Versatility through the splendor of full frame photography and 4K video, slow motion, time-lapse, remoteless long exposures and a host of impactful creative shooting tools to keep inspiration flowing. Agility through major technological enhancements like a 180K pixel Advanced Scene Recognition System, superb phase-detect autofocusing in photo and video and easy wireless image transfer to keep up with every creative demand. The D780 is a creator's dream come true. And as the successor to the expectation-shattering D750, it's a serious upgrade in terms of speed, image processing, video capability, AF performance and so much more.
Impeccable image quality with dazzling detail
The D780 boasts a 24.5MP backside illuminated FX full frame sensor, capable of remarkable light gathering for highly detailed photos and videos with ultra shallow depth of field and sharp, clean low light shots. Welcome to the brilliance of full frame.
A huge leap in cinematic technology for DSLR lovers
For those seeking the ultimate video making capabilities but who prefer the handling and performance of a DSLR, the D780 is loaded with video features that are sure to impress.
Source detail retention with 10-Bit N-Log or new HDR (HLG)
Both N-Log and new HDR (HLG) shooting formats preserve more detail, dynamic range and contrast in video. Use N-Log for footage intended for post-process colour grading or HLG for immediate, beautifully vibrant playback on displays with HLG HDR support.
All of your footage can be time-coded in-camera for easier synchronizing and logging, especially when working with multiple cameras.
With Eye-Detection Autofocus in Live View mode, the D780 tracks and locks focus on your subject’s eye using its powerful 273-point PDAF system, ensuring critically sharp portraits.
