On its 100th anniversary, the camera giant has announced it has a new full-frame FX-format DSLR in the works. Yes, the Nikon D850 will succeed D810.
In a slightly unusual move, the company didn’t release any actual details about the camera, though a teaser video released at the same time promises an 8K time-lapse function. At this point, we have no idea what it will look either.
“This powerful new FX-format digital SLR camera is engineered with a range of new technologies, features and performance enhancements that are a direct result of feedback from users over the years,” says Nikon. “The D850 will exceed the expectations of the vast range of photographers that seek the high resolution and high-speed capabilities that only a Nikon of this caliber complemented by NIKKOR lenses can offer.”
The rumored Nikon D850 specs, formerly-known as D820
It appears that the specs list of the DSLR camera has not suffered any changes since the last time we spoke about it. The Nikon D850 will feature a 46-megapixel full-frame image sensor without an optical low-pass filter. The specs list will also include improved low and high ISO performance, a new and improved version of SnapBridge, dual card slots (one SD and one XQD), a tiltable LCD screen and the same AutoFocus system as the Nikon D5.
- Nikon D850 is rumored to have a 46.5MP full frame CMOS sensor.
- Nikon D850 will have same Autofocus system as in Nikon D5
- Improved low and high ISO compared to Canon and better than the D810
