Nikon D750 Key facts
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
