Sorry, we have no items in stock.
The Nikon D780 is a high-performance full-frame DSLR aimed at both creative photographers and videographers. The tough D780 features a 24.5 MP full-frame CMOS sensor, EXPEED 6 image processor and the same 180K-pixel RGB sensor & Advanced Scene Recognition system as the D850. Also featured is a fast, dedicated Hybrid-AF system for Live View shooting and a fast, powerful 51-point Phase-Detection AF system for viewfinder shooting. When shooting in Live View, photographers and movie makers benefit from the same AF system as found in the Nikon Z 6 mirrorless camera. Users can lock onto expressions with Eye-Detection AF and take advantage of low-light AF, which powers reliable subject acquisition all the way down to -6 EV. Photographers shooting through the viewfinder benefit from flagship tracking performance, and quick switching between advanced AF modes.
Speeds of up to 7 fps in viewfinder shooting is possible, and 12 fps in Silent Photography mode during Live View shooting. Other notable features include the blazing maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 s, which gives photographers the flexibility to sync with Nikon Speedlights. Or they can stretch time all the way to 900 s, perfect for capturing dramatic light trails and nightscapes. Movie shooters will love the quality of the footage they can achieve with the D780. The camera uses its 6K image sensor resolution to produce ultra-high-resolution 4K/UHD footage at 30p/25p/24p with zero crop factor. Videographers can also use an external movie recorder to capture rich HLG HDR footage, which can be shown directly on a compatible TV or monitor.
24.5 MP full-frame CMOS sensor
The back-illuminated 24.5 MP full-frame CMOS sensor and EXPEED 6 image processor offer wide dynamic range and clean performance across the ultra-wide ISO range. The same 180K-pixel RGB sensor and Advanced Scene Recognition system as the D850 delivers incredible precision.
Two AF systems
The D780 packs a fast, dedicated Hybrid-AF system for Live View shooting, and a fast, reliable Phase-Detection AF system for viewfinder shooting. In Live View, the highly accurate AF system gives you 273 on-sensor AF points and Eye-Detection AF. When shooting through the viewfinder, you can harness Nikon’s powerful 51-point AF system with flagship tracking capabilities.
The D780 uses its 6K image sensor resolution to produce ultra-high-resolution 4K/UHD footage at 30p/25p/24p with zero crop factor. You can record Full HD slow-motion footage in-camera at up to 120p, with audio. And you can record footage in DX format at 50p/60p frame rates. AF speed and AF tracking can be set during recording, and there are four AF-area modes for video.
Bright light or low light
An ISO range of 100–51200, extendable up to an incredible 204800 and down to ISO 50, lets you adapt instantly to changing light. Achieve rich tones under bright sunlight. Reveal detail and nuance in low light.
Get burst rates of up to 7 fps with AF/AE when shooting through the viewfinder. Get up to 12 fps when shooting in Silent Live View Photography mode. You get full resolution images, even when shooting in RAW.
You can create spectacular 4K/UHD time-lapse movies in-camera. Exposure smoothing reduces variation between images, for seamless transitions. Silent interval-timer shooting counters mechanical blur and shutter noise. Low-light metering can be expanded to -6 EV in Low-Light AF, and shutter speed can be extended up to 900 s.
Shoot in all weather conditions
Extensive weather sealing and the tough magnesium alloy body ensure the D780 is ready for any location. Dual slots accept fast UHS-II SD cards that easily handle the camera’s fast burst speeds and keep the buffer clear. The deep grip and long battery life make all the difference on extended shoots.
