All of your footage can be time-coded in-camera for easier synchronizing and logging, especially when working with multiple cameras.
Source detail retention with 10-Bit N-Log or new HDR (HLG).
Both N-Log and new HDR (HLG) shooting formats preserve more detail, dynamic range and contrast in video. Use N-Log for footage intended for post-process color grading or HLG for immediate, beautifully vibrant playback on displays with HLG HDR support.
With Eye-Detection Autofocus in Live View mode, the D780 tracks and locks focus on your subject’s eye using its powerful 273-point PDAF system, ensuring critically sharp portraits.
Disruption-free silent shooting at 12 FPS.
The perfect photo isn't worth ruining the perfect moment. In Live View, you can shoot in complete silence at full resolution without compromising any of the D780's staggering photo quality. And with the mirror out of the equation, high-speed shooting is increased to an incredible 12 FPS.

*17% faster compared to D750's 6.5 frames per second.
EXPEED 6. Two steps forward. No looking back.
Powering the newest generation of Nikon DSLR and mirrorless cameras, the EXPEED 6 image-processing engine is both the brains and the muscle behind the camera’s stunning photo and video quality, AF performance, low-light clarity, color reproduction and more.
Exhilarating shutter speeds to 1/8000s.
Elusive wildlife and incredible athleticism are just another opportunity for the D780 to shine. With breakneck shutter speeds up to 1/8000 second, dynamic fast action is frozen in time with incredible detail and sharpness, freeing you to get the most from your fast aperture lenses.
Time-bending long exposures. No Remote Necessary.
Beautifully fluid, long exposure photography is easy to achieve with the D780's selectable in-camera shutter speeds.* Now, captivating star trails and waterscapes can be captured without a remote timer, just like the D810A specialty model, all the way up to 15 minutes.
A Breakthrough in low light.
The D780's exceptional low light performance is nothing short of liberating. Highly sensitive with minimal noise, the D780 achieves ISOs up to 51,200 (expandable to ISO 204,800), eclipsing the coveted D850.
Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24-120mm f4G IF ED VR Zoom Lens Details
While the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Zoom Lens from Nikon is designed primarily for use with FX-format D-SLR cameras, it's equally at home on any DX-format D-SLR camera. As a standard 5.0x zoom on an FX-format camera body, it's perfect for landscapes, portraits, and weddings - it's an excellent choice for a perfect take-along-everywhere lens. On a DX-format camera, the focal length gets a 1.5x bump that turns it into a formidable longer-range optic with enough wide angle for all but the widest of shots.
The AF-S 24-120 ED VR is a versatile imaging tool with a constant maximum aperture of f/4.0 - this enables photographers to maintain exposure settings throughout the entire zoom range. For those critical focusing-moments - the M/A focus mode switch allows the shooter to quickly change between manual and autofocus modes.
Nikon's optical engineers have graced the lens elements with their proprietary Super Integrated Coating- a superior multicoating process that enhances light transmission for maximum clarity, crispness, and contrast. Additionally this NIKKOR offering also benefits from Nikon's very own Nano Crystal Coat - a high-tech lens treatment that ensures maximum imaging quality by limiting or eliminating the negative effects from ghosting, flare, and glare.
Low-light shooters will greatly appreciate the benefits from the addition of Nikon's VR II image stabilization system. This amazing internal virtual-tripod allows photographers to work with shutter-speeds up to 4x slower than usual - whether it's a candle-lit snap-shot or a moody portrait taken in a dark alley-way under a dingy street-lamp - hand-held photographers can rely on the AF-S 24-120 ED VR for sharp, clear, and extremely well-detailed imaging.
Compact & Versatile 5x Standard Zoom Lens with f/4 Maximum Aperture
Perfect for landscapes, portraits, weddings, and distant subjects. Offers a constant maximum aperture to maintain exposure settings throughout the entire zoom range
Extended Range on Nikon DX-format D-SLR Cameras
Angle of view is equivalent to a focal length of 36-180mm in DX-format cameras.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction technology that's engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens - enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible. This ensures dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements
Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture setting.
3 Aspherical Lens Elements
Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration, even when shooting at the widest available aperture.
Nano Crystal Coat
Further reduces ghosting and interior flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
M/A Focus Mode Switch
Enables quick changes between manual and autofocus operation.
Internal Focus (IF)
Provides fast and quiet autofocus without changing the length of the lens to maintain the working distance throughout the focus range. It also keeps the front element from spinning, which maintains the position of a polarizer or lens hood.
Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
Enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus.
Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
Renders images with a more natural appearance in out-of-focus areas (bokeh)
