Nikon Australia has announced September availability of the D850, a 45.7-megapixel CMOS sensor FX-format camera, and successor to the popular D810.
The camera uses the same 152-point (99 cross type) autofocus system used in the D5, allowing it to track high-speed moments.
The camera can also record 4K Ultra HD video, and capture 8K time-lapse footage.
‘The D850 offers impressive capabilities with a powerful synthesis of high-resolution and high-speed from the EXPEED 5 image-processing engine and CMOS sensor, silent photography in both photo and video modes, and a wider viewfield, giving modern storytellers more versatility,’ said James Murray, managing director of Nikon Australia. ‘Engineered with this line-up of features and performance enhancements to our FX-format range, this camera truly is a showcase of our dedication to delivering superior photo and video imaging quality that caters to our diverse range of photographers.’
Other features include:
– ISO 64 – 25600 sensitivities
– 3.2-inch touch screen LCD monitor;
– XQD and SD card slots;
– A ‘silent photography feature’
– 0.75x magnification viewfinder;
– Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Snapbridge connectivity.
Local pricing is not yet available, but Nikon Rumours sourced an Australian catalogue which has it listed at $5400. It’s worth noting that the American RRP is US$3,300, roughly $4620 including GST, which means – if that local pricing is fair dinkum – there’s a big local premium!
