I have noticed many professional photographers usually carry two cameras with them. Most photographers using Nikon DSLR camera let’s check why Nikon is the best choice for them.
Photographer wants a camera that has super high resolution and high speed shooting together. But now it is Nikon D850, which is a good combination of both. That is why it got great hype for the company’s announcements in early 2019 and when finally the cover came off it looks incredibly promising.
It has some brilliant features which can satisfy every photographer’s needs. From 45.7 MP sensor, ISO range of 64000-25600 to 153 autofocus system and many more amazing technical specs made it an all-rounder in the market. This review will discuss some of its mind-blowing features in detail. Let’s have a look :
Nikon has engineered once again a very strong camera. Which feels extremely well-constructed. After talking about its robustness, this is built around a magnesium alloy chassis. It,s fully weatherproof to prevent any kind of moisture. It is also sealed so that dust and dirt cannot penetrate through the body and damaging the internals. On this Nikon DSLR D850, you will not find the pop-up flash because they decided to take it off.
Though it was useful on the D810. You will not be able to identify the difference between D810 and D850 from the front side. However, if you hold it in your hand you will surely feel the difference of the grip. The grip is a little deeper than the D810. For a serious photographer, the key factors are comfort and a good feel. Normally a photographer spends hours with the camera so feeling comfortable is important and on that point, the D850 really excels.
Viewfinder and screen:
Nikon DSLR D850 has constructed with a tilting touchscreen. The screen is the same 2.36 inch LCD. It can be tilted up and down for waist-level shooting. The angle of tilt is good for any kind of shooting. The way the touch screen can be used now to change menu settings or browse is better than D500. The viewfinder is impressive as the screen. Its 0.75x magnification and 100% frame coverage it offers a very pleasant view. The viewfinder has no lag, very short blackout time. It has an option to prevent any light leakage problems during long exposures.
Autofocus & silent shooting :
The Nikon D850 is no exception than the other Nikon’s professional SLR in terms of putting fast and accurate focusing performance. It has a Multi-cam 20k autofocus sensor module which helps to focus faster than you thought it might be. One of the most impressive action is it works pretty perfectly in very poor lighting conditions. It is very challenging to track moving subjects but with this camera, you can do that without facing any problem. There is an autofocus custom settings menu where you can refine AF settings to suit your way of shooting.
You can speed up or down blocked shot AF respond and tell the camera with lock-on settings. There is given an option to reduce the number of selectable AF points also a back button to setup from the AF activation submenu. Nikon tried to dampen the sound of its mirror slap on other DSLR cameras,s previously. In this D850, Nikon has introduced an electrical shutter that is completely silent, not even make the vibration noise to take images when live view mode is on.
Nikon D850- performance:
You will be astonished to see Nikon D850 camera’s performance. You can use this SLR to shoot in many different environments. You will be completely blown away by the detailing. The high resolution, fast focus speed, and tilt- angel screen you can capture the shot much easier than any previous one. And the crystal clear rear display with its responsive touch control color rendition is excellent for check the result. If you are someone who doesn’t so familiar with the touchscreen but still you are going to love this Nikon D850. Because it is so easy to navigate the menu.
Nikon D850-Video & Resolution:
The Nikon D850 SLR is capable of capturing sensational movie footage. In a maximum 29mins 59 sec record time, this camera is able to record (3840*2160) at 30fps and full HD (1920*1080) at up to 60fps. Its 4k and 8k time –lapse capabilities make it apart from other cameras. When you set up the interval and shooting time you get a visual of how much space the time-lapse will take. Creating the high-resolution time-lapse footage will consume lots of battery charge. This camera has such a high resolution. The D850 offers an ISO 64 mode.
Nikon-850 Noise :
To make the best result at high ISO you need to shoot in raw and you will be impressed by this Nikon D850 SLR camera’s performance. ISO up to 12,800 the fine detail of a Nikon DSLR D850 image can be restored. You might notice in a close examination of files that noise-free results in between ISO 100-800. However, at ISO 51,200 and ISO 25,600, the noise becomes so imposing. So you most probably avoid these settings.
Nikon- 850 features:
Nikon D850 has some jaw-dropping features which I already discussed few on the above. It has 153 autofocus points which include auto-area,3D color tracking, and the option of selecting the number of the focus point. It has the metering sensor which is inherited from D5, this sensor is used for face detection in order to subject tracking through the autofocus system. Nikon D850 has two reduced image size option so that the huge 8256*5504 pixel files cannot block the storage.
With this option, you can change the image size from large to medium. However, the D850 will record a 6192*4128pixel file with the small settings to 4128*2752pixel. This SLR has a built-in interval meter and dx crop mood which automatically selected. The videographer will also be happy to see some design in its body.

Those of you who describe the Nikon d850 SLR as the game-changer, they were true. Because it is one of the most dynamic cameras on the market. This camera is suitable for all genres of photography like the wedding, wildlife, landscape, portrait, architecture, etc. Nikon hasn’t disappointed the slightest to its customer after a long wait. All kinds of photographers will get surprised by their performance. Particularly the new 45.7 million pixels full-frame CMOS sensor, its low light capabilities at high ISO, and high resolution with high speed will blow their minds.
Not only all these features but the AF response is also good even in the lowest light condition and with the fastest subjects. The tilting touchscreen, video capabilities, and snap bridge connectivity didn’t perform faultlessly and was not always reliable. So I do feel these areas could have been better. Nevertheless, the D850 is a versatile camera no doubt. Nikon appears to finally be back on track with this sensational SLR. You are going to agree with me on this matter. So don,t late for your set. Hope you got why photographer like Nikon DSLR camera.
