Nikon announced several cameras at CES 2020. They include the Nikon D780 DSLR, AF-S NIKKOR 120 300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR Lens, NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 Lens and COOLPIX P950 Camera. This is a stunning showing at CES 2020 and a wide range of photographers will be able to find something to like in this release.
DSLRs are far from dead, and the release of the D780 shows it. This is a solid mid-range full-frame offering with a 24.5MP CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 6 image processor. Sensitivity ranges of ISO 100-51200 and an extended range of ISO 50-204800 make it a versatile pick while a 180k-pixel RGB sensor with Advanced Scene Recognition make shooting a more pleasant experience.
The system also offers two AF systems, depending on whether you use the optical finder or live view. The optical system features a 51-point phase-detect AF system sensitive depending on whether you use the optical finder or live view. The optical system features a 51-point phase-detect AF system sensitive to -3 EV and advanced tracking.
In live view, the D780 uses a 278-point hybrid setup with a standard sensitivity of -4 EV and a Low-Light AF mode capable of working down to -6 EV. It also supports Eye AF. To go along with a speed AF system, the camera can reach continuous shooting rates of 7 fps with the mechanical shutter, or 12 fps when using electronic.
Completing the D780’s package is a well-designed body with a familiar, reliable form factor. It features a 0.70x optical viewfinder with 100% coverage and 2.36M-dot tilting touching. And, for video aficionados, the D780 has UHD 4K at up to 30 fps with N-Log and HLG profiles. Other features include time-lapse video, 2MP stills at up to 120 fps, and built-in wireless connectivity.
