Manufacturer's Description

D850: Extreme resolution meets extreme speed.

When Nikon introduced the D800 and D800E, it set a new benchmark for DSLR image quality and super high resolution photography that approached medium format. Now, five years later, Nikon proudly introduces the next evolution in high resolution DSLRs, a camera that allows photographers to capture fast action in 45.7 megapixels of brilliant resolution. With remarkable advancements across the board—sensor design, autofocus, dynamic range, sensitivity, Speedlight control, battery life, shutter and mirror drive mechanisms, Silent Photography in Live-View mode, focus shift capability and more—this is quite possibly the most impressive, well-rounded DSLR yet.

Higher Resolution. Faster Speed. Greater Versatility.

Nikon's first back-side illuminated (BSI) full-frame sensor with no optical low-pass filter
At the heart of the D850 is a Nikon designed sensor like none before it—a back-side illuminated (BSI) FX-format full-frame CMOS image sensor with 45.7 megapixels and no optical low-pass filter. A marvel of ingenuity, it achieves extraordinary image quality, enhanced light gathering efficiency, faster data readout and truer color. And with such a dense array of pixels, there's virtually no risk of moiré.
  • Faster, richer, sharper processing

    Faster than EXPEED 4, EXPEED 5 quickly processes all 45.7 megapixels of data for lower noise, wider dynamic range, subtle tonal and textural details, high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 9 fps and full-frame 4K UHD movie recording.
  • Sensitive to every little detail

    The lower the ISO, the greater the dynamic range. Like the D810 before it, the D850 has the lowest base ISO of any DSLR or mirrorless camera—ISO 64 (expandable down to ISO 32).
  • Full frame as it was meant to be

    Nikon has been advancing the full frame format since the days of 35mm film photography with industry defining optics, legendary sharpness and the most impressive lens lineup available.

Precision at every turn

Flagship autofocus, metering and fast continuous shooting
  • Autofocus that keeps up

    The D850 uses the same field-proven ultra-accurate AF system as the flagship D5. With 153 focus points, 99 cross-type sensors and a dedicated AF processor, the D850 delivers all of its 45.7 MP performance with NIKKOR lenses. Shoot in low light to -4 EV. Capturing the most elusive subjects will feel like second nature with the D850.
  • Focus in near darkness

    Autofocus down to -4 EV lets you capture in low-light situations. Suddenly, fast NIKKOR primes and zooms can handle even lower light than before.
  • Greater frame coverage

    153 focus points with 99 cross-type sensors㬋 of which support f/8, a must for many sports and wildlife shooters—providing 130% more frame coverage than D800/D800E or D810. Acquire and track with unwavering accuracy.
  • Locked-on subject tracking

    Nikon's exclusive AF engine uses parallel processing with a sequence control microcomputer to realize high AF performance for fast-moving subjects even during high-speed shooting.
  • Nuance in high resolution

    With up to 7 FPS at 45.7 MP, the D850 can capture the decisive frame of a bride walking down the aisle or a fashion model's fluid pose. For nailing the shot at a high-speed race or of A-listers on the red carpet, try using the optional MB-D18 battery pack and shoot full resolution up to 9 FPS.
  • Shoot to your heart's content

    Even at 45.7 MP of resolution, the D850 captures up to 51 consecutive shots in 14-bit RAW (NEF) or up to 170 frames in 12-bit lossless compressed RAW (NEF). Hold down the shutter button and capture shot after stunning shot.

Versatile like you

Performance enhancements inspired by photographer feedback
  • Streamline your workflow

    Seamlessly switch between RAW sizes of Large (45.7 MP), Medium (25.6 MP) and Small (11.4 MP), whichever fits your need or workflow. Save time with RAW batch processing right in the camera.
  • Connect with your vision

    Only an SLR camera offers a true view through the lens, making the camera an extension of your vision. The D850 has Nikon's highest magnification optical viewfinder ever, 0.75x. See the effects of NIKKOR lenses in real time—bokeh, fisheye, perspective control and more.
  • Do not disturb

    When silence is golden—shooting golf, press conferences, weddings and more—turn on Silent Photography in Live View and capture without sound or mechanical vibration. In Mode 1, shoot for up to 6 FPS continuous at 45.7 MP. In Mode 2, shoot approx. 8.6-megapixel pictures in DX image area at approx. 30 FPS for up to 3 seconds.
  • Tilt and touch

    The tilting touchscreen LCD screen makes it easy to get the shot, even from high or low angles. Use Touch AF, Touch Shutter control and navigate menus, playback and more as if you were using a smartphone. Zoom in during Live View shooting and use the new Pinpoint AF to put focus right where you want it.

4K UHD Movie Quality in Full Frame Glory

Cinematic movie recording
  • A multimedia powerhouse

    Multimedia content creators rejoice. You are now free to record 16:9 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) in full frame glory using the total width and resolution of the D850's back-side illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor. Take advantage of the large sensor size for clean output at high ISO and for shooting with zero crop factor with any full-frame NIKKOR lenses, including wide and ultra-wide angle lenses.
  • Slow it down

    Transform dramatic moments into dazzling fluid slow-motion sequences. Record 4x (shoot at 120p, playback at 30/25p) or 5x (shoot at 120p, playback at 24p) slow-motion at 1080p.
  • Quickly confirm focus

    Confirm your manual focus with Focus Peaking. Select high, medium or low sensitivity and red, yellow, blue or white highlights. Operates in manual focus mode with AF or compatible manual NIKKOR lenses.

Time-lapse in breathtaking resolution

4K and 8K Ultra HD time-lapse with smooth exposure transitions
  • 4K time-lapse in camera

    Create entire 4K UHD time-lapse sequences right in the camera—an exclusive to Nikon DSLRs. Use Silent Live View Mode to bypass the mechanical shutter and mirror movement, saving thousands of shutter cycles and improving the D850's already outstanding battery performance.
  • 8K time-lapse using Interval Timer

    Render jaw-dropping 8K time-lapse movies by shooting sequences of up to 9,999 full-size stills, again using Silent Live View Mode. Using the D850's Interval Timer Mode allows you to capture over 8K-size images with exquisite detail for time-lapse movie6 creation. And with no shutter vibration, your sequences will be tack-sharp.

The most well-rounded Nikon yet

Next-generation features to help you perform at your peak

  • Control in the dark

    Illuminated buttons make control easy during star-trail shoots, wedding receptions, concerts or anywhere the light is fading.
  • No shortage of memory

    The D850 offers two card slots, one XQD and one SD. The XQD card slot easily handles the camera's incredible high resolution files as well as burst shooting capacity and keeps the buffer cleared. Using both XQD and SD, set the SD slot for back up, overflow or just as extra storage space.
  • Built for the elements

    Built with rugged magnesium alloy and carbon fiber materials, and featuring dust and water-drop resistance you'll have peace of mind even when shooting in extreme environments.
  • Optimal exposure in an instant

    The camera's 180K RGB Advanced Scene Recognition System pulls it all together and ensures each shot—whether using available light or a Speedlight—has optimal exposure, referencing a database of thousands of photos.
  • Square (1:1) image size

    Compose with shading in the viewfinder around the image area and shoot beautiful 30.3-megapixel 1:1 square images right in the camera—great for weddings and portraits. Also select from FX (full-frame), DX, 1:2 and 5:4 aspect ratios.
  • Define your style
