45.7 Megapixel Back-side Illuminated CMOS Sensor

At the heart of the D850 is a back-side illuminated (BSI) FX-format full-frame CMOS image sensor with 45.7 megapixels and no optical low-pass filter. A marvel of ingenuity, it achieves extraordinary image quality, enhanced light gathering efficiency, faster data readout and truer color with virtually no risk of moire.

EXPEED 5 Image Processing

EXPEED 5 quickly processes all 45.7 megapixels of data for lower noise, wider dynamic range, subtle tonal and textural details, high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 9 fps1 and full-frame 4K UHD movie recording.

Dynamic Range Down to ISO 64

The lower the ISO, the greater the dynamic range. Like the D810 before it, the D850 has the lowest base ISO of any DSLR or mirrorless camera(2) - ISO 64 (expandable down to ISO 32).

Speed to Match Your Vision

With a continuous shooting speed of 7 fps or 9 fps using the optional MB-D18 battery pack with EN-EL 18b/a Lithium-ion Battery, the D850 can capture those perfect moments in action from a bride walking down the aisle to gravity-defying sports shots at it's full 45.7 MP resolution.

153 Point AF System

With 153 focus points, 99 cross-type sensors and a dedicated. AF processor, the D850 combines the best of flagship AF technology so that you can be assured that your high resolution images are as sharp as can be.

Autofocus Down to -4 EV

Focus in near darkness down to -4 EV to capture moody low-light scenes. Suddenly, fast NIKKOR primes and zooms can handle even lower light than before.

full-frame 4K UHD

Record 16:9 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) in full-frame glory using the total width of the D850's back-side illuminated CMOS sensor. Take advantage of the large sensor size for clean output at high ISO and for shooting with zero crop factor with full-frame NIKKOR lenses3, including wide and ultra-wide angle lenses.

4K and 8K Time-Lapse

Create jaw-dropping 4K time-lapse movies right in-camera or exquisitely-detailed 8K time-lapse sequences of up to 9,999 full-size stills using D850's Interval Timer Mode.

120 fps Slow-Motion

Transform dramatic moments into dazzling fluid slow-motion sequences. Record 4x (shoot at 120p, playback at 30/25p) or 5x (shoot at 120p, playback at 24p) slow-motion at 1080p

Versatile Sound Controls

When audio levels rise unexpectedly, D850's sound attenuator automatically reduces the microphone sensitivity to prevent distortion and maintain smooth recording with clear sound.

Focus Peaking

Confirm your manual focus with Focus Peaking4. Select high, medium or low sensitivity and red, yellow, blue or white highlights.

Selectable Highlight Detection

Avoid overly bright or blown-out highlights in your videos with D850's three selectable Zebra Stripes highlight detection patterns.

Streamlined Workflow

Seamlessly switch between RAW sizes of Large (45.4 MP), Medium (25.6 MP) and Small (11.4 MP), whichever fits your need or workflow. Save time with RAW batch processing right in the camera.

Built-in Wireless Connectivity

Transfer images to a compatible smartphone or tablet instantly using Nikon's SnapBridge app and the D850's constant Bluetooth Low Energy connection.
