Nikon D850 defines perfection the best with its stunning 45.7 effective megapixels, giving you a superior enhanced resolution that is impeccably suited to professional large-format poster or canvas print. 

It is packed with specs that every filmmaker and photographer will enjoy. The camera makes sure it is ready to perform in every situation you put it in.

  • Significant noise reduction
  • Image processing speed 5 delivers great colour production, fine details.
  • No shutter release sound
  • Active D- lighting, HDR, Auto white balance option
  • Low light metering down to -3 EV.
  • More composition freedom
  • Electronic Rangefinder with improved precision
  • Durable, long battery life.
  • Compatible with months-iiii sd cards
  • Flexible remote shooting control

An ISO range of 64 to 25600 also allows increased sensitivity and versatility with a wide range of environments.

Features of Nikon D850 are as follows:-

Spectacular 8k Time-Lapse Movie Creation:

The D850 takes your time-lapse movies into a new realm with its Nikon FX-format CMOS image sensor. Harnessing the humongous pixel count of 45 megapixels (8256 × 5504 pixels) with the high resolving power of NIKKOR lenses, the interval timer mode allows you to capture over 8K-size images with exquisite detail for time-lapse movie creation. The 45 megapixels also allow greater leeway in creating sharper 4K video by down-conversion or adding pan and zoom effects within the frame in post-production using a computer to inject more dynamism into the finished piece.

Silent Interval Timer Photography:

When shooting time-lapse sequences outdoors for hours at night, you can focus on your shooting without worrying about shutter release noise or mechanical wear with the silent interval timer photography function in live view mode that drives the shutter electronically. It also prevents mechanical vibrations that might cause image blur. Meaning you will maximize the potential of the 45.7 megapixels. The silent interval timer function lets you shoot up to 9,999 frames.

In-Camera Raw Batch Processing:

Shooting in RAW gives greater leeway in post-production, letting photographers draw the most from the images they capture. Until now, however, processing RAW has always been tremendously time-consuming. The D850 resolves this issue by offering an incredibly convenient, in-camera RAW batch-processing feature that applies similar changes to all the selected images.

Track Fast & Erratic Movements:

Accurate focusing is crucial to large-pixel-count images. The D850 comes equipped with the same powerful 153-point AF system as the flagship D5 — a technology widely praised by editorial sports photographers. The 153 densely packed focus points (55 selectable) provide over 130% of the D810’s frame coverage, while 99 cross sensors with precise detection are optimally distributed. The AF system makes it possible to achieve pinpoint focus on a small area such as the Athlete’s eye. Its design makes it possible to immediately acquire fast, often random movements and track them tenaciously. The D850 also comes with the same AF lock-on adjustment menu as the D5, which helps it focus more accurately on subjects moving toward the camera.

Furthermore, the central point functions at -4 EV and all other focus points at -3 EV, thanks to the Multi-CAM 20K autofocus sensor module, which was developed to keep noise to an absolute minimum, allowing for accurate AF in challenging light.

Precise Focus On Distant Subjects With Teleconverters — Powerful AF Compatible With An Effective Aperture of f/8:

Accurate focusing is crucial to large-pixel-count images. The D850 comes equipped with the same powerful 153-point AF system as the flagship D5 — a technology widely praised by editorial sports photographers. The 153 densely packed focus points (55 selectable) provide over 130% of the D810’s frame coverage, while 99 cross sensors with powerful detection are optimally distributed. The AF system makes it possible to achieve pinpoint focus on a small area such as an athlete’s eye, but is also designed to immediately acquire fast, often random movements and track them tenaciously. The D850 also comes with the same AF lock-on adjustment menu as the D5, helping to focus more accurately on subjects moving toward the camera.

Consistent Exposures Under Artificial Light Sources: Flicker Reduction Minimizes Exposure Variances:

Artificial light sources such as mercury lighting often produce flickering, causing undesired variations in exposure and colour in consecutive shots. The D850’s flicker reduction function avoids this problem by detecting the peak brightness level and automatically shifting the release timing slightly to avoid underexposure and colour casts. This gives you stable exposures even during continuous shooting. In movie shooting, using ‘auto’ flicker reduction makes the camera automatically switch exposure control according to the frequency of light sources, preventing the occurrence of banding in the footage.

Truly Dynamic Action Photography — Nikon fx-format, Backside Illumination CMOS Sensor For 45.7 Megapixels With ISO 64-25600:

The d850 allows commercial sports photographers to capture moments of dynamic action in sumptuously rich detail — even during 9-fps continuous shooting. It is the first Nikon D-SLR to use a backside illumination sensor, which allows incoming light to reach photodiodes more efficiently. Together with the camera’s low-noise performance, this enables it to achieve iso 25600 despite its high pixel count. What’s more, it strikes an optimal balance between sensor sensitivity and the volume of light information accumulated in photodiodes, yielding images with a wide dynamic range even at iso 64 (expandable to iso 32 equivalent) — the lowest native iso setting offered by any camera manufacturer. Copper wiring is used to cut electrical resistance, while the backside illumination structure allows a flexible wiring layout, reducing stray capacity.

These measures enable 45-megapixel fx-format images to be captured at continuous shooting speeds of 9 fps*1. And because the sensor is designed without an optical low-pass filter, it can harness the sharpness of 45 megapixels when combined with the high resolving power of Nikkor lenses. The d850 yields pictures that can be enlarged as massive prints at up to a2 size*2 or used for 8k digital signage displays.

Tested For 200,000 Cycles — Durable, High-Precision Shutter:

To ensure durability, the D850’s shutter is tested for 200,000 cycles. The design minimizes the mechanical vibration that causes image blur. The d850 is the first Nikon d-SLR to adopt a shutter counter-balancer in its shutter drive, which travels upward during each shutter release to counteract the vibration caused by the front curtain’s downward motion. What’s more, the camera’s shutter monitor function calculates the duration between front- and rear-curtain movements every time the shutter is released, and automatically corrects any variance.

Unparalleled Resolving Power To Match 45 Megapixels — Nikkor Lenses:

With their exceptionally high resolving power, which makes full use of 45 megapixels, Nikkor lenses are a perfect partner for the d850, with a diverse lineup including many telephoto lenses. Thanks to Nikon’s superb optical technology, they provide sharp resolution even at the periphery of an image, combined with elaborately designed, beautiful image-blur characteristics. Many lenses feature the anti-reflective Nano crystal coat, which effectively reduces ghost and flare. They are also designed to reproduce point light sources as point images as much as possible. Nikkor lenses are powerful tools for professionals looking to ensure brilliantly sharp images regardless of the subject, environment, or lighting conditions.
