Nikon D780 DSLR Camera Body specifications

Flagship tracking performance is provided through the viewfinder, which also enables quick switching between the advanced AF modes. The blazingly quick shutter speed of 1/8000 also gives speed light users the ability to sync with Nikon flashguns capturing motion travelling at virtually any speed. 

New modes allow in-camera time lapse with 2MP stills at a blazing 120 fps with an in-camera digitising menu for creative captures. The camera's high-speed data-transfer capabilities and wireless connectivity make it easy to share images. SnapBridge lets users share JPEGs and RAW files with any smart device for quick editing and posting. 

Robert Harmon, Senior Commercial Planning Manager, Nikon UK, says: “Many photographers love DSLR, and they've been waiting for a model like the D780. If you're a DSLR lover, and you want to shoot movies as well as stills, this is the perfect solution. If you want to explore mirrorless, we have the Z system for that too! Whichever system excites image makers, we're thrilled to offer the versatility that lets them create without limits."
