For some people, photography is more than passion. It is a way of life. There are very few individuals who have never picked up a camera before. Those that have, be it through a vague interest or maybe there was a camera lying around have had the urge to use it. The fascination with the technology is ever present in our mind, and when we see a camera, we have the immediate instinct to want to take pictures with it. It might be due to this that many people feel like photography isn’t so much an art when compared to paintings because it is a much easier form to get into for just about anyone.
The gadgets are also fun to use, and the camera the photographer uses makes a significant impact on the quality of the pictures they take. Here we will talk about the Nikon D500 vs D750. A camera immortalizes anything that you point it at and having the right one by your side also makes the act of taking pictures a much more pleasant and satisfying one.
The first camera is the Nikon D500 DX-Format Digital SLR. It has a 20.9MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor and Expeed 5 image processor. It may seem at first glance to be somewhat underwhelming but contained in its smooth body is a camera with heavy-duty processing power. This camera is ready to go wherever you do and is ready to capture images with ultra clear clarity and resolution. From the hustle and bustle of the city to the magnificent wildlife, the Nikon D500 is an ideal travel buddy for your wandering soul.
The camera has a sensitivity range of ISO 100-51,200, and you can view in awe of your 20.9 Megapixel pictures on a 3.2” tilt high-resolution touchscreen display and share them via a built-in SnapBridge which consists of WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities. It weighs about 1.9 lbs and can record a stunning 4K at 30 frames per second. It strikes a perfect balance in its pictures and is a handling beast.
The Nikon D500 focuses its strengths into its handling and usability. It is light and feels small, but the grip on the D500 is phenomenal. The joystick is fluid and fun to play with and also moves the AF point around as well as activating it with a press just like a button. The articulating display is another welcome addition, and the playback of images is so fast you could take a burst of 100 images and play them right back by holding down the direction button. It is one hell of a great camera, but it has its share of downsides which are even though it specializes in handling and usability, it is a crop sensor body and will never really be better than a full sensor body.
The second camera is the Nikon D750 FX-Format Digital SLR. Unlike the D500, it has a 24.3 MP CMOS image sensor and Expeed 4 image processor. The D750 has a feature set unlike full frame DSLRs its size. Fast and responsive, it can shoot full HD videos between 24p to 60p and comes with its built-in WiFi connectivity and can shoot up to 6.5 frames per second at full resolution. It is a powerful tool that can bring life into your vision or vision into your life with pro-caliber video features.
Those that find inspiration everywhere can find a use for this camera. It can switch between still pictures and video without missing a beat and can deliver the look only a full framed DSLR can achieve. It is a fast camera as well as smooth with dead accurate focus and is light weighing at only 1.6 pounds. The grip is pretty thick and can be a pleasure for some people to hold, and the controls are very easy to manage. Images are clear cut with a 24.3-megapixel lens with good quality and color. It has superb tracking ability in moving objects in bright or low light conditions specifically if you are to record birds in flight.
The D750 has a 3.2-inch Vari-angle LCD that is also quite sturdy. It can color balance and can be matched to an external monitor. It is cutting edge in its HD video capabilities and is as suitable to a daily life usage as it is to a filming and videography. It can achieve an image quality few other manufacturers can even match and is a beautiful choice of a camera.
At the end of the day, I would personally say the Nikon d500 is the better choice. I think portability and usability is far more accessible to the general public unless you seriously want to get into photography. The d500 also is a lot lighter making it easier to carry and already comes with Bluetooth and wireless making a far better choice than the d750 in my opinion.
