A 51-point AF system that captures the intended subject with great accuracy and precision

The AF system has been greatly improved since the D750, especially when it comes to autofocusing performance with viewfinder shooting. The powerful calculation capability realized by the EXPEED 6 image-processing engine, as well as the detailed subject information acquired by the Advanced Scene Recognition System and upgraded 180K-pixel RGB sensors contribute to enhanced subject tracking in 3D-tracking mode. In combination with the AF algorithm adapted from the D5, these technologies also contribute to improved subject detection in the auto-area mode, enabling the capture of intended subjects with even greater accuracy.

A 273-point hybrid AF system that utilizes focal-plane phase-detection AF and supports Eye-detection AF

The D780 is the first Nikon digital SLR for which focal-plane phase-detection AF has been adopted. This represents a tremendous evolution in AF performance with live view photography and movie recording. The hybrid AF system, which automatically switches between focal-plane phase-detection AF and contrast-detect AF in accordance with the situation and conditions, covers approximately 90% of the frame, both horizontally and vertically, with 273 focus points. This makes it easy for the camera to focus on subjects at the edges of the frame. The D780 also supports Eye-detection AF, with which the camera accurately recognizes human eyes even when the person is moving, when using the live view photography in auto-area AF mode. This ensures certain focus on the subject's eyes with portraits and the like, allowing the photographer to comfortably concentrate on framing their images. What's more, AF speed* and AF tracking sensitivity with movie recording can be adjusted, enabling smooth autofocusing in accordance with the creative intention.

*AF speed cannot be adjusted when certain lenses are used.

High-quality stills and movies exhibiting superior high-sensitivity performance with very little noise

An effective pixel count of 24.5 million pixels and a backside illumination CMOS sensor, itself equipped with focal-plane phase-detection AF pixels, have been adopted for the D780. This, in combination with adoption of the EXPEED 6 image-processing engine, realizes excellent high-sensitivity performance at the maximum standard sensitivity setting of ISO 51200* with optimal balance between preserving sharpness and clarity, while effectively reducing noise, even at high sensitivities. The camera is also capable of recording not only full-frame 4K UHD/30p movies, but also full-HD/120p movies. Further, high dynamic range (HDR) movies can be recorded using the hybrid log-gamma (HLG) standard during 10-bit HDMI output, producing beautiful video with rich tones and gradations that faithfully reproduce every detail in high-contrast scenes, all without post-recording color grading.

*ISO sensitivity can be expanded down to the equivalent of ISO 50 and up to the equivalent of ISO 204800.

Performance and functions that support diverse imaging expression

The D780 supports high-speed continuous shooting at up to approximately 7 fps with both viewfinder shooting and live view photography. Expansion of the camera's memory buffer enables capture of approximately four times as many shots (up to approx. 68) with a single burst of high-speed continuous shooting of large,14-bit lossless compressed RAW files as was possible with the D750, ensuring that users never miss a photo opportunity. What's more, a broad range of shutter speeds, from the fastest at 1/8000 s to the longest at 900 s, is available. In addition to effectively capturing rapidly moving subjects, combining the 1/8000 s maximum shutter speed with the maximum apertures provided by fast lenses enables capture of stunning portraits, even under extremely bright, sunlit conditions. The slowest shutter speed setting available — 900 s — is perfect for astrophotography and other long time-exposures.

The D780 is also equipped with movie-recording functions that respond extremely well to user needs, including a function for automatically recording slow-motion movies at 4x or 5x the normal recording speed, as well as Nikon's exclusive N-Log* option for use with 10-bit HDMI output.

*Footage is recorded only to the external device; it cannot be recorded to the memory card inserted in the camera.

Superior reliability and operability that make the camera effective with a broader range of photographic scenes

The camera body has a monocoque structure with which a magnesium alloy has been adopted for the top and rear covers, ensuring superior rigidity and durability with a lighter weight. Each part of the camera has been effectively sealed for reliable dust and drip resistance. Operation has also been improved with careful consideration of button and control positioning and a grip that ensures a firm and steady hold.

A power-saving design enables capture of approximately 2,260 frames (measured in accordance with CIPA standard) on a single charge, providing worry-free shooting over an extended period of time. In addition, a 3.2-in., 2,359k-dot LCD touch screen has been adopted for the tilting monitor equivalent to that used by the Nikon D850 (released in September 2017), enabling diverse touch operation. The D780 responds to a variety of scenes and conditions with superior reliability and operability that realize comfortable and intuitive shooting.

Additional features
