After <a href="http://www.canonrumors.com/off-brand-nikon-announces-development-of-d850/">last weeks interesting announcement</a> by Nikon that they are actively developing the Nikon D850 DSLR, specifications and images of the new full frame camera from Nikon have been hitting the web at a pretty fast pace.</p>
<p><strong>Nikon D850 Specifications</strong> (via: <a href="https://nikonrumors.com/2017/08/01/additional-nikon-d850-specifications.aspx/#more-114316">Nikon Rumors</a>)</p>
<ul>
<li>45-46MP full frame CMOS sensor</li>
<li>Improved low and high ISO</li>
<li>New and improved version of SnapBridge</li>
<li>No built-in GPS</li>
<li>Tiltable LCD touchscreen just like the D750 and D500</li>
<li>Memory card slots: one SD and one XQD</li>
<li>AF system from the D5</li>
<li>No built-in flash</li>
<li>Back illuminated buttons</li>
<li>Joystick selector</li>
<li>Built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi</li>
<li>8K time-lapse video capabilities</li>
<li>The D850 will be on display at the Photo+ Expo in October</li>
<li>4k UHD video in FX format (with no crop)</li>
<li>No EVF or hybrid viewfinder</li>
<li>Fast fps (8fps or more)</li>
<li><strong>New: the D850 LCD will have twice the resolution of the D810</strong></li>
<li><strong>New: slo-mo full HD 120fps video</strong></li>
<li><strong>New: the SD slot will support UHS-II</strong></li>
<li><strong>New: improved LiveView split-screen display</strong></li>
<li><strong>New: improved silent shooting mode</strong></li>
<li><strong>New: improved battery life</strong></li>
<li><strong>New: lighter than the D810</strong></li>

<p>This definitely looks like quite the camera based on the specifications that have leaked out.</p>

WOW!....I will say that I am very pleased with my Canon 5DIV...but the specs and probable price point on this camera have me jealous, no doubt! :eek:

That's a lot of juicy goodness if the rumors pan out!
I'll have to wait for detailed reviews before deciding if my beloved D800s will get upgraded.
I suspect it's gonna have an eye-watering price tag.

Quite the specs list. Wonder if we have a Sony 45 MP sensor in here like the A7R2. 45MP is awful high for general shooting. I know a wedding pro who laments the file sizes of the 36MP 810 already. I still think 20-30 range is ideal for most pro applications to keep big catalogs manageable. Prediction. The 5D4 still vastly outsells the 850.

That's quite a prediction. I shall watch with neutral interest. :) Never boring around here.

Just announced, will have same dynamic range as the D5

So let's get this right.
The D810 has twice as many pixels as the D5, has the AF system of the D5, has a burst rate of 10fps (12 on the D5), looks like it will have a better DR than the D5....
What reason will there be to buy the D5 if the D850 comes in $2,000 less than the D5?

for the same reason people choose 1DX II over 5D IV: it tracks better, gripped, better weather shielding, rugged to the tilt, higher level of customisation, built like a tank and weight as much. :D

Fair enough. But also the 5DIV has 'only' 7fps and the 1Dx2 has 14 fps - I think I am not alone in seeing that as a major differentiator for peak action and the 5DIV sensor does not offer much DR advantage, but if the D850 improves the DR over the D810, and the D5 was criticised for low ISO DR the two cameras are much closer together than the 5DIV/1Dx2.

MIke, so far I see 8+ FPS rumored for the D850. let's not forget about the megapixel count there. readout speed all that. 5DsR si what, 5 FPS ?? 8+ will be good enough.

The other thread mentions 10fps

As for data shifting, maybe it will be like the Sony and go down a gear to 12-bit files

So if this D850 is announced as 'under development', when can we expect it to hit the shelves?

Nikon history is faster fps need battery pack on bottom. Maybe 7fps only body, 9fps with extra battery.

Mike,

full (rumored) specs of the D850 surfaced. Thanks to Eldar for the tip.

http://thenewcamera.com/nikon-d850-full-specification-leaked/

Continuous shooting speed upto 8fps

it makes sense to me now. I strongly dislike Nikon colours, otherwise I would be tempted to take a closer look at this beast.. Guilty as charged... :D

Just seen that link myself. It looks like a the 5DS and 5DIV rolled into one - certainly a very interesting based on specs.

Who care about spec list?

All that matter is early leak of NEF file to photonstophotos.

Should've been the feature set of the 5D Mark IV! :'( :'(

You're so right. If the sensor magically gives 15 EVs of base ISO DR, who cares if it's only with 2 MP, 1 fps and 7 lazy AF points that occasionally get the shakes? ::)
