tecno Ad

Nikon corporation finally released a new Professional DSLR — the Nikon D850. It is the successor of Nikon D810 and a straight competitor to the Canon 5D mark IV. The official announcement of camera development was made last month on Nikon’s 100 Anniversary with a special Time lapse footage on Nikon’s official YouTube channel.

The Camera is expected to go on sale from early September with a price of US$3299 for the body. The D850 comes with a 45.7MP BSI CMOS sensor with 7 fps / 9fps shooting without and with battery grip respectively. The Camera now can record 4k using full sensor width, unlike 5D IV which records 4k at crop sensor mode. It has 153-point AF system used by the D5 with the latest image-processing engine, EXPEED 5. Another feature that would tempt the Canon 5D IV users is that the ability to record 1080p at 120fps and has a 3.2″ tilting touchscreen with 2.36M-dot (1024×768 pixel) LCD. The Camera also comes with built in WIFI but with no GPS.

Early Impressions:

Personally, I use the Canon 5D Mark IV but looking at the specs at least on papers, the Nikon D850 really have caught my attention making me think about selling the Canon 5D IV. But I shall wait to see some in depth review about the camera’s actual performance and quality before making any quick decision.
