Is The New Nikon D850 Right For You?

You have probably heard that the Nikon has a new full frame DSLR. The Nikon D850 is out and is going to be Nikon's flagship camera moving forward. 

This camera has just about everything you could want from a full-frame DSLR. It has a hefty 45.7-megapixel CMOS sensor that’s back-side illuminated — a first for any of Nikon’s full-frame cameras. That should make the D850 handle low light situations pretty well despite the high megapixel count, which usually limits low light quality. Nikon has also included its top-line Expeed 5 image processor.

They also did not including a low pass filter on the D850 - which is a major trend in digital cameras today.  

But the camera is also relatively fast on the stills side when you consider the size of the files it’s dealing with. It has the same robust 153-point (99 cross type) autofocus system used in the D5, and can shoot 7 frames per second at full, 45.7-megapixel resolution. (If you buy the $399 battery grip, that max speed bumps up to 9 fps.) That’s with a 51-image buffer for 14-bit lossless RAW files, or 170 images shooting at 12-bit.

Here are a few other features about the Nikdon D850 you are sure to love!

Video Capabilities - The Nikon D850 shoots 4K UHD footage at 30 or 24 frames per second, and 1080p video at up to 120 fps. It can record uncompressed 4:2:2 8-bit 4K UHD footage to an external recorder over the HDMI port while recording locally to a card at the same time. There’s an 8K time-lapse video mode, too, which is double the resolution that’s typically found on DSLRs these days.

Silent Shooting Option - This lets users shoot up to 6 fps at full resolution (or up to 30 fps at 8.6-megapixels). This is done through the camera’s Live View mode, where the mirror stays up out of the way, and so the limitation here is that the camera’s exposure and focus will be locked from the first frame forward. But in the right setting this could be a big help, and it helps (slightly) make up for one of the biggest current shortcomings of DSLRs when compared to mirrorless cameras.

Memory Card - The D850 has two memory card slots — one XQD and one SD — to help capture all that data. 

Battery - The battery will last for about 1,800 shots (or 70 minutes of video).

Touchscreen - On the back is a fairly standard 3.2-inch tilting touchscreen, which is surrounded by illuminated buttons. It has a big viewfinder with 0.75x magnification, the highest ever in a Nikon DSLR, according to the company.

Other Features - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Snapbridge (the company’s solution for maintaining a constant connection to your smartphone) are all included as well.

We saw on PetaPixel that Nikon Rumors began sharing some specs that were rumored of the body of the new Nikon a few months ago, but now they have the first known photos of the D5 DSLR which are included here. 

Here is a photo of the current Nikon D4S that you can use for comparison: 

You can see from the photos below that the physical interface on the top of the camera has some small tweaks. There is a redesigned Nikon "swoosh," a new ISO button, no MODE button on top, a relocated video recording button and a few microphone holes right above the D5 on the front of the camera.

PetaPixel also says that Nikon Rumors are very confident of a number of rumored specs including: the camera will feature 153 autofocus points with a new focusing module that has a larger coverage area. There is also a native high ISO of 102, 400, up from ISO 25,600 in the D4S. 

Stay tuned for the announcement of the new Nikon D5 which is expected in early 2016! We are excited!
