Popular Photography Magazine has recently announced the photographer’s dream, the Nikon D750 as the Top Digital Camera of the Year for the year 2014.
The magazine crowned D750 as Camera of the Year for its amazing picture quality, operation speed, superb auto focus system, and performance in low light. Apart from these, D750’s built in Wi-Fi, tilting vari-angle LCD screen and advanced video features made sure that the crown went nowhere else.
This honor acknowledges the device as:
most refined or redefined photography in the past 12 months, as determined by lab and field tests as well as overall performance and technological advancement
As stated on Popular Photography Website, here are the reasons why D750 emerged as the winner:
•Excellent image quality with well- controlled noise as ISO rises
•Industry-leading 51-point 3D auto focus tracking system
•Burst rate of 6.5 fps for up to 87 JPEG or 15 RAW frames
•Built-in Wi-Fi for image transfer to—and control through—your mobile device

•Well-designed, weather-sealed magnesium-alloy body

The competition was not one sided though. The other competitors were almost neck to neck with the D750. Tying in second place were the Panasonic Lumix GH4 and the Fujifilm X-T1. The other honorable mentions were the Pentax 645Z and the Samsung NX30.
