    Best DSLR on the planet

    I have owned 3 Nikon Hi-Res dslrs the D800, D810 and now the D850. Every model has been a leap in tech but what Nikon has done now is truly stunning. I just love this camera and battery grip! And it shoots 4k views and 8k time lapse. Key Specifications: 45.7MP BSI CMOS sensor 7 fps continuous shooting with AE/AF (9 with battery grip and EN-EL18b battery) 153-point AF system linked to 180,000-pixel metering system UHD 4K video capture at up to 30p from full sensor width 1080 video at up to 120p, recorded as roughly 1/4 or 1/5th speed slow-mo 4:2:2 8-bit UHD uncompressed output while recording to card 1 XQD slot and 1 UHS II-compliant SD slot Battery life rated at 1840 shots 3.2" tilting touchscreen with 2.36M-dot (1024×768 pixel) LCD Illuminated controls 19.4MP DX crop (or 8.6MP at 30fps for up to 3 sec) SnapBridge full-time Bluetooth LE connection system with Wi-Fi Advanced time-lapse options (including in-camera 4K video creation) High resolution The use of a backside illuminated (BSI) sensor means that the light collecting elements of the sensor are closer to the surface of the chip. This should not only increase the efficiency of the sensor (improving low light performance) but should also be expected to make the pixels near the edges of the sensor better able to accept light approaching with high angles of incidence, improving peripheral image quality. Like the D810 before it, the D850 continues to offer an ISO 64 mode, that allows it to tolerate more light in bright conditions. The D850 promises the same dynamic range advantage as the D810, meaning it should be able to compete with the medium format sensors used in the likes of the Fujifilm GFX 50S and Pentax 645Z. High Speed In addition to the increased speed, the D850 also gains the full AF capabilities of the company's flagship sports camera: the D5. This includes all the hardware: AF module, metering sensor and dedicated AF processor, as well as the full range of AF modes and configuration options, which should translate to comparable focus performance combined with high resolution. Given the D5 possessed one of the best AF systems we've ever seen and could continue to offer that performance in a wide range of conditions and shooting scenarios with minimal need for configuration, this is an exciting prospect. As part of this system, the D850 gains the automated system for setting an AF Fine Tune value. It only calibrates the lens based on the central AF point and for a single distance, but it's a simple way to ensure you're getting closer to your lenses' full capabilities, which is handy given you'll now be able to scrutinize their performance with 46MP of detail. It just blows me away every time I use it.

    Produces Amazingly High Quality Images

    This is a very sophisticated and advanced camera capable of making pictures in modes ranging from "point-and-shoot" to images with highly customized settings. It's important to know this is a big and heavy camera but the features make it a worthwhile companion (for what I want to do). Enthusiastic reviews on the Internet pretty much some up the camera, so I won't take up space repeating what is already written. Anyhow, I am an advanced photographer shooting art (i.e. street photography), landscape, and table top work. There comes a point in which very high resolution is warranted because you can crop as needed with minimal loss of image quality. Somehow Nikon engineers managed to cram all the good stuff into a single camera. As with any camera, there are limits. However, these limits do not impact my style of work. Another aspect of the camera I wanted was the feature to produce images for focus stacking. It's tricky and needs a lot of thought. At this point there are many fine cameras available today and lots of arguments about which is better. I pretty much ignore these discussions [arguments] because my choice is based on my style of photography. FWIW, this camera is paired with a Nikon D750 (which is now my backup camera). As background, I've been shooting since the '70s (up to 11 x 14 inch large format).

    Simply Outstanding, revolutionary

    Just got it today via FedEx. Tooled around this evening with the lovely light we had here. Colors are vivid and accurate, I have a D5, might be selling it for a second d850. I'm a wedding and fashion/portrait shooter, do some sports now and then. The auto focus was dead on with my 105mm 1.4. Didn't calibrate didn't need to. Focus ability is every thing to me. It's got to be sharp and quick, keeper rate will really go up with this. The view finder is huge and makes it easy to see your focus and composition. Don't really care about the resolution, anything over 16 to 20 is a good enough for most work. I will shoot at 45 when I need to crop and for large group pictures. I still need to dial it in but noise at high iso was nice and low. Really making it hard to justify the d5... Except that d5 can see in the dark. If your serious about your photography and pleasing clients this is the camera to own. Canon is going to be scrambling. Nikon loves to drop a big one every now and then, this is going to be like the D3 revolution all over again.

    I'm a Professional Photographer, I'm glade I got my D850 2 days after the realse day, even though I've got a weird email saying my order is backorder now and I should expect it in November, any way I have been using it for a week now almost every day, I'm happy so far with the results I almost tried all the new features, first it was easy to access right out of the box, especially for me because I used d810, the tilting touch screen is so useful and handy and similar to my phone, fast processing, the pictures resolution is astonishing, the 4k video and the slow mo is just amazing, silent 4k time-lapse video shooting, live view silent shooting up to 30 f/s in DX mode, pressing the shutter for 1 sec and there are 30 pic were taken. and of course the WIFI and bluetooth capability is very helpful and a huge plus..

    GREAT CAMERA,THANK YOU BESTBUY

    FIRST I WANT TO THANK BESTBUY FOR GREAT SERVICE. I PREORDERED MY NIKON D850 ON THE FIRST DAY OF ITS RELEASE. I WAS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT MY ORDER WHEREAS NIKON THEMSELVES APOLOGIZED FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO FILL ALL THE COUSTOMER ORDERS. ON SEPT 7TH THE OFFICAL RELEASE DATE MY ORDER KEPT SAYING PROCESSING. ON SEPT 8TH I GOT AN EMAIL FROM BESTBUY THAT MY ORDER HAD SHIPPED. I WAS EXPECTING IT TO SHIP GROUND AND POSSIABLE DELIVERED ON MONDAY OR TUESDAY. AFTER CHECKING MY TRACKING NUMBER. TO MY ELATION BESTBUY SHIPPED IT OVERNIGHT EXPRESS AND I HAD MY BABY IN MY HANDS BY 10AM SEPT 9TH. GREAT JOB BEST BUY AS FOR THE CAMERA IT'S GREAT SO FAR ITS TOO EARLY TO GIVE A FULL EVALUTION. BUT I CAN SAY THIS I HAVE BEEN SHOOTING AT 12800 ISO AND GETTING CLEAN SHARP PHOTOS WAY BETTER THAN MY D810 . THE FOCUS IS EXTREAMLY FAST AND SPOT ON. THE DYNAMIC RANGE IS EXCELLENT. THE TOUCH SCREEN IS A PLEASURE FOR SCROLLING THROUGHT THE MENU. IN LIVE VIEW THE TOUCH AF/TO FOCUS,SHUTTER APPLICATION DOESN'T SEEM TO BE IMPLIMENTED AS WELL. AS OLYMPUS AND PANASONICS TOUCH AF/SHUTTER . THE CAMERA HUNTS SOMETIME. IT SEEMS TO BE A HIT OR MISS TYPE OF SITUATION. I EXPECT THIS WILL BE RESOLVED WITH A FUTURE UPDATE. AS I SAID EARLY IT'S REALLY TO EARLLY TO EARLY TO GIVE AN IN DEPTH OVERALL EVALUATION OF THE CAMERA. AT THE TIME OF THE REVIEW I HAVN'T HAD THE CAMERA 24 HOURS. BUT I HAVE TAKEN OVER 20O SHOTS AND I,,M LOVING IT . NICE UPGRADE FROM MY NIKON D810 P.S ITS ABILITY TO TAKE PICTURES IN LOW LIGHT SITUATIONS IS SUPERB.

    Best of all worlds

    I've owned the camera since it came out and I must say that it is by far the best I've used. I owned the D810 and D500 before it and it flawlessly combines everything I LOVED about those cameras and adds up to something even greater. The focus system is incredible. The low light quality is 2nd to none. I've printed 8.5x11 pictures shot at iso 12800 and people didn't believe the iso they were shot at. The view finder is HUGE and even wearing glasses I can see EVERYTHING without a problem. I also LOVE that I can shoot in a crop mode and the view finder will actually black out everything not being used. Shooting 1x1 aspect ratio through the view finder is a different experience than cropping after the fact and it changes the way you compose. The color is flawless. The new auto daylight white balance is very handy. I've found ZERO about the camera I don't like.

    Great professional camera. Beautiful "rich" files

    At this price point ($3100.00) you can't buy a better all-purpose camera. Skin tones are beautiful. Landscapes are colorful; easily capturing the rich beauty of the scene. Nine frames per second and great "tracking" capability allows you to capture the moment regarding action shots. Most importantly the huge, beautiful files allow for tremendous post processing. Both shadows and highlights can easily be refined in Photoshop. Most of the time the files are "spot on" and you don't need much post processing. For the past seventeen years I have owned many high end Canon, Sony, Olympus, Fugi and Nikon cameras and, by far, the Nikon D850 with the new 24-70 VR lens, has given me the best image quality ever. If you can afford the price, in my opinion, this camera is the best model out there!

    Outsanding Tech...Poor Build Quality

    Posted
    Nani

    I received my D850 (body only) during April 2018. It was a beautiful camera and the technical aspects were outstanding, however, the build felt cheap compared to my Nikon D500, D700, D4, Olympus OMD EM1 Mk II, and Sony A7R III. In fact, it felt like a toy compared to the "tank" like builds of the Sony A7R III and Olympus EM1 Mk II. Likewise, there is no comparison between the builds of the Nikon D700, D4 and D850. The D850 may have a titanium base, but the cover is made of cheap plastic and the doors and hinges won't last or take any forms of abuse. I thought the battery door would fall off after a few actuations. Long story short, I immediately returned the D850. I was very disappointed with the build quality of the D850.
