Extreme resolution meets extreme speed.
When Nikon introduced the D800 and D800E, it set a new benchmark for DSLR image quality and super high resolution photography that approached medium format. Now, five years later, Nikon proudly introduces the next evolution in high resolution DSLRs, a camera that allows photographers to capture fast action in 45.7 megapixels of brilliant resolution. With remarkable advancements across the board—sensor design, autofocus, dynamic range, sensitivity, Speedlight control, battery life, shutter and mirror drive mechanisms, Silent Photography in Live-View mode, focus shift capability and more—this is quite possibly the most impressive, well-rounded DSLR yet.

- 4K Ultra HD video recording, slow motion up to 120 FPS at 1080p
- The lowest base ISO (ISO 64) of any DSLR or mirrorless camera
45.7 Megapixel Back-side Illuminated CMOS Sensor
At the heart of the D850 is a Nikon designed sensor like none before it—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. And with such a dense array of pixels, there's virtually no risk of moiré.
EXPEED 5 Image ProcessingEXPEED 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 64The 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 camera2—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 SystemWith 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 EVFocus 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.
Precision at Every Turn
Fast continuous shooting, flagship autofocus and precise metering.
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.
A Multimedia Powerhouse
Record cinematic 4K UHD movies in stunning full frame glory.
Versatile Sound ControlsWhen audio levels rise unexpectedly, D850’s sound attenuator automatically reduces the microphone sensitivity to prevent distortion and maintain smooth recording with clear sound.
Focus PeakingConfirm your manual focus with Focus Peaking. Select high, medium or low sensitivity and red, yellow, blue or white highlights.
Selectable Highlight DetectionAvoid overly bright or blown-out highlights in your videos with D850’s three selectable Zebra Stripes highlight detection patterns.
Inspired by Photographer Feedback
Next-generation features and performance enhancements designed with the user in mind.
Tilt and TouchThe tilting touchscreen LCD screen makes it easy to get the shot, even from high or low angles. Use Touch AF, Touch Shutter control and navigate menus, playback and more as if you were using a smartphone. Zoom in during Live View shooting and use the new Pinpoint AF to put focus right where you want it.
Focus stacking made easyCreate images with extraordinary depth of field using Focus Shift Mode. Set focal steps from 1 to 10 for up to 300 automated shots, which get stored in a dedicated folder for easy identification when using 3rd party focus stacking software6. High resolution meets high magnification.
Silent Live ViewWhen silence is golden—shooting golf, press conferences, weddings and more—turn on Silent Photography in Live View and capture without sound or mechanical vibration. In Mode 1, shoot for up to 6 FPS continuous at 45.7 MP. In Mode 2, shoot approx. 8.6-megapixel pictures in DX image area at approx. 30 FPS for up to 3 seconds.
NIKKOR Lenses: The Gold Standard
Nikon has been setting the standard for full-frame lenses for over 80 years. Gold Ring Series NIKKOR optics are among the finest lenses available, drawing peak performance from high-resolution image sensors like the one found in the D850.
