The Nikon D500 has an image stabilizer, however the Nikon D750 does not have an image stabilizer. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

One hundred and two more auto Focus (AF) pointss Edit
The Nikon D500 is a 153.00 auto Focus (AF) points digital camera, whereas the Nikon D750 only has 51.00 auto Focus (AF) pointss.
One more memory slots Edit
The Nikon D500 is a two memory slots digital camera, whereas the Nikon D750 only has one memory slots.
A lot higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Nikon D500 is 2,359,000 pixels display resolution, but the Nikon D750 is only a 1,228,800 pixels display resolution digital camera (1,130,200 pixels lower).
0.3x higher magnification Edit
The Nikon D500 has a magnification of 1x, however the Nikon D750 is only a 0.7x lens magnification ratio digital camera (0.3x lower). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

Ten more battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The number of battery life (CIPA standard)s on the Nikon D500 is 1240.00, but the Nikon D750 only takes 1230.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

The Nikon D500 is a more popular choice amongst buyers. It ranks No. 21564 by sales volume in our digital cameras, however the Nikon D750 ranks No. 52687.
8 Reasons For
14% higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D750 has a megapixel of 24.3MP, however the Nikon D500 is only a 20.9MP digital camera (3.4MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

3.37MP more total megapixels Edit
The Nikon D750 has a total megapixels of 24.93MP, whereas the Nikon D500 is only a 21.56MP digital camera (3.37MP less).
50 smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
The Nikon D750 is a 50 minimum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Nikon D500 is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera (50 bigger).
Bigger eye relief Edit
Nikon D750 is 21mm Eye relief. That's 5mm bigger than the Nikon D500 (21mm). Read more

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Lighter Edit

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
