Nikon D750 is now shipping

The Nikon D750 has arrived! It started shipping on September 23, 2014. Those who pre-ordered are now starting to receive their cameras. Several retailers have some left in stock, to get yours now see the D750 ordering  information page. For now the body only is in stock. Kits with lens are still on pre-order, but are expected soon. The kit price is the same as the retail price on the camera and lens separately, so you can order the body only and add the same lens for the same cost. There is no other benefit to ordering the kit other than a different box!

Of course with the arrival of a new camera, we have the first unboxing video:

Expect more of these videos to come as others enjoy discovering their new camera.

Nikon D750 magnesium and carbon composite construction, body internals, material selection

The key to the new Nikon D750 is the Expeed 4 image processor. It allows the D750 to operate and process data quickly and results in images with rich color and low noise. The processor is derived from advances found in the D4s and D810. Nikon D750 Expeed 4 circuit board inside

It is housed within a body constructed from magnesium alloy and carbon reinforced thermoplastic composite. The composite, Sereebo, uses carbon fibers in a thermoplastic resin. It is highly conductive and provides electromagnetic shielding. In addition its high strength-to-weight ratio and durability exceed standard materials.

The top and back of the D750 are made from magnesium alloy. This provides extreme durability to the areas of highest wear. The front is made of carbon composite monocoque that integrates the internal camera chassis and the outer body.  The result is a camera that is both lighter and slightly smaller than the D610, yet it has better durability and contains additional features such as a tilting LCD.

The Nikon D750 features weather sealing gaskets throughout its construction. The level of moisture and dust resistance is equal to that of professional Nikon cameras.

There is a lot of technology in the D750. Both the packagaing as well as the internals represent significant advances in design and materials.

You can preorder the Nikon D750 from authorized retailers. Retail price is $2,299 for the body only. It will begin shipping September 23, 2014.


More Nikon D750 Pictures of Front, Side, and Rear of Camera

Nikon D750 rear view of camera showing controlsMore views of the new Nikon D750 have been posted. We can see the tilting LCD in action and a close look at the buttons.

The camera has a very familiar layout to those familiar with the D610.  Compared with that camera, the Info button the D750 has moved above the direction pad. The left side buttons are more like the Nikon Df and D7100.

From top to bottom of the left of the D750 LCD we have menu, help/lock, zoom in, zoom out, and secondary info button. Holding these buttons toggle white balance, image size/quality and ISO. This is a similar arrangement to the consumer camera and not like the professional cameras D810 and D4s.

Nikon D750 side view with tilting  LCD extended from cameraThe D750 side view shows the doors that cover the remote port (again, the consumer version of remote and no the professional 10-pin and flash syns ports), stereo headphone and mic inputs, and USB and HDMI output connectors. We see that the D750 has built-in WiFi as indicated by a WiFi wireless logo on the side.

The tilting LCD is double hinged and can tint both up and down. It does not appear to be able to be reversed (as the D5300) or fold away from the body to face forward. When not tilted it is recessed into the body so it does not protrude.

The side also reveals the D750 manual/auto focus lever proving that the camera has a built-in focus motor. Dedicated bracket button and flash button are on the side of the body toward the lens.

Nikon D750 front of camera with lensThe front view of the D750 camera shows the focus illumination light. We can just see the top function button next to the lens mount, there is likely a bottom one to match to adjust aperture smoothly during live view video recording, provide depth of field preview, and other functions.

A locking mode dial sits on the right, with preset U1 and U2 modes as found on the D610 and D7100. Those familiar with those cameras will be right at home on the D750. Professionals may find this camera to be rather different. The dial hass P, S, A, M, scene modes as well. The secondary dial sets the shutter release mode, S, CL, CH, remote, timer, quiet release, and quiet continuous as found on the D610 and D810.

There is a diopter adjustment on the viewfinder. The D750 viewfinder has a rectangular eyecup design.

The front also shows an infrared port for wireless remote control. We also see two holes, one on each side of the lens, that act as the built-in stereo mic.

On top next to the shutter release are metering mode (which includes the new highlight weighted exposure feature), a dedicated video recording button, and another button for EV compensation.

The official announcement is just moments away. Soon after, you will be able to pre-order the new Nikon D750 from select retailers. These links will be posted as soon as the camera is officially available for ordering.

Official Nikon D750 Speficiations Posted Before Announcement

Calumet Photo Germany briefly listed the Nikon D750 available for sale with specifications. We were tipped off by Nikon Rumors on the translation, and the features match what many had predicted. The D750 will have a 24.3 MP FX-format sensor.

The LCD screen on the D750 will measure 3.2 inches with 1,229K dots, but the key word is tiltable. This will be the first pro-level DSLR from Nikon with a tilting LCD. The D750 will also feature dual SD card slots. It will not use CF or XQD cards as some speculated.

The D750 overall design will be compact and feature weather sealing to prevent dust and moisture from entering the body. The shutter will have the improved design (most likely similar to the D810). The AF system will have 51-points and be based on the MultiCAM 3500FX as the D810 and D4s. It will also use the 91,000 pixel RGB metering sensor including the highlight weighted mode as found in the D810.

The new Nikon EXPEED 4 image processor provides more power for encoding video at high frame rates up to 60p at 1080 HD resolution.  Other frame rates include 24, 25, 30 and 50 fps. The maximum frame rate is confirmed at 6.5 fps, not requiring an external battery. New picture controls bring the total to seven types including a flat profile specialized for video. Changing aperture while recording video is also possible, as well as exposure preview in picture live view. A stereo microphone is included in the camera body, in addition to an external mic.

The D750 will provide a native ISO range of 100-12,800 and also have an expanded 50-51200 range.  As an action camera it will be optimized for low light performance including low noise at high ISO.

The Nikon D750 will be announced officially soon and at that time it will be available for pre-order from select retailers. Find where to preorder the Nikon D750 and find current information.

Nikon D750 Announcement Date set for September 2014

Nikon D750 Logo Big

The new Nikon D750 full-frame camera is expected to be announced next week, around September 11, 2014. The D750 is the much anticipated follow-up to the wildly popular D700 DSLR. It will offer action, wildlife and sports photographers a professional-level full-frame alternative to the flagship D4s.

Specifications are yet to be officially released, but the Nikon D750 will offer a 24.3 megapixel FX-format sensor capable of 6.5 fps continuous shooting without an external battery or accessory grip. It will also use the advanced MultiCAM 3500FX 51-point AF system as found in the D4s and D810 with group area AF, 3D tracking and face recognition. As a professional camera it will incorporate full weather sealing and a magnesium alloy chassis and body.

Whether it will be capable of 4K video is another question, but it should support at least full HD 1080×1960 resolution at 60p. The D750 will retain the traditional SLR construction with a reflex mirror rather than a mirrorless configuration with an electronic viewfinder.

Internally the D750 will use the latest EXPEED 4 processor and capable of ultra-high ISO, although it is not expected to compete with the D4s in terms of the highest ISO levels.

The D750 will be released within weeks after its announcement, which puts its street date around the first week of October. Expect it to be wildly popular and quite possibly backordered for months because of high demand. To assure first availability, pre-order the Nikon D750 promptly.
