Nikon D7500 Landscape Settings
The Nikon D7500 is a highly sought-after DSLR for Landscape Photography. It has many other outstanding features. The 20MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor allows you to capture detailed images in even the most difficult lighting conditions. The camera boasts a 51 point autofocus system and a steady shooting speed of 8 fps. This makes it an ideal choice for fast-paced photography.

Autofocus allows the D7500 to capture creative images in a wide range of situations and keep up with fast-moving action. The 51 focal points cover a large area of the frame. 15 cross-type sensors offer more powerful detection power and one central point that is compatible with f/8.
The autofocus system is therefore the best tool to use when trying to capture the perfect landscape shot. Even though you don’t have to move the objects in your shot, it is still necessary for you to achieve the best focus.
Your landscape photo’s overall exposure plays an important role in determining its impact. You must be cautious when setting the ISO sensitivity. For optimal light exposure of your landscape photos, you can select from a range of ISO settings.
As this matches any ISO, you can set your ISO sensitivity to 100. You can keep Auto ISO sensitivity on. This could cause this to be turned off quite often, as in tripod-based work, where you want the same ISO. Maximum sensitivity can reach 3200.
You need to be familiar with Auto-area and Group-area AAF modes to better understand the Advanced Scene Recognition System. To keep moving and ‘low-contrast subjects in sharp focus, the camera uses a group area AF mode. It employs five AF points. The camera’s Advanced Scene Recognition system makes it possible to identify landscape subjects with pinpoint accuracy in auto-area AF.
Its 180K-pixel RGB sensor can make it work. The D7500’s 180K-pixel RGB sensor can detect AF down to -3EV. This allows you to capture beautiful landscapes even in dimly lit moonlight. The D7500’s auto AF fine-tune function allows for even better focus accuracy. This allows you to adjust each lens’ precision.
This mode allows you to select the shutter speed that will give you the proper exposure. When the camera is handheld, you can select a faster shutter speed of 1/125th second. You can choose a speed of at least 1/200th seconds or higher for fast-moving actions. E.g. To take a photo of a waterfall you can lower the shutter speed to 1/60 and place the camera on a tripod. The waterfall will appear soft and serene while keeping the scene in focus.
This mode allows you to choose the aperture (f/stop), which will allow the camera’s shutter speed to determine the exposure. The aperture setting determines the depth of field. This is how much of a photo is in focus from background to foreground and everything in-between. Higher aperture settings, like f/8, F/12, and F/16, allow for a deeper field that brings more of the scene to focus.
You can get the most out of landscape photography once you are comfortable with the features of the Nikon D7500.
