Everybody’s kind of expected the new Nikon D780 DSLR camera but many of us thought it wasn’t going to be revealed in any real way until CES.
That changed last week as pics of the new model were unleashed on the Internet ahead of schedule, giving everyone a chance to weigh in on Nikon’s latest effort.
Coming with a 24MP BSI CMOS sensor, the D780 promises improved better capabilities in low-light conditions as well as 4K/30p video recording.
You’ve also got two USH-II SD, an improved image sensor, and the requisite wireless capabilities via WiFi and Bluetooth.
A few things that people are noticing mainly have to do with the incremental changes that Nikon seems to have introduced with this model compared with the D500 and D750.
ISO selection, for example, has migrated to behind the shutter button on the top of the camera. Meanwhile, the AE-L/AF-L button has continued moving down and the AF-ON button is located just above it.
As for how these pictures got it, mums the word on that though longtime reliable source Nikon Rumors was the first to break the story.
