Enjoy high-speed, pro-quality shooting
Capture stunningly detailed still images and smooth HD videos with Nikon's advanced D750. The camera's redesigned full-frame, 24-megapixel sensor captures glorious detail and color. The D750 improves on its predecessors by adding a tilting viewscreen and built-in Wi-Fi so you can upload your photos and video to social media easily. Demanding shutterbugs will love the D750's flexibility, extensive range of settings, and rock-solid build. Everyone will love the brilliant pictures it takes.
The D750's tilting viewscreen helps you frame gorgeous shots from any angle.
Precision 51-point autofocus system
You can count on shot after shot of crisply focused images with the D750 thanks to Nikon's sophisticated autofocus system. It features an amazing 51-point array of AF sensors that can quickly and accurately lock on to your subject, no matter where it appears in the frame. This lets you easily capture an off-center portrait on a whim, or snap high-speed action shots without slowing down to make manual adjustments. The camera also employs 15 cross-type sensors in the center of the frame for ultra-precise focusing.
3.2" tilting high-resolution LCD viewscreen
This camera's bright LCD screen provides a sharp, crystal-clear window for shooting high-def videos and reviewing your shots. The Tripod mode is ideal for shooting still subjects in a studio environment, allowing you to magnify the image up to 13 times on the LCD for ultra-precise focusing. Handheld mode works great for active shooting from tricky high or low angles that make it difficult to see through the viewfinder.
Buttons and dials are conveniently located and easily manipulated.
Durable, convenient design
The D750 gives you a wide range of shooting options, from an easy-to-use automatic mode to advanced hands-on manual adjustments. Convenient button placement makes it easy to adjust camera settings on the fly, so you can concentrate on shooting. Nikon wraps all this versatile technology in a strong magnesium alloy body with rubberized surfaces for a superior grip. Additional environmental sealing of the chassis provides enhanced protection against dust and moisture. The result is a camera that's rugged and solidly built, yet surprisingly lightweight and easy to hold.
Excellent zoom lens included
This kit includes the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR zoom lens. It's an advanced standard to telephoto zoom lens that delivers stunning image quality at any aperture or focal length. The lens features a smooth silent wave motor and built in vibration reduction. It's an extremely versatile lens, suitable for sharp, detailed photos of landscapes, portraits, weddings and distant subjects.

Nikon D750 Kit reviews
Great camera! - solidly built
Cons: no bluetooth

Bought 9 months ago. Incredible camera for landscape and astrophotography! Took some WILD pics of Death valley night sky. Dynamic range is incredible. The lens is about a 3.8/5. Has wide range of uses which suits me well. I'm happy, especially with choosing to order from Crutchfield! Received it before I left for vacation, in less than 48 hours. Came with free acessories like a brand new tripod! They even gave me a $300 gift card when price dropped a month later! Phenominal customer service . Highly recommend Crutchfield for those big ticket items as they sympathize with their customers.
Pros: Dynamic range Low light photography Incredible Detail Tons of features Customer Service
Cons: Heavy if you backpack lomg distances or climb mountains Takes awhile to learn all of the features Wireless Nikon remote only works a short distance so it's only useful in astrophotography

I did a lot of research before I decided to upgrade to the Nikon D750 from my Nikon 7100. After comparing so many offers out there for the D750, Crutchfield offered the best package (with the lens) and at the time I purchased my camera they also offered a fantastic $150 credit towards an accessory. I was able to get my battery grip to go with it. When you make a big purchase like this, you also have to consider the company you are buying from and how seriously they take their customer service. The camera is amazing and just what I had hoped it would be. But Crutchfield is also amazing. They get 5 stars across the board from me on EVERYTHING. Pricing, check out, shipping, customer care after your purchase. They are pros and you just can't go wrong.
Pros: great in low light wifi options love the lens included in the kit
Cons: heavy with lens on

Great camera that I have been using and getting unbelievable results from for 2 years now. This is a backup that I just bought because of the great deal with this kit lens and free battery pack. My 2 year old D750 took a 5 second bath in a Yosemite creek last month which led to a $350 repair job (great camera dry but definitely not water proof). I kept trying to get it to work with towel drying everything when I should have got everything in a bag of rice as quick as possible. I did that about 10 hours later which dried out lens but body already had damage done. I had 6 lens on that Yosemite day trip but without a working body so I was done taking the great pictures I had planned. That is why I bought this kit so now I have a new versatile lens and a second body in case of emergency. I will post two photos from the D750 I have taken. One of the creek where my tripod gave way and dunked my camera and another from Disneyland with Monsters Inc projection on the castle during the new Pixar firework show.

As background, this is our third Nikon DSLR and our fifth Nikon SLR, which also includes an F4. So my wife and I are very familiar with Nikons, and already own a couple excellent Nikon FX lens. And we have owned several other cameras and camera brands, except Canon. This camera is amazing. It takes better combined interior/exterior photos using Auto on the first try than our old D80 connected to an SB700 flash with carefully overlaying interior and exterior photos and making many attempts. Think VRBO "advertising" photos where you want to capture both the interior details and some amazing window views. The lowlight capability of the camera is excellent ... no problem with either focusing or the exposure in very low light. The clarity of the zoom lens seems excellent at all focal lengths and the speed of the lens is very good. So far, the only disappointment has been shooting an orange sunset, before and just after sunset, and not being able to get the same color saturation visible with the naked eye. We may still find a way to handle this difficult lighting situation as we have barely scratched the surface of the capabilities of this camera. If you buy this camera, check out all of the UTube videos available on it. Also, the manual can be electronically downloaded to your phone or iPad using a Nikon app. I've found the electronic manual easier to use than the paper one. And since I usually have my iPad with me, I can leave the paper manual behind.
Pros: Default (Auto programming) extremely easy to use Auto program results are amazing Low light capability Speed and clarity of zoom lens Downloadable manual
Cons: Requires some studying to use its advanced features

Great full frame DSLR. The camera is ergonomically designed as the controls fall right where you would want them. With the full frame sensor, you are able to capture beauttiful photos without flash using the kit lens. From reviews the kit lens is a great walking-around lens and my experience has shown that to be true. I've had cameras from Canon, Pentax, Olympus and always keep coming back to Nikon for the quality and ergonomics.
Pros: Low light photos and videos are outstanding.
Cons: Weight which is to be expected of a full frame DSLR with a quality zoom lens.

Cons: A bit heavy!

Great camera. Upgrading form my beloved D300s which I still use. Great to use my Nikon wide angle glass, AF D 20-35 2.8 & AF D 28 1.4 (yes, I actually have that rare lens) on the full frame sensor. No problems at all using it in any mode. Love the flip up LCD which I use a lot for low angle work. Good clear optical viewfinder. Looking forward to the vertical grip arriving. Camera came with the 24-120 VR, like the lens almost as mush as I love my DX sized 18-200VR. Have not tried much video yet. Have just got an Ikan shoulder rig for the camera & will soon get a Z Finder & try some video.
Pros: Full frame sensor, flip up LCD, DSLR video & Nikon quality.
Cons: None so far.

The fact that I feel uncomfortable with my purchase from Crutchfield , has nothing to do with camera itself, but with the fact that this camera was advertised for discount price until 02/27/2016, which is not true, right now it is still for the same price. And this fact, make me lose about fifty bucks in credit card fees, this is very important for Crutchfield credibility for the future purchases. Kind of bitter-sweet deal. So far camera itself seems to perform good, and I am not finished testing it.
Pros: Good camera
Cons: Instead of adding all these free items, that are not so useful, maybe a display protector, a UV filter for lens, and another strap, which is very uncomfortable (heavy camera)

This is a great camera! Produces really good images. AF is fast and works really good even in low light setting. Lots of features compare to my old D7000 and can easily be customize. Full frame is definitely the way to go. My first copy showed dots when shooting @ f11 and beyond but thanks to Crutchfield for replacing it right away.
Pros: Tons of features, Handling, Fast AF and produces great images.
Cons: I'm a hiker and this is my main camera I wish they made this a little lighter.

The D750 is an outstanding camera with loads of features and functionality. The controls and layout of the buttons and dials is logical and straightforward. The screen on the back is very sharp and very useful especially in live view mode. I highly recommend this camera for anyone ready to take the next step to a full frame format camera. You won't be disappointed. As a supplement to the users manual I would recommend Rob Sylvan's book Nikon D750 from Snapshots to Great Shots
Pros: Live View Mode, Layout of controls Easy to hold with large grip Extensive user manual
Cons: None that I have found.

First of all, if you are looking at a camera that costs this much with a kit lens then you are pretty serious about photography. Every review about the D750 says that it is an amazing camera, and I totally agree. If you take lots of pictures outdoor or brightly lit areas you can save about $2000 and go for a nice DX camera like the D7100. If you are like me and take lots of photos inside dimly lit gyms and performance halls then this is the camera for you. Amazing focus and high ISO performance allows me to get shots that my (sadly very old) Nikon D90 just couldn't make. I love that the D750 with its nice beefy 24-120 F4 lens weights not much more than my D90 with it's 18-105 lens. I compared the low light shots of my kids compared to the same shots taken with my D90 and the difference is night and day. The responsiveness of this camera is just amazing! I did have an issue with the VR performance on the lens but Crutchfield stepped up to the plate and quickly replaced it. That's why you buy a camera of this expense from a quality company like Crutchfield.
Pros: Amazing low light performance. Great 51 point autofocus Pivot screen (good for video) Feels great in hand, nice weight/feel
Cons: Many, many options, and the manual does not go over them in detail. Stock camera strap very uncomfortable (see how I am stretching for Cons?)

Overview: The Nikon D750 is a full-frame high resolution DSLR, with features inspired by the D810 or D4S, but in a slightly smaller package. It has a 24.3MP FX-format sensor, the EXPEED 4 processor, and built-in Wi-Fi. The camera has the Nikon F bayonet mount, and is compatible with Nikon AF NIKKOR lenses, including Type G and D lenses, as well as DX lenses. No lenses are included with this "body only" kit.
Image Sensor: The Nikon D750 is equipped with an FX-format, 35.9 x 24.0mm CMOS image sensor with 24.93 million total pixels (and 24.3 million effective pixels). The Nikon FX format enables photographers to take advantage of the familiar perspective characteristics of 35mm film photography. You can choose to shoot in the FX format (36 x 24 image area), or switch to 1.2x (30 x 20), or DX format (24 x 16).
Dust Reduction System: The camera has an integrated ultrasonic Self-cleaning Sensor Unit, which employs four different resonance frequencies to vibrate the optical low-pass filter and shake dust away from the sensor. Image sensor cleaning can be set to operate automatically when the camera is turned off or on, or can be operated from the camera's menu. In addition, there is an Image Dust Off option in the optional Capture NX-D software to remove dust particles from recorded images.
Body Construction: The D750 employs a compact, lightweight, monocoque body design. The front body and front cover are made carbon-fiber reinforced thermoplastics, while the rear and top covers are magnesium alloy. A monocoque design is like that of a auto body frame or an airplane fuselage, in which the outer skin carries all or a major part of the stresses.
EXPEED 4 Image Processor: Nikon's EXPEED 4 image processor is the most advanced yet. It is 30% faster than the EXPEED 3, with 25% faster frame rates, a wider ISO range, and is optimized for 1080/60p video. It allows the camera to be much more energy efficient, squeezing out 1230 shots per charge, compared to 900 with the D610 using the same battery.
Dual Media Slots: The D750 has dual media slots that can accommodate two SD Memory cards at once. Images are recorded onto SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards up to 256 GB. The camera supports UHS-1 cards. Class 6 or higher write speeds are recommended for movie recording. No memory card is supplied with the camera. In the menu, you can choose the role of the card in Slot 2 as follows:
- Overflow: The card in Slot 2 is used only when the card in Slot 1 is full.
- Backup: Each picture is recorded twice, once to the card in Slot 1 and again to the card in Slot 2.
- RAW Slot 1/JPEG Slot 2: Same as Backup, except that when shooting in NEF/RAW + JPEG, the NEF/RAW images are saved to the card in Slot 1 and the JPEG images are saved to the card in Slot 2.
Memory Buffer: The camera is equipped with a memory buffer for temporary storage, allowing shooting to continue while photographs are being saved to the memory card. Up to 100 photographs can be taken in succession.
LCD Monitor: The Nikon D750 features 3.2-inch, 1,228,800-dot (VGA), color TFT LCD monitor with a 170° wide viewing angle and 100% frame coverage. The monitor has adjustable brightness control using an ambient brightness sensor. The D750 features a Live View that lets you use the monitor in place of the camera's viewfinder to confirm your subject and composition while shooting.
Optical Viewfinder: In addition to the LCD monitor, the D750 has an eye-level pentaprism single-lens reflex viewfinder with approximately 100% frame coverage in FX format (97% in other formats). It has a diopter adjustment knob so you can set the viewfinder to your personal eyesight (with or without eyeglasses). The bright and sharp viewfinder makes focusing in low-light situations possible. The viewfinder offers approximately 0.7x magnification (50mm f/1.4 lens at infinity). Installed on the viewfinder is the DK-21 Rubber Eyecup. When not taking photos with your eye to the viewfinder, you should remove the rubber eyecup and insert the supplied DK-5 Eyepiece Cap to prevent light from entering the viewfinder. The viewfinder uses a Type-B BriteView Clear Matte Mark III screen with AF area brackets and on-demand grid lines for clear and accurate focusing of your subject.
Electronic Virtual Horizon: The innovative Virtual Horizon provides instant, accurate confirmation of the D750's position relative to horizontal level. When using Live View, you can choose to display the virtual horizon on the LCD, a feature ideal for landscape and architecture photography. You can also level the D750 while looking through the viewfinder using the convenient analog scale.
Still Image Size/Quality: The D750 records still images in JPEG and NEF* (RAW) formats. It can also record in both NEF (RAW) + JPEG formats simultaneously. JPEG images can set to fine (1:4 compression), normal (1:8), or basic (1:16) image quality. Depending upon the selected format (image area), you can choose from the following image sizes:
|Format (Image Area)||Large||Medium||Small|
|FX (36 x 24)||6016 x 4016||4512 x 3008||3008 x 2008|
|1.2x (30 x 20)||5008 x 3336||3752 x 2504||2504 x 1664|
|DX (24 x 16)||3936 x 2624||2944 x 1968||1968 x 1312|
* RAW data from the image sensor is saved directly to the memory card in Nikon Electronic Format (NEF). Once transferred to a computer, NEF (RAW) images can only be viewed using compatible software such as the supplied ViewNX 2 software or optional Capture NX-D.
Movies: The camera can record movies in MOV format with MPEG-4/H.264 advanced video coding and Linear PCM audio. Audio is recorded using the built-in stereo microphone, or an external stereo microphone. Image quality can be set to High or Normal. The available movie options include:
|Option||Maximum Bit Rate||Maximum Clip Length|
|1920 x 1080; 60p||High Quality: 42 Mbps |
Normal Quality: 24 Mbps
|High Quality: 10 min |

|1280 x 720; 60p|
|1280 x 720; 50p|
51-Point Autofocus System: The D750 is equipped with a powerful 51-point Autofocus system. The system selects the focus point that best applies to the subject, demonstrating an outstanding level of precision, even when shooting in constantly changing conditions. All 51 focus points, including the array of 15 cross-type sensors located in the center, maximize the potential of lenses with maximum apertures of f/8.
AF-Area Modes: The D750 offers a choice of four focus area modes that together cover a wide area of the frame. The AF-area mode determines how the focus area is selected and what happens if the subject moves out of the selected focus area while the camera is still focusing. You can choose one of the following AF-area modes:
- Single-Point AF: The camera will focus on the subject in the selected focus point only.
- Dynamic Area AF: The camera offers a choice of three different size areas to match the movement of the subject, using groups of 9, 21 or all 51 focus points.
- 3D-Tracking: In AF-C focus mode, the camera will track subjects that leave the selected focus point and select new focus points as required.
- Group Area AF: The camera focuses using a group of focus points that you select. This reduces the risk that the camera will focus on the background instead of the main subject.
- Auto Area AF: The camera automatically detects subject and selects focus point. If a face is detected, the camera will give priority to the portrait subject.
Focus Modes: You can choose from the following focus modes:
- Auto-servo AF: camera automatically selects single-servo autofocus is subject is stationary, or continuous-servo autofocus if subject is moving.
- Single-servo Autofocus (AF-S): focuses automatically when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. The focus remains locked while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. The picture will only be taken when the in-focus indicator is displayed. Recommended for stationary subjects.
- Continuous-servo Autofocus (AF-C): camera focuses continuously while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. Photographs can be taken whether or not the camera is in focus. Recommended for moving subjects.
Predictive Focus Tracking: In continuous-servo AF, the camera will initiate predictive focus tracking if the subject moves toward or away from the camera while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway or the AF-ON button is pressed. This allows the camera to track focus while attempting to predict where the subject will be when the shutter is released.
Focus Lock: Focus Lock can be used to change the composition after focusing, making it possible to focus on a subject that will not be in a focus area in the final composition.
Electronic Range Finder: The camera's Electronic Range Finder can be used to confirm whether or not your subject in the selected focus point is in focus (the focus point can be selected from any of the 51 focus points).
AF Assist Illuminator: The built-in AF assist illuminator enables the camera to focus even when the subject is poorly lit. The illuminator has a range of approximately 1'-8" to 9'-10".
Release Modes: The release mode determines how the camera takes photographs. You can choose from the following shooting modes:
- Single Frame: Camera takes one photograph each time the shutter-release button is pressed
- Continuous Low Speed: While shutter-release button is held down, the camera records 1-6 frames per second, as selected in the menu.
- Continuous High Speed: While the shutter-release button is held down, the camera records up to 6.5 frames per second (determined by the power source used and image area selected)
- Quiet Shutter-Release: During single frame shooting, noise is reduced by disabling the beeps and minimizing the sound produced when the mirror drops back into place.
- Quiet Continuous: While the shutter-release button is held down, the camera takes photos at up to 3 frames per second, but with reduced camera noise. Only one picture will be taken if the flash fires.
- Self-Timer: Use self-timer for self-portraits or to reduce blurring caused by camera shake; you can set the self-timer to 2, 5, 10 or 20 seconds
- Mirror Up: Choose this mode to minimize camera shake in telephoto or close-up photography or in other situations in which the slightest camera movement can result in blurred photographs
Interval Timer Photography: The D750 is equipped to take photographs automatically at preset intervals. Shooting will begin about 3 seconds after the interval is set or you can set a start time. You can select the number of intervals (up to 9999), and the number of shots taken per interval (up to 9). The images can be replayed at rates from 24 times to 36,000 times faster than normal. The images can be saved as a movie file (in 16:9 aspect ratio).
Exposure Modes: The Exposure Modes determine how the camera sets shutter speed and aperture when adjusting exposure. You can choose from the following Exposure Modes.
- Programmed Auto (P): camera sets shutter speed and aperture for optimal exposure according to a built-in program; recommended for snapshots and other situations in which there is little time to adjust camera settings
- Shutter-Priority Auto (S): user chooses shutter speed while camera sets aperture for best results; use to freeze or blur motion. The shutter speed can be set from 30 to 1/4000 seconds.
- Aperture-Priority Auto (A): user chooses aperture while camera sets shutter speed for best results; use to blur background for portraits or bring both foreground and background into focus for landscape shots
- Manual (M): user controls both shutter speed and aperture for complete control over exposure
- Auto Mode/Auto (Flash Off): There are two automatic "point-and-shoot" modes in which the majority of the settings are controlled by the camera in response to shooting conditions. One mode allows the flash to fire when appropriate, and the other does not allow the flash to fire.
- Scene: There are numerous Scene modes that automatically optimize the settings to suit the selected scene. Available scene modes include: Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close up, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Party/Indoor, Beach/Snow, Sunset, Dusk/Dawn, Pet portrait, Candlelight, Blossom, Autumn colors, and Food.
- User Modes: Frequently used settings can be assigned to one of two User positions on the mode dial: U1 and U2.
- Effects: Special effects can be used when taking photographs and movies. You can choose from the following effects: Night vision, Color sketch, Miniature effect, Selective color, Silhouette, High key, and Low key.
Long Time-Exposures: When Bulb shooting is selected, the shutter will remain open while the shutter-release button is held down. Bulb shooting is used for long time-exposure photographs of moving lights, the stars, night scenery, or fireworks (an optional tripod and optional remote cord are recommended to prevent blur). Time shooting is similar, with the shutter opening when the shutter-release button is pressed and released (on the camera or an optional remote cord), and remaining open for 30 minutes, or until the button is pressed a second time. Bulb and Time shooting can only be performed in the Manual exposure mode.
AE/AF Lock: If your subject is off-centered in the frame, it can become difficult to achieve proper exposure and focus. By engaging the AE/AF Lock feature, you can focus and meter on your subject, lock the exposure and focus by pressing the shutter release button halfway, then recompose your shot before taking the picture. You can choose from the following AE/AF Lock settings: AE/AF Lock, AE Lock only, AF Lock only, AE Lock Hold, AE Lock Reset, and AF On.
Exposure Compensation: You can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure from -5.0 to +5.0 EV in steps of 1/3 or 1/2 EV.
Metering: The D750 utilizes through-the-lens (TTL) metering using the camera's 91,000-pixel RGB sensor. You can choose one of the following metering methods:
- 3D Color Matrix III: If using a type G, E, or D lens, you can utilize 3D Color Matrix Metering III (or Color Matrix Metering III with other CPU lenses). The camera meters a wide area of the frame and sets exposure according to distribution of brightness, color, distance, and composition for natural results
- Center-weighted: The camera meters the entire frame but assigns greatest weight (75%) to the area in the center of the frame. The diameter of the circle can be set to 8, 12, 15, or 20mm, or weighting can be based on the average of the entire frame. (Non-CPU lenses use a 12mm circle or average of entire frame.)
- Spot: The camera meters inside a 4mm diameter circle (approximately 1.5% of frame). The circle is centered on the selected focus area, making it possible to meter off-center subjects.
- Highlight-weighted: The camera assigns the greatest weight to highlights to reduce the loss of details in the highlights. An example would be when photographing a spotlighted performer on a stage. Available with type G, E, and D lenses, it is equivalent to center-weighted when other lenses are used.
Multiple Exposure: This feature records a series of two or three exposures in a single photograph. Multiple exposures can be recorded at any image quality setting, and produce results with colors noticeably better than photographs combined in an imaging application because they make use of RAW data from the camera image sensor.
White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. You can choose one of the following white balance options: Auto (Normal, Keep Warm Lighting Colors), Incandescent, Fluorescent (Sodium-vapor lamps, Warm-white, White, Cool-white, Day White, Daylight, High temperature mercury-vapor lamps), Direct Sunlight, Flash, Cloudy, or Shade. You can also choose a color temperature from a list of values (2500K-10000K), or manually set the white balance using the subject, light source, or existing photograph in the memory card as reference. The White Balance Fine Tuning feature allows you to compensate for variations in the color of the light source or to introduce a deliberate color cast into an image by adjusting the amber, blue, green and magenta color settings.
Bracketing: Bracketing automatically varies exposure, flash level, Active D-Lighting (ADL), or white balance slightly with each shot, "bracketing" the current value. You can set the increment to 1/3, 2/3, 1, 2, or 3 EV, and the number of shots to 2, 3, 5, 7, or 9. In exposure, flash level, and ADL bracketing, multiple shots are required to complete the "bracket" as the camera will vary the settings with each shot. With white balance bracketing, the camera creates multiple copies of each photograph, each with a different white balance. Bracketing can be combined with continuous shooting or the self timer modes.
ISO Sensitivity: ISO Sensitivity is the digital equivalent of film speed. You can set the ISO Sensitivity to Auto or Manual. You can manually select settings of ISO 100 to ISO 12800 in steps of 1/3 EV. For special occasions, expanded settings of Lo-1 (equivalent to ISO 50), Hi-1 (16,000) and Hi-2 (51,200) are available.
Noise Reduction: Photos taken at high ISO sensitivities can be processed to reduce noise. The amount of noise reduction performed can be set to High, Normal, or Low.
Preset Picture Controls: The camera offers seven preset Nikon Picture Controls. You can choose a Picture Control according to the subject or type of scene:
- Standard: standard processing for balanced results; recommended for most situations
- Neutral: minimal processing for natural results; recommended for photographs that will later be extensively processed or retouched
- Vivid: pictures are enhanced for a vivid, photo-print effect; recommended for photos that emphasize primary colors
- Monochrome: takes monochrome photographs
- Portrait: process portrait for skin with natural texture and a rounded feel
- Landscape: produces vibrant landscapes and cityscapes
- Flat: details are preserved over a wide tone range, from highlights to shadows.
Picture Control Settings: The Preset Picture Controls listed above can be modified to suit a particular scene or your creative content. The following manual adjustments can be made:
- Quick Adjust: allows you to reduce or exaggerate the effect of the selected Picture Control Preset from -2 to +2
- Sharpening: controls the sharpness of outlines from 0 to 9; you can also select Auto which adjust the sharpness automatically according to the scene
- Clarity: adjust clarity manually or automatically; depending on the scene, shadows may appear around bright objects or halos may appear around dark objects at some settings.
- Contrast: adjust contrast automatically according to the type of scene or chose from values between -3 to +3 to increase or decrease the contrast of your subject
- Brightness: reduce or enhanced brightness level from -1 to +1; this does not affect exposure
- Saturation (for non-monochrome): automatically adjust saturation according to the type of scene or choose from values between -3 to +3 to lower or increase your subject's saturation
- Hue (for non-monochrome): adjust your subject's hue from -3 to +3 to change the level of Hue
- Filter Effects (for monochrome): simulate the effect of color filters on monochrome photographs from yellow, orange, red, green or off
- Toning (for monochrome): choose the tint used in monochrome photographs from B&W, Sepia, Cyanotype, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue Green, Blue, Purple Blue, or Red Purple.
Color Space: The color space determines the gamut of colors available for color reproduction. You can select either sRGB for photos that will be printed or used "as is" with no further modification, or Adobe RGB for images that will be extensively processed or retouched after leaving the camera. The supplied ViewNX 2 software and the optional Nikon Capture NX-D software automatically select the correct color space when opening photographs taken with the D750. Results cannot be guaranteed with third-party software.
Active D-Lighting: Active D-Lighting preserves details in highlights and shadows, creating photographs with natural contrast. Active D-Lighting offers the following application strength levels: Auto, Low, Normal, High, Extra High and Off.
Built-In Speedlight: The D750 has a pop-up flash that provides coverage for the angle of view of a 24mm to 300mm lenses (or 16mm lens in DX format). The following flash modes are supported:
- Front-Curtain Sync: This mode is recommended for most situations. In programmed auto and aperture-priority auto modes, the shutter speed will automatically be set to values between 1/250 and 1/60 seconds.
- Red-Eye Reduction: The red-eye reduction lamp lights for approximately one second before the flash fires to reduce the red-eye effect.
- Red-Eye Reduction With Slow Sync: Combines red-eye reduction with slow sync for use with portraits taken against a backdrop of night scenery. (Tripod recommended)
- Slow Sync: Flash is combined with shutter speeds as slow as 30 seconds to capture both subject and background at night or under dim light. (Tripod recommended)
- Rear-Curtain Sync: The flash fires just before the shutter closes, creating effect of stream of light following moving subjects. In programmed auto and aperture-priority auto, slow rear-curtain sync is used to capture both subject and background. (Tripod recommended)
- Slow Rear-Curtain Sync: Same as Rear-Curtain Sync above, except that the shutter speed slows automatically to capture background lighting at night or under low light. Use when you want to capture both subject and background. (Tripod recommended)
Flash Control: The camera supports two flash control modes:
- i-TTL Balanced Fill-flash for Digital SLR: Used with matrix and center-weighted metering, the flash emits a series of nearly invisible pre-flashes immediately before the main flash. Pre-flashes reflected from objects in all areas of the frame are picked up by the 91,000-pixel RGB sensor and are analyzed, along with range information, to adjust the flash output. Available with the built-in flash, and optional SB-910, SB-900, SB-700, or SB-400 Speedlights.
- Standard i-TTL Flash for Digital SLR: Flash output is adjusted to bring lighting in the frame to a standard level. This mode is automatically activated when spot metering is selected.
Flash Compensation: Flash compensation is used to alter flash output from -3 EV to +1EV in increments of 1/3 EV or 1/2 EV to change the brightness of the main subject relative to the background. Flash output can be increased to make the main subject appear brighter or reduced to prevent unwanted highlights or reflections.
FV Lock: This feature is used to lock the flash output, allowing photographs to be recomposed without changing the flash level and ensuring that the flash output is appropriate to the subject even when the subject is not positioned in the center of the frame. The Flash output is adjusted automatically for any changes in ISO sensitivity and aperture.
Built-in Wi-Fi: The Nikon D750 can connect via Wi-Fi wireless networks to a smart device running Nikon's dedicated Wireless Mobile Utility app. You can control the camera and take pictures remotely using your smart device. You can also download pictures from the camera to the smart device in order to share with others on the Internet.
Connecting to Wi-Fi: Once you have installed the Wireless Mobile Utility app on your smart device, you can connect to the camera via Push-button WPS (Android only), PIN-entry WPS (Android only), or View SSID (Android and iOS).
