Five years after introducing its D800 and D800E FX cameras, Nikon has officially unveiled its latest FX-format camera, the D850. After showing off stunning 8K video in a teaser back in July, what may be Nikon’s most impressive camera to-date boasts 45.7 megapixels on its first back-side illuminated (BSI) FX-format full-frame CMOS image sensor which has no optical low-pass filter. Shooting in low light is no problem as the autofocus goes down to -4 EV with an ISO range of 64-25,600, expandable down to 32-102,400.

Featuring a faster EXPEED 5 image processor, all those megapixels are used at its full potential combined with the same AF system — 153 focus points, 99 cross-type sensors and a dedicated AF processor — as the flagship D5. Additionally, photographers will have 7 FPS of continuous shooting.

The continuous shooting equates to 513 consecutive shots in 14-bit RAW (NEF) or 170 shots in 12-bit lossless compressed RAW (NEF) while allowing for a seamless transition between the size of your RAW files: Large (45.7 MP), Medium (25.6 MP) and Small (11.4 MP). Nikon has also put its highest magnification optical viewfinder ever into the D850 with a 0.75x rate.

In additional to be a photographer’s dream, the D850 will also be a videographer’s best friend with full-frame 16:9 4K UHD (3840×2160) movie recording capabilities. Slow-motion can also be recorded at 1080p and sequenced at 4x (shoot at 120p, playback at 30/25p) or 5x (shoot at 120p, playback at 24p). Using Silent Live View Mode, you can render 8K time-lapse movies by shooting sequences of up to 9,999 full-size stills. About 70 minutes of video can be shot on a single charge while nearly 1,840 shots at full resolution are possible.

The Nikon D850 is available for pre-oder now on Nikon’s website for $3,299.95 USD and is expected to release in September.
