What experts liked
The D750 captures 1080/60p videos. As we reported in our D810 review, Nikon has come a long way in terms of movie quality and focusing.

It offers excellent image quality, an advanced autofocus system, fast continuous shooting, and a host of video features.

In addition to the solid build, Nikon also weather-sealed the D750 against dust and moisture, just like on higher-end cameras. I am happy to say that the construction of the D750 is indeed excellent and it can easily survive in tough weather conditions.
- Photography Life
The Nikon D750 also has an excellent, deep handgrip. It feels well balanced, and ready to take on the more serious FX and DX series lenses.

This has an advanced 51-point AF system and excellent 24MP full-frame sensor. Tilt-angle screen. Lightweight full-frame body.

The Nikon D750 delivers the best photo quality and continuous-shooting performance in its price class, along with a nicely well-rounded feature set.

The Nikon D750 creates beautiful images in both ample and dim lighting, has an autofocus system that covers a large portion of the frame and does an excellent job of tracking moving subjects, and is very comfortable to hold and operate the controls. Its weather-sealed body can withstand inclement shooting conditions, and dual card slots give the option to backup, or better organize, your photos as you shoot.
- New York Times Wirecutter
Outstanding image quality with great dynamic range and high ISO performance; Class-leading burst rate; Very good 51-pt AF system; AF system works in very low light; Deep, comfortable handgrip; Articulated LCD monitor; Excellent battery life; Uncompressed 4:2:2 HDMI video output; Built-in Wi-Fi.

In our labs, the D750 did exceptionally well, beginning with our color accuracy test. When we shot in the standard color mode–the most accurate–we saw very little error and saturation was nearly perfect.

What experts didn't like
Underexposes some scenes and a bit expensive.

The only real downsides are limited buffer capacity, slow live view AF, and poor camera control from a smartphone.

The only issue was the battery, which did not last long at such cold temperatures.
- Photography Life
This camera misses some manual control features of the D810.

No AF-On button, slow AF in live biew and shutter speed is limited to 1/4000 sec.

Nikon's Wi-Fi implementation is weak and some of the other features could be executed a little better. Plus Live View performance is sad.
- CNET

Buffer fills quickly with 14-bit RAW; Sluggish Live View AF; Shutter speed tops out at 1/4000s; OVF coverage closer to 97%; Weak low-pass filter is great for detail but higher risk of moire.

The one issue we came across–as it is on most Nikons–is the white balance accuracy. The D750 has done little to nothing to improve the poor auto white balance system, which continues to struggle in mixed or fluorescent lighting. Either shoot in RAW then fix it in post or stick to the custom white balance.
