5Nikon D750, the Camera I'm Supposed to Hate
By Gregory Barton
I was looking for a full frame camera to back up my D4. I was close to pulling the trigger on a D810 when a guy behind the Nikon counter at B&H told me about the D750 which was coming out in a week.. After reading about it, it seemed like a nice feature set at a somewhat reasonable price.

Once I started reading reviews, I found that there are a lot of haters out there. Most of these people never even held the camera and they are bashing nikon for calling it a 750 as it does not live up to what a 700 successor should be.

I owned a D700 before upgrading to the D4 and I agree with the overcall consensus that the D700 is a great camera that I actually regret selling. I have fast moving kids who play sports and the D4 serves me well. However, I find that I yearn for something more compact for certain situations (honestly, most situations when Im not shooting sports) Although I love the 10 frames per second and pro level build, she is a beast of a camera to carry around.

I ordered from Amazon in order to take advantage of their liberal return policy in case it was as bad as some people say.

After owning it since Thursday (9/25), I have to say, this is an awesome camera. It fast, smooth, the focus is dead accurate and instantaneous. Its super light and slim for a full frame DSLR while sharing a lot of the specs from the D810. The grip is deep and a pleasure to hold. The controls are easy to manage and the shutter is quiet and smooth.

Images are very sharp with good glass and colors are accurate. Im really looking for reason to not like it but can't find one. I saved myself a grand by holding out a bit.

I guess its not a larger, heavy, pro-level body that some people think a 700 series camera should be. Sharing a layout with the D610 and D7100 causes some to dismiss the product, regardless of performance.

Some don't like change, even if its for the better. I get it,,, the D700 had a faster frame rate with a battery grip and went to 8000 shutter speed along with a pro-build. The d750 outshines the D700 in every other aspect. Nikon has modified their lineup and now has 5 full frame cameras, more than any other. Maybe if they called it a D650, people wouldn't be so mad.

I'm merely a enthusiastic amateur with a passion for the art. Since I earn my living outside of photography, my D4 is probably overkill. But hey, what can you do?

Take my review for what its worth but this is a great body that will not disappoint. Don't get caught up in all these review sites that pixel peep, look for flaws under severe artificial conditions and are critical to a point that is not relevant to real world shooting.

UPDATE:

After spending over a month with the camera, my thoughts haven't changed. In fact, I like it even more. The focus, low light, speed, everything about this camera is just amazing. I'm tempted to sell my D4 which sits on the shelf most of the time. Don't get me wrong,,, I love the D4,,,, I'm just not a pro and really shouldn't have purchased it for what I do. The 11 frames per second are nice for capturing a fast moment, but the times i really need it are few and far between.

As far as those still complaining that it's not the pro body of the old D700, I don't get it. This thing is weather sealed and built tough. Parts of the body are built with carbon fiber. It's funny that the complaints are not about quality of the pictures, focus or anything like that. There is nothing that about this camera that will prevent a skilled photographer from taking amazing photographs. I look some outdoor photos last night at iso 10,000 and the pics were super clean. I'm amazed at the low-light quality quality. Its even better than the D4.

Unless you need the mega-pixels of the D810 for super large prints, it's my opinion that this is the best full frame on the market, especially at this price point.

UPDATE: 3/2/15 Flare Issue:

After reading about the flare issue, I found out that my camera was affected by entering my serial number online at Nikon's website. Before reading about the problem, I never experienced it myself until I tested for it. Under the right conditions, it is a legitimate problem. I sent the camera to Nikon and received it back in under 10 days. I went back to the park near my house to re-test the issue and found that the problem was indeed fixed. Along with the repair, Nikon also upgraded the firmware. I found no difference in operation, speed or anything else.

I'm still just as happy with the camera as when I bought it. Although a little inconvenient, I'm glad Nikon owned the problem and gave a quick solution.

5Good Work, Nikon.
By DSS
The reason I decided to go with a D750 when I already owned the D610 was it's superior tracking ability of moving subjects in well-lit and low light conditions. I shoot a lot of wildlife, especially birds in flight, and they are not easy subjects to capture. I also enjoy shooting local live bands in very challenging lighting situations and while my D610 was handling these conditions pretty well, it did miss a few shots every now and then that I wish I had gotten. Especially when it comes to birds flying toward me at fast speeds, the D610 could not always keep up with them. The keeper rate was acceptable, but the D750 simply performs better in these situations. I get more keepers plus I get slightly faster FPS, which means I get slightly more frames to choose from.

In low light where even my eyes struggle to see any contrast, there is no contest between the two cameras. The D750 locks on in near darkness, whereas the D600/D610 would hunt under the same conditions. As long as there is contrast visible, the D610 will do just fine. I've put it through some difficult circumstances and it handled them better than I expected. The D750 however is just more sure of itself. It hunts less, it will lock quickly and your results will be impressive.

The image quality of the D750 is great of course, just as it is when using the D610. Auto white balance works surprisingly well. Skin tones look nice and so does everything else. Highlight-weighed metering is an interesting option and helps to preserve whites that might otherwise be blown out.

At first I felt the flip screen wouldn't do me much good as a still photography shooter, but now that I have it, I do use it to get some odd angles which I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. I'm not always willing to lay on the ground or stand on my tip-toes to get a shot and now I don't have to. The screen is sturdy and hasn't gotten in the way, so it seems like a pretty useful feature. Fold it in when not in use, bring it out when you need it.

Not only does it perform as promised, but I have also not experienced any negative issues that may have plagued some past Nikon models. I've shot around 5,000 frames with it so far and there are no signs of anything going awry. It focuses fast regardless of light availability, and high ISO photos look great, especially when processed through Lightroom. Basically, if you're looking for an action DSLR with lots of great features for a reasonable price, the D750 will fit you well.

-----------------
UPDATE: (Some people have reported seeing a shadow band at the top of the frame when shooting flares at specific angles. I have not seen this problem with my D750, but Nikon issued an advisory to repair it for free if you happen to see it. Most have not encountered this problem during normal shooting, only when they intentionally tried to induce this shadow band. If you like to shoot flares or if you shoot a lot of video, you may want to check your body for the problem when you buy it. Personally I don't think this is as big of a problem as oil spots on sensor or left focusing issue, but there are a few buyers out there who might be affected by it. Personally I have not seen this problem with three different D750 bodies I used, but some others might.)
-----------------

IF YOU'RE A BEGINNER TO DSLR PHOTOGRAPHY...

and you haven't really handled a DSLR before, the D750 may be a lot of camera and it may be intimidating with all the buttons, menus and dials, but it does also have an "Auto" mode with some scene modes available that will get you through the first phase of learning how to operate it. I recommend you buy a comprehensive Nikon D750 guide book and use that instead of the Nikon-provided manual. The manual that comes with the camera is far too confusing and it doesn't really teach you anything about DSLR photography. All it does is explain what each function does, which is sometimes not enough to make you understand why you need to do something a certain way. Auto and scene modes are nice, but if you're buying a camera of this caliber, you want to be able to benefit from what it offers, which is amazing images when the correct settings are used. Get out of Auto mode and explore M, A, P and S. You'll be happy you did.

IF YOU'RE A NIKON DX SHOOTER...

thinking about moving to full frame, you currently have three choices at the 24 megapixel low to mid-range price; D600, D610 and D750. The D600, D610 and D750 are all pretty good choices, but your decision will heavily depend on how you're going to use the camera and how big of a budget you have.

Here are the similarities between them:

- They all have 1/4000s max shutter speed.
- They all have very similar button controls (the D750 buttons on the left side are a little bit different by including the "i" for info button)
- All three have a magnificent 24 megapixel sensor with plenty of dynamic range and great high ISO performance (You'd be hard-pressed to see the difference).
- All three have two SD card slots and User 1/User 2 function.
- All three are similar in size and weight. The D600 and D610 are pretty much identical to each other in that regard.
- All three have a built-in flash.
- All three have 100% viewfinder coverage.
- All three have very similar buffer capacity.
- Same 3.2" screen size (but the D750 screen resolution is slightly better going from 921,000 Dots on the D600/D610 to 1,229,000 Dots on the D750).
- They use the same battery.
- They all meter with AF, AF-S and AI lenses.

The basic differences between the D600/D610 and the D750 are:

- Price
- Is about 10 grams lighter
- D750 51 point AF focusing down to -3EV vs. D600/D610 39 point AF focusing down to -1EV in low light.
- D750 is slightly lighter and smaller than the D600/D610, although it's barely noticeable.
- D750 grip is deeper and slightly longer for a better hold if you have bigger hands.
- The "OK" button can be reprogrammed to zoom into playback to 100%, which is better than having to press the zoom button multiple times to check for sharpness.
- Tilting screen on the D750 which is helpful if the camera is mounted on a tripod at lower or higher than eye-level, etc.
- Highlight-weighed metering (if you want to prevent blown highlights, this is a nice function, but you can also achieve this on the D600/D610 through matrix metering and setting it to -0.7EV to underexpose just slightly)
- Slightly better video options such as being able to change the aperture in live view.
- Built in Wi-Fi (You can buy a small external WiFi adapter for the D600/D610 for around $20 to $50).
- Better weather-sealing on the D750 touted to be as good as it is on the pro bodies (although the D600/D610 are also weather-sealed well).
- Faster FPS (6.5 vs. 6 with the D610, vs. 5.5 with the D600).
- Better bracketing options (2 to 5 frames in steps of 2 or 3 EV, 2 to 9 frames in steps of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 or 1 EV whereas the D600/D610 can only do 2 to 3 frames in steps of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 1 or 2 EV). This is beneficial to those who like to create HDR images.
- Full HD 1,920x1,080 at 60 fps whereas the D600/D610 does 60 fps, but at max resolution of HD 1,280x720.
- More Auto flash sync modes.
- 1.2 crop mode, whereas the D600/D610 have only FX or DX modes.
- Better white balance bracketing options (2 to 9 exposures in increments of 1, 2 or 3 EV whereas the D600/D610 do 2 or 3 exposures).
- The D750 does a better job with in-camera high ISO noise reduction if you like to shoot JPEGs, but it can sometimes be at the cost of detail depending on how high a setting you choose.
- Native ISO sensitivity on the D750 ranges from ISO 100 to 12,800 (options of ISO 50 in Lo-1, up to ISO 25,600 in Hi-1 and 51,200 in Hi-2 also available) vs. D600/D610 native ISO range going from 100 to 6,400 and expandable from ISO 50 to ISO 12,800 in Hi-1 and 25,600 in Hi-2.

To decide whether you should go with a D600, D610 or a D750, you have to ask yourself a few questions:

- Do you own any full frame lenses?
- How much can you spend?
- If you don't have any full frame lenses, can your budget accommodate a new, quality, full frame lens AND a full frame camera?
- What will you be shooting and how serious of a photographer are you? Is this just a hobby? Is this just for shooting family events, trips, etc.? Or do you plan to shoot professionally?
- Will you be shooting RAW and putting time into processing your files, or do you plan on shooting JPEG only?

If you don't have a big budget, you don't own any full frame lenses yet and photography is just a hobby, a D600/D610 will be more than adequate for the job. It will do at least 85% of what the D750 would do for you. It does a good job at tracking moving objects and it will have no issues with shooting portraits,landscapes or still life. Both of these cameras produce beautiful JPEGs, provided you set up your shooting/picture menu correctly.

Although the D600/D610 has 12 less AF points, the AF is very snappy and accurate in good and in decent light. Also the frame coverage is not much less than on the D750 with its 51 point AF. If you're coming from a D7000 for example, the AF on the D600/D610 is quicker and more accurate than it is on the D7000 (at least from my experience).

If you have a bigger budget, you already own full frame lenses and you're more serious about your photography (ESPECIALLY if you shoot sports, fast moving wildlife or in dimly lit venues), the D750 is the one to own. Although the D600 and D610 perform very well (especially in the right hands and with the right settings), the D750 is just a bit better in that regard. If you're shooting for clients and you need to make sure you don't miss any moments as far as focus goes, the D750 will provide you with that little extra assurance that the job will get done. The faster FPS, faster and more sensitive AF, better tracking abilities and great high ISO performance, the D750 is more suited toward action.

IF YOU ALREADY OWN A D600/D610...

and you don't know if you should move to the D750, here's my opinion; The image quality on the D600/D610 and D750 is just too close to call. Yes, the D750 is slightly better at high ISOs, but in order to make this a worth-while upgrade, you'd have to spend most of your time shooting at ISO 12,800 and above. Most situations simply do not call for that. Most people will shoot between ISO 100 and 6400. The difference in image quality simply is not worth the extra $1,000.00 between the three cameras. I've compared my D610 and D750 high ISO RAW files in Lightroom and I'm just as impressed with the D610 as I am with the D750. According to DxO Mark (if you trust their results), the D600/D610 sensor still scores just slightly above the D750.

If you're mostly shooting portraits, landscapes, still life and light action in decent light, the D600/D610 handles that just fine and the D750 will not produce miracles in that regard. The AF is better, but not by such a large margin in those conditions that it would warrant an extra $1,000.00. It's very low light focus and fast subject tracking where you'll see the biggest difference. If that's not a condition you encounter frequently, I don't think it's worth the extra cost.

The tilting screen is also not enough to upgrade to the D750 for still shooters, unless you're into video, in which case the additional video options AND the tilting screen are worth it.

SHOULD YOU BUY THE D750?

If you have a big budget, you really want full frame image quality and you don't mind spending an extra $1,000.00 for a D750, buy it over the D600/D610. While the D600/D610 are very capable bodies, the little extras and the more sensitive AF of the D750 is just a nice thing to have in a camera. Maybe you won't take advantage of those extra features, but if you need them, they're going to be there. It's like deciding between a 300HP car and a 350HP car. Both will get you from point A to point B, you can break the speed limit with both, both are fast and will leave many others in the dust should you feel a drag race is necessary, but one will get you there faster if you mash down on the pedal.

If you don't shoot super fast subjects and/or in very dim (or rather nearly non-existent) light often, you're on a tight budget and you need to use that budget to buy lenses as well, the D610 is more than capable. It's an amazing camera and will get you great results no worse than the D750 would. There are some amazing deals on it right now.

If you're on a VERY tight budget but you just have to have full frame, the D600 is even cheaper than the D610, it is nearly identical to the D610 in every way, but... know that you are taking a risk with the dust/oil on sensor issue. While this is something that doesn't affect every D600, there is a chance that you might get one with the problem. It's not a big issue if you're shooting below f/16, personally it didn't affect my everyday shooting, but landscape photographers who shoot at narrow apertures might find this a problem when shooting empty skies where dust might be more obvious. Nikon has agreed to clean the sensor of any D600 regardless of warranty (as far as I know), so you do have that reassurance if it should come up, but just know that this is a possibility. I loved mine when I had it, I was thrilled with it despite experiencing dust, but some people may not be as tolerant as I am or as willing to learn to clean their own sensors.

SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW WHEN BUYING THE D750

The D750 does NOT come with a screen protector or a flash hot shoe cover. You can purchase the flash hot shoe cover for less than $5.00. The charger does not come with a cord, it's the type that plugs directly into a wall. I imagine you could buy a cord separately if that's something you really wanted, but the wall charger works just fine.

CONCLUSION

The D750 is an awesome and enjoyable camera. It has all the great features any photographer would love to have in a single body. The AF performance and image quality are professional-grade, and I think any enthusiast, hobbyist or even professional would be happy with the results it is capable of producing in the right hands. I think Nikon really did a great job here. Usually I'm forced to say "great job Nikon, but it could have done without this or that flaw". This time I can honestly say.... good work. You got it right. Please keep it up.

5A professional body disguised in a prosumer shell. The next great Nikon in the making
By Herman A.
I've gone through 3x Nikon D700 and 3x Nikon D800 bodies over the past few years. All my bodies have been through a lot and I can pinpoint what's wrong with the D800 and how Nikon failed to capture the essence of the now legendary D700 with the way they danced around not releasing a real successor.

I set my expectations super low when I heard about the D750 release and I was throughly unimpressed when I read through the spec sheet - first noticing the consumer level command dial which I would honestly never touch after switching the M, the limitation of shutter speed capped at 1/4000, and for them to further cramp the focus points towards the center which is quite inferior to what it was if you ask me.

I received the camera today and put out my Df, D800, and this new D750 to compare.

First thing I noticed is the grip... boy it's lightyears of improvement comparing to the D800 which I struggle to hold on to every time I use it. The D750 grip is very similar to the D700, and if anything it's actually better. They now give you enough space to lay your thumb and made a little bulge to improve palm grip. They have also rearranged the battery compartment so that the grip itself is smaller, allowing your fingers more surface area to hold the camera. I know most people wouldn't care as much, but when you continue to use the camera over and over this is the type of little things that makes a huge difference.

Live view response time is dramatically improved comparing to the D800. The refresh rate isn't near the Df level which feels instantaneous, but it's fast enough; the real difference is how soon your camera allows your input again after taking the first image with live view. The D800 is so bad that it feels like a bug they never fixed, it takes up to a few seconds for your camera to come back to live; whereas the D750 is simply very responsive in this department.

The tilt screen actually feels very solid, and this makes the D750 a great camera for those who shoot both still and motion. I've been hoping this feature would make it to the professional bodies, and this might just be it.

Initial response with image quality is very positive, even after living with D800 for the past couple years which spoiled me with the amazing dynamic range. They somehow seem to have improved that even further with the D750 which I have to say is mind boggling. The slightly lower 24.3 megapixel vs 36 from the D800 is actually a welcoming "feature". I have to say 99% of my pictures don't ever call for a full 36 megapixel so a lower 24.3 which is sufficiently almost all the time will save me so much headache with storage space. (I have added a total of 10 hard drives over the past 2 years thanks to shooting D800 as my primary cameras)

The auto focus performance on the camera is far beyond the D800. Not sure how well it is in comparison to the D3S and D4 yet, but it's at least pretty close to the D700 besides not having the focus point coverage. In low light situation even with my ISO jacked un to 6400 it's focusing just fine; and also when I try to point the camera towards direct sunlight it's still not missing much at all and I can still rely on it. On a contrary when I put it in live view it's actually failing to focus sometimes, which the camera has no problem not using LV to focus. Strange, but so far so good with AF...

Instead of CF+SD combo this body actually has 2x SD slots. It's not a deal breaker but if you're concerned about SD reliability you may want to keep this in mind.

The button layout is similar to the consumer level camera, but still retains enough similarities to the bigger brothers so the pros wouldn't feel too unfamiliar.

*** video portion of the review to come after thorough testings this week ***

The new movie settings menu is a very welcome addition, which would allow those of us who shoot video much easier access to the functions. Nikon seems to also have given us more flexibility to customize the buttons for movie mode as well.

Wifi is definitely a great addition. This opens up new ways for us to use our cameras, allowing us to instantly extract photos out of the camera and manipulate or distribute them with our cell phones. I sincerely hope that this will continue to trickle down to the entire Nikon line of products.

They stuck with the EN-EL15 so we don't have to buy new batteries - awesome!

*** The bad: AF focus points are cramped... this is a huge set back and I was really hoping this wouldn't happen. At this point it seems like Nikon is set to designing their future cameras like that which is a step back.

*** The maybe: This isn't a professional line of camera, although it feels very good and feels just like the pro bodies but it's not. The omission on 1/8000 shutter speed and the consumer level shooting mode dial is a huge put off for a lot of people, but then the above par construction makes up for it. Now whether this camera is durable enough like its bigger brothers remain to be seen. But so far I have to say the D800 isn't very durable. I've got the AF knocked out several times on my bodies in the past without apparent impact already, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed hoping they did not cut corners on this one.

Conclusion: *** update*** I'll admit that I was skeptical, actually very skeptical. But after using the camera for one whole day on two weddings shooting both still and motion, I have to say I actually look forward to using this more than my D800 bodies. I can't say about the D810 but if I never needed the 36MP I don't see why I should go that route. The wifi feature works beautifully and it sets the camera apart from the other cameras. 60fps on 1080p HD is quite impressive, although I haven't figured out how I would use it. The high ISO performance is amazing... you will see some lab tests results soon online and I'm sure it won't disappoint. The grip is amazing, and I really cannot stress enough how well it is designed. Huge props to Nikon on this one finally listening to our complaints for once.

In short, this is not your D700 replacement, but it is probably even more than you had asked for. It's a slightly more compact D700 with a tilt screen, 24 MP, wifi, still solid construction. The downside I see is minor issues like the layout of the buttons where WB is #2/5 from top down, and ISO is in #4 and there is nothing to indicate them other than the writings, meaning there are no engravings or anything to help you distinguish what you're pressing when you're not actually looking, forcing you to pull the camera away from your face and see what you're pressing and that slows you down. Movie mode highlight zebra is great, but it would be even better if they put in focus peaking.

Will I buy it again? Yes! In fact at the time of this update I have sold both my D800 bodies and switched over to two D750 bodies. I think every era of cameras there's just one amazing camera that's really worth buying - back in the days it was the Canon 5D, 5D-mk2, D700. Those are the bodies that people always go back to compare to because they set the standard in their times. The Nikon fans have always been asking for a D700 successor. This, even thou isn't a direct descendent, it's definitely worthy to be ranked among one of those very few DSLRs that in time you will go back and compare to, and years from now you will be asking Nikon to make a D750 successor.

Hope this helps you make your camera purchasing process!
