    Can’t find a contact option on the website so I’m putting this here: The Nikon d7500 sensor specs used in the Imaging Toolbox are incorrect. When choosing Nikon d7500 it is using a pixel size of 5.90 but in reality it’s 4.22. A significant enough difference to warrant a little update. The native resolution is 5568 x 3712 on a 23.5 x 15.7 mm chip.
