Nikon D780 Digital SLR camera review: potential comparable to flagship camera.

By  Lauren Soltan 2020-02-21 1819 15

[PConline review] in the twinkling of an eye, Nikon released an updated version of the D750 D780 with the same 24.5 million backlight sensor and EXPEED 6 image processor as the Nikon Z6. Its positioning has always been very controversial, I personally think it is for D610, D800 users who want to upgrade, but do not want to give up their original F bayonet lens, so this combines the respective characteristics of D850 and Z6, it can be said to have a certain "weight". So is it just a change of name or has it already been reborn? Let's take a look at the review of the D780.

1 . Appearance comment.

After getting hold of it, the first feeling is very similar to the Nikon D850, the built-in flash has been removed, and the warship's head, handle and other designs are similar to the D850.

The rear cover and top of the D780 are designed with an integrated fuselage made of aluminum alloy. The size of the fuselage is about 143.5 x 115.5 x 76mm, and the weight of the fuselage with battery is about 840g.

The handle design of the Nikon D780 is also excellent. It borrows the button layout of the Z6 micro-single camera and places the video button, ISO and exposure compensation button next to the shutter. It is a very good design.

The design of the mode turntable is also quite simple, similar to that on the Z6 microcamera, which is one of the current trends to put more operations on the touchscreen. The shoulder screen remains unchanged and can display the basic shooting parameters.

The Nikon D780 uses a 2.36 million-pixel touch screen that can be folded 3.2in, and the LOGO of the Nikon is adjusted to the upper left corner of the screen. The back button has also been optimized and adjusted, but it is still not equipped with a lever.

The Nikon D780 uses a 51-point autofocus system with 15 cross sensors, and its performance has been significantly improved. Thanks to the powerful EXPEED 6 image processor and the scene recognition system, about 180000 pixel RGB sensors can obtain detailed body information, making it more accurate and tight in 3D tracking mode. In the optical viewfinder, ultra-low light focusing of-7EV can be achieved.

The Nikon D780 still uses a dual SD card slot design, with a maximum support for UHS-II SD cards.

Great changes have been made to the interface. The first is to put the microphone and headphone interface on top, replace the mainstream Type-C interface, and support USB charging. The dust cover has become the design of Z6, which is convenient to install rabbit cages and other equipment.

The Nikon D780 uses a EN-EL15b battery, which, as mentioned above, is a battery that can be rechargeable on the fuselage and does not worry about battery life during the journey.

Two buttons, Pv and Fn, are also kept next to the F card. There is also a familiar red on the handle.

F bayonet should have everything, fuselage motor, aperture diaphragm, aperture ring, etc., can be compatible with the existing F bayonet lens. What I want to mention here is that the shutter speed range of D780 has been extended to 11600s. You read it correctly, it is 900s, which is very convenient for friends who take pictures of starry sky.

Hand autofocus mode dial lever and focus mode buttons are equipped, as well as the familiar FX nameplate. On Nikon's product line, the full frame will be named in FX format, and the APS-C frame will be named in DX format. Well, at first glance, it seems that the D780 is really different from what it used to be, so let's take a look at the picture quality test.


2 . Picture quality test.

The Nikon D780 fuselage is equipped with AF-S 50mm fanner 1.4G lens, and all fuselage optimization is turned off. in A mode, the aperture value is fhand 8, and each ISO is filmed for comparison. The test results are as follows:

Nikon D780 in the ISO 100 to 6400 sensitivity range, the picture quality performance can be said to be quite good, the performance of the detail texture or edge details are very clear and unambiguous, it can be said that there is no pressure at all. The sensitivity as high as ISO 12800 to ISO 51200 begins to have obvious noise, but it does not affect the use. When it comes to the extreme sensitivity of ISO 204800, it is rarely used, but it is better to use it in an emergency than not to see it at all.


3 . Actual sample photo.


4 . Summary of PConlinereview room.

Many people say that the cancellation of the internal flash by Nikon D780 is a move similar to that of the D850. in fact, I think the internal flash is really useful in some cases. The biggest feeling of this new machine is that it is very affordable and can be well qualified as an upgrade full-frame or entry-level full-frame. There is also the integration of some of the use habits of the Z6 micro-single camera, so that he has both the shell of the SLR camera and the core of the micro-single camera, which is a development trend of the DSLR.
