Nikon D780 24.5Megapixel FX-Format DSLR Camera
Nikon D780 Firmware Update – The D780 is the first Nikon DSLR to use hybrid AF on this sensor, but it doesn’t seem to be the last. It’s a more upscale alternative to the popular and long-running Nikon D750, sharing the same 24-megapixel resolution, but now with fast live view autofocus, 4K video, up to 12fps continuous shooting and Improved.
Nikon D780 Design and Features
The Nikon D780 has been designed to be a well-rounded camera, appealing to many photographers. The keen amateurs are probably the primary target audience. Still, professionals who don’t crave for large resolutions (and difficult file sizes) from D850 can also find D780 interesting options and more than just capable.
The ISO range is 100-51.200, expandable to ISO 50-204.800, and D780 has a shutter speed range extended from 1/8000 seconds to 900 seconds (very good for older exposure enthusiasts). The D780 has a dual UHS-II SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, which is a pleasant surprise, and the battery life of 2,260 is an awe-inspiring shot, although we hope it will drop substantially with the use of an extensive live view mode.
Nikon D780 Performance
The Nikon D780 is unexpectedly excellent in continuous shooting. This can reach about 7fps in good viewfinder shooting, although mediocre, this jumps to 12fps in Live view, with still shooting options also.
Video capabilities are also impressive, including Unbroken 4K UHD at 30/25/24fps, 60/50fps in DX mode, and up to 120fps for full HD, but while D780 does offer eye AF for photos, this does not extend to the video. You get the Nikon N-Log option with up to 12-stop dynamic range and 10-bit capture, and you can capture the HDR HLG footage to an external recorder via the HDMI port. There is an external microphone socket, as you would expect, but the headphone socket as well.
