About the Nikon D850
The Nikon D850 is the latest full-frame high-resolution DSLR from Nikon. Boasting a 46-megapixel CMOS sensor and a fastest shooting ability, the D850 is a fairly radical departure from Nikon’s DSLR camera series. This amazing combination of properties has significantly widened the camera’s appeal to high-end photograph enthusiasts and a wide range of professional photographers.
The 46-megapixel CMOS sensor of Nikon D850 is backside illuminated and this means that the sensor’s light collecting elements are closer to the chip’s surface. This feature will not only increase the sensor’s efficiency and the ability to improve performance under low light but has also made the pixels close to the edges of the sensors to better accept light that approaches in a high angle of incidence, thereby significantly improving image quality.
Just like the D810, which was released prior, the Nikon D850 continues to offer an ISO 64 mode, which allows the camera to be able to tolerate more light, especially during bright conditions. The Nikon D850 has promised to offer similar dynamic range advantage as that of the D810 and this means that it should be able to compete with cameras that have medium format sensors, similar to Pentax 645Z and Fujifilm GFX 50S.
The Nikon D850 comes with a more usable EFCS or Electronic Front Curtain Shutter, an option that can be used during quiet shutter mode as well as during Mirror-up and live view modes. In order to get the full benefits of this feature, you must turn the exposure delay on, although the exposure delay persists in all shooting modes. Thanks to the D850’s redesigned shutter and mirror mechanism, the mirror and shutter shock is not much of a problem even if you don’t engage the EFCS.
The Nikon D850 does not come with an anti-aliasing filter, a feature that allows for a slightly finer detail capture. However, the camera has not shown any sign of Nikon’s clever patented design, thus, it will not allow you to employ an anti-aliasing effect in case you will find false color densely appearing in patterned areas.
Fast Shooting Ability
Aside from D850’s increased speed, it also comes equipped with full Auto Focus capabilities from Nikon’s flagship camera, the D5. This includes all of the camera’s hardware – Auto Focus module, metering sensor, as well as dedicated Auto Focus processor with a wide range of Auto Focus modes and configuration options. This should translate to a comparable focus performance, along with the cutting-edge resolution.
Since the D5 possess one of the best Auto Focus systems in a camera and continues to offer such performance in a wide variety of shooting scenarios and different conditions with only a minimal need for configuration, the Nikon D850 is, indeed an exciting camera.
Along with this system, the D850 has also gained an automated system for setting the Auto Focus Fine Tune Value. This feature not only adjusts the lens based on the central Auto Focus point and intended for a single distance, it is also an easy way to ensure that you are getting closer to the full capabilities of your camera’s lenses, which is a convenient feature given the 46-megapixel of detail.
Interestingly, the Nikon D850 is capable of shooting at 9 frames for every second if you will add the MB-D18 battery grip, which is optional, along with the EN-EL18b battery, the same thing that was used in Nikon’s D5. Along with the camera’s increasing burst rate, such combination can also enhance the camera’s battery life to 5140 shots for every charge. However, you will not get this same boost in speed and endurance if you’ll use a second EL15a in the grip.
When it comes to taking videos, the Nikon D85 is the first ever Nikon DSLR to ever capture a 4K video from the entire width of its sensor. This DSLR camera is capable of shooting videos at 24p, 25p or 30p and at a bit rate of 144 Mbps.
In a resolution of 1080, the Nikon D850 camera can possibly shoot at 60P, in a slow-motion mode capable of capturing at 120 frames for every second before outfitting at 24p, 25p or 30p. The camera’s 1080 mode also provides digital stabilization and focus peaking neither of these is available in a 4K shooting.
