Nikon is celebrating a centenary of its existence this year and wants to dedicate some top-end cameras to its customers marking these 100 years of serving the photography sector. The latest release from the company, the Nikon D850 Full-Frame DSLR is in line with Nikon’s objectives of meeting the expectation of the professional photographers.

Based on the features and specs of the new D850 DSLR, it would appear that Nikon considers this its flagship offering.

The sensor on this camera will be a 45.7 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and Nikon has eliminated the optical low-pass filter in between to allow for the photos to be delivered in as sharp a quality as possible. The camera will also come with Nikon’s EXPEED 5 image processor. This enables the photographer to go on shooting still images at seven frames per second (fps).

Nikon has kept in view that there are also photographers who expect to use the video capabilities of the DSLR having invested a future in it.

The Nikon D850 can shoot 4K videos at a reasonable speed of 30fps and if the conventional format of 1080p is chosen then the videos can be shot at 120fps.

The camera has been fitted with a sensor that offers a wide ISO range: 64-25,600 (expandable down to ISO 32 and up to ISO 102,400). Other features include the 153-point autofocus system with 99 cross-type autofocus points. It should therefore provide a wholesome experience to the photographers.

Nikon has also added Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support to the D850 DSLR so that you can smoothly transfer your images and videos to your other devices like your smartphone or a PC.

There is also the in-house technology, the SnapBridge feature that lets you do the transfers even when the camera is in the ‘Off’ mode. The display panel is 3.2 inches in size.

The Nikon D850 comes with two memory card slot options. One can accept XQD cards and the other SD cards. With these and a host of other top-end features, this camera is bound to offer stiff competition to the other leading DSLRs in the market from Canon and even Sony.

The pricing by Nikon for this new flagship camera is also on similar lines. The D850 Camera costs $3, 299.95 in retail. This would mean around Rs 2.25 lacs in India. The actual sale of these cameras will begin in September.
