Digital SLR Photography - - Gear -

NIKON’S LAT­EST FULL- FRAME DSLR has been an­nounced and it looks set to be­come an in­stant hit, judg­ing by the pos­i­tive re­sponse from the pub­lic. Nikon claims: ' it gives full- frame pho­tog­ra­phers the ul­ti­mate com­bi­na­tion of res­o­lu­tion, speed, and light sen­si­tiv­ity', and fea­tures an FX- for­mat CMOS sen­sor with 45.4- megapixel res­o­lu­tion, no op­ti­cal low- pass fil­ter and a new gap­less on- chip lens ar­chi­tec­ture de­signed to cap­ture ad­di­tional de­tail and a wider dy­namic range. De­spite the very high res­o­lu­tion, the EXPEED 5 pro­ces­sor han­dles con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing at up to nine frames- per- sec­ond when us­ing the op­tional MB- 18 bat­tery pack ( stan­dard frame rate: 7fps), while the sen­si­tiv­ity range of ISO 64- 25600 is ex­pand­able to 32- 102400. Videog­ra­phers have 4K video at their dis­posal, while full- frame time- lapses can be cre­ated in 8K. The AF sys­tem is based on the D5 and sports 153 AF points, while ex­po­sures are han­dled by a 180,000- pixel RGB sen­sor. The range of fea­tures makes it suit­able for all forms of pho­tog­ra­phy from sports to stu­dio and pro­vides a se­ri­ous al­ter­na­tive to the Canon EOS 5DS/ DSR for those want­ing ul­tra- high res­o­lu­tion im­ages. The D850 costs £ 3,500 body- only and is avail­able now. www. nikon. co. uk
