Nikon D600 upgrade to D750?

by photolsen / March 30, 2016 11:29 PM PDT

I'm thinking about upgrading from my Nikon D600, and have taken a look at the D750.
It seems like it would perform much better in low light situations than my D600.

What i need it for is primarily Wildlife/Landscape photography.
(I know i should have chosen a camera with a bit more fps, but don't have the money at the moment).

Any suggestion is appreciated.

D600 vs D750?

In reply to: Nod to the tripod. seems to find that shootout.

These are too close to write you'll get enough difference for the money. I don't know your prices but you're into 1000+ for the change and little to show for it.

If your only reason for upgrading to a D750 is for better low light performance, you will see little difference.
With an ISO specification of 51200 vs 25600; that sounds like a lot but it is equivalent to only one f-stop.
You would be better off spending money for a good tripod.
With a tripod, you can safely reduce your shutter speed without suffering any camera movement.
And the tripod is about $2,000 cheaper.

I got several tripods for different usages, but i have head that the D750 has less noise at higher ISO than the D750 and was just wondering if any of you had tested the two cameras side by side or own the D750 to confirm if it perform as well as i've been told.

Thanks tho.

Hi photolsen - i am using a d600 and a d810. To be honest moving from a d600 to a d750 is a lot of money going away from your lens park in my opinion. Actually you would gain fps, but real perf here is on the d4/d5 regarding wildlife.

In terms of landscape it makes no sense, you may want to consider a d800/810 for image quality and Mpx.

In terms of low light, the d750 seems to do great as per online tests, but the d600 does very well as well. And what is meant by "grat low light quality" is relative, should you print 100% size you do not want to go above 400ISO on any camera if you expect zero noise.

But the best upgrade you could probably make is to move from mid-range lenses, if that's the case, to a pro range that will be much more benefit.

As an exemple, you may want to have a look across theses galerie : - they are a combination of D600 / D810 sharing the same optics and I bet no one can tell which pic is from which camera Wink That's to say that at the end the d600 can match any camera of the Nikon range in terms of final result quality, as long as the specs (fps especially) allows you to shoot in the first place.

I'll happily give you more info/exemples on that if you want. Happy photography! PH

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
