 Nikon introduces the fast, versatile, and agile D750. Packed with professional imaging technology and streamlined for compactness, this camera gives photographers the freedom to realise their vision with outstanding flexibility.

Built to upsize your opportunities and downsize your load, the Nikon D750 delivers superb full-frame images regardless of shooting location or conditions. The newly designed FX-format sensor delivers exceptional image quality with cleaner results than ever before at high ISOs. Phenomenally sensitive AF performance, a burst rate of up to 6.5 fps, and Full HD movie recording at 1080/60p combined with the sturdy tilt-screen monitor to enable full freedom of expression. Built-in Wi-Fi makes it simple to share impressive FX-format photos in an instant. Nikon’s Picture Control 2.0 provides exceptional in-camera image processing and optimisation flexibility for still images and videos.

Simon Iddon, Group Product Manager (D-SLR Lenses and Accessories) – Imaging, at Nikon UK says: “The Nikon D750 is a new breed of camera that introduces full-frame photography to new audiences looking for high performance and amazing detail without compromising on convenience or cost.

He adds: “We’re really excited about the potential of the new model; it’s suitable for a wide range of shooting scenarios, from wildlife, to landscapes, to studio set ups and delivers outstanding image quality that can be shared instantly via the WiFi connectivity. Videographers will also be inspired to push the limits of their creativity with the D750, thanks to the impressive broadcast quality movie capability and the flexibility that comes with the tilt-screen for unique perspectives.”

 Freedom to dare

Inspiration knows no limits, and the D750 knows no restrictions. The all-new 24.3-megapixel sensor offers wide dynamic range with clean performance across all sensitivities, delivering images with stunning sharpness and rich tonality. The ISO range of 100–12800 is extendable to 50–51200 (equivalent), and Nikon’s flagship EXPEED 4 image-processing engine ensures image rendering is superb for both stills and video. The flexibility you need to capture elusive or fast-moving subjects is assured thanks to the camera’s newly developed professional Multi-CAM 3500II FX 51-point AF system that is sensitive down to a remarkable -3 EV. Combined with the camera’s shooting speeds of up to 6.5 fps in both FX and DX formats, these capabilities ensure you’re free to lock onto your target and capture uncompromised full-resolution images with incredible precision. In addition, Nikon’s new Group Area AF mode offers fast acquisition and improved background isolation when shooting subjects that are comparatively small and close to a high-contrast or distracting background.

 Free your vision

Equipped with a sturdy tilt-screen monitor and built-in Wi-Fi, the D750 offers photographers superior flexibility. The tilt-screen swings open and rotates up to 90º, or down to 75º, enabling you to shoot photos and movies from unique vantage points with ease. When shooting, this 8.0-cm (3.2-in.), 1229k-dot colour-tune monitor lets you push the colour balance and brightness in any direction to suit your personal workflow preference. The built-in Wi-Fi function means you can upload impressive full-frame photos via a compatible smartphone or tablet, or release the camera remotely via your smart device. Simply download the free Wireless Mobile Utility app to your smart device.1

 

Moviemaking freedom

Harness the speed, power, and agility of the D750 to capture impressive video footage whenever inspiration calls you. Nikon’s D-Movie offers broadcast-quality video in multiple frame formats, recording Full HD (1080p) movies at 50p/60p frame rates with markedly reduced noise, moiré, and false colour. A dedicated movie menu streamlines shooting by letting you store all movie settings in one place. The power aperture can be controlled while recording, and the camera offers clean HDMI out, plus simultaneous capture of full-resolution footage in-camera and on an external recorder. You can configure the ISO settings you want to work with from ISO 100 all the way up to ISO 51200 (equivalent), or fix the maximum Auto ISO range from ISO 200 upwards when shooting in M mode. Nikon’s 3D noise reduction reduces random noise, distortion, and flicker when filming at high sensitivities. Zebra mode shows you on the camera monitor exactly where highlights are blown. Superior audio control improves sound recording and offers greater overall flexibility: a stereo microphone input and an audio out let you fine-tune audio levels in isolation both before and during recording; you can select the sound range (wide/voice); and wind noise can be reduced when recording with the built-in microphone.

 Full-frame portability

Superior ergonomics, a lightweight weather-sealed monocoque structure, and an energy-saving design ensure that the D750 offers true full-frame freedom. The deep grip enables a secure hold on the camera no matter what size your hands are, and makes it easier to hold the camera comfortably for long periods of time without tiring. The Kevlar/carbon fiber–composite shutter unit is tested to 150,000 releases, and you can capture up to 1,230 still images and up to 55 minutes of movie footage2 on a single charge of the ultra-compact and lightweight Li-ion rechargeable EN-EL15 battery.

 

Creative flexibility

When inspiration strikes, the D750 is fully equipped to support your ideas. Whether shooting stills or video, Nikon’s newly introduced second-generation Picture Control System provides invaluable tools for before and after the shoot by offering total control over sharpening, contrast, brightness, hue, clarity, and saturation. For the ultimate freedom in post-production, the new Flat setting will retain all the details and preserve rich tonal information in both highlights and shadows, while the new Clarity setting lets you precisely adjust contrast and differentiate fine structures. Additional creative capabilities include an in-camera time-lapse function that lets you create time-lapse photography with smooth exposure transitions through simple menu operations.

 

Total Digital Imaging System

Shoot with the D750 and you have the full power of Nikon’s total imaging system to rely on. Draw out the full potential of the D750’s 24.3-MP sensor with the wide range of NIKKOR lenses. With their exceptionally high resolving power, NIKKOR lenses meet the demands of photographers in every field. Also fully compatible with Nikon’s industry-leading Creative Lighting System, the D750 works with a range of versatile Speedlights for creative flash photography on- or off-camera.
