Nikon D7500 has been a new challenger in the photography world that outrageously challenges numerous DSLRs come in its range. Though D7500 has been kept in the Mid-range DSLRs section, but the beast specifications of the camera that are mostly borrowed by Nikon D500, such as 20.9MP sensor and a few more significantly helps the camera to be counted in the list of professionals. However, the D7500 made a vast improvement over its predecessor (Nikon D7200), but at few sections its specifications are very similar. On the other hand, Nikon D7200 has still been counted one of the best cameras that are available under attainable price that gives you feature, quality and more. Let’s go in details…

Nikon D7500 vs. Nikon D7200
You can see both the two cameras are using the similar size of APS-C sensor. However, there is a crucial difference in their resolution – Nikon D7500 uses 20.9 MP sensors and Nikon D7200 employs 24MP sensors and both these two don’t incorporate optical low pass filter, but an advanced Expeed 5 image processing engine inside D7500 can tweak here compared to Nikon D7200’s Expeed 4. Eventually, when both implement same sized sensor then we will barely see any big difference in the image quality. But still due to maximum number of effective pixels Nikon D7200 can produce large print of the target subject.
With introducing E-VR, Nikon D7500 became the first DSLR to offer electronic Image stabilization that we see mostly in the compact cameras. Well, this E-VR 3-axis I.S will greatly help the users while recording Full HD video (1080p) or below this, ensuring crisp and blur free videos while shooting handheld. On the other hand, no vibration reduction mechanism has been engineered in Nikon D7200, so you need a lens that incorporates optical image stabilizer inside it to deliver you sharp and crisp images.
Getting Monochromatic photos in the lowlight conditions is not an easy task, but your camera with maximum ISO range can make it possible. Here, in this comparison, you can see that Nikon D7500 offers and extended ISO range of 1.64 M. However, you can get outstanding image quality all up to ISO 25,600 with almost negligible noise. On the other hand, its competitor, Nikon D7200 lets you extend the ISO level upto 102400 only.
Continuous shooting speed
The Nikon D7500 can shoot continuously at speeds of up to 8 fps at full 20.9 MP resolution with AF/AE tracking for up to 200 continuous shots. Moreover, Nikon D7500 will perform well with better result during capturing fast action objects with more accuracy and also can track each and every action of the fast moving subjects more instantly compare to the 6fps of Nikon D7500.
Nikon D7500 is recommended camera for the photographers who are intended to experience Cinema since it features 3840 x 2160p @30fps (for 29 minutes). On the other side, Nikon D7200 allows you to record full HD video only. Plus the great benefit of Nikon D7500 is that it features 3-axis I.S that ultimately helps while recording Full HD (1080p) video. Means this image stabilization mechanism keeps the camera steady and produce very sharp and crisp videos.
The predecessor, D7200, comes with strong battery that allows you take almost 1110 shots at a single time, whereas Nikon D7500 allows you capture only 950 shots at a time.
We must say you to spend a few more dollars and get the latest Nikon D7500 because the camera packs remarkable features and has all the guts to lift you burning spirit of photography to the next level.
