The Nikon D850 features a 45.7 megapixel, back-illuminated, full frame CMOS sensor - extraordinary image quality and impressive performance are just the beginning with this impressive DSLR.
EXPEED 5 Image Processing quickly processes all 45.7 megapixels of data for low noise, wide dynamic range and a subtle tone. Allows high-speed continuous shooting at approx 9fps and full frame 4K UHD movie recording. The lower the ISO, the greater the dynamic range. The D850 has the lowest base ISO of any DSLR or mirrorless camera—ISO 64 (expandable down to ISO 32). With a continuous shooting speed of 7 fps or 9 fps using the optional MB-D18 battery pack with EN-EL 18b/a Lithium-ion Battery, the D850 can capture those perfect moments in action at it’s full 45.7 MP resolution.
With 153 focus points, 99 cross-type sensors and a dedicated AF processor, the D850 combines the best of AF technology so that you can be assured that your high resolution images are as sharp as can be. Record 16:9 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) in full frame glory using the total width of the D850’s back-side illuminated CMOS sensor. Create astonishing 4K time-lapse movies right in-camera or exquisitely-detailed 8K time-lapse sequences of up to 9,999 full-size stills using D850’s Interval Timer Mode.
Transform dramatic moments into dazzling fluid slow-motion sequences. Record 4x (shoot at 120p, playback at 30/25p) or 5x (shoot at 120p, playback at 24p) slow-motion at 1080p. The tilting touchscreen LCD makes it even easier to get the perfect shot, from both low and high angles.
