Nikon D750 Review
Who Is This Nikon D750 Review For?
The Nikon D750 is a full-frame DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex).
With its flip-out LCD screen, the Nikon D750 is a fantastic camera. In my personal opinion, it's the best Nikon that a mad keen amateur photographer can buy.
It's light but robust and most importantly offers fantastic auto-focus performance and image quality in any light. Shots at ISO 12,800 look almost identical to shots taken at ISO 100. In fact, the quality is simply amazing.
This Nikon D750 review is for:
- Travel and sports photographers who need a rugged, full frame camera that will take excellent shots under all light conditions
- Artists looking to create high resolution works of art. The Nikon D750's 24 Megapixels will produce beautiful images that still look great when enlarged to more than two meters wide!
- Anyone who wants a full frame DSLR with superior speed and auto-focus.
The Nikon D750 is a large 24-megapixel DSLR. It is slightly smaller than the Nikon D610 though, as its 140.5 x 113 x 78 mm body is a good 4mm slimmer.
Construction sits somewhere between the mid-range Nikon DSLRs and the all-magnesium-alloy Nikon D810. The front part of the camera is plastic reinforced with carbon fibre, while the top plate and rear panel are magnesium alloy.
The weight and relatively chunky frame are important elements in making a camera feel comfortable with a decent lens, such as the 28-300 mm zoom lens showcased below. As well as having the heft to carrying such cargo, the Nikon D750 also has an excellent, deep handgrip. It feels well balanced, and ready to take on the more serious FX and DX series lenses.
Like the Nikon D610, the D750 will take two SD cards at once, and they can be set to record separately in RAW and JPG. This will make reviewing images much quicker and easier. Alternatively, you can pool their storage if your requirements lean more towards taking hundreds to thousands of shots at a time.

The D750 is perhaps Nikon's most significant full-frame DSLR to date.
Sitting between the more affordable D610 and the pro-grade, high-resolution D810, the D750 borrows elements from both cameras. But what's really impressive is that its build quality, ergonomics and feature set have much more in common with the more expensive of the two.
The D750 offers fast continuous shooting at 6.5fps, an improved version of the D810's 51-point AF system , a 91,000-pixel RGB metering sensor, a tiltable 3.2" RGBW LCD screen and the same OLED viewfinder display. The D750 also inherits the same video specification as the D810, which itself incorporated the refinements that Nikon has been adding with each successive DSLR release. This gives you powered aperture control, the new Flat picture control mode and the addition of zebra overexposure warnings. The D750 also offers Auto ISO control in manual exposure video shooting, retaining exposure compensation.
As such, the Nikon D750 represents excellent value. With the camera body and the lenses shown above, you'll have a high-end DSLR kit that will give you superb and impressive results for many years to come.
If you want to shoot portraits, high-speed action or long distance sports, you might consider adding a tripod to your kit. Here are three to choose from.
