Nikon D750 Settings


I was asked what my settings were for the Nikon D750. Here are most of those settings, but I want to be sure you know that these are not what I use every time. I do modify these based on situations.

However, this is how I generally leave the camera set.

  • Aperture Priority
  • Slow Flash Sync
  • Auto Focus – Single
  • Auto Focus – Auto set to find faces
  • White Balance A1
  • RAW
  • Matrix Metering
  • Auto ISO
    • Lowest ISO 100
    • Highest ISO 12800
    • Shutter Speed 1/500

I am post-processing all images through Adobe Lightroom 5.7.


The first thing I am changing on these settings is White Balance. I will Custom White balance most of the time using the ExpoDisc.

The second thing I am changing is the Auto Focus. Again, I will choose a single point using the 51 pts to move the tiny box around the viewfinder where I put it most of the time on the subject’s eyes.
