Nikon D750 delivers for the money

Cameras
[MUSIC] It's been six long years since Nikon debuted the D700. But the D750 compensates pretty well. It's $23,000 price tag for the 23 megapixel full frame camera. Might put it out of reach for advanced photographers who's budget runs closer to $1800 for a body. But it's otherwise a perfect camera for a variety of people. People who are picky about their photographs, who need better high sensitivity quality than you can get with a less expensive full frame or an APSC based model. And who needs speed for action shooting. Plus it's an attractive choice for pros who are looking for a good value. I'm Lori Grunin, senior editor at CNet, and this is the Nikon D750. The camera's design is pretty much like the D610, but it has the weather-sealing of the D810. The design's pretty streamlined. Every setting you need has a direct access control and many of the buttons are reassignable. There are a couple of annoying quirks though. For one, initiating WiFi requires going into the menus, and you can't assign it to a control. The viewfinder has 100% coverage and is bright and comfortable to use. And the LCD tilts to 90 degrees either up or down. And thumbs up for dual SD card slots. The video and still quality are top notch as well. I found jpegs clean up to ISO 1600 and solid through ISO 32000. Depending upon the scene even ISO 12800 isn't out of the question. Video's sharp and clean with few artifacts up to ISO 32,000 as well. The camera's performance highlight is it's as tested 6.6 frame per second continuous shooting with auto focus for an unlimited number of jpegs. Though shooting raw supported a 15 shot buffer before slowing. Otherwise it's fast. But not faster than the other DSLRs in its class. The autofocus system works well and the new group AS comes in handy for panning or if you don't trust tracking autofocus. All of that adds up the D750 ranking as the best overall value in the price segment between 1800 and 3000. It's not cheap, but it delivers the best combination of performance, image quality and features for the money. I'm Lori Grunin and this is the Nikon D750. [MUSIC]
