One DSLR, two AF systems
Welcome to a new level of flexibility. The full-frame Nikon D780 packs a fast, dedicated Hybrid-AF system for Live View shooting, and a fast, reliable Phase-Detection AF system for viewfinder shooting. In Live View, the highly accurate AF system gives you 273 on-sensor AF points and Eye-Detection AF. When shooting through the viewfinder, you can harness Nikon’s powerful 51-point AF system with flagship tracking capabilities.
AF with viewfinder shooting
The 51-point Phase-Detection AF system is sensitive down to -3 EV and the bright optical viewfinder allows sharp, real-time confirmation of the action you frame. Track subjects at lightning speed, even in low light.
Always locked on
During viewfinder shooting, the 51-point AF system lets you adapt instantly with quick switching between advanced AF modes. Benefit from fast acquisition and stunning background isolation with Group-Area AF mode.
AF in Live View
When shooting in Live View, the 273-point Hybrid-AF system covers approx. 90 % of the frame horizontally and approx. 90 % vertically. The tilting monitor frees up the angles and offers touch shutter release and AF.
Sharp in any light
The 273-point Hybrid-AF system is sensitive down to -5 EV when shooting with a lens that has a maximum aperture of f/1.4 or wider. For really dark scenes, you can activate Low-Light AF and shoot down to -7 EV with AE.
Catch the look
When shooting stills in Live View, the whip-smart Hybrid-AF system with Eye-Detection AF can lock onto your subject’s eyes—and stay locked. Whether they’re alone or a face in a crowd. You select which eye to focus on via the multi-selector, and the camera maintains focus even if your subject is in constant motion.
Reveal those all-important seconds
Harness burst rates of up to 7 fps with AF/AE when shooting through the viewfinder. Get up to 12 fps when shooting in Silent Live View Photography mode. You get full resolution images, even when shooting in RAW.
High-Speed Frame Capture
Want to show the moves within the moves? Shoot in Live View and you can capture Full HD (2 MP) stills at up to 120 fps. Or you can capture 4K/UHD (8 MP) stills at up to 30 fps.
With nothing slowing you down, you’re free to create as you please. Extensive weather sealing and the tough magnesium alloy body ensure the Nikon D780 is ready for any location. Dual slots accept fast UHS-II SD cards that easily handle the camera’s fast burst speeds and keep the buffer clear. The deep grip and long battery life make all the difference on extended shoots.
Nail any scene
Epic views. Extreme action. The back-illuminated 24.5 MP full-frame CMOS sensor and EXPEED 6 image processor offer wide dynamic range and clean performance across the ultra-wide ISO range. The same 180K-pixel RGB sensor and Advanced Scene Recognition system as the D850 delivers incredible precision.
