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. Two live view modes let you preview the effects of your camera settings in real time. 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.

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.

Great full Frame DSLR

George G. from Canonsburg, PA on 6/14/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased our third D750 during the recent Nilkon sale that included the MB-D16 power grip at no additional charge. We do wedding photography and videography. We use the D750s for providing B-roll video in addition to photographs. The D750 is exceptional at producing low noise images in low light, which is what we experience in churches and at receptions. The 24-120 lens that is paired with the D750 is an excellent general lens. Unlike the canons where the LCD screen flips out to the side, the LCD screen is in the perfect place for video and is easily adjusted.

Pros: Quality build Reliability Quality images and videos, especially in low light

Cons:

By far THE best camera for this price point

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have 2 d750's to help with my sports photography. I use one with the Nikon 300mm2.8 vr11. The second camera is using the Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 vr11. The images are stunning . These cameras are great in low lighted Friday night lights football games. The varsity football team and their families are amazed with the sports illustrated like shots!

Pros: The price is fair for full frame photography. 6 frames a second is good to capture the action.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Beautiful camera, light and easy to grip. I have two Nikon lens, a 16 -85mm VR FX zoom and a 28 - 300mm VR ED zoom. Both lens give very noise free photos. The instruction manual is a daunting 17 hour read (I bought a video that covers it all very well). I can't speak about the video this camera take because I use it for still photos only. I miss the FX zoom effect with my 28 - 300 lens but I can crop way in on the photo and still get an excellent outcome. This is my 5th Nikon body and the best by far. Love this camera

This is my 4th Nikon body and the 1st in Full Frame; and it is the best. Images are awesome in definition and color, autofocus is extremely fast and accurate, almost no noise in high ISO settings and the camera has many very useful functions and mostly all can be very rapidly reviewed in the monitor screen. Excellent camera, highly recommend for anyone updating to a full frame body. As for Crutchfield; always excellent service, free and fast 3 days shipping, and affordable prices; an excellent merchant!

Pros: many!!!

Cons: none

Nice FX DSLR

Renzhe from Santa Clara, CA on 10/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Shipping is fast, I received it in 3 days as expected. I had been doing my research for my next camera for 3 months. My previous DSLR is Nikon D3200, with 35 1.8G and 85 1.8G. Now I have used my brand new D750 for 3 weeks, and I am satisfied with this new camera's performance along with my 85 1.8G. Great experience with FX DSLR overall!

Better than I expected

Javier R. from Hudson Valley, NY on 7/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was trying to make up my mind between the D750 & the D810 but after reading hundreds of reviews I saw that basically the only big difference was the image size in pixels. I was a little leery also as the D750 wasn't made in Japan as the 810 but after having used it a few times now I have no regrets. One thing I noticed right away is how much faster the auto focus is than with my old D700. I am really glad I purchased this camera plus saved the extra cash I would have spent on the D810. If you like to take beautiful quality pictures & experiment using all the different features available, I highly recommend buying this camera.

Pros: Extremely fast. Not as heavy as my old D700 but still hefty enough to feel good in your hand.

Cons: None, there is just a lot to learn if you want to use all all the available features this camera has.

Nikon D750 straight talk

Susan G from Pacific Grove, CA on 2/13/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Upgraded from a Nikon D3100 to the D750 for the low light performance in order to capture indoor basketball. Used all M and A settings for a year on the D3100 prior to purchase to learn camera features. Purchased "good glass" and was convinced that the D750 would help me get the shots I wanted. Incredible camera !!! I shoot raw files and edit with a Mac. The color is spot on. I watched a Fro Knows Photo set- up video a couple of times to tweak the settings. The features are all the same with Nikon so it's been a smooth transition. The size and weight are not much different from my D3100. Didn't know if I'd need the dual SD cards but realized after a basketball game last night that it's added insurance for my shots.The battery life is good. This was a big upgrade from DX so I wanted the full 60 days to decide. The three day shipping was included. The minute I saw my first photos from a poorly lit high school gym, I knew this camera was an answer to my prayer. I am capturing these images for generations to come. We used to watch slides from a Kodak film projector when I was a kid. Now we stream videos I made from my YouTube channel via the Smart TV. Who knew? Very happy with my purchase. Purchase good glass. Ken Rockwell says you don't need a mid range lens with this camera. Looking at the first few hundred shots I took, I agree. Bought a 70-200mm 2.8 and a 50mm 1.4, both Nikon, insuring they will work on future Nikon cameras.

Pros: Color and detail is excellent.Focus options are easy to use.I can see the sweat on their brows.The tilt screen could be very useful for video,especially with high action events.If you shoot with a Nikon now, you will be very comfortable with the menus. Several people shared short "how to" videos on specific button function assignment if needed on YouTube, plus the Crutchfield team offers support.

Cons: I use my Iphone6s to shoot video at the basketball games because it is 4K. The video on the D750 is only 1080. Not sure Nikon needed the file size. I am not printing huge posters.

Great Camera

Went from D7100 to the Nikon D750. The 750 blows the 7100 away. I will never look for a DX camera again!

Pros: Wonderfull picture quality

Cons: None

Great camera

GH from South Carolina on 1/18/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I upgraded from a D7100 to the D750. Right out of the box, picture quality was better, colors were brighter, focus was faster and fewer out of focus shots using the same lenses on either body.

Pros: Image quality, fast focus

Cons: AF points only cover the center of the view finder, which takes a little getting used too

feature-packed

Diane from Indiana on 11/26/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the most professional camera I've ever owned, and the first DSLR. I am amazed at the flexibility to customize your photos: there's a wide spectrum of automatic features that automate specific aspects of the shooting experience, in addition to going full-on manual. Amazing camera.

Pros: Tons of features

Cons: none so far

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered the D750 as a backup to my D800, and I am loving it so far. It definitely is lighter and more compact than the D800 and it is very comfortable in my hands. So far I am impressed by the performance. I haven't microcalibrated my lenses yet, but I've been satisfied with the sharpness of my images. I also like that the RAW files aren't quite as ginormous as the D800, as I really don't need that with what I shoot.

This was my upgrade from a D5200 (entry level DX SLR) to a full-frame and I'm super glad I made the leap. I'm still learning all of the features but so far I love the quality and clarity of my photographs.

Pros: Full frame sensor and terrific focusing capability even in low light. Makes photos from my DX lens (55-300 mm 1:4.5-5.6 ... which is NOT a great lens) look great.

Cons: I want more FX and higher-end lens!

D750

John from Pennsylvania on 3/3/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great DSLR. It is full frame but in a small compact body. The picture quality is excellent and the focus is one of Nikons best. I also own the D810 and the focus speed and accuracy is slightly better with the D750. If you are an advanced amateur or working professional, I guarantee you will be pleased with this camera.

Pros: Full frame sensor. Small, compact and light body. Very quick and accurate auto focus. Auto white balance is spot on.

Cons: The only negative issue with this camera is that some early models had a slight defect when shooting in to a bright light source. Nikon did very well in addressing the issue by fixing any body that was impacted and any new purchase made today does not have this defect.

excellent d700 replacement

JonTheRoad from New Jersey on 12/19/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

incredible replacement to my d700 body. after using my d700 body for the last 5yrs as my primary workhorse (i owned 2 simultaneously), i decided to dip my toes in the water and replace one of them with a d750. the focus is intelligent, fast, and on-point. i purchased an open-box body and saved 15%, and that made things even more worth it for me. my biggest complaint is, upon opening the box, minor adjustments had to be made within camera. the exposure meter scale is opposite of many previous nikon bodies (overexposure to the right, underexposure to the left-- just like canon's bodies) so i had to go in and revert that. also, figuring out how to turn on the single point focus was a real pain (there's a textured button on the AF/M switch in the front). extremely time consuming, and very unclear. using the manual was helpful, but in the past, I had never used a manual when using nikon bodies.

Pros: -amazing focus, esp. good in low light -high ISO performance is unbelievable. comfortably shooting 10,000 ISO in the evenings outdoors in the city without hesitation -jpg files are very high quality, good enough to do rough editing + uploading ; RAW is a ballpark better

Cons: -the 51 AF point system isn't as widespread as previous bodies -battery life doesn't seem as strong (en-el15) vs the older enel-13 for d700 (maybe 1200-1300 photos on latter battery vs 2100 clicks on the former) -I set the back-button to AF-ON, which disables the shutter button's AF. in my previous ideal world (d700), both buttons could AF simultaneously -changing camera to Single Point focus was a real, real, real, real pain. (there's a textured button on the AF/M switch in front)

Great new Nikom

A-W-E-S-O-M-E and then some more

Rajan from Portland, OR on 10/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't brag enough about this camera. Bought it as an upgrade to a D80 that I have used for a long time and was contemplating D610 and am so glad I waited. It has all the right stuff that an amateur....wanting to play with the big boys, would want or need.

Pros: Tilt screen - making some of the odd shots easy Video quality is breath taking Coupled with a 24-70 f/2.8 - is pricey but has me set for a while.

Cons: None right now.

I am FOR SURE Buying this Little Bad Boy

Kenny from Silsbee, TX on 9/21/2014

This Camera here is what I think should have been the Nikon D7100, no IFS AND/OR BUTTS about it! Several reasons why I think so 1. Better Buffer 2. Better Low Light Shooting 3. Better Bracketing 4. an improved 3500 mkII 51 AF point AF Module and so on! This thing is IMPRESSIVE, glad I didn't buy the D7100 yet, and held off. Even thou it is Full Frame, I think this going to eventually get a whole lot more attention then the D7100 would know what to do with. JUST IMPRESSIVE Specks on this thing!!!!!!!!! Nikon Fixed EVERYTHING that I liked about the D7100, espesially the Buffer, THANK YOU NIKON!!! Oh, by the way, for anybody interested, the D750 only weighs 2.7oz heavier then the D7100, that's practically NOTHING, a couple of ounces, so what!

Recording Features

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
Normal Quality: 20 min

1920 x 1080; 24p
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.

Wi-Fi

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.
