A new full-frame DSLR powerhouse is in, well, the house. Nikon has announced the new Nikon D850 DSLR camera, with a whopping 45.7MP full-frame sensor that also records 4K at full-frame resolution.
The mid-tier full-frame camera from Nikon brings high-resolution images recording capabilities and high-speed capture functions into a single package. The sensor is a BSI CMOS sensor with no low pass filter that is capable to capture images at up to 7 frames per second (9 fps when used with the optional MB-D18 battery grip and EN-EL18a/b battery) at full resolution in RAW format.
The ISO performance of this camera is also very good – with a range from 64 up to 25,600 (and expandable down to 32, and up to 102,400). Focusing is expected to be sharp and on-point, thanks to the 153-point, Multi-Cam 20K AF system borrowed from the Nikon D5.
Video on this camera is another beast altogether, as it can capture 4K videos at 24/25/30p and there is even focus-peaking included for better focusing in manual mode. The videos and images can be shared in one of the two supported cards: XQD or SD.
A cool feature on the D850 is the tilt-screen, which is also touch sensitive for tap-and-capture operations. The magnesium-body of the D850 is also weather sealed, so you can snap away in just about any situation – be it at the humid race track or middle of the city.
It is set to go on sale this September worldwide, with a recommended price of US$ 3,299.95 (approx. RM 14,120) for the body.
