Nikon’s New D780 DSLR Accidentally Revealed by Internet Ahead of CES


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.

I love my D750, in fact more that either my D810 (which is excellent by the way) and my D850. Compact Versatility and awesome low light capability. Looking at the spec of the D780 I’m note sure, for me at least, that it would be worth an upgrade…

I also love my D750. It’s a good upgrade from the D600. I typically carry both in covering music (the 600 with a 24-70 lens and the 750 with a 70-200 lens). I went with the D750 instead of the D850 because the controls and menus were so close to the 600–that makes it easier when switching cameras and not having to think about different control formats. The D600 is long in the tooth and may be replaced by a D780.
