Nikon D750

New and im­proved, slim­mer and sleeker, more pow­er­ful and so­phis­ti­cated – this su­perb cam­era is hard to re­sist

Shaped like a grown-up ver­sion of the D5500, the D750 is very slim, but with a well-rounded fin­ger grip on the right and with­out the left side be­ing trun­cated. It’s only 10 grams lighter than the D610, but fea­tures a D5500es­que mono­coque de­sign. Even so, there’s a blend of mag­ne­sium al­loy and car­bon-fi­bre com­pos­ite ma­te­ri­als in the shell. Its con­trol lay­out is al­most iden­ti­cal to the D7200’s but, thanks to the svelte shape, the top-panel info LCD is no­tice­ably thin­ner.

With its re­designed sen­sor and later-gen­er­a­tion EX­PEED 4 im­age pro­ces­sor, the D750 is a sig­nif­i­cant ad­vance over the D610. Bonuses in­clude a Mul­ti­CAM 3500 II aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem, which is a newer ver­sion of the one in the D810. There’s also a top-spec 3D Colour Ma­trix III me­ter­ing sys­tem, as fea­tured in the D810. Han­dling ben­e­fits from a tilt­ing LCD screen, which lacks full vari-an­gle ar­tic­u­la­tion, but still en­ables easy Live View and video shoot­ing from high and low an­gles.

Per­for­mance

Through­out all of our tests, the D750 per­formed flaw­lessly. Its auto white bal­ance and me­ter­ing sys­tems proved al­most im­pos­si­ble to fool, and gave much greater con­sis­tency than in the D610. Aut­o­fo­cus per­for­mance is sim­i­larly im­pres­sive, even when ac­quir­ing tricky tar­gets un­der very low light­ing. And speak­ing of low light­ing, im­age qual­ity re­mains spec­tac­u­lar even when shoot­ing at very high ISO set­tings.
