BETTER: Nikon D780

The Nikon D780 ($2296) is a fantastic, full frame DSLR for enthusiast photographers and even aspiring pros. Featuring a 24.5MP backside illuminated sensor and powered by Nikon’s EXPEED image processor, the D780 is great for capturing crisp low-light photos with eye-catching, shallow depth of field. Its native ISO range is 100-51200 but can be expanded to ISO 204,800 to help you shoot in challenging near-dark conditions. The D780 can fire off bursts of images at up to seven frames per second when using the camera’s mechanical shutter, and at shutter speeds as fast as 1/8000 or as long as 900 seconds. The camera features a 51-point autofocus system when using the viewfinder and a 273-point Hybrid AF system for Live View and video. For photographers looking to get into shooting video, the D780 can capture 4K UHD video at up to 30p and full HD slow-motion video. The D780 also has a redesigned camera body and grip with a weather-resistant construction that feels great in your hand. There’s also a 3.2-inch tilting touchscreen display. “The camera delivers strong performance across the board,” Imaging Resource said in its review of the Nikon D780. “If a new DSLR is what you want, the Nikon D780 is a great option.”
