Alex Conley, of AC Media Works, reviews Nikons newest addition, the D750
Nikon introduces a budget friendly Full Frame (FX) sensor sized DSLR with much fanfare. It is without a doubt that Canon has stolen a lot of lime-light from Nikon since the introduction of the 5DMKII. Since that day, the Canon marketing machine and brand loyal have dominated the conversation.
But, in the shadowy corners of the photography studio, Nikon has put together a nice line up of cameras that give the competition a legitimate run for the money. Matter of fact, it stomps all over the
Canon 6D, the closest rival in the Canon stable.
The Nikon 750 has superb ergonomics and feels nice in hand. It feels professional and sturdy, not bulky or cumbersome to operate. The flip out LCD is a nice touch for capturing video, although it's not a selling point for me right off the back. I tend to think things like this become a durability issue down the road. But, it functions perfectly fine and is a slight upgrade over the Canon 6Dâ€™s LCD screen.
In regard to image quality, the Nikon 750 sports a 24.3 MP full-frame sensor. The dynamic range capabilities are impressive at around 14 stops. Image noise is unnoticeable though most of the ISO settings and the 51 point auto focus system works well even in low light. Coupled with a fast lens and you have a low light shooting machine, great for photojournalist, street photographers and wedding shooters.
While the Nikon 750 is not considered a fast shooting camera, roughly 6fps, it is faster than the competition in the price range. This is important for those of us who love the full frame cameras, but need the speed to capture action / sports shots.
At the end of the day, the Nikon 750 might be the best DSLR buy of the year. Its competitive price tag and numerous features should catch the eye of any serious shooter looking to upgrade from the DX format.
