The D850's fast, extremely high-resolution FX format sensor offers an effective resolution of 45.7 megapixels for detailed 45.4 MP files. Printing of extremely high-resolution images in extra-large formats. Real full-frame films in 4K. The back-exposed CMOS image sensor does without an optical low-pass filter and has micro lenses integrated in the chip as well as an anti-reflective coating. Incident light hits the photodiodes more efficiently, giving you extraordinary detail and unique dynamic range. And the 153-field AF system adopted from the D5 provides the razor-sharp focusing and coverage you need for full-frame shooting at extremely high resolutions.
Breathtaking speed at 45.4 MP:
With this ultimate combination of speed, detail and precision, award-winning shots are possible. The continuous shooting rate is up to 9 frames/s at full resolution using optional accessories. Phenomenal autofocus.
Capture critical seconds with this unique combination of performance and endurance. The D850 records up to 7 frames/sec. With the optional multifunction handle MB-D18 and inserted battery of the EN-EL18 series (like D4, D4S, D5) even 9 frames/s are possible. This applies to full resolution images, including RAW (NEF). With the standard EN-EL15a battery, 1840 images are possible when charged (in "single-frame" shooting mode, according to CIPA standards). A special AF processor provides phenomenal scene recognition for fast shooting series: Even in difficult lighting conditions, you can follow fast-moving small subjects with remarkable precision. The autofocus system with 153 spot sizes incl. 99 cross sensors (as in the D5) works with unique precision and high light sensitivity up to -3 LW in all spot sizes. The center field of view even offers a sensitivity down to -4 EV (ISO 100, 20 °C), and the double memory card slot lets you use a UHS-II SD card and an XQD card at the same time.
Creative flexibility. Endurance. Precision. The D850 not only shows convincing performance - it completely redefines perfection. No matter what RAW image size - whether L (45.4 MP), M (25.6 MP), or S (11.4 MP) - you benefit from outstanding imaging performance. Both the camera and the optional multifunctional handle MB-D18 have an elaborate seal against weather influences. So you are prepared for everything on the road. It is also the first D-SLR ever to feature an integrated focus stacking mode for exceptionally sharp images with enormous depth of field.
Increase the frequency. Don't bother waiting. The D850 provides optimized workflows thanks to high-speed data transfer and WLAN support.
The camera's USB 3.0 port allows fast transfer of large amounts of data, which is ideal for tethered shooting. If you need an ultra-fast wireless or Ethernet connection, you can combine the D850 with the optional WT-7A. With this wireless LAN adapter, files can be sent to an FTP server or computer at speeds of up to 866.7 Mbps. You can also quickly upload high-quality JPEG files to your social media stream or secure online gallery via SnapBridge. This is especially useful when you want to show a customer on the other side of the world the progress of a shoot. SnapBridge also makes it easy to geotag images.…more
