Japanese camera maker Nikon has just launched its latest DSLR camera, the Nikon D780 at CES 2020. The new Nikon D780 full-frame DSLR camera is the successor to the Nikon D750. This new camera comes with a number of significant upgrades and improvements over the current Nikon DSLR lineup in the market. Nikon also claims that the camera will bridge the game between its traditional DSLR and the newer mirror-less, Nikon Z-lineup. As part of the launch, the company has revealed specifications about the new camera along with the pricing, and availability.
Nikon D780 specifications
Talking about the specifications of the latest camera, the Nikon D780 is a full-frame camera with a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor. It offers the usual 24.5-megapixel resolution with better dynamic range, quality, and color reproduction. The camera is powered by the latest Expeed 6 image processor; the same processor that powers the Nikon Z7 and Z6. The processor allows for improved low-light performance along with 4K UHD video and improved image clarity. D780 also features an ISO range of up to 51,200 that can be extended to 204,800. It also offers shutter speeds of up to 1/8000 of a second or up to 900 seconds. One can also get up to 7 frames per second while shooting.

In addition, D780 is also the first Nikon DSLR to feature eye detection autofocus along with real-time tracking.

In addition, D780 will also offer 10-bit video output or HDR output for improved post-production.
