Last week, we started here some rumours about the Nikon D750 finally seeing a refresh. As the oldest DSLR in Nikon’s current lineup (except for the Df – does that count?) it’s certainly due for one. A few specs were mentioned last week, but now an updated set has been released with a little bit more info. It looks like it’s shaping up to essentially be a DSLR version of the Z6.
The updated spec rumours were posted by Nikon Rumors, and offer a little more insight into what we might expect.
- It still won’t be called the D760. Expected to be either the D770 or D790
- 24-megapixel BSI sensor (improved over the D750)
- Significantly improved processor over the D750
- Higher FPS continuous RAW shooting
- 4K UHD video at 24-30fps, 1080p at 24-120fps
- 3.2″ 2.1m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD
- Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth
- No built-in popup flash
- Better high ISO performance – “better than the D850”
- Dual UHS-II SD card slots
- Between 51-153 AF points (possibly 105)
- A Z-series-like updated interface
- Slightly smaller and lighter than the current D750
- Nikon EN-EL15b battery (the same used in just about every other Nikon except the D5)
- To be released in 2020 (possibly as early as Jan/Feb for CP+, although not confirmed).
CP+ runs from 27th February to 1st March 2020, so the “Jan/Feb” thing might be a little premature. Well, at least the January part of it. But it wouldn’t surprise me for Nikon to announce something at CP+, given that they haven’t really announced much in the way of cameras for a while now except for the Z50. The D6 doesn’t count, as it’s only a development announcement, not an actual camera announcement.
There’s no word yet on whether or not it’ll get the 1/8000th max shutter speed and 1/250th flash sync that many will be hoping for. But dual UHS-II card slots will be very nice. Only 30fps on 4K UHD video is a little disappointing, though, with so many cameras offering 60fps now.
The Nikon D750 is expected to go on sale at $999 for Black Friday (currently $1,197) if you’re still considering getting one. But if you’re looking to get rid of the ones you already have, you might want to hurry before the price plummets too much.
As always, we’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
