Popular Photography has declared the Nikon D750 Camera of the Year for 2014. It came out ahead of a number of amazing cameras and even outperformed the mightier professional series cameras from Nikon and Canon.
The Nikon D750 is targeted towards semi-professional to professional photographers. It is an attractive body for those looking for an affordable full-frame DSLR. Us Canon users have less options in this tier. The Canon 5D Mark III is pricey. Their budget full-frame, the Canon 6D, is a bargain. However, it is also a compromise in quite a few areas. The D750 on the other hand, falls nicely between the two and beats both in most areas.
The D750 has an impressive 6.5 frames per second burst rate and a maximum ISO of 51,200. Its 24 megapixel CMOS sensor captures more information than all but a handful of DSLRs. And the flip LCD screen is really useful when shooting at weird angles or for video.
It also shoots full-HD 1080p video at 60 frames per second. It scores 93.0 for DXO image quality, higher than all but some of the really expensive bodies. This is definitely a keeper for those looking to upgrade from earlier models.
In case Nikon isn’t your cup of tea, you can also consider the runners up. The Lumix GH4 and the Fujifilm X-T1. We won’t go into the details here, but do check them out.
