Z6 Technology comes to the Nikon F Mount

The Nikon D780 is the modern successor to one of Nikon’s cult-status D750. The D780 is the first DSLR to incorporate a slew of mirrorless features inherited from its Z6 sibling while retaining the familiar ergonomics and the iconic Nikon F lens mount.

Hybrid DSLR & Mirrorless Technology

Touted as a true hybrid camera the D780 is the perfect choice for modern photographers and digital creatives. With the increased need for professionals and enthusiasts to shoot both photo and video, the camera blurs the lines between DSLR and mirrorless technologies to offer the best options from both worlds.

24.5 Megapixel BSI Sensor

At its heart is an updated Full Frame 24.5 Megapixel Backside illuminated sensor that delivers stunning detail and impressive low-noise results when shooting in difficult lighting situations.

Native ISO51200 Performance

Its ISO performance has been dramatically increased to take advantage of the sensors new capabilities. A new native limit of ISO51200, up from the previous ISO12800 in the D750 offers an incredible amount of creative versatility. An extended range of ISO50 to ISO204800 equips you with the confidence to nail the shot even in the darkest situations.

EXPEED 6 Image Processor

The latest generation EXPEED 6 image processor is combined with an uprated shutter mechanism to double the shutter speed of the previous generation from 1/4000s to 1/8000s. Long exposures have also been extended to 15 minutes for added convenience when shooting astro. Naturally, bulb mode is still available.

Up to 12fps Continuous Shooting

The continuous burst mode shooting is where we see the hybrid DSLR/Mirrorless design begin to bear fruit. With an improved 7fps with the mechanical shutter and a blistering 12fps maximum when using live view and the electronic shutter, you’re equipped to capture even the most fleeting moments.

Hybrid Optical & Live View AF Performance

Focusing is fast and accurate thanks to inherited tech from its siblings. Focusing through the optical viewfinder is achieved via a 51-point AF system that’s been inherited from the flagship D5. Live View focusing uses a 273 point on-chip phase-detect system which covers approximately 90% of the image sensor. Face and Eye Tracking AF can also be utilised in Live View shooting, making it perfect for nailing critical focus in portraits.

4K30 & FHD120 Video Recording

When pictures aren’t enough to tell the story, the D780 offers 4K30 and Full HD 120fps recording. Video is recorded with the full width of the sensor and no pixel binning, ensuring the full potential of the 35mm sensor is utilised. Its 120fps frame rate at Full HD is great for slow motion and adds an additional element of creative potential.

4K Time-Lapse In-Camera

Time-Lapse shooting and 4K time-lapse movies are now also available in-camera. The built-in interval timer allows you to configure your duration and shot interval to output a 4K video file for instant sharing. The time-lapse mode can also be done post-shooting, allowing you to select a range of sequential image files to allow you to create the in-camera 4K video for any given period within your entire time-lapse duration.

2.3 Million-Dot Tilting Touchscreen

The rear of the D780 houses a 3.2-inch, 2.3million dot tilting touch screen. The large touch screen design makes it a breeze to navigate menus and playback, while the tilting design is well suited to shooting from ground-level for capturing unique perspectives.

Dual UHS-II SD Memory Slots

Dual UHS-II SD Card Slots add versatility and peace of mind for professional shooters. Reduce the need to swap out cards, save photos to one card and video to another, save RAW to one card and JPEGS to another or automatically save all content to both cards as a failsafe backup.

Wireless Snapbridge Connectivity

Suited to the modern content creator, the Nikon D780 also features Wireless Snapbridge connectivity making it handy for social sharing. Also ideal to take on your travels, it features in-camera battery charging, eliminating the need to carry bulky chargers and cables.

This kit includes the Nikon D780 DSLR Camera Body + Nikon AF-S 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Lens
