“I'm going to shoot a project on HD with a Nikon D750. My DoP has given me some test footage, but I am unable to import the footage into Final Cut Pro 7?”
The D750 has a feature set unlike full-frame DSLRs its size. It uses the same autofocus and metering technology as the D4S and the D810 - Nikon's powerful 51-point AF system with 15 cross-type sensors and 3D Color Matrix Metering III with a 91,000-pixel RGB sensor. Simultaneously record uncompressed and compressed Full HD 1080 footage at 60/50/30/25/24p.
