I had the chance to review the Nikon D7500 for Pocket Lint recently. In the face of stiff competition from mirrorless cameras (CSCs), the D7500 is a great DSLR ambassador.
Somewhere in a camera bag I have a Nikon D300 - it's 10 years old this month. Like the D7500, it's an enthusiast-level APS-C DSLR camera, but the two are quite different.
DSLRs have evolved somewhat and the Nikon D7500 is a case in point - it's a wonderful concoction of old and new.
Compact and solid body (though bigger than comparable CSCs). Built-in Wi-Fi and bluetooth connectivity. A simply outstanding 3.2in tilt-touchscreen. Large optical viewfinder. 4k video recording. Sharp images. Expanded ISO 50 to ISO 1,640,000 (that's not a typo).
None of these new features are gimmicks, they all genuinely improve the user experience and the images produced (plus it's easier and quicker to share the images too).
I can think of no better compliment and summary of my time with the camera other than to say I used it with a smile on my face. I've included a couple of my favourite pictures made with the camera below.
