The Nikon D750 is the latest addition to the manufacturer’s FX range of full-frame cameras, following the official Nikon announcement this morning.

Boasting a newly developed 35.9mm x 24mm 24.3-megapixel sensor, the Nikon D750 claims to be “rugged, yet agile, lightweight and durable and aimed at the aspirational photographer and hobbyist looking for the next step into full frame photography,” according to Nikon.

The new Nikon camera will sit above but run in parallel with the Nikon D610 in Nikon’s DSLR range and features a number of firsts for the brand, such as built-in Wi-Fi capability and a 3.2in, 1229K-dot tiltable LCD screen with a 170-degree viewing angle (it swings open and tilts up to 90º, and down to 75º).

The new Nikon camera is also the first FX camera with a monococque structure. Its body is smaller and lighter than its FX siblings, weighing 750g, and Nikon has enhanced its design with a longer grip indent and shorter depth of body compared to its other models.

The Nikon D750 body is carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastic on the front and front cover, with magnesium alloy on the top and rear covers.


Nikon D750 specs

Inside the Nikon D750, specs include the Expeed 4 processing engine, an ISO range of 100–12800 (extendable to 50–51,200) and a new Multi-CAM 3500IIFX 51-point AF system (15 cross-type) configurable in 9-point, 21-point, and 51-point coverage settings. The system is also sensitive down to -3 EV to enable enhanced low-light performance, Nikon says.

The Nikon D750 also boasts a newly employed Group Area AF, offering faster acquisition and improved background isolation when shooting smaller subjects against distracting backgrounds. The new Nikon camera is also f/8 compatible at 11 focus points.

High-speed continuous shooting is possible on the Nikon D750 at up to 6.5fps in both FX and DX formats.

The D750 employs Nikon’s Picture Control 2.0 system, allowing photographers to make adjustments to sharpening, contrast, brightness, hue, clarity and saturation in both still images or video.

Nikon says it has enhanced the Picture Control system to allow users to make finer adjustments at .25 increments with the Clarity setting, as well as expanded the brightness range. A new Flat rendering option also retains details and tonal information in shadows and highlights to allow for the widest possible dynamic range, Nikon says.

Nikon D750 Video Recording

The Nikon D750 also records Full HD (1080p) movies at 50p/60p frame rates, and Nikon says it has made improvements to reduce noise, moiré, and false colour.

In the Nikon D750 interface a new dedicated movie menu allows you to make adjustments to ISO (the full range from 100 to 51,200 is available, or fix the maximum Auto ISO range from ISO 200 upwards when shooting in M mode), aperture, shutter speed, metering or the size of the focus area.

The Nikon D750 D-Movie mode offers two options of FX-based or DX-based image areas in multi-area mode. A power aperture can be controlled while recording, and the new Nikon camera offers clean HDMI out, plus simultaneous capture of full-resolution footage in-camera and on an external recorder.

Nikon’s 3D noise reduction reduces random noise, distortion and flicker when filming at high sensitivities, and a Zebra mode shows you on the camera monitor where highlights are blown.

Improved audio functions, Nikon says, include a stereo microphone input (built in on the left and right sides of the camera) and an audio out for fine-tuning audio levels in isolation both before and during recording.

The Nikon D750 also allows you to select the sound range (wide/voice), and wind noise can be reduced when recording with the built-in microphone.

A dedicated Wi-Fi button lets you upload images to social networks, or for a professional workflow you can use Nikon’s UT-1 Data Transmitter together with the WT-5 Wireless Transmitter. The Nikon D750 is also compatible with Eye-Fi cards.

Other Nikon D750 key specs include a shutter life of approximately 150,000 cycles, dual SD card slots compatible with both SDXC and UHS-I cards, creative modes like HDR and in-camera time-lapse, 16 Scene modes, Selective Colour, Colour Sketch, Silhouette, High Key, Mini Effect, Low Key and Night Vision effects and approximately 1230 shots per charge with flash fired every other shot, 4420 shots per charge without flash and 55 minutes of video.
