When it launched the Z-series full-frame mirrorless cameras, Nikon said it would stick to the SLR and mirrorless cameras
When it launched the Z-series full-frame mirrorless cameras, Nikon said it would stick to the SLR and mirrorless cameras. In the context of the 2020 Olympics, Nikon’s actions in SLR are worth looking forward to. The most attractive is the new flagship D6, but after all, it is Taiwan’s professional flagship product, which is meaningless to most consumers. Instead, it is the mid-range full-frame SLR D780 that integrates the Z-series mirrorless technology released in early 2020, which is expected to become the new star product of Nikon SLR.
Nikon D780 is a high-performance digital SLR camera that inherits many convenient functions of Nikon professional models, including the improved 51-point autofocus system when shooting with the viewfinder and the full-frame Nikon Z series The compound autofocus system equipped in the mirrorless single. The composite autofocus system will automatically switch between focal plane phase detection autofocus and contrast detection autofocus according to the environment and conditions. The horizontal and vertical directions cover about 90% of the frame area and have 273 focus points.
D780 uses approximately 24.5 million effective pixels and a back-incident CMOS sensor. Combined with the EXPEED 6 image processor, it can achieve good high sensitivity performance under common sensitivity settings up to ISO 51200, while maintaining a good balance between sharpness and sharpness, even at high sensitivity. Noise. In viewfinder shooting and live view shooting, the D780 supports high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 7 frames per second. In addition, exposure can be performed within a wide range of shutter speeds. D780 can not only record full-frame 4K UHD/30p video, but also full HD/120p video. In addition, the composite log gamma standard of 10-bit HDMI output can be used to record high dynamic range video.
The Nikon D780 body adopts an integrated structure, and the top and back cover are made of magnesium alloy, which makes the camera strong and durable, and light weight. The well-designed button and controller positions help you hold it stably. The energy-saving design supports about 2260 photos with one charge. In addition, the 3.2-inch foldable display and the LCD touch screen with approximately 2.359 million dots are easy to operate.
Nikon D780 main parameters:
overall Appearance design
Compared with the previous generation of D750, the exterior design style of Nikon D780 is closer to D850, so it is also called “lightweight version of D850”. The dimensions of the D780 body are 143.5 x 115.5 x 76mm, but the body weight is about 755g.
Nikon D780 machine Front of the body
The method of dividing the top cover and the body part of the D780 is similar to that of the D850. The on-camera flash is also eliminated and a microphone is placed instead. Like the D850, the Selfie indicator is changed to a long strip.
Nikon D780 machine Back of the body
On the back of the body, the position of the buttons on the D780 has been adjusted considerably compared to the D750, and an independent AF-ON button has been added. However, it is a pity that the focus selection lever was not added. The display is the same 3.2-inch 2.359 million pixel touch flip screen as the D850. It is the second full-frame SLR from Nikon that supports touch and flip display after the D850.
Nikon D780 machine Top of the body
For the top of the body, due to product positioning problems on the left, the dual-dial design of the D7XX series is adopted, while the shoulder screen and buttons on the right adopt the same layout as the D850. The three buttons are fanned around the shutter, allowing the user’s right index finger to operate these buttons in a small area, which is very convenient.
Nikon D780 machine Bottom of the body
The bottom of the D780 body is a conventional battery compartment and tripod screw hole configuration. The tripod screw hole adopts a double screw hole structure, and it can be used with some tripods to obtain better stability.
Both sides of the Nikon D780 fuselage
Both sides of the fuselage, D780 interfaces are designed It is on the left, covered by a large rubber cover. On the right is the memory card slot and handle area.
Body design details
Nikon D780 mount
Nikon D780 is equipped with a back-incident Nikon FX format CMOS sensor with approximately 24.5 million effective pixels. Combined with the EXPEED 6 image processor, D780 can achieve a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-ISO 51200, achieving good high sensitivity performance under common sensitivity settings, while maintaining a good balance between maintaining sharpness and sharpness, even It can also effectively reduce noise at high sensitivity.
Nikon D780 viewfinder
D780 improves the optical viewfinder of the optical system, with approximately 0.7 times magnification and approximately 100% screen coverage, which improves viewing comfort and facilitates real-time confirmation. It is equipped with a 51-point autofocus system with 15 cross-type sensors, and its performance has been significantly improved.
Nikon D780 shoulder Screen
The information on the shoulder screen allows the user to understand the current parameter settings of the camera at a glance. The button layout around the shutter button allows users to complete exposure-related control operations only with their right hand.
Nikon D780 translation Folding LCD screen
D780 is equipped with a touch-folding LCD screen with a screen size of 3.2 inches and 2.359 million pixels. The foldable LCD screen can help you easily control difficult-to-shoot angles. Even if the camera is mounted on a tripod, the monitor can open smoothly. When using live view, the D780 uses the composite autofocus system applied on the Nikon Z series, with 273 focus points, covering a wide range of approximately 90% of the horizontal and vertical directions of the screen.
Nikon D780 machine The left side interface of the body
The left side interface of the D780 fuselage is a microphone interface, a headphone interface, a remote control interface, a USB Type-C interface and a Type-C HDMI interface from top to bottom. At the same time, D780 also supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, making sharing more convenient.
Nikon D780 storage Card slot
In terms of memory card, D780 uses dual SD card memory card slots, both of which support UHS-II standard SD cards.
Nikon D780 battery
Nikon D780 uses an EN-EL15b lithium-ion battery pack as a power source. The battery life reached a staggering 2260 photos.
Nikon D780 uses a full-frame Nikon FX format back-incident CMOS sensor with 24.5 million effective pixels and EXPEED 6 image processor. Supports the common sensitivity range ISO 100-51200. Let’s take a look at the actual sensitivity performance. When shooting, we turned off the noise reduction in the camera.

Nikon D780 photosensitive Degree test table
It can be seen from the test picture that the Nikon D780 can maintain a relatively clean picture within ISO 3200, and the details are basically clearly visible. When it rises to ISO 6400, there will be a small amount of noise visible to the human eye. But the picture is acceptable, and the details are kept intact. Until ISO12800 began to increase noise, details began to be lost. In actual applications, IS0 6400 is basically available.
In terms of appearance, the Nikon D780 basically inherits the new style of the D850. And internally, it is basically the same as Nikon’s full-frame mirrorless Z6, which can be said to be a product of the fusion of SLR and mirrorless. In terms of functions and image quality, due to the current national epidemic prevention situation, we will bring you relevant test content after the situation improves, so stay tuned.
