One of Nikon’s new­est FX-for­mat cam­eras, the D750 strikes the per­fect bal­ance for most pho­tog­ra­phers. It doesn’t go all-out for a mas­sively high megapixel count, in­stead cou­pling its 24.3-megapixel sen­sor with a new-gen­er­a­tion EXPEED 4 pro­ces­sor. The up­side of the mod­est res­o­lu­tion on a full­frame sen­sor is that each pho­to­site (equat­ing to each pixel in an im­age) is phys­i­cally larger, and able to gather more light. This makes the D750 a sen­sa­tional low-light per­former, with the avail­abil­ity of ul­tra-high na­tive and ex­panded sen­si­tiv­ity set­tings, at ISO12800 and ISO51200 re­spec­tively.

The D750 is well suited to ac­tion pho­tog­ra­phy, with a fast 6.5 frames-per-sec­ond con­tin­u­ous drive rate and 51-point AF sys­tem. Eleven of the AF points work with rel­a­tively nar­row f/8 aper­tures, en­abling the use of f/4 tele­photo lenses with 2x tele­con­vert­ers to get ex­tra reach.

The con­trol lay­out and over­all body de­sign are re­mark­ably sim­i­lar to those of the DX-for­mat D7200, which is no bad thing. Typ­i­cal up­mar­ket at­trac­tions in­clude a sec­ondary info LCD on the top panel of the cam­era and a wealth of cus­tomis­able func­tions. An ex­tra bonus is that the rear LCD screen has a tilt fa­cil­ity, which en­ables very high-or low-level shoot­ing in Live View or movie mode, with­out the need to use a step lad­der or get your knees muddy. All in all, the Nikon D750 is a fab­u­lous cam­era that’s also fan­tas­tic value for money.
