Nikon D780 Review
All product photography by Dan Bracaglia
The Nikon D780 is a replacement for the D750, one of the most well-rounded DSLRs ever made. It's still built around a 24MP sensor and 51-point AF system but the more you dig in, the more you discover. It's a much more capable machine: a DSLR that's learned a lot from mirrorless.
Many aspects of the camera's behavior, including autofocus, video autofocus performance, and interval shooting have been significantly improved, bringing a lot of the Z6's capabilities to Nikon's venerable F-mount.
24.5MP BSI CMOS full-frame sensor with on-sensor phase detection 7 frames points per second shooting (12 fps in 12-bit electronic shutter mode). UHD 4K capture at up to 30p from the full width of the sensor 51-point AF module. Supported by 180,000 pixelss RGB metering sensor 273 point on-sensor PDAF. In live view (sensitive to -4 EV) 3.2", 2.36M-dot. Touchscreen Shutter range of 900 - 1/8000 sec. 10-bit video output over HDMI 2260 shots per charge with the viewfinder. Dual UHS-II SD card slots Snap bridge Bluetooth and WiFi system (with Raw and video transfer).
The Nikon D780 is available now with an MSRP of $2,299.95 (the same price as the D750 in 2014). Or as a kit with the AF-S 24-120mm F4G ED VR lens for $2,799.95.
