Nikon D750 FX-format Digital SLR Camera Body | DSLR Camera Pro

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 Nikon D750 which was coming out in a week. After reading about it, it seemed like a nice feature set at a somewhat reasonable price.

Review to Nikon D750. 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 Nikon 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 Nikon D750 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 Nikon 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.
