If you buy a new gray market D7500, is the charger voltage 110 volts and the internal camera language in English? Thanks Bob

I am not sure about the language as it could be set to other language but you should be able to set it back. The manual listed 2 charger. The one for US market (which is not gray) is for 120VAC 60Hz. The one for other countries is 110 to 240 VAC and 50 to 60Hz. So either one would work in the US if you can plug it in. They may come with different plug.

You asked this same question recently and got two pages of answers.

If you read my original post and see the many answers, you will note that the answers were not addressing my questions. This often happens on this site! Keep smiling! Bob

But to answer you short question. Can you use your gray market camera? Yes I don't think it misses any features vs the US one. You can make it function the same as a US imported one. They built the camera the same. They may set the default language to a different language than English. The charger would be either US or Universal. The manual may not be in English but you can down load one. So you don't miss much by buying gray except that you don't have warranty and Nikon wouldn't fix your camera even you pay for the repair.

The Nikon batter charger should be from 120V-240V lie my Df, yours should no problem, and the language can be set to different language by going to the manual set up.

Read on the side of the charger it usually says. "Switching [mode] power supplies " ... " Power supplies that use auto-ranging, supporting input voltages from ~100 VAC – 250 VAC, with no input voltage selector switch. " Or go on eBay and buy batteries and charger for about $20 and know for sure.

Did you ask your telephone for the answer? Did you google? Did you ask Wikipedia [not Wikileaks or Russian KGB ... that is for Presidents]... read:

The charger is a fancy dude with a display showing the amount of charge.

Gray market or not, all the cameras are build the same, regardless where they will be sold. Battery chargers will usually work with any voltage in any country.

Where will you get your gray market camera serviced Nikon won't touch it. Don't save a few bucks for a lot of problems later.

You are providing bad information. There is only one charger, the MH-25a. It is 110-240 50/60 Hz. It accepts either a simple plug or a cable with the proper plug for the country in which it is sold. You can easily swap the plug/cable to whatever you need. The socket is similar to the one used by many laptop power bricks. I have several for different European countries I tend to visit.

The manual only lists a single charger on page 19 and in the tech specs.

I HAVE a D7500 US model, not gray market. There is only ONE MH-25a charger. On it it says 100-240V and 50/60Hz input.

The manual only lists one charger, the MH-25a.

There are not two models. Only the one.

As a matter of fact, it has been many years since I have seen a new electronic device with a charger/power adapter that is not 100-240 50/60Hz. Those days are long gone, thankfully.
