Nikon's full frame D750 packs a tilting LCD and WiFi for pros on the go

Rumors of the full frame Nikon D750 have been floating around for a little over a month now, and where there's smoke there's usually a fire. To wit: Nikon just officially pulled back the curtain on its latest SLR, and it packs quite a bit of oomph into a body that's only $2299. The D750's foundation is awfully solid with its 24-megapixel FX format CMOS sensor, an Expeed 4 image processor (the same one seen in bodies like the much pricier D810), a more light-sensitive 51-point autofocus system, and an ISO range that stretches from 100 to 12,800. Oh, and did I mention it packs better battery life and some carbon fiber trim to keep the weight down? What might really put the D750 over the top for some of you, though, are some of the firsts that it boasts.

It's the company's first FX format camera to have a tilting LCD screen (we're looking at 3.2-inches diagonal) and the first to have built-in WiFi -- all of that has been crammed into a body that's thinner than usual thanks to some savvy internal component shuffling. Nikon's given the thing enough horsepower to make it worthy of slipping into a pro's bag, but it also pegs the D750 as a worthy upgrade for photogs with a more modest amount of experience under their belts and a selection of DX lenses they don't want to give up. As a concession to some of those greener camera buffs, Nikon has also included a slew of scene modes and effects too, just in case they're more concerned with grabbing fun shots than stunningly composed ones. Interest piqued? You'll be able to pick up the body by itself or with a 24-120mm f/4 VR kit lens by the middle of October... though if you're feeling the latter, you'll still need to wait for Nikon to disclose its price tag.
