NIKON D750 REVIEW

MY NIKON D750!

Being a blogger, I find it very very important to have a camera that makes high quality photo’s. After doing a LOT of research, I decided that the Nikon D750 would be the perfect fit for me. The Nikon D750 is a 24 megapixel full frame pro-sumer camera that offers an incredible amount of creative options. I specifically chose this camera because of the many options it offers – like it’s film-option, built-in WiFi, a dual SD card slot, spectacular full-frame precision and a big full-frame sensor. I think it is an excellent mid-range, general purpose camera that many photographers would appreciate.

Wi-Fi connectivity and compatibility

One of the reasons why I fell in love with this camera is the fact that is has built-in WiFi, which allows control of the camera via Nikon’s WMU application (Android, iOS), and which also allows transfer of JPEG images to my phone via the Nikon App. If you want, you can even enable password protection against others trying to get in your network connection.

Nikon D750 Autofocus

The autofocus is outstanding. The D750 finds it quickly, allowing me to capture sharp, in-focus images 99% of the time. It also allows for continuous AF tracking on a 3D plane, meaning it will track a subject as they adjust their depth to you. It works great for me during shoots when i’m walking on the streets and we’re only trying to focus on my movements. As you could imagine, it’s a blogger’s dream come true.

The full-frame sensor recovers shadows like a dream. It has great dynamic range and good color rendering. We can easily shoot at high ISO’s and not experience distracting noise. The sensor allows you to save some photos where you didn’t have time to properly expose a scene.

Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8E VR lens

But what’s a camera without a lens? That’s like wearing an amazing outfit, but without the perfect shoes. I decided to invest in the Nikon 24-70 mm f/2.8E If you want the sharpest possible 24-70 lens, read no further; this is it. This lens uses an electronic diaphragm, and therefore is only fully compatible with cameras introduced since about 2007. Its new Vibration Reduction (VR) system lets me shoot at 1/2 to 1/4 second hand-held and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations without sacrificing sharpness. It’s magnificent!I chose this lens, purely because I preferred an all-in-one lens and carrying around multiple lenses just isn’t practical. Ok I must admit, the only disadvantage is that this lens is heavy (1 kg) and big (15,4 cm long and a filter size of 82mm).  I’m thinking about buying a smaller lens for our vacations and trips. The lens I have right now is simply too heavy carry around all day, especially when we’re on vacation and taking pictures all the time.
