AUT­O­FO­CUS SYS­TEM

Digital Photograper - - Group Test -

In­side the D850 is the same 153-point aut­o­fo­cus (AF) sys­tem as is in Nikon’s flag­ship cam­era, the D5. This means that the cen­tre point is sen­si­tive down to -4EV while the re­main­ing points are sen­si­tive down to -3EV. Fur­ther­more, 99 of the points are cross-type and there­fore bet­ter able to de­tect a sub­ject than lin­ear points.

In con­tin­u­ous aut­o­fo­cus mode the

D850 can be set to use all 153 points, one point or groups of 9, 25 or 72. There’s also Nikon’s group-area AF and 3D-track­ing.

We found the AF sys­tem ex­tremely ef­fec­tive, get­ting quick-mov­ing sub­jects sharp in low light. How­ever, the smaller the area you can keep over the sub­ject, the bet­ter the chance of get­ting it sharp.
