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 Bonuses include a MultiCAM 3500 II autofocus system, which is a newer version of the one in the D810.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.
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.
