The first images of Nikon’s anticipated D780 have appeared online. Ahead of the official announcement, expected sometime this week, photos showing every angle of the new model have surfaced.
Due to be announced in an official capacity at CES, images of the D780 come via Nikon Rumors, who has published what appear to be legitimate product shots of the new gear.
The pictures suggest Nikon hasn’t included the AF selection joystick that has appeared on previous camera models, such as the D500. The AE-L/AF-L button has been move further down the body, while an AF-ON button is now above it.
At the top of the body is the ISO selection button, behind the shutter button. The rumors suggest it will contain a 24MP BSI CMOS sensor, improved low-light shooting, a more powerful image processor, dual USH-II SD card slots, 4K/30p video recording, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity, and more.
We’ve yet to see pictures of the underside of the camera. From the images unveiled so far, though, it may be bad news for fans of shooting in portrait orientation, as it seems to appear there’s no vertical grip yet.
As with every rumor, we’ll have to await the official announcement in order to confirm exact specifications.
