Nikon D750: But why buy that camera in 2019?


So I guess the good question anyone would
ask if you told them that you bought a DSLR in 2018 would be: why would you go for a DSLR? Why wouldnt you go for a mirror less? And in my case the answer is very simple that
the price on the mirrorless or sorry on the DSLR has dropped so much that the value you
get from buying a DSLR is so much higher than it is for a mirrorless. Don’t get me wrong. I like mirrorless. I am shooting this on a mirrorless, thats
the Sony RX100, my Iphone is mirrorless. And mirrorless is great, it is compact, it
is silent so if you want to shoot exactly that picture when she says “I do” in the church
and all of that and it has to be completely silent of course mirrorless has an advantage
but I still think that a DSLR has its place in many other situations and of course you
have the disatvantage of moving parts so at some point in time your DSLR will need to
be repaired or refurbished because of the moving parts.And moving parts they break. It cannot be any different. They break down. So of course the mirrorless has an advantage. But I think that Tony Northrup taught me that
it is not a shame to buy things that are maybe not the latest and greatest technology and
the video I am shooting this with (the Sony RX100) is only the Mark III and not the Mark
IV. So you can save a lot of money by maybe not
buying the very latest technology. There it is. 1100 EUR – I maxed my credit card for this
one. But I still think this compared 2 or 4 years
ago, this is half the price! So it is fantastic value. And mind you that this piece of technology
stands on the shoulders of a long series of development where you’ve had people investing
– like me – in the e.g. D5600. Paying for for the R&D that has gone into
developing a model like this one. That is why I chose to continue to stay with
a DSLR. I still think it has a place in 2018. And don’t forget: the output it produces is
digital so it is not like it is paper based or something like that it is still digital. Then the next good question I guess is why
would you choose the D750 in the total lineup from Nikon? And why would you go for FX / full frame? I have been very happy with my APS-C or cropped
sensor camera and I have taken some great pictures with it and it will still be my camera
here as my backup camera and I really like it – I think it is a great camera. I think APS-C technology is great and I will
probably be shooting birds with this one still and maybe also planes and anything far away
moving fast. APS-C definately has a role to play there. But this one? Why whould I go for full frame? I have a lot of Nikon vintage lenses or classic
lenses or whatever you want to call them and they are all full frame or can fit a full
frame sensor. So why not? I might as well get the benefit from that… FX has a few advantages – I think they are
small though but they are there like better low light performance and all of that – you’ve
probably heard all the arguments. So that is why I wanted to go FX and also
I think going FX at some point in time when you have been a photographer for a little
while and you’ve been with the APS-C format you want to try something new or you maybe
read so much about the FX format that you think: I simply gotta try it! So you as a photographer grow and become better
and then you need to upgrade your gear so you sort of develop hand in hand. So I think it is a natural step for me to
dive into the FX world. So why did I then not go for a setup where
I have e.g. the D850 which is the Nikon top level camera (prosumer) and the answer to
that is that its simply outside my price bracket. I cannot what the prices are right here and
now but I checked it a while ago and the D850 is way more expensive than the D750. Then there is the D810. That’s the landscape photographers preferred
alternative and I shoot a lot of landscape but I also like to take different kind of
pictures like street photography, wildlife once in a while and in general all-round photography. The D810 could be – when I read reviews that
is the one (especially) landscape photographers prefer but as it is not the only type of photography
I do and it is seldom I need for a poster or a large print I think I can do fine with
just the 24mp sensor size. Also the fact that the D810 is 400 EUR more
than the D750 – again price became a strong argument for me… So, I went for the D750 here… The last one you could consider in the Nikon
lineup on the FX side is the D610. But I think this bad boy (D750) has inherited
a lot of good things from the Nikon D810 and maybe it is – subject to whom you consult
review wise – but the D750 has extremely good low light performance. It has a metering system from the D810 and
the auto focus the same. As the D750 basically has many of the features
that the D810 has I think the main drawback with the D750 is the lower resolution on the
sensor. But I don’t think that will be an issue for
me. I am used to the 24mp from the D5600. It is more than enough for me. 99% of the time my pictures are for my own
use or social media so that will not be an issue. So here it is! D750! Wow! It feels really good! My number one is picture quality – that is
why I pick a camera – that is my main reason. Maybe they are a little bit old the reviews
I have seen, but there are many who make the tilting screen a big thing. I have my entry level camera the D5600 and
that has a pivoting screen. So that is not the argument for why I bought
the D750. My arguments are that this is a camera with
many of the top level features from the D810. The D810 is probably – together with the D850
– some of the best camera bodies Nikon has ever made and this on has inherited a lot
of the features from the D810. So I think the only downside is the lower
resolution and that is not an issue for me. What convinced med that this should be my
camera? I’ve been sitting on the fence for quite some
time and you know that I ruined my D7500 – I got it right here just to compare. As you can see the bodies are roughly same
size and so on. The grip on the D750 is a bit deeper than
the D7500 – actually a lot deeper. They are both rather big and bulky bodies. I will say though that I will not miss button
in here on the D7500. They have moved them out here on the D750. Also I bitched about the “ears” on the D7500
that hurt my hand. That is gone on the D750. Feels really good. So ergonomics on the D750 are approved! Also, this one has the option for mounting
a battery grip – maybe I will try that. If you are a professional user the dual SD
card slot is a must. I think a lot of discussion on social media
about that. Not a biggie for me. I will probably only fill one of the two slots. What convinced me of this one? There were two videos… I’ve read a lot of reviews and this is a fantastic
camera end of story. Full stop. There were two videos and I will post links
to them top right corner. There were two videos where I thought – okay,
this is something extraordinary. One was a video with an australian wedding
photographer and he has bought no less than 4 of these cameras!! Both he and his partner needed a primary and
a backup camera. And their DS3 I belive it was, were running
out. So they decided to go for a new bodies. And he said that price in his case was a very
big factor and when you have to buy 4 then price becomes important even when professional
that can deduct it from tax and all that. If you listen tom him you will see a professional
that uses this camera as his main tool in what he does. The other was not as neutral as the wedding
photographer – because this video was partly sponsored by Nikon. But this is a video from the the Seattle Museum
of Flight where you see some of the video capabilities. Notice this camera only does 1080p video. The museum of flight where they do both video
and pictures in low light conditions. And I must say that was quite astonishing. Of corse it is biased because it is Nikon
that partly sponsors that video – so you need to subtract a little bit but that was another
very convincing video. So those two sort of brought me from being
in doubt to feeling sure that this was a very good choice. So what do I expect from the D750? A lens like this – it says very clearly here
DX – so of course that one will give vinetting if I try to use it on the full frame and of
course that is a big disatvantage. SoI can only use the FX lenses, and that means
that I have 3 or 4 lenses that I can only use on the APS-C and one of the lenses that
I will be missing very much is the Sigma 18-35mm – it was Tony Northrup who recommended this
lens and I must say that that was one of the best advices I have ever received regarding
photography. It is an absolutely amazing lens. If you have a DX camera and you are wondering
what is a good beginners lens, this one here is an absolute killer. The Sigma 18-35mm. Read the reviews! This is a top lens! I will be missing the ability to put that
on my now FX camera body but other than that I think I’ll be happy – looking forward to
using my FX camera. But of course there will be a limitation to
what lenses I can add to it. I think that my prime lense will be this classic
– the Nikkor 35-70mm 2.8D highly recommended by the angry photographer. Has autofocus. Those of you who have seen other videos from
me know that I bitch a lot about this – that you need to have an in camera auto focus motor
– and the D750 does, so I can mount this one. And then – as long as I am not in macro mode
– I can switch this one on. This is nice. The screen looks very much like the screen
from my D7500 although it is a little bit smaller I believe? Nahr, it is not much. And if I just… Just take it out of the automatic mode and
put it into aperture prirority. If I then just… the autofocus is working. But otherwise it looks very much like a Nikon
camera! Not much to report here. Okay! That is it from me! Hope you found this video useful! And that maybe I helped you decide what camera
you should go for? Maybe you have realised this is not the camera
for you? All good by me… But I think I will be happy with this camera
beacuse of its good ergonomics, it will take all my classic Nikkor lenses, it did not break
the bank, wasn’t cheap, but it did not break the bank! It has one of the best autofocus systems Nikon
has ever made – also the same with the metering system and it just is a very nice camera! And looking into the viewfinder, I was very
happy to see – those of you who have seen my video on the D7500 know that I was very
happy with the viewfinder on that camera – a big step up from the D5600. And it is the same here – the viewfinder is
absolutely fantastic! So I really look forward to start using this
camera. And I hope that I won’t drop this one in salt
water like i did with my D7500. Okay! Thank you for watching! As always: happy shooting! Take care! Bye bye!

    Was sorry to hear about your D7500 accident 🙁 Glad to see you've got yourself another Nikon body 🙂 hope you enjoy it and it lasts a long while!

  2. Bilibili Reefer November 10, 2018 at 2:51 pm

    keep watching your video all the time, current using d5500; consider d7500 recently, or the wait newer version of d500 or d7500 in coming two years;

  3. BFS November 12, 2018 at 6:36 am

    You can still use your DX lenses by switching to the Nikon D750's 10.7 MP DX mode.

    BTW, Higher MP cameras are good for cropping as well. Not everyone has the right long focal length lens for all situations. Plus cropping for composition, unless the photographer was Henri Cartier-Bresson.

  4. Amrit Gurung November 17, 2018 at 4:57 am

    i am planning to get this, this will be my first full frame.

  5. S Kanjilal November 19, 2018 at 7:47 am

    Me also planning to upgrade from my D3200 to D750, but little confused whether to go with Z6 or Sony A7iii, mirrorless or FF

  6. sid vicious November 19, 2018 at 4:16 pm

    You will be just fine with the D750 and you made a wise upgrade. I own the D500 for birding, wildlife, and sports. I own the D750 for weddings, due to its file size and a D810, which I got a great price on used and it is for Landscapes and Studio work under controlled lighting conditions. The D750 is the natural upgrade for you if you own APSC and looking to grow as a photographer, so enjoy it, it has been a wonderful camera for me. You have on the left side U1 and U2, which allows you to program certain settings. Before getting my D810, which I got in Jun of this year, I would use the U1 setting for my studio stuff and set my settings up for portraits and it was really quick as a baseline that I could adjust based on my lighting conditions. For weddings I would go to the church and reception hall and measure my light, I still use a light meter and I would set things up under U2, which also gave me a nice baseline to start from.

    You can also program the recording button to be your ISO button, like on the D500 and it's much quicker to change ISO. I also have my Depth of Field Preview button as my My Menu Button, which allows you to put the things that you use the most often and have quick access to them. The biggest difference between the D750 and D810 is the Mega Pixels, the ability to shoot at ISO 64 and small, med and large Raw File selection. The D750 has better ISO performance than the D810, it is better in low light and has greater dynamic range. The Difference between the D750 and the D500, outside of one being crop and one being APSC is the almost limitless buffer, which allows you to shoot at 10fps up to 200 frames and it will stop, take your finger off of the trigger for a second and you can shoot 200 more shots. This is great for birding or anything fast action. I also go to Airshows and if you have ever tried to photograph a Jet in flight, you will need everything that the D500 has. The D750 and D810 buffer fill up to fast for action with raw files.

    The D500 even beats the D850 in buffer capacity and is only second to the D5, it's father. The D500 has a better autofocus system than both the D750 and the D810, it's the D5 and D850 autofocus system but tweaked a little in the D850. Nikon tweaked the autofocus system in the D750, which is better than the D810, it's slightly faster. Good luck with your new D750 and don't believe some of the negative issues that Nikon had with it, I did have mine in for service for a different issue and Nikon authorized a new camera and I got it back in a week and I haven't had a problem since. I have had the D500 and D750 since they both came out and bought them brand new. I still shoot film as well and own a Nikon F4. Good luck with your camera, you will enjoy it and I still enjoy mine.

  7. Vadim Om November 20, 2018 at 6:29 am

    d7500 is a mistake, dead on arrival camera, d7200 is more logic choice. d750 on the other hand is probably the best value full frame, packed with features. Jack off all trades
    i recommend Tamron optics 24-70 and 70-200 f2.8, first version can be found on eBay. even first version of fast and sharp

  8. ker der November 23, 2018 at 2:30 pm

    Congratulations on fantastic buy… Hehehe d750 at this moment is the best ff camera for the $… Fully loaded if dynamic range is of great value u need to remember that all z d850 or Sony r always compared to d750 a plus it has flash with Master slave control others don't have flash… More to it happy shooting

  9. ker der November 23, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Buy Meike battery grip super value

  12. Alexander Rossa December 3, 2018 at 2:28 pm

    I plan on buying the D750 now because of its incredible value in the light of the recent Z series release. Will shoot with it until Nikon fleshes out its mirrorless system, perhaps by the 3rd gen of the Z mount. Then migrate over along with my newly acquired FX lenses!

  13. Clinton Davis December 9, 2018 at 11:38 pm

    All the same reasons that I decided to go for it – It’s a practical decision. It does what I need it to do, solving the low light issues that limited me in the past. I only upgrade after many years – last camera was D80. Before that F5. Loved the film days. I have a number of FX lenses. As you mentioned, … it’s about value for me. It is so easy to chase the technology. It solves my photographic problems. IQ is great for my purposes. Glad to have some company with this decision. Great deals on Black Friday!

  14. Dean Austin December 15, 2018 at 6:10 am

    All the questions I'm asking g myself. Brilliant video.

  15. Vladimir Remmirez December 19, 2018 at 5:36 am

    I recently purchased a Canon 550D DSLR for only 200, it's worth it. In public people treat you like you have a weapon, I love it 📷

  16. Vladimir Remmirez December 19, 2018 at 6:47 am

    After doing some research of Nikon d750,it does 24 mp but it goes for around $900 and up. In my opinion you should've bought the Panasonic Lumix g85 for three hundred bucks cheaper. Yes it's 16 mp but the auto focus is amazing and it can record 4k for more than 8 hours without it over heating with no recording limit, you just need extra battery packs. 🤔

  17. Krisna Cater December 20, 2018 at 4:48 pm

    I think nikon d750 still a good choice. I got one, and im happy with my d750

  18. Steven Newman December 21, 2018 at 6:26 am

    WIsh D750 had joystick control! Pair D750 sceond body with DX, a now low-priced D7200. A D750 with large 2.8 zoom is at my size and weight comfort limit. D7200 also good for use with my few AIS lenses and easier for all manual use and can wrap my hands around D7200 body and lens and keep eye on viewfinder.

  19. BadgerFarmGirl December 23, 2018 at 9:24 am

    #101 new supporter hope you return the support… I agreed with on the dslr… just bought the Canon 80d… value for the buck and it been proven.. at some point I will be moving to full frame.. well done!

  20. nerina d'istra December 23, 2018 at 7:33 pm

    it also has the best video capabilities of the nikon bunch as stated by DP Review (Seattle video you refer to was made by them); it was also stated in their last end-of-year 'best of' video that up until now it was his go-to camera. even Angry photographer says he films his videos on this camera. thanks, I think I will consider this seriously.

  21. Arian Tashakkor December 25, 2018 at 1:04 am

    I just upgraded from my D7200 to the D750 2 weeks ago just to step up my work and start actually working in the photography field and I can't be happier with my decision. I got the camera for an amazing price and I can easily say this is literally the best full frame camera you could afford currently considering the price-performance ratio. And I'm saying this by summing up the result of a 1 month reserch. I'm mainly focusing on portrait and street photography (I used to do a lot of landscape) and I already experience great results with this camera in terms of image quality and the dynamic range that it provides. You made a great decision. I wish you the best and great time with the camera. Btw don't forget to program the rec button for ISO. It's very handy. Anyways keep up the good work with your youtube channel! I woild appreciate it if you leave your instagram id in a comment below so I can drop you a follow.

  22. R Def December 25, 2018 at 2:55 am

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Nikon have 5 plus recalls on the d750?

  23. Lyfan Deth December 25, 2018 at 5:58 am

    Incredible value but a 45mp sensor or at least 36mp without anti-moire filter would be closer to what 35mm was, sharper if you are cropping images. No difference really if you never crop or blow up, still great at many things.

  24. Zvonimir Perić December 25, 2018 at 7:22 pm

    You can use your Sigma 18-35 on D750,cause it has a crop mode in it,I think 1,3 and 1,5 crop ,so you don't need to switch it on apsc…

  25. Mark Shirley December 25, 2018 at 7:33 pm

    Hi – I shoot stills and video professionally with a D750 it's a fantastic camera and worth every penny. It's so easy to use and the raw files surprise me still after over three years of using it. See Mattias Burling on the D750 video capabilities.

  26. A B D I A S December 25, 2018 at 8:56 pm

    I heard the 750 was recalled … am i wrong ? Is the problem solved ?

  27. William Blackwell December 25, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    I don't know who told you the D810 was just a landscape camera but they are way off base . At first i was worried about the 36mp being to much for my old computer because that was what everyone was saying,but that was a lie my old computer handled it just fine . The D750 has the same sensor as the D610 but the new image processor gives it better ISO capability than the D610 . The D750 has issues a lot more than the D600 ever had. You may not think you need 36MP but believe me once you see what can be done with them you will never want to go back. I have defiantly gotten spoiled with 36MP . Don't get me wrong the D750 is much better than any Canon or Sony for the price but the D810 is defiantly worth the extra money .

  28. JBulsara A December 26, 2018 at 9:23 am

    Awesome camera! Best value for the bucks. No compromise, best actual D-35mm. Stay away from the crowd. Heading to FX Station is probably the biggest update for every photographer. Love the combo: d750 & AFS 50mm 1.4D. and AiS28mm/2.8

  29. Sathia Joe December 26, 2018 at 12:22 pm

    I use my D750 for weddings and almost every type of shot. Very reliable .

    The only thing that is really going for the DSLR as I understand it is that they are very rugged and weather-resistant and it would be a really good choice for bad weather conditions/environment.

  31. michael s December 26, 2018 at 4:18 pm

    good choice..until someone pays for your gear,it's what works for you that matters..

  32. RobinMues Photography December 26, 2018 at 6:30 pm

    mirror problems & broken shutter (one week old) nice during a wedding !! @#lastnikon !!

  33. theGarinator December 26, 2018 at 9:06 pm

    Thanks for your analysis. I'm using a D7100 but my glass is all Nikkor (full frame) that I bought my Nikon film cameras with. (F90 N90x and my FM2n.) Was hoping someone would give a positive review for the older full frame DSLR's. I'd like to go full frame now that the prices are reasonable..

  34. Mike Lentsch December 26, 2018 at 10:49 pm

    haha you're nuts. The DSLR is now totally obsolete…. I've only shot mirrorless until I tried my cousin's nikon on Christmas eve. I found it to be unusable by comparison to mirrorless… you're shooting friggin' blind – it's crazy… and silly.

  35. Dennis Bloodnok Channel December 27, 2018 at 9:07 pm

    I bought my Nikon D750 in May 2016. It has my number one go-to camera ever since. I am very happy with the image quality for both stills and 1080p video.

    I don't see myself replacing this camera for many years.

  36. Eddy j December 27, 2018 at 10:00 pm

    the D700 and the D750 beasts of cameras..i have two D700

  37. James A Photography co uk December 29, 2018 at 12:28 am

    I've been smashing two D750's for years now and they are beasts for the depreciated price now. If I do move to mirrorless i will always keep them as back up.

  38. monsterfresh January 2, 2019 at 10:31 am

    One factor that helped determine my choice for the D750 over the 850, when comparing them side by side, was weight. I'll cover one music festival, in particular, almost yearly, which can find me carrying my camera around up to 14 hrs a day, often with a 70-200mm zoom attached,. That 850 is just way too damn heavy for my liking, while the 750 is nice and light. I liked the idea of it, but after picking it up, I could see it killing my wrist fast for the type of stuff that I need to shoot. I also don't feel like I need or want to deal with the amount of memory needed for the 45.7mp and, with the price I got the 750 for, I literally could have bought 2.5 of them, before ever hitting the price that the 850 is sitting at right now.

  39. Kusheen January 5, 2019 at 5:02 pm

    Why would anyone buy mirrorless system, are the images really that much better than a dslr?

  40. stevegiurlando January 8, 2019 at 2:14 am

    my D750 is being delivered tomorrow from B&H, thanks for reinforcing my purchase decision.

  41. Elvin Lewis January 8, 2019 at 1:38 pm

    Thank you! I came from exactly the same situation, and got the 7500 my now ex girlfriend. Have been completely on the fence about an upgrade. I'm really waiting on the 760. But I "might" get the 750 instead.

  42. splitterpoint January 8, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    You can put the 18-35 on FX but only at 35mm you'll get vignetting levels low enough to fully remove in post production; making it an extremely heavy and oversized 35mm on your D750.. although usable. The D750 is a fantastic camera, a true allrounder with a great autofocus system. I own one aswell.. no need for the D850's massive filesize as I don't do astro-photography or landscapes. They couldn't have made a more allround FX full of options than the D750. I sold my D7100 together with the 18-35 a while ago.. but boy I miss the versatility of the Sigma.

  43. 義経ゲンクロー January 10, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    "Why buy X camera in N year?" Is just a straight no. It's awful how advertisements and brands try their hardest to push people to get always the latest gear with the most overhyped tech around and even try to render some ONE YEAR old cameras as obsolete (not the case with the d750 though, you made a great and wise choice)

  44. ruffdraft January 14, 2019 at 3:09 pm

    The Nikon D750 and Canon 80D are both on my list.

  45. John Berry January 16, 2019 at 11:20 pm

    I lust for a D850 but like you it's out of my price range. With where the D750 is priced now it is extremely attractive as an alternative.

  46. Daniel Brooks January 17, 2019 at 12:32 am

    The D750 is a great all rounder and is still a great camera in 2019. For me the main gripe about the D750 is the ISO button, why does the screen have to turn on when you press it?

    But for me the best value Nikon at the moment is the D800, they can be picked up for as little as £500, for me is way too slow for the shooting that I do, however for most people it is the best pound for pound camera at the moment.

    I shoot the D750 professionally and love it. Just as with the D700, I'm not tempted by new bodies coming out because this camera does everything I need it to do. You'll love it!

    If you have budget constraints, like most people, why buy a D750 with video capabilities. As you don’t use video, get a well used D700 and you’re set.

    I also bought the D750 like six months ago, I upgraded from D3300 then is quite a jump for me though I love the D750 the quality is obvious a lot better, is another level… my dream camera is the D850.. I though about the D500 but D500 is still cropped sensor therefore not an option…

  50. Shawn Turnbull January 20, 2019 at 8:29 am

    just bought a Nikon D600 with 5k shutter with OEM grip.. Nikon 50mm 1.8D.. 3 OEM Nikon batteries.. and flash.. all for $630 US.. what a deal!

  51. Gibson Weasel January 20, 2019 at 4:31 pm

    My advice is that there is nothing wrong with older cameras, you don't need to rush out and buy the latest! you could by a D750 and a wonderful lens of your choice 🙂 I still use a D700 which is a great camera!

  52. Gibson Weasel January 20, 2019 at 4:46 pm

    You might come across some snob photographers! who will have the nerve to comment on your equipment? always ignore them 🙂 I even had some guy make a dig at me for using Nikon at an event?? he was an owner of some media company, he said all his staff use Canon?? I was like, whatever, go away 🙂 maybe I like using Nikon, maybe I have a collection of F mount Lenses! I have even had a situation where I was using a D7100 at an event!!! everyone preferred my photos over the guy who I think was using a D810!! he was doing a lot of quick point and clicks at everything all the time!! I like to pick my moments and not have a massive collection of photos that could create animation 🙂

  53. SuperLitherland January 20, 2019 at 11:29 pm

    i had d750s sold them for d850s hated that camera went back to d750

  54. Chris Quillen January 21, 2019 at 11:29 am

    Of course buy it. It’s a great camera.

  55. Jamo Imo January 22, 2019 at 6:11 pm

    You have made a solid investment for many years to come! You will be shocked at its low-light performance… Best bang for your bucks, hands down! Coming from a professional guy who uses full FX body, if it means anything… Enjoy

  56. A Google User January 23, 2019 at 8:10 pm

    It is painful watching you try to open a package.

  57. Art Pekarek January 24, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    I bought my D750 a year ago. It's the best camera you can buy for the value.

  58. Aditya Shingore January 24, 2019 at 10:28 pm

    I shoot events, landscape, cityscapes, streets n travel. Started with Nikon D5200 which started dragging me down with poor autofocus n lack of handy controls. God I missed so many great moments because it camera missed focus even on single point AF. So I decided to upgrade. For price I had to choose between D500 n D750. 750 is full frame and you get extra bokeh, low light performance n all is that bs. Its of no use if you don’t get focus in time for shot. 750 autofocus would be better than D5200 fosho. But D500 has the same AF as D5. Hands down best AF by Nikon. Landscapes don’t need most advanced focus system. But with any other type of work you do need that. Camera is a tool to capture moments. Easier it is to use better the results. I don’t see any good reason to upgrade to full frame just for the heck of it. I think D500 is the best option instead of 750. Just need faster glass for that bokeh n low light performance. Fast primes are best. Also, all my lenses are DX lenses. I will start collecting FX lenses which are super expensive compared to DX lenses. If find D500 is holding me back, I will switch to full frame. Its been a year I chose not to buy 750 and never regretted my decision when I see almost 100% shots in focus from a shoot without spending thousands upgrading lenses as well. Just get over the whole full frame bandwagon. It’s just slightly better in my opinion. Why not go medium format then? Even better right?

  59. Fadi Hindi January 25, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    Which one do you prefer: Nikon D750 or Canon 7D Mark II?

  60. Fadi Hindi January 25, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    I'm confused between this one, EOS 7D II and Sony A7II mirrorless

  61. John H January 26, 2019 at 7:35 pm

    I still use my Sony RX100 — gen 1 — works wonderfully for video. I have a D600 — works perfectly well. Still have a Fuji X-E1 — excellent camera and does great.

  62. julius turner January 26, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    I just bought Nikon d7200 and 200-500mm for wildlife/birds and I love that combo 🙂

  63. petronics2454 January 27, 2019 at 2:50 am

    Every contribution to "You Tube makers"; like yourself, is truly valuable and so thank you so much for your time and efforts. I'm adding to my rid – presently with a D5300 and a Sigma DC 18-250mm Macro (macros a fabulous, would you believe in this combo) AF and Stabilisation works a treat as well: I was so well advised by my camera store. I am so satisfied with the body but I want to upgrade the lens to an f1.8 16-24mm ( correct me on specs!!!) and a genuine Nikon (Nikko) which I'm so excited about. Now we are talking $AUD1100. My question is what body would you Dear Sir; migrate to from here.. ???

  64. tuan azhan January 28, 2019 at 5:04 am

    just got D800 last 3 week ago. 2nd hand body with 1.8k SC. 98% like new. Does D750 is better than D800..?

  65. Ryon Atkinson February 2, 2019 at 8:13 am

    You should see the price now

  66. Z Tiling February 5, 2019 at 6:54 am

    Very good camera I have one of that,

  67. Mr. 1000 CC February 11, 2019 at 1:49 am

    You make several valid points.

  68. 7terrago7 February 14, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    1100€? Where??

  69. NinjaworldProd February 20, 2019 at 10:04 am

    The 750 is a great camera but for video focus is a tad slow

    you almost sound like Ahhnold Schwartzgenator

  72. Yi Qi Ma March 22, 2019 at 11:55 pm

    I am a novice to photography. I bought a D750 body with a 24-120 f4 kit lens in 2017. I shoot portrait and landscape for fun. D750 with the kit lens work well in those settings. In addition, there are many informative videos about D750 for example how to customize the buttons of your D750. Good camera, still love it and shoot with it.

  73. Five_star_ Images March 24, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    I luv my d750. Great in low light. And works for my purpose.

  74. somebody301 March 24, 2019 at 5:45 pm

    That's exactly my line about DSLR cameras : price are dropped, you get more value and more lenses than mirrorless cameras. I don't care about the machine or the tech involved as long as the output statisfy me.

  75. jst1moor March 25, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    Make sure you leave a great review for the seller on the packing job that was done.

  76. Jim Appleton March 27, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    and the next good question. Why oh why would anyone want to see the opening of a parcel for 8:07 minutes….

  77. ynnot65 April 10, 2019 at 1:56 pm

    Hmmmm. Indpakning ser noget brugt ud. Mit så ikke sådan ud, da jeg pakkede det ud.

  78. 丹尼先生 April 14, 2019 at 5:03 pm

    I am a pro drama photographer and glad that you have choose D750, it is a very good low light camera and I am still using it over other DSLRs

  79. michelthebassplayer May 2, 2019 at 2:47 am

    I know that your video is few months old but I hope by now you have checked out how your Sigma wide zoom 18-35 that you say you love will fit perfectly on your D750 and give you the real field of view of 18mm to 35mm not a crop version of 27mm – 52.5mm like it does on your crop camera. I use my beloved DX 12-24mm Nikkor wide zoom on my full frame bodies and between 18mm-24mm there is no vignetting at all (from 12-16mm yes) so what it gives me is extra coverage in my wide angle that my 28-70 didn't give me and of course I can still use it on my D500 but of course on that body it then gives me that 18mm-36mm field of view compared to Full Frame.

  80. Jas Hoo May 5, 2019 at 9:23 am

    I'm watching a d750 review in 2019 because it's camera shopping time! At its current price (new or used), D750 competes with more 'modern' 2017/2018/2019 mirrorless cameras (Olympus EM1 MK2, Lumix G9, Fujifilm XT3, XH1, Sony A7ii/rii, Canon M5/M50) and Canon entry level full frame 6D (with 24-105mm) or 6D MK2 (with budget left for only a nifty fifty). 

    Contrary to many reviewers/photographers' over-emphasis on video spec, high ISO, high DR, pixel count, etc, I actually just want a good, reliable, easy to use/handle (not too big such that I won't carry with me, and not too small until I can only hold with 3 fingers), still photography camera with good image quality VISIBLE on electronic media. 

    As such, it seems that Canon 6D Mark 1 may look dated with only one capable center AF point, while Mark 2 doesn't have noticeable upgrade (if I ignore video friendly features like Dual-Pixel AF, tilt screen, etc). Canon and Nikon full frame mirrorless offerings are out of my budget.

    Have you considered those mirrorless cameras mentioned above in the same price point as your D750 for stills? And how do you choose D750 over them? Is it because you just want a FF DSLR for different handling experience?

  81. Aljoša Kozlov May 13, 2019 at 7:51 am

    @New2Photography Thank you for great video… I am also interested in D750, currently I am using D5500. The prices, in my country (EU), for new D750 body, cheapest price is around 1.200EUR. For comparision, the cheapest price for D810 body is around 2.110EUR, and D850 body is around 2.540EUR. If I decide to buy D750, I have to buy lens for it too, so the cost for transferring from my D5500 APS-C to full frame D750, would be rather high. But I think the D750 is great camera…among other things, U1 and U2 settings, very nice, very handy. Thank you for this video!

  82. Tom MacBride May 20, 2019 at 11:58 pm

    Today 1,200 US, what a buy! Like your thinking….Cheers!

  83. Nestor Fernández May 23, 2019 at 5:04 pm

    Epic moment – my iPhone is mirrorless- tug life 🤣

  84. Snapper Photography Event May 26, 2019 at 9:39 am

    i just buy one today with tokina 100mm macro

  85. Simon Vida June 4, 2019 at 11:09 am

    I just upgraded from my 10 years old Nikon D90 to D750. I think D90 is still great camera will use it as 2nd body.
    In this years I learned a lot and also invested in good qauality lens instead changing body.

  86. A B D I A S June 23, 2019 at 8:44 am

    Help! So I was about to buy a D750! But didn’t bc it said in the product info that has 1x optical zoom. What does it mean? Is it like that on all D750?

  87. Jay Marasigan July 1, 2019 at 4:26 pm

    I have a D7500 too, is worth the upgrade to go 750 for tight budget? Or should I go Sony A7II?

  88. Patrik Gårdewall July 6, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    The picture quality and dynamic range this camera gets in the photos are amazing!
    No Full frame Canon comes close yet to the dynamic range that the Nikons have.
    So when you have ruled out the low dynamic range Canons i think the D750 is the best bang for the buck right now along the Nikons.

  89. Sammy Tolomeo July 17, 2019 at 2:57 am

    Can you please stop talking and open that package quickly ?

  90. flimbosquest July 21, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    Congratulations!! Great camera choice 🙂

  91. Nick Costopoulos July 29, 2019 at 10:00 am

    does it have touch screen

  92. Certo Glenn August 11, 2019 at 1:30 am

    I had my D750 out of its boxes and packaging, battery installed and lens mounted in about one minute. Another three or four minutes for date, time, file naming, copyright and card formatting. After that, the mirror was flopping up and down. I put the strap on later.

  93. Samuel b September 5, 2019 at 12:36 pm

    You sound like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

  94. Al Carrigan September 22, 2019 at 9:04 pm

    Thanks for this review. I’ve been shooting since the early 70’s, pro and semipro, now just as an enthusiast. I’m heavily invested in Nikkor glass and there is no way for me to buy new glass, especially with all the lenses I have. I’ve looked at the d750 for a long time and all you said brings me closer to this camera as a solution to my need of staying with Nikon. My love of my old FM2 has never wained and I’ll still shoot film but for filling the need of digital it looks like this is a great solution with little sacrifice. Thanks again!
