Nikon has announced a new mid-range DSLR — D7500 — in the US. Successor to the D7200, the camera is priced at $1,249 (around Rs 80,400) for the body only. The company has not announced when the product will be launched in India.
The new Nikon D7500 has a 20.9MP DX-format sensor, along with an ISO range of 100-51,600. It supports 8fps continuous shooting and can even record videos in 4K resolution at 24, 25 and 30 frames per second. The DSLR’s image processing is taken care of by an Expeed 5 chip. It’s the same chip that the company’s high-end D500 uses.
The D7500 features a 3.2-inch LCD display that can be tilted to view images and compose shots easily. There’ an OLED electronic viewfinder as well. The camera is compatible with multiple lenses including AF NIKKOR, and type G, E and D. Nikon D7500’s shutter speed can go from 1/8000 second to 30 seconds. All usual connectivity options are there.
The last DSLR Nikon launched in India was the D5600, which was launched in November last year. The camera was launched at a starting price of Rs 53,450 for the body only. The camera comes with easy sharing features and has a 24.2MP sensor with Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor. There’s also an Expeed 4 image-processing engine, ISO range of 100-25600 and time -lapse movie functionality. The camera has a 3.2-inch variable-angle touch screen LCD, among other features.
Overall, the touch screen functions of the D5600 are the same as those found in the Nikon D5500.
