Finally, Nikon D750 is a top DSLR with a screen that's useful for video.
The Nikon D750 is a new full-frame DSLR camera. Packed with professional imaging technology and streamlined for compactness, the D750 features a newly designed 24.3 megapixel FX-format sensor, phenomenally sensitive AF performance, a burst rate of up to 6.5 fps, ISO range of 100–12800 that is extendable to 50–51200, and Full HD movie recording at 1080/60p combined with a tilt-screen monitor. Built-in Wi-Fi makes it simple to share impressive FX-format photos in an instant
The Nikon D750 boasts a FX-format (full-frame) CMOS sensor along with EXPEED 4 image-processing engine. The new Expeed 4 processor helps improve some of the terrible moire and artifacts present back on the D800. What’s more, the camera can record 1920 x 1080 video at 60p, in addition to the 24/25/30 frame rates that are almost universally available.
The Nikon D750 is the first Nikon FX-format (full-frame) camera to adopt a monocoque structure, eliminating the rear body. The camera employs carbon-fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFT) for the front body and cover, and magnesium alloy for the rear and top panels to reduce weight and increase durability.
Its newly designed 24.3MP FX-format CMOS image sensor is paired with EXPEED 4 image processing for fast frame rates, a low noise, wide ISO range of 100 to 12,800 (expandable up to ISO 51,200), Full HD video with enhanced definition and reduced noise at high ISO sensitivities, minimal moiré, jaggies and false colors and a Nikon first—autofocus performance down to -3EV. Paired with the versatile array of full-frame or DX-format NIKKOR lenses, the D750 is capable of telling any story you can imagine. The Nikon D750 offers the capability to record Full HD movies in 1920×1080/60p (59.94 fps) format.
With professional video capabilities inspired by the D810 and an array of inputs and outputs, the D750 is as well-suited for recording daily life and events as it is for filmmaking and videography. Simultaneously record uncompressed and compressed Full HD 1080 footage at 60/50/30/25/24p. Manually control ISO, shutter speed and aperture while recording—even use Power Aperture control for smooth iris transitions and Auto ISO for smooth exposure transitions. Use Highlight Display with zebra stripes to confirm exposure, apply Flat Picture Control for easier color grading in post and record at low and high angles with the 3.2-inch tilting Vari-angle LCD.
The 51-point autofocus (AF) system employs a new AF sensor module that enhances low-light performance (down to -3EV), making it possible to shoot using AF in dark environments. A Group-area AF mode also works to detect moving subjects. It is possible to set the color balance on the clear, bright 3.2-inch monitor with a wide viewing-angle (170° horizontally or vertically), to suit the user’s preference. An Advanced Scene Recognition System that utilizes the compact 91K-pixel RGB sensor helps with focusing and metering accuracy of the subject.
A new internal layout is optimized to allow sufficient space for maneuverability with comfortable grip. A tri-axis hinge on the monitor tilting mechanism also enables the screen to tilt up to 90 degrees and down to 75 degrees.
The Nikon D750 comes with built-in Wi-Fi. Sharing and transferring your favorite D750 photos is fast, easy and fun. Wirelessly connect to the D750 with a compatible smartphone or tablet, browse the camera's memory card, download your favorite shots and then email them, text them or upload them to your favorite website. You can also use your smart device as a remote monitor and control for the D750—see what the camera sees and fire the shutter. For faster wireless transfers, transmit images over FTP using the WT-5A Wireless Transmitter + UT-1 Communication Unit. (Advanced shooters can use a web browser on a smartphone or tablet in HTTP mode to operate camera controls and begin Live View shooting.) The Nikon D750 also supports wireless image transfer with optional Eye-Fi card.
A first for a Nikon full-frame D-SLR, the Nikon D750 features a 3.2-inch 1,229 dot tilting Vari-angle LCD display. It has RGBW alignment and color balance customization, so it can be matched to an external monitor. Use it to shoot from high and low angles, to spot-select white balance during Live View shooting, to access the intuitively redesigned Info. display or to change settings quickly from the separate Photo Shooting and Movie Shooting menus. Match your view and your vision with the 100% coverage optical viewfinder, which has a bright, clear organic EL display system for making adjustments without taking your eye off the action.
