Nikon announces 45.7MP D850.
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.
