Nikon D7500 lab tests
We use Imatest and DxO Analyzer hardware and software to test cameras for their colour accuracy (colour error) signal to noise ratio (the amount of noise in the images) and dynamic range (their ability to capture detail in very bright and dark areas). We also pick three rival cameras to test them against.
We compared the D7500’s lab results with three of its rivals: Canon’s EOS 80D, Fujifilm’s X-T20 and Nikon’s own D7200. In our test for colour error, it beat all three of its rivals.
Raw signal-to-noise ratio
The D7500’s newer sensor gives it a clear noise advantage over the older D7200. It proves a close match for the Canon EOS 80D, but neither can match the Fujifilm X-T2.
Raw dynamic range
The D7500’s victory over the D7200 is so narrow as to be insignificant. All cameras turned in a very good performance, with the X-T2 edging slightly ahead at higher ISOs.
