- Nikon D750 is a full frame format camera
- Rugged yet lightweight body
- Nikon F lens mount
- Prosumer features
- Bargain prices
When Nikon released the Nikon D750 in late 2014, it was a very welcome addition to the Nikon Full Frame (or FX in Nikon talk) lineup of digital cameras. Finding a used Nikon D750 is still a great option for many serious digital photographers.
More capable than the consumer-oriented D6XX series but with a far lower price and lighter weight than the 36mp to 46mp sensor pro series 8XX cameras, the D750 has a 24mp full frame sensor, articulated screen, full HD video, and many great features for pros and serious amateurs.
Even though it was superseded by the D780 in early 2020, a used Nikon D750 is still one of the best choices for serious photographers wishing to move up to full frame format from crop format cameras and is fully capable of being used as a prosumer-level camera.
A prosumer-level camera is a camera that is priced attractively for the “average” consumer but has some features and a build strength that are conducive for being used in a manner in keeping with professional demands. It’s not a D850, D6, or Z9 top-level pro camera by any means, but a used Nikon D750 would probably be a great choice for many serious photographers.
Nikon D750 Specs
The Nikon D750 is a full frame format digital single-lens reflex camera. It has an image sensor that is 35.9 x 24mm in size and has 24 megapixels providing a maximum resolution of 6016 x 4016 recorded in JPEG and 12 or 14-bit RAW formats.
It uses Nikon’s Expeed 4 image processor and is also capable of recording full HD video (1080p) in ISO sensitivities from 50 to 51,200. The top shutter speed is 1/4000th of a second, flash syncs at 1/200th, and it can cycle at 6.5 frames per second.
It uses the Nikon F-mount, which allows a large percentage of Nikon lenses to fit and operate on the camera, has autofocus with many Nikon AF lenses, and its magnesium alloy and carbon fiber body is both rugged and lightweight.
It has a built-in flash and an articulating tilting rear viewscreen usable for image review, live view, and as the deep camera menu. The Nikon D750 battery is long-lasting at 1,230 shots per charge. The camera has two SD card slots and 100% viewfinder coverage.
Nikon D750 accessories include flashes, flash controllers, remotes (wired and wireless), a GPS unit, microphones, headphones, and external monitors.
Used Nikon D750 Price
One of the biggest reasons for buying a used Nikon D750 camera is the price. For decades, photographers have turned to used equipment to save money on the fine gear we need. While the D750 was priced brand-new in 2014 at around $2300 for the body only, you can find a used Nikon D750 body in excellent condition for under $1000!

5 Reasons Why a Used Nikon D750 is a Great Camera
I’m actually limiting myself by sticking with only five reasons! But here’s a few top choices:
Full Frame Format
The full frame format of a used Nikon D750 has excellent low-light performance compared to crop formats, has excellent resolution with a 24mp sensor, and full frame format is often required by some clients for professional imaging.
Rugged Yet Lightweight Body
An entry-level camera in a crop format likely won’t be as rugged as a Nikon D750, but the D750 is nowhere near the weight of a Nikon D850 or the size and weight of a Nikon D5 or D6 full-fledged professional camera.
While it may not be the army tank of a camera that top-of-the-line cameras are, a used Nikon D750 should perform well for all sorts of serious photography.
Nikon F Lens Mount
The Nikon F lens mount has been around longer than many of us have been alive! You can fit many of the lenses Nikon has made through the years to a used Nikon D750 camera. Just check the lens mounting guides on the Nikon websites or in the instruction manuals to learn how.
Current FX lenses are some of the best-performing lenses in all of digital photography. Many of the newest Nikon lenses are also available as used lenses for less than brand-new items.
Features that can help the workflow or capabilities of a working photographer are included in the D750 features, such as exposure bracketing, high-speed motor drive, extended ISO range, high resolution, 14-bit RAW imaging, dual card slots, and super-fast autofocus with 51 AF points.
Since you’ll most likely be finding this great camera as a used Nikon D750, the pricing will seem like a bargain compared to several other full frame format DSLRs on the market. The D750 was already very budget-friendly compared to the then-current D810 and D4s, so a used Nikon D750 from a reputable dealer like MPB is a very budget-friendly camera.
If you’re already shooting with an FX format Nikon, a used Nikon D750 is a great second camera. It is especially a good choice for any serious photographers wanting to move up to full frame format digital photography.
