The Nikon D780 is the successor of the D750, which was widely regarded as one of the most capable DSLR cameras in the history of the industry. It is still constructed around a 24-megapixel sensor and a 51-point autofocus system, but the more you dive into it, the more you realize that it is a far more powerful machine: a DSLR that has learned a lot from mirrorless cameras.
Many elements of the camera’s behavior, including autofocus, video performance, and interval shooting, have been greatly enhanced, bringing a lot of the Z6’s capabilities to Nikon’s venerable F-mount. These improvements were made possible by Nikon’s commitment to continuous improvement.
