Nikon Announces D850 Full-Frame DSLR: 'It Will Exceed Expectations'
Nikon has announced the full-frame D850, the successor to the D810.
Just in time for its 100th anniversary, Nikon has unveiled development plans for a new monster DSLR FX camera. The Nikon D850 is the successor to the 36.3-megapixel, full-frame Nikon D810, released in 2014.
Nikon did not reveal exact specs for the D850. However, the company did publish a sample of the camera's stunning 8K timelapse capabilities. The official release promises "a range of new technologies, features, and performance enhancements that are a direct result of feedback from users over the years who demand the very best from their camera equipment....it will exceed expectations."
At this time, it's anyone's guess as to which of the features users have been asking for will make it into the final build. Will the Nikon D850 actually have 45MP? Will it provide the ability to record video in 4K? Will it have built-in WiFi and in-body stabilization? Is the sensor curved? Does it feature the same auto-focus system found in the Nikon D5? Will it get an articulating rear LCD to make recording video more convenient?
We'll be sure to let you know as soon as Nikon releases more information. According to rumors, you can expect a ship date sometime in September.
