Nikon D850 | A Monster of a Camera


Nikon announced the formal launch of it's new full frame SLR - the 45.7 MP D850 which has specs far advanced than the current series of Nikon cameras. The specs of the D850 are given below and they are very impressive.  The options for three sizes of raw files depending on need, ISO going from 64-25,600, full weather sealing, advanced autofocus system, 7 fps which is commendable with a 45.7 mp sensor, 4K video capability.

However on the flip side is the body weight 915 grams and the price a wopping $3300 body only! Professionals would definitely buy this body instead of the D810 or D750 in the full frame space. It remains to be seen how the Nikon flagships like the D5 fare against this new monster of a camera!
