A number of Nikon D780 users have posted online to various online platforms about memory card errors they’ve experienced since the camera’s release a couple of months ago. Nikon has issued a firmware update to correct “an issue that sometimes prevented use of certain SD memory cards”, although they haven’t gone really into any detail beyond that.
The Nikon ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter was announced way back in August 2017, along with the Nikon D850. It looks like somebody finally bought the $140 plastic tube, though, because a sort-of review and how-to has been posted to DPReview.
The D850 came with a feature specifically designed for use with the ES-2, and so does the new Nikon D780, which is what’s used in the video. Although you don’t have to use one of these two cameras. You can use it with any camera, as long as you have a macro lens.
It’s been a long time coming, but the Nikon D750 has finally been replaced. Nikon has today announced the new Nikon D780 DSLR. It offers a very slightly higher resolution 24.5-megapixel sensor, and 4K video at 30-fps with N-Log and 10-Bit output over HDMI. It also sees significantly improved high ISO performance capping out at ISO 51200 over its predecessor’s 12800.
It’s a nice refresh from its predecessor, with the full speed 1/8000th of a second fastest shutter speed, fixing one of the biggest complaints of the D750. It also gains Eye AF when shooting with live view enabled for a more mirrorless-like experience. Liveview also provides silent shooting at up to 12 frames per second.
The Nikon D780 announcement is expected to arrive in just three days during the opening of CES 2020 in Las Vegas. To add some weight to that announcement rumour, images purporting to be of the new camera have been leaked on Nikon Rumors.
There are no new specs to come with the images, and the photos don’t appear to be exactly like any of Nikon’s other DSLRs, so it’s possible they are legit, although the “D780” lettering looks a little strange compared to Nikon’s prior releases. They also confirm the lack of popup flash.
Rumours of a Nikon D750 replacement, which won’t be called the D760, but either the D770, D780 or D790 (the current favourite seems to be D780), have been around for a few weeks now, and the camera itself may be officially announced as early as next week, a report suggests.
Nikon Rumours believes we might hear an official announcement and say they have an unconfirmed date for January 7th, 2020. That would be the start of CES. It might be unusual for Nikon to announce a camera at a general consumer electronic show rather than one specific to photography like CP+ or Photokina, but it wouldn’t be unheard of – especially as Nikon isn’t going to Photokina.
