On Nikon D750: What you need to know article (103 comments in total)

Affordable FFs are a good idea and its natural they lack some stuff, but the problem is that Nikon is making affordable FFs that lack some stuff and YET ARE NOT affordable

DarkLoxodromy: On the sheet seems a little bit superior to D7100.
On which model should point a new buyer (photographically speaking not video).
I had always pointed on Nikon D7100 because 7D was outdated.
Now what do you suggest?

Mike, my writing was not accurate, what I meant to say is just the simple fact of being weather sealed makes it already superior, imagine all the rest on the specs, that is what I meant, cheers

A Reflex is a Reflex, not an iPhone, if people like touch screens and point and shoot there are many compacts for that or a Go Pro - Now into the new thing - CONGRATULATIONS CANON for reaching the many ones that have been waiting for this - Im Nikon but Nikon has been so blind to requests that I SERIOUSLY consider changing to this fine sensor and focus features, as long the price is not exagerated

ThomasSwitzerland: Evolution

Nikon shows a fantastic product to jump into FF. Nevertheless, with advanced post processing, the difference between FF and DX narrows. We speak on very small advances now and here. But it is great for progress in taking better pictures.

Better pictures as long you don't need to go above 1/4000, although spending a bunch of dollars on a 2014 camera

Chris2J: I want to upgrade from my D300 (keeping the D300 if possible, of course) to 24Mp FF, slightly better high ISO capability and built-in WiFi. As soon as I have the money, I see no reason not to get the D750.

It is amazing to see how many people on these blogs are just never satisfied with Nikon - as if they always get their requirements met by all other providers. And know much better than Nikon. I think this camera will fly off the shelves.

I normally give it a year before I buy. I have progressed from 3MP (Fuji S602) to 6Mp (D70) to 12MP (D300), so the D750 as a next step (to 24Mp) makes sense :-).

Its not a bad camera, but to expensive for its specs, just that, but if you like to spend that much Im sure you won't be badly served - I Love Nikon, Im Nikon but Im very very very disappointed with its prices

HiRez: This looks like the true upgrade for my D700 that I've been waiting the better part of a decade for. Unfortunately, in the meantime I've fallen for Fuji's high-quality but much more compact (and less expensive) X system. I've been considering selling off all my Nikon gear and going all-in on Fuji X. But this camera will make that decision harder, since I already have some good Nikon lenses. Large, 100% optical VF is hard to beat and still can't get the FF DOF with APS-C.

Going from 1/8000 shutter to a 1/4000 shutter and going from 1/250 Sync to 1/200 Sync is not an upgrade, neither on earth neither on another Galaxy

In reply to:

HiRez: People complaining about the lack of 1/8000th sec shutter, fair enough I guess, but I just scanned my D700 photos in Lightroom. Over 15K photos and not a single one of them was shot at 1/8000th. The 1/200 flash sync (vs. 1/250 for D700) is maybe a bigger problem, although I tend to not use flash unless I have to.

Please understand how Nikon is insulting you and notice the difference from what you said - The problem is not the 1/4000 limit, the problem is having that issue on this price tag, got it ??? Several Symptoms of a limited camera but still an expensive camera - And this are all specs that don't cost much to add and have been around for ages, not talking about revolutionary new expensive specs that should naturally miss on an affordable FF - Cheers

stromaroma: yawn. Total waste of effort. Where's the D300 replacement?

Richard, the D300 had 1/8000 shutter, I would not call a replacement to a regression - Not the end of the world having only 1/4000 but for 2K€ ??? An insult - My D200 costed 1.600€ and it performed 1/8000

JackM: Reading below, it warms my heart to learn that there are as many Nikon whiners on this site there are Canon whiners.

Spoiled brats.

Joseph - 1/8000 shutter and 1/250 sync speed has been invented a long time ago, no need to expect for 2025 and this price range surely asks for this OLD BASIC NON EXPENSIVE BETTER SPECS - Its a F... insult to all of us... Nikon and Canon are just fooling around with more demanding consumers sleeping away heading towards sunset boulevard

Nikon forgot nowadays cameras can do 1/8.000 and 1/250 sync speed - More rubbish of the same rubbish for this price range - HARA KIRY with no doubt

It´s not a crime for a camera to do 1/4000 and is a fine strategy to make affordable FFs

BUT NOT A THIS PRICE RANGE - DAMM IT FOR NIKON - DAMM IT

"I was surprised that when these inexpensive materials were put together into a camera, it demanded an exorbitant price."

6D is a great example - An affordable FF, with many symptoms of a poor camera (Max Shutter Flash Sync, etc) makes all sense - We loose some specs to have FF for cheap

But it does not make sense if its poor yet not affordable

"I m surprised that when these inexpensive materials were put together into a camera, it demanded an exorbitant price."

Texinus: Does that mean that all footage from nature reporters/scientists etc (N.Geographicdf,BBC) where the shooting is triggered by a sensor, TripWire, IR, whatever, is now in public domain?
A lion triggering a picture through a motion sensor is the author of the picture?

Well pointed out - And what about the Setup, even with the Monkey case, the owner of the camera was responsible for choosing A or S priority, ISO, type of focus, etc - So those are so important as composition, there is much of the owner on the Monkey Pic, or not ???
