Im­pres­sive suc­ces­sor

Nikon an­nounces 45.7MP D850.

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE -

Nikon launched its lat­est full-frame DSLR cam­era – the D850 – in Malaysia last month. Like its pre­de­ces­sor, the D750, the Nikon D850 fea­tures a rel­a­tively com­pact body de­sign, but has been im­bued with im­proved dust and wa­ter-drop re­sis­tance, mak­ing it a cam­era that is a lit­tle bet­ter suited to the el­e­ments.

Spec­i­fi­ca­tion-wise, the D850 is fit­ted with a new 39.5 x 23.9 mm FX for­mat CMOS sen­sor, and is ca­pa­ble of cap­tur­ing pho­tos at a pixel res­o­lu­tion of 45.7MP. This also al­lows the D850 to de­liver RAW im­age files that can be fit­ted into an ar­ray of sizes, in­clud­ing FX mode, DX, Square, 5:4 or 1:2 as­pect ra­tios.

High-speed, con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing is still a main­stay with the D850, with the abil­ity to cap­ture up to nine frames per sec­ond (fps) with a sin­gle press of the shut­ter but­ton.

Fur­ther­more, the D850 also has an ISO range be­tween 64 and 25,600, which can be ex­panded be­tween 32 and 102,400. It is also ca­pa­ble of shoot­ing video in 4K res­o­lu­tion. Specif­i­cally, it cap­tures stan­dard and time-lapse videos in 4K res­o­lu­tion, as well as slow mo­tion videos in Full HD.

The D850 is now avail­able at all au­tho­rized Nikon re­sellers, with the body re­tail­ing for RM15,498. A bun­dle with a kit lens is in con­sid­er­a­tion, but at the time of writ­ing, Nikon did not spec­ify as to when such a bun­dle would be made avail­able in Malaysia.
