Starting with the Nikon D780, the company claims that the new DSLR is a ‘big leap’ over its predecessor, and comes with features like on-sensor phase detection autofocus (PDAF), 4K video capture with full-pixel readout, as well as face and eye detection. The Nikon D80 is an FX-format full-frame DSLR that features a 24.5MP BSI CMOS sensor, and it is powered by the company’s Expeed 6 image-processing tech.

The camera’s ISO range can shoot up to 51,200 natively and is expandable to 2,04,800. Furthermore, the camera can provide for 7fps burst shooting and a shutter speed range of 900s to 1/8000 of a second. The DSLR provides for a 51-point autofocus (AF) system with 15 cross-type AF points when making use of the optical viewfinder. On the other hand, when a person is shooting in live view, the Nikon D780 makes use of 273 PDAF points inherited from the Z6 mirrorless camera for accurate focusing and minimal time lag. “The Nikon D780 is not only a huge leap in technology over the D750, but it also integrates Nikon’s latest cutting-edge technologies to offer the best video feature-set and imaging capabilities in a full-frame DSLR,” says Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President, Nikon.

Other features of the DSLR include 4K videos shooting at 30fps (without pixel binning), a 3.2-inches tilting LCD display (touch), in-camera battery charging, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth support, and a USB Type-C charging port.

Coming to the price of the camera, the Nikon D780 DSLR is kept at an asking price of $2,300 which roughly translates to somewhere around Rs 1,65,400. If in case you want to add the newly unveiled AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR lens to it, the same setup would cost you $2,899 (or around Rs 2,01,000).
