Like the D750 it replaces, the Nikon D780 is a full-frame or FX format DSLR with the Nikon F-lens mount. That means its has a sensor that’s the same size as a 35mm film frame.
Nikon has also stuck with a very similar resolution as the D750 for the D780. However, the 24Mp sensor in the D780 is much newer than the D750’s. In fact, it has the same 24.5Mp backside illuminated (BSI) sensor as the Z6. Consequently, in video and Live View mode, the D780 uses the same hybrid autofocus system as the Z6.
This system combines phase detection with contrast detection and there are 273 points available for selection, plus Eye-Detection AF for stills-shooting. This AF system is claimed to be sensitive down to -4Ev in normal circumstances and -6Ev in Low Light AF mode with lenses with a maximum aperture of f/2 or wider.
As it’s an SLR, the D780 has another autofocus system for when images are composed in the optical viewfinder. This has a dedicated AF sensor with 51 user-selectable phase detection AF points with 15 cross-type points. According to Nikon this AF system is sensitive down to -3Ev and it offers ‘flagship tracking capabilities’.
Further good news for viewfinder users is that the D780 has the same 180K-pixel RGB sensor (for metering and white balance) and Advanced Scene Recognition system as the D850.
Thanks to the D780’s Expeed 6 processing engine it’s able to shoot full-resolution images at up to 7fps (frames per second) with continuous autofocusing and metering, or 12fps in Silent Live View Photography mode.
The buffer has capacity to enable up to 28 14-bit raw images or 100 Jpeg images to be captured in one hit.
The D780 can shoot 4K/UHD video at 30p/25p/24p with no cropping. Footage can also be recorded in N-Log, for greater scope for post-capture grading, or Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) for viewing on compatible TVs.
It’s also possible to shoot slow-motion movies in-camera, which means the output plays back at the slower speed with no need for settings adjustments.
There’s also in-camera time-lapse capability and provided you’re happy with 8Mp images, you can shoot at up to 30fps. Drop to 2Mp and you can record at 120fps.
Enticingly, the D780’s sensor and processing engine combination enables a wider sensitivity range than the popular D850. The native range is ISO 100–51200, but this can be extended to ISO 50-204800. The D850’s maximum range is ISO 64-102,400, but it also has a resolution of 45.7million pixels.
