9fps continuous shooting
This is the most tantalising feature. If the reports are correct, this frame rate will only be achieved using the D850’s optional battery grip, otherwise the frame rate will be 7fps. Nevertheless, battery grips are a popular choice for pros, and 9fps is extremely high for a camera with this kind of resolution. Equally exciting is the D850’s anticipated 50-shot Raw buffer capacity – exceptional performance for a camera that can capture images at this resolution and continuous shooting speed.
