Melville, N.Y. — Nikon introduced Thursday its new D750 full-frame DSLR camera.
Key distinguishing features include a 3.2-inch tilting vari-angle display and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. It has the same autofocus and metering system used in the D4S and D810 DSLRs, a new 24.3-megapixel FX-format CMOS image sensor, and new Expeed 4 image processor.
The D750 will carry a $2,299 suggested retail for the body only when it ships in late September, or $3,239 for a kit including a 24-120mm f/4 lens.
The company also introduced a new Nikon SB-500, which will ship at the same time for $249 offering a compact and powerful combination speedlight and LED video light.
The camera’s AF system incorporates a 51-point AF system with 15 cross-type sensors and 3D Color Matrix Metering III with a 91,000-pixel RGB sensor.
It will shoot up to 6.5 fps at full resolution, and will shoot stills in multiple formats, video with enhanced definition, smooth time-lapse sequences up to 9,999 shots in-camera.
The camera’s ISO range is listed as 100 to 12,800 (expandable up to ISO 51,200).
The D750 will simultaneously record uncompressed and compressed Full HD 1080 footage at 60/50/30/25/24p.
ISO, shutter speed and aperture can be set manually while recording, including the ability to use the power aperture control to fade in and out of scenes with smooth iris transitions.
The built-in Wi-Fi system allows sharing images and using a smartphone or tablet as a remote control for camera operation.
The camera has a 3.2-inch 1,229-dot vari-angle LCD display with Live View and includes RGBW alignment and color balance customization, to match images with the capabilities of an external monitor.
