Nikon unveils the D750: a powerful new FX-format DSLR

Nikon has just announced their latest full frame DSLR, the D750. A professional class camera, the D750 is packed with Nikon's latest technologies, and they've even attempted to make it lightweight too. Using a combination of carbon fiber and magnesium alloy for the construction of the D750, they've been able to reduce the weight compared to past models, like the D610.

Some of the D750's core features include a new 24.3-megapixel, FX-format CMOS image sensor, their EXPEED 4 image processor, a new 3.2-inch tilting RGBW display with 1.2 million dots, a 51-point AF system with 15 cross type sensors (sensitive up to f/8.0), a 91,000 pixel RGB metering sensor, and built-in Wi-Fi to name a few. Like their recently announced D810, the D750 is packed with features that will appeal with cinematographers and videographers, like Flat Picture Control and Exposure Smoothing.

Alongside the D750, Nikon has announced an all new high-quality prime lens. The new AF-S Nikkor 20mm f/1.8 ED joins four other prime f/1.8 lenses (their 85mm, 50mm, 35mmm, and 28mm). This unit offers a wide 94 degrees of focal coverage on FX-format models, or 70 degrees on a DX-format camera. It's comprised of 13 elements in 11 groups, including two ED and two aspherical elements. Nikon has also included their silent wave focus motors in the new lens, along with their nano crystal coating.

Expect to see this model sometime this month for about $799.95 USD.
