Nikon D850 Wi-Fi 4K Digital SLR Camera Body
Extreme resolution meets extreme speed.
Witness the next stage in evolution for high-resolution photography. The Nikon D850 doesn't simply surpass the incredible image quality of the D810, with 45.7 effective megapixels and ISO sensitivity from 64-25600. It pairs these with a new level of versatile and uncompromising performance, including continuous shooting speeds of 7 fps and the 153-point AF system used in the flagship D5. It's the first Nikon FX-format D-SLR camera to offer full-frame 4K UHD video, while time-lapse shooters can create high-resolution sequences even under extremely low light. From landscape to commercial sports, wedding and fashion photography, as well as multimedia shooting, the D850 lets you create astounding images that meet the strictest professional requirements.
With remarkable advancements across the board -- Full-frame sensor design, EXPEED 5 image-processing engine, 3.2" Tilting Touchscreen, weather and dust resistant body, 8K Time-Lapse, Negative Digitizer Mode, Speedlight control, Silent Photography in Live-View mode, Focus Shift Mode, dual memory card slots for XQD and UHS-II SD cards, and much more -- this is quite possibly the most impressive, well-rounded DSLR yet.
Additionally, built-in SnapBridge allows for wireless sharing of low-resolution imagery and remote live view use on a linked mobile device, and an optional WT-7a Wireless Transmitter can also be used for faster wireless transferring of files.
45.7MP FX-Format BSI CMOS Sensor with an ISO sensitivity range from 64-25600
The D850 allows landscape photographers to capture a diverse range of scenes in sumptuously rich detail. It is the first Nikon D-SLR to use a backside illumination sensor, which allows incoming light to reach photodiodes more efficiently. Together with the camera's low-noise performance, this enables it to achieve ISO 25600 despite its high pixel count. What's more, it strikes an optimal balance between sensor sensitivity and the volume of light information accumulated in photodiodes, yielding images with a wide dynamic range even at ISO 64 (expandable to ISO 32 equivalent) -- the lowest native ISO setting offered by any camera manufacturer.
Copper wiring is used to cut electrical resistance, while the backside illumination structure allows a flexible wiring layout, reducing stray capacity. These measures enable 45-megapixel FX-format images to be captured at continuous shooting speeds of 9* fps. And because the sensor is designed without an optical low-pass filter, it can harness the sharpness of 45 megapixels when combined with the high resolving power of NIKKOR lenses. The D850 yields pictures that can be enlarged as massive prints at up to A2 size or used for 8K digital signage displays.
Beauty is where you find it. The D850 captures it all -- thanks to its EXPEED 5 image-processing engine, also incorporated in the flagship D5. EXPEED 5 renders delicate tonality in highly vivid colors, and its superb noise reduction suppresses noise effectively while maintaining detail. Its powerful calculation ability also permits high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 9* fps with 45 megapixels, as well as full-frame, 4K UHD movie recording.

Superior low-noise performance at high ISO settings
Even in dark scenes, you can rely on the D850 for consistently sharp video with low noise. Despite the great leap in effective pixel count from the D810, the camera achieves a wider standard sensitivity range of ISO 64-25600 for both stills and movies. This is thanks to the greater light-gathering efficiency of the new backside illumination CMOS structure, and the EXPEED 5 image-processing engine's ability to effectively reduce noise while maintaining details. You can also widen the possibilities for your shooting by extending sensitivity up to Hi 2 (ISO 102400 equivalent). The D850 encourages videographers to explore their creativity in a variety of scenes.
Auto ISO control for fixed aperture/shutter speed in M mode
Imagine filming a scene where the brightness changes significantly, such as following a subject from a dark corridor into the noonday sun, within one take. The Auto ISO function in M mode ensures the camera automatically adjusts its ISO settings to changes in brightness, while maintaining a specific depth of field and shutter speed. This helps achieve appropriate exposure throughout the scene.
RAW size options
There are times when you don't necessarily need to shoot at a full 45 megapixels. However, the variety of scenarios that wedding photography involves -- from posed portraits and multiple flash set-ups to low-light candid shots -- means you may still want to retain the flexibility of RAW in post-production. That's why the D850 offers three file size options for 12-bit lossless compressed RAW: large (45.4 MP), medium (25.5 MP) and small (11.3 MP). And whichever option you use, in-camera RAW processing is still available.
|RAW SIZE OPTIONS
Picture Control system
Nikon's Picture Control system helps you craft images that match your creative intentions and purposes. The D850 incorporates the new Auto Picture Control, in addition to the seven existing presets. Each preset allows you to tune settings such as sharpening and clarity, opening up a wider range of options for achieving your ideal image. You can adjust settings and store them as your own custom Picture Controls.
Auto Picture Control
Auto Picture Control produces more desirable images by automatically fine-tuning the tone curve, color, sharpening and clarity of the Standard option, according to each scene's characteristics. As a result, blue skies and verdant greens are rendered more vibrantly for landscape shots. The Advanced Scene Recognition System is now even better at identifying light sources, meaning red colors can be emphasized in sunsets and sunrises
Silent photography at 45 megapixels
When capturing a night sky blanketed with stars, you probably want to avoid even the tiniest image blur to maximize the advantage of 45 megapixels. The D850's silent photography function in live view mode utilizes an electronic shutter instead of triggering any mirror or shutter movement, meaning it doesn't cause any mechanical vibration. Photographers can capture every last detail in 45 megapixels -- and in complete silence. This mode can be used in approx. 6-fps continuous shooting, but can also shoot approx. 8.6-megapixel pictures in DX image area at approx. 30 fps.
New natural light auto white balance option
The D850 employs a new "natural light auto" white balance mode, taking advantage of the Advanced Scene Recognition System's improved light source identification function. This option delivers optimal white balance results under natural light -- a valuable asset for landscape shooters. It makes it possible to respond quickly to changes in the weather conditions without switching to the direct sunlight or cloudy options. When shooting scenes such as an autumnal landscape awash with red leaves or spectacular orange sunset, it also enhances the warm colors, helping create even more impressive pictures.
High Dynamic Range (HDR
The High Dynamic Range (HDR) function takes two images of different exposures with one shutter release and automatically combines them to produce a single image with a wider dynamic range. This achieves images with rich tonal gradation in shadows and highlights, even for highcontrast shooting scenes. HDR is ideal for stationary subjects such as high-contrast landscapes and still lifes.
Even when shooting high-contrast scenes in backlit situations, Active D-Lighting preserves details in highlight areas as well as shadowy areas, reproducing brightness as you see it. Active D-Lighting is suitable for use with moving subjects, as it does not involve combining two images like the High Dynamic Range (HDR) function does.
|ACTIVE D-LIGHTING: OFF
||ACTIVE D-LIGHTING: HIGH
Convenient shooting with ND filters and low-light metering down to -3 EV
The D850 employs a 180K-pixel RGB sensor with superb low-light sensitivity, the same as the flagship D5, offering metering down to -3 EV. This helps enormously when shooting low-light scenes. It is also invaluable when capturing long-exposure shots with ND filters (such as seascapes or running water), as it allows you to rely fully on the camera's AE and AF without needing to detach the filter. Furthermore, the Advanced Scene Recognition System uses the RGB sensor's increased pixel count to enhance the accuracy of various auto controls such as auto white balance, i-TTL balanced fill-flash, auto-area AF, 3D-tracking and Active D-Lighting, making it easier for photographers to achieve their desired results.
180K-pixel RGB sensor for Advanced Scene Recognition System
The D850 is equipped with the same 180K-pixel RGB sensor as the D5. Its increased pixel count enhances the accuracy of various auto controls by the Advanced Scene Recognition System, such as matrix metering, auto white balance, i-TTL balanced fill-flash, auto-area AF, 3D-tracking and Active D-Lighting. Furthermore, metering is available down to -3 EV thanks to the sensor's superb low-light sensitivity, which is effective when shooting lowcontrast scenes or using a teleconverter. Meanwhile, the flicker detection function reduces flicker effects for more
consistent still photo shooting.
Imagine shooting a white-clad karate athlete under a spotlight against a dark background. If you want to retain the subtle tones and nuances of color in the clothes, try highlight-weighted metering. This setting delivers a richer tonality in images by giving priority to the brightest portions of a scene and avoiding white clipping.
Flicker reduction minimizes exposure variances
Artificial light sources such as mercury lighting often produce flickering, causing undesired variations in exposure and color in consecutive shots. The D850's flicker reduction function avoids this problem by detecting the peak brightness level and automatically shifting the release timing slightly to avoid underexposure and color casts. This gives you stable exposures even during continuous shooting. In movie shooting, using "Auto" flicker reduction makes the camera automatically switch exposure control according to the frequency of light sources, preventing the occurrence of banding in footage.
153-point AF system and AF down to -4 EV
The D850's powerful 153-point AF system -- the same acclaimed technology used in the flagship D5 -- delivers over 130% of the D810's frame coverage, with 99 cross sensors offering powerful detection. Thanks to a Multi-CAM 20K autofocus sensor module, developed to keep noise to an absolute minimum, the central point functions at -4 EV and other focus points at -3 EV. Accurate AF is possible in challenging low-light or low-contrast situations -- a great asset for landscape photographers shooting in the hours when light is scarce, such as at sunrise and sunset, and especially useful for capturing nighttime scenes.
Dedicated AF engine
Like the D5, the D850 employs a dedicated AF engine. Working in parallel with the sequence control microcomputer, it achieves simultaneous rangefinding at all 153 focus points, which contributes to fast, accurate focusing. As a result, when shooting an athlete portrait in auto-area AF, for example, it eliminates the need to select focus points each time you change your composition, contributing to a more efficient workflow.
Powerful AF compatible with an effective aperture of f/8
The D850 demonstrates powerful AF performance even when using a teleconverter. All 153 points are compatible with effective apertures of f/5.6 or faster. And fifteen focus points, including nine selectable points, are compatible with an effective aperture of f/8.
Auto AF fine-tune for viewfinder shooting
Accurate AF is crucial to take full advantage of the D850's high pixel count. To ensure focusing accuracy, the D850's auto AF fine-tune makes subtle adjustments for each type of lens you use. The simplified process involves achieving focus in live view and letting the camera automatically acquire, then store, the AF tuning value.
7-fps / 9-fps high-speed continuous shooting
Redefine the power of a dynamic moment with a spectacular match of high resolution and high-speed shooting. The D850 captures massive, sharp 45-megapixel images at 9 fps with the optional MB-D18 Multi-Power Battery Pack (with EN-EL18b/EN-EL18a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery) attached, or at 7 fps with the body only. The new image sensor achieves fast readout of large amounts of data, which is handled rapidly by the powerful EXPEED 5 imageprocessing engine. Despite the heavy load, the camera is capable of continuous shooting for up to 51 frames (body alone) even in 14-bit lossless compressed RAW (up to 170 frames in 12-bit lossless compressed RAW). It lets you explore a whole new realm of high-speed photography combined with high-resolution images.
Enhanced multiple exposure options
The D850's multiple exposure function is more versatile than ever before, allowing photographers to explore their creativity further. The camera now saves all pictures shot in this mode, so you can use individual images for other purposes as well. It is also now possible to confirm each picture during shooting, as well as the overlay image being created. If your last shot doesn't meet your satisfaction, you can delete, reshoot and replace it easily. Furthermore, the camera lets you select a picture stored as RAW (L) on your memory cards for use as the first image of the overlay. Lighten and darken overlay modes are also now available.
The D850's new pinpoint AF mode is a valuable asset for macro shooting in live view photography. It uses a focus area that's a quarter the size of conventional normal-area AF, enabling you to achieve precise focus on small details -- particularly useful when focusing on subjects such as the pistil or stamen of a flower.
Focus peaking display
Many landscape photographers prefer to use manual focus for macro shots, such as when shooting at wide apertures like f/1.4 or f/2.8 with a shallow depth of field. The D850's focus peaking display makes it easier to confirm manual focus during live view, including when zooming. The camera detects the scene's highest-contrast edges -- meaning they are in focus -- and highlights them in a designated color. You can choose to display highlights in red, white, yellow or blue, according to your subject's own coloration, and adjust between three levels of detection sensitivity.
Electronic rangefinder with improved precision
In addition to offering superb autofocus performance, the D850 also makes manual focusing more precise. Its electronic rangefinder identifies whether a subject is in focus more accurately than ever before, allowing you to capture sharp images when focusing in manual mode, or using a manual focus lens.
|FOCUS PEAKING DISPLAY
Focus shift photography
When shooting a landscape containing various subjects at different focus distances or creating specimen pictures of insects and flowers, photographers may want to bring everything into sharp focus. The D850 introduces a focus shift photography function, which enables it to shoot sequences of up to 300 frames, while gradually and automatically shifting focus position from the start point to infinity. The shutter release interval can be set from 0-30's, while the focus step width can be selected from 10 levels. Continuous shooting at approx. 5 fps is also available. Combining the pictures using focus stacking in post-production gives you an image where every detail is in brilliantly sharp focus.
New 1:1 image area option
The D850 introduces a new image area option with a 1:1 aspect ratio. While reminiscent of 6 x 6 medium format, it's also ideal for social media, where square images have become increasingly popular. It is also possible to add shading in the viewfinder around the image area you choose, helping you compose more accurately. You can create pictures to impress your followers, as well as experiment with the creative potential of this unique image area.
Spectacular 8K time-lapse movie creation
The D850 takes your time-lapse movies into a new realm with its Nikon FX-format CMOS image sensor. Harnessing the vast pixel count of 45 megapixels (8256 x 5504 pixels) with the high resolving power of NIKKOR lenses, the camera's interval timer mode allows you to capture over 8K-size images with exquisite detail for timelapse movie creation. The 45 megapixels also allow greater leeway in creating sharper 4K video by down-conversion, or adding pan and zoom effects within the frame in post-production using a computer to inject more dynamism into the finished piece. Thanks to the greater light-gathering efficiency of the backside illumination CMOS sensor structure, together with the advanced image processing of EXPEED 5, the D850 achieves a wider ISO sensitivity range from ISO 64-25600 (expandable to ISO 32 equivalent and to ISO 102400 equivalent). The resulting images feature low noise while maintaining detail even in the high ISO range. With the D850, you can create truly amazing timelapse movies.
Silent interval timer photography
When shooting time-lapse sequences outdoors for hours at night, you can focus on your shooting without worrying about shutter release noise or mechanical wear. The D850 addresses both of these issues with its silent interval timer photography function in live view mode, which drives the shutter electronically. The result is a silent shutter release that inflicts no stress on the mechanical drive. It also prevents mechanical vibrations that might cause image blur, meaning you'll maximize the potential of the camera's 45.7 megapixels. The silent interval timer function lets you shoot up to 9,999 frames.
Advanced new technology to extend low-light metering range
Capturing overnight star movement is a popular application of time-lapse videos, and the D850 makes it even easier. The exposure smoothing function, Nikon's unique feature, which reduces subtle exposure variance between frames in interval timer shooting, is further improved for the D850. Now it extends exposure metering capability beyond -3 EV and lets you shoot starry night skies using aperture-priority auto mode when employed with silent interval timer shooting mode. Photographers can now enjoy shooting star movements from midnight until dawn, when brightness changes significantly, in one continuous interval-timer sequence. This is impossible with manual exposure and opens up new opportunities to delight and impress.
In-camera RAW batch processing
Shooting in RAW gives greater leeway in post-production, letting photographers draw the most from the images they capture. Until now, however, processing RAW has always been extremely timeconsuming. The D850 resolves this issue by offering an incredibly convenient, in-camera RAW batch-processing feature, which enables you to quickly apply the same adjustments to selected images. You can save the original RAW files and processed JPEG files on one large-capacity XQD card, or else save the original on XQD and the JPEG on an SD card in the second slot, for easier data management.
Minimum interval setting of 0.5 seconds
When capturing scenes with conspicuous motion, such as fast-moving clouds or fog, even a 1 second interval time may result in a sequence that does not look smooth when turned into a time-lapse movie. The D850 now offers a minimum interval setting of just 0.5 second for interval timer shooting. This renders movements more smoothly, while giving you greater flexibility in achieving your creative intentions.
Nikon's first full-frame, 4K UHD video
The D850 lets you film magnificent 4K UHD/30p videos in full frame. You can capture more dramatic scenes by combining this with wide-angle NIKKOR lenses, which demonstrate high resolving power even around the periphery of the frame. It is also possible to simultaneously record uncompressed, broadcast quality 4:2:2 8-bit 4K UHD files on an external HDMI device. 4K UHD videos are also available in the DX-based movie format -- equivalent to super 35mm size -- while recording in MP4 format is possible in addition to the conventional MOV option.
x4 and x5 slow-motion movie in Full HD
The D850 helps create dramatic Full HD movies with its new in-camera slow-motion video. It can generate both x4 slow-motion videos (films at 120/100p and records at 30/25p) and x5 slow-motion videos (films at 120p and records at 24p) entirely in-camera -- great for creating drama out of moments.
Independent movie-shooting menu
The D850 is designed for multimedia shooters who consider stills and movies equally important. With that in mind, this camera sees Nikon introduce a dedicated movie-shooting menu in addition to the one for still photography. You can register different settings for video without changing those for stills, which makes it easier to switch between the two shooting modes. For example, shooting stills in Auto Picture Control is possible even immediately after filming in Flat. What's more, pressing the P button during movie recording gives you direct access to the movie-shooting settings, providing both convenience and efficiency during your shoot.
Improved highlight display
Highlight display using zebra patterns helps you confirm overblown highlights, and the D850 has improved this function to assist you further. It now lets you adjust the level of brightness, to be indicated between 180-255 depending on your needs. What's more, the zebra patterns come in two varieties, selectable according to the patterns and textures of your subjects.
When filming out of the studio, audio levels can escalate unexpectedly, causing distortion. The D850 incorporates an attenuator menu to avoid such accidental occurrences. When activated, it automatically reduces the microphone sensitivity to the appropriate level -- allowing smooth recording with clear sound.
Electronic vibration reduction
When shooting movies hand-held in Full HD or HD, the D850's electronic vibration reduction function reduces the effects of camera shake in the horizontal, vertical and rotational directions (centering on the lens). This is invaluable when limitations of time and location make it difficult to set up a tripod. Used in combination with NIKKOR's optical VR technology, the benefits are even more apparent.
Superior weather and dust resistant performance and a robust body
Working in environments such as tropical forests or desert, landscape photographers often expose their camera bodies to harsh conditions. Nikon has applied its stringently high standards for weather resistance and durability, renowned in the fields of photography and science alike, to the D850.
It has comprehensive weather- and dust-sealing applied to its joints and seams, and its top, rear and bottom covers, as well as the inside body structure, are made of robust magnesium alloy. It's a camera that allows you to work with confidence in a wide range of tough environments. Also, its redesigned grip is deeper and longer, making it easier to hold even over extended periods of time.
Durable, high-precision shutter
To ensure durability, the D850's shutter has been tested for 200,000 cycles while actually loaded in the camera. It's also designed to minimize the mechanical vibration that causes image blur. The D850 is the first Nikon D-SLR to adopt a shutter counter-balancer in its shutter drive, which travels upward during each shutter release to counteract the vibration caused by the front curtain's downward motion.
What's more, the camera's shutter monitor function calculates the duration between front- and rear-curtain movements every time the shutter is released, and automatically corrects any variance.
Button illumination and layout
The superb performance of the D850, such as its low noise at high ISO settings and wide detection range for AF/AE, encourages landscape photographers to venture out in the dark and create amazing images from challenging situations. The camera offers illuminated buttons on the rear left side and release mode dial, making it easier to change settings when shooting in the dark. Moreover, the buttons and dials are arranged in a convenient ergonomic layout to fit photographers' hands. The rear side now features a sub selector added in the same position as for the D5, to allow easier right-handed operation by photographers who use both models.
0.75x optical viewfinder
The D850 provides a wide field of view for easier subject confirmation with a 0.75x magnification for its optical viewfinder -- the highest ever offered by a Nikon FXformat D-SLR. The viewfinder has been redesigned to employ an aspherical lens and a new condenser lens with refined refraction, allowing for a slimmer body while keeping a sufficiently long eye point. Its high-contrast viewfinder information display uses organic EL display elements, making it easier to read even under bright sunlight.
3.2-in. 2359k-dot tilting touch monitor
Whether lowering the camera down for a macro shot or pointing upwards at a starry night sky, the D850's tilting LCD monitor makes it easier to shoot from difficult angles. The monitor opens smoothly even when the camera is mounted on a tripod and has the most extensive touch functionality found in any Nikon D-SLR camera to date. From changing menu settings to shooting to reviewing images, it brings a new level of convenience. And thanks to the monitor's 2359k-dot high-resolution display, you can easily check images and confirm focus in precise detail -- which is crucial when working with 45 megapixels -- by pinching out to enlarge.
