Nikon D750

New and im­proved com­pared to its pre­de­ces­sor, and with a scin­til­lat­ing fea­ture set, the D750 is a spec­tac­u­lar all-rounder

he D700 was Nikon’s first ‘compact’ full-frame D-SLR that omit­ted a built-in ver­ti­cal grip for por­trait ori­en­ta­tion shoot­ing. Just when we thought the mar­que had gone for­ever, re­placed by newer D6XX and D8XX se­ries cam­eras, up pops the D750.

At first glance, the D750 looks in­cred­i­bly sim­i­lar to the D610, but looks can be de­ceiv­ing. Apart from the gen­er­ous fin­ger grip, the D750 is much slim­mer and a lit­tle lighter. That’s mostly due to its mono­coque (one­piece) de­sign, as fea­tured in the D3300 and D5500 DX cam­eras. It’s im­me­di­ately ob­vi­ous when look­ing at a top-down view of the D750 and D610 next to each other. One (per­haps un­wanted) ef­fect of down­siz­ing, how­ever, is that the D750 has a nar­rower

Ttop-panel LCD screen. An even starker dif­fer­ence at the back is that the D750’s main LCD has a tilt fa­cil­ity for high-/low-level shoot­ing, a fea­ture which is unique in this test group.

Up­grades over the D610 in­clude a new im­age sen­sor de­signed to de­liver min­i­mal im­age noise, a newer EXPEED 4 pro­ces­sor, a more so­phis­ti­cated aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem and a more up­mar­ket me­ter­ing sys­tem. The new aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem is fast and highly ac­cu­rate, while me­ter­ing is clever and con­sis­tent, even un­der tricky light­ing con­di­tions, and when shoot­ing high-con­trast scenes. Auto white bal­ance is no­tice­ably more re­li­able than in the D610, giv­ing prac­ti­cally iden­ti­cal
