Nikon D750 Sensor Review: Another Nikon sensor in the DxOMark top 10By Paul Carroll - Thursday October 23 2014 Sensor Review
One of the hottest launches from this year’s Photokina trade show, the Nikon D750, has grabbed the attention of serious amateurs and pros alike. Boasting a newly developed 24.3Mp sensor, expanded ISO sensitivity range and a host of features from their pro DSLRs it looks a mouth-watering prospect. Lets take a look at the D750 sensor scores and results to see how it stacks up against the full frame competition.
Nikon D750 Introduction: A new Nikon full frame product line
Building upon the recent success of the D610 & D810 DSLRs, the Nikon D750 represents a new Nikon product line that sits between these existing models and borrows some features from each. The D750 offers a similar design and build quality to the D810, which is a step up from the D610. Although featuring the same 24.3Mp resolution as D610, Nikon state the D750’s FX sensor is ‘newly designed’ and now offers greater ISO sensitivity between ISO100 – ISO12,800, expandable to ISO 51,200. Like the D610 the D750’s sensor also employs an Anti-Aliasing filter to smooth out finer details and avoid the adverse effects of Moire. This is in contrast to the D810’s 36.4Mp sensor, which has the filter removed allowing the sensor to recording greater detail.
The D750 also slots in between the D610 and D810 models in terms of price with an initial body-only price tag of $2,297, compared to $1,797 for the D610 and $3,297 for the D810. It’s also marginally more expensive than the main semi pro DSLR competition such as the $1,899 Canon EOS 6D and $1,998 Sony a99. There are lots of mouth watering specs on offer for the cash however, including Nikon’s top end Expeed 4 image processor from the D4 series, 3.2” 1.3m-dot tilting LCD screen for shooting video, Multi-CAM 3500FX II 51-point autofocus system, 6.5fps continuous burst shooting and built-in wi-fi. Lets take a closer look at the scores for the new Nikon D750 sensor with comparisons to image quality results from its main competitors to see where its strengths and weaknesses lie.
