12 4K video with HDMI out

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

Nikon’s ad­di­tion of 4K video to the D7500 is very timely – and it’s another fea­ture made pos­si­ble by the new sen­sor and EXPEED 5 pro­ces­sor com­bi­na­tion. It shoots in the 16:9 UHD for­mat at a res­o­lu­tion of 3,840 x 2,160 pix­els and at a frame rate of 30, 25 or 24fps. It of­fers HDMI out­put to ex­ter­nal recorders, which will please videog­ra­phers, and it also of­fers both ex­ter­nal mic and head­phone sock­ets – so it will be pos­si­ble to use higher-qual­ity mi­cro­phones, and to mon­i­tor the sound while record­ing. Like Nikon’s other 4K-en­abled DSLRs, though, the D7500 ap­plies a ‘crop fac­tor’ dur­ing 4K video record­ing. 4K video uses a 3,840 x 2,160 pixel area in the cen­tre of the sen­sor, which equates to a crop fac­tor of 1.45x. This means that your wide-an­gle lenses will be nowhere near as wide as when shoot­ing stills. This might not be a deal-breaker, but it’s cer­tainly an in­con­ve­nience.
