    The Nikon D750 is an incredible camera. From build specs to image quality, there are incredibly few cameras that can beat it especially at this price point. I've had it for approximately three days now, and this is my real world review. Before I start my review, I would to point out if one is going to shell out over $2,000 for a camera, one should be aware that this not a camera for beginner photographers. Yes, there is an auto mode and other scene modes. Yes, it is a professional camera built into a semi-pro body. But to bring out the full potential and appreciate the depth of this camera, one should have an in depth knowledge of photography. With that said, here begins my review. Build/Handling: The Nikon D750 is a sturdily built with a mixture of carbon fiber and magnesium alloy. Carbon fiber is an incredibly strong material and will not yield unless put underneath incredible pressure. Rest assured knowing the camera body will not crack if you accidentally bump a wall with it. The articulating screen is also well protected and for people worried about the cable breaking with the screen out, Nikon has taken special steps to ensure it will not unless one physically reaches in and tears it out. The handgrip is nice and deep, and should fit for the bill for the majority of users. Weight wise, it is very light, but the 24-120mm lens is not. Know that if one attaches this lens to the body or other heavier pro grade glass, the camera will tilt forward. Weather sealing is admirable on this camera, and a light mist or deep cold will not affect it, but try to keep out of potential downpours. There are reviews stating this camera could go out through a hurricane and survive. Maybe it will, but why take the risk? Also, the Nikon warranty will not cover rain damage. Image Quality: Absolutely stunning. Even when shooting up to 12,000 ISO images were clear and crisp in both JPEG and RAW format. To get the best out this camera, I would highly recommend shooting in RAW and using Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop for post processing. Colors are accurate and spot on. With good glass, one will never be disappointed. I was shooting downtown in some pretty poor lighting, but this camera kept up to the task especially after post processing the images. Even in bright sunlight, it was very difficult to take a photo and have it be overexposed. Is this the camera for you? I'd write about about buffer speeds, handling, video quality, etc, but there are scores of reviews for this camera online written by photographers who have had years more of photography experience than myself (and I have a decade). This camera is excellent for all fields of photography. It is a full frame camera, and yes one will get higher quality images than an APS-C camera if the photographer knows what he or she is doing (hence not a beginner's camera). If one is willing to pay the extra money, go for it. This camera is worth every penny.

    I recently purchased the Nikon D750 DSLR Camera with AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Lens in Black from Best Buy. I am amazed with the performance of the camera body as well as the lens that came with it. I had been borrowing my parents’ camera for a few years, a Nikon D3000. I did a lot of research after saving enough money to purchase my own camera, and decided the Nikon D750 would be a good fit for me. I do mostly portrait work, including seniors, children, and families. The Nikon D750 has been a dream to work with thus far. A few of the features I enjoy the most are the double memory card slots, battery life, and accessibility options. Memory Card Slots: Upgrading from a D3000 is a HUGE step. You now have capability to use 2 memory cards at the same time. This is perfect for days that you are shooting more than one family, a wedding, large events, whatever it may be. Worrying about switching memory cards is not a concern while using this camera, which resolves stress. Battery Life: The battery is also very impressive. When purchasing the bundle from Best Buy, a spare battery is included. This is a nice bonus, especially since both of the batteries are very long lasting. I have shot multiple sessions in one day with the use of only one battery; at the end of the day the battery still had life left. Accessibility Options: One of my favorite features of this camera body is the ability to switch settings with ease. Photographers are always focusing on what is in the frame and it is helpful to be able to adjust settings quickly. The settings are customizable and easy to adjust, even while shooting. The Nikon D750 is a great investment for photographers. The price may seem high if you are a first time photography equipment purchaser, but this really is a great deal. If you are looking for a camera to take your images to the next level, this is a great buy for you. Overall, the camera performs very well and I am more than pleased with my purchase!

    Questionable repair

    This is a follow-up to my review of Sept 6, 2016, describing a "burned in image" inside the viewfinder. I will start by saying that the gentleman at the Florence, Ky Best Buy store did satisfactorily resolve the problem, by replacing the camera and adjusting the charge for 3 year Geek a Squad protection. But I have great concern with the warranty service provided by Best Buy. I am not a novice with a camera, and have always taken extreme caution and excellent care of my cameras for more than forty years. I have always used Minolta and Sony, and continue to use them today. I purchased the Nikon 750 in October, 2015, and noticed the "burn-in" in the viewfinder in September, 2016. I returned the Nikon D750 to Best Buy, Fields Ertel location in Cincinnati, Ohio, in the original box with all of the original packaging, to be sent out for repair (I do not know if it was sent to an authorized Nikon repair facility or was examined by the Geek squad). After approximately 10 days, I was notified that the camera was approved for replacement, due to "impact damage", which is not covered by the manufacturers warranty, but WAS covered by the Geek Squad warranty, which would replace the camera. The problem???? The camera was never dropped, mishandled, and was in perfect condition when I turned it in for repair. I am upset that I now be would be responsible for purchasing another warranty for the replacement camera at a cost of 299.00!!! My concern is that I have no recourse, as the camera was not returned to Best Buy, and I have no validation of the stated impact damage. I feel that the "impact damage" statement is simply to void the manufacturers warranty. As I earlier stated, the Florence, Ky Best Buy store did adjust the warranty price (there has been a price drop of 200.00 on the camera since I originally purchased 11 months ago), but I have significant reservations towards any major future purchases with Best Buy due to this incident.. Lastly, each email update that I received from the Geek Squad lists the phone number 1-800-433-5778, available "24/7", for questions, etc concerning the repair. I attempted to call to obtain information, however, the hours for this service are 7am to 11pm, NOT 24/7 as stated.

    While this camera does have an “Auto” mode, that should be used only when handing your camera to Aunt Mimi to take a photo of you. When you buy this camera, you should be prepared to learn about exposure so that you can use it to its full potential. Let’s face it, no one buys a full frame camera to use it on “Auto” mode. This is a great camera for people looking to step up from a crop sensor DSLR but aren’t able to spend $3k for the D850. Sure, the processor is a few years old at this point, but unless you are a professional sports photographer, the 6.5 FPS should suit you just fine. The D750 weighs quite a bit more than Nikon’s entry level DSLRs, but it honestly helps to balance out the heavier full frame lenses you will want to fully take advantage of this camera’s capabilities. I use this camera mostly for taking candid family photos and don’t find it too heavy or unwieldy to carry around, although I do use it with a Peak Design Slide strap or Capture clip instead of the included neck strap. This is a camera well suited for an intermediate photographer who is comfortable shooting in aperture-priority, shutter-priority, or manual mode, but I think it can also be a great camera for a new professional photographer as well. I have really enjoyed taking photos with the D750 due to its accessibility and quality.

    Great Full-Frame DSLR for the advanved user

    The Nikon D750 has a great feel and it's performance is amazing. The high ISO performance on this camera is insanely good. I have no issues pushing this thing to ISO 12,800 when needed. The 51 autofocus points are dead on and I don't find myself needing to use the center focus point and then recompose to get sharp images. The surrounding focus points are dead on even in dark situations. I've used the Canon MK III's extensively and the auto focus performance on any Canon, in my experience, is nowhere near as fast and precise as the D750. I shoot events as well as my kids (who are 7 and 10) and the 6.5 fps burst mode is more than enough to capture a cool sequence of movement. It's a little bit of spraying and praying but can provide a cool 3 or 4 photo sequence print that would look great on a wall. The HD video on D750 is tack sharp, clean and beautiful for your everyday family moments and gatherings. If you're a weekend wedding warrior this camera will definitely provide great looking footage, however, I must admit that the ISO performance on the Canon 5D MKIII's is far superior to the Nikon's. So, depending on your primary use you may want to consider the Canon 5D MKIII. Nikon's ISO performance has always been superior to Canon's on the still image side. Canon, however, always out performed Nikon's ISO performance on the video front. So, really, consider what your primary use for the camera will be and go from there.

    … if you're not expecting D850 features and capabilities for D750 price. Any previous Nikon user will be at home with the controls in minutes after picking up the camera. Nice deep hand grip. Quiet, relatively speaking, shutter, buttery smooth tones, great dynamic range and decent battery life if you're not reviewing every image you take on the spot. For me it focuses on my desired subject through gaps in railings and tree branches surprisingly well. The only feature I wish it has is the little joystick at the back of my D500 cameras. Once you've used one you easily notice its absence. I added the battery grip and now it is about as good as it gets for a full frame DSLR at an attainable price. A lot to learn with this camera but you can always start in Program mode and build on those experiences. Avoid cheap glass, if possible, on a good camera such as this or you'll never see the quality you paid for.

    I love this camera and recommend it to anyone looking for a FX based body. The bundled LENS is a perfect fit for a PRIME all around lens. I did pickup the Nikon 50mm 1:8 AF-S lens to round things out. I am still getting to know the camera but there are so many resources out there to help you get the needed knowledge. I am struggling with the video in terms of keeping focus on a moving object but I am thinking that it's just a matter of learning the camera and it's focus features. Bestbuy did a great job at the time with a few bonus extras and I also get the $ back in points so they were the best choice for me. I suggest buying the camera from a good known source such as BB as I hear lots of nightmares buying unknowably international versions for less in the US at other online retailers. I for one want to be able to get support should I have any issues with the camera. I have heard some chatter about lens flair when shooting towards the sun (why would you do this anyway?) but I have not seen this happen while using the camera so far. I think folks that bring this up either do not own it or maybe have a Cannon and are jealous maybe? PROS - Size compared to other FX bodies, picture quality and features CONS - Price, but hey you get what you pay for :)

    Best "pro-sumer" full frame DSLr from Nikon

    Posted

    This is simply one of (if not) the best full-frame DSLRs from Nikon. Nice balance between cost/price and features. Offers many of the features of the higher-end D810, but at a price point between the D610 and D810. I would recommend this for intermediate-advanced photographers (although it is easy enough to figure out for a novice after reading the manual all the way through and finding where everything is). Kit lens (24-120mm) is OK. Not the best, but not the worst either. Get this kit, and a nice 50mm prime, and you're pretty much set. Maybe a longer-zoom lens like a 70-300mm to add to your camera bag, and you pretty much have all major focal lengths covered. Camera is a bit heavy (heavier than the D3000/5000-series. I have smaller hands, but this still feels comfortable (D800-series is just too heavy for me, and too much money). Excellent low-light performance. Only issue I run into every once in a while is that shutter tops out at 1/4000 second, but this maybe a handful of times per year out of several hundred shots per month. If you're considering the D610, get this instead. newer technology for a little more. Unless you're a pro, I'd not consider the D810 unless you can justify the extra $1000 price tag. The D750 hits a nice sweet spot for most people (pro and hobby) at this price point.

    I have never owned a full framed camera before. So this review is based on a first time full frame user. I can tell you that I love this camera. It is my favorite camera. I have owened 3 crop censored cameras before the D750 and they were all Nikons. The D750 blows all of them away. The image quality is very good. Don't get me wrong, the crop scensored cameras I owned had exceptional image quality as well. But the D750 has noticeably better image quality. And shooting in low light situations is not a problem with this camera. I can get great photos with high ISO's. Something that I was not capable of doing with my crop scensored cameras. The 24-120 kit lens is very good as well. Some people have reviewed it as an ok lens throughout the internet. But in my experience, this lens delivers great images. The images are sharp and clean. I am very happy with this lens. I photograph events and this lens gives me very good coverage on both short and long range. I highly recommend this camera and lens to everyone out there. And yes even the professionals.

    I love the full frame capability of this camera and the wifi! Choosing between the D810 and the D750 was a hard decision! I went with the D750 for two reasons. Wifi and the ability to shoot in auto. I shoot manual 100% of the time and highly recommend it but the rest of my family doesn't. I chose that option so others could borrow my camera or for the odd time when there simply isn't enough time to get the perfect settings before the photo opportunity passes. To be completely honest, it does take a bit of time to learn the entire camera. I'm a nerd, and read every manual cover to cover, and was still a bit confused on some of the menu choices. No worries though. There are plenty of videos out there on YouTube to help. I recommend Jared Polin with Froknowsphoto. I primarily shoot this camera while scuba diving using the Nauticam housing. I'm shooting in low light situations or even in the dark if wreck or night diving. It performs wonderfully in these conditions with dual underwater Sea and Sea YS-D2 strobes. I'm especially enjoying the exposure metering! It's not always spot on, but it gives you a very close place to start. If you're comparing this camera to another camera, be sure to watch YouTube videos on the subject so you can make an educated decision. I'm really happy I did!

    I was contemplating on purchasing the D500 instead of the D750. Full frame vs Crop sensor. After extensive research & studying reviews of others, I opted for the full frame D750. I am not disappointed at my selection. When you add quality glass to this camera, you will be blown out of your seat at your results. I mainly shoot sports & weddings. The technology within this camera is a lot better that within the D810. If you are not a professional, you will shoot like one. The D500 is also powerful crop sensor that will work great as a second camera but for my main system, I chose the D750. In the next 3 years I should be ready to purchase the D5 or D6.

    My first choice was the Sony a7rII. Main reason being I want a (relatively) light full frame that I can lug around anywhere and everywhere. My photography style are mainly landscape and traveling. Hence I like to have the full frame capability, as well as the relatively low weight to fit my photography needs. Alas, the low weight advantage of the a7rII becomes negligible when you put on a telephoto lens, and a telephoto lens is my main lens when I travel for my photo shoots. So, price becomes the next criteria when I decided which camera to buy, and the D750 beats the a7RII hands down. Yes, the a7Rii has more pixel power, but that can only go so far as ones creativity. For me, given the tool I have on hand, whats next is how best I can use that tool to deliver the best photo I could take. Irrespective what camera you have on hand, there is no limit to how far your creativity can take you to take that best photo.

    Definitely worth the difference over a D610. I have both, and IMNSHO Nikon is crazy to clutter their line-up by offering both. Just stick with the 750 ! But ALL camera brands seem intent on offering a confusing array of too many models with too little difference between each step in the line. The most noticeable thing about the 750, which happens to also be true of the 610, is the size of the best-quality direct output jpegs ... 3 or 4 times the size of similar Sony and Canon models at their best quality settings. And this difference shows up when editing. It's more like editing a tiff than a jpeg. One other special feature is that the pop-up flash acts as a master flash for Nikon speedlights. Not every maker's pop-up flash is enabled to handle the job of master flash, so this a plus. Other likeable things are that the camera is a bit smaller than the 800 series, tiltable LCD screen, and decent high ISO quality. It has no really annoying defciencies. I can't think of a "worst feature". If I were to complain about anythig, I'd say Nikon should delete the "Scenes" mode and substitute more custom user channels instead.

    Perfect upgrade from the D7000

    I am upgrading from the D7000, and this is the perfect choice. The obvious reason for buying this camera is the full frame sensor, but what I really like is that the body is only a littler larger than the D7000. I know some people think more, bigger hardware makes for a more professional appearance, but one of the main reasons it took me so long in life to get into DSLR cameras is the sheer bulk of the hardware. The D750 is the smallest of Nikon's full frame cameras, and I like that. Aside from that, the camera operates much like my D7000, which is nice because it was a very easy transition, I didn't have to spend weeks learning to use the camera. Of course, there are many additional features, some I will use, many I will not. The fact is, most modern higher-end DSLRs have feature-itis, and I suppose some people like that. At the end of the day, this camera does everything I want and so much more, but above all it takes fantastic photographs. I can see the superior low-light capabilities of the full frame sensor in my images, and that is ultimately why I made the leap from the D7000. This is a great camera.

    This is the second D750 that I have purchased to use for wedding photography. I got this camera to replace a D700 which has been an excellent camera that I have used for the last five years. However, after using my first D750 for the past year, I was convinced to upgrade my D700 to a D750. The auto focus system, high ISO picture quality, increased resolution, and lighter weight of the D750 were the main reasons for upgrading. The increased resolution allows me to crop photos more to achieve better composition, and the quality of the files allows much more manipulation in post processing of the raw files. Another important feature of the D750 is that it has two memory card slots which enables me to record two copies of my photos for important shoots such as weddings to prevent lost picture files. Make sure to use the best lenses possible to get the most out of this great camera.

    Take a super power from each of your favorite super heroes and combine it into one piece of equipment, and call it the Nikon D750!! Great performance all around. The 24-120mm lens is great as well. It is sharp, and focus is almost instant, paired with the fast continuous focus tracking of the d750 and you got a strong fast motion capturing camera. Bokeh looks great at f4 and even better with faster lenses.The zoom range of the lens is perfect for everyday shooting from portraits to outdoor landscapes, to indoor low light with the powerful full frame sensor. Video recording is great as well. Tilting screen is very useful for getting all different angles of shooting and the display is sharp too. Double memory card slots is very useful as well. All around an excellent camera that can tango with the best. Very solid feeling camera body, and a very nice deep grip. Has a nice weight to it with the lens on, not too heavy. Quality, sharp, versatility, power, reliability. Be a hero, get a hero, the Nikon D750.

    So far so good! The body is very light weight for being a pro, and the kit lens it came with is defiantly an all in one wedding camera lens. The fx and Dx options are at ease, and the built in HDR on bracket option I did find to be extremely helpful with my landscape and real estate. Removes a few steps for post processing. However, the firmware does not yet work with tethering for Lightroom. I recommend using the included software on the cd for uploading raw files. I found it to be very on point with camera info and the firmware. $2999 is, however, not a Black Friday deal. I never received my free memory card or camera bag because I never got the email notice that it had shipped to the store. Customer service from corporate and the store kept telling me to call and deal with the other party. So I gave up on that. 2 hours of my life wasted. So much for being an Elite Member.

    I've been using a DSLR for about 10 years now. This one is a full frame 24 MP Sensor awesome camera. Very responsive and intuitive especially if you have used a Nikon camera. Great in low light, beats out the D5 in my opinion (in low light). I use the MBD-17 extra battery grip, I'm a big guy with big hands and it just feels natural in my hand. Dual SD slots a major plus. Takes awesome 4K video as well. This is not a starter camera, but if you ready to get past the entry level cameras, this is just a masterpiece for the price. This camera makes about 20-30 MB RAW files and 8-20 MP JPEG files. Lots of room to crop from if shooting wildlife 6016x4016.

    As a professional photographer my standards are a bit high. That being said, this camera meets or exceeds all of my expectations so far with only a few tiny annoyances. #1 Nikon CLS control is limited to two flash groups, as opposed to the standard three unless your using another controller...this just seems either lazy or an intentional limitation. My 10 year old D700 can handle three, and has significantly better power management. The 750 seems to need me to recharge it a lot. Even though with my old D700 i could tote it around on small assignments all week and barely give a thought to recharging the batteries unless I put in a solid day. Lastly, controls are not the pro, but pro-sumer style. I can live with that, but sometimes you just cant get to what you need fast enough. Hopefully with a little more time to get used to it I'll be back to being able to adjust things without hunting for them forever... Just a few small gripes, but hopefully helpful to the veterans out there.

    I'm a professional photographer (wedding, portrait, sports, commercial products, advertisements, etc) of over 25 years. I have many Nikon bodies and wanted to give the D750 a try. Man, was I pleased!!!! The ability to customize the settings is fantastic. Image quality is great! Video is wonderful! File sizes are rather large (about 20mb for .jpg only) so stock up on good cards. This camera is not for the beginner. If your current camera is set to "auto", you will not be able to use the D750 to it's potential. Only negative thing about this camera is the MB-D16 vert. grip is hard to find. This is a must have item for any portrait shooter. Great camera for the money (if you make money with it).
