Impeccable image quality with dazzling detail.
The D780 boasts a 24.5MP backside-illuminated FX full-frame sensor, capable of remarkable light gathering for highly detailed photos and videos with ultra-shallow depth of field and sharp, clean low light shots. Welcome to the brilliance of full-frame.
Smooth slow-motion video.
Capture every detail of movement with 120 FPS. Then play them back at 30, 25 or 24 FPS for jaw-dropping fluid slow motion in 1080p High Definition.
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.
Tilt, touch, swipe, pinch.
The tilting touchscreen LCD makes it easy to get the shot, even from high or low angles. Use Touch AF, Touch Shutter control and navigate menus, playback and more as if you were using a touch-enabled smart device.
Ready for action.
Improved 7 frames per second high-speed shooting make the most of the D780's incredible autofocus system and flagship AF performance for spot-on subject acquisition and tracking.*
*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.
