    Yes. See page 57 in your manual. You want to enable AF-F mode, full time servo AF.

    The manual is that little book thingy that fell out of the box as you removed the camera...

    @kostas999 - Welcome to NRF and congrats on the d750.

    Strongly recommend that you sit down and read the entire manual with your D750 nearby. It's loaded with information and tips.

    Indeed, GP always has some interesting views on cameras, thanks to his sports usage vs. typical reviews which seem to be wedding focused.
    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    I like watching GP review vids as he is more interested in usage and overall image.
    It will be good to see the other video he mentioned when he compares the 750 to the 610 and 810.

    Nasim @ Photographylife Review of the D750. 5 out-of 5 stars.

    Nikon D750 ISO Comparisons. "the D750 proved to be overall the best Nikon DSLR in terms of noise handling at high ISOs. It outperformed pretty much every DSLR, including the Nikon Df!"

    Well done Nikon!!!

    Well this presents a problem ... I didn't think my wife would really notice if all of a sudden the D800 on my camera changed to a D810. But I'm sure she'd notice the D800 suddenly changing to D750 and a slightly smaller body. Thanks Nikon, I just might have to get this camera into my arsenal somehow.

    Thanks for these. I have not gotten around to reading all of the review yet but the iso comparison would seems right. My boss who has a D4 is amazed at how clean the images I have taken at iso levels over 6400. He is very much considering getting one for himself now especially as it has built in wifi which he could see would be useful for posting a few pics strait to social media in the field.

    @Golf007sd - thank you for the references. I had already read Nasim's review but the others had not been posted. I changed my equipment line over a week ago and this pretty well solidifies my decision.

    I'm far from an expert in the dark arts of noise reduction in LR but this is a quick snap I just took at 25600 ISO in a deceptively dark and gloomy pub.

    Yeah, that looks pretty good to me Postman. 25,600 is awfully high and those results are very impressive. Way above what my D700 would ever be able to deliver as that looks a lot like my D700's 6400 image.
  • ElvisheferElvishefer Posts: 329Member
    I was thinking the same thing. 25600 ISO seems to have come a long way.
    D700, 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII, 24-70mm f/2.8, 14-24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4G, 200mm f/4 Micro, 105mm f/2.8 VRII Micro, 35mm f/1.8, 2xSB900, 1xSB910, R1C1, RRS Support...

    ... And no time to use them.
  • BrainBeatBrainBeat Posts: 54Member
    Agreed H1 or maybe even H2 look as good as my D7100 at 6400 which is a very nice jump in what is usable. This also means all the levels below that which I had been using before are so much better too.

    @Postman: Thanks for the feedback. They performance of the D750 is very impressive. What lens did you have mounted on it?

    But I'm sure she'd notice the D800 suddenly changing to D750 and a slightly smaller body.
    It's smaller and has a lower number in its name, so tell her it's just an old one you've owned all the time, but never really used.
    Now, use the D750 for a couple of months before you start also using your D810 ... which you will buy in the meantime. By then, she won't notice it's not the D800 that she's familiar to.
    Result: You get both D750 and D810. Plus: Your wife will be happy to see you being responsible, using an "old" camera, as it's not just wasted money.

    @Sports your good. Mmmm that may just work. I did just buy her an iphone6 for her birthday.

    Check out the DxO values on the main blog. The D750 got a 93 overall ranking and the D610 was rated at 94. I will take the improved spacing of the the AF points, 51 points over 39, and the better low light sensitivity over the D610 any time. IMHO for these three advantages and the improved ergonomics of the D750 justifies the higher cost.

    What are your comments on the DXO values?

    Ratings are not so exact that 3 or 4 points would make a significant difference. Like political polls "too close to call." Consider the D800e vs. the D810; one point difference. Would you "upgrade" for one point? Of course not, but if you are a wedding photographer using a D800e you might want a D810 for the quieter shutter.

    I ran the math on the DXO "Sports/Low Light" rating and came to the same conclusion that DXO states: " A difference in low-light ISO of 25% represents 1/3 EV and is only slightly noticeable."

    The difference in the ratings for D810 and the D750 is only 3%, and the difference between the D750 and the Df is only 10%. There is not 1/3 stop difference over the whole product range. My calculations show slightly less than 1/5 stop difference between the Df and the D810.

    So, there is some anecdotal evidence that the Df outperforms the D750 in low light, and the D750 outperforms the D810 in low light, but I'm not sure it is due to sensor sensitivity rather than some other factor.

    There is, however, a third of a stop improvement over the 5D mark III compared to the Nikon offerings.

    I remember reading a comment that Expeed 4 and new software allow the handling of different parts of the photo separately. Thus, in producing a jpg an area which is dark and uniform can be separated from the rest of the image and treated to more noise reduction. Since we look first at dark areas and uniform color areas for noise, we may have the impression of a full f-stop improvement in jpgs when, in fact, the sensor is producing only 1/3 of a stop difference and the new processing of the image is producing the other 2/3rds of a stop. Such a thing could help explain why what we seen when looking at the jpgs from two cameras seems to be so much better performance at high ISO than the sensor ratings measure.

    Aha! One of the shortcomings of DXO mark is they don't take this type of data processing into account. Their Sports/Low Light ISO is just the ISO at which the S/N is 30 db, corresponding to a dynamic range of about 9EVs.

    The DXO review states the D750 has a 2/3 stop improvement in image quality over the Canon offerings, and 1/3 a stop (negligible) behind the 810. For the price, the D750 seems like a winner.

    No plans to buy one though: I've got too many camera bodies, pocket knives and mandolins around here.
