What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Nikon D750
  • Good size for a Full frame camera. Also one of the best still cameras you can buy.
  • I like the size, weight, feel, comfort, quality and just about everything else in this camera.
  • Light, fast fps, good size buffer, good ISO, double SD cards, Wi-Fi, tilt screen, and amazing autofocus.
  • The camera itself tis light weight, takes beautiful pictures, focusses very well and the low light functionality is superb!
  • The D750 is a very small full-frame DSLR but it's still a big, heavy camera by any other standard.
Nikon D850 FX-Format Digital SLR Camera Body
  • Super well designed, comfortable, if not a tad on the heavy side. It's a beast of a camera though, so I can absolutely forgive the weight, and it's by no means uncomfortably heavy.
  • The body is just about the same size as the D810 and the weight seems similar in my hand.
  • With respect to size, I did get a chance to shoot it side by side with my friends D810. The D850 did sit better in the hand than the D810. The D850 felt a bit heavier, but more comfortable to hold.
  • This camera is heavy. Its the first Nikon I have owned where it has felt heavy in my hands.
  • The d850 is a little heavy, but out shines any camera I have ever owned.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Nikon D750
  • The freedom to go to ISO 3200, even 6400 and get clean images is amazing.
  • I benefit mainly from exposing a high contrast scene to avoid clipping the highlights and then bringing up the shadows - effectively having the shadows at higher ISO.
  • The lack of noise is apparent in pictures shot at ISO 5000 and is less than that at 800 with the D7000.
  • This is a fantastic camera, light but feels substantial and has excellent IQ and high ISO performance.
  • The focus, low light, speed, everything about this camera is just amazing. I'm amazed at the low-light quality quality.
Nikon D850 FX-Format Digital SLR Camera Body
  • If you know anything about the D850, you'll know that the autofocus in the body is industry leading.
  • A huge number of autofocus points, incredible focus speed, it's absolutely incredible.
  • This camera is a beast. It's got a whopping 45.7 megapixels. This was a major upgrade for me, coming from the 24.1 megapixels in my D5200.
  • It has great low-light capabilities, and the autofocus works surprisingly well even in low light.
  • The low light performance isn't great and as a whole... it lacks the finer points of higher end cameras.

What customers say about "Display"
Nikon D750
  • Viewfinder also has a big rubber guard and a diopter knob; it’s easy enough to use with my eyeglasses.
  • The articulating back display is a real plus. I was able to rotate the display up and using live view, get down low right within inches of the surface of a lake to get some great pictures.
  • The tilting LCD display is very handy. It locks into place firmly, so doesn't appear to be particularly vulnerable in normal use.
  • I had to purchase a separate protective screen for the LCD back display. This should have came with the unit in my opinion.
  • Touch screen, this is very important not for the menus only but for touch to focus. But unfortunately this is not a touch screen.
Nikon D850 FX-Format Digital SLR Camera Body
  • I was skeptical that I would ever use the touchscreen aspect of the screen but I must say I was wrong. I use it very often. The screen itself is large, bright, and great resolution.
  • You can pinch to zoom on your pictures and zoom in to see some incredible detail this camera takes.
  • Screen tilts up and down, a really handy feature that I forget about too often.
  • I especially love picking focus points on the rear touch screen -- so much easier than doing so using the buttons on the camera.
  • That rear screen. It is so clear and bright it pushes me to make more use of Live View, And about time Nikon offered a tilt screen.

What customers say about "Features"
Nikon D750
  • ISO control can now be driven from the top plate (about time Nikon) and the auto ISO feature is excellent.
  • Auto white balance works surprisingly well. Skin tones look nice and so does everything else.
  • The controls are easy to manage and the shutter is quiet and smooth.
  • I use fill in flash and i've uncovered an issue with this camera where on auto white balance the camera will switch to the 'flash white balance' setting which causes yellow skin tones.
  • The shutter is a bit loud and the quiet mode isn't really any quieter but I have a couple of Fuji camera for when I need to be silent.

  • The weatherproofing is excellent. You can watch tons of review videos where you'll see them leaving the camera on a tripod in rainy weather to do a timelapse, and then they simply dry it off with a towel later.
  • Having come from the D5200 I feel like the controls are much more intuitive and better placed so as to be more ergonomic.
  • As a person who loves to do astrophotography, one of my favorite tiny improvements is the illuminated buttons! I don't know how I survived without that before this.
  • The ergonomics -- a lot of people have commented on the deeper hand grip. A real positive for handheld.
  • The Fn buttons are useful for setting quick commands (note, if you don’t see an option, scroll down…there are pages and pages of options for each button!) This is very nice!

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Nikon D750
  • Wi-Fi feature really useful and fun, you can connect your smartphone to your camera and share the photos with your friends, also you can control the camera from the app.
  • D750 can also output uncompressed footage via an HDMI connection to allow high-quality recording to an external device.
  • Wifi connects to your phone and allows you to use as a shutter release, you can even change the zoom.
  • WIFI is limited to Nikon remote apps on smart devices only so isn't what your really think. If you want true WIFI connectivity you still needs to get an adapter.
  • The built in Wifi operation seems flaky. It would constantly time out on me and lose connection with my IPhone. Hopefully this can be corrected with a future firmware update.
Nikon D850 FX-Format Digital SLR Camera Body
  • Buy the high speed SD cards. They are crazy expensive, but they will fit directly into most computers while allowing you take photos almost as fast as you can push the button.
  • The SD/XQD Card door is a little easier to open and close if compare with my previous camera, and it feels nicer to the touch with a textured rubber cover.
  • The bluetooth hasn't been a problem. Use the camera menu to turn it on and, if the phone/tablet is paired, it will quickly connect.
  • The iphone wifi sync feature is incredible-- you can see what the camera sees on your phone and control the shutter.
  • The WIFI connection was a big disappointment, so slow and a lot of disconnections.
