Nikon D850 Specifications | First Leaks.

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.

Quick List:

  • 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:

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

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.

Nikon D850 | Nikon 100th Anniversary Special Camera May Have A Hybrid Viewfinder.

After the recent 35mm f/2 curved full frame sensor episode, Nikon has been perpetually under the microscope. As you already know, Nikon on its 100th birthday announced the much awaited successor of the Nikon D810, the Nikon D850. (Nikon doesn’t seem to like the number ‘2’ very much).

Nikon Rumors released the first press photographs of the newly announced Nikon D850 a few days ago. Everything in the photograph looked as Nikon as anything, however there seem to be one thing that caught everyone’s eye.

The differently shaped top of the camera and an unusual switch near the diopter which suggests that there is something cooking under that hot shoe. Now no one knows this for sure, but the prevailing opinion is that the switch near the diopter is for switching between an EVF (Electronic Viewfinder) and an OVF (Optical Viewfinder).

To add more smoke to the possible fire, there are two holes near the viewfinder eyepiece. Mirrorless cameras generally have these kinds of holes to house the eye detection sensor which triggers the EVF on and off. Are these holes on the D850 for the same reason?

Just for your information, the Nikon D810 did not have any holes near the viewfinder. Is this what Ushida was talking about when he said “engineered with a range of new technologies.” Who could tell?

The new Nikon D850 will be now updated after nearly four years. It is not completely unrealistic to think that the camera may ultimately have a hybrid viewfinder considering that Nikon has patented a few hybrid viewfinders in the last couple of years.

Nikon has officially not come out and shared any specifications of the camera yet. As of now it is anybody’s guess. The Nikon D2, D3 and D4 all had those distinctive screw holes near the eyepiece, so it may ultimately turn out to be nothing but there is no harm in being a little optimistic I believe.

Feel free to use the comment section to share your own speculations.

Update (28th July):

  • The Nikon D850 has no hybrid viewfinder. It is a ‘regular’ DSLR camera.
  • Though the exact fps number is not confirmed, it would be in excess of 8fps.
