The Nikon D850 is a high-resolution, semi-pro DSLR, and an update to the popular Nikon D810. Key features include:
45.7MP FX-format BSI CMOS sensor
Multi-CAM 20K 153-point autofocus system
Improved shooting speed
4K UHD video capture at 30 fps
45.7MP FX-Format BSI CMOS Sensor. The D850 features an all-new 35mm full-frame backside-illuminated 45.7MP sensor with no optical low-pass filter for maximum image sharpness. Despite its increased resolution, this BSI sensor offers improved ISO performance with a native range of 64-25,600, which is expandable to 32-102,400.
EXPEED 5 Image Processor. The EXPEED 5 image processor works with the sensor to give you markedly faster performance than the D810, letting you shoot continuously at 7 fps for up to 51 consecutive 14-bit lossless compressed RAW files in a single burst. You can use the optional MB-D18 grip and EN-EL18a battery to increase the shooting rate to 9 fps. In DX crop mode during Silent Live View, you can shoot at up to 30 fps.
Fast Autofocus. The D850’s expansive Multi-CAM 20K AF system offers 153 phase-detection AF points with 99 cross-type sensors. However, please note that only 55 of those points are selectable. This system gives you a range of autofocus modes, each of which is designed for shooting a different type of subject. The autofocus fine-tune feature will automatically ensure the best possible focus for the lens you’ve mounted. If all of this sounds familiar, that’s because this is the same system found in Nikon’s flagship D5.
4K UHD Video and 8K Time-Lapse. The D850 is capable of in-camera 4K UHD capture at 24/25/30p (DX crop only), Full HD capture at up to 1080/120p, and uncompressed output to an external recorder via an HDMI Mini input. You can capture stereo audio in-camera or with an external mic via 1/8-inch input, while a separate 1/8-inch headphone input enables audio monitoring. You also get focus peaking to help you with manual-focus control and zebra stripes to detect overexposure in the frame. The D850 can produce 8K time-lapses with its Interval Timer Mode or 4K time-lapses in-camera with up to 9,999 exposures for each method.
Scene Recognition System. The intelligent Scene Recognition System uses an 180,000-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze every element of a scene, and then quickly apply the best white-balance setting to render that scene.
SDHC/XC and XQD Slots. The D850 has one SDHC/XC slot (UHS II supported) and one XQD slot, expanding your file-saving capabilities by allowing for overflow recording and in-camera file duplication, and by letting you separate RAWand JPEG files between two cards. Please note that this camera DOES NOT USE CF CARDS like the previous D810. If you need cards we rent both XQD cards and SD cards separately.
High-Quality Build. The D850 boasts an improved 3.2-inch touchscreen LCD with 2.359m-dot resolution. Its magnesium-alloy body features an ergonomic grip, weather-sealing, illuminated buttons, bright 0.75x optical pentaprism with 100% viewfinder coverage, and a EN-EL15a battery life rated at approximately 1,840 shots per charge. You can also use the optional MB-D18 grip and EN-EL18a battery for around 5,140 shots per charge.
