Nikon D750 Video Review:

Below is a review and sample footage of the D750. DigitalRev TV also gives a brief summary of the history of Nikon camera releases because it is quite confusing!

Video review highlights:

  • Seems to be hybrid of the D610 and the D810
  • Lightweight body
  • Can keep out some moisture and dust
  • First full frame DSLR with variangle screen
  • Wifi allows for remote control of the camera
  • Can shoot fairly well at very high ISO levels
  • You can change the aperture in live view! (Many Nikon cameras don’t allow aperture adjustments in live view)

The Nikon D750 is fully loaded with features we’ve been wanting for so long all in one camera, so if you’re ready to purchase or just want more information then please click the button below to support my site (affiliate link):
