Nikon has just announced the release of their newest DSLR.
The new D750 is a full-frame camera that offers a 24.3MP CMOS sensor and the Expeed 4 processor. This means that image sensor is a bit low relative to it's big brother, the Nikon D810, but the D750 makes up for this with a number of impressive (some first for the brand) features including:
And all of this is wrapped up nicely in a fully redesigned camera body that's smaller, lighter weight and more durable than other Nikon Full Frame models.
The D750 is available for pre-order (with an estimated ship date September 23, 2014) $2,296.95 body only or $3,596.95 with AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Lens.
Outstanding agility, an effective pixel count of 24.3-million pixels with the excellent image quality, the compact lightweight and slim body with a deep grip widens the field of usage.
TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the D750 Nikon FX-format digital SLR camera.
The D750 is the first in a new line of the compact, lightweight and slim Nikon FX-format bodies offering the superior agility as well as full-scale specifications needed for high-quality imaging and pursuing those of professional models.
The D750 offers superior image quality with an effective pixel count of 24.3-million pixels, a new Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor, and the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine. Adoption of a monocoque structure utilizing a carbon fiber composite material (new material*), magnesium alloy and a completely new layout for the internal structure have achieved a smaller, lighter, and slimmer camera that still offers a firm and steady grip.
In addition, the D750 offers superior high-sensitivity performance and AF that supports shooting in low-light conditions, enabling hand-held shooting of even scenes offering little in the way of lighting. It is equipped with advanced functions nearly equal to those of professional models, and is the first FX-format model to be equipped with a tilting LCD monitor and built-in Wi-Fi® function that add to user convenience.
The D750, which combines superior agility with excellent added value in a compact, slim and lightweight body, eliminates various limitations users face with shooting, enabling greater freedom of expression, and the ability to express their intent, with their photographic imaging. Forming a new line of Nikon FX-format models, the D750 responds to the desire of active photo hobbyists to be ever more creative and feeds their great desire to prove themselves.
*Sereebo®, which is manufactured by Teijin Limited. This new material, which utilizes carbon fibers, is very lightweight without sacrificing strength or durability. As this material is well suited to use on camera exteriors because its surface is incredibly smooth with no carbon fiber bosses, it is the perfect cover material for cameras with a monocoque body structure.
In addition to being the compact, lightweight and slim camera in the history of the Nikon FX format, the D750 offers a level of agility never before seen with a deep grip that enables a firm and steady hold that was achieved by making the camera significantly slimmer. The fusion of this agility, an effective pixel count of 24.3-million pixels, and the excellent image quality of the FX format enables greater freedom of expression and the ability to better express intent with photographic imaging, and also opens the door to new shooting possibilities.
The combination of an effective pixel count of 24.3-million pixels, the new Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor, and the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine achieves both excellent sharpness and superior image quality. By making the pitch of each individual pixel on the new image sensor larger, a broad dynamic range is preserved, and superior high-sensitivity performance that enables rich and smooth expression of tones with very little noise has been achieved. In addition, adoption of new algorithms with EXPEED 4 achieves faithful color reproduction and minimizes noise at high sensitivities. Specifically, the D750 even surpasses the D810 in image quality at high sensitivities, and the large pixel pitch delivers advantages in definition, depth, tonal gradation and clear color. As a result, finely balanced image quality is delivered. This superior high-sensitivity performance is also demonstrated with movie recording.
Because the D750 responds to the desire of active photo hobbyists to be ever more creative, it has been equipped with functions and performance nearly equal to those available with high-end models for professional and advanced amateur photographers.
Detailed analysis of the shooting scene using scene information calculated by the 91K-pixel (approximately 91,000 pixels) RGB sensor and the image sensor increases the accuracy of automatically controlled systems such as AF, AE, i-TTL flash control, and AWB. Faces are also detected when images are framed using the optical viewfinder.
Exposure is controlled with automatic detection of the brightest portion of the frame. This controls loss of detail in highlights (blown highlights), even when the primary subject is lit by a spotlight on a stage.
Adoption of a new AF sensor module, and 51 focus points covering a broad range of the frame, enables certain acquisition of the intended subject. This makes for smooth autofocusing, even in low-light conditions of -3 EV(ISO 100, 20°C).
The D750 is capable of capturing up to 100 shots*1 in a single burst of continuous shooting at 6.5 fps*2 in both FX format and DX format.*1 with shooting of JPEG-format images. Excluding shooting of FX-format images at an image quality setting of JPEG fine and an image size setting of Large (up to 87 shots possible). *2 Value with shooting in AF-C autofocus mode, [S] or [M] mode, shutter speed of 1/250 s or faster, all other settings at their default values.
The viewfinder built into the D750 offers better light transmissivity and colors, makes it easier to achieve optimal focus when fast lenses are used, and is brighter. An OLED has been adopted for the viewfinder display, making it clear and easy to read.
A sequencing mechanism for which the same four-motor system used by the D810 has been adopted enables "power aperture" with movie recording. The D750 also responds to the needs of professional filmmakers with the ability to output uncompressed movies to external HDMI recorders while simultaneously storing them on a memory card inserted in the camera. It also offers advanced functions, such as Wind Noise Reduction and Frequency Response settings, that ensure movie recording with high-quality sound.
The D750 is the first Nikon FX-format camera for which a monocoque structure, which serves as the exterior frame that protects the internal structure with great strength, has been adopted. A carbon fiber composite material (new material), has been adopted for the front body, where important mechanisms such as the imaging unit are incorporated, and the front cover, and a magnesium alloy has been adopted for the rear and top covers.
Use of these materials not only helps to make the camera lighter, but also ensure superior strength and rigidity. In addition, positioning of the integrated circuit board and imaging unit in nearly the same place and optimization of drive mechanism positioning have helped to make the camera significantly slimmer. This, in turn, has enabled a deeper grip for a more firm and steady hold. The great maneuverability afforded by a size suited to a variety of shooting conditions greatly expands shooting possibilities for users.
The D750 is the first Nikon FX-format camera for which a tilting LCD monitor has been adopted. The monitor can be tilted up as much as approximately 90° and down to approximately 75° for flexible adjustment over a broad range. As the LCD monitor does not extend away from the camera to a great extent, the compact size and great maneuverability of the D750 is maintained, even with more intuitive shooting from a variety of angles. Adoption of Nikon's original 3-axis hinge structure and a design that gradually pushes the monitor away from the camera when it is opened to face upwards prevent obstruction of the monitor by the camera's eyepiece, even when it is opened the full 90°. In addition, when tilted downward by 75°, the monitor swings back so that the monitor won't touch the tripod base. You can comfortably tilt the monitor even when the camera is on the tripod. The superior operation of this tilting monitor makes live view photography and movie recording fun and easy by allowing users to change the angle of the camera with regard to the scene or subject for great freedom in choosing composition.
The D750 is the first Nikon FX-format camera to offer a built-in Wi-Fi® function that enables wireless communication in both directions with smart devices such as smartphones and tablets. Still images exhibiting the superior quality possible only with a digital SLR can be uploaded to a smart device via the Internet that allows users to share their images with many people using social networking services and the like. In addition, the live view screen can be displayed on a smart device, enabling use of the smart device to capture not only self portraits and group photos, but also shooting suited to a variety of applications, including remote photography when the camera is mounted on a tripod.*To use the Wi-Fi® function, the Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility app (compatible with both iOS and Android™) must first be installed on the smart device. The Wireless Mobile Utility app can be downloaded (free of charge) from the smart device's app store. *The D750 complies with the laws and regulations of the United States, including its Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Special permission from the United States government is required to export or take the camera to countries under embargo by the United States (Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria). As countries under embargo by the United States may change, please inquire with the United States Department of Commerce for additional or updated information.
