Nikon D850 Review

 

The Nikon D850 is the first DSLR that truly fits both speed and resolution in the same camera.

45.7-megapixel full-frame sensor renders excellent detail ; Speedy 153-point autofocus system ; 7 fps burst mode; 9 fps with battery grip ; Sturdy, weather-sealed design ; 4K video and 1080p slow-motion

Live-view autofocus is slower ; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection isn’t always reliable ; Pricey

Nikon D850

 

The Nikon D850 offers the best of all worlds: extreme resolution, fantastic image quality, fast shooting, and an exceptional build. It's our favorite pro SLR.

Full-frame 45.7MP image sensor. 153-point autofocus system. 7fps burst shooting. Wide ISO range. 4K video. Large optical viewfinder. Tilting touch LCD. Dual card slots. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Live View focus uses contrast detection only. Omits built-in flash. SnapBridge system needs some work.

Whether or not the D850 is even on your radar is largely dependent on how vested you are in your current camera system, and whether or not that system is Nikon. Let's talk about other systems first. For Canon devotees, we recommend the EOS 5D Mark IV...

Nikon D850 Review

 

Back in 2012 when Nikon launched the D800 and D800E, those models, in a sense, reignited the megapixel race amongst camera manufacturers. At the time, no other DSLR offered that kind of resolution. Yet despite the high megapixel count -- which has the...

But finally, when I look at the D850, I think there are signs that is changing. With the features that Nikon has built in to their new flagship, I think it's fair to say they're finally taking video seriously.

Nikon D850 review

 

High resolution meets high speed

Potential for large and detailed images ; Sophisticated and proven AF system ; Large and bright viewfinder ; 19.4MP DX crop mode ; Epic battery life

More expensive than D810 ; Live View focusing speed behind rivals ; SnapBridge still clunky

Whether you're shooting weddings, landscapes, portraits, action or wildlife, the D850 won't leave you wanting. A much more versatile proposition than the D810 (and its closest rivals for that matter), the D850 is a brilliant DSLR, and perhaps the most...

Nikon D850 review

 

This speedy DSLR also has a serious eye for detail

Super high-res sensor capable of incredible detail ; Burst mode makes it good for action too ; Weatherproof and extremely well built ; Incredibly crisp optical viewfinder ; Silent shooting mode is a useful extra

Centred focus points sometimes means recomposing ; XQD cards are expensive

A dependable beast of a full-frame camera that should be top of the wishlist for pros and enthusiastic amateurs alike

Nikon D850

 

Is this the most versatile professional DSLR ever made? . Nikon D850.

Sensor resolves exceptionally fine detail ; Super-fast autofocus and silent shooting in Live View ; Inherits AF toggle from D500 for fast AF point positioning ; Impressive battery life with EN-EL15a battery

Lacks on-chip phase detection AF in Live View ; Touchscreen doesn’t allow users to adjust key exposure settings ; SnapBridge connectivity requires improvement

The Nikon D850 is the perfect blend of high-resolution, speed and performance. It’s an all-round sensation and will be hugely popular with its target audience.
