. Much easier to carry around. 3. It's FAST!....much faster than my D7100. 4. Rear touch screen that also tilts...comes in handy. Had that in my first DSLR (D5100) and it's nice having it back, especially for video. 5. 4K video and wi-fi/bluetooth. Haven't taken full advantage of 4K video yet but even the 1080 looks better than my D7100. I can now upload pics if I want on the fly (takes a few steps but great option to have). To save battery I leave it on airplane mode until I want to upload. Cons: The main con for me is that the D7500 only has one SD slot. I loved having an extra slot in the D7100...mostly only as a back up when I left my main one in my computer. I only used the 2nd slot during a shoot a few times in 3 years. So, now I have to be more aware of where my card is or keep extras in my bag or vehicle. I've seen complaints about this but many countered (and I agree) saying that 2nd slot rarely, if ever, "saved" a shoot when the first card went bad. Others have complained that you cannot put a battery grip on it. This was not a big deal for me. Nikon also dropped the total megapixels and reduced the monitor resolution from the D7200 and D500. These changes will not even be noticeable to most users. The last thing to consider is some editing programs (Lightroom and Photoshop in particular) have not added this camera profile to their software yet. Therefore, they will not recognize the NEF's or JPG's from this camera. This has been an inconvenience for me b/c to view and edit my photos, I've had to open the RAW files in Nikon Capture NXD (which is free), convert them to TIFFs, and then import into Lightroom where I can then work on the files. It usually takes Adobe some time (a month or two) to do this so I expect an update to be coming soon.

    Another Stellar Nikon DSLR

    I've been a Nikon shooter since before digital. Nothing in my humble opinion compares to Nikon. This camera replaced my Nikon D7100, which is still a very capable camera, but the D7500 is several steps ahead. With fewer (but larger pixels), this camera shoots with stunning clarity. It's faster with 8 FPS continuous and the inclusion of what makes the top end D500 such a great camera, is also shared with the D7500. I love how this camera weighs fractionally less than the D7100, but has a more weather sealed body and the inclusion of an articulated screen is a nice addition. This camera sacrifices one memory card slot, but with memory so inexpensive these days, a 128 GB card will hold more photos than I could possibly take at one time. It's also a great addition that this camera is fully Bluetooth and Wifi enabled and communicates easily to Nikon apps to quickly and seamlessly transfer your pictures to your mobile device. This is a great addition to the Nikon lineup and is perfect for someone who is looking for something that will challenge their creative abilities more than the less expensive gear, but won't break the bank like their top end gear.

    Moved up from a D5500 and am enjoying the additional 3 frames per sec (to 8), better high-iso performance in lower light and additional ability to access frequently used functions more quickly. The negatives most commonly cited (single card slot & no vertical grip) were not issues for me. Also, considered the d7200 but the D7500 just felt more comfortable in my hands (the deeper grip is really nice) and handling it felt more "natural" for me. I have tested the camera's iso-performance up to 12,800 in indoor lighting at some events and have been very pleased with the JPEGs rendered (haven't tested RAW yet) - compared to my D5500 (which already performs well in low-light), I seem to be getting 1 or 2 stops of additional ISO performance to get images of comparable noise & "quality" (just my unscientific observations). If you're looking to upgrade from a d3xxx or d5xxx series, it'll definitely be worth it. If you already have a d7200, I'm honestly not sure - there are enough professional reviews out there that comment on this topic so my opinion wouldn't be worth much. If you want a D500 but can't justify the cost, I think the D7500 would be a satisfying compromise.

    Buy it. Excellent all around Nikon DSLR

    First a background... I am a Pentaxian and will always be a Pentaxian. I love my Pentax DSLRs. I wanted to try Nikon so I purchased the D7500 at Best Buy. Overall, I think it's a great camera. I own the top of the line professional Pentax DSLR (the K-1)so I will not compare it with the mid-level Nikon D7500. But just looking and using this camera for what it is, it's pretty solid. I paired it with a Nikon 200-500mm VR lens. Yes ithe D7500 only has one SD card slot..so what. It's not a deal breaker, takes 10 secs to place a new SD card. So it has far less shots it can take with the fully charged En-EL15a battery than the Nikon D7200..solution: purchase a back-up battery. So it has only 20MP vs a Nikon D7200...who cares. End of the day, no one will notice it. Buy the Nikon D7500, you will love it.

    Volunteered to photograph my son's freshman football team - knew I needed to upgrade my gear. Read many reviews, tested a few, and then I took a leap and spent more than I planned - haven't looked back since. The D7500 does not disappoint! It delivers amazing images. They are rich, vibrant, and professional; ergonomics are great. To date, I have only used it for sports photography, but it will be my primary camera from here on out. Get this camera, you will not regret it. BTW, I've been asked to shoot JV and Varsity now too (maybe this camera is too good).

    After loosing my brass for about two hours, countless Google searches, and yes reading the pretty much useless Nikon D7500 Manual, I was able to connect to the camera for two seconds and then caput; connection no more.... Right now, on the phone with a Customer Service rep from Nikon USA that seem to be not too useful, I still have not been able to connect to the camera. On the phone for 59 minutes now... Now trying something else, I was asked to un-installed SnapBridge App from my iPhone, reinstalled SnapBridge, went though all possible motions.. . One hour and thirteen minutes later, HA! I am connected to the camera. hmmmmm how I miss my D7200 so simple, so easy, I do not know why I switched (note I did not use upgraded), wait I do know: I wanted TIME LAPSE!

    Major upgrade from D7000

    Have owned a D7000 for several years and recently decided to upgrade to the D7500. Amazing camera and very happy I took the plunge. Bought 'body only' as I already had ample compatible lenses. Extremely similar controls/menus as the D7000 so easy learning curve. Liked having a dual SD card slot in the D7000 but otherwise every change has been a positive to me: - Wifi/Bluetooth works perfectly... really cool to take a DSLR photo and have a copy ready to text on my iphone! - Photo quality is superior to the D7000... have taken several side by side comparisons and every time the D7500 looks better - Low light quality is amazing - LOVE the rotating screen All in all extremely happy with the new camera, HIGHLY recommended
