Nikon D780 in Dental Photography

Nikon introduces a DSLR with features and benefits that were only available for its Z-Series before. It also inherits some features the company’s professional D5 and D850 models. Therefore, Nikon is giving us a signal: the DSLR era is not over yet and you will be able to continue using your F-mount lenses.

Benefits for Dental Photographers

What is more, the D780 offers the Wifi-connectivity we like from the Z7 and Z6 camera. This makes it easy to transfer images to a specified folder on your server, enhancing the workflow!

The camera has solid build quality and a tilting 3.2″ touchscreen display, USB Type C port (that can be used to charge the battery) and a pair of UHS-II SD card slots. Wireless options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The D780 can take over 2200 photos on a single charge of its battery, which means 3 days of taking photographs without thinking about charging the battery. 

The only “downside” compared to the Z series is the missing focus peaking in the optical viewfinder of the D780
