Photographers and videographers alike will now be able to capture the best action in swift motion and never have the fear of missing out with the new D780. Delivering amazing refinements in image quality, performance and versatility.
The new D780 sets the standard for next-generation cameras featuring evolved autofocus (AF) system with easy-to-view optical view finder and high AF precision in low light situation. As a result, shooting with higher accuracy is achieved with no time lag and better clarity. The D780 is further complemented by NIKKOR’s extensive selection of high-performance interchangeable F mount lenses along with improved battery life all condensed into a compact, high performing body.
Capture Subjects with Precision
Be it adrenaline-filled motor sports in action or once-in-a-lifetime wedding moments, this camera offers two powerful AF systems to suit different situations.
Experience smoother and faster AF accuracy with the advanced 273 point hybrid AF which automatically switches between focal-plane phase detection AF or contrast-detection AF that covers approximately 90% of the image area. For viewfinder shooting, the D780 uses a 51-point AF with 15 cross-points. Equipped with the 180K-pixel RGB sensor, EXPEED 6’s powerful calculation capabilities and improved AF fine tune greatly increases the precision and accuracy of automatically controlled functions including autofocus (AF), auto exposure (AE), and auto white balance (AWB). Perfect for subject acquisition during night shots and concerts, the D780 excels in low-light illumination AF detection down to -5.0 EV3 and -7.0 EV4 Swiftly capturing all the action in high-speed continuous shooting at up to approximately 7fps with both viewfinder shooting and live view photography.
In situations where the silence of the clicks are appreciated such as conferences, ballet performances or even key gymnastic moments, the silent photography mode using full pixels with up to approximately 12fps comes in handy and effective
Expressive Movie making Capabilities
Featuring an effective pixel count of 24.5 megapixels and high sensitivity at ISO 51200 (expandable to ISO 204800), the D780 also supports 4K UHD with full pixel readout, Full HD/120p recording, allowing users to record movies that make the most of wide-angle lenses’ and broad angles of view delivering edge to edge sharpness. AF speed and AF tracking sensitivity can also be set during movie recording which means smooth focusing according to creative intentions is possible, utilizing the advantages of focal-plane phase-detection AF.
Ingenious operability and connectivity
For those who dabble in long exposure or astrophotography, the D780 is now capable of extending its shutter speed up to 900 seconds making it possible for more creative output. Through the D780’s retouch menu, user can adjust the in-camera image overlay to lighten or darken even after shooting. Images adjusted using the Special Effects mode can also now be saved as RAW images. Now with a new energy saving design that supports longer shooting time, and a double memory card slot compatible with UHS II SD cards
Featuring SnapBridge with RAW transfer and filtering settings, Bluetooth remote control operation, together with enhanced built-in Wi-Fi functions and WT-7/A/B/C compatibility.
The D780 is a highly versatile and agile DSLR camera with significant upgrades from the well-loved D750 camera. With refined autofocus functions so that photographers can achieve higher focus accuracy when shooting both photos and videos, along with optimization in operation layout and ergonomics so that they can shoot in comfort when they are out and about.
