Overview

Welcome to a new level of flexibility. The full-frame D780 packs a fast, dedicated Hybrid-AF system for Live View shooting, and a fast, reliable Phase-Detection AF system for viewfinder shooting. In Live View, the highly accurate AF system gives you 273 on-sensor AF points and Eye-Detection AF. When shooting through the viewfinder, you can harness Nikon’s powerful 51-point AF system with flagship tracking capabilities.

AF with viewfinder shooting

The 51-point Phase-Detection AF system is sensitive down to -3 EV and the bright optical viewfinder allows sharp, real-time confirmation of the action you frame. Track subjects at lightning speed, even in low light.

Always locked on

During viewfinder shooting, the 51-point AF system lets you adapt instantly with quick switching between advanced AF modes. Benefit from fast acquisition and stunning background isolation with Group-Area AF mode.

AF in Live View

When shooting in Live View, the 273-point Hybrid-AF system covers approx. 90 % of the frame horizontally and approx. 90 % vertically. The tilting monitor frees up the angles and offers touch shutter release and AF.

Sharp in any light

The 273-point Hybrid-AF system is sensitive down to -4 EV when shooting with a lens that has a maximum aperture of f/2 or wider. For really dark scenes, you can activate Low-Light AF and shoot down to -6 EV with AE.

Catch the look

When shooting stills in Live View, the whip-smart Hybrid-AF system with Eye-Detection AF can lock onto your subject’s eyes – and stay locked. Whether they’re alone or a face in a crowd. You select which eye to focus on via the multi-selector, and the camera maintains focus even if your subject is in constant motion.

Reveal those all-important seconds

Harness burst rates of up to 7 fps with AF/AE when shooting through the viewfinder. Get up to 12 fps when shooting in Silent Live View Photography mode. You get full resolution images, even when shooting in RAW.

Ultra-high-speed continuous shooting

Want to show the moves within the moves? Shoot in Live View and you can capture Full HD (2 MP) stills at up to 120 fps. Or you can capture 4K/UHD (8 MP) stills at up to 30 fps.

Never stop

With nothing slowing you down, you’re free to create as you please. Extensive weather sealing and the tough magnesium alloy body ensure the D780 is ready for any location. Dual slots accept fast UHS-II SD cards that easily handle the camera’s fast burst speeds and keep the buffer clear. The deep grip and long battery life make all the difference on extended shoots.

ADAPT

Key settings can be quickly adjusted via touch operation or the command dials. When shooting in manual focus, the camera’s electronic rangefinder helps confirm whether the selected focus point is in focus.

CONFIRM

The 0.70x optical viewfinder gives you a wide field of view and 100 % coverage. The large, tilting 2359k-dot LCD monitor lets you quickly confirm shots by double tapping to see a 100 % view of the image area.

REVIEW

The in-camera re-touch menu makes it easy to trim on the spot, and now lets you crop horizontally or vertically. You can delete unwanted shots from just one card slot, or from both cards simultaneously.

Nail any scene

Epic views. Extreme action. The back-illuminated 24.5 MP full-frame CMOS sensor and EXPEED 6 image processor offer wide dynamic range and clean performance across the ultra-wide ISO range. The same 180K-pixel RGB sensor and Advanced Scene Recognition system as the D850 delivers incredible precision.

Match your vision

Shooting in dramatic weather conditions or under bright city lights at night? Diverse metering and white balance modes free you to respond quickly to changes under natural light, or in high-contrast situations.

Bright light or low light

An ISO range of 100–51,200, extendable up to an incredible 204,800 and down to ISO 50, lets you adapt instantly to changing light. Achieve rich tones under bright sunlight. Reveal detail and nuance in low light.

Make anything possible

Shutter speeds from 1/8000 to 900 s give you more flexibility to play with time. Easily sync Nikon Speedlights (see accessories) at high speed for epic action shots. Or slow everything down for dramatic light trails and nightscapes.

Be free to do your best work yet

The D780 lets you work directly with the F-mount NIKKOR lenses you love, and is compatible with all Nikon Speedlights. Radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting is fully supported, freeing you to use the versatile SB-5000 flash unit. The camera’s high-speed data-transfer capabilities and wireless connectivity make it easy to get your images out there.

Film as the action demands it

The D780 uses its 6K image sensor resolution to produce ultra-high-resolution 4K/UHD footage at 30p/25p/24p with zero crop factor. You can record Full HD slow-motion footage in-camera at up to 120p, with audio. And you can record footage in DX format at 50p/60p frame rates. AF speed and AF tracking can be set during recording, and there are four AF-area modes for video.

N-LOG

Preserve up to 12 stops of dynamic range for more flexibility when editing and grading. Recording in N-Log at a high 10-bit depth lets you retrieve 4x more information than with a standard 8-bit recording.

HYBRID LOG GAMMA (HLG)

Remove the need for time-consuming colour grading in post. The D780 lets you use an external movie recorder (not included) to capture rich HLG HDR footage, which can be shown directly on a compatible TV or monitor.

TIMECODE OUTPUT

Record timecode in drop-frame or non-drop-frame formats, and output via 10-bit HDMI. Atomos Open Protocol is supported for synching the start/stop of HDMI recording via your external recorder. Or via the camera.

In-camera time-lapse

You can create spectacular 4K/UHD time-lapse movies in-camera. Exposure smoothing reduces variation between images, for seamless transitions. Silent interval-timer shooting counters mechanical blur and shutter noise. Low-light metering can be expanded to -6 EV in Low-Light AF, and shutter speed can be extended up to 900 s.

FOCUS STACKING

Create images with seemingly impossible depth of field using Focus Shift Shooting mode. You can determine the distance of each focus step, and a focus-peaking feature helps confirm focus at each layer.

PICTURE CONTROL

Nikon’s Picture Control system makes it easy to define parameters for stills or video. There’s a range of preset options or you can create custom controls for specific subjects and scenes.
