The Nikon D750 is a popular FX camera for both enthusiasts and professionals. It has been discontinued by Nikon which means it is no longer in production.
This full-frame DSLR camera has become very popular since its release in 2014, and it is still a great camera to use today. Its 24 MP full-frame sensor is still relevant and capable of producing high-quality images.
I still have this camera in my arsenal and I use it when I’m looking for something lighter (although the D750 is still a big DSLR).
What camera has replaced it?
The Nikon D780 has been released as a replacement for the D750. It has a similar 24 MP full-frame sensor but it has more features such as:
- can now shoot at higher ISOs
- better battery life
- eye-detection autofocus
- touch screen
- 1/8000 maximum shutter speed (vs 1/4000 for D750)
- in-camera USB charging
Is the Nikon D750 still worth buying today?
Now, this is all a personal opinion. I still think the D750 is a great camera, and I’d probably grab one if it were on sale. This full-frame DSLR is still one of the best on the used market, and it’s an excellent choice for anyone looking to get into photography.
The camera has all the features you need in a professional-grade DSLR and it’s relatively affordable. And here are more reasons why the D750 is still a great choice today:
- Despite newer camera models being available, the D750 still offers great performance at a good price.
- Its build quality is solid, although I wished it had a full magnesium body like higher-end models. However, the D750’s body feels durable and compact enough to be easily carried around.
- This camera is weather-sealed to the same standard as Nikon’s D800-series, providing protection against rain and dust. However, it’s important to note that weather sealing doesn’t guarantee complete water resistance, so caution is advised in extreme conditions.
- The button layout is user-friendly. I also like the grip on the camera which is comfortable and stable, particularly when I’m using heavier lenses.
- The viewfinder is big and bright. It provides a good view, similar to more expensive Nikon cameras.
- The autofocus system is reliable and fast, with a 51-point AF system called MultiCam 3500 II. It performs well in low-light conditions and I find it accurate.
- Its battery life is impressive, especially when using Nikon lenses without stabilization and minimizing screen usage.
- Good performance and image quality at a reasonable price
- Compact and durable body
- Weather sealed
- Comfortable grip
- Dual card slot
- Reliable and fast autofocus system, with useful features
- Good overall speed and efficient operation
- Prosumer button layout, some users would prefer a more advanced layout
- Live view autofocus can be slow for moving subjects
- Limited burst shooting speed for fast action or sports photography
Overall, the Nikon D750 is a great camera for those who want something small, but powerful. It’s also a good option for those who want to use both stills and video, as it offers great performance and image quality at a reasonable price point.
Is the Nikon D750 a professional camera?
Yes, this full-frame DSLR is geared toward professional photographers, who are not looking for a high-resolution camera, but more for a camera that is flexible and can handle the workload of professional photography.
I know a few portrait photographers in the US and UK who still use this camera as their primary tool in their business.
It’s also a great option for wedding photographers (like myself) who shoot a lot of indoor events. The camera’s high ISO performance is still great for a camera that was released in 2014.
So, if you’re thinking of getting one for your photography business then you should definitely consider it.
Even though the Nikon D750 is old and discontinued, it still offers great image quality, great autofocus performance, and the versatility of a full-frame camera.
This is a good option if you’re just starting out. I can also say that its price-to-performance ratio is still one of the best in the market today.
