NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 12, 2014) - B&H Photo is excited to share Nikon's release of the D750 DSLR Camera, AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED Lens, and SB-500 AF Speedlight. The D750 is Nikon's first full-frame camera to feature a tilting vari-angle display and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Nikon has also released a fast, wide-angle 20mm f/1.8 lens that is optimized for FX-format sensors. And, the SB-500 offers advanced features, such as wireless i-TTL triggering and an LED video light in a simple, compact design.

Speed and versatility are where the Nikon D750 shines, thanks to a newly designed 24.3-megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, paired with the EXPEED 4 image processor, which allow it to capture full-resolution stills at 6.5 fps, as well as full HD 1080p video at up to 60 fps. The vari-angle screen is an RGBW 3.2" 1,229k-dot LCD with color-balance customization. Nikon also managed to squeeze Wi-Fi connectivity directly into the D750's lean body.

In-camera Wi-Fi  enables transfer of images directly to your favorite mobile device, wherever you are, for immediate sharing. Users can also control the D750 from compatible smart devices for remote monitoring. The WT-5A Wireless Transmitter and UT-1 Communication Unit are also compatible for faster wireless transfers.

Professional photographers will appreciate the inclusion of both the 51-point AF system and 3D Color Matrix Metering II with a 91,000-pixel RGB sensor found in the D810 and D4S. This system allows for responsive controls and fast, accurate imaging. The D750's AF system is the first Nikon DSLR that can function down to -3 EV for enhanced low-light performance.

Video also sees a feature set that puts it in line with the D810, even including features like time-lapse sequences -- up to 9,999 shots in-camera. A nice addition to the D750 is the ability to use Special Effects Mode during recording for getting unique looks, like miniature and selective color, in your video.

Manual control of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture is available during recording, and the D750 can even use Power Aperture control for smooth exposure as well as Auto ISO for smooth exposure transitions. Highlight display with zebra stripes can help confirm exposure and Flat Picture Control makes color grading easier in post. The camera is available for pre-order as a body only or as a kit with the 24-120mm lens. Additionally, a 2-year extended service warranty is now available.

Accompanying the D750's release is the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED Lens, offering an exceptional f/1.8 maximum aperture for an wide-angle lens. An optimal focal length for landscapes, architecture, and more, the low-light capabilities and shallow depth of field will enable a variety of creative choices. The 20mm will also focus as close as 7.8", using the fast and quiet Silent Wave Motor AF system, allowing for image composition in tight spaces.

The optical design aims to get the most out of the latest high-resolution digital sensors by implementing aspherical lens elements for a compact design and extra-low dispersion glass elements to minimize chromatic aberrations. The glass has a Nano Crystal Coating that reduces flare for increased contrast and sharpness. Additionally, it makes a nice wide-angle addition to the existing f/1.8 lens lineup, where it joins the 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm.

Nikon's i-TTL compatible flash lineup sees a newcomer with the SB-500 AF Speedlight, which sits nicely between the extremely lightweight SB-300 and the very versatile SB-700. Bringing a 100-lux LED light with three output levels to the Nikon flash family, the SB-500 is an ideal choice for those who shoot both stills and video on their DSLRs. It has a guide number of 79' at ISO 100, and has coverage for 24mm lenses in FX-format.

Wireless slave i-TTL functionality is also standard on the SB-500, and it will work with a camera's built-in commander function, other Speedlights like the SB-700 and SB-910, or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander. The flash head also tilts upward 90° and will rotate left and right 180° for bounce capabilities. The flash comes with both a soft case and a stand.
