Leap the DSLR Divide: Nikon D750 Body or Kit with 24-120mm Lens

Share

Bringing welcomed features not seen before in a full-frame DSLR, the D750 is making Nikon shooters very happy and, with its compact build, large sensor, and professional performance capabilities, is taking in new customers previously wary of making a leap over the DSLR divide. Combining convenience features such as a tilting LCD monitor and built-in Wi-Fi with the resolving power and speed of Nikon’s top-end DSLRs, the D750 is a camera that blurs the line between professional and enthusiast while providing clear advantages for both sectors.

With a 24.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 4 image processor, this camera is capable of producing high-resolution imagery with smooth color gradations, low noise, and sensitivity to an expandable ISO of 51200, at a continuous shooting rate of up to 6.5 fps. The same Multi-CAM 3500FX II AF Sensor used in the D4S and D810 is installed in the D750 and the resulting autofocus speed and precision are notable. The 3D Color Matrix Metering III system, along with the 91,000-pixel RGB sensor, also benefits the focusing abilities as well as providing accurate exposure metering to suit a vast array of subjects and lighting conditions. 

Full HD 1080p video at 60 fps is supported, along with the ability to record uncompressed video to an optional external recorder. The tilting 3.2" 1,229k-dot LCD monitor is ideal for video and provides easy high- and low-angle composition. Built-in Wi-Fi enables instant, wireless image transfer to smartphones and remote camera control from your smart device. A built-in flash, hot-shoe mount, dual SD card slot, and large handgrip complement the unique monocoque body design of this impressive new camera.

The D750 is also available as a kit, bundled with the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR lens, which is a versatile zoom lens with wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. Extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements control aberrations for sharp imaging throughout the zoom range. Vibration Reduction image stabilization minimizes the blur caused by camera shake to better enable low-light shooting and its Silent Wave Motor provides fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance.

Finally, NIKON has optimized the combination price-performance in the creation of the D 750 DSLR camera.

A NIKON enthousiast since 1965!

What is the weight with or without the lens? Do all lenses fit? This is not a mirrorless camera is it?

Without lens it is 750 grams, it is not a mirrorless camera. 

*and it takes all F-mount lenses, DX lenses will work in cropped mode. 

The D750 body only weighs 1.65lbs/750 grams.  The lens itself weighs 1.47lbs/670 grams.  The camera is compatible with all Nikon F type lenses.  FX type lenses are designed for full-frame sensors.  It will accept DX model lenses but will crop its sensor to a DX format to accomodate them (this includes a significant loss of pixels). 

The camera is not mirrorless.  The Nikon "1" series of cameras are their mirrorless camera line, and are much much smaller and more compact than a camera like this is.

How many pixels?

The D750’s sensor has a resolution of 24.3 MP.

Still not sold on FX format. In a recent blog Zack Arias points out a minimal upgrade in image quality between cropped sensor and full sensor. A bit of 'wow' factor you don't see until you get up to medium format. Everything we know about electronics is that they are getting smaller and more efficient.
How about an upgrade to the D300s?
