The D850’s fast, ultra-high-resolution FX-format sensor uses 45.7 megapixels of effective resolution to deliver richly detailed 45.4 MP files. Print ultra-high-resolution images in ultra-large formats. Shoot true full-frame movies at 4K. The back-illuminated CMOS sensor has no optical low-pass filter and incorporates gapless on-chip micro-lenses as well as an anti-reflective coating. Incoming light reaches the photodiodes more efficiently so you get exceptional detail and incredible dynamic range. And the 153-point AF system, inherited from the D5, assures you of the pin-sharp focus and wide coverage you need for ultra-high-resolution full-frame images.
This is what speed looks like at 45.4 MP
Land the award-winning moment with the ultimate combination of speed, detail, and precision. Up to 9 fps burst rates at full resolution. Phenomenal autofocus. Reveal those all-important seconds with the ultimate combination of power and endurance. The D850 shoots at 7 fps. Or you can shoot at 9 fps when using the optional MB-D18 Multi-Power Battery Pack with the EN-EL18B battery (used in the D5) inserted. You get full resolution images, even when shooting in RAW, and the D5 battery allows up to 1840 shots on one charge (in single-frame release mode, based on CIPA standards). A dedicated AF processor ensures blazing subject recognition when you shoot a high number of frames per second: even small subjects moving at high speed in low light can be tracked with remarkable precision. And the camera’s dual card slot unit lets you use a UHS-II SD card and an XQD card—the fastest combination possible.
This is sensitivity to light, nuance, and expression
Reveal the details hidden in the darkest scenes and the deepest shadows. With a class-leading ISO range of 64–25600, extendable from 32 to 102400 (equivalent). Experience practically noise-free performance at high ISOs and incredible precision even when you shoot in near darkness. The fast EXPEED 5 processing engine inherited from the D5 ensures masterful image quality across the phenomenally wide ISO range. The sensitive autofocus system performs with incredible precision down to -3 EV across all focus points, and the central point performs at -4 EV (ISO 100, 20 °C/68 °F) . The 180K-pixel RGB sensor and Advanced Scene Recognition system deliver spectacular results down to -3 EV.
