Nikon claims that the D750 is its best-selling full-frame camera. Its success can be derived greatly from its Z6 mirrorless camera and some features from the D5.

However, proof that the company has not given up yet on its DSLRs, Nikon has announced the new D780 with some attractive features, including the 24.5MP BSI-CMOS sensor.
On-Sensor Phase Detection
Basically, it is just similar to the Z6 that features an on-sensor phase detection. This means that you can get improved autofocus in Live View in contrast to the previous DSLRs, not to mention its face and eye detection.
The Viewfinder enables the user to shoot and have a 51-point AF system supported with higher-resolution metering sensor and some algorithms from the D5. It also features a continuous AF at around 7fps burst shooting. But it can also hit 12fps in the Live View silent shutter mode when capturing 12-bit RAW files.
It is capable of capturing UHD 4K video at 30p full-pixel readout. It also supports 10-bit N-log and HLG HDR output, and offers focus peaking, zebra stripes, and more.
The body of the camera offers some notable improvements. Thus, it has a USB Type C port with in-camera charging, 3.2” tilting touchscreen, and a couple of SD card slots supporting UHS-II media.

Nikon’s D780 simply sets a new benchmark in the performance of its DSLR. This sets the D780 apart from the D750 in terms of capabilities by incorporating the latest technology and some of the famous features found the Z series.
This makes it powerful and versatile enough to capture from fast-action sports to night skies filled with beautiful details. Most of all, the D780 is a seriously capable camera because it offers a distinct advantage in terms of being comfortable in the hands.
At the same time, it is a very famous pro-grade tool for wildlife, weddings, and production environments. Here are some of the notable features of the Nikon D780 to date.
- High Resolution Image Quality – This offers a great balance between the file size and resolution. This is due to the fact that it is equipped with a 24.5MP backside illuminated or BSI FX-format CMOS sensor that enables it to deliver superb image quality.
- EXPEED 6 Processing Power – Nikon has ultimately created its most advanced EXPEED 6 image processor. The D780 is equipped with the same powerful processing engine as the Z6 and Z7. This noticeably allows the increase in its speed, aside from the greater energy efficiency. At the same time, it offers improved low-light performance, enhanced image clarity, and full-frame 4K UHD video with full pixel readout.
- Wide ISO Range – Photographers should be happy because the new model retains its ability in low-light, making it perfect for wedding receptions and photography during the night.
- Fast Speeds – When it comes to capturing images, it keeps pace with the fastest action with speeds of up to 7fps at full resolution. Now you can capture content with confidence that you can only get a single shot at.
