Nikon confirmed the new Nikon D850, the successor of the fantastic Nikon D810 on its 100th birthday, this year. There had been many rumors and speculations about the camera’s specifications uptill now but none confirmed. Nikon till now has not officially announced anything.
This might be the best bet we have had till now. Some leaked Nikon D850 slides seems to have surfaced. The slides although in Chinese have much more details than we know right now.
- 45.7 Megapixel Sensor.
- 3.2 inch touchscreen LCD display (tiltable, vari-angle).
- Continuous shooting rate of 9 fps (when using a battery pack plus battery EN-EL18a) otherwise 7fps.
- Could continuously shoot 51 frames 14 bit non-compressed RAW photos at one time.
- Support 8K timelapse capture.
- ISO range of 64 to 25,600.
- 153 point Auto Focus System.
- 180,000 RGB Sensor.
- 4K Video Capture.
- Illuminated back buttons (hurray!).
- SD and XQD dual card slots.
- Low light focus -3EV, greater possibility to take photo under dark situation (same as D5)
- No low pass filter.
Here are a some slides that Nikon Rumors decoded:
– 9 fps * MB-D18 + EN-EN18a
– 8K timelapse
– 4K movie
– ISO 64-25600
– 3.2″ 2.36M vari-angle touch screen
– 153 AF system
– 45M quiet shooting mode
– 0.75x OVF magnification
– 180,000 RGB sensor
45M pixel gives you clear and sharp high definition image, could satisfy big outdoor advertisement which requires 8K resolution
– No low pass filter
– Standard ISO: 64-25600, boost: ISO: 32 to 108,400
– Using Eexpeed 5 (same as D5) processor, high ISO together with good noise reduction engine, could give you high quality of color reproduction
Pictures: demonstration of with and without low pass filter.
Using “spot area AF” to AF on very small area
– The size is 1/2 of “standard area AF”
– Suitable for shooting macro, focusing on a very small object

Here are all the slided translated in English by YouTuber Jeff Curtner.
Looking at all these preparations Nikon is taking, it is very plausible that very soon Nikon will make an official announcement to the general market and then soon after that unveil the D850. In any case we will keep you posted.
