Let the Nikon D7500 handle your heavy lifting when it comes to event photography
April 13, 2018
CES is the global stage for innovation and we had the opportunity to see some astounding breakthrough technologies for the upcoming year. The Nikon D7500 was the ideal camera to use during our time spent traversing the showroom floors of CES to share with our audience our experiences through pictures.
(Note: Following CES, the D7500 also helped WirelessWednesday.live get through NASCAR Media Days, the PGA Golf Show, Surf Expo and more.)
The D7500 inspires performance for their users to use their creativity with a lens to create top tier quality images. It employs the same CMOS image sensor used in the Nikon DX flagship model D500, offering 20.9 megapixels. The camera also has a 51-point autofocus system that allows one to quickly focus on erratically moving and low-contrast subjects. The built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity allows us to connect to a smart device through an application. The SnapBridge app installed in our phone we were able to automatically transfer images taken or upload them to the Nikon Image Space.

The D7500 allows the user to go even further and show the world in motion through its 4K UHD video and advanced filmmaking features. You can capture smooth footage when working without a tripod, or using a single-focal-length (prime) lens without optical VR. The camera lets you record up to 29:59 in 4K UHD/30p as well as Full HD, that can be played in MP4 format for smooth playback on smart devices. It has versatile sound controls, the microphone sensitivity levels can be adjusted in 20 increments while monitoring the sound level indicator during recording.
Nikon’s D7500 has an ideal body design and a great battery life for those on the move for hours at a time walking the convention centers from morning into early evening. The body has durability against shock through its lightweight monocoque structure made of carbon fiber composite material. Those in attendance waded through the rain, with the weather sealing applied to the camera body prevents water droplets and dust from damaging the electronics. A full day’s worth of shooting can be done through one battery charge, as approximately 950 shots6 with the included EN-EL15a battery.
