The Nikon D7500 is a 20.9-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera using an APS-C sensor.[1] It was announced by Nikon Corporation on 12 April 2017, and started shipping on 2 June 2017. It is the successor to the Nikon D7200 as Nikon's DX format midrange DSLR.[2]


The D7500 borrows the sensor and processor from the Nikon D500,[3] whereas other features previously available in the D7200 or D500 have been omitted (single SD card slot instead of two, and no Nikon battery grip). The D7500 is the first D7XXX series without metering support for old manual focus Nikon AI type (Non-CPU) lenses.[4]

Feature reductions[edit]

Following features, which are available for the D7200 and D500, and which typically target professional photography, have been removed, so that the D7500 is set off against the D500's and D7200's market segment:

  • No battery grip will be available from Nikon nor from 3rd parties as an accessory, due to missing connectors. There are 3rd party workarounds depending on connecting a thin and fragile cable, where daily usage could damage the cable and its connector sockets easily.
  • No dual memory card slot, which protected professionals against card failure losses
  • No metering supported for older manual focus Nikkor AI (non-CPU) lenses
  • No magnesium alloy used to strengthen the body internally, now substituted with "monocoque carbon fiber composite"[5]
  • No 24 Megapixels (6000x4000), now 20.7 (5568 x 3712) (also applies to the D500 having the same sensor as the D7500)

With the camera's initial firmware version 1.01 Wi-Fi only works with Nikon's proprietary "SnapBridge" app, this also applies to the D500, D850 and D5600. Since an firmware updated to version 1.10 in May 2019 Wi-Fi was opened to third party applications.[6]
