Extreme resolution meets extreme speed.
When Nikon introduced the D800 and D800E, it set a new benchmark for DSLR image quality and super high resolution photography that approached medium format. Now, five years later, Nikon proudly introduces the next evolution in high resolution DSLRs, a camera that allows photographers to capture fast action in 45.7 megapixels of brilliant resolution. With remarkable advancements across the board—sensor design, autofocus, dynamic range, sensitivity, Speedlight control, battery life, shutter and mirror drive mechanisms, Silent Photography in Live-View mode, focus shift capability and more—this is quite possibly the most impressive, well-rounded DSLR yet.
Versatile Sound Controls
When audio levels rise unexpectedly, D850’s sound attenuator automatically reduces the microphone sensitivity to prevent distortion and maintain smooth recording with clear sound.
Confirm your manual focus with Focus Peaking4. Select high, medium or low sensitivity and red, yellow, blue or white highlights.
EXPEED 5 Image Processing
EXPEED 5 quickly processes all 45.7 megapixels of data for lower noise, wider dynamic range, subtle tonal and textural details, high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 9 fps1 and full-frame 4K UHD movie recording.
Speed to Match Your Vision
Capture elusive subjects at their peak with up to 8 fps continuous shooting1 for approximately 50 RAW images (14-bit lossless compressed).
Raw Batch Processing
Add the new MB-D18 Multi Battery Power Pack for improved handling with telephoto prime or telephoto zoom lenses, and increase your shooting speed to 9 fps6 at full resolution.
When you’ve got a deadline, transfer speed can make all the difference. Transfer images and movie files to a PC or FTP server via wired LAN/wireless LAN using the optional WT-7 Wireless Transmitter.
Digitize the gems from your film days at D850’s full 45.7 MP using the new optional ES-2 Film Digitizer Adapter on a compatible Micro-NIKKOR lens.
Light it Up
Create greater depth and dimension with advanced flash control and Nikon’s Creative Lighting System.
Spend more time taking great photos and less time waiting for things to process.
Using optional XQD storage allows for optimum handling of D850’s incredible high resolution files and shooting speeds. SD can be used for back up, overflow or just as extra storage space.
