The Nikon D780

The Nikon D780 is a full-frame prosumer DSLR that’s been designed with both photographers and videographers in mind. It’s an update to the D750 that incorporates features found in the Z6. Key features include:

24.5MP FX-Format BSI CMOS Sensor. The Nikon D780’s versatile full-frame CMOS sensor balances high-resolution images with great low-light performance and fast readout speeds. It offers a normal ISO range of 100-51,200, with the ability to extend to 50-204,800 when needed. The EXPEED 6 image processor enables continuous shooting at 7 fps with the viewfinder or 12 fps RAW or JPEG in live view.

51-Point Multi-CAM 3500 II Autofocus Sensor. When you’re shooting stills with the viewfinder, this autofocus sensor acquires fast, accurate focus on your subject thanks to its 51 phase-detection points. This system works in low light down to -3 EV, and its 15 cross type points keep focusing accurate even in subpar light. Eleven of the focus points are sensitive down to an f/8 aperture value, meaning that you can use telephoto lenses and teleconverters without worry. The intelligent Scene Recognition System helps you maintain focus on fast-moving subjects when you’re working at high continuous shooting speeds.

273-Point Hybrid Autofocus System. When you’re working in live view or capturing video, the D780’s Hybrid AF system offers 273 phase-detection points that cover 90% of the image area both vertically and horizontally for fast, accurate performance. This system is sensitive down to -4 EV, but the dedicated Low Light AF Mode brings that down to -6 EV for still shooting. You can also use Eye-Detection AF for improved subject tracking. The Hybrid Autofocus mode automatically switches between phase and contrast-detect systems, which makes it ideal for video.

UHD 4K Video Capture. The D780 isn’t just for ultra-sharp stills; it’s capable of in-camera 4K UHD recording at 24/25/30p, Full HD at up to 120p for slow-motion playback, and uncompressed output to an external recorder via HDMI mini out. The N-Log and Hybrid Log Gammas let you capture flat-looking footage with a high dynamic range, the Electronic VR feature gives you smooth handheld shooting, and you get 10-bit data output over HDMI. You can also record sequential 2MP stills at 120 fps for in-camera time lapses. Unlike previous Nikon DSLRs, the D780 includes focus peaking and zebra warnings. You can capture stereo audio in-camera or externally via 1/8-inch mic input, while a separate 1/8-inch headphone input enables precision audio monitoring.

Scene Recognition System. The intelligent Scene Recognition System uses an 180,000-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze every element of a scene, and then quickly apply the best white-balance setting to render that scene.

High-Quality Build. The D780’s build is similar to that of its predecessor, the D750. You’re getting a magnesium-alloy chassis and shell that feels great. The 3.2-inch 2.36m-dot tilting rear touchscreen LCD is a welcome addition for video shooters and photo shooters alike, and the large pentaprism optical viewfinder offers 100% frame coverage and 0.7x magnification.

Other Notable Features. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity allows wireless image capture, review and transfer from a smartphone with the Nikon Snapbridge app installed. Dual UHS-II-compatible SD/SDHC/SDXC slots give you recording flexibility, and the D780 uses the Nikon EN-EL15b rechargeable battery (one included) that’s rated for 2,260 shots per charge.
