11 Buf­fer ca­pac­ity, NEF and JPEG

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

For any­one in­ter­ested in pho­tograph­ing mov­ing sub­jects, the cam­era’s max­i­mum con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing speed is clearly im­por­tant. At eight frames per sec­ond, the D7500 is pretty speedy, and sits ex­actly half­way be­tween the cheaper D7200 (6fps) and the higher-end Nikon D500 (10fps). But the max­i­mum frame rate is only half the story, be­cause the cam­era needs to be able to keep this speed up for as long as pos­si­ble, and that’s where the buf­fer ca­pac­ity comes in.

This is where the D7500 re­ally scores. Its new sen­sor and Expeed 5 pro­ces­sor give it a buf­fer ca­pac­ity of no fewer than 50 NEF files, and that’s us­ing the high-qual­ity, 14-bit set­ting with loss­less com­pres­sion. This doesn’t match the in­cred­i­ble 200-NEF buf­fer of the D500, but it’s way ahead of the 18-NEF buf­fer ca­pac­ity of the D7200. For a non­pro­fes­sional cam­era, the D7500 cer­tainly suc­ceeds in de­liv­er­ing ex­cep­tional con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing per­for­mance.
