The search for uncompromising performance in the worlds of photography and videography is over. The Nikon D850 sets remarkable standards of quality in both, possessing an impressive 45.7 effective megapixels that allows it to capture the most awe-inspiring images and produce phenomenal 8K UHD time-lapse movies via images taken with its silent interval timer shooting. Create epic film masterpieces in full-frame 4K UHD with NIKKOR wide-angle lenses, or prolong exquisite moments with its 120p/100p Full HD slow-motion recording. It also boasts enhanced superior agility to keep up with the demands of the modern photographer, such as continuous shooting functions at speeds approximately 7 frames per second (fps) or 9 fps1, and a revolutionary shutter and mirror drive mechanism that improve the stability of the composition. Whether your interest lies with the fields of fashion, nature, sports or wedding photography and videography, you will always be inspired to bring out your best with the game-changing Nikon D850.
ALL YOU NEED TO CRAFT A TIMELESS IMAGE
Meet the camera that has perfected extraordinary image clarity, with its stunning 45.7 effective megapixels, giving you superior enhanced resolution that is impeccably suited to professional large-format poster or canvas print. An ISO range of 64 to 25600 also allows increased sensitivity and versatility with a wide range of environments.
DIRECT STUNNING CONTENT
Record the magic of those “I do” moments for all eternity with this camera. As a revolutionary first for Nikon DSLR cameras, full-frame 4K UHD and Full HD movie can be filmed in both Nikon FX-based and DX-based movie formats. This allows you the versatility to record even more details in either the 35mm DX-format which provides more reach, or the large FX-format that provides a shallow depth of field with a captivating bokeh effect. The versatility continues from time-lapse to slow-motion shooting functions – the camera offers the ability to create images that go beyond 8K UHD with silent interval timer shooting at 45 megapixels and 4x (shot at 120/100p, recorded at 30/25p) or 5x (shot at 120p, recorded at 24p) slow-motion film.2
POWER AND SPEED AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Never miss a once-in-a-lifetime photo with the improved speed and power of this camera. Employ the approximately 7 fps or 9 fps1 high-speed continuous shooting to your advantage and capture the action at the exact moment you need. Enhance your abilities with the superior 153-point autofocus (AF) system and an exclusive AF engine that utilises parallel processing with a sequence control microcomputer so you get high performance autofocusing even for demanding high-speed shoots. The camera even has an optical viewfinder with approximately 0.75x magnification, the largest in Nikon DSLR camera history, so you can compose the perfect shot with its wide field of view.
BRING OUT THE TRUE COLOURS OF EVERY SHOT
Always shoot in the best light, even when you are exploring the great outdoors. The Nikon D850 offers a wide range of colour temperatures to provide you with the best tones and exposure, especially when it comes to natural light sources. The natural light auto function provides a more accurate white balance while outdoors, creating more vibrant colours that stand out with every image. The camera also offers reliable remote flash shooting using Nikon SB-50003 via radio-control. Even when there are obstacles between your Nikon D850 and the Nikon SB-5000, you can still count on consistently dependable flash control that offers you enhanced flexibility wherever you go.
MAINTAIN YOUR STABILITY EVEN UNDER PRESSURE
From museums to theatres, you will be artfully assisted by the camera’s 45-megapixel silent photography that is completely noiseless during shutter release. Even during sound sensitive situations involving animals or athletes, the approximately 6 fps4 continuous silent shooting boosts your ability to capture that key shot. Additionally, innovative new shutter and mirror drive mechanisms act in tandem to reduce vibration during shutter release, avoiding mechanical vibrations that could impact the sharpness of your image.
ENGINEERED FOR EFFICIENCY
Featuring a tilting 3.2-inch, 2359k-dot touch-screen LCD monitor, the Nikon D850 enables smoother operation through a wider range of touch operations, facilitating easier confirmation for composition and images. When you need extreme clarity in product or macro photography, the focus shift function on the camera automatically takes images while moving focus position from starting point to infinity, competently acquiring images for focus stacking5. The camera even facilitates a more flexible editing process with the ability of batch processing RAW files directly within the camera.
NEVER LET YOUR MEMORIES FADE AWAY
Turn your negatives into digital keepsakes with the camera’s unique negative digitizer function. In a few simple steps, you can use basic equipment6 to convert your negative film, either colour or monochrome, to 45-megapixel digital photos. The D850 can also be connected to your TV via HDMI for easier image selection, viewing, and enjoyment of your newly converted photographs.
