The D750 is the first FX-format camera to be equipped with a tilting LCD monitor and boasts a lightweight body of only 750g. With advanced image processing using the EXPEED 4 and uncompromised autofocus even in low-light conditions of up to EV-3, its shooting capabilities deliver a finish rivalling that of cameras used by professional photographers. Find out more about the 9 wonderful features of the D750.
The tilting LCD monitor has a 3-axis hinge structure that allows it to be tilted 90° upwards and 75° downwards, and is always in line with the optical axis, unlike monitors that open horizontally. Furthermore, the adjustable, large 3.2-inch, high-definition, 1229k-dot LCD monitor employs a RGBW alignment for excellent colour as well as great visibility.
The camera is equipped with a CMOS sensor that has 24.3 million effective pixels. While the D5600 has 24.2 million effective pixels, the FX-format sensor on the D750 means that it is larger and has a wider pixel pitch. This allows it to receive even more light, which improves its capability to reproduce gradations in images. In terms of the image-processing engine, the D750 uses EXPEED 4, the same as that used on the D810.
While following in the footsteps of the 51-point AF system used on the high-end D810, the D750 is equipped with a newly developed sensor module. This allows the D750 to achieve enhanced focus detection capability even at an astoundingly dim -3 EV (ISO 100, 20℃). Of the 51 focus points, 11 points (shown in red and blue) are compatible with a maximum aperture of f/8. This means that smooth AF shooting is possible even at an effective maximum aperture of f/8 when a telephoto lens with a teleconverter are used in combination.
The Special Effects mode is a staple on entry-level Nikon DSLRs, but the D750 is the first FX-format model to be equipped with this feature. Effects such as "Miniature Effect", "High Key", and "Low Key" are displayed on the LCD monitor in real time, which allows you to check the effect while shooting. These effects can also be used while shooting movies.
The layout of the information display has been changed significantly to provide a more intuitive graphical user interface that is easier to understand. Information other than settings such as the f-number, shutter speed and exposure compensation is separated by ruled lines in the layout. The colour of the lettering on the display can also be set to black or white, or even to automatically change depending on the background.
The D750 is the first FX-format model to employ a monocoque body design that is also compact and lightweight thanks to the integrated structure of the external cover. While magnesium is used for the top and rear cover, new carbon fibre material is used for the front body and the front cover, realising a light weight of 750g for the camera body while maintaining its robustness.

The control panel on the top of the camera has been slimmed down without loss of visibility, giving a more stylish impression. The display of the exposure compensation value indicator, which is changed relatively frequently by intermediate-level users during a shoot, has been enlarged. Furthermore, the display size of both the f-number and shutter speed, which are particularly important during a shoot, have been made larger than that on the D610 for easier viewing.

Even users with large hands can hold the camera securely and comfortably, with sufficient room even for the little finger. The secret to that is in the depth of the groove (indicated in red). This depth of the groove was made possible by reviewing the layout of various components of the body, such as rearranging the position of the battery (indicated in blue) from a vertical to a horizontal position. Also, Nikon has employed the same leather-tone finish for the grip as that on the D810 in order to ensure a non-slip surface.
The D750 is the first FX-format model with Wi-Fi capability built-in. By using the iOS/Android-compatible Wireless Mobile Utility app, you can transfer your photos and videos to an external device such as a smartphone, and even perform operations remotely.
