Nikon’s new D7500 is the newest addition to the company’s family of DX-format DSLR shooters and comes with part of the sensor tech from the current flagship Nikon D500. Inside the Nikon D7500 is the same 20.9-megapixel sensor and processor as the Nikon D500, which has a native ISO range of 100 to 51,200. ISO can be expanded to an equivalent of the 1.64 million.

Nikon D7500 Design

The body has been redesigned slightly to make it a little smaller and lighter. On the back of the Nikon D7500 is a 3.2-inch tilting LCD touchscreen along with 922,000 dots and shaved off 35g of weight. On top of the camera is a pop-up flash that can be used as a Commander for remote Speedlights.
