The Nikon D850 has released the Nikon 850 which replaces the three year old D810. The Nikon D850 will be available in September at a price of $3,299.95.
The Nikon D850 has a 45.7MP FX (full frame) BSI CMOS sensor without a low-pass filter, the first backside-illuminated sensor in Nikon’s lineup, can capture 7 frames a second stills (8fps with the new MB-D18 grip), has a base ISO of 64 and tops out at ISO 25,600, natively.
The D850 shares the EXPEED 5 processor as well as the 153-point focusing system of the Nikon D5, which has 99 cross type sensors (15 of which can focus at f/8). The Nikon D850 captures 4K video at 30/25/24p and uses the entire sensor surface.
The back of the Nikon D850 has a tilting LCD touchscreen which supports Touch AF in Live View. There’s also Silent Photography in Live View that can shoot 6 fps at full resolution without the mechanical shutter noise.
The Nikon D850 can capture 51 14-bit RAW files before its buffer is filled. Those shots are recorded to the fast XQD card in the first slot, while a second SD slot can be used for overflow or backup.
The battery is the EN-EL15a, that promises the immense 1800 shots battery life and 70 hours of video. The Nikon D850 is compatible with the old EN-EL15 battery too.
There’s Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth, which is used in conjunction with Nikon’s SnapBridge app to transfer images to smartphone while shooting.
