Nikon D750 Key facts

NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

Im­age sen­sor and pro­cess­ing

The high-ISO per­for­mance of Nikon cam­eras has been im­press­ing even the most de­mand­ing pho­tog­ra­phers for years. The D750’s new im­age sen­sor, cou­pled with an EX­PEED 4 pro­ces­sor, de­liv­ers su­perla­tive re­sults even at high ISOs.

Aut­o­fo­cus

As with the aut­o­fo­cus mod­ule in the D7200, the new Mk II edi­tion of the Mul­ti­CAM 3500 gives 51-point aut­o­fo­cus with 15 cross-type points, as well as greater sen­si­tiv­ity right down to -3EV. In the D750, 11 of the cen­tral points can be used with a widest avail­able aper­ture of f/8.

Con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing

The D750 has the fastest max­i­mum burst rate of any cam­era in the group (with­out us­ing a cropped im­age mode), at 6.5 frames per sec­ond. The buf­fer depth is re­spectable as well, en­abling up to 15 to 33 shots in RAW qual­ity mode, depend­ing on bit-depth and com­pres­sion set­tings.

Me­ter­ing sen­sor

Equalling the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the D810, the D750 uses the latest-gen­er­a­tion 3D Colour Ma­trix III mod­ule that Nikon has avail­able, based on 91,000 pix­els. That’s a whole lot more than the 2016 pix­els of the D5500, D7200 and D610. Ma­trix me­ter­ing is par­tic­u­larly ac­cu­rate and re­li­able.

Con­struc­tion

It’s out­classed by the full mag­ne­sium al­loy build of the D810 but, with its mix of mag­ne­sium al­loy top and rear, and car­bon-fi­bre com­pos­ite front sec­tion, the D750 feels light­weight yet tough. It’s weather sealed and, uniquely for a Nikon FX cam­era, fea­tures a tilt­ing LCD screen.

Need to know

The D750 is the only full-frame Nikon SLR to fea­ture built-in Wi-Fi. A free com­pan­ion app is avail­able to down­load for An­droid and iOS de­vices, en­abling re­mote shoot­ing as well as up­load­ing of photos via tablets or smart­phones. How­ever, the D750 lacks the NFC fa­cil­i­ties of the newer D7200.
