    Mirrorless

    This camera is phenomenal! I've admired it for years, and I finally decided to buy one now that they are more affordable. It's everything I imagined and so much more. As a wildlife photographer, I love the fact that this camera has a massive 45.7-megapixel sensor. This allows me to crop my images down to a fraction of their original size and still enjoy razor-sharp detail. Next, the autofocus is wonderful when photographing moving subjects such as birds in flight. As someone who has been using a mirrorless camera for the last year or so, the super-long battery life on the D850 was a breath of fresh air. With the optional battery grip, you can get over 3,000 pictures without running out of juice. I've been a hobbyist Nikon photographer for more than a decade, so I was able to jump right in and start getting great pictures immediately. This camera is not well-suited for beginners, but you won't be disappointed in the D850 if you are a serious hobbyist or even a professional photographer. Finally, a word for those who may be considering going with a mirrorless camera instead: I have a Z50, and it's a great little camera. I wanted to make the jump to full-frame, and for a while, I seriously considered upgrading to the Z6 or even the Z7. For me, the main advantage of mirrorless cameras is the electronic viewfinder; what you see is exactly what you'll get in the final photograph. The d850 is my first DSLR, and I'm having to learn that my pictures won't look exactly like what I see through the viewfinder. However, there are some drawbacks to mirrorless as well: drastically inferior battery life, slower autofocus, and more expensive lenses just to name a few. I was also bothered by the fact that mirrorless cameras are unlikely to hold their value over time. The Z6 and Z7 have now been replaced by the Z6ii and the Z7ii, significantly eroding their resale value. Rather than buying a mid-range mirrorless camera that may soon be overshadowed by a newer model, I decided to get the best DSLR ever made - and I haven't regretted it for a second.

    A legendary camera, I am hesitant to move to mirrorless, why with this spot on focus especially with 70-200 mm fl 2.8, no hiccups, I am not a professional photographer , rather I am a physician and this is my hobby, working this beast to its paces is a breeze…! I hope Nikon does not kill this great DSLR and I really wish for the D870 , I know it is a long shot but this is my hope. although deep inside I know they are shifting to mirrorless leaving DSLR behind, sad but true, If so it will be the last great DSLR Nikon ever made….! and I am enjoying every click of it…!!

    The only cons to this camera so far are file sizes, difference in memory card slots and the proce obviously. I wish the slots were of the same type. Everything else is a pro and a major upgrade from my 2 previous bodies the D750 and D7200. The autofocus system in this camera is like nothing I have ever used before, customization of Fn buttons and stuff is nearly endless. And 9fps with the grip and larger EN-EL18 battery, WOW!

    Upgrading From The Nikon D810. Changed all the settings to match with my old D810, and was in awe from the very first shoot I took. I'm in love all over again, wish I didn't take so long to get it, but was hoping a D880/D900 was on the way.

    I having been debating for many years what camera to upgrade up to from my Nikon d300s. After watching and reading hundreds of reviews, there was no doubt that the D850 was the answer. I shot my first wedding with it within days of receiving it, and I was ecstatic at the quality of the images, the amazing colors, and the ability with low light. There’s still so much more to learn and explore, but I’m very happy with my purchase. The only issue I had was when I went to download my raw files to Lightroom- it wasn’t compatible. I had to uninstall and reinstall Lightroom, and that did the trick.

    Absolutely awesome camera! I made the jump from using my iPhone 11 Pro and at first it was a little intimidating but there are plenty of useful tips and training out there. I wanted to take a giant leap from 2 megapixels in a great phone camera and wanted to be able to use the kind of lenses that would capture wildlife in fine detail for work and hobby. I am so pleased with this camera!!!

    Yeah this camera has come a long way from my Nikon FE2 back in the day with just knowing aperture and shutter speeds and what type of film to use … I thought I had a lot of options with my Nikon D2x 10 Mega pixels … I am so happy I upgraded and still learning all what this camera can do by watching instructional Youube videos.

    Amazing camera. We upgraded from a d5100. I thought the 5100 was taking great pictures, but I was wrong. They were good, the 850 is perfect for wildlife capture, which is the majority of what we do.

    I absolutely love this camera! The quality of the images produced is outstanding! Low light capability is great! The images up to around ISO 4000 aren’t too noisy. ISO 6400 is ok. I personally don’t shoot above ISO 8000 because of the deterioration of the quality of the detail in the images. But that is my personal preference.

    Huge Upgrade from D810

    Posted .

    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..

    The level of detail I can resolve with this camera is unreal. I pair this with a Nikkor 50 f1.8 and a Nikkor 200-500 f5.6. Autofocus is excellent, as expected with camera sharing the system with a D5.
